Horrible Bosses 2 Blu-ray Review

Recently I watched two sequels on Blu-ray - Dumb and Dumber To and Horrible Bosses 2. The latter was the better of the two films, but that isn't saying much.  The aptly named Horrible Bosses 2 IS horrible and boring to boot. Once again Nick (Jason Bateman; Arrested Development), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis; We're The Millers) and Dale (Char...

When Disney released Big Hero 6 in 2014, they only slightly altered their successful animated movie formula.  Yes, it is funny.  Yes, there is a cute non-human friend guaranteed to offer mass merchandising appeal.  Yes, there is a terrible villain who must be stopped.   The only thing missing was the beautiful princess and ...

Lets get this out the way first Dumb and Dumber To is …well….dumb, I mean REALLY dumb. However, if you are familiar with the original Farrelly Brothers film, Dumb and Dumber (1994), you would except this. The story is pretty simplistic. After twenty years of Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey; Ace Ventura, The Mask) pretending to be cat... Read More

We've all had one of those "Murphy's law" kind of days – anything that can go wrong, will.   For Alexander Cooper it seems every day is like that and the day before his 12th birthday is no exception.  He wakes up to find everyone in his grade has been invited to the cool kid's party the same day as his, th...

Based on a Nicolas Sparks novel, The Best Of Me is out on Blu-ray and DVD.   Having not read any of his books, and only having seen a few of his movies, I didn't know what to expect.  A friend did say she threw the book across the room at the end, so I was a little concerned about the ending. While I am a fan of two of its s...

"Everything old is new again" and in this vain Disney has rereleased the animated classic 101 Dalmatians.  This special Diamond Edition introduces the 1961 film to a whole new audience and is sure to delight anyone who watches it.  Regardless of whether or not you've seen it before, the Blu-ray/ DVD is a great purchase to ad...

How would you feel if you woke up every morning not remembering a thing from the previous ten years?  Such is the plight of Christine Lucas (Nicole Kidman; Eyes Wide Shut, Batman Forever).   Every evening she goes to sleep knowing bits and pieces of her life told her by her husband Ben (Colin Firth; The King's Speech, Kingsman: S...

When Big City Attorney Henry Palmer (Robert Downey, Jr.; Iron man, Sherlock Holmes) finds himself traveling back to his small, Indiana hometown to attend his mother's funeral, he can't make plans to leave fast enough.   But when his overbearing, self-righteous father (Robert Duvall; The Godfather, Jack Reacher) is accused of murde...

(Nathan M Rose)  01/27/2015 8:23 AM EST
A couple of years ago 20th Century Fox launched a new satirical spy drama on their FX channel called Archer. The show caught on due to its tongue-in-cheek off-the-wall humor, it's distinctive style of animation, and the fact that adult audiences found the show good enough to wind down to after a days work.  For four seasons Archer pre...

I'm always fascinated by what motivates people, especially serial killers, to do the depraved things they do.  Unfortunately for me, "A Walk Among the Tombstones" doesn't delve that deeply into the Psyches of the duo killing and chopping up the women who are loved by drug dealers in NY.  Instead it tells the story of Mat...
