ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Oct. 18, 2016


  Movies: ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS – The sequel to Disney’s original ALICE live action movie is an interesting take on the myth of the classic tale. While it received so-so reviews from critics and fans were a bit disinterested in the whole film (read: it flopped at the box office), it does a good job of bringing back the elements of the first movie that made it good with a strong cast (Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and, of course, Johnny Depp) and an interesting story about Alice (Wasikowska) returning to Neverland and once again battling […]Read On »


WARCRAFT highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Sept. 27, 2016

WARCRAFT | © 2016 Universal Home Entertainment

  Movies: WARCRAFT – When a movie gets so universally panned by critics and fans alike, you go into it with very low expectations. That probably helped in my viewing of WARCRAFT because shockingly I actually found it not half bad. Yeah, the plot is basic and rambling with dialog and nonsensical elements along with literally nothing being explained other than bad orcs, good humans. But the special effects, which looked atrocious in the trailers, holds up alright and the action sequences are pretty good and at times brutal. But something had to make this become the highest grossing video […]Read On »


CAPTAIN AMERICA CIVIL WAR highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Sept. 13, 2016

CAPTAIN AMERICA CIVIL WAR | © 2016 Disney Home Video

  Movies: CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR – One of the best movies of 2016 is indeed a comic book movie. And it is a doozy in a lot of ways. First it is one of the last movies of Phase 2 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it does a tremendous job of wrapping up everything that has come before it. Not only is CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR a continuation of the previous Cap film, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, but it also serves as a sequel to AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. The film straddles the line of showing the […]Read On »


NOW YOU SEE ME 2 highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Sept. 6, 2016

NOW YOU SEE ME 2 | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

Movies: NOW YOU SEE ME 2 – The first NOW YOU SEE ME was a fun romp that mixed high profile magic with the possibility it was real mixed up in a caper involving good and bad magicians as well as some revenge elements. It ended with a finality of any one-off movie but this being Hollywood, something that becomes successful usually means it gets a sequel and here we are. Luckily, it isn’t bad albeit quite a bit different from the first. Instead of grand magic acts that are complex and amazing we instead get some tricky and slight-of-hand. […]Read On »


KEANU highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for August 2, 2016

  KEANU – If you have ever seen the comedy of Key & Peele you know the duo is famous for pushing the limits and making the smallest thing down right hilarious.

Blu-ray Review: GODS OF EGYPT

GODS OF EGYPT | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

Cast: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gerard Butler, Chadwick Boseman, Emma Booth, Rachael Black, Elodie Yung, Brenton Thwaites, Courtney Eaton Writers: Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless Director: Alex Proyas Distributor: Lionsgate Home Entertainment My experience with GODS OF EGYPT differs quite a bit from the lambasting it has taken from the critics when it first arrived in theaters, but I may have those same critics to thank for it. I had such extremely low expectations going in and that may have contributed to actually enjoying an amazingly over-the-top CG laden film that fictionalizes the powerful deities place among mortals. When I first saw the […]Read On »


Blu-ray Review: VENOM

VENOM | © 2016 Blue Underground

Cast: Klaus Kinski, Oliver Reed, Nicol Williamson, Sarah Miles, Sterling Hayden, Susan George, Cornelia Sharpe Writer: Robert Carrington Director: Piers Haggard Publisher: Blue Underground Billed as the greatest snake-in-the-house movie of all time (Are there a lot of them out there? I’m asking for a friend), 1981’s VENOM begins as a kidnapping for ransom flick that quickly evolves into a fight for your life against the deadliest snake on the planet, the black mamba. A terrorist, his henchman chauffeur and a family maid strike a deal to kidnap a wealthy woman’s son but things go wrong quick as a mix […]Read On »


Blu-ray Review: THE FINEST HOURS

THE FINEST HOURS | © 2016 Disney Home Video

Interesting that Disney has done something that doesn’t involve their fairy tale franchise, Marvel or LucasFilm. Not often we see a standalone movie from the massive corporation that doesn’t have any ties to the stuff that makes it the big bucks. But with THE FINEST HOURS we have an action film based on true events about the Coast Guard saving a merchant sea vessel after it gets split in half and those that survive are restlessly keeping it afloat. The visuals are pretty cool because how the hell does a boat stay floating after it has been sliced literally in […]Read On »

RISEN | © 2016 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

  Cast: Joseph Fiennes, Tom Felton, Peter Firth, Cliff Curtis, Maria Botto, Luis Callejo Writers: Kevin Reynolds, Paul Aiello Director: Kevin Reynolds Distributor: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment  An interesting, albeit strange, story of a pair of Roman soldiers that set off on a mission to find the body of Jesus Christ after uprising begins in the country over reports that they holy figure rose from the dead. RISEN stars Joseph Fiennes as Clavius, a non-believer tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus after he died in order to prove that he has not risen and is not […]Read On »



THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D | © 2016 RLJ Entertainment

Cast: Kane Hodder, Juan Riedinger, Al Snow, Megan Hensley, Aaron Massey, Kristina Page, Jessica Sonneborn Writer: Jessica Sonneborn Director: Jessica Sonneborn Distributor: RLJ Entertainment If you are expecting one of those exorcism flicks where a poor woman gets possessed by a demon and turns her head and vomits all over her loved ones and floats in the air, this ain’t it. Instead THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D should have been called THE HAUNTING BY ALICE D, because the Alice in question terrorizes a group of friends and their hired help (read hookers) in an old mansion that used to be […]Read On »
