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 ...

Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals (1977) - Blu-ray ReviewNipples. Why’d it have to be nipples? From the very beginning of this Italian sexploitation-cannibal flick, nipples are the target. They don’t stop being one either. Of course, that’s after a flaccid penis has been hacked off and fed to a bunch of cannibals. Nom nom nom. ...

Black Panther - Movie ReviewLet’s get this out of the way quickly: this reviewer is a white male from Australia in his early 40s. I have not, nor will I ever refer to another person or cast with a preface of black, Asian, jupitarian, or anything else, because to this small fry in the world, we are people. I am ...

It's Alive Trilogy (1974-1987) - Blu-ray ReviewBigheaded mutant babies that kill? Forget the toys and balloons. We need guns! Filmmaker Larry Cohen is one hell of a writer. Sure, at the height of his career, he was crafting low budget exploitation tales but, for the most part, his work was ...

Mermaids (1990) - Blu-ray ReviewBecause you don’t mess with Cher. Just ask director Lasse Hallström or Frank Oz, who was first originally hired to take over the reigns from Hallström before he, too, was booted. And then there is Emily Lloyd. Poor Lloyd got dropped so suddenly (due to Cher’s whim about ...

Miami Connection (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewAgainst the Ninja! Let me see those hands in the air! Miami Connection is on blu-ray! Watching a movie as gonzo as Miami Connection, it’s seriously great, helps one understand just how incredibly awesome the 1980s were when it came to moviemaking and...

The Awful Truth (1937) - Blu-ray ReviewCary Grant. Irene Dunne. Together again or – if we are speaking chronologically – for the very first time as The Awful Truth, being originally released in 1937.

Doctor Blood's Coffin (1961) - Blu-ray Review“Peter! He’s alive!” With that sentence, one surgeon’s ugly truth is revealed.

The Return of Swamp Thing (1989) - Blu-ray ReviewIt. Has. Arrived. Science Fiction comic book comedies rarely get this good. Can a plant also be a boyfriend? If the girl is a vegetarian, then yes.  Over the top. Absurd. And EXACTLY what I want in a Swamp Thing movie. This is indeed The Return of Swamp Thing and it arrives ...

12 Strong - Movie ReviewIt has been a while since American military forces have deployed a good old-fashioned 19th-century horseback cavalry charge as an effective battlefield tactic. But that’s exactly what happened in the days immediately following the 9/11 tragedy as an elite U.S. Special  ...

Primal Scream (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewKiddos, when it comes to moviemaking, films RARELY get this ambitious. Primal Scream is what happens when Dashiell Hammett and Arthur C.

Commuter - Blu-ray ReviewAnd the late-career action hero rebirth of Liam Neeson successfully concludes with The Commuter.  That’s right, folks, this is it for Neeson.  Well, that’s if he is to be believed.  Is The Commuter the high note it needs to be for such an announcement?  Not really.  It is, at its  ...
