Vampire’s Kiss / High Spirits – Double Feature (Blu-ray Review)

Before the new year hit, Scream Factory said that 2015 was going to see an increase in the Double Feature titles compared to years prior.  As a fan of their Double Feature titles (And a lot of Shout! Factory’s 4-Movie Marathon series), I got pretty excited.  And they really weren’t stretching the truth, as they’ve […]

Look Who’s ‘Taken’ Now (Movie Review)

My favorite scene in A Walk Among the Tombstones, the previous Liam Neeson thriller that found the 62-year-old actor facing up against a number of deadly foes, involved Neeson’s character talking a knife-wielding man out of fighting, because they both knew how it would end.  It showed how much of an intimidating force Neeson can […]

Third Person (Blu-ray Review)

Third Person is the latest film from Paul Haggis, director of the on the nose Academy Award winner for Best Picture; Crash.  The film was a entrant in the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival where it wasn’t met with the greatest of buzz or accolades.  Despite boasting a rather impressive compilation of noteworthy stars and […]

Hard Boiled Neeson Takes ‘A Walk Among The Tombstones’ (Movie Review)

A Walk Among the Tombstones is a nice change of pace as far Liam Neeson’s career as a B-movie action star goes.  While the film may be sold as another chance to see Neeson use a particular set of skills to beat up some bad guys, it is really more of a detective story that […]

‘A Walk Among The Tombstones’ Mostly Thrills (Movie Review)

A Walk Among The Tombstones movie trailer could initially fool someone into thinking they should be expecting Taken 3.  The trailer for A Walk Among The Tombstones shares some of the similar DNA to Taken with the same leading man, Liam Neeson, as well as familiar plot devices such as a tape recorder.  However, the cover of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole […]

Two Epic Films from Legendary Filmmaker Ridley Scott Arrive as Collector’s Edition Blu-rays This October

Two of Ridley Scott’s best films are coming to Blu-ray in all new collector’s editions.  One is more obvious and that is Alien, Scott’s landmark sci-fi/horror feature, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary.  The other is Kingdom of Heaven, celebrating its 10th anniversary as Scott’s most underrated feature (granted the Director’s cut version is where it’s at).

The LEGO Movie: Everything Is Awesome Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Let’s get one thing straight from the start.  When I went into the press screening earlier this year I was completely against this movie.  While it looked unique and looked like it could be fun, I just did not want to invest the time in it and regret it later because you know life’s too short, yada, […]

‘A Million Ways’ To Seem Like A Western…Not Enough To Be Hilarious (Movie Review)

The surprising thing about Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West is how devoted to the genre it actually is. While I can only think of so many western comedies offhand, there are plenty of ways to turn the genre on its head and have a lot of fun with it. MacFarlane […]

The Nut Job (Blu-ray Review)

Get your head out of the gutter, pervert!  This is a kids movie!  The Nut Job was a little animated feature that came out in the behemoth of “soon to be classics” release month of January.  It hopped over its budget but didn’t really make a massive intake like a lot of animated gems do […]

What About ‘Non-Stop’ Though? (Movie Review)

It is fun to see how much credibility an actor with gravitas can bring to a really silly film.  Liam Neeson has returned to the action/thriller realm once again to star in an airplane-hijacking film, with twists and turns that go way too far in terms of being plausible.  It matters little though, as the […]

‘The Lego Movie’ Has Been Built Into Something Awesome (Movie Review)

This is one of those “expectations exceeded” situations.  I was already plenty happy to go into The Lego Movie, given the lively and fun marketing presented for this film, along with my knowledge that it has come from the directors or both Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, films I very […]
