Lone Wolf McQuaideChuck Norris, soaked in a profile of shadows, standing atop a red bluff in the Southwest might be one of the most striking images in Lone Wolf McQuade, an action flick which prides itself in showing the rugged manliness of one man’s individualism against a crazy force of criminal activity  ...

Happy Death Day 2U

Beware! The Baby Mask Killer is back. If 2017’s surprise time-loop slasher Happy Death Day was rightfully called a mash-up of Groundhog Day and Scream, then its follow-up, Happy Death Day 2U can be called a strange combination of Weird Science, The Butterfly Effect ...

The Gates of HellIt shouldn’t be a shock to anyone that this horror classic begins with a scream. It’s as if writer/director Lucio Fulci is already expecting the shrieking as Father William Thomas (Fabrizio Jovine) wanders aimlessly around a cemetery. The slow driving beat of the electronic score from ...

Escape Room - Movie ReviewFortunately, the Tide Pods Challenge went untouched by Hollywood. The same can’t be said about the escape room craze however, as Sony’s latest, called Escape Room is a clever little high-concept psychological horror film that plays off the raging escape room phenomenon  ...

Gappa: The Triphibian Monster

Glass - Movie ReviewWith his latest film called Glass, filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan, has actually managed to pull the rug out from under us yet again with one of his biggest and most amazing twists to date. I’m not kidding here, folks. This one is a doozy. ...

The MechanicStay loose!  The original classic, The Mechanic, is back for your viewing pleasure and it's been carefully remastered in 2K thanks to Scorpion Releasing.  Prepare for this assassin, a member of an unnamed top secret organization, to absolutely blow you away with its meticulous pacing and its  ...

Fighting With My FamilyFighting With My Family is the heartwarming new comedy based on the incredible true story of one of WWE’s biggest female wrestling superstars, Paige. Wait! This isn’t a wrestling movie. And before you click away to dismiss the film as a ridiculously silly, amped-up, ...

They Came From Beyond SpaceDanger, high voltage!  They Came From Beyond Space, a low-key alien flick from the 1960s has arrived on blu-ray thanks to Kino Lorber with a brand-new 4K master.  Don’t get too excited by that cover art, though.  It looks awesome, but has nothing to do with the film itself. ...

The Kid Who WOuld Be King - Blu-rayFace it, you didn’t go see this film when it was released. The advertisements didn’t sell it well enough, did they? Well, this box office bomb is actually pretty damn good. It might be, for a kid’s movie, too long, but The Kid Who Would Be King has a great message and an even  ...

Al Adamson CollectionWant punishment or pleasure?  I guess that depends on your take on Al Adamson's filmography because Severin Films has gone and done it again, making blu-ray history with the quickie king of kernel-sized trash filmmaking thanks to their MASSIVE release of Al Adamson: The Masterpiece Collection, the most comprehensive Blu-ray Box set ever dedicated to the works ...

BumblebeeThe greatest thing that ever happened to the Transformers movie franchise was Michael Bay’s departure.  Fact.  Let the reboot begin!  Bumblebee has arrived and it, operating as a prequel (or as like to consider it: THE ONLY TRANSFORMERS LIVE-ACTION FILM), ushers in a  ...

Hell RidersA silk-suited jogging Adam West (Batman) in a bizarro biker flick?  Where the hell do I sign up to see this example of gonzo-like gear-head shenanigans?!  Turns out the new Vinegar Syndrome Archive line - complete with a hand numbered slipcase that opens from the ...

Glass - Movie ReviewM. Night Shyamalan is responsible for one of the most brilliant supernatural thrillers, and one of the most impressive cinematic twists in film history: The Sixth Sense. That film established him as a wunderkind filmmaker and immediately  ...

Brahms: The Boy II

It's the sequel no one wanted.  Go in knowing this. The opening few minutes of Brahms: The Boy II are this film’s best.  Shocking and thrilling, an unsuspected home invasion rocks the idyllic world of Liza (Katie Holmes, Dawson’s Creek) and her son Jude (Christopher Convery, The Girl in the Spider’s Web).  It’s a ...

Aquaman (2018) - Blu-ray ReviewIn order to fully appreciate just how CRAZY Aquaman is, I suggest you being four or five beers deep.  Seriously. DC needs James Wan.  The proof is just how enjoyably bonkers Aquaman is, which Wan directed.  Finally free from the brooding destruction of Zach Snyder’s spin on   ...

Blood Tide

Beware, thar be sea creatures here! Thanks to producer Nico Mastorakis (Island of Death, The Zero Boys, The Wind), Richard Jefferies, the screenwriter behind Scarecrows, The Vagrant, and Cold Creek Manor, steps behind the camera for the first time and takes viewers on yet another ...

If Beale Street Could Talk - Movie ReviewLong thought untouchable for theatrical adaptation due to its tenuous structure and ethereal nature, author James Baldwin’s novel If Beale Street Could Talk gets the big screen treatment from Moonlight writer/director Barry Jenkins. And what a perfect combination ...

Escape from L.A.Because you never know when you are going to need stick matches! While the earthquake that opens John Carpenters Escape from L.A. and separates the county from the rest of California might be the stuff of fiction, it is NO stretch of the truth to admit that this post-apocalyptic sequel was ...

Mary Poppins Returns - Movie ReviewThere is something very honorable in modesty and not needing to always take credit for the joy one gives to those we love. The gallantry of self-sacrifice and doing for others quite often speaks for itself and doesn’t need the “hey, look at me” arrogance so prevalent in today’s  ...

Dolly DearestPut down that burrito, my friend, Satan is back on earth!  That’s right, Dolly Dearest has returned to finish the job it started back when it was originally released in 1991! ...

Crossbreed (2019) - Movie ReviewSlaughterhouse.  Four Eyes.  Know those names.  Clocking in at 86-minutes of sweat- inducing space madness, Crossbreed will straight up kick your ass.  No, it isn’t another exercise craze with fancy names for pull-ups and squat thrusts.  Crossbreed, directed by Brandon  ...

Zombie Island Massacre (1984)When the “zombies” start slipping vines over the heads of the island visitors and choking them to death, I’d say the vacation on this tropical island is over.  Mexico would have been so much nicer indeed!   ...

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) - Blu-rayThe American Ministry of Magic just got stronger.  It had to, of course.  The dark magic of Gellert Grindelwald (a fantastically evil Johnny Depp) is that powerful.  Opening with a flying stagecoach sequence, complete with winged horses and a sky-high jailbreak sequence ...

BreedersOh, boy.  If the alternate title shown in the opening credits isn't a sign of a really bad movie, then I don't know what it is.  Where do I even begin with this schlocky D-grade rip on extraterrestrial sex? If you are anything like me, you are aware of this movie for two reasons: Samantha Janus  ...

Creed IIYo!  Creed II, after a three year wait, has arrived and fans of Creed and the ongoing Rocky series will certainly be pleased with the final product.  Its physical brutality is matched with each and every emotion presented on the screen.  You will pump your fists and get teary  ...

Lonely Are the BraveLonely Are The Brave, starring Kirk Douglas, has a very poetic opening as a lone cowboy, sitting around a campfire, talks to his horse and then pushes his cowboy hat back on his head . . . to watch a passenger jet fly over his head.  Forget about open country, Charlie, this is a movie where fences and ...

Ben is Back (2018) - Movie ReviewThis country’s opioid crisis is hitting Hollywood in a big way of late as a couple of new films dealing with opioid addiction have released in cinemas recently. It is sad – and a bit ironic – that a devastating societal meltdown has become such lucrative fodder for the industry’s  ...

GutterballsGutterballs is Canuxploitation at its filthiest. And I mean that in a good way. I mean, not many horror films can advertise death by a maniac with a bowling bag for a mask as he smothers teengagers performing 69 on each other with their own private parts.  Choke on this!  But this film can and ...

Bohemian Rhapsody - Movie ReviewThere are few people in the world who don’t know the name Freddie Mercury, whether you’re a fan of Queen, born after he died, or have lived in a cave forever. As someone born the same year as one of Queen’s greatest hits, the title of this movie, it’s seems impossible  ...
