Black Eagle (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewThis movie is proof that downed US F-111 bombers and curious little boys do not mix. Make no mistake about it, the MVD Rewind Collection absolutely saves this film from its VHS dustbin obscurity.  The cover art – featuring a “Be Kind Rewind” sticker on the front – is all sorts ...

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 ...

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 ...

Breakin'/Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewYou can’t touch this!  Funny, charming, and definitely loaded with better moves than you’ve ever seen before, Breakin’ and its immediate sequel, Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, find their way onto a sparkling and crisp 2fer blu-ray release from Shout Factory.  Because dance fighting ...

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  ...

Fire Birds (1990) - Blu-ray Review“Cop a chill.  We are outta here!” Fire Birds, originally released in 1990, is the movie in which Tommy Lee Jones perfects being Tommy Lee Jones, the persona, and trains a motley crew of pilots in America’s war against drugs.  Fire Birds is also the movie where Nicolas Cage as  ...

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? ...

Godmonster of Indian Flats (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewThis is a movie about a mutant 8-foot-tall sheep.  Let that image take root.  It is both disturbing, overstuffed, and hilarious.  For that reason alone, Godmonster of Indian Flants is a must-see B-movie designed especially for the cinematic freaks out there. The ground trembles   ...

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  ...

Beat Street (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewBeat Street Breakdown, RUUUUUAHHHH!!!  Like it or leave it, Beat Street is back.  This is the film which for many, including the entire country of Germany, brought breakdancing out of the shadows, off the cardboard, and into everyone’s life ...

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 ...

Call Girl of Cthulhu (2014) - Blu-raAaaaannnnnnd this is why boys should not fall in love with demon brides.  Human sacrifices.  Summoning ancient Gods.  And hookers giving birth to mutant monsters.  If demented killings with dildos and fan blades is your cup of homebrewed tea, then Call Girl of Cthulhu is  ...

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  ...

Sasquatch: The Legend of Bigfoot - Blu-ray ReviewBigfoot Country is certainly very scenic and so full of wildlife that it certainly becomes a spectacle.  But, much life “squatching” itself, it can be a little … too quiet.  The lead-off movie in this grindhouse drive-in combo seems to be suffering from the “you had to be there” syndrome. ...

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 ...
