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.

House on Haunted Hill (1999) - Blu-rayIn which the showman, with spotlights and all, actually becomes the show. I hold William Castle with high regard when it comes to horror.  Entertaining as hell, he could always be relied on to create an atmosphere with his many films.  Audiences are only now just ...

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 ...

Bad Ronald - Blu-ray ReviewThere’s a spot on the wall.  It wasn’t there before.  You move closer.  What is it? And so, you move even closer.  Closer still.  And then the spot moves.  It’s an eye!  Someone is inside the house.  Holy shit, man.  Screaming and running away are the only choices! ...

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.  ...

Trick 'r Treat - Blu-rayIt’s been eleven long years since I first saw this horror film and, yeah, I am still talking about it.  Why?  Because it’s THAT good and it turns out that there are still people out there who are virgins to its twisted tales of morbidity.  And now Scream Factory gives us a ...

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 Purge 4-Movie Collection - Blu-ray“Blessed be the New Founders! Blessed be the new America!” The Tea Party, born out of frustration from having their conservative voices and agenda ignored, are now in power.  What a difference five long years make!  When the original film was made  ...

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  ...

The SPiral Staircase - Blu-ray Review

Perhaps it is the close-up on the eyeball in the shadows.  Piercing.  Constant.  Terrifying.  Or maybe it is the SCREAM that stops a silent movie, separating the audience into steady streams of shock as a motion picture stops its own rollout to pay tribute ...

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 ...
