Parents: Vestron Video Collector’s Series (1989) - Blu-ray Review

Parents (1989) - Blu-ray ReviewFrom the brassy swing of the Perez Prado mambo to the hot pink splash of the movie’s title against the front of an Oldsmobile, the opening to director Bob Balaban’s Parents suggests this horror film is not like the others.  Parents, with its witty dialogue, its critical lens, and ...

Message from Space (1978) - Blu-ray Review

Message From Space (1978) - Blu-ray ReviewJapanese film director and screenwriter Kinji Fukasaku (Battle Royale) has certainly left his mark on filmmaking.  Notable for his extensive use of shaky camera techniques in the 1970s, his influences on film spread worldwide over his lifetime with his final film being  ...

Time Walker (1982) - Blu-ray Review

Time Walker (1982) Blu-ray ReviewKing Tut, how’d you get so funky? Comedian Steve Martin certainly knew the reasons why.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter - Movie Review

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter - Movie ReviewI didn’t really want to cover this release; I didn’t really want to sit through the hyper-realized gobbledygook that has plagued this series for the last three entries.  Hell, it isn’t very hard to suggest that incoherence has largely dominated ALL of the film adaptations of this  ...

The Man Who Fell to Earth: Limited Collector’s Edition (1976) - Blu-ray Review

The Man Who Fell to Earth: Limited Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewAlienation, thy name is David Bowie. The Man Who Fell to Earth is one of those movies so incredibly odd that it exists in a sacred sphere that is outside of time itself.  It has, in fact, improved with age becoming more emotionally impactful as David Bowie, playing the part ...

Ouija: Origin of Evil - Blu-ray Review

Ouija: Origin of Evil - Blu-ray ReviewArmed with a healthy dose of much needed restraint, director Mike Flanagan (Oculus) and co-writer Jeff Howard collaborate to save Ouija: Origin of Evil from the haunting lows of its predecessor.  It’s incredible to see just how much better the prequel is when compared to the  ...
