What We Left Behind – Looking Back At Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (Blu-ray Review)

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, caught in between the mega popular Star Trek: The Next Generation and the more traditionally plotted Star Trek: Voyager, was typically overlooked during its time on the air or unappreciated. However, it was a show that was a gamechanger for the television landscape and today’s highly normal serialized storytelling. With no fully remastered and restored Blu-ray sets like The Next Generation likely ever coming fruition, we are instead treated to What We Left Behind; a documentary chronicling the series and its legacy with all the important people brought back to tell the story (Well, except Avery Brooks). Shout! Factory will be releasing this exciting event on Blu-ray on August 6th. This briefly had an event night in theaters, so if you missed out on it, this new Blu-ray is your chance. Plus it is truly loaded with more material beyond the documentary, so you’ll really want to check it out.

Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (Blu-ray Review)

Last month it was Ivan Ooze, now Shout! Factory is moving onward with the Power Rangers movies with TURBO. Personally, I can’t say I’m familiar with this one as the whole thing had passed me by and I was probably “too cool” for it when Turbo released in 1997. I recently spoke with Steve Cardenas about the films and VERY positive about the first Power Ranger movie and pretty mum about Turbo here. So we shall see. Anyway, this is the first time for the film to be on the Blu-ray format (Was not included in the big set from last year) and it looks to also contain some nice supplemental fun here as well. You’ll be able to add it to your collection of Zords, Discs and more when it arrives on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory on July 30th.

The Reptile (Blu-ray Review)

Releasing alongside Lust For A Vampire this month, Scream Factory also will be dipping into Hammer Horror’s The Reptile. It makes its American debut and brings with it a few new bonus features while keeping true to what has been on the Blu-rays so far with the archival bonus features getting ported over. That seems to be par for the course with the Hammer Horror films from Scream Factory. I’ve never seen The Reptile, but with it including a Doctor Who actor in Jacqueline Pearce in the cast (Sure, “just” The Two Doctors serial but she’s done Big Finish stuff as well), I’m all too eager to check this one out now. You’ll be able to check it out too when it arrives on July 30th. To land yourself a copy of The Reptile, you can pre-order the Blu-ray by going to Shout! Factory’s website, or you can simply scroll down to the Amazon link that follows the whole review and click on that (And help our little site a hair in the process).

Lust For A Vampire (Blu-ray Review)

Scream Factory’s devotion to Hammer Horror continues in 2019 (Wait until you see the Hammer stuff coming in September) with a title unreleased on Blu-ray so far (And has a bit of demand) with Lust For A Vampire. The second film in the noted Karnstein trilogy, it will be making its debut here with some fresh new bonus materials and a 4K scan from the original negative. While reviled by many (Even those who worked on the film), Lust For A Vampire has a pretty solid cult following and really fits the bill to be a Scream Factory release (In the UK, it is being released a few weeks after this one by Studio Canal). Lust For A Vampire releases on July 30th (Same day as The Reptile) and is available for pre-order by going to the Shout! Factory website or by clicking on the Amazon link that follows the review.

The Case of the Disappearing Drive-In

When I think of a drive-in movie theater, I used to often associate the image with the 1950’s and 60’s. Perhaps I’d mentally throw in a scene of a young couple watching The Blob while the young varsity jacket-wearing student would try and steal a kiss from his date. Such establishments serve as significant nostalgia for many in the U.S. The truth is, many of these have long since closed, going the way of the dodo. Heck, you’d have a better chance of finding a waitress on roller skates today than you would a drive-in movie theater.

Shazam! (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I remember seeing the first production stills of Shazam! online and thinking how awful/embarrassing our hero’s inflated muscle outfit looked.  Surely this was a joke and they were keeping his real superhero suit under wraps or inserting it digitally later in post.  Wrong!  Then something happened and I was like whoa this actually looks not only legit, but fun and hysterical as well.  That moment I speak of was when the film’s first theatrical trailer dropped.  Not only was the inflated muscle bound costume the real thing, but for the first time since I saw those stills I breathed a somewhat sigh of relief.  This feature looked like a blast on the cover.  Couple that with the initial wave of early reviews that were not only favorable, but claiming this was one of the best DCEU movies yet and you had my attention dripping whet with anticipation.  So here we are!  It’s Shazam! on 4K time!

Critters Attack! (Blu-ray Review)

Hey, the Critters are back! All right! Well, they came back already this year with Shudder’s Critters: The First Binge back in March. But now we are getting a sequel to the original film series with Critters Attack! This one also boasts the return of Dee Wallace to the series for the first time since the original film. Warner Bros will be putting the movie out on Blu-ray on July 23rd, but this is in anticipation of some big SyFy Channel premiere of the film later this year or something or other is what I gather.

I – – Went – – to – – see – – The Art – – of – – Self Defense (Movie Review)

The Art of Self Defense Movie ReviewSo as you know I – – went – – to see – – The Art – – of – – Self Defense.  And it – – was – -great! To give you guys a little insight… I had no idea this film was coming out. My expectations for this film were quite low due to my ignorance of its existence. This has proven to be a pretty good strategy when it comes to viewing films though. Going into a film with an open mind, free of preconceived notions, or hype, allows you to truly take in what you’re watching. What I was watching was some pretty good stuff. Due to not watching any trailers or reading about this film at all I was shocked and surprised at how well-crafted and detailed the film was. Well – – lets see – – what – – it’s all – – about!

Need a Ride? Let’s Go With Stuber! (Movie Review)

Stuber Movie ReviewStuber was… a great time at the cinema! I didn’t think I was going to have as much fun as I did with this one, but I did. Out of the few comedies I’ve reviewed this summer, The Dead Don’t Die (2019) and The Fall of the American Empire (2018), Stuber (2019) has been my favorite for sure! I laughed my cheeks off, both sets, throughout the whole film. At certain points in the film I was literally wiping tears of joy from my face. As you have probably gathered… the comedy is great. The action in the film, even for a comedy, is pretty solid. From beginning to end Stuber never takes its foot off the gas! Alright guys let’s open up the app and select our ride!

Waterworld (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

In 1995, Waterworld was more infamous for its controversies and budget than it was for being a fantastic movie. Critics ripped the picture to shreds, and audiences were divided as well. Some people wondered where the money had gone. Others wondered why the performances weren’t the greatest. It should be said that sometimes time can be kinder to a movie on occasion. Upon revisiting Waterworld, I can confidently say this is one of those times. Check out the in-depth perspective on Waterworld on 4K Blu-ray, which hit stores on 7/9!
