Life Itself - Movie Review

Life Itself - Movie ReviewRoger Ebert might have been robbed of his ability to talk but he was never robbed of his voice. That’s the point of director Steve James’ documentary about this recently passed true American icon. That and to make you cry. This touching portrait of a critic  ...

Scanners: Criterion Collection (1981) - Blu-ray Review

Scanners - Blu-ray ReviewGrateful Dead.  Janis Joplin.  The Band.  Buddy Guy.  What do they all have in common?  Well, other than being fantastic rock bands, artists, and live performers, they once upon a time in 1970 shared the same train as it traveled through Canada and played a series of  ...

Deadly Eyes (1982) - Blu-ray Review

Deadly Eyes - Blu-ray ReviewHailing from the early part of the dreaded 1980’s, it is safe to say that Deadly Eyes is not the most technically brilliant film ever made about marauding rats terrorizing humans and trains alike in subway tunnels. It is a Canadian low budget film made in the era of practical  ...

The Purge: Anarchy - Movie Review

The Purge: Anarchy - Movie ReviewKill or be killed. That’s the thematic thrust behind The Purge mythos as the real America totters on the ever increasing gulf between the rich and the poor.

Bad Words (2013) - Blu-ray Review

Bad Words - Movie ReviewJason Bateman is on quite a roll. After having his career resuscitated by starring (and starring again) in Arrested Development, he seems to earn only goodwill from all his projects – even the ones that bomb.

Lake Placid: Collector’s Edition (1999) - Blu-ray Review

Lake Placid collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewIt is a movie we didn’t know how to talk about. Released in 1999 and written on-spec by David E. Kelley, Lake Placid and its R-rated mixture of horror and comedy scared audiences away. Why? Because it was effective at its ambitions of being solely a trash-talking B-movie ...

Jodorowsky's Dune (2013) - Blu-ray Review

Jodorowski's Dune - Blu-ray ReviewMad genius. Visionary. Prophet. Egomaniac. Whatever word you use to describe cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky would probably be correct.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - Movie Review

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - Movie ReviewFinally. Want to see an ape win an Academy Award? Look no further than Andy Serkis as Caesar in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes for the chance.

Deliver Us From Evil - Movie Review

Deliver Us From Evil - Movie ReviewDeliver Us From Evil is perhaps one of the most stomach churning, no holds-barred films I have seen in recent years.
