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 […]

The Lighthouse (Blu-ray Review)

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. It released on January 7th (My review copy came afterward) and hopefully will be one seen by those who didn’t have the luxury of it playing in a […]

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 […]

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 […]

Wild At Heart – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

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 […]

The Florida Project (Blu-ray Review)

Director Sean Baker had himself a nice little breakout with the acclaimed film Tangerine a few years ago. Here he returns with his follow up, The Florida Project. I thin this one expected a little more love at the Academy Awards this year, but has wound up touting a Willem DaFoe Best Supporting Actor nomination […]

‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Is A Breezy, Coach Class Ride (Movie Review)

In theory, it would seem like people should welcome another take on Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express. A new adaptation means putting together a mix of veteran actors and rising stars in a presumably handsomely filmed production that focuses on the acting in a character-centric mystery. Director and star Kenneth Branagh accomplishes this […]

Walter Hill’s cult classic rock n’ roll fable Streets of Fire is finally making its way to Blu-ray in the United States after previously only being available in the UK and Germany among other countries that seem to get the cool stuff way before us. But, for the patient (Or not region free), the waiting […]
