Exorcist II: The Heretic – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Scream Factory is releasing the mother of all horror films, a timeless classic that made an everlasting impression upon release that shocked audiences around the globe; The Exorcist…II…The Heretic. Yes, that notorious film known as one of the worst sequels (And films) of all time that had audiences literally chasing producers out of a theater they were so appalled, is getting a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray. NOW, for me, this is the PERFECT film to do a big Collector’s Edition for, because maaaan, there have got to be some incredible stories from this production as well as answers to questions regarding the baffling decisions made. With the blunt and honest interviews they get for these, it makes the bonus features worth the purchase alone. So, join together with me, and get your pre-order in to have it ready and waiting for you when it arrives September 25th!

Scream For Help (Blu-ray Review)

Scream Factory is bringing to Blu-ray for the first time, the 1984 film Scream For Help. The film pairs the director of Death Wish, Michael Winner, with the writing of 1980s horror’s greatest commodities in Tom Holland. No, not Spider-Man, the OG Tom Holland who gave us Chucky, Fright Night and Psycho II. I’m not too familiar with this one, but listening to them give their reasoning for releasing it and the type of schlock it is…I have to say I’m pretty excited. Sounds like they are trying to recapture some Ninja III: The Domination magic here. It comes with some brand new interviews and a commentary. They were also able to do a brand new 2K transfer for this release from the original film elements. Those that dig this kinda feature should jump in on pre-ordering it below, and be ready to check it out when it arrives on September 25th (AKA, this BUSIEST new release date of 2018).

Stanwyck, Sutherland & More Coming to The Criterion Collection in December 2018

This December, Euzhan Palcy will join the Criterion Collection with A Dry White Season, a courageous chronicle of injustice and resistance in apartheid South Africa that made history as the first Hollywood studio film directed by a black woman. Barbara Stanwyck leads the charge in Samuel Fuller’s unconventional western Forty Guns, a thrilling exemplar of the director’s no-holds-barred approach to genre filmmaking, appearing on Blu-ray for the first time. Julien Duvivier’s long-unavailable Panique, an atmospheric thriller shot through with postwar paranoia, will appear in a new 2K restoration. And there’s more: Ingmar Bergman’s piercing psychological drama Sawdust and Tinsel, an early breakthrough for the legendary Swedish filmmaker, will appear in a stand-alone Blu-ray edition.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Some seem to not appreciate it as much, but we are in the midst of some Star War bliss at the multiplex. From The Last Jedi to Solo: A Star War Story, there were just a mere 5 months between brand new live-action Star Wars films, making 4 new Star Wars films in a 3-year period. People can cry “overkill”, but damnit, I’m a happy camper. I love Star Wars, so I’m not complaining about “too much Star Wars”. This series once had a gap of 16 years between entries and then 10 years. I think we’re okay. Anywho, Solo: A Star Wars Story becomes the second of the franchise to hit the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray format when it arrives in stores on September 25th. There are various “exclusive” editions abound from store to store, so choose which one suits you and enjoy this latest adventure in a galaxy far, far away!

American Psycho: Uncut Version (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

American Psycho 4K ReviewIs it wrong to admit that when I sat down to write my very first screenplay American Psycho was a huge influence?  It’s true.  To this day I’m so mystified by the character of Patrick Bateman.  I find his motives, thoughts and crazy action undeniably intriguing.   The one universal truth remains that you’ll never think of Huey Lewis’ song “Hip To Be Square” any other way after watching this zany, psychological horror film.  The movie like its choice in sound cuts turned out to be quite the controversial satire.  Many people watch this and they dismiss everything they saw and never have any desire to return.  However, there are enough folks like me who find the good in black comedies like these and that’s why whether its uncut version or R-rated one American Psycho is very much a bonafide living, breathing cult classic thriller.  Let’s talk more about this September 25th 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release by Lionsgate down below.

Legends Of Tomorrow: The Complete Third Season (Blu-ray Review)

Legends of Tomorrow has grown from a the lowest wrung of the Arrowverse all the way to arguable the best show of the bunch. In its third season, the show has proven that year two was no fluke and they are able to sustain and continue on with that level of quality. Hell, the show even includes a HUGE moment to cap off that feels like big statement, making us wonder how the movies can’t have the guts to go bonkers like this show is willing to go with and in big moment no doubt. Once again, Warner Bros is bringing it to Blu-ray, in a nice 3-disc set. It has some of the same bonus material found on all four other (Maybe five if Gotham has that Comic Con panel thing too) releases and just a hair of its own. You’ll want to pre-order from the Amazon link so you can collect, catch up or relive the third year adventure when it comes out on September 25th.

Punisher: War Zone (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Netflix recently scored itself another hit Marvel television series with a brand new adaptation of the popular vigilante hero The Punisher. It marked the first “pure Marvel” take on the character. Prior to that, he’d been in the cinematic landscape with efforts from Roger Corman’s New World Pictures to Lionsgate, played by someone new each time; Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson. Lionsgate is looking back upon its output and upgrading them both to 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray, boasting new and improved picture to go with a fresh new Dolby Atmos track to blast up and down your viewing area. Both are getting released on September 25th and have a DYNAMITE price to lock in for a pre-order currently ($14 & $16 bucks, are you kidding me?). This review tackles my personal favorite Punisher outing of all time, turning 10 years old this year. The low-key, super pulpy War Zone. Continue reading ‘Punisher: War Zone (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)’

Sideshow Exclusive Edition Harley Quinn Premium Format (Review)

Sideshow Exclusive Edition Harley Quinn Premium Format (Review)If you knew me only by the ornaments decorating my work office, then you know it’s no surprise how much I loved Harley Quinn in 2016’s Suicide Squad.  Her character was the best part of it in my opinion, but I digress.  Also, it’s not any secret how much I adore actress Margot Robbie as said character.  In the past year I have been very fortunate to review Harley Quinn DC Collectibles merchandise such as the DC Comics Designer Series: Harley Quinn by Amanda Conner Action Figure Set here, Amazon Exclusive Harley Quinn Statue – Suicide Squad Blu-ray Combo Pack here and the DC Collectibles Suicide Squad Harley Quinn and Joker statue over here.  I mention these three reviews only because compared to the next collectible we are gathered here to talk about today they are all small fries.  I mean that in both stature and price.  That’s right ladies and gentlemen I’m stepping up to the “Big Leagues” with the following Sideshow Exclusive Edition Harley Quinn Premium Format collectible.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? (Blu-ray Review)

For over thirty years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer was beamed daily into homes across America. In his beloved television program, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Fred and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues, in a simple, direct fashion. There hadn’t been anything like Mr. Rogers on television before and there hasn’t been since. And now, you’ll be able to own the acclaimed Focus Features film, a box office success story this summer, on Blu-ray September 4th (So, now, that means). You can order yourself a copy of the movie using the Amazon link following the review. You know, its the kind of friendly, neighborly thing that Mr. Rogers would want you to do. 🙂 Continue reading ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor? (Blu-ray Review)’

‘The Predator’ IS Absurd, Goofy & Fun 80’s Cheese (Movie Review)

The Predator Movie ReviewThe Predator is a sequel that feels like it was a long time coming.  Like Alien it’s such a lucrative franchise and almost a guaranteed success for Fox, but regardless all we really have is four of them now to enjoy.  And yes, this is the fourth installment in the film franchise, which succeeds Predator (1987), Predator 2 (1990) and Predators (2010).  Notice I did not say anything about the two Alien vs. Predator films, and rightfully so.  They were for the most part awful.  The first one was rated PG-13 and the second was so bad that I’d like to forget much like they do with the bad entries in the X-Men series.  Time travel solves everything!  Speaking of time travel how do these various Predators (at least from the two first entries) get here?  Hold that thought as I utilize it to segue into my next talking point.

Ocean’s 8 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

As the summer box office comes to a close, the Sandra Bullock-led heist film Ocean’s 8 will finish as one of the top ten highest grossing. If you’re not counting Avengers: Infinity War because it opened in April, then it will very cutely land as the #8 film in the top 10. And, crazy enough, without bumping up dollars for inflation, its the second highest grossing of all the Ocean’s movies right after the first one. Warner Bros is bringing it home in style by launching it on the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray format. It’ll come with the standard Blu-ray edition as well as some bonus features and a nice Dolby Atmos surround track. Ocean’s 8 is available now. Be sure grab yourself a copy (Legally, unlike how the team in this film gets things) by ordering using the Amazon link following the review. Continue reading ‘Ocean’s 8 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)’

TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES Goes To Blu-ray October 30th!

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” finds our egocentric, wildly satirical superheroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers. Get ready to LOL when “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital.

Universal Classic Monsters: Complete 30-Film Collection (Blu-ray Review)

Timeless is probably underselling the legacy and importance of the classic Universal Monsters. Many of them with literary origins, but its their cinematic iterations that have and continue to live forever. Their original forms as played by Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Claude Raines and Lon Chaney, Jr. still shower the aisles of our favorite pop up Halloween store and special section of our department stores every fall. Whether you’re a senior or a curious child, these films has something for everyone. At one time the latest groundbreaking films at the cinema, they’ve since been analyzed and psycho-analyzed up and down and stand tall as the golden standard and cinematic works of art. True masterpieces not only making careers and setting standards, but bringing joy, tradition and inspiration to many generations and lifetimes of fans and creators. When it comes to home video, they are deserving of every high order of treatment. And now, with great excitement, every film in the 30-film run of the “canon” has now come to Blu-ray. From Tod Browning’s monumental Dracula, to the schlocky trilogy capper of The Creature Walks Among Us, its all accounted for. Order yourself a copy to have 1-film per day this October and join me as we run back through each monster’s legacy.
