‘The Foreigner’ Finds Jackie Chan Taken To A Dark Place (Movie Review)

I suppose it was inevitable to see Jackie Chan enter the ‘old man action’ phase of his career. More specifically, The Foreigner finds Chan entering this part of career when it comes to his English-speaking roles in films given a wide release in America.

The Lawnmower Man – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

This make sense, but still caught me by surprise when Scream Factory announced not just a release, but a Collector’s Edition of The Lawnmower Man. I’m just so used to seeing trashy cheap, $5 dump bin double feature DVDs of the two Lawnmower Man films together. Now, the film gets to see some love and […]

No Escape (Blu-ray Review)

The movie title No Escape (not the 1994 one) sounds so familiar, doesn’t it?  At least to me it does.  It sounds like it could easily be a name of a KISS song from the 1980s or something when they were struggling to find their sound during the Killers era, but I digress.  Perhaps what shocked me even more […]

I Am Steve McQueen (Blu-ray Review)

Steve McQueen was certainly “the man” when it comes to the start of action heroes, and his run in the 1960s and 1970s.  Bullitt, The Getaway, The Thomas Crown Affair, The Great Escape and many others are downright staples of anyone studying action in film.  And McQueen was easily one of the biggest and most […]
