Bridge of Spies - Blu-ray Review

Bridge - Spies - Movie ReviewThere’s a lot to like in Steven Spielberg’s Cold War-era spy thriller Bridge of Spies: reliving memories of those old “duck and cover” educational films; fedora-clad G-men tracking shadowy figures who dart in and out of New York subway cars; clandestine prisoner swaps between  ...

Psycho IV: The Beginning (1990) - Blu-ray Review

Psycho IV: The Beginning - Blu-ray ReviewAs fond as I am for Anthony Perkins’ acting talents, I have to say that Psycho IV: The Beginning is a film best suited for those looking to complete the Norman Bates experience only.  It is interesting in that it operates as a prequel and as a third sequel to the horror series at  ...

10 Cloverfield Lane - Blu-ray Review

10 Cloverfield Lane - Movie ReviewWith more bang than it has any right to, 10 Cloverfield Lane sizzles as a convergence of two seemingly unrelated ideas provide an entertaining and wildly cracked ride. It is, hands down, the best genre film I've seen since Cabin in the Woods. High praise indeed and,   ...

The Boy Who Cried Werewolf (1973) - Blu-ray Review

The Boy Who Cried Werewolf - Blu-ray ReviewReleased in 1973 as the bottom-half of a double feature, The Boy Who Cried Werewolf never could match wits with its running mate, Sssssss.  Both were creature features.  Both were low budget offerings.  Both were weird enough, yet cult filmmaker Nathan Juran (Attack   ...

Goosebumps (2015) - Blu-ray Review

Goosebumps - Blu-ray ReviewGoosebumps, directed by Rob Letterman (Gulliver's Travels, Monsters vs. Aliens, Shark Tale), might have hit theaters about a year ago but the $131 million hit film is only just now hitting shelves on blu-ray.  Trust me when I suggest to you that the film – full of monsters, laughs,   ...

Hellhole (1985) - Blu-ray Review

hellhole (1985) - blu-ray ReviewI am sure there are some people involved in director Pierre De Moro’s Hellhole that wish the film did not still exist. The truth is that the cinematic sleaze contained in this flick almost didn’t survive the ravages of time. Culled together from the best sources available, Scream  ...

Zootopia - Blu-ray Review

Zootopia - Movie ReviewIt is safe to say that Disney's Zootopia is the shot in the arm that the animated community needed. It's exciting, funny, and completely (without apologies, mind you) subversive at each and every turn. Whip-smart and wild, it's the one sure thing this weekend when it  ...

The Return of the Living Dead: The Collector’s Edition (1985) - Blu-ray Review

The Return of the Living Dead: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewThank you, Scream Factory for this updated treat! Operating as neither a sequel to or a part of George A. Romero’s Zombie series, The Return of the Living Dead doesn’t really profess to be much of anything…except a hell of a lot of gory fun.  That doesn’t...

Our Brand is Crisis - Blu-ray Review

Our Brand is Crisis - Movie ReviewAs if he were preaching to the choir with his latest film, director David Gordon Green tells us in Our Brand is Crisis that politics is a dirty business. And with a timely subject matter so ripe for sleazy material, the opportunities with which to entertain us are seemingly endless ...

The Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen (1958-1977) - Blu-ray Review

The Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen - Blu-ray ReviewWith a ceremonial crashing of cymbals, Bernard Herrmann’s thunderous score – completely without the use of strings - kicks off the drama and stop-motion wonder in Jason and the Argonauts.  Directed by Don Chaffey (of Pete’s Dragon and One Million Years B.C. fame)   ...

Gods of Egypt - Blu-ray Review

Gods of Egypt - Movie ReviewToss this title in $10 dollar "so bad it's hilarious" bin at Wal-Mart, folks, because that's where Gods of Egypt is headed. Visionary director Alex Proyas (Dark City) goes the loopy B-movie route and, at the very least, offers audience a chance to laugh with his latest feature Gods of  ...

Carnival of Souls: Criterion Collection (1962) - Blu-ray Review

Carnival of Souls (1962) - Blu-ray ReviewCentron Corporation.  You’re probably more familiar with their output then you are with their name.  Housed in Lawrence, Kansas, this is the production company that supplied school districts across the United States with hundreds of educational films once viewed via film ...

Walt Before Mickey - DVD Review

Walt Before Mickey - DVD ReviewDreams don’t come true without a lot of failure,” the voiceover narrates in Walt Before Mickey (2015). To prove its point, the film then spends much of its 107-minute running time showing the huge amount of failure Walt Disney endured, before he finally hit it big with the   ...

Doctor Mordrid: Master of the Unknown (1992) - Blu-ray Review

Doctor Mordrid (1992) - Blu-ray ReviewDoctor Mordrid: Master of the Unknown is not a very good movie. Even on our pint scale of beer it earns the lowest ranking possible. It’s just lazy, lazy filmmaking on a project that, had there been a bit more effort put into its script and, well, everyone involved, could  ...

Sinister 2 (2015) - Blu-ray Review

Sinister 2 - Blu-ray reviewSinister 2 is not a good film. At all. To be clear, it lacks the spark that made the original flick a better than the average horror offering. Screenwriters Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill got lucky with the first film but they choose – here in the second installment – to unravel ...
