A Simple Favor - Blu-ray Review

Nancy Drew knows too much.  There is an elegance to the mystery that surrounds A Simple Favor.  It is made so much richer thanks to the performance from Anna Kendrick who, once again, nails her character with her quirky energy and down to earth nature.  With ...

Blue Velvet (1986) Blue Velvet, now finding its way onto Blu-ray with a brand-new 4K restoration from Criterion Collection, remains an intoxicating look at supposed small-town tranquility in which innocence fears to tread.  Written and directed by David Lynch (Mulholland Drive, Twin Peaks) after suffering through the wreckage ...

Death Kiss - Movie ReviewCharles Bronson is back! Our fearless avenging angel has taken to the streets once again to kick a whole lot of criminal ass. Thank GOD. I already feel safe knowing that his 32-caliber nickel Colt revolver is blazing out of its 4-inch barrel again ...

The Seduction (1982)Dreams might not always come true, Morgan Fairchild (at least that’s what the title song suggests).  The Seduction, written and directed by David Schmoeller (Tourist Trap), has little to do with dreams, but it has a lot to do with obsession.  Thanks to Scream Factory, the film is now on blu-ray so that you too ...

Venom - Blu-ray Review“Wow.  I have a parasite,” says Eddie to the clerk.  He just ATE a man threatening her with a gun.  She's speechless.  What better words could there be to describe Eddie Brock’s transformative condition?   “I am NOT a parasite,” roars the raging monster within him.  We hear  ...

Black Moon Rising (1986)Tommy Lee Jones needs that funny looking little car! Tommy Lee Jones IS Sam Quint.  He is a former thief, but now he is on a mission for the FBI.  And as the movie opens, he is standing front and center of a coffee machine, is in a gas station.  His Cherokee Chief is parked ...

Mission: Impossible - Fallout - Blu-ray ReviewIf there’s anything to be said about the Mission: Impossible franchise it is that it lives up to its name by continuing to defy the odds with its little game of self oneupmanship – each new installment seemingly doing the impossible by keeping the franchise alive, viable, and  ...

Link (1986)When chimpanzees attack!  Hide the knives!  Hide the pets!  Just don’t hide the undressed Elisabeth Shue!  Link likes!  Link likes! ...

Smallfoot - Blu-rayTo this day, there remains something insanely special about director Brian De Palma’s Carrie.  It is based on the once-discarded novel by Stephen King, but was painstakingly adapted for the screen by Lawrence D. Cohen.  Cohen got everything about King’s first novel right  ...

Leprechaun Collection Bluray

“Ya got a light for an old leprechaun’s pipe?” I fucking love the Leprechaun movies.  The first movie, starring Jennifer Aniston and Warwick Davis, set the bar for camp, comedy, and cutthroat kills pretty damn high.  It might have been slaughtered in its original release due to poor reviews, but the film survived the  ...

The Nun (2018) - Movie ReviewWhen it comes to matters of horror, religion will always be mined.  Life and death and the quest for what’s on the other side, right? The Nun, the latest spinoff from The Conjuring series, has been spooking people with its trailers for quite some time.  The film; however ...

Hemisphere - Box of Horrors - Blu-ray ReviewFantastic! Shocking! Frightening! Operating as a sort of sequel to the wildly popular Blood Island Trilogy of films, Severin Entertainment reaches back and deep into the dusty vault of horror films and wipes away the cobwebs from these five crazy-ass flicks from the Philippines with  ...

Ant-Man and the Wasp - Movie ReviewIn the post-Thanos world of the MCU, it’s nice to be welcomed into the comforting arms of a film we can simply sit back and enjoy. And that’s certainly the case with Ant-Man and the Wasp, a fast-paced, funny, superhero romp that is light on emotion and heavy on humor ...

The Chosen (2019)

It’s the big BANG, baby! We all know this wonderful existence ends.  But how?  Will we blow ourselves up in a nuclear war or will we drain the earth of its resources and go out slowly?  Will the end arrive with the zombie apocalypse or will it be a haunted affair?  Somehow all of this ...

Kin (2018) - Movie ReviewBorn from the pages of a short story, bottle fed on the milk of science fiction, raised on a road trip, and nurtured in the loving bosom of family drama, the new movie Kin is a curious but frustrating conglomeration of many genres. Certainly an ambitious undertaking from filmmaking ...

Anaconda (1997)This film was supposed to be my big break and it turned out to be a big disaster."  Yes, those are actual lines spoken in this flick.  Jennifer Lopez says them to Jon Voight and the scene, which features Voight hilariously responding in his ridiculous accent "it's been a long time since I had a ...

The Meg (2018) - Movie ReviewThe end of the summer season is upon us, Moviegoers.  What better way to celebrate the last hurrah of silliness then with a mega-sized shark causing all sorts of chaos at the cinema?  True, The Meg – about a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark known as the Megalodon ...

Just Before Dawn (1981)Because we all need to take a lesson from the Ty (Mike Kellin) and Vachel (Charles Bartlett) playbook! ...

Skyscraper (2018) - Movie ReviewAmputees attack! If you are reading this then you are probably wondering if Dwayne Johnson’s new action flick is as yet another brainless actioneer.  Skyscraper is EXACTLY that.  Dumb.  Stupid.  Shameless. The movie, defying gravity and logic time and ...

The Prodigy (2019)I am not a fan of kids crawling into beds for no good reason.  Sure the snuggles are great . . . but, well, maybe my own son creeped me out by too many times just standing in the bedroom waiting for me to wake up.  It puts me on edge, man.  Give me a creepy kid film and, damn it, I just can’t handle ...

Disobedience - DVD When successful New York photographer Ronit (Rachel Weisz) finds out that her rabbi father died, she flies home to London and stays with her married friends, Dovid (Alessandro Nivola) and Esti (Rachel McAdams). The rest of the Orthodox Jewish community is  ...

Rituals (1977)Rituals, underrated and rarely seen, is a masterpiece of moody mud-caked horror, especially the unedited version.  Never heard of it?  Well, that might be because this Canadian backwoods thriller – filmed in a charred-out forest – got unfairly dismissed as a Deliverance wannabe at the ...

Solo: A Star Wars Story - Movie ReviewMuch of the fun and joy of watching a Star Wars movie these days comes not from discovering something new, but rather from revisiting everything old with a new set of eyes. Whether the original series of sequels and prequels or within the Star Wars Story ‘tweeners,  ...

Police Story / Police Story 2 - Blu-ray Review

Chop-socky!?  More like cop-socky!  Police Story and its 1988 sequel are back in blu! ...

Ocean's 8 - Movie ReviewBecause crime is a family affair. I’m not going to say that we needed an Ocean’s 11 spin-off. All I am going to say is that, as an avid fan of Steven Soderbergh’s style-centric comedic heist films starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon, I am just thrilled to see the franchise ...

Iron Warrior (2987)It might be the best Altor movie, yes indeed, but that is still not saying much at all.  More artsy than what came before, Iron Warrior is a film which wants to do a lot of things . . but does not actually do a damn thing in its running time except leave audiences scratching their  ...

Upgrade (2018) - Movie ReviewWhat if all this autonomous technology and cybernetic artificial intelligence stuff we’ve so ardently allowed to slowly creep into our lives suddenly went haywire and began crashing cars, recording our conversations, and sending our most private discussions to random people in  ...

Robot Holocaust (1987)I don’t know about you, but ANY movie that begins with Wizard Video Presents and then manages to work its (pause for dramatic effect) title into the opening few moments of narration is sure to be a B-movie winner.  And, truly, the robot rebellion that ...
