Beverly Hills Cop Trilogy

The heat is BACK on! Long before Detectives Mike Lowery (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) hit the streets in pursuit of crime and criminal activity there was plainclothes Detective Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) bringing his rather chaotic (and hilarious) brand of law and order to the colorful streets of ...

Ma (2019) - Blu-rayOctavia Spencer has been a staple in movies for years. She’s a talented, larger than life actor that almost always stands out in an ensemble, or kills it in a cameo. Quite rightly, she has been campaigning for a lead role in something that steps out of what she’s usually offered and  ...

Batman Beyond

The Golem's not headed your way, Willie.  The Golem has arrived!A beloved animated project - with some fans still clamoring for a live action movie version - is back on store shelves!  Batman Beyond, containing all three seasons of the cult classic and its movie finale, has landed on ...

The VelocipastorYour new favorite monster movie, clocking in at a zippy 75-minutes, will have you stomping your way toward extinction thanks to laughing so damn hard at its rubber-suited antics, its 1980s shock and schlock kicks ...

The Lighthouse (2019)Watching wickie Ephraim Winslow, who is already having visions of mermaids and tentacled monsters, fly into a momentary fit of rage, grab a one-eyed seagull, and then beat it religiously against a cistern until it is beyond dead might be one of the most memorable scenes in The Lighthouse, a  ...

John Wick: Chapter Three - ParabellumJohn Wick is one of those franchises that seemingly came out of nowhere. Keanu Reeves (deservedly) has maintained a level of currency through his lengthy and stellar career, but if we’re to be honest, his star was on the wane when he signed on to the ...

Silver BulletFinally.  With this Collector’s Edition from Scream Factory, a long-requested top 10 horror film arrives on blu-ray with a cleaned-up transfer and NEW supplemental items. ...

Doctor CyclopsA tiny horse. One mad scientist.  And a really big wrench.  These are only part of the gonzo territory of Ernest R. Schoedsack and Merrian C. Cooper’s shrink ray-centered tale of B-grade science and terror.  Dr. Cyclops and the obsession with shrinking things lives on!  The heroes ...

Booksmart (2019)Whether for good or bad, we were all labeled in high school. And whether we liked it or not, one of the most awkward times of our lives undoubtedly became the indelible forehead stamp that each of us has tried to erase ever since ...

Paganini Horror

Satanism and switchblade violins make quite the combination in this blast from the past! Luigi Cozzi’s Paganini Horror probably shouldn’t exist.  Sure, sure, I mean, the film does have some merit thanks to its wicked premise, but its execution - amounting to a bunch of screaming (mostly) female rock and  ...

The Secret Life of Pets 2One of the toughest challenges faced by screenwriters when developing a sequel – especially to a wildly popular animated film – is how to best capture the same spirit and vibe of the original while also taking the story and characters we love to new ...

Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932)Murders in the Rue Morgue was a gift to Bela Lugosi.  After being axed from Frankenstein, Universal Pictures’ President Carl Laemmle Jr. offered him the role of the lunatic scientist who abducts women and then injects them with the blood of his pet ape, Erik (performed by Charles Gemora).  Lugosi, not willing ...

Brightburn (2019)Creative writing courses talk about where that spark of an idea can come from, and how to nurture that possibility into something bigger. One of the catalysts most often encouraged is to pose a question. Writers Brian and Mark Gunn have most definitely asked a question in their creation of Brightburn ...

Teen Titans

Teen Titans, GO!  The pseudo-anime style.  The jokes.  And, man, the storylines.  Teen Titans has it all! This cartoon series - with a cast of superhero characters that included Robin, Beast Boy, Starfire, Cyborg, and Raven - kicked all sorts of ass during its original three year run.  Now, thanks to  ...

The Hustle (2019)The new comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson called The Hustle is an almost identical remake of the 1988 classic comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels which starred Michael Caine and Steve Martin - itself a remake of Marlon Brando’s Bedtime Story. I say “almost” because  ...

The Biggest Little Farm (2019)The only thing more difficult than making a feature documentary film may be running a farm. But farmer/filmmaker John Chester does both in his new film, The Biggest Little Farm, a sweet little documentary that chronicles the near-decade-long struggle of he and wife Molly’s plan to leave the city life behind and ...

The Peanut Butter SolutionAnd this is why you do NOT overdo it with peanut butter.  Thank God we can all learn from Michael’s (Matthew Mackay) messy misadventures with a lot of gooey crap and way too much peanut butter.  If David Lynch made a children’s movie, it is no stretch of the imagination to suggest that it  ...

Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

The King has returned - along with 17 other classic Titans - but, hey, long live the King! Continuing the plot of 2014’s Godzilla and 2017's Kong: Skull Island as far as the Monarch Corporation is concerned, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a creature-centered film that wastes little time in giving ...

The Fly CollectionContaining one of the most sickening and shocking unveiling scenes in horror history, Kurt Nuemann’s The Fly lands on Blu-ray this week alongside the other Fly-inspired movies.  I’m talking The Return of The Fly, The Curse of The Fly, David Cronenberg’s The Fly, and The Fly II from  ...

Avengers: EndgameEleven years ago, I snorted derisively at the audacity of the newly minted Marvel Studios plans. Without a single hit to their name, a grand plan had been hatched: they would release a litany of films, starring their various characters (that they still had the rights to) and combine  ...

Big Trouble in Little China“1, 2, 3 . . . we may be trapped.” - Jack Burton.

The Curse of La Llorona (2019) - Movie ReviewAn angry woman scorned eerily stalks the world’s rivers and waterways by night wearing a threadbare wedding gown as she looks for children to drown.

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 ...

Pokemon Detective PikachuPokémon Detective Pikachu is a cute movie.  I will give this family friendly flick, directed by Rob Letterman, that, but none of its cute and cuddly chumminess makes up for the fact that this movie doesn’t really know what or where it is.  The buddy picture borrows from all sorts of genres but is supremely ...

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 ...
