Dark Places (2015) - Blu-ray [UK] Review

Dark PLaces - Blu-ray Review‘Tis a rare thing, nowadays, when Hollywood will throw a buck at something that doesn’t have a Roman numeral next to it, or you have to place ‘re’ in front of make, boot, imagined, or some other such gentle euphemism for GAURANTEED buck, so we’ll run with it. It’s a brave  ...

I Drink Your Blood: Limited Horror Hypo Edition (1971) - Blu-ray Review

C.H.U.D. 2: Bud the C.H.U.D. (1988) - Blu-ray Review“I’m a hungry man!”  When Vestron Pictures originally released C.H.U.D. 2: Bud the C.H.U.D. back in 1988, they knew exactly the type of movie they had on their hands.  And it wasn’t a horror flick.  The sheer lunacy of following up a horror film with a straight comedy might ...

Kung Fu Panda 3 - Blu-ray Review

Kung Fu Panda - Movie ReviewThe skadoosh has returned.  After a five-year break, things effortlessly click back into place for the third (and more probable than not) final Kung Fu Panda movie.  It is an animated feature that hugs as much as it kicks with Po’s (Jack Black) swift swipe-to-air combos.  ...

Biggles: Adventures in Time (1986) - Blu-ray Review

Biggles: Adventures in Time (1986) Blu-ray ReviewNevermind the fact that the theme song – performed by Yes’ Jon Anderson – plays something like four times throughout the movie.

The Good Dinosaur (2015) - Blu-ray Review

The Good Dinosaur - Blu-ray ReviewThere is something painfully simple at work deep in the mechanics of Pixar's The Good Dinosaur.
