Fasten those seatbelts. Fury Road isn’t taking any prisoners.

Empire of the Ants/Jaws of Satan - blu-ray ReviewMutant mayhem strikes doubly hard in Scream Factory’s twofer release of 1977’s Empire of the Ants and Jaws of Satan, originally released in 1981.

Food of the Gods/Frogs (Double Feature) - Blu-ray Review

Frogs/Food of the Gods (Double Feature) - Blu-ray ReviewThe B-movie. The Creature Feature. The Creepy Crawlies Double Feature. Whatever your name for the horror genre’s offshoot is, Scream Factory – with their twofer release of Food of the Gods and Frogs – is who you’ll want to thank if you are into (like me) these low-grade   ...

Call the Midwife: Season Four (2015) - Blu-ray Review

Call the Midwife: Season 4 - Blu-ray ReviewWhat’s a historical dramatic series to do when its lead actor hungers to star in some serious science fiction movies while its ratings grow?

Aloha - Movie Review

Aloha - Movie ReviewFittingly, the Hawaiian word “Aloha” – which is the title for writer/director Cameron Crowe’s latest film – has become synonymous with the English greeting for both “hello” and “good bye.” As in “hello" to the end of Cameron Crowe’s do-no-wrong run of meaningful   ...

San Andreas - Movie Review

San Andreas - Movie ReviewOkay, okay, okay. We all can agree that the star-powered disaster movie is in serious need of a vitamin shot. Hell, it’s in need of a shot of Jack Daniels (or at least the audience is) if it’s to even be taken somewhat seriously anymore. Even classics in the genre – like The ...

Gone Doggy Gone - Movie Review

Gone Doggy Gone - Movie ReviewAll jokes about titles aside, Gone Doggy Gone is not a parody. It IS; however, very funny as it examines the uninspiring relationship of one couple so completely obsessed with their Teacup Yorkie that they are willing to pay $30,000 for its safe return when it is dognapped. Imagine  ...

Duck, You Sucker! (1971) - Blu-ray Review

Duck, You Sucker - Blu-ray ReviewWhen we talk about the films of Sergio Leone, I wonder how many people realize we are only talking, specifically, about six movies. Six. No more and no less. And they are all inarguable considered film classics…except for one. Filmed in 1971, Duck, You Sucker! (aka  ...

Poltergeist (2015) - Movie Review

Poltergeist - Movie ReviewWe all knew this wasn’t going to be good. The 2015 remake of the 1982 horror classic is for the most part, a waste of time. Unnecessary comes to mind. Back in the 1980s, Steven Spielberg was hot property and penned the original, and left the directing task up to Tobe  ...

Focus - Blu-ray Review

Focus - Movie ReviewFew film genres evoke the silly, impulsive giddiness we experience from a good con or heist flick. There’s just something supremely fascinating about watching some hapless rube get fleeced of all his worldly possessions at the hands of a well-oiled con team. That   ...

The Secret Invasion (1964) - Blu-ray Review

The Secret Invasion - Blu-ray ReviewLong before the Fast & Furious gang was granted freedom from their past criminal activity for assisting the feds, famed film producer/director Roger Corman introduced audiences to a group of war criminals tasked to defeat a Nazi invasion in Yugoslavia for their own   ...
