Back in 2013, director Ilya Naishuller made a short first person music video entitled Biting Elbows: Bad Motherf*cker. The kinetic energy surrounding the video and story caught the attention of film director and producer Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted).  With the help of Bekmambetov, as well as an IndieGoGo campaign,  the financing was in plac...

Oh how the mighty have fallen.  In the late 1970's, we fell in love with John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever and Grease. Then, we saw his resurgence in 1994 with Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.  Since then, he has had some hits and some misses in the movie business, and unfortunately, his latest I am W... Read More

While 2016 brought us "Captain America: Civil War", "Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice", "X-men Apocalypse", and many other films with a semicolon in its title, there were a few surprises tucked in between and one of those films is being released on Bluray, DVD and Digital Download by The Weinstein Company this week....

In my opinion, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the most underrated movies of the year so far.  It had everything an adult action film should have.  It was fast paced, full of explosions, had a real plot and great CGI.  I can't understand why it received such bad reviews when it ran in theaters, but I for on...

If you were a child of the 80's, you will undoubtedly remember the classic movie, Ghostbusters, starring Dan Aykroyd (The Blues Brothers), Bill Murray (Caddyshack), Harold Ramis (Stripes), and Ernie Hudson (The Crow).  I'm not sure why Columbia pictures decided to reimagine Ghostbusters, but for some reason it did.Dr. Erin Gilbert (Kri...

It was the biggest drug bust in US history.  A triumph for the Federal Government that took down over 100 drug smugglers in the Pablo Escobar Ring.  For Robert Mazur (Bryan Cranston; Breaking Bad), it was a few years' worth of work living a double life and always being in danger.  It was also bittersweet as he became friends with man...

Anytime there is a popular book series these days, it is a given it will be made into feature films; and Veronica Roth's Divergent books are no exception.  Allegiant is the third film in the Divergent franchise, and it makes its way into stores on 4K Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD on July 12, 2016.In the film, we see Tris (Shailene Wo...

There is something very cliché about waking up in your van with your band mates in a cornfield in the middle of nowhere.  Even more cliché is when you have to syphon gas from a car to get to your next gig.  This could be the beginning of a lot of great rock drama movies; but in this case, it is the opening of the new suspens...

It's a bird, it's a plane, It's Super… oh wait, no it's not.  It's simply a British Ski Jumper who came in last at the 1988 Olympic games and stole the world's heart.  Based on a true story, Eddie the Eagle teaches us to dream big, persevere, and to view life through "rose colored glasses". &...

As the old saying goes, "war is hell".  Of course that is true of the soldiers fighting those wars but even more so for the civilians witnessing the atrocities war can bring.  Everything from riots and bombs to lost limbs and life befall those not actually fighting in the war.  The toll it takes on anyone unlucky enough to ...
