New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 1/23

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 »

Based in part on Maureen Orth’s nonfiction book VULGAR FAVORS, AMERICAN CRIME STORY argues that law enforcement was slow to track Cunanan due to the homophobia of the […]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 »
