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  ...

Robocop (1987)

“Dead or alive, you are coming with me.” When I first heard those words coming out from the lips of RoboCop (Peter Weller), I was hooked.  Instantly.  There was no looking back for this fat kid: RoboCop, making its debut in 1987, would be my summertime jam.  The film might have ...

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  ...

Heathers (1988)f you really want to understand Generation X, you should probably watch Heathers.  From the satire of in-crowds and outsiders to the absolute ridiculousness of blowing up a school in the midwest, that frustration with cliques and institutions is one that most of my generation can ...

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  ...

Thunderbolt and LightfootThe image of Clint Eastood at the front of a congregation of faithful believers has always stuck with me.  That’s how Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, beginning with a very manic George Kennedy arriving to the wilderness church to put a bullet in Eastwood’s skull, begins ...

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 ...

Scary Stories to Tell in the DarkThere are things you probably know when approaching a scary-looking house that has long been abandoned.  If you have to break a lock in order to get in, then you should probably run in the opposite direction.  Quickly.  The teenagers in this horror film, from producer ...

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 ...

Road Games (1981)Butchering babes in motel rooms and burying them alongside the road.  That’s what you get here in this intelligently made thriller from Patrick’s Richard Franklin and smartly-written script from Everett De Roche. ...

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 ...

Blinded By teh LightBruce Springsteen. The name alone creates a number of iconic images. The fist raised in the sky. The bandana. The cut-off sleeves. Asbury Park.The BIG man on the sax. That worn guitar. The cars and the girls. Whatever it is for you, I assure you ...

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 ...

Berserker (1987)No, this title isn’t connected to Silent Bob’s Russian cousin.  You know, the one that kept singing, “BERRRRRSERRRRRRKER!” in Clerks.  That might have improved Berserker greatly.  Instead, we get a killer Viking warrior offing dumbass teenagers in Utah while they dance and listen to some pretty ...

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 ...

Amityville: The Cursed Collection

Objectified horror has found its home! If you ever find the replicate of the original Amityville house in your garage, but it is pint-sized (as in a dollhouse) leave it the fuck alone.  Don’t touch it.  Don’t bring it into the house.  Burn that fucker to the ground.  Hell, if you ever come in contact with ...

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  ...

The Blob (1988)What movie? You didn’t tell me about any movie!  The meta is strong in the remake of The Blob.  Too bad this remake often gets ignored because this version gets a lot of things about remakes damn right.  There is a lot to love about this flick and, believe it ...

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,  ...

Satanic Panic Poor Samantha.  It’s tough being a pizza delivery girl.  With little funds and no tips, getting around on her motor scooter can be quite unbelievably tough . . . especially if you happen to be a positive soul who likes to see the good in ...

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 ...

Godzilla: The Showa Era Films Blu-rayWhat do bathtub toy boats and plastic helicopters have in common with a dude in a monster suit?  Hint: the action takes place in Japan.  That’s right.  Godzilla, the mother of all mega-monster movies, is returning to run rampage through your home ...

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  ...

The Human Monster (1939)

It’s the eyes, man! It’s all about the eyes. Béla Lugosi (and those expressive eyebrows of his) definitely created a lot of memorable characters for cinema. He was always chewing the scenery and making each scene his ow; however, in The Human Monster (also known as The Dark Eyes of London) he ...

Deadpool 2 - Movie ReviewHey, Meatsicle! Get your ass some popcorn and go to the show this weekend. Another round of great comic book sendoffs has been sent to theaters and you don’t want to miss this shit. At all.  ...

Parasite (1982)Imagine if the original Alien had been shot for 3-D?  That chest-busting scene would have really leaped right off of the screen.  One has to think that producer and director Charles Band, in his pre-Full Moon days, had been thinking about that ...

Miss Stevens - DVD ReviewSo many movies have been made about inspiring teachers, you wonder what’s left to say about them. But the indie drama Miss Stevens tells a fresh new story about a very human, flawed English teacher named Rachel (Lily Rabe from American Horror Story) who connects  ...

The Wizard of Oz

It’s time to go back. Clocking in at a breezy 109 minutes, The Wizard of Oz is one of the finest examples of fantasy escapism that we have in film history.  Let that soak in for a minute.  Perhaps things would have been different had WWII not been right around the corner, but fact is fact ...

A Quiet Place (2018) - Movie ReviewThe horror genre is going to some interesting new places of late. With the recent critical and box office success of last year’s Get Out, the acceptance of last month’s intoxicating mind trip Annihilation, and now with A Quiet Place’s rousing world premier at Austin’s SXSW  ...

3 From HellThe Firefly Clan is back!  That’s right, they survived the shootout that marked the end of The Devil’s Rejects and, for the past decade, they have been rotting behind bars.  Except, as the movie begins, there seems to be a change of direction in the condemning wind circulating ...
