Blu-ray Review: HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION

HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION | ©2014 Shout! Factory/Anchor Bay Entertainment

Distributor: Anchor Bay/Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $169.99 The significance of HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION, which brings together all 10 films under once roof, is not lost among die-hard films. The rights issues for the ten films spans several different companies and many different licensees which has made a box set like this seem more like a pipe dream in the past than a reality. Then some crazy thing happened – Anchor Bay (which controls HALLOWEEN, HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS and HALLOWEEN V: THE REVENGE OF MICHAEL MYERS), Miramax/The Weinstein Company which has HALLOWEEN: THE …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. – THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

Marvel's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. - THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON Blu-ray | ©2014 Marvel Studios

Stars: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Bill Paxton Suggested Retail Price: $79.99 Distributor: Marvel Studios/Buena Vista Home Entertainment One of the most disappointing things Marvel has done in its bid for superhero dominance is the creation of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. – an ABC TV series that should have been better than it actually was. Now it’s out on DVD and Blu-ray as THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON for the binge-viewers out there. And considering Joss Whedon, who wrote and directed THE AVENGERS, was at the helm and co-created the series with Jed …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: SOUTH PARK – THE COMPLETE SEVENTEENTH SEASON

SOUTH PARK - THE COMPLETE SEVENTEENTH SEASON Blu-ray | ©2014 Paramount Pictures Home Entertainment/Comedy Central

Voices: Trey Parker, Matt Stone Writer-Director: Trey Parker Distributor: Paramount Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $39.98 As SOUTH PARK kicks off its 18th season, it’s time to re-evaluate last year’s 10-episode run which resulted in the epic “Black Friday” trilogy. Last year was the first time SOUTH PARK didn’t have two seven-episode runs (one in the Spring, one in the Fall). Instead, everything was stockpiled in the fall and with four less episodes to boot. It didn’t affect the quality of the show, and if anything, it strengthened the laser focus of the show particularly when they produced the epic …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE WALKING DEAD – THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON

THE WALKING DEAD - Season 4 Blu-ray | ©2014 AMC

Stars: Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, Melissa McBride, Scott Wilson Suggested Retail Price: $69.98 Distributor: Anchor Bay Entertainment Even when you have the tendency to rip apart THE WALKING DEAD for its occasionally slow and plodding storytelling, it continues to do things normal TV series never dare tread – be bold and expectation-defying. THE WALKING DEAD, in four seasons, has provided a lush, rich zombie apocalypse – the closest we’ve ever had to a TV series capturing the complexities and nuances of the best of zombie feature films, most notably the cannon of …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: PUMPKINHEAD Collector’s Edition

PUMPKINHEAD - Collector's Edition | ©2014 Shout! Factory

Stars: Lance Henriksen, Jeff East, John D’Aquino, Kerry Remsen, Kimberly Ross Writer: Mark Patrick Carucci with Gary Gerani, based on a story by Carducci, Stan Winston and Richard Weinman and based on the poem by Ed Justin Director: Stan Winston Suggested Retail Price: $29.93 Distributor: Shout! Factory PUMPKINHEAD has always been one of those odd horror films that defies categorization. It’s an original concept, has a great lead creature, a unique premise yet, when all is said and done, never truly achieves the greatness its premise promises. After watching the Collector’s Edition of the 1988 film from Shout! Factory, I …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: WITHOUT WARNING

WITHOUT WARNING Blu-ray | ©2014 Shout! Factory

Stars: Jack Palance, Martin Landau, Tarah Nutter, Christopher S. Nelson, Cameron Mitchell, Neville Brand, Sue Ane Langdon, Ralph Meeker, Larry Storch Writer: Lyn Freeman, Daniel Grodnick, Ben Mett, Steve Mathis Director: Greydon Clark Suggested Retail Price: $26.99 Distributor: Shout! Factory WITHOUT WARNING is one of those oddball 1980 films that was released under different titles and different artwork as it rolled across the nation during platform releases, and like many films that did that, it’s hard to remember exactly what the film was about and which film it is. In most of the posters, there’s an alien on the front …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: MOTEL HELL Collector’s Edition

MOTEL HELL Blu-ray | ©2014 Shout! Factory

Stars: Rory Calhoun, Paul Linke, Nancy Parsons, Nina Axelrod, Wolfman Jack Writer: Robert Jaffe, Steven-Charles Jaffe Director: Kevin Connor Suggested Retail Price: $29.93 Distributor: Shout! Factory Of all the now cult 1980s movies, MOTEL HELL stands out as one of the craziest, strangest, funniest and most inventive. This 1980 horror flick which owes greatly to THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE has not been treated well on home video – its last incarnation on DVD it was paired up as a Midnite Movies no frills double feature with DERANGED. Once again Shout! Factory outdoes themselves with their re-release of cult gems and …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: CURTAINS

CURTAINS Blu-ray | ©2014 Synapse Films

Stars: John Vernon, Samantha Eggar, Linda ThorsonWriter: Robert Guza, Jr. Writer: Robert Guza, Jr. Director: Jonathan Stryker (pseudonym of Richard Ciupka) Suggested Retail Price: $24.95 Distributor: Synapse Films Jensen Farley was a film distributor in the early 1980s that specialized in exploitation films including a handful of forgotten sex comedies (JOYSTICKS), a children’s film (THE LAST UNICORN) and two cult horror films THE BOOGENS and CURTAINS. CURTAINS is the most curious of the two because it’s lay dormant for years, never seeing a decent DVD or Blu-ray release. It also had a troubled production history, taking several years to make …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: BREAKING BAD – THE FINAL SEASON

BREAKING BAD - THE FINAL SEASON Blu-ray | ©2014 Sony Pictures Entertainment

Stars: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk Suggested Retail Price:$65.99 Distributor: Sony Home Entertainment For years, critics and fans have been gushing about the brilliance of BREAKING BAD. And while it took me awhile to become a full convert, I have to say, the final eight episodes (technically the second half of Season 5) provided some of the best television last year. Creator Vince Gilligan did an amazing job of paying off EVERYTHING that he set into motion over the course of the series run. Walter White (Bryan Cranston) started off as …Read On »
