Tuesday Releases: Season Of The Witch & Sucker Punch

JUNE 28TH, 2011 By far the best release this week is “Sucker Punch” (4.5 Stars) which did not get very good reviews, but having seen it in the theater, I will probably end up purchasing it. “Barney’s Version” (4 Stars), with Paul Giamatti and Dustin Hoffman, was nominated for Best Make-Up at the Oscars this past year and was a great comedic film. Since … Read More Tuesday Releases: Season Of The Witch & Sucker Punch

Spotlight: Netflix Instant Picks – June 25th, 2011

NETFLIX INSTANT PICKS – WEEK #3 (June 19th – June 25th) Sticking to 10 picks this week because of the lack of good content being added. Next week’s picks should be better since Netflix Instant usually gets a ton of new content at the beginning of each month.   10 ) America’s Sweethearts (2001) Though not great in the realm of romantic comedies, a … Read More Spotlight: Netflix Instant Picks – June 25th, 2011

Theatrical Releases: Bad Teacher & Cars 2

Tons of films releasing this week, with “Cars 2” probably a shoe-in for raking in the cash both domestically and foreign. “Bad Teacher”, despite its lack of wear-with-all, will assumedly not do too shabby either. Next week, being a holiday week and with “Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon” hitting theaters as early as Tuesday, I feel that I will not be hitting the … Read More Theatrical Releases: Bad Teacher & Cars 2

Stuck On Repeat: “Iris” by The Goo Goo Dolls

TRACK Iris ARTIST The Goo Goo Dolls ALBUM City Of Angels   Easily one of my favorite songs from a film’s soundtrack, “Iris” by Goo Goo Dolls not only epitomizes the heart and soul of the film, “City of Angels” starring Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan, but captivates as a truly original and mesmerizing song. The music video alone is memorable enough to bring … Read More Stuck On Repeat: “Iris” by The Goo Goo Dolls

Tuesday Releases: The Adjustment Bureau, Cedar Rapids, & The Eagle

JUNE 21ST, 2011 Another average week for DVD releases, including the mediocre comedies “Cedar Rapids” (three stars) with Ed Helms and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules”, a sequel to the children’s book adaptation. Many people, myself included, were excited for “The Eagle” and “The Adjustment Bureau” to reach DVD, but after renting them and giving them both just three stars, they failed … Read More Tuesday Releases: The Adjustment Bureau, Cedar Rapids, & The Eagle

NETFLIX INSTANT PICKS – WEEK #2 (June 12th – June 18th) Cut down the list from 15 to 10, just because there was a lack of good content added this week. A few of these were simply rated well on the website, so I thought I would throw them in here.   10 ) Lost in America (1985) Having come across this while putting … Read More Spotlight: Netflix Instant Picks – June 18th, 2011

Theatrical Releases: Green Lantern & Mr. Popper’s Penguins

Again, not a great week for brand new films. The documentaries appear to reign supreme this week and it is a nice shift to have that be the case. There is something for everyone this weekend for the most part, with “Green Lantern” definitely setting up to make some money with the superhero and 3D thing for males, ages 10-30, Ryan Reynolds for the … Read More Theatrical Releases: Green Lantern & Mr. Popper’s Penguins

Stuck On Repeat: “Just Breathe” by Pearl Jam from Buck

TRACK Just Breathe ARTIST Pearl Jam ALBUM Backspacer Pearl Jam was one of the most influential grunge bands of the 90’s. Next to Nirvana, Pearl Jam is one of the most recognized rock and roll bands from that era and the mere fact that they are still around and still relevant to this day, make them one of the best bands to come out … Read More Stuck On Repeat: “Just Breathe” by Pearl Jam from Buck

Tuesday Releases: Battle: Los Angeles & Red Riding Hood

JUNE 14TH, 2011 Not a great week for new releases on DVD/Blu-Ray this week, even though 5-6 major titles were released. The selection feels more like what was picked over in the $5.00 bin at Wal-Mart, none of the titles really get me into the buying frenzy (which is fine since I am still hunting down a copy of the “Back to the Future” … Read More Tuesday Releases: Battle: Los Angeles & Red Riding Hood

Top 15 New Netflix Instant Picks (June 1st thru June 11th, 2011) Since I am starting this column a bit late in the month and since there were not fifteen “worthwhile” films that hit Netflix in the past week, I am going to include the first week of June in this post as well. 15 ) “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie” Relive your … Read More Spotlight: Netflix Instant Picks – June 12th, 2011
