Computronic's Even the Score

 Insert coin.  Push play.  Wrap your hands around the joystick and let Computronic’s Even The Score tale you back to the glory days of playing Atari for hours on end.  Whether at the local skating rink or at home in front of the Atari 2600, the hours spent there never seem wasted.  They are, as one song on this cycle suggests, etched “forever in my mind” ...

 

 

Wind River - Movie ReviewScreenwriter Taylor Sheridan concludes his American frontier trilogy with Wind River, a suspenseful murder mystery set in the snow-covered barrens of Wyoming. Sheridan burst on the scene with his blistering essay on the epidemic of violence along the Texas/Mexico border with ...

Love Bites - Vampire Step-dad

Love Bites by Vampire Step-Dad is a modern day classic of the synthwave genre. I don’t suggest that lightly either. As a fan of outrun or whatever you want to call it, I am well aware that there have been several releases in the past couple of years that deserve attention but none, if I am to trust...

 

The Dark (1979) - Blu-ray ReviewNot all alien encounters will be friendly.  That’s the assertion made in The Dark, a wildly uneven production that is underlined by a super paranoid-causing soundtrack featuring the spookiest use of marimbas to date AND haunting voices that repeatedly whisper and hiss ...

Atomic Bonde - Movie ReviewYou can keep your Kate Beckinsale.  Move over Milla!  It’s official.  Charlize Theron is the Wonder Woman we need.  With Atomic Blonde, Theron becomes THE female action star by which all others should be measured against.  The character she plays, Agent Lorraine Broughton of  ...

The Witchmaker (1969) - Blu-ray ReviewDeep in the Louisiana swamps, a strange man tackles a woman – who just stepped out of said swamp – to the ground.  She is killed, marked with a hex symbol, and hung upside down from a cypress tree by her feet.  She is then drained of her blood with a slash to her neck ...

The Philadelphia Story: The Criterion Collection (1940) - Blu-rayHi-Ho Silver!

There aren’t many films as flawless in tone, performance, and spirit as The Philadelphia Story.  From beginning to end, director George Cukor’s film is perfectly balanced with charm and wit and, of course ...

The Haunting of Morella (1990) - Blu-ray ReviewWomen! Witchcraft! And b-movie maestro Jim Wynorski!  This tightlipped tale has it all. Producer Roger Corman always has been a big fan of Edgar Allan Poe.  Even before he made bank with his Poe pictures featuring Vincent Price, he was often returning to Poe’s ...

Spider-man: Homecoming - Movie Review“Face it, Tiger.  You just hit the jackpot.”  It’s the line Mary Jane says to Peter Parker when, in the comic book, he first sets eyes on her.  It’s sort of how I feel after watching this movie.  We. Just. Hit. The. Jackpot. om Holland is the full package.  He is both Peter Parker and Spider-Man ...

Queen of Blood (1966) - Blu-ray ReviewThe Russians won the space race with the launch of Sputnik-1.  They quickly followed their success with a bunch of interesting science fiction flicks that caught the eye and interest of famed producer Roger Corman.  Some of these cinematic tales were peace offerings to  ...

Annabelle: Creation - Movie ReviewThe pigtails.  The big, buggy eyes.  That wretched smile.  That damn doll is back.  And she’s ready for her turn to guide you through a funhouse of holy hell. Annabelle sits in the gathering darkness of a closed closet.  A little girl stands on the other side of the door ...

Zombie Nightmare (1986) - Blu-ray ReviewHeavy. Metal. Horror.  Rock on! I don’t know about you but a longhaired GIANT zombie, wearing gray sweats and a navy hoodie, stumbling through a recreation center swinging an aluminum bat sounds all sorts of crazy fun to me. The zombie eventually corners the ...

The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume OneAll praise goes to writer/director Australia’s Shane Abbess (Gabriel, Infini).  Remember that name, genre fans.  It’s going to mean something to you (if it doesn’t already) because what this artist has assembled with his latest release is going to stand the test of time. The Osiris ...
