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 »

JASON BOURNE highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Dec. 6, 2016

JASON BOURNE | © 2016 Universal Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. JASON BOURNE in 4K– So here’s the thing about this installment of JASON BOURNE, it isn’t the best of the franchise for sure. But definitely beats the pants of the previous movie that did not feature Matt Damon. Luckily, the action and thrill of the previous movies are still here but what’s missing is the espionage factor as there are only so many secrets that are left to reveal. Pretty much everything has been revealed (and revealed again) in all the other movies. Still, there is a […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: RABID Collector’s Edition

RABID Collector's Edition Blu-ray | ©2016 Shout! Factory

Stars: Marilyn Chambers, Joe Silver, Howard Ryshpan, Patricia Gage, Susan Roman, Frank Moore Writer/Director: David Cronenberg Distributor: Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $24.93 While David Cronenberg’s first two films 1975’s SHIVERS (aka THEY CAME FROM WITHIN) and 1977’s RABID showcased his early fascination with body horror and subverting the traditional horror genre, it wasn’t until 1979’s THE BROOD where his ideas and filmmaking skills really began to gel in a cohesive fashion, improving by leaps and bounds with his each subsequent film. However, there’s tons to admire with both SHIVERS and RABID, and now, thanks to Shout! Factory, we finally […]Read On »

GAME OF THRONES: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Nov. 15, 2016

GAME OF THRONES: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON | © 2016 HBO Home Video

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 »

LIGHTS OUT highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Oct. 25, 2016

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 »

ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Oct. 18, 2016

ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS | © 2016 Disney Home Video

  Movies: ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS – The sequel to Disney’s original ALICE live action movie is an interesting take on the myth of the classic tale. While it received so-so reviews from critics and fans were a bit disinterested in the whole film (read: it flopped at the box office), it does a good job of bringing back the elements of the first movie that made it good with a strong cast (Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska and, of course, Johnny Depp) and an interesting story about Alice (Wasikowska) returning to Neverland and once again battling […]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 »

WARCRAFT highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Sept. 27, 2016

WARCRAFT | © 2016 Universal Home Entertainment

  Movies: WARCRAFT – When a movie gets so universally panned by critics and fans alike, you go into it with very low expectations. That probably helped in my viewing of WARCRAFT because shockingly I actually found it not half bad. Yeah, the plot is basic and rambling with dialog and nonsensical elements along with literally nothing being explained other than bad orcs, good humans. But the special effects, which looked atrocious in the trailers, holds up alright and the action sequences are pretty good and at times brutal. But something had to make this become the highest grossing video […]Read On »
