Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. GAME OF THRONES: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON – For me, Season 6 of GAME OF THRONES may be my favorite so far. Really because it was a culmination of everything we have seen so far come together and form into a series that seems one step closer to actually having a final ending. Previous seasons, we didn’t know how things were going to end or if they would end because so many loose ends were flying about. Season S6 changed that and in a big way by […]Read On »

SAUSAGE PARTY highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Nov. 8, 2016

SAUSAGE PARTY | © 2016 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. SAUSAGE PARTY – The whole idea behind SAUSAGE PARTY is a bit disturbing, that food is actually conscious and reacts to how we, well, devour them. Like I don’t want to know about my bread loving getting spread with mustard and then at the same time get eaten in extreme pain. Luckily, it is all in good, filthy and dirty-talking fun with a host of funny people including Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, James Franco, Danny McBride and more. Obviously this is a very […]Read On »

Movie Review: COME AND FIND ME

COME AND FIND ME movie poster | ©2016 Lionsgate/Saban

Rating: R Stars: Aaron Paul, Annabelle Wallis, Garret Dillahunt, Enver Gjokaj, Dean Redman Writer: Zack Whedon Director: Zack Whedon Distributor: Saban Films/Lionsgate Release Date (theatrical and on demand): November 11, 2016 COME AND FIND ME is a curious title for this film. The more we know about the plot, the more we realize that it’s hardly something the missing Claire (Annabelle Wallis) would say to her distraught and determined boyfriend David (Aaron Paul). After some fun character introductions showing the couple in playful mode, David wakes to find Claire gone from the house they share. At first, he’s not worried […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones, Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ben Foster Writer: David Koepp, based on the novel by Dan Brown Director: Ron Howard Distributor: Sony Release Date: October 28, 2016 With INFERNO, star Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard are back for their third go-round with historian Robert Langdon, hero of 2006’s THE DA VINCI CODE and 2009’s ANGELS & DEMONS. All three films are adapted from Dan Brown’s novels. In quality, the film INFERNO sits somewhere between its two predecessors. Neither as much fun as DA VINCI CODE nor as completely silly as […]Read On »

LIGHTS OUT | © 2016 Warner Home Video

LIGHTS OUT – While this is billed as an indie horror flick, Warner Bros is the distributor so it can’t be that much of an independent production. That said, LIGHTS OUT is a really good horror flick. Based on a short video that went viral in 2013, LIGHTS OUT follows the story of Sophie (Maria Bello) that is obsessed with her imaginary friend Diana. So much so, she has alienated her kids and friends. It turns out that Sophie has been having a relationship with Diana for quite a while but Diana may not be imaginary at all but a […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE WHOLE TRUTH

THE WHOLE TRUTH movie poster | ©2016 Lionsgate

Rating: R Stars: Keanu Reeves, Renee Zellweger, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Gabriel Basso, Jim Belushi Writer: Rafael Jackson Director: Courtney Hunt Distributor: Lionsgate Premiere Release Date: October 21, 2016 THE WHOLE TRUTH has a set-up that seems like it ought to make a perfectly good movie, or even a miniseries – lawyer defending a minor being tried as an adult for an act of patricide. However, the slow pacing, digressions that go nowhere and multiplying implausible details act against the movie’s best interests. Keanu Reeves plays Richard Ramsey, a Southern lawyer who narrates the film in what seems like an effort to […]Read On »
