Mid90s - Movie Review

There’s no grand message in Mid90s, the heartfelt new film written and directed by actor Jonah Hill who takes his first turn at bat behind the camera. And there’s really not much of a story either. This sincere little coming of age film is perfectly content to simply sit back and ...

AXL - Blu-ray ReviewOnce again, I do NOT get the critical backlash against this Amblin-esque tale of a boy and his dog.  A-X-L rocks.  I mean, for those teens out there that are forever the outcast or picked on by the assholes of the world out there then this movie   ...

The Monolith Monsters (1957)

It is an invasion that never ends!  From Shout! and Scream Factory, The Monolith Monsters arrives to once again stomp out all those poor souls unfortunate enough to run into (or over) strange, black fragments of meteors that have fallen to earth.  Once exposed to water ...

Bad Times at the El Royale - Movie ReviewNothing in Bad Times at the El Royale is as it seems.

Shredder (2001)

Big air!  And even bigger coffee stains.  Wait.  What?  Horror has hit the slopes as a low-grade B-flick finds its footing (again) on blu-ray ...

A Simple Favor - Blu-ray Review

Nancy Drew knows too much.  There is an elegance to the mystery that surrounds A Simple Favor.  It is made so much richer thanks to the performance from Anna Kendrick who, once again, nails her character with her quirky energy and down to earth nature.  With ...

The Entity (1982)It just might be one of the scariest ghost movies I have ever seen.  There are few words to describe the sheer terror that this film, a classic tale of the supernatural, stirs up within me.  Time to keep one eye open in the night again, because The Entity is back in action, doing what it does best: terrifying audiences of all ages. ...

Leprechaun Returns (2019)

Where’s my gold?!  And just like that the leprechaun that has headlined his own horror series across eight movies returns.  Except this film, pulling a Halloween circa 2018, doesn’t want you to remember that the Leprechaun went to Vegas, to outer space, and to the hood ...

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  ...

Shaft (2000)

“It's my duty to please the booty.”  And just like that Samuel Jackson steals the character of Shaft from Richard Roundtree, who played the character for three films.  Or maybe he just continues to carry the ...

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  ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.
