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,  ...

Trapped Alive (2019) - Blu-ray Review

A mutant motherfucking cannibal in an abandoned mine shaft called Forever Mine? Oh, hell, yes. Mungo. Hot Rod. Face. These are three escaped felons that ...

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 ...

batmanHoly Astringent Plum-Like Fruit, Batman!  What have we got here?! Warner Bros Home Entertainment delivers the goods with the June 4 release of 1989’s Batman, 1992’s Batman Returns (both directed by ...

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  ...

Double Impact (1991)Twice the Jean-Claude Van Damme means twice the amount of nut-crushing splits AND twice the pairs of buttcheeks flapping about.  Be mindful, though, because these two Van Dammes will kick your ass while they try to get along with each other.  Double Impact, being one of the better ...

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.  ...

The Uncanny (1977)

MEOW! I’m going to start this review referencing a song from 1981.  All cats are grey.  Sure, it’s a Cure song (and one of their best produced), but the song and the mood it creates works here, too, because The Uncanny, in all its anthology ...

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  ...

Saint Bernard (2019) Premiering on Blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms May 14 from Severin Films comes Saint Bernard, a hallucinogenic journey into the mind of an artist that is, at once, on equal footing with the visionary mind and wit of David Lynch.  Never in my entire life did I think I would ...

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  ...

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 ...

Isle of Dogs (2018) - Blu-ray ReviewFoundations need to be shaken. Whatever happened to man’s best friend?  Isle of Dogs, written and directed by Wes Anderson, has the answer and it comes into focus via stop-motion.  This is Anderson’s second stop-motion feature but it might ...

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 ...

Ready Player One - Movie ReviewTo 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  ...

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 ...

Rampage (2018) - Movie ReviewRampage is really big. And really dumb. And, yes, really fun. The film works because NEVER EVER does it take itself seriously. How could it?! After all, this is a film whose only requirement is that it have a giant lizard (er, alligator), a giant wolf, and a giant ape pulverizing buildings into ...

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

Game Night (2018) - Movie ReviewWe all have that one friend. That over-stimulated, under-acknowledged, hyper-competitive jerk to whom everything in life is a game with an undeniable winner and a loser. There are a whole bunch of those kind in Game Night, the latest film by 2015’s Vacation reboot  ...

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  ...

Tomb Raider (2018) - Blu-ray ReviewAt least the filmmakers got the character right. Fist pumping all the way out of the theater this March, that was my big takeaway from this reboot. Finally, a Lara Croft film that felt EXACTLY like the character should. She just needed a better storyline. Maybe next time, right? ...

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  ...

Spaceballs (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewBy the 1980s, cinema was in well and truly in the post Star Wars world. Its monster success and permeation into the cultural zeitgeist still looms large over movies today. Like any profitable venture, those left bobbing about aimlessly in the wake of such a phenomenon try to ride that  ...

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 ...

Red Sparrow - Blu-ray ReviewIn which Katniss Everdeen gets down and dirrrty...but you still won't care.  From Russia with Love this spy game is not.  Red Sparrow is a spy movie that should work. It has a very talented cast and the story, about a former Russian ballerina who ...

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 ...

Desolation - Blu-ray ReviewHaving toiled for years in the Blumhouse movie factory as both intern and paid hand, it is readily evident that many good things rubbed off on Desolation director Sam Patton, as his first feature film is a certified gem in the world of indie horror. ...

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

Black Panther - Movie ReviewLet’s get this out of the way quickly: this reviewer is a white male from Australia in his early 40s. I have not, nor will I ever refer to another person or cast with a preface of black, Asian, jupitarian, or anything else, because to this small fry in the world, we are people. I am ...

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 ...
