Munchies | Munchi - Blu-ray Review

. . . but still no Munchie Strikes Back. Scream Factory resumes their Double Feature blu-ray efforts with the super campy creature feature double attack of Munchies (from 1987) and Munchie (from 1992).  Hide the candy!  This twofer offers two cult films, operating like ...

The Great Gilly Hopkins - DVD ReviewI’ve loved the young adult novel The Great Gilly Hopkins since childhood. So my reaction to the news of a Hollywood movie adaptation was, “They better not screw it up.” Well, I’m happy to say my fears were unfounded, and the filmmakers did an excellent job  ...

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation - Collector's Edition

Renée Zellweger.  Matthew McConaughey.  A bizarre chainsaw wielding family.  Leatherface.  The Illuminati.  Wait, wait, wait.  WHAT!? We were warned.  We didn’t listen.  This movie was always going to come out on Blu-ray and now, after months of preparation, the end ...

Daredevil - Netflix FindsThe opening sequence. Pulsing music surges. An unnamed red liquid drizzles out over the darkness. Our lady of justice is formed, bathed by this crimson element. Familiar cityscapes are covered, too. New York City. A bridge forms.  Following it, an angel and its church  ...

The Backlot Murders (2002) - Blu-ray ReviewIf it wasn’t for the over-the-top acting of Charles Fleisher (Who Framed Roger Rabbit) and Priscilla Barnes (Three’s Company), then The Backlot Murders, a satire of the horror genre, would be a total waste of your time.  But there’s a trick to  ...

Finding Dory - Movie ReviewIt was only a matter of time before Dory got her own picture.

The Thing From Another World (1951) - Bluray

Mechanic: Resurrection - Movie ReviewArthur Bishop is back.  He’s also pretty irritated.  You should NEVER mess with him while he is trying to eat.  And, as showcased by the always-charismatic Jason Statham, the specialist of accidental deaths at the center this violent tale of revenge proves the old adage  ...

Nail Gun Massacre - BlurayHow does the song go?  "Let the bodies hit the . . . BBQ grill?"  Because, yep, that's what happens in this seriously demented flick.  Are the steaks done already?!  Ready. Fire. Aim.  This Nail Gun Massacre has been reloaded ...

War Dogs - Movie Review

One need look no further than The Wolf of Wall Street or The Big Short to see that making raucous entertainment out of ludicrous, behind-the-scenes political goings-on is alive and well in Hollywood. That trend continues with Todd Phillips’ War Dogs, a much less insightful  ...

Doctor Who: Peter Davison - Somplete Season One

Classic Who.  The Beeb.  Blu-ray.  Newly remastered.  Need I say anymore? Because the new decade needed a new Doctor.  The changing of the guard – Tom Baker will always be MY Doctor – was inevitable, I suppose, for a long-running program ...

Star Trek Beyond - Movie ReviewStar Trek Beyond is a bold move.  It is also a risky one, too.  Thankfully, it gives fans EXACTLY what they want.  We are finally in deep space and, finally, free of Earth-based adventures. With its strongest female character yet being introduced here, Beyond is the  ...

The Swinging Barmaids (1975) - Blu-ray ReviewNasty girls in bunny suits!  Who needs ‘em?  Certainly not Tom (Bruce Watson).  Deciding early on that bosoms should always be well-covered, this strange dude goes on a one-man rampage in a seedy part of Los Angeles and delivers one savage attack after another ...

Ghostbusters - Movie ReviewKate McKinnon. Kate McKinnon.  Kate McKinnon.  There’s no denying that her comedic chops are on full display throughout the much-ballyhooed all-female reboot of 1984’s GhostbustersIF everything else about Pail Feig’s effects-driven spectacle failed, the absolute magic   ...

Force Five (1981) - Blu-ray

Thank God for Black and Decker!  Start laughing now because, with those words, one member of Force: Five, a "team" of martial arts experts (a term I use loosely here . . . even though this film is comprised of sports stars) assembled to rescue a senator’s daughter from a ...

The Mind's Eye - Movie ReviewThe Mind’s Eye is something special.  Look right below the title of this review.  You’ll notice the pints-of-beer rating, meaning that the film automatically falls into the B-movie category – even though it’s hitting theaters now.  I’m not going to pretend with you about the film and  ...

Wheels of Fire - Blu-ray ReviewForget about the search for water.  This time out in the cinematic wastelands , the general public simply wants topless women in skintight leather shorts!  And, financed by producer Roger Corman, Wheels of Fire aims to please ...

The Legend of Tarzan - Movie ReviewFew fictional characters have been through the entertainment wringer as many times as Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan the Ape Man.

The Phantom Empire (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewEver heard of the absolute suck-fest known as The Phantom Menace?  Yeah, well this similarly titled movie is much, much better.  The Phantom Empire, which features two nubile young cave "bunnies" wrestling with each other as its climax, is not unlike reading  ...

The Darkness - Movie ReviewI have to ask you this.  Do you believe in God?  You’re going to need that faith in order to survive this one, brothers and sisters.  The Darkness is a dull ride through familiar roads with actors and actresses more talented than the trappings of this bland and forgettable  ...

The Critters CollectionThey walk! They talk!  They bite the head off of E.T.  They even shoot tiny spikes from their pelts!  The Critters movies, last scene on VHS and crummy DVD releases, returns and they, with brand new 2K scans from the original film elements, look better than ever before!   ...

True Stories: Criterion Collection - Blu-ray Review

“I was born in a house with the television always on…” David Byrne, the lead singer of Talking Heads, has directed only one feature film . . . so far.  And his movie, True Stories, begins on the open road.  It is a dirt road that divides two agriculture areas.  A girl is on the ...

Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan - blu-ray ReviewThere are few other visual effects artists that I know of who continually inspire filmmakers as significant to the medium than that of special effects guru Ray Harryhausen.  His name alone conjures up images of giants, sword-fighting skeletons, monsters, and, hell, Medusa  ...

Blastfighter (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewWhen Italians do American-styled action flicks, they usually hit the stereotypes AND the action a hell of a lot harder than we do.  Thought First Blood was a tough watch, especially when the entire town gets blown the hell up?  Think again.  Because Blastfighter, directed  ...

The X-Files: The Event Series (2016) - Blu-ray ReviewSomething strange happened on the evening of the 24th of January this year.  People were actually watching Fox again; a lot of people.  When all fast-tracked Nielsen figures were in, the network reported that 13.5 million people, on a Sunday night after extended NFC  ...
