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 »

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 »
