Samurai Cop (1991) - Blu-ray Review

Samurai Cop (1991) - Blu-ray ReviewGod bless Samurai Cop.  Seriously.  Ranking alongside The Room and Troll 2, Samurai Cop rounds out a trio of films so fucking bad that they are unyieldingly hilarious.  You want to set the tone of a party right?  Rent this bitch.  The result of stitching together an action movie  ...

Dead Ringers: Collector’s Edition (1988) Blu-ray Review

Dead Ringers: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewAnd now it is time to get weird; really weird.  Jeremy Irons, man.  What a commanding actor, right?  Well, in David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers, he plays a set of talented twins that, after a simple misunderstanding over the same woman, turn their successful gynecology  ...

Phenomena: Limited Edition Collector’s SteelBook (1985) - Blu-ray Review

Phenomena Collector's Edition Steelbook (1985) - Blu-ray ReviewI first saw Dario Argento’s Phenomena when it was released here in the United States as Creepers.  That version – heavily edited by 30-minutes (for no other reason than to save Americans from actually thinking) – was essentially one long music video.  Goblin and Simon  ...

C.H.U.D. (1984) - Blu-ray Review

C.H.U.D. (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewHa, Criterion Collection.  It seems that little April Fools Day joke (back in 2011) has come to bite you in the ass.  C.H.U.D. has made it to blu-ray! There was a time in America when we surrendered to the idea of nuclear war.   It was bound to happen. Why fight it? This attitude  ...

Bubba Ho-Tep: Collector's Edition (2002) - Blu-ray Review

Bubba Ho-Tep Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewBubba Ho-Tep and I have finally made up.  I get it.  I finally get why the movie absolutely works and why my punk-ass comments when it was originally released were so naïve.  To borrow a line from from Gatsby's Nick Carraway, “in my younger and more vulnerable years”I was a complete ...

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - Movie Review

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - Movie ReviewFifteen years after the release of the first Harry Potter film and five years after the final film, Warner Bros plunges their hands back down the throat of the Sorting Hat and yanks out a NEW quintilogy in an offshoot of the world of wizardry that J.K. Rowling once assembled on the  ...

Finding Dory - Blu-ray Review

Finding Dory - Movie ReviewIt was only a matter of time before Dory got her own picture. Granted, no one could have imagined it would take Pixar 13 years, but we’re finally going back to Nemo’s reef to pay another visit to the forgetful blue tang and her finned, scaled, feathered, and tentacled ...

The Initiation (1984) - Blu-ray Review

The Initiation (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewAnd so we come to the blatant rip-off.  Perhaps that’s too harsh.  After all, there are some interesting things in the mechanics of Larry Stewart’s slasher (the finale inside the multi-level Dallas Market Center being one), but not enough to keep audiences focused on its  ...

Lights Out - Blu-ray Review

Lights Out - Movie ReviewMy mother was wrong. There WAS something hellish that lived in the pitch-black corners and darkened recesses of my childhood bedroom. And I always knew that the crawl space under my bed was the shadowy central hub of all that evil activity. I knew it to be, but I was ...
