Blu-ray Review: Into the Storm


Nothing but grey skies...

By Ben Mk (cinematicallyenigmatic.blogspot.com)

As moviegoers, we have a long-standing fascination with disaster epics. They're guilty pleasures, and we can't seem to get enough of them. Enter director Steven Quale's meteorological action-thriller Into the Storm, a movie which can best be described as Twister meets The Blair Witch Project. In it, a group of storm chasers tracking a monstrous weather phenomenon that has targeted Northern Oklahoma find themselves caught in its deadly and destructive path — all while cameras roll, capturing every moment of their harrowing ordeal on film.

Film Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1


The beginning of the end...

By Ben Mk (cinematicallyenigmatic.blogspot.com)

Together we stand, divided we fall. It's a recurring sentiment that has echoed throughout The Hunger Games film series, from its debut entry in 2012 to 2013's Catching Fire. But nowhere does it resonate with more fervor than in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, the penultimate installment in the mega-hit young adult franchise, which sees Jennifer Lawrence once again reprising her role as bow-wielding protagonist Katniss Everdeen. Only this time, it's no longer a game. And it's not just her life at stake, but the life of every single person in Panem.

Oh, What a Blu-ray Review: Jersey Boys


(Not just) all about that bass...

By Ben Mk (cinematicallyenigmatic.blogspot.com)

From Chicago to Dreamgirls, Little Shop of Horrors to Les Misérables, Hollywood has been mining Broadway's arsenal of stage productions — especially those of the musical variety — for cinematic gold for decades. With that in mind, the latest stage-to-screen adaptation, Jersey Boys, has been a long time coming. Originally brought to the stage in 2005, Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons has gone on to play to sell-out audiences worldwide. And now, nearly a decade later, it has made its transition to the silver screen, courtesy of director Clint Eastwood.

That's No Moon, It's a Blu-ray Review: Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions


A farewell to galactic arms...

By Ben Mk (cinematicallyenigmatic.blogspot.com)

With Star Wars Rebels now midway through its first season and a slew of new Star Wars feature films on the horizon, one thing's for certain — fans of George Lucas' space saga won't be left wanting for new content anytime soon. It makes you wonder: how did we ever survive the 16-year gap between the original and prequel trilogies? Granted, Episode I wasn't perfect, but you can't deny how it rejuvenated the franchise. For without it, we would have never gotten Star Wars: The Clone Wars. And now, the show's sixth and final season — dubbed The Lost Missions — has landed on Blu-ray.

Super Smart Philm Review: Dumb and Dumber To


Stupid is as stupid does...

By Ben Mk (cinematicallyenigmatic.blogspot.com)

Looking back on Dumb & Dumber today, it still holds up remarkably well. In fact, you might even say it's something of a comedy classic, for it helped make a household name out of Jim Carrey and launched the careers of Peter and Bobby Farrelly, who went on to enjoy greater success with films like Kingpin and There's Something About Mary. Now, the Farrelly Brothers, Carrey and Jeff Daniels have reunited for the I-Can't-Believe-They-Actually-Made-It sequel you've been waiting for, Dumb and Dumber To. And though their characters, Harry and Lloyd, may be older, they're most definitely not wiser.

A Blu-ray Review for the Road: Tammy


Here comes the "poom"...

By Ben Mk (cinematicallyenigmatic.blogspot.com)

Every comedian has their shtick. The trick is in knowing how to walk that fine line between entertaining audiences with it and annoying them. So far, it's something Melissa McCarthy has proven herself fairly adept at, with her roles in movies like Bridesmaids, Identity Thief and The Heat capitalizing on her own particular brand of crude humor mixed with genuine heart. And in Tammy, which McCarthy co-wrote with her husband and director, Ben Falcone, she once again reprises that familiar archetype, playing a down-on-her-luck loser trying to set her life straight.
