Sundance 2017 – Four Feature Film Reviews

Gotta say that in the Midnight section and late night movies line-up, Sundance has been surprisingly disappointing to me so far.  (Sole exception being the five-star Northern Ireland revenge flick Bad Day For The Cut!)  A handful of flicks dabbling in gross and disturbing plus a disappointing doc have brought the magnificent movie vibe to […]

Building off the end of Psycho II, Norman Bates returns to life as “normal” for another entry into the franchise.  This time he would direct the terror in a film that is very enjoyable, but a noticeable step down in terms of quality.  As long as Anthony Perkins was still around and still interested, why […]

Psycho II – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

In 1983, the unthinkable happened.  A sequel to Psycho?  Blasphemy!  How dare they spit on Hitchcock’s grave!  That kind of attitude led critics and moviegoers to enter the theater with fists up ready to find any reason to tear the film down.  Reviews and feelings from the time this film was released definitely reflect such […]

Hitchcock (Blu-ray Review)

The idea of a movie revolving around the making of Psycho is certainly an intriguing one, made better by the fantastic cast that was involved, with a wonderful looking Anthony Hopkins in the guise of the Master of Suspense.  That is not exactly what I got, but what I liked about this movie, is how […]
