Samurai Cop (1991) - Blu-ray ReviewGod bless Samurai Cop.  Seriously.  Ranking alongside The Room and Troll 2, Samurai Cop rounds out a trio of films so fucking bad that they are unyieldingly hilarious.  You want to set the tone of a party right?  Rent this bitch.  The result of stitching together an action movie  ...

Dead Ringers: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewAnd now it is time to get weird; really weird.  Jeremy Irons, man.  What a commanding actor, right?  Well, in David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers, he plays a set of talented twins that, after a simple misunderstanding over the same woman, turn their successful gynecology  ...

Phenomena Collector's Edition Steelbook (1985) - Blu-ray ReviewI first saw Dario Argento’s Phenomena when it was released here in the United States as Creepers.  That version – heavily edited by 30-minutes (for no other reason than to save Americans from actually thinking) – was essentially one long music video.  Goblin and Simon  ...

C.H.U.D. (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewHa, Criterion Collection.  It seems that little April Fools Day joke (back in 2011) has come to bite you in the ass.  C.H.U.D. has made it to blu-ray! There was a time in America when we surrendered to the idea of nuclear war.   It was bound to happen. Why fight it? This attitude  ...

Bubba Ho-Tep Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewBubba Ho-Tep and I have finally made up.  I get it.  I finally get why the movie absolutely works and why my punk-ass comments when it was originally released were so naïve.  To borrow a line from from Gatsby's Nick Carraway, “in my younger and more vulnerable years”I was a complete ...

The Initiation (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewAnd so we come to the blatant rip-off.  Perhaps that’s too harsh.  After all, there are some interesting things in the mechanics of Larry Stewart’s slasher (the finale inside the multi-level Dallas Market Center being one), but not enough to keep audiences focused on its  ...

Majorettes (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewBad Acting.  Bad dialogue.  Bad movie, right?  Not quite.  There are exceptions.  The Majorettes, starring Kevin Kindlin, Terrie Godfrey, Mark Jevicky, and Thomas E. Desrocher, is one of those.  This psychosexual charged flick owes much of its creative prowess to its creators’ ...

Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze (1975) - Blu-ray Review and DetailsNever fear, Doc Savage is here!

With that joyous announcement, one of the campiest flicks to ever hit the 1970s leaps off the screen and into the hearts and minds of cinephiles everywhere.  Let’s get something straight first.  Doc Savage is completely ridiculous.  Full of knowing winks to the camera  ...

Private Property - Limited Edition - Blu-ray ReivewWith funding provided by the Packard Humanities Institute, the members of the UCLA Film & Television Archive have worked tirelessly to restore a small black-and-white crime potboiler that was thought long lost due to the unforgiving ravages of time.  The edgy film is a prophetic  ...

31 - Movie ReviewZombie is not finished with Halloween just yet, Boils and Ghouls. Rob Zombie’s 31 is not nearly as good as you’ll want it to be.  It’s also not as bad as other critics are suggesting it is.  The film does EXACTLY what it needs to do, but without establishing any real purpose  ...
