The Jerk: 40th Anniversary Edition Blu-raySteve Martin’s The Jerk remains a comedy classic.  That is made clear thanks to Shout Select’s brand-new 2K transfer of the 1979 hit film.  Put this film in a time capsule already because, thanks to the vulgarity, the stupidity, and the damn sweet innocence of it all, there is  ...

Wonder Woman - Blu-ray ReviewWell, that’s more like it. Warner Bros. entry into a shared universe of super heroes on film has been a lot more miss than hit. I, admittedly a lifelong DC Comics’ reader, have grown tired of the comparisons made between Marvel’s output and everyone else’s ...

Sleint Night, Deadly Night Part Two: Collector's Edition blu-rayBecause Santa Claus only comes once a year, why not go back to the well?  Silent Night, Deadly Night Part Two has to be one of the most fantastically awful sequels out there.  Sure, sure, sure, it’s a pile of shit, recapping the original movie for half of the film before spiraling  ...

Snowflake (2018) - Movie ReviewMaking its blu-ray debut, Snowflake (originally released as Schneeflöckchen in 2017) proves that German cinema might just be on the rebound.  Taking on the subject of revenge might not sound so grand and ambitious of an idea, but what directors Adolfo Kolmerer  ...

Starman - Blu-ray Review

"You're not from around here, are you?" For many of us, it is the scene when the alien arrives on earth as a baby that freaked us out the most.  It was for me.  Sure, the explosion in the woods as the alien vehicle “lands” was pretty freaking cool but, truly, that scene where ...

That’s right, four decades after ...

Horror of Dracula (1958) - Blu-ray ReviewThe steady beat.  The blistering horns.  That powerful theme of James Bernard’s pierces the walls of this cemetery; it is majestic even.  It sounds like a procession as the camera marches us toward the tomb of Dracula.  And then, because we’d not have it any other way  ...

Going In Style - Movie ReviewWe’ve all been there. Aggravated to the breaking point by intolerable mistreatment from the man.

The Fate of the FUrious - Movie poster one-sheetBig DUMB fun.  Amen to that.

The Children (1980) - Blu-rayThere won’t be a soul left standing when our kids turn on us.  One touch is all it takes.  A single hug from one of these contaminated heathens and “BLAMMO!” your face turns to mush, splotchy with burn marks and red welts.  Receive a hug and you die.  That’s the price  ...

Saban's Power Rangers - Movie ReviewWell, Super Sentai it isn’t. As the bedrock of the kids’ television show, that’s not exactly a good thing for fans of the original series to hear.
