THE FILM

It’s a damn shame that every action movie can’t be as good as ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘. So many action films will try, but will ultimately fail for a variety of reasons. Pure action filmmaking and movies just don’t get better than this movie. ‘Fury Road‘ is a troubled story to say the least. Original creator George Miller who made the original three ‘Mad Max‘ films had the idea for this fourth installment back in 1998. That’s 17-years ago. This project wasn’t necessarily put on a hold shelf, but a few things had happened to delay the film from being made. From 9-11 to foreign policy, to Mel Gibson’s infamous arrest, there were a variety of things that prevented this movie from seeing the light of day.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

This is more or less the same exact review as the 2D version of the film, which you can see here. The only difference here is there is an extra disc that sports the 3D version of the film. All of the extras, subtitles, audio presentations, and film itself are the exact same. And no, there is unfortunately not the fabled B&W version of the film here or on the 2D version. Maybe someday in the future we’ll get that, but if you want to read about the 3D presentation, skip down to the “VIDEO/AUDIO” section. Thank you and YES, this is a MUST-OWN!

If you want insanity coupled with a heroin trip you talk to Hunter S. Thompson, in his absence though, you watch the new trailer for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘! Director George Miller takes us back to the barren wasteland that sets the stage for the rocket-fueled performances from stars like Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Zoe Kravitz.

Film Review: ‘Fury’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Oct 16th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Fury-Poster-2

When Brad Pitt signs up to kill nazis in a WWII movie, you say, “YES”. This particular movie is called ‘Fury‘, and is a solid, very good war film. It’s brutal, violent, raw, and has enough of a fresh feel to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire 134-minute runtime. Instead of being out in the open, walking the fields of France or another nazi occupied country, ‘Fury‘ takes place mostly inside a small steel tank with five guys led by ‘Wardaddy’ (Pitt), during the final month of WWII. The claustrophobia sets in quickly and gives us an ample amount of time to dig deep into each soldier inside the tank.

The Greatest Trailer Ever Made is ‘Kung Fury’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 31st, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

Kung-Fury.

It’s been a long while since something so incredible like this trailer for ‘Kung Fury‘ graced the screen. I sure hope some Hollywood badass executive sees this and gives these guys $50 million dollars to make this into a feature film, because the world needs to see this. It has dinosaurs, a giant Viking, Hitler, nazis, kung fu,  skateboarding, and much much more. That being said, the people behind this trailer have a Kickstarter fund to make the feature length film. They set the price at $200k, and within less than a week, they are above $300k, with 24 days to go. Go and donate to this movie. Enjoy this trailer by a company called Laser Unicorns. Consider me amazed!!

The 1979 hit that made Mel Gibson a superstar is being re-launched….as is everything that was once great, good or even mediocre. George Miller is back to direct the franchise that made his name 35 years ago with Mad Max: Fury Road. Mel Gibson will be back, as well, but not in the lead role. That torch has been passed on to Tom Hardy (Warrior, Lawless, The Dark Knight Rises). Joining Hardy are co-stars Charlize Theron (Monster, Aeon Flux and Snow White and the Huntsman)and Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodiess, Jack the Giant Slayer and X-Men: First Class).This makes the first Mad Max movie since 1985’s Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.

JOKER – 4K UHD Blu-ray Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 7th, 2020

THE FILM


Todd Phillips is several oceans removed from his usual comedy escapades (The Hangover trilogy) with his brutally dark, yet brilliant film ‘Joker‘. Those of you who are not particularly fond of the comic book genre these days will still find something amazing in this DC universe that takes place in the 1980s. Joaquin Phoenix gives an unparalleled performance as the titular psychopath with a smile like you’ve never seen him before in pages or on-screen. It’s really something to behold, but then again, Phoenix is always magnificent. The real star of the film is director Todd Phillips himself, who for the first time showed that he can hang with the likes of Martin Scorsese, Brian De Palma, and Francis Ford Coppola, delivering a picture-perfect account on Joker.

Dan’s Ten Favorite Movies of the Decade!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 16th, 2019

Ten years! Ten whole stinkin’ years of wonderful movies to choose from and this list took me forever to settle on! It has been a great decade of movies across the board and narrowing this list to ten was painful. I have to be clear and say that these are MY 10 FAVORITES, not the best, not the most entertaining, not the most groundbreaking. These are Dan Moran’s 10 FAVORITES. Your list may differ and that is awesome because we all have different opinions! Enjoy my list.

Spider-Man: Far From Home – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 2nd, 2019

Spider-Man: Far From Home shows that if this is the direction they plan to go after Avengers: Endgame, then be prepared for another 10 years of Marvel dominance. The ease with which this film picks up after the events of Endgame while propelling a single character forward was actually unexpected to me. Maybe I was dumb for doubting Marvel, but I didn’t think that Far From Home would be better than 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it was.

Toy Story 4 – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jun 20th, 2019

The film that started it all was Toy Story. Pixar became a household name in 1995 with the release of their first feature film and changed the way animated movies were made and told. Pixar has since become a box office cash cow almost every year with each animated release. Their sequels even do well and dare I say some are even better than their predecessor, including Toy Story 2 and the incredible Toy Story 3, which looked to come to a conclusion in the Toy universe. It was a wide range of emotion, both happy and truly emotional on how the filmmakers ended Toy Story 3. It was like the perfect ending. Well of course, Pixar and Hollywood are a business and money talks. Since that’s the case, we now have Toy Story 4, which does nothing new and makes every thing worse in their own little universe. This is a blatant unnecessary sequel, but only succeeds on the tails of its already lovable characters and their superb voice actors.

‘Captain Marvel’ – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 5th, 2019

 

“Captain Marvel has some major flaws, but the payoff in the end is worth it.”

Coming in as the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Captain Marvel, which introduces us to a brand new character in the Marvel comic book franchise of movies. We’ve been with these superheroes for more than a decade now in cinema form and it could be quite redundant with another introduction to a new superhero. Captain Marvel has some major flaws, but the payoff in the end is worth it. If you’ve been watching all of the Marvel films, then you would remember the hint at Captain Marvel in the recent Avengers: Infinity War movie during the mid-credit sequence, where Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is disappearing and he uses a device that looks like a pager from the 1990s to page someone. That someone was Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel – Film Review #2!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 5th, 2019

“Captain Marvel is perfectly acceptable and definitely worth seeing.”

Captain Marvel is a victim of Marvel’s release schedule. It is a perfectly fine and entertaining entry into the MCU but releasing it six weeks before Avengers: Endgame just can’t help but permeate my review of it. I am here for the end of the Avengers as we know them and while Captain Marvel is good enough, I found myself looking for easter eggs and Avengers tie ins instead of focusing on this story on its own. I assume I won’t be alone in how that taints my review.

“The third installment caps off an incredible franchise with the most emotionally resonant chapter that gives all involved a fitting end.”

The How To Train Your Dragon trilogy has always rivaled Pixar movies for me. The animation is great, the voice acting is top-notch, the story and themes are full realized, and the emotional beats are earned. The third installment caps off an incredible franchise with the most emotionally resonant chapter that gives all involved a fitting end.

Film Review: ‘[KIN]’!!

by Janet White on Aug 28th, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Crash. Pew Pew. Woosh. Boom. Maneuvering through the ruins of an abandoned building, KIN opens with the coolest sound mixing that I have heard and literally felt in a long time. Eli Solinski (Myles Truitt) searches for scrap metal to sell, but finds a weapon endowed with great power and a secret that will alter his life. An outsider, Eli has few friends and lost his mother at a young age. It is no wonder why he is so reserved in his demeanor. At least until you mess with his family. Hal Solinski (Dennis Quaid), Eli’s father, comes home to find Eli suspended for fighting and his elder son, Jimmy Solinski (Jack Reynor) released from prison. Can his day get better?

Dan’s 2018 Oscar Picks!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 3rd, 2018

Here are my Oscar Predictions. I haven’t seen many of the shorts or documentaries so I didn’t even bother with those, but I have seen everything else that is nominated for the big categories except Call me by Your Name. Also, I fell asleep during The Post, but so did everyone.

As a hard and fast rule, I refuse to recognize any recent best picture winners until a movie comes along that was better on every single filmmaking level than Mad Max: Fury Road. This year is no different, so congrats to Fury Road.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Class of 1999’!

by Bryan Kluger on Feb 1st, 2018

THE FILM


Filmmaker Mark L. Lester has sure made a name for himself in cinema world, mostly being movies from the 1980s. He gave us some of the most homoerotic action films from that time, including ‘Commando‘ and ‘Showdown in Little Tokyo‘ to name a few. ‘Class of 1999‘ is no different either and is a sibling sequel to his film a few years beforehand in ‘Class of 1984‘. With ‘1984‘, you had a new teacher come to a violent high-school where most of the kids are in gangs and try to make a difference. Things get out of hand for sure.

Eli Roth (The Bear Jew and director of ‘Cabin Fever‘) has remade the 1974 violent revenge film ‘Death Wish‘. Instead of Charles Bronson, we now have Bruce Willis. This film was originally slated to release in theaters over the Thanksgiving holiday of last year, but the studio decided to push it now to March 2, 2018. The guy behind ‘Narc‘, ‘Smoking Aces‘, and ‘The Grey‘ (Joe Carnahan) has written the screenplay too. I’m sure this movie will be fun with some hardcore carnage and one-liners, or at least – let’s hope. Below is a ton of info about the film and of course the trailer.
