A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS | © 2018 Universal Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS Sequels either go a few ways, either it’s a sh**show, something that is decent but doesn’t measure up to the original, in rare cases, tops the original. A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS falls in the middle here as there are indeed some funny moments but begins to take itself surprisingly way too serious toward the end. As with the original, the content is for adults only and there are plenty of moments that question the boundaries of good taste but that’s what we expect […]Read On »

THE DEUCE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON | © 2018 HBO Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. THE DEUCE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON HBO is taking on some interesting projects in light of having only a few heavy hitters left in its arsenal and THE DEUCE won’t appeal to those that are expecting the next SOPRANOS or GAME OF THRONES or DEADWOOD or TRUE BLOOD but it is an interesting series that is a throwback to a time when New York City was at its sleaziest filled with peep shows, brothels and street walkers. The series follows a number of pimps, prostitutes, the mob […]Read On »

Movie Review: ENTANGLEMENT

Entanglement | © 2018 Dark Star Pictures

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Thomas Middleditch, Jess Weixler, Diana Bang, Johannah Newmarch, Marilyn Norry Writer: Jason Filiatraut Director: Jason James Distributor: Dark Star Pictures Release Date: February 9, 2018 ENTANGLEMENT starts out as one of those low-budget movies with a few name actors that centers around a middle-class, unemployed white guy going through age-thirty-life crisis. There’s nothing inherently wrong with this ever-growing genre, but it takes some ingenuity to stand out in it. ENTANGLEMENT becomes a kind of rom-com, then something else, with a plot twist at the two-thirds mark, but it doesn’t stray far from that initial sensibility. The […]Read On »

PETER RABBIT | © 2018 Columbia/Sony Animation

Rating: PG Stars: Rose Byrne, Domnhall Gleeson, James Corden (voice) Writers: Rob Lieber and Will Gluck, based on the writings and artwork of Beatrix Potter Director: Will Gluck Distributor: Columbia/Sony Animation Release Date: February 9, 2018 PETER RABBIT is set in the present, but it manages to still preserve some of the look of the Beatrix Potter illustrations that inspired it. As to Potter’s stories, there are indeed rabbits named Peter, Flopsy, Mopsy and more, there’s a hedgehog called Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and there’s a cranky Mr. McGregor – two of them, in fact – determined to keep the woodland wildlife […]Read On »

GEOSTORM | © 2018 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. GEOSTORM GEOSTORM is universally panned as being down-right awful because of its nonsensical plot and CGI extravaganza that rivals JUPITER ASCENDING. More than that, it is downright preachy in its calls that pretty darn soon the Earth is gonna start hating humans and wiping them off the planet with a series of catastrophic disasters that can’t be stopped. Now, don’t get me wrong when I say this that yes it is nonsensical, yes it is preachy and yes it is a CGI fest, however, maybe because my […]Read On »

BLADE RUNNER 2049 | © 2018 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. BLADE RUNNER 2049 So, I really liked this. I know that it was very mixed between people who thought it was too long or too convoluted or too preachy. But I thought I was as best of a follow up to a movie that is 35 years old as it is highly entertaining and expands upon the whole BLADE RUNNER universe. It also has concrete ties to the original film beyond just bringing back Harrison Ford as Dekker. While he plays a role that is extremely important […]Read On »
