New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 2/13

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 »

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 »

New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 9/17

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Blu-ray Review: GODS OF EGYPT

GODS OF EGYPT | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

Cast: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gerard Butler, Chadwick Boseman, Emma Booth, Rachael Black, Elodie Yung, Brenton Thwaites, Courtney Eaton Writers: Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless Director: Alex Proyas Distributor: Lionsgate Home Entertainment My experience with GODS OF EGYPT differs quite a bit from the lambasting it has taken from the critics when it first arrived in theaters, but I may have those same critics to thank for it. I had such extremely low expectations going in and that may have contributed to actually enjoying an amazingly over-the-top CG laden film that fictionalizes the powerful deities place among mortals. When I first saw the […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE FINEST HOURS

THE FINEST HOURS | © 2016 Disney Home Video

Interesting that Disney has done something that doesn’t involve their fairy tale franchise, Marvel or LucasFilm. Not often we see a standalone movie from the massive corporation that doesn’t have any ties to the stuff that makes it the big bucks. But with THE FINEST HOURS we have an action film based on true events about the Coast Guard saving a merchant sea vessel after it gets split in half and those that survive are restlessly keeping it afloat. The visuals are pretty cool because how the hell does a boat stay floating after it has been sliced literally in […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: POINT BREAK

POINT BREAK | © 2016 Warner Home Video

This should probably be called X-GAMES: THE MOVIE because we get just about every extreme sport rolled into one film in POINT BREAK. I will say, however, that if you are going to do a remake or re-imagining or whatever you’d like to call it, this is the way to go. The original POINT BREAK focused on a group of bank robbers that also happened to be surfers and an FBI guy gains the group’s trust to bring them down from the inside. The same plotline is here but instead of surfers, they are all extreme sports people from snowboarding, […]Read On »
