Spooky HouseArriving just in time for a quarantined Halloween, Spooky House has re-opened its doors for all the kiddos to delight in!  While not my favorite Halloween film, this quirky comedy does have some laugh out loud moments thanks to a skeleton on a toilet and his magazine reading material  ...

Star Wars: Episode V - The EMpire Strikes Back

The greatest sequel ever made… There. Done… Oh, you want more? All right then. Star Wars changed cinema forever. Some say to its detriment. Its penetration into the world’s lexicon was all encompassing. It was in everyone’s vernacular after 1977, and made the left of field auteur George Lucas the ...

The Two JakesInfidelity made private investigator and war veteran Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) the man he is today.  We know this having seen the excellent Chinatown, but admits as much in the opening line of The Two Jakes, the 1990 Nicholson-directed sequel to that 1974 film, now on blu-ray  ...

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New HopeStar Wars’ new caretakers, Disney, have gone to painstaking work to be able to release this series of films for the first time in 4K. After purchasing the franchise from George Lucas, acquiring 20th Century Fox, and continuing the Star Wars saga with (so far) 5 new ...

Shivers (1975)

Release the blood parasites! One of the images that has long haunted my dreams and nightmares is that of a shirtless man bent over a nude woman’s body - which is placed on a desk in an office - as he opens up her stomach, pours acid into her open chest cavity and then, taking the same instrument ...

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)If one of the final moments of director J. J. Abrams Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker - two lightsabers sinking into the sands of Tattooine - hits you rather hollow, it is by the director’s choice.  The Skywalker Saga is over with this film, but what’s shocking is that it really doesn’t feel ...

Little Monsters (1989)Family cult classics?  Sure!  Little Monsters is back in action because knowing that urine and apple juice are interchangeable is something one needs to know early on in life! ...

1917 (2019)Filmmaker Sam Mendes gets down and personal with his new film, 1917 about two young British soldiers sent on an impossible mission to save hundreds of their fellow soldiers. Though largely fictionalized, his tale comes from an actual account told by his paternal grandfather who served in the ...

Cary Grant Collection: Wedding Present

Sometimes the road to the altar - or in this case, the justice of the peace - is fraught with unexpected unexpected bumps along the way, like a fun media-frightened Archduke, saving a gangster from drowning, rescuing a missing cruise liner, and prank calling an insane asylum ...

Harriet (2019)There’s a shocking, telling moment late in the movie Harriet (2019). Referring to a group of escaped slaves, the villain Gideon (Joe Elwyn) calls them “three bucks and a female with foal.” Of course, he does much worse throughout the movie. But that ...

Cary Grant Collection: Ladies Should Listen (1934)

The Awful Truth might have been Cary Grant’s first SUCCESSFUL screwball comedy, but Big Brown Eyes - with its witty dialogue and snappy performances - is, for my money' worth, the FIRST screwball comedy that he starred in.  Never heard of it?  Change that.  Quick ...

Black Christmas (2019)The latest iteration of Bob Clark’s ultra-gory yule tide slasher, Black Christmas, promises a modern take on the cult horror classic that stoked the fears of every sorority girl back in 1974  ...

Cary Grant Collection: Ladies Should Listen (1934)

“How could it be hot when it’s Chile?” Businessman Julian De Lussac (Cary Grant) is back in Paris and he doesn’t know what he’s doing.  At all.  Which makes this Grant-centered film, his 17th film, a fun jaunt down the romantic comedy aisle of a bygone era.  Ladies Should Listen, only ...

An American Werewolf in LondonI’ll start this review with a question. 4K has been out for a few years now, and although this reviewer has only recently dipped into this new resolution, I wonder why companies like Arrow are still going to the effort of releasing restored definitive and feature-laden movies from days gone by, at scanned  ...

Transylvania 6-5000 (1985)Cinephile Kiddies and Cretins, come gather round and let me tell you a story about two bumbling reporters who, on an assignment to Dracula’s home turf, uncover the continuing reign of a bi-polar mad scientist who experiments on people, turning them into crotch-grabbing swamp monsters ...
