Universal Horror Collection Volume 2 - blu-rayThe Universal Pictures archives are open again!  And we didn’t have to wait an entire year either.  This time, instead of following the Lugosi and Karloff route, Scream Factory takes us into the territory of mad doctors and murder most foul.  The four tales – Murders in the Zoo, The Mad Doctor ...

Us (2019)Part home invasion thriller, part horror, and part social commentary, the only thing more impressive than the number of genre elements at play in Jordan Peele’s newest film, Us, is the total body count. Well, that and the incredible attention to detail the filmmaker pays to every  ...

Critters Attack!No CGI!  Great practical effects and gore!  The Kritts, this time voiced by Steve Blum, return!  And this time they are comin’ back with the nastiest of attitudes and, at one point, in the form of a towering ball of flesh and fur! ...

The Best of Enemies (2019)The new film starring Sam Rockwell and Taraji P. Henson called The Best of Enemies is about finding common ground and learning to overcome our differences. Certainly a noble idea that could serve us all quite well in these divisive and contentious times. It's just too bad the ...

Corvette Summer (1978)We’ve all seen Luke Skywalker scoot around on the desert in a land speeder, but have we ever seen him pilot a cherry red Corvette Stingray with metal flakes and a glitter-flame dragon?  Hell, no!  Well, that statement might not be true, especially if you’ve already seen Corvette Summer, a  ...

Captive State (2019)Like the trojan horse at the heart of its central allusion, Captive State isn’t what it initially appears to be. Perhaps due to its dour subject matter, its refusal to kowtow to mass appeal, or maybe even because Focus Features didn’t truly know what to do with it, the film is  ...

The Chill Factor (1988) Blu-raySix friends.  A remote part of Illinois.  Snowmobiles.  And a Satanic Cult.  I mean, what could go wrong? The Chill Factor, produced and directed by Christopher Webster (the producer of Hellraiser, Heathers, Meet the Applegates ...

Captain Marvel - Movie ReviewSo here we are, staring down the tail end of the MCU’s Phase 3, with only Avengers: End Game remaining. Marvel had already triumphantly pumped us for the inevitable finale, but in an interesting move, they have made the penultimate film in Phase 3 a somewhat new ...

Strays (1991) Blu-ray

They have nine lives, we have one! Strays begins with a full moon.  The dark night expands as we drop to the ground and, rather suddenly, we are running through the night.  The POV is that of a cat.  Close to the ground and beyond slinky as we cross the ...

A Madea Family Funeral If you like Tyler Perry’s Madea movies, then more power to you. Go see his latest, A Madea Family Funeral. It is not the best in the series, but neither is it the worst. If you’ve never seen a Madea movie, prepare yourself for a disjointed comedic romp packed with cringe-worthy  ...

The Last Dragon (1985)A magical Motown martial arts movie? Oh, hell, YES! In fact, can I hear a “Sho’nuff” and an amen! ...

The Natural (1984)

Swing for the lights! I am not sure there is any other film in cinema that screams out AMERICANA as much as The Natural does.  It is steeped in everything that makes AND breaks America. ...

Picasso Trigger 1988Black Belts in shotgun?   Bombs on boomerangs?  Hell, yes.  So what if the lead character can’t shoot straight?!  When you are having this much fun, who really cares? ...

Night School (2019The trailers for Night School looked so promising. With talented comic actors like Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) and Kevin Hart, how could they go wrong? Rob Riggle, rapper Fat Joe and Taran Killam of Saturday Night Live fame round out a usually funny ensemble cast, but they can ...

This Island Earth (1955)Otherwise known as When Meteors Attack!!! Laugh all you want to, but there are moments – especially in deep space – when flying saucers drifting through clouds as meteors rip right behind them will have you doing more than just wanting to believe.  This Island Earth (and its Mutants) is a vision on  ...
