The Lion King (2019)Although this isn’t the first of Disney’s attempts to redo their animated back catalogue, I think it had the hardest job. The mastery of motion capture technology and the sophistication that computer generated animation has reached allows them to deliver ...

Blinded By teh LightBruce Springsteen. The name alone creates a number of iconic images. The fist raised in the sky. The bandana. The cut-off sleeves. Asbury Park.The BIG man on the sax. That worn guitar. The cars and the girls. Whatever it is for you, I assure you ...

Rambo-first-blood2For a very long time, I wished that First Blood had been a one and done deal. But it arrived in the 1982, and anything from the 80s onward that made the studios money would like get a sequel with a roman numeral next to it. The remainder of that decade saw ...

Berserker (1987)No, this title isn’t connected to Silent Bob’s Russian cousin.  You know, the one that kept singing, “BERRRRRSERRRRRRKER!” in Clerks.  That might have improved Berserker greatly.  Instead, we get a killer Viking warrior offing dumbass teenagers in Utah while they dance and listen to some pretty ...

Rambo III (1988)Three years would pass before another go around with John Rambo and produce the most (at the time) violent action movie ever made. It marked a continued tonal shift of the character that had good intentions hidden in cartoonish, ham fisted  ...

Amityville: The Cursed Collection

Objectified horror has found its home! If you ever find the replicate of the original Amityville house in your garage, but it is pint-sized (as in a dollhouse) leave it the fuck alone.  Don’t touch it.  Don’t bring it into the house.  Burn that fucker to the ground.  Hell, if you ever come in contact with ...

Rambo (2008)If the last couple of years have taught us anything it should be never underestimate Sylvester Stallone. He was mocked at the beginning of his career and brought us Rocky. His popularity waned in the late 90’s and when word trickled down he was reviving not only his famous ...

Good Boys (2019)One of the kids at the center of the new comedy Good Boys confidently tells his two best friends, “It’s a tampon. Girls shove it up their butts to stop babies from coming out.” The object in question is indeed a tampon, they got that part right. But, of ...

The Blob (1988)What movie? You didn’t tell me about any movie!  The meta is strong in the remake of The Blob.  Too bad this remake often gets ignored because this version gets a lot of things about remakes damn right.  There is a lot to love about this flick and, believe it ...

The Peanut Butter Falcon - Movie ReviewFeaturing a special needs character in a film is always a risky proposition that has the potential to cross that fine line between exploitation and exposition. ...

Satanic Panic Poor Samantha.  It’s tough being a pizza delivery girl.  With little funds and no tips, getting around on her motor scooter can be quite unbelievably tough . . . especially if you happen to be a positive soul who likes to see the good in ...

Godzilla: The Showa Era Films Blu-rayWhat do bathtub toy boats and plastic helicopters have in common with a dude in a monster suit?  Hint: the action takes place in Japan.  That’s right.  Godzilla, the mother of all mega-monster movies, is returning to run rampage through your home ...

The Human Monster (1939)

It’s the eyes, man! It’s all about the eyes. Béla Lugosi (and those expressive eyebrows of his) definitely created a lot of memorable characters for cinema. He was always chewing the scenery and making each scene his ow; however, in The Human Monster (also known as The Dark Eyes of London) he ...

50 years of Planet of the Apes

‘It’s a mad house! A mad house!’ So it felt to me finding the entire Planet of the Apes cinematic journey in this new mammoth sized 50th anniversary set in the mail. I’ll try to keep the review succinct as there are 5 movies in the original series, the Tim Burton remake and the  ...
