John Wick - Movie Review

John Wick - Movie ReviewKeanu Reeves turns 50 this year.  With age comes wisdom, I’m told.  Perhaps that is why his portrayal as the super lethal John Wick, a former hitman fresh out of retirement, is such a crowd-pleasing good time.  Wait?  What did I just type?  A familiar story that  ...

Cauldron of Blood (1970) - Blu-ray Review

Cauldron of Blood (1970) - Blu-ray ReviewSantos Alcocer’s Cauldron of Blood is such a weird film. After simmering in its own juices for three years after its completion, this bizarre tale about a blind sculptor named Badulescu who uses the bones of murdered women for his art finally saw the light of day.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman - Blu-ray Review

Mr. Peabody and Sherman - Movie ReviewHow’s this for reaching into the cob-webbed bag of arcane source material and pulling out a shiny gem of a TV-to-movie adaptation?

Fury - Movie Review

Fury - Movie ReviewMachismo gets a proper dusting in writer/director David Ayer’s Fury.  This WWII tale of American soldiers at odds with themselves and the Germans around them is as grizzly and as violent as the war genre gets.  While it might not be an entirely true tale, a revisionist’s view  ...

The Judge - Movie Review

The Judge - Movie ReviewThe verdict is in. The Judge is one of the better films I have seen this year. The unstoppable force meets the immovable object, in a Downey-fied, Duvall-laden holds-no-punches emotional slobber knocker. Downey, continuing his journey up the “mountain,” of stardom has  ...

The Party (1968) - Blu-ray Review

The Party (1968) - Blu-ray ReviewThe genius of Peter Sellers is that he can, in fact, carry an entire picture by saying very little. Just watching him “become” is the joy.

Dracula Untold - Movie Review

Dracula Untold - Movie ReviewAnd now the 15th century “Dark Knight” gets his very own reboot.   Unfortunately, Dracula Untold should have remained exactly that.  This fangless reimagining of Vlad the Impaler’s origins is a certifiable bore, offering only fun sized Snickers for those Halloween  ...
