Alien: Covenant (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Six years ago I fell in love with the Alien franchise when I was forced to tackle the Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set in my complete review of it all here.  I had never seen the third or fourth flicks before then.  Two years later I became of a bonafide disciple of Ridley Scott’s franchise […]

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

If the year 2011 taught us nothing but the fact that good things can come from rebooting a beloved franchise, then I’d be alright to call it a day right here and now.  Never in my wildest dreams could I have ever conjured up such a crazy notion that the quirky Planet of the Apes franchise could ever be […]

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Just what the world needed…another reboot of a legendary franchise.   That was exactly my sentiments when I first learned about the production of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  I remember watching and enjoying the original films as a kid, but not enough to warrant my full attention to what was going on behind […]

Why Him? (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Why Him? is ordinarily not the kind of film I would go see in the theaters.  Had it not been for two key factors I don’t think I would have gone.  First it had the very irresistible and hilarious trailers on its side.   That Red-band one was insane.  Although I went in hoping that all the funny […]

The Disaster Artist [Work-In-Progress] (SXSW Review)

The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and lovable tribute to the enigmatic and oddly admirable figure who is Tommy Wiseau, director of The Room. This film is really for those who love The Room for its off-the-wall absurdity and incomprehensibility, but there is enough setup and care given to establishing just what kind of person […]

King Cobra (Blu-ray Review)

Based on a stranger-than-fiction true story, King Cobra is a deliciously dark, twisted plunge into the behind-the-scenes world of the pornography industry. Starring Christian Slater, James Franco, Molly Ringwald and Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald, King Cobra is part delirious tabloid-shocker satire, part American tragedy. Making its Blu-ray and DVD debut on February 14th, 2017 from […]

Why Him? Spreads The F-ing Holiday Cheer (Movie Review)

Why Him? is ordinarily not the kind of film I would go see in the theaters.  Had it not been for two key factors I don’t think I would have gone.  First it has the very irresistible and hilarious trailers on its side.   That Red-band one is insane.  Although I’m hoping all the funny parts […]

Sausage Party (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Sausage Party, which sort of made its premiere at SXSW this year, is one film I purposely missed out on theatrically this year.  I know I’m not alone in my way of thinking.  The overall consensus is very split on this one too.  Either people seem to love it or others outright hate it like […]

The Interview: Freedom Edition (Blu-ray Review)

A small part of the world cried foul, threats were made from various sources, but here we are with the home release of the movie that presents an insane premise and matches it with the same sense of humor and themes that have made successes out of the filmmaking team that is Seth Rogen and […]
