A Quiet Place (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

A Quiet Place 4K ReviewI have been living in Austin, TX now for over five years and I have yet to attend the infamous SXSW film/music festival.  Is that wrong of me?  I just don’t want to contend with all the mad traffic that event brings to the area, which in my opinion can’t appropriately accommodate an event of this size anyway.  However, I mention this event only because that’s where A Quiet Place first premiered this past March.  A month later it opened theatrically wide to rave reviews from critics, moviegoers and even Hollywood actors themselves praising the film for its smart moves and breathtaking scares.  I remember one famous actor even said he saw it three times and was on the radio encouraging all moviegoers to go see it.  Needless to say I was pumped to tackle this one theatrically.  I mean how could all these people be wrong about it, right?  So without further ado let’s talk some A Quiet Place down below.  What say you?

Piranha II: The Spawning (Blu-ray Review)

Many acclaimed directors get their start in the horror genre. And of those many, some of them’s first big gigs were schlock. Enter James Cameron and Roger Corman’s Piranha II: The Spawning. Its fun bit of film history trivia to see a torch passed in a series like this from Joe Dante to James Cameron. Scream Factory had tried to release this one earlier this year (January, I believe), but hit some snags delaying it, but I can confirm that it DOES exist as I’m gonna review it haha. Not a Collector’s Edition but the film does carry some extras (No, James Cameron and Lance Henriksen are not involved with any of them). This is sure to become a collector’s item, though. So, pre-order yourself a copy to have on time for its release on July 31st! Continue reading ‘Piranha II: The Spawning (Blu-ray Review)’

You Were Never Really Here (Blu-ray Review)

Crafting some buzz and nabbing up some awards (Best Screenplay, Best Actor) at the Cannes Film Festival, You Were Never Really Here comes all the way to Blu-ray from Lionsgate. Lynne Ramsay’s film is fashioned as a “Taxi Driver for a new century!” with a lot of praise coming for the performance of lead actor and Academy Award winner Joaquin Phoenix. Unfortunately, this release is looking pretty hollow in terms of bonus features being included, so you’ll have to take it all on the movie alone. If you’re a big fan of the movie or you’re just gonna go charging in with that Blu-ray fan tradition of blind buying, you can use our Amazon link at the end of the review to pre-order yourself a copy. You Were Never Really Here will make its debut on Blu-ray July 17th. Continue reading ‘You Were Never Really Here (Blu-ray Review)’

Blockers (Blu-ray Review)

Winding down the spring into summer movie season, there was the big hit move, A Quiet Place, which proved to be no joke. But, making the jokes was another solid film, Blockers. While it didn’t do gangbusters, the film proved to be a pretty solid hit financially. Add to that, it was very much well liked by the critics (Which seemed to apparently come as a surprise to most). It was the second solid comedy in 2018 with good box office take and critical response (The other being Game Night). Blockers also appeared to be the first attempt at a comedy with John Cena as a leading man, having shown some chops in Trainwreck and Sisters. You’ll be able to check it out, or own the film if you liked it, on Blu-ray on July 3rd! Pre-order your copy from Amazon using the link below! Continue reading ‘Blockers (Blu-ray Review)’

Black Lightning: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray Review)

The DC television universe has been pretty much the opposite of its film universe in almost every way. People seemingly are wanting more, more, more. And this year, they’ve added a new member to the family of shows; Black Lightning. Unlike the other new characters that they were quick to immerse into a crossover or at least a guest spot on another show’s episode, they kept Jefferson Pierce’s first season to his own little world and played in a self contained sandbox. Now, its coming to Blu-ray as have his cohorts. Warner Bros is sticking with the script here, and giving the show the usual bells and whistles that the other shows have been given (Maybe a little more here as there as some “intro” kinda things they have a their disposal). You’ll be able to grab it when it hits shelves June 26th. Continue reading ‘Black Lightning: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray Review)’

Bergman, Tarkovsky, Assayas & More Coming to The Criterion Collection in September 2018

Coming this September, Olivier Assayas’s long-unavailable coming-of-age masterpiece Cold Water, recently released theatrically for the first time in the U.S., will join the Criterion Collection in a new 4K restoration supervised by the director. Andrei Tarkovsky’s monumental epic Andrei Rublev will make its Blu-ray debut in an edition that includes both the director’s preferred 185-minute cut and the extended cut that was suppressed by Soviet censors. A Raisin in the Sun, the classic film version of Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking play about a Chicago family’s struggle against racism and class barriers, starring Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee, will appear in a new 4K restoration. American inequality gets lampooned from the top down in My Man Godfrey, the uproarious Depression-era screwball comedy starring William Powell and Carole Lombard, now on Blu-ray. And that’s not all: Ingmar Bergman plumbs the emotional depths of a couple’s life together and apart in Scenes from a Marriage, on Blu-ray for the first time.
