Savages

Tuesday, April 23, 2013 1 Comment

Rife with gore, Savages definitely appeals to a violence leaning audience. The story, following two independent drug dealers who get into hot water with a drug cartel, isn’t all that unique. Sure, the love triangle (with the ever so sexy Blake Lively) had a slightly different spin than the triangulation we’re used to in movies, […]

Savages making its way to Blu-ray/DVD November 2012

Thursday, September 20, 2012 No Comments

On November 13th, Oliver Stone’s latest film, Savages, will be releasing on Blu-ray combo pack, DVD, and On Demand.

Both the combo pack (which includes a […]

Sid and Nancy

Sid & Nancy (Blu-ray)

Wednesday, January 18, 2012 No Comments

The insurgency of punk rock is a corner of time that I have but a feeble grasp of. I’ve heard stories and listened to songs from that generation, but being a product of the late 80’s, I missed it, fair and square. And that’s why I’m glad movies like Sid & Nancy were made. Following […]

The Adventures of Tintin: Season One

Tuesday, December 6, 2011 1 Comment

Drugs, alcohol, gunfights, boat chases, and maneuvering planes through storm clouds were all within the first two episodes (which was one story) of the first season of The Adventures of Tintin, which was recently released on DVD. And that wasn’t just a gimmick for the pilot episode to attract an audience, because every subsequent episode […]

Scarface Blu-ray

Scarface (Blu-ray)

Full of iconic lines, a memorable character, and lots of drugs and violence, Scarface definitely holds a place in film history. Oh, and I forgot to mention the acting, which was fantastic, especially Al Pacino who delivered an outstanding performance as the power hungry Cuban, Tony Montana. And even though there were a few minor […]

Holy Rollers

Holy Rollers

Tuesday, July 6, 2010 1 Comment

Hearing about ultra-orthodox Jews doing bad makes me giddy, seeing it in on the big screen is almost as gratifying as pornography! Holy Rollers follows a Hassidic Jew as he ventures into the business of drugs, and it was quite great. Jesse Eisenberg’s awkwardness actually fit very well with his character. One of the only […]

The informers

The Informers

Tuesday, March 16, 2010 No Comments

The Informers, a movie brimming with drugs and nudity, attempted to show how the lives of the rich and snobby can turn from glamorous to depraved, but failed oh so miserably. It brought up way too many stories and left them almost entirely unresolved. On top of that, we get little to no insight into […]
