Captain America: The Winter SoldierCaptain America: The Winter Soldier is a serious slice of paranoid espionage.

Ghostbusters / Ghostbusters 2 [Region Free] - Blu-ray Review

Ghostbusters/Ghostbusters 2 - Blu-ray Review1984 was quite the year for movies.

Willow Creek (2014) - Blu-ray Review

Willow Creek - Blu-ray ReviewBonafide folklore and then some; that's the result of Bobcat Goldthwait's first forray into horror.  Willow Creek, writer/director Goldthwait’s latest film, sucker punched me right in gut. I guess I am still affected by these found footage flicks. What he has done here ...

Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973) - Blu-ray Review

Godzilla vs Megalon (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewGrowing up, I never realized that the Toho-helmed Godzilla flicks of the 1970s really had a lot in common with the Roger Moore era of James Bond.  Godzilla vs. Megalon, released last month on blu-ray (but already hard to come by in brick and mortar stores), is proof of ...

Godzilla 2000: Millennial (1999) - Blu-ray Review

Godzilla 2000: Millenial (1999) - Blu-ray ReviewWhile not the massively misaligned train wreck that was TriStar’s Godzilla (circa 1998), Godzilla 2000: Millennium is admittedly a letdown. It is successful in that it returns the series to Japan and gets it back on track but, with huge gaps in logic and a pacing that simply ...

Pumpkinhead: Collector's Edition (1988) - Blu-ray Review

Pumpkinhead - Blu-ray ReviewWhat a sad, sad story of one man’s tragic revenge.  Another viewing of Stan Winston’s Pumpkinhead, newly remastered and released from Scream Factory, confirms this for me.  This cult classic and its following seems to get more reputable every single year that passes  ...

For No Good Reason (2014) - Blu-ray Review

For No Good Reason - Blu-ray ReviewFilmmaker Charlie Paul’s documentary For No Good Reason isn’t as sharply focused as it could have been.  Steadman, who famously illustrated Hunter S. Thompson’s most famous works, is a fascinating artist and, as he continues to churn out some seriously  ...

The Longest Day (1962) - Limited Edition Steelbook UK - Blu-ray Review

The Longest Day (1962) - Blu-ray ReviewThat one sentence often accompanies many reviews, lists, and assessments about Darryl F. Zanuck’s 1962 epic, honouring of D-Day. Before it had even rolled a frame of film, this film was in trouble. 20th Century Fox was in financial ruin, thanks to Elizabeth Taylor’s star   ...

Rear Window (1954) - Blu-ray ReviewAlfred Hitchcock has many classics under his none-too-skinny belt, but arguably none are as universally beloved as the 1954 thriller Rear Window.

20 Million Miles to Earth - Blu-ray ReviewRay Harryhausen and his stop-motion work is legendary.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Blu-ray Review

The Amazing Spider-man 2 - Movie ReviewAfter the epidemic of remakes, reboots (or as the cynic might say, ‘we’ve milked this cow in its current incarnation as much as we can, so here’s a new version!), there is something truly ‘amazing’ in that these things continue to make astounding money.
