War is most certainly hell in FURY, but it’s also the only way to live…and die.
There’s almost always an awesome film coming out on Blu-Ray or DVD each month, so which ones should you pay attention to this month?
This weeks biggest releases are End of Watch, The Paperboy, Keep the Lights On, Kendra: Season 4, and Searching for Sugar Man. End of Watch definitely got a lot of awards buzz when first released, but was one of the notable snubs when the nominations finally were announced while The Paperboy got Nicole Kidman a
I missed out on seeing End Of Watch in theaters because my wife had heard about the shaky hand documentary style of filming that was rampant throughout the movie. When we watched it last night, it was one of the first things I noticed, and yes while it was shaky, it didn’t

Critics are loving End of Watch, but sometimes you have to be the rebellious one. Maybe I’m the proverbial “loose cannon” this time! I find it interesting that I’ve reviewed two found footage films back-to-back, my last being V/H/S, and it has caused me to meditate a bit on the
The International trailer for the upcoming Ruben Fleischer film Gangster Squad is here! It’s as awesome as the first trailer that came out for this film. The cast includes Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael Peña, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone, and Sean Penn. The synopsis: Los Angeles,
Here’s the first trailer for Ruben Fleischer‘s (Zombieland) new film Gangster Squad. The police drama stars Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael Peña, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone, and Sean Penn. Synopsis: Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten
It’s time for a weekly DVD/Blu-Ray Roundup! Here are the new releases for the week and my opinion on whether you should Skip It! Rent It! or Buy It! Most of these were released on February 21, unless otherwise noted. There’s nothing too indie here, so they can all be
