Inherent Vice wades under the weight of a layered miasma; one made up of marijuana smoke, murky memories, and a distracting socio-political fog. It's a 2014 film telling a 1970's story. But it's that gap in between that the story lurks; a tale told today in retrospect that got lost somewhere in the middle.
Gone Girl won the box office this past weekend with its dark and twisted look at a modern marriage and a murder mystery unlike anything you’ve seen on the silver screen before. David Fincher’s latest is a dream blend of suspense, drama, acting, and cynical humor that points a finger squarely at the expectations of our society and makes you wonder what kind of monsters we’re building just below the surface.
Edge of Tomorrow was a surprise hit of the Summer garnering much critical acclaim while it was in theaters. Now Warner Bros. is bringing the sci-fi action film home on blu-ray, and I’m here to let you know why it’s worth picking up for your home entertainment shelf.
Every month, a boy is carried up an elevator into a glade. He has no memory, no purpose, no place, but a maze surrounds the glade and its mysteries beckon. The Maze Runner is a high-tension, thrill ride of a film based on the excellent young adult book by James Dashner. Feeling like a mix of Lost and The Lord of the Flies, it does a great job of pulling the audience in and not letting you go until the credits roll. While it has its flaws, its benefits outweigh its faults and I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes films like The Hunger Games.
Universal Studios scored a comedy hit this Summer with Seth Rogen’s Neighbors, which saw him as a family man square off against the Zac Efron-led fraternity that moves in next door. Now the film is about to hit on the blu-ray and I got a chance to check it out ahead of time to see if the film is worth adding to your home entertainment shelf!
