THE FLASH Ep.5: Quick Review & Promo Teaser

‘RAG DOLL’ – It was a very cool episode because they hired a real contortionist to play Rag Doll. Making him a very interesting and scary guy. Unfortunately though, they didn’t give him much to do.  The Flash was more character driven than Villain driven this time out, but I didn’t mind.  They finally took […]

DISNEY’S DUMBO: The Poster

Not much to say about the Poster.  It’s got everything you’d expect; a circus motif & a flying baby elephant.  But there’s no little mouse, and no sign of crows. And it looks pretty tame for a Tim Burton film. Though 1st looks can be deceiving… What do you think?

AQUAMAN: Behind The Scene Featurette

I usually don’t like to watch Behind the Scene features for a film I haven’t seen yet.  But I am so excited for this movie, I had to watch.  And it was pretty good about not giving too much away.  The Director and Cast talk about the film enthusiastically, and what it was like to […]

Final Score Blu-ray Review

Dave Bautista makes a great action hero, but so far the only true vehicle for him has been Final Score. This Die Hard in a stadium (and therefore Sudden Death with soccer) is the kind of solid high concept action movie we need more of. Final Score is your classic story of a veteran (Bautista) […]
