Captain America: The Winter Soldier
I'll be honest with you, I wasn't all that excited for this movie when I saw the first trailer. The first Captain America was a dud, my vote for the worst Marvel movie leading up to The Avengers. …

Jusitce League: Flashpoint Paradox
With as long as many of these DC characters have been around, I would imagine that some writers and illustrators certainly have their work cut out for themselves when it comes to crafting a tale that’s …

The Croods
You really have to hand it to DreamWorks; often considered second fiddle to the mastery of the CG craft that is Pixar, these guys just continue to release solid family flick after solid family flick.  …

Everyone's Hero (2006)
Everyone’s Hero is one of those rare animated features that boasted a pretty hardy theatrical run but slipped onto the DVD scene fairly quietly and slipped into relative obscurity since.  It’s …

Brave
To animated film students and CG geeks in general, the geniuses responsible for the Pixar classics we know and love have become something of celebrities themselves.  John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete …

R.I.P.D. (2013 film)
R.I.P.D. didn't have a chance.  Based on a rather unknown comic with a premise that isn't too different from what were already popular movies in Ghostbusters and Men In Black and both of …

The Seasoning House
I never like to mince words on what I think of any particular film or DVD, and, under most circumstances, THE SEASONING HOUSE is one of those flicks I can take or leave.  At its core, it’s …
reviewed Unions for Beginners. November 17, 2013

Antiviral (2013 film)
Plenty has been written about the films of David Cronenberg.  I don’t want to paint myself into a corner, but I’m one of those rare few that has failed to draw much inspiration from his …

'The Counselor' Directed By Ridley Scott
I don't know if it's cause I've seen too many genre movies or if I really try and look for too much meaning, symbolism or thought in a movie but I honestly don't think I over analyzed …
