Disney’s Jungle Cruise Is An Enjoyable, Familiar Ride (Movie Review)

Disney’s latest theme park ride-turned-potential blockbuster, Jungle Cruise, stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt as two people who board a man-made contraption and mostly bicker as astounding sights and sounds are just out of reach. As a cinematic version of what it’s like to go through “It’s A Small World After,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” and, yes, “Jungle Cruise,” this is as a close as we’re probably gonna get to a plot that mirrors what guests of the Happiest Place on Earth actually do while experiencing said attractions. Plus, having terrific chemistry between these co-stars beats whomever you had to sit next to when you were on those rides, right? All aboard, then!

‘Stillwater’ Flows As A Procedural, Human Drama (Movie Review)

Stillwater Movie ReviewBefore I begin with introducing Stillwater I have something to admit.  I have not written a review of anything since last November.  If memory serves me correct, the third season of Westworld was my last.  I had a lot of big changes, losses and even happy gains happen in my life since then.  I needed time away from being overly critical about things like movies.  I feel it was therapeutic, but also coming back slowly into the fold here may bode very well for me.  That’s what I am hoping for at least.  Plus I got to bring my fiancé to her first press screening ever.  Win!  Now about that Stillwater movie.  It may have not been showing for us press at the most desirable of places here in Austin, but when I watched the trailer something about it spoke loudly to me.  Here’s this man going into a foreign country and he’s risking everything to prove his daughter’s innocence.  I don’t have those kind of problems in life, but I can definitely relate to the fact that I have spent a lot of my time recently traveling outside my comfort zone, having many first experiences and really risking it all for something I believe in (also known as not taking the safe path in life).

Masters of the Universe: Revelation (Review)

After much ado the past few years about a Netflix-exclusive He-Man project, the moment finally arrived last week when the five-episode animated series debuted on the ever popular streaming service. With a cast that features the likes of Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Liam Cunningham, Justin Long, Jason Mewes, Chris Wood and Henry Rollins, viewers certainly cannot cite a weak roster for any problems with the production. So big names aside, just how strong is this show?

GI Joe: Retaliation (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Paramount’s a pretty timely studio when it comes to 4K Ultra-HD upgrades. If you have a franchise you like or a film that’s getting remade, they probably have a 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray release ready to go around the time it comes out. With the new GI Joe film Snake Eyes out in theaters, it was high time to get those former entries into the mixer for 4K goodness. Oddly no new Atmos track or bonus features here, so you’ll have to float on whether you think the new transfer alone will do it. This review will cover 2013’s Jon M. Chu directed sequel, GI Joe: Retaliation, which puts the whole Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson “franchise Viagra” theory to the test. That arrives with the preceding film, GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra, on 4K Ultra-HD Blur-ay July 20th. You can land yourself copy of this one by using the paid Amazon Associates link below.

Batman: The Long Halloween – Part Two (Blu-ray Review)

June saw the first half of the DC Animated Universe’s adaptation of the seminal Batman comic book arc, The Long Halloween. It was a pretty big deal, as its been such an influential story any way you shake it regarding the caped crusader. And what better crew to have done it justice than that of the well regarded animation unit they have going on. This second half arrives to conclude things on August 10th. Aside from the Blue Beetle short if features no bonus features about the film itself. Please note, that there will also be a 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray release later this year for the whole she-bang of Part One and Part Two for a complete The Long Halloween release for bats. If Blu-ray is your bag and just grabbing these two parts is it for you, go ahead and use the paid Amazon Associates link following the review to land yourself a copy in time for release.

Oddly no new Atmos track or bonus features here, so you’ll have to float on whether you think the new transfer alone will do it. This first review will cover 2009’s Stephen Sommers film, GI Joe: The Rise Of Cobra, which I oddly found myself a fan of when it came out, despite it being largely dismissed. That arrives with the other film, GI Joe: Retaliation, on 4K Ultra-HD Blur-ay July 20th. You can land yourself copy of this one by using the paid Amazon Associates link below.

A Quiet Place Part II (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

If people want to see something, they WILL go to the theaters for it, as proven by one of the “return to cinemas” biggest hits in A Quiet Place Part II. The first film was wildly successful a few years back, so of course you know Paramount would want to capitalize on those big box office dollars. With a shortened home video window now, it feels like a literally just saw the film a few weeks ago (Tho its been 2 months). But nonetheless, here it comes to 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray after an exclusive period on Paramount+. It has a nice array of bonus features, but one of the coolest things is that this is a modern movie with a native 4K presentation. There’s a lot of (nice) 4K upscales out there when it comes to today’s blockbusters. You’ll be able to grab this one (Also available on a double feature release with the first one) when it arrives on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray July 27th. You can pre-order the film using the paid Amazon Associates link following the review.

The Dead Zone – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Last year, Paramount released a multi-movie set of Stephen King films which featured the long awaited debut of David Cronenberg’s The Dead Zone on Blu-ray. I had an inkling at that time that the following year we’d get a Scream Factory Collector’s Edition of the 1983 film. I’ll pat myself on the back here, because on July 27th, I’ll be proven right. They’ve done the film up nicely with a load of new extras, including a Brooke Adams interview and 4 commentaries. In addition, this also features a brand new 4K scan of the film (and in its correct 1.85:1 aspect ratio, too). Its surprising the film has taken so long to get to Blu-ray in the first place, being both good, notable and having both a name star director and actor in it. But, alas, better late than never. And better a big Collector’s Edition than bare bones. You can pre-order the release via the paid Amazon Associates link below the review to ensure yourself a copy for release day, July 27th!

Initiation (Blu-ray Review)

Coming to you on Blu-ray July 20th is the modern slasher film, Initiation (I don’t know how to make the exclamation point upside down). The film is the product of director, co-writer and co-producer John Berdado. Its based off of his short film Dembanger, which was also the original title of this film. It was set to be a South By Southwest premiere film, but the pandemic had other plans for it and wound up premiering at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival last year. For those at home, its been available via streaming rental/purchase since May, but now finds itself with a Blu-ray that has some neat little bonus features to accompany the release. You can own Initiation (And its Day 1 is a rather decent price for a new movie) by using the paid Amazon Associates link that follows the review.

Shyamalan’s ‘Old’ Is Best As A B-Movie Thriller (Movie Review)

Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan is back with Old, an adaptation of a 2010 Swiss graphic novel, Sandcastle by Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters. The last time the auteur adapted another’s produced work was eleven years ago. That film was the critical and commercial flop, The Last Airbender, based on Nickelodeon’s iconic animated series. Still, the film’s premise: a group of tourists get stuck on a remote section of an island and begin aging rapidly, definitely intrigued me. Old might be sourced a graphic novel, but the 108 minutes I experienced are very much in the Shyamalan wheelhouse. The question is whether this is good like The Sixth Sense or, well, Glass

‘Snakes Eyes’ Delivers Derivative Action (Movie Review)

Eight years after the last G.I. Joe adventure hit the big screen Paramount and MGM suit up for a reboot with Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins. A few months ago, an impressive trailer highlighted cool ninja moves, outlandish stand-offs on motorcycles, and a black helmet that’s wicked cool but surely not great to actually see out of. As the titular character, Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) seemed more than capable of pulling off silent assassin simmering with bouts of humor. Add in Ready or Not‘s Samara Weaving, who ditches her wedding dress for gear that’s more practical, and I was totally onboard. Pandemic notwithstanding, this was primed to be silly fun for summer 2021. Did Hasbro’s other big toy franchise finally get its due? Read on, Joes!

The Wraith – Collector’s Series (Blu-ray Review)

Welp, for many people, a big bucket list item is being crossed off. For as long as I can remember over the last ten years, The Wraith has been at the top of many people’s wishlists to make the jump to Blu-ray. Years ago when Lionsgate introduced the Vestron Video line, peoples’ hopes grew bigger. Then there was rumor a year or so ago that it was indeed being worked on. FINALLY – no more speculation – its here! And they’ve done a heck of job putting together some new bonus materials for the release. And can you believe that for day 1 they are only charging $12 for this beauty? Its out now (It hit shelves on July 20th). You can easily order yourself a copy by using the paid Amazon Associates link following the review.
