Sharknado - Blu-ray Review

Sharknado - Blu-ray Review

Sharknado is a magnificent joke; a really, really splendid joke of a bad movie. Wait, your brain says, if it’s a joke then how is it worthy of all those stars?  How can it be considered perfect?  Because, dear reader, sometimes all it takes to save the day ...

Hells Angels on Wheels (1967) - Blu-ray review

Hells Angels on Wheels - Blu-ray review As far as exploitation cinema goes, Hells Angels on Wheels is actually a solid offering of two-wheeled mayhem in the years before Easy Rider.  It was originally filmed when people and headline news were obsessed with motorcycles, motorcycle gangs, and the ...

The Lords of Salem - Blu-ray Review

The Lords of Salem - blu-ray review The old school blade of horror and suspense gets sharpened in heavy metal rocker-turned-filmmaker Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem.  While it was much maligned by critics upon its initial release, the film – drawing inspiration from Rosemary’s Baby, Suspiria ...

The Jungle Book (1967) - Blu-ray Review [Region B & C]

The Jungle Book - Blu-ray Review Although never considered in the league of Snow White or Pinocchio, Disney’s adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is one of the world’s favourite. It also marks a sad end of an era in the Disney Classics history, being the last animated film to be overseen ...

Pain & Gain - Blu-ray Review

Pain & Gain - Movie Review Anyone who knows me or reads my reviews or has a brief conversation with me knows I cannot stand Michael “Mr. Awesome” Bay films.  His adolescent shenanigans just do little for me … except make me feel as if I suffer from PTSD.  This time out, Bay toys with ...

Silence of the Lambs - Blu-ray Review [Limited Edition Steelbook - UK]

The Silence of the Lambs - Blu-ray Review A small little underdog of a movie: it’s hard to believe but that’s exactly what Silence of the Lambs was. It was a film nobody wanted to make. Gene Hackman, who had paid for half the rights, bowed out, claiming it was too violent; Michelle Pfeiffer rejected the soon ...

The Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season - Blu-ray Review

The Walking Dead: The COmplete Third Season

Q: The Winged Serpent (1982) - Blu-ray Review

Q: The Winged Serpent - Blu-ray Review I’m being generous with a 3 star review for Larry Cohen’s flawed movie, I know.  Kick dust at me.  Go ahead.  The gimme-my-paycheck acting of David Carradine is terrible; the court scenes are grueling at best; the twitching of Michael Moriarty, the dopiness ...

Pawn Shop Chronicles - Blu-ray Review

Pawn Shop Chronicles - Blu-ray Review

Oh, but no.  Just no. Having no idea what to expect from a movie entitled Pawn Shop Chronicles but sporting an interesting cast, I thought I would give it a fair shake.  Unfortunately, that’s where my fairness ends.  This redneck attempt at Pulp Fiction is neither ...

Dark Angel (I Come In Peace) (1990) - Blu-ray Review

Dark Angel - Blu-ray Review Once upon a very brief time, Dolph Lundgren was being groomed to be the next badass superstar.  And then Hollywood woke up, realizing he was already a parody.  Made at the very peak of his brief rise to superstar fame here in America, Dark Angel – now considered ...

Killing Season - Blu-ray Review

Killing Season - Blu-ray Review A slimmed-down (or well-concealed) John Travolta plays a cold-blooded Serbian war criminal (wait, what?) and Robert De Niro forgets his southern accent over Jaeger shots in director Mark Steven Johnson’s Killing Season.  This combination of talent should have worked ...

Death Hunt (1981) - Blu-ray Review

Death Hunt (1981) - Blu-ray Review Loosely based on the real life Canadian manhunt for `Mad Trapper' Albert Johnson, director Peter Hunt (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) proves once again to be stellar behind the camera as Death Hunt belongs in its own genre.  Is it completely action-filled? ....

Doctor Who: Spearhead from Space (1970) - Blu-ray Review

Doctor Who Spearhead from Space One of the few filmic anomalies in the classic era of the long-running Doctor Who series has finally received the upgrade it so richly deserves.  Jon Pertwee's first outing as the Doctor is the first time the adventures of the Time Lord were shown in color.  That in itself ...

Hatchet 3: Unrated Director’s Cut - Blu-ray Review

Hatchet III - Blu-ray Review The no CGI mandate continues as Adam Green’s uber-bloody Hatchet series comes up with its third and freshest entry.  Directed by BJ McDonnell, Hatchet 3 begins precisely where the second one ended – with actress Danielle Harris butchering the main antagonist ...
