Fury - Blu-ray Review

Fury - Movie ReviewMachismo gets a proper dusting in writer/director David Ayer’s Fury.  This WWII tale of American soldiers at odds with themselves and the Germans around them is as grizzly and as violent as the war genre gets.  While it might not be an entirely true tale, a revisionist’s view  ...

The Judge - Blu-ray Review

The Judge - Movie ReviewThe verdict is in. The Judge is one of the better films I have seen this year. The unstoppable force meets the immovable object, in a Downey-fied, Duvall-laden holds-no-punches emotional slobber knocker. Downey, continuing his journey up the “mountain,” of stardom has  ...

Annabelle - Blu-ray Review

Annabelle - Movie ReviewJames Wan’s smartly made The Conjuring gets its first spin-off with Annabelle.  The demonic doll that kicked off Wan’s movie gets her own headlining gig.  You shouldn’t go into this film with high expectations, though.  Annabelle is a certifiable disappointment.  Oh, it might  ...
