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 Rift (1989) - Blu-ray Review

The Rift (1990) - Blu-ray ReviewIt is essentially a cheaper version of Ridley Scott’s Alien, but underwater.  That’s the best description of The Rift (aka Endless Descent).  This knock-off is only one of the several underwater exploitative films that were rushed out from almost every studio – no matter  ...

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.

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.

Scalps (1983) Limited Edition - Blu-ray Review

Scalps (1983) - Blu-ray ReviewSix college students. A station wagon. An archaeological dig. And a tent. Those are the elements at play in 1983's uber-bloody Scalps.
