The French Dispatch (Blu-ray Review)

While the tentpoles and franchises are our given multimedia events of every filmgoing year, Wes Anderson is certainly one for the indies or cinephile market. For myself, he’s a clear my schedule and get to his latest film immediately kind of director. And in 2021, it felt like I was loaded with directors fitting that […]

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Delivers The Best Spidey In The MCU (Movie Review)

Spider-Man: No Way Home opens this weekend with the added pressure of possible leaks and spoilers that feel gargantuan even for the MCU. Tom Holland and the rest of the cast have remained tight-lipped over speculation regarding the plot and cast (though apparently, not producer Kevin Feige). Movies, of course, are not just about checking […]

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray Review)

While I don’t agree with or appreciate the toxic way in which fanboys went about demanding the “Snyder Cut” of 2017’s Justice League, I’m happy that it existed, was greenlit to be finished and we were able to all check it out. Debuting as a crown jewel of HBO MAX, it was the talk of […]

Motherless Brooklyn (Blu-Ray Review)

Edward Norton’s second crack at directing makes its way home on Blu-ray sans any Oscar nominations but is nonetheless a solid adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s award-winning novel. There are have been plenty of gumshoe detective tales in cinema. Some like Chinatown are masterworks, while too many are forgettable – like that one that with ‘Mulholland‘ in […]

Now nominated for an Academy Award in the category that kind of feels like a grand victory for this little film, The Lighthouse has arrived on Blu-ray.

Daybreakers (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Daybreakers is a genre film that entices with a fairly interesting concept. What if somehow the world became a place where vampirism somehow became the norm and humans were the mythical beings that we never really saw. The concept is intriguing. The execution might be where the sum of its parts begin to crumble. Celebrating […]

Aquaman (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

It was only a matter of time I suppose, but here we are and low and behold we unbelievably, finally have an Aquaman movie.  The masterful James Wan pulled off the what was almost deemed the impossible.  He defied the odds and marvelously brought to the big screen an absurd superhero project, which has been […]

Streets Of Fire – 35th Anniversary Edition Steelbook (Blu-ray Review)

One of Shout Factory’s biggest and most popular releases of its Shout Select line has been Walter Hill’s Streets Of Fire. It was a pretty impressive release that was loaded to the brim with bonus materials. A film that fittingly serves as a musical cult classic of sorts turns 35 years old next year, but […]

American Psycho: Uncut Version (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Is it wrong to admit that when I sat down to write my very first screenplay American Psycho was a huge influence?  It’s true.  To this day I’m so mystified by the character of Patrick Bateman.  I find his motives, thoughts and crazy action undeniably intriguing.   The one universal truth remains that you’ll never […]

If you’re a Region Free enthusiast like myself, you’ll know David Lynch’s Wild At Heart has had various Blu-ray releases over the years in different countries. In the United States, however, there’s been just one. It was a Twilight Time release that has been out of print for many years. Limited releases is their business […]

Murder On The Orient Express (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I’ve long been a fan of the works of Agatha Christie, either through actually reading one of the books or checking out an adaptation of one I hadn’t put my eyes to text with.  In terms of movie-going, when the trailer dropped for this Kenneth Branagh film, it had an interesting approach to it, but […]
