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 ...

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

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  ...

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  ...

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.  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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 ...

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  ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

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  ...

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 ...

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 ...

Rituals (1977)Rituals, underrated and rarely seen, is a masterpiece of moody mud-caked horror, especially the unedited version.  Never heard of it?  Well, that might be because this Canadian backwoods thriller – filmed in a charred-out forest – got unfairly dismissed as a Deliverance wannabe at the ...

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  ...

Police Story / Police Story 2 - Blu-ray Review

Chop-socky!?  More like cop-socky!  Police Story and its 1988 sequel are back in blu! ...

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? ...

Iron Warrior (2987)It might be the best Altor movie, yes indeed, but that is still not saying much at all.  More artsy than what came before, Iron Warrior is a film which wants to do a lot of things . . but does not actually do a damn thing in its running time except leave audiences scratching their  ...

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  ...

Gas Pump Girls - Blu-ray

Fill ‘er up, Joe, the Gas Pump Girls are back in action doing what they do best.  Service with a smile! Welcome back to Hometown High!  Fresh faces!  Moral fortitude!  And, obviously, lots and lots of sexually repressed shenanigans ...

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 ...

Robot Holocaust (1987)I don’t know about you, but ANY movie that begins with Wizard Video Presents and then manages to work its (pause for dramatic effect) title into the opening few moments of narration is sure to be a B-movie winner.  And, truly, the robot rebellion that ...

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. ...

Kuffs (1992) - Blu-ray ReviewBecause Gleaming the Cube didn’t quite pay all the Slater-avenging bills!  Okay, I will fess up. When I originally saw this flick, it was for Milla Jovovich dancing around in her underwear and for no other reason. I mean, I guess I thought that maybe it ...

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 Brain (1988) - Blu-rayCanuxploitation goes for the head with director Ed Hunt’s The Brain.  Maybe not for everyone, but for those audiences out there hungry from some Cronenberg-esque madness, this is a pulpy movie that delivers the goods.  And now, thanks to Shout! Factory, the movie and its monster ...

Wonder (2018) - DVD ReviewIt can’t be easy to emote well under a face full of prosthetics, but Jacob Tremblay does a great job doing just that in Wonder. Based on the bestselling children’s novel by R. J. Palacio, Wonder tells the story of 10-year-old August “Auggie” Pullman. In many ways, Auggie’s like a ...

Tarantula (1955) - Blu-ray ReviewGiant hands and giant insects! Tarantula! has returned to prey upon us all! ...
