The Nun (Blu-ray Review)

Next to the Marvel Universe, the most successful current ongoing cinematic shared universe is the horror genre’s The Conjuring.

Making her big impression and […]

Lights Out (Blu-ray Review)

Lights Out is the directorial debut of Davd S. Sandberg, based off his short film.  Produced by James Wan, its almost as if he’s giving back as his first film was based off of a short he made (Saw).  Turning a horror short into a feature length film can be a tricky business.  These ideas […]

The Conjuring 2 (Blu-ray Review)

Three years ago, James Wan took the summer by surprise and by storm with his horror opus, The Conjuring.  A period supernatural horror piece that followed up his highly popular and profitable Insidious.  It followed real life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren on one of their documented cases.  A sequel was certain, but while […]

After stepping out of the horror realm to put his foot on the gas and deliver the huge action blockbuster that was Furious 7, director James Wan returns to what he knows best with a sequel to his 2013 horror hit The Conjuring.

‘The Conjuring 2’ Doubles Down On The Scares, But Not Much Else (Movie Review)

There hasn’t been that much buzz leading up to the theatrical release of The Conjuring 2.  While it took me a couple watches to warm up to the first installment (my Blu-ray review here), I guess what I’m most surprised is the return of James Wan in the directors chair.  After he got the invite […]

Furious 7: Extended Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Furious 7 is the little engine that could in my opinion.  Not even the untimely and tragic death of one of the franchise’s main stars, Paul Walker, was able to completely derail this speeding train from moving forward and becoming an unstoppable global phenomenon grossing over $1.5 billion dollars worldwide at the box office.  Make no […]

Furious 7 Extended Edition Speeds Onto Blu-ray September 15th!

Furious 7…you know…that little film that made over 1.5 billion dollars already worldwide.  The box office blockbuster brings the franchise to all new gravity-defying heights (literally) in the biggest, most heartfelt (with the film’s touching tribute to the late Paul Walker, taken from this world way too young) and action packed ride yet.  And best […]

FURIOUS 7 Is Michael Bay On Steroids! (Movie Review)

Furious 7 is the little engine that could in my opinion.  Not even the untimely and tragic death of one of the franchise’s main stars, Paul Walker, was able to completely derail this speeding train from moving forward.  Make no doubt about it.  The Fast and the Furious franchise has been quite the global exploit […]

FURIOUS 7 Has A New Trailer And It Is All Kinds Of Crazy

It should be no surprise that Furious 7 is one of my most anticipated films of the year.  All the main players return and the cast gets all the added value in the world in the way of Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Djimon Hounsou, and Tony Jaa, among others.  Now under James Wan’s direction, the action […]

Annabelle (Blu-ray Review)

Annabelle has the success of 2013’s supernatural thriller The Conjuring to thank for its mere existence on our planet.  If you take away nothing else from this Blu-ray review, make sure you please engrave that in your memory banks, the non-volatile ones.  Annabelle was an evil possessed doll (think Chucky-like) whose first appearance was also […]

Furious 7 Starts Its Engines With This Trailer Debut!

There is certainly a lot of interest coming with the next installment in the Fast & Furious franchise.  The unfortunate passing of Paul Walker is part of the curiosity for many, in terms of both looking at an unfortunate incident and wondering how this film will work around it, but to put that bit of sadness […]

‘Annabelle’ And Her Pasadena Dream House (Movie Review)

Annabelle is the cinematic equivalent of, “who cares,” which I was tempted to write as the lone words to describe my thoughts on the film.  There is nothing offensively bad about this film, but there is really just nothing here.  With very few original ideas and the amount of story that could be seen as […]
