Yeah, so a lot of stuff this week. Beginning of the month is usually a packed one but this week is crazy (and time consuming on my part). So check out what’s available on video this week. Movies: BRIDGE OF SPIES – During the height of the Cold War just before the Soviets erected the wall in East Berlin, a Russian spy is taken captive and put on trial for crimes against the U.S. An insurance attorney (Tom Hanks) is brought in to give him a proper defense but given the time it was anything but fair and he is …Read On »

MADOFF | ©2016 ABC

Few English composers have gotten to score the stylistic extremes of America like the creatively and physically pugnacious Stephen Raynor-Endelman, a musician of all emotional trades if there ever was one. A musical prodigy who’d write two operas by the wage of 18, Endelman moved to New York to start fulfilling a movie scoring career with such individualistic, eccentric scores as HOUSEHOLD SAINTS, POSTCARDS FROM AMERICA and IMAGINARY CRIMES. His music depicting rough and tumble lives with humanity to spare before going back to the British and Irish isles with the romantic comedy, and fatherly drama of THE ENGLISHMAN WHO …Read On »

GOOSEBUMPS | © 2016 Fox Home Entertainment

The last week of the month in video releases are either jam packed or slim pickings, the latter is the case this week but there is still some decent stuff to check out. Movies: GOOSEBUMPS – Now usually when you take a fan-favorite children’s franchise, slap it with high amounts of CG and an all-star cast everyone gets their panties in a bunch about ruining their childhood or driving a stake through the heart of whatever was left of the history. But GOOSEBUMPS the movie was actually wildly well received by critics and fans alike. Maybe that’s because they didn’t …Read On »

Business is picking up in the video realm with some good stuff out this week and things will continue to get better in the coming weeks as studios get over the holiday hangover of virtually nothing coming out. Movies: STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON – We have seen a number of docudramas come out regarding the rise to fame of some of the most famous rock groups out there but the back stories of the rap world (except for maybe Eminem) have gone without any documentation. But now we get the behind-the-scenes look at one of the most famous rap groups of …Read On »

This said, THE 5TH WAVE has the benefits of moving at a fast …Read On »

Blu-ray and DVD titles for the week of Jan. 12, 2016

THE MARTIAN | © 2016 Fox Home Entertainment

The early weeks of the New Year aren’t that exciting normally so what we get on video isn’t normally that exciting either. However, there are still some stuff that are worthwhile checking out. Movies: THE MARTIAN – The hilarious comedy THE MARTIAN that just won for best Comedy/Musical movie at the Golden Globes makes it way to video this week. Wait, OK, let’s just be honest. There’s no way this is considered a comedy other than to get the award in the category. Are there funny moments? Definitely. Is it a comedy? Not a chance. Matt Damon stars as an …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: NIGHTMARES

NIGHTMARES Blu-ray | ©2015 Shout! Factory

Stars: Cristina Raines, Emilio Estevez, Lance Henriksen, Richard Masur, Veronica Cartwright Writers: Christopher Crowe, Jeffrey Bloom Director: Joseph Sargent Distributor: Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $29.99 Despite its uneven quality, 1983’s NIGHTMARES has been a much desired film to get a much-deserved Blu-ray release. Originally salvaging rejected scripts from the 1981 anthology TV series DARKROOM (because they were too intense), producer (and writer of three of the stories) Christopher Crowe took the scripts and transformed them into a four-part anthology film. With all anthology movies, the entries a pretty hit and miss – and the lengths vary as well – …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE CAR

THE CAR - Blu-ray | ©2015 Shout! Factory

Stars: James Brolin, Kathleen Lloyd, John Marley, Elizabeth Thompson Writers: Dennis Shryack & Michael Butler & Lane Slate based on a story by Shryack & Butler Director: Elliot Silverstein Distributor: Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $29.99 You have to hand it to Universal Pictures in 1977. Still reeling from the blockbuster success of JAWS in 1975, they were clearly anxious to replicate that success. Instead of immediately dipping back into shark-infested waters, they tried something else with THE CAR. Taking the major beats from JAWS and replacing the shark with a demonic car, it seemed as if this would be …Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Lili Simmons, Richard Jenkins, David Arquette, Sid Haig, Zahn McClarnon Writer: S. Craig Zahler Director: S. Craig Zahler Distributor: RLJ Entertainment/Image Entertainment Release Date (Blu-ray/DVD): December 29, 2015 Movie Westerns are still being made, but the old cowboys-and-Native Americans subgenre is no longer very active, for what can be hoped are obvious reasons. BONE TOMAHAWK gets around those reasons with one of the great gifts that horror provides – when it’s not acceptable to depict a whole group of human beings as bloodthirsty monsters, use actual bloodthirsty monsters. BONE TOMAHAWK …Read On »
