The Comedian - DVD Review

The Comedian - DVD ReviewJackie Burke (Robert De Niro) has fallen on hard times lately. He used to star in a hit sitcom, at the height of his comedy career. But now he barely gets by, relying on occasional nostalgic comedy shows and loans from his exasperated brother (Danny DeVito). During one ...

John Wick: Chapter 2 - Blu-ray Review

John Wick: Chapter 2 - Movie ReviewEvery single time Keanu Reeves is written off or dismissed, he comes bouncing back with a powerfully charged character.  Hell, he even got booed for his performance in Knock Knock.  I think I was one of the eight critics who gave him credit for knowing the  ...

Hack-O-Lantern: 30th Anniversary Limited Edition (1988) - Blu-ray Review

Hack-o-Lantern: 30th Anniversary - Blu-ray ReviewI don’t dream in cheesy music videos, but Tommy Drindle does.  And his twisted music-fronted nightmare features a bikini-clad model shooting green lasers out of her eyes at the band members who lip sync poorly to the lyrics in the song.  The model eventually hits a few ...

The LEGO Batman Movie (2016) - Blu-ray Review

The LEGO Batman Movie - Blu-ray ReviewLeave it to LEGO to get Batman right. Forget DC’s cinematic universe of disappointments, man, because at this point in the game all they have is Wonder Woman.  Will Arnett’s vocal characterization of The Dark Knight is exactly what the stalled franchise needs after the two ...

Island of Terror (1966) - Blu-ray Review

Island of Terror (1966) - Blu-ray ReviewEven when Peter Cushing loses his cool, he doesn’t lose his cool.  You must remember that.  The world could be collapsing around him (as it often does in his movies) and the actor would still respond with his familiar blue-eyed logic and a pair of protective gloves.  The ...

Get Out - Blu-ray Review

get out posterNoted comic and filmmaker Jordan Peele, of Key and Peele fame, marks his directorial debut with Get Out, a brilliantly quirky little film that bills itself as a speculative thriller.

Nurse Sherri (1978) - Blu-ray Review

Nurse Sherri (1978) - Blu-ray ReviewWherever it is in the outer realm of this eternal existence that producer/director/writer Al Adamson now hangs his hat, here’s hoping it has one hell of a view of the heavens.  His bankable B-movies – however cheap and trashy they come across – are endlessly entertaining ...

Fist Fight (2016) - Blu-ray Review

Fist Fight - Blu-ray ReviewFist Fight is the laziest and sloppiest “comedy” to come out of Hollywood in recent memory.  Mean-spirited and brutal, the film simply kills any and every chance it has at successfully being funny thanks to the over-the-top violence it embraces as two unhinged teachers ...

Mutant (1984) (Limited Edition of 2000) - Blu-ray Review

Mutant (1984) - Blu-ray reviewWhen I was a kid, it was this stupid movie that gave me a prolonged buzz.  In one quick scene a small child gets destroyed by a bunch of zombies in a bathroom.  It’s not grotesque; it’s implied as a horde of zombies gather round him to feast.  In another, a doctor verbally ...

Inquisition (1976) - Blu-ray Review

Inquisition (1978) - Blu-ray ReviewMasked robed figures populate the landscape of 16th century France in actor/writer/director Paul Naschy’s Inquisition.  Fires rage, too.  Decapitated heads rot on wooden posts.  Red X’s appear on the doors of stone houses of the condemned.  And the women – always ...

La La Land - Blu-ray Review

La La Land - Movie ReviewThere are few mainstream movies that leave me feeling inspired anymore. I can appreciate a good movie, for sure, but those magical films that leave me electrically charged or near tears are few and far between. La La Land is one of those rare films that somehow cuts   ...

The Girl with All the Gifts - Blu-ray Review

The Girl With All the Gifts - Movie ReviewRestraining teenagers in the classroom?  I always knew education would come to this; teenagers already feel adults would like nothing better than to see them in chains.  Leave it to the British then to combine high IQs with the zombie plague and create one of the best ...

Rat Fink (1965) - Blu-ray Review

Rat Fink (1965) - Blu-ray ReviewRat Fink lives in the shadows.  It is a film about risk.  And it lives in another time and another place, where classic cars travel high speeds and loners ride the rails as Ricky Nelson-like pop songs live and breathe as more than mere background music.  It is a dangerous place ...
