WONDER WOMAN | © 2017 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. WONDER WOMAN Regardless of how you feeling about the DC Cinematic Universe, it is easy to say that getting a franchise off the ground has not been an easy thing to accomplish. Now whose fault that is a whole other story whether it is the big Whigs from Warner Bros, Zach Snyder, or a combination of the two. Luckily, they got it right with WONDER WOMAN, a true origin story that does a good job of mixing classic Diana Amazonian roots with storyline that helps move the […]Read On »

The Fate of the Furious and more Blu-ray, 4K, DVD reviews for the week of July 11, 2017

THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS | © 2017 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

Your weekly roundup of things out on video this week in all formats. THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS The FAST AND FURIOUS franchise is an interesting one in that it is a series of films that began mediocre, went belly up, then inexplicably rose from the ashes to become a huge, mega hit at the box office and with critics. It’s a crazy story and one that nearly never happens in Hollywood. TRANSFORMERS comes out bad, stays bad for a dozen movies even though people continue to go and see the films in the theater. FAST AND FURIOUS can actually […]Read On »

CHIPS highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for June 27, 2017

CHIPS | © 2017 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. CHiPS When I saw the original trailer for the CHiPS movie I thought it looked OK and it might have some funny moments but I thought about how many people actually will get the actual references to the classic television show. There’s an entire generation that has no clue about Ponch and Jon. So it already had some issues with people knowing what this was about. It showed as it didn’t perform well in the theaters. In the movie version, Ponch is an undercover federal agent investigating […]Read On »

HEAT: DIRECTOR’S DEFINITION EDITION highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for May 9, 2017

HEAT | © 2017 Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week (or perhaps a week ago). HEAT: DIRECTOR’S DEFINITIVE EDITION There are a few movies that just do it for me. RONIN is one because I love the mash-up for characters all doing shady dealings in Europe. HEAT is one of Michael Mann’s best work because it has multiple players doing a variety of heinous crimes and brings together two actors that were (at the time) the top of their game in Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. Now, how both of these actors perform today is an […]Read On »

MOANA highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for March 7, 2017

MOANA |© 2017 Disney Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. Catching up on many of the titles that I missed while being sick … plus new stuff that arrived. MOANA – Hard to go wrong with any Disney film these days. It seems they always knock it out of the park and that’s the case with MOANA, a wonderful and beautiful film about coming of age, magic and wonder. While most Disney animated titles are usually beautiful, MOANA is that much more because of the great variety of colors from the clear blue ocean to the vivid […]Read On »

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Jan. 17, 2017

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN | © 2017 Universal Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN – They don’t make movies like this much anymore in Hollywood. A straight thriller that’s R rated featuring lots of adult themes, nudity and sex. Of course, death, mystery and twists are also in the mix. In previous decades, movies like this were common like FATAL ATTRACTION, THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE, THE AFFAIR and many more. THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN is all about smoke and mirrors, building a case that someone has committed a brutal murder without having all […]Read On »

DEEPWATER HORIZON highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Jan. 10, 2017

DEEPWATER HORIZON | © 2017 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

  Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. DEEPWATER HORIZON – A pretty good action thriller about the well-publicized explosion that happened on a deep sea oil rig known as Deepwater Horizon. Led by an impressive cast including Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich and Kurt Russell, it does a good job of balancing the action with how the oil companies treat their employees and their property and how it really is about the bottom line. But it also does a good job of tackling the human spirit and how people can do incredible things and […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: RAISING CAIN

RAISING CAIN Blu-ray | ©2016 Shout! Factory

Stars: John Lithgow, Lolita Davidovich, Steven Bauer, Frances Sternhagen Writer/Director: Brian De Palma Distributor: Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $24.93 I was never a huge fan of Brian De Palma’s 1992 thriller RAISING CAIN. Bringing the director back to his early thriller roots (like DRESSED TO KILL and BLOW OUT) that were drenched deeply in Alfred Hitchcock suspense and callbacks, CAIN came off as a trainwreck of a movie mixing tones and themes but never truly satisfying. Was it supposed to be a comedy? A thriller? A black comedy? A parody of other De Palma films? While there was an […]Read On »

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 »

DVD Review: THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D

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 »
