Aquaman (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

Despite the fact that the DCEU seems to be in a bit of a shambles, there have been two truly shining stars in the DC Extended Universe, Wonder Woman, and now, Aquaman. Due in part to the star’s, Jason Momoa, charm and presence, and the fact that this time around the story doesn’t feel rushed,…

Creed II (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

The Expendables 2 (2012)

Things got explosive, thunderous, and extremely over-the-top at the Scotiabank Theater last night for a red carpet premiere of The Expendables 2, featuring two of the cast, Randy Couture and Terry Crews (who is currently appearing on the brilliant show The Newsroom in case you still aren’t watching it). If you saw and loved the first…
