Check in to the fifth season of the deliciously diabolical series from creators Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk, starring a killer cast that includes Lady Gaga – in her Golden Globe-winning role as The Countess – along with Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Matt Bomer, Denis O’Hare and Sarah Paulson.  A string of grisly murders is […]

‘London Has Fallen’ Down A Deep Hole (Movie Review)

I did not see this coming, but London Has Fallen proves to be the movie that shows what nuance Michael Bay can bring to his films by comparison. This generic and borderline offensive sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen is downright schlocky in the way it proposes to back up its $100 million budget with […]

American Horror Story: Freak Show (Blu-ray Review)

I’ve seen a few episodes of the first season and I gotta admit I really wasn’t impressed.  The whole over-the-top concept seemed really silly to me. There were also a few story-lines in the first season that seemed rather forced and generic. But I feel like this go-round they’re really trying to develop and endear you […]

Supernova (Blu-ray Review)

When Scream Factory announced they were releasing Supernova many moons ago, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the distributor’s most celebrated announcement of all time.  The film came out back in 2000, wasn’t liked at all and bombed at the box office pretty hard.  Director Walter Hill allowed it to have some sort of historical significance […]

‘White Bird in a Blizzard’ on Blu-ray & DVD January 20th!

Kat Connors’ perfect homemaker mother, Eve, a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears – just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother’s absence and certainly doesn’t blame her doormat of a father, Brock, for the loss. In […]

Scream Factory Presents SUPERNOVA January 13, 2015!

Supernova turns 15 years old next year.  After blowing out that 15th candle on its cake, it’ll be able to, like most of us probably, give it another look.  This film was a pretty massive failure at the box office, too.  Also of note, its the first film to use the “Thomas Lee” pseudonym instead […]

An Ashley Judd Sighting Amplifies ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ on Blu-ray!

Stop the press!  I don’t care if it’s only a brief moment…word has it that Ashley Judd makes an appearance in Olympus Has Fallen and that’s good enough for me!  It warms my heart that she’s actually in a movie that’s critically reviewed as being okay because God I swear she has made more bad […]

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ And A 90s Action Movie Rises (Movie Review)

It is funny how some movies strike me differently than others, despite their similarities.  Olympus Has Fallen has all the jingoism, xenophobia, and silliness to match awful films like Red Dawn or Red Tails.  It is also cheap and ugly enough at times to match an awful film like A Good Day To Die Hard.  […]

Green Lantern (Blu-ray Review)

And now it’s time to review a Blu-ray title that I know everyone out there is probably jealous and envious of me for.   Eat your hearts out because today we’re tackling a motion picture that took the box office by storm earlier this year.   No one could have ever predicted that this little superhero flick […]
