The Alien Dead: Limited Signed Edition (1978) - Blu-ray Review

The Alien Dead - Blu-ray ArtworkIt came from outer space to eat the living! With this tag, Fred Olen Ray’s The Alien Dead arrived in theaters.

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 Neptune Factor (1973) - Blu-ray Review

The Neptune Factor (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewWhile the results are far from perfect, The Neptune Factor probably began its life as an imagined undersea adventure with some unexpected moments of the bizarre.  It’s certainly creative with what it offers, but the results are beyond disappointing.  The film cuts its characters  ...

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  ...

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).

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 ...

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 ...

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.
