Blu-ray Review: STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS

STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS | © 2016 Disney Home Video

Not a lot more can be said about STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS … it is a throwback to the original film (some would say just a remake of A NEW HOPE) but with fresh faces, some interesting ideas about what happened after RETURN OF THE JEDI. I am a big fan of THE FORCE AWAKENS. Sure it borrows heavily from the original but after what we, as fans, went through with the prequels, this is what we needed. What everyone needed to get on board with the franchise again. And it delivers in spades with plenty of questions yet […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: DEATH WALKS TWICE

DEATH WALKS TWICE | © 2016 Arrow Video

Arrow Video has putting out some really good titles over the past couple of years digging dip into the bowels of moviedom and coming out with rare gems that have been converted into high definition. Unfortunately, DEATH WALKS TWICE isn’t one of these gems but isn’t half bad either. The double disc set includes two films from director Luciano Ercoli—DEATH WALKS AT MIDNIGHT and DEATH WALKS ON HIGH HEELS—both starring Italian actress Nieves Navarro (billed under the name Susan Scott). In the first film, DEATH WALKS ON HIGH HEELS, Navarro plays a cabaret dancer that is being hunted by someone […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: EXPOSED

EXPOSED | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

Apparently EXPOSED actually made it to theaters, which after watching it is a bit of a joke to itself. While it may not have made it to the screens in the U.S., it made it to the U.K. where it made $122. You read that right. $122. It could be a lack of promotion, I don’t remember seeing anything about it promoted. Could also be because it sucks on so many levels, no one in their right mind would pay money for it. There are essentially two plotlines going on simultaneously. The first deals with Keanu Reeves character trying to […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: FORSAKEN

FORSAKEN | © 2016 Entertainment One

UNFORGIVEN is one of my favorite movies of all time because it paints a picture of bad man trying to go good but he is just soooo damn good at being bad that he falls back into his old ways with the flip of a switch. FORSAKEN tries hard to be a clone of this storyline (at least in some degree) with Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), er wait, John Henry Clayton coming home to his father’s town after years of being a gunslinger in the hopes of leading a simple, quiet life away from violence. But come on, this is […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: POINT BREAK

POINT BREAK | © 2016 Warner Home Video

This should probably be called X-GAMES: THE MOVIE because we get just about every extreme sport rolled into one film in POINT BREAK. I will say, however, that if you are going to do a remake or re-imagining or whatever you’d like to call it, this is the way to go. The original POINT BREAK focused on a group of bank robbers that also happened to be surfers and an FBI guy gains the group’s trust to bring them down from the inside. The same plotline is here but instead of surfers, they are all extreme sports people from snowboarding, […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE HATEFUL EIGHT

THE HATEFUL EIGHT | © 2016 Anchor Bay Home Entertainment

I love me a good Western. Even those that happen to be filled with more talking than what’s found on the Congressional floor. Of course, that’s what you get with Quentin Tarantino. To say the guy doesn’t like long-winded dialogue is like saying a mouse doesn’t like cheese. But that isn’t a knock against him. That’s his bread and butter and you know it going in. It worked during INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS a film set in World War II and it works here in a Western about a group of nasty individuals that all find themselves trapped during a terrible blizzard […]Read On »

It’s springtime, so you know what that means, right? It’s time for summer blockbuster trailers. I’ve got a couple of the big summer movie trailers below, plus an actual spring release.
