Neighbors- Blu-ray Review

Neighbors - Movie ReviewSeth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne certainly don't seem to belong anywhere near the conversation of great cinematic comedy trios, but that oddest of casting mismatches makes a bawdy splash in the genre with Neighbors, a raunchy comedy of intergenerational warfare that's  ...

The Equalizer - Movie Review

The Equalizer - Movie ReviewIf you missed the original The Equalizer television series upon which Denzel Washington’s latest actioner is based (and named), you’re not alone. The show, which ran on CBS for just a few short years back in the ‘80s, is mostly long forgotten and hasn’t even sparked a ...

The Boxtrolls - Movie Review

The Boxtrolls - Movie ReviewThe creative wizards over at Laika, who previously brought you Coraline and Paranorman, have waved their wands and – POOF! – done it again.   The Boxtrolls is another morbidly funny entry in their 3D stop motion animated film catalog and, while not as friendly as the  ...

Eraserhead: Criterion Collection (1977) - Blu-ray Review

Eraserhead - Blu-ray ReviewIn my younger and more vulnerable years, I mistakenly thought David Lynch’s Eraserhead was a wicked trip through a sort of nightmarish version of an industrial Wonderland without rhyme or reason.  I dismissed it for being surreal without reason and purposeless in its ...

Godzilla - Blu-ray Review

Godzilla (2014) - Movie ReviewLeave it to Godzilla to restore the balance as the 2014 summer box office begins to warm up and go nuclear. That’s right the King of the Monsters returns!

The Battery (2013) - Blu-ray Review

The Batery - Blu-ray ReviewRarely do cinematic miracles like The Battery occur for a mere $6000 and the cost of a butt-load of cigarettes.  The Battery, the directorial debut of Jeremy Gardner might be exactly what the zombie craze needs to keep its forward momentum smelling as fresh as daisies ...

Silent Night, Deadly Night: 30th Anniversary (1984) - Blu-ray Review

Silent Night, Deadly Night - Blu-ray ReviewReleased in 1984, Charles E. Sellier Jr’s Silent Night, Deadly Night did for Christmas what John Carpenter did for trick or treating: memorialize the day with a seriously twisted flick.  While not as popular as the coveted Halloween franchise, Sellier’s movie definitely does not  ...

The Skeleton Twins - Movie Review

The Skeleton Twins - Movie ReviewSNL alums Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader reteam for Craig Johnson’s The Skeleton Twins, a meaty little love story with sibling rivalry and family dysfunction as its central themes.  You’d be forgiven for expecting this to be a riotous comedy. After all, it does star one of ...

A Walk Among the Tombstones - Movie Review

A Walk Among the Tombstones - Movie ReviewIt isn’t quite January just yet but Liam Neeson’s next big action flick is already in theaters.  That’s right, Neeson – our beloved “January Man of Action” - is back on the prowl as a troubled ex-cop  (is there any other?) bringing Old Testament justice to the violent streets of New  ...
