Of all my years of fervent movie watching, 2016 is by far my most proud.

Without Warning (Blu-ray Review)

For me, Without Warning is one of the most exciting releases of 2014.  No, its not Twin Peaks or Batman 1966 finally coming out, but its up there.  Had I heard much about it before this release?  No.  I really dig the fact that Scream Factory has gotten this 34 year old film that’s never […]

This may be one of the more ironic results of the old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again,” when it comes to filmmaking.  Back in 1984, director Tim Burton was fired from Disney for making a live-action short called Frankenweenie, which was deemed ‘too scary’ for children.  Now, for whatever reason, […]

Comic Con 2012: Frankenweenie Homage Trailer

Frankenweenie continues to be a a film I look forward to.  I love the fact that Tim Burton has revisited an idea he first made into a live-action short, but has now turned into a feature-length, stop-motion animated film (not to mention in both Black & White and in 3D).  It features a large voice […]

Rounders (Blu-ray Review)

Wow, looks like it’s time to party like it’s 1999, I mean 1998, up in here!  Time really flies when you’re having fun.  It seems like yesterday when I was watching these two up-and-comers tackle the screen with an industry veteran.  The newbies were Matt Damon and some kid named Edward Norton.  The veteran was […]

Space: 1999 Season One (Blu-ray Review)

Space: 1999 is hard to categorize.  It’s a mix of Forbidden Planet, Star Trek, and 2001 – A Space Odyssey and yet it’s it’s own thing as well.  All of the sets for the show were supposed to be originally for the second season of creator Gerry Anderson’s show UFO, but when that was canceled […]
