Machete Kills - Blu-ray Review

Machete Kills - Movie Review Robert Rodriguez’s Mex-ploitation saga continues with the batshit crazy antics highlighted in Machete Kills.  While the print critics prematurely hammer nails into the character’s coffin, no amount of bullets can kill Danny Trejo.  He may be older and bit more stiff ...

Riddick [Unrated Director's Cut] - Blu-ray Review

Riddick - Movie Review Perhaps the timing of Riddick, the sequel to Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick is a stroke of genius.  After all, it’s a literal dead season for movies and there is just little of great interest out in theaters right now. Perhaps it is just having ...

The Wicker Man: The Final Cut (1973) - Blu-ray Review

The Wicker Man: The Final Cut (1973) - Blu-ray Review Some still argue to the death that Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man is the Citizen Kane of horror movies.  Watching Lionsgate’s recently released “Final Cut” version of the film (a blu-ray debut for the title), it’s hard to disagree with the legion of fans still in an uproar ...

Big Ass Spider! - Blu-ray Review

Big Ass Spider! - Blu-ray ReviewThe creepy crawlies get deep B-movie fried in director Mike Mendez’s Big Ass Spider! - a flick as non-nuanced as it is devotion to the whole party schlock atmosphere of the drive-in movies of yesteryear.  While it sports a better polish than most tongue-in-cheek ...

Mary Poppins: 50th Anniversary Edition - DVD Review

Mary Poppins - DCD ReviewThe world didn’t know it needed a remake of The Shaggy Dog. But the Disney studio churned one out, anyway, in 2006. It belongs on a long list of their updates including That Darn Cat, The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday. However, there’s one original movie that can ...

The Croods - Blu-ray Review

The Croods - Movie ReviewNo new gound is broken with DreamWorks’ latest release.  Its simple theme isn’t genre-defying either.  But the hilarious hijinks never stop for very long as the first family of cave-dwelling, affectionately called The Croods, takes a family vacation of sorts in this highly ...

Thor: The Dark World - Blu-ray Review

Thor: The Dark World - Movie ReviewAlan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World might feel - with its Anthony Hopkins-narrated beginning concerning a war with elves – a bit like the next installment of The Hobbit but when it comes down to it, Marvel’s second trip through the Norse mythology is indeed magical ...

Attack of the Werewolves - Blu-ray Review

Attack of the Werewolves - Blu-ray ReviewAn American Werewolf in London has never been equalled for this reviewer in the 31 years since its release.
