Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell (Blu-ray Review)

Twenty eight years following the original cult classic horror/action/comedy/monster movie hybrid, here we arrive at the sixth Tremors film. As long as Michael Gross wants to come back, I’ll gladly keep up with the series. Its one that’s never really felt completely overdone, having its most output from 2001-2004 where we got two direct-to-DVD films and a short lived televisions show (That starred Dean Norris). Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell will be following the previous film Bloodlines a little more closely, returning Jamie Kennedy’s Travis Welker (The son of Burt Gummer) to our hero’s side. These films truly know what they are and mostly how to deliver. You’ll get to see if this sixth entry continues the trend when it releases on Blu-ray May 1st.  Continue reading ‘Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell (Blu-ray Review)’

Source Code (4K UHD Blu-ray)

Duncan Jones launched onto the directorial scene with the heavily praised science fiction film, Moon. One that you really could call a modern cult classic. Moon was exciting a debut as one could have, landing on everyone’s radar, excited to see where Jones would end up next. Currently, Jones has contributed the Warcraft movie that has its fans but was a rather notable failure in the US and the Netflix film Mute that didn’t receive much positive response. Coming off Moon, he did Source Code, a thriller featuring the Groundhog’s Day-like storytelling device about having a short window over and over again to stop a bomb on a train. It received rave reviews and was a solid box office hit. So Jones is on the bad side of batting 50/50 (Even John Boorman had Zardoz and Exorcist II back to back). On the good side, Source Code is coming to 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray on May 8th! Continue reading ‘Source Code (4K UHD Blu-ray)’

‘The Defiant Ones’ [Eureka Classics] on Blu-ray & DVD June 11, 2018!

Nominated for nine Academy Awards including Best Picture, Stanley Kramer’s The Defiant Ones broke new ground by delivering its message of racial tolerance through a fast-moving blend of action and suspense. It remains a raw, powerful film that is as exciting as it is moving, real and literate. John “Joker” Jackson (Tony Curtis; The Vikings, Some Like It Hot) and Noah Cullen (Sidney Poitier; Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, In the Heat of the Night) are two convicts on the run. Escaping from a Southern work gang, the two men are bound together by an unbreakable iron chain and separated by an unbridled hatred towards each other. Relentlessly pursued by a bloodthirsty posse, they must put aside their differences if they are going to survive  Continue reading ‘‘The Defiant Ones’ [Eureka Classics] on Blu-ray & DVD June 11, 2018!’

Z-O-M-B-I-E-S (DVD Review)

The Disney Channel most recently has been riding high off of the smashing success of its The Descendants movies. Those felt of a certain “passing of the torch” from the High School Musical films that came in the decade prior. Now, while I’m sure a third Descendants film is in the works and around the corner, we have something in a similar vein but different to take in; ZOMBIES! This one features a society allowing the undead to attend school after years of coexistence. I’m sensing some clever social commentary for a good, fun singing and dancing educational lesson, Disney. You’ll be able to own a physical copy of the latest Disney Channel event when it comes to the 22 year old DVD format only at the end of the month, April 24th.

The House That Dripped Blood (Blu-ray Review)

When it comes to the notable classic horror studios or collaborations of the 1960s and early 1970s, we immediately lean toward Hammer Films, American International Pictures, the Roger Corman Edgar Allan Poe films, the works of Mario Bava and more. And included in that “more” is definitely Amicus Productions. Not that people aren’t immediately thinking of them too, but in terms of Blu-ray, it seems we are finally getting around to giving them some love. Last year (Which wound up coming out this past January), Severin Films put together an exciting box set of their films. Using many of the same actors as AIP and Hammer, these films fit right with them, albeit more modern than they are period. Scream Factory has brought together another of their famous anthologies (Previously they did the Tales From the Crypt/Vault of Horror double feature), The House That Dripped Blood onto Blu-ray May 8th.

The Commuter (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Jaume Collet-Serra may not be a marquee director or a household name, but he’s been doing some overall solid work this decade. Probably one of the tops when it comes to the mid-budget adult thriller, he’s coming hot off his Blake Lively horror film The Shallows and reteaming with Liam Neeson. The Commuter marks their fourth collaboration following Non-Stop, Run All Night and Unknown. During early rounds of press Neeson says his action hero chapter of his career would be coming to an end with this film, but he may have back tracked that a little. This film opened during Jumanji’s reign and managed to cross over one hundred million dollars worldwide by the end of its run. You’ll find it available for physical at home consumption on April 17.  Continue reading ‘The Commuter (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)’

Vice Principals – The Complete Series (DVD Review)

HBO’s Vice Principals was another in the lines of limited run series from HBO, like The Night Of or True Detective. Planned as a focused 18 episode story (Or a 9 hour movie as the creators would put it), the premium cable network ran the show in two halves and got two years out of it. A team-up of Danny McBride and Walton Goggins headlined what felt like a perfect matchup, and indeed it played out as one. While the first season of Vice Principals was given a Blu-ray release from HBO, they’ve taken a hard left with it and dramatically changed course. At this time, there is no release of season two by itself at all. As a matter of fact, no Blu-ray of it, even. They will be release a Complete Series set on DVD only. A very odd choice from a studio that tends to be on the up and up with performance quality and has even gotten into 4K Ultra-HD. Its very strange and probably pretty confusing or frustrating for many collectors, but this is the hand we’ve been dealt. Luckily, if you want to take two steps back in terms of quality, its rather inexpensive and also comes with a Digital HD version of the entire series when it streets April 10th.

Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Suicide Squad Hell to Pay 4K Well hey now!  Are you all prepare to root for the bad guys once again?  That’s right!  The Suicide Squad gang is back!  Not so fast though.  This isn’t the DCEU version of the Suicide Squad.  Oh no!  It’s the DCAU (DC Animated Universe) Suicide Squad.  For the uninitiated the DCAU have both a pretty impressive resume and following.  You can find reviews of past titles such as Batman and Harley here and Batman: Gotham by Gaslight here, but I digress.  The team is back in action here when Amanda Waller once again sends her band of misfit DC Super-Villains on secret mission in Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay.  I’m hearing great things about this title so I’m stoked to jump in head first below.  So without further ado let me get this message in from our sponsor here.  The feature-length animated film, Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, arrives from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack April 10th.  Now with that being said let’s check out what this one’s all about under its slipcover and cellophane.
