John Wick: Chapter 2 - Blu-ray Review

John Wick: Chapter 2 - Movie ReviewEvery single time Keanu Reeves is written off or dismissed, he comes bouncing back with a powerfully charged character.  Hell, he even got booed for his performance in Knock Knock.  I think I was one of the eight critics who gave him credit for knowing the  ...

The LEGO Batman Movie (2016) - Blu-ray Review

The LEGO Batman Movie - Blu-ray ReviewLeave it to LEGO to get Batman right.

Fist Fight (2016) - Blu-ray Review

Fist Fight - Blu-ray ReviewFist Fight is the laziest and sloppiest “comedy” to come out of Hollywood in recent memory.  Mean-spirited and brutal, the film simply kills any and every chance it has at successfully being funny thanks to the over-the-top violence it embraces as two unhinged teachers ...

Slither: Collector's Edition (2006) - Blu-ray Review

Slither - Blu-ray ReviewGod, I have missed this movie.  Slither has long been my go-to movie when folks I encounter have questions about the often-misunderstood horror-comedy subgenre.  This is highly quotable material and it goes for broke in its commitment to entertain as the zingers and its ...
