Blu-ray Review: NORM OF THE NORTH

NORM OF THE NORTH | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

  Outside of Disney, animated films are either hit or miss when it comes delivering something you as a parent can feel good about letting your children watch. While NORM OF THE NORTH isn’t necessarily a bad movie for kids. The number of pee and fart jokes that are contained within leave a lot to be desired when it comes to letting kids watch what you hope will be a decent animated flick. The story centers on Norm, a polar bear, who learns that humans are moving into his home in the vastness of the Arctic. He doesn’t really think […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE REVENANT

THE REVENANT | © 2016 Fox Home Entertainment

  THE REVENANT is a pretty amazing film from a variety of perspectives. Not only does it capture the beauty of the American Pacific Northwest during winter in the 1820s where pelters are encroaching on Native American territory, but it also captures the harsh and brutality of the wilderness and the danger involved in such endeavors. From the opening sequence that sees the Americans being attacked by a horde of Native Americans in one continuous brutal scene to the escape but not out of hot water yet as the Indians travel to kill the remaining men. Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio), […]Read On »

DVD Review: THE HOARDER

THE HOARDER | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

  Don’t worry, THE HOARDER isn’t a branch off one of those television shows where it shows people with real problems gathering a ton of needless junk and unable to get rid of everything until their houses are sometimes filled to the brim with crap. Instead the hoarding in question here has to do with people. Gathering people as pets and keeping them isolated in the basement of a fairly sophisticated public storage enterprise. Mischa Barton (from THE OC) and Robert Knepper (long a fan favorite as the vile T-Bag on PRISON BREAK) star in this horror flick about a […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: EXPOSED

EXPOSED | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

Apparently EXPOSED actually made it to theaters, which after watching it is a bit of a joke to itself. While it may not have made it to the screens in the U.S., it made it to the U.K. where it made $122. You read that right. $122. It could be a lack of promotion, I don’t remember seeing anything about it promoted. Could also be because it sucks on so many levels, no one in their right mind would pay money for it. There are essentially two plotlines going on simultaneously. The first deals with Keanu Reeves character trying to […]Read On »

Movie/VoD Review: HARBINGER DOWN

HARBINGER DOWN | © 2015 Vertical Entertainment

Cast: Lance Henriksen, Camille Balsamo, Matt Winston, Giovonnie Samuels, Winston James Francis, Mick Ignis, Michael Estime Writer: Alec Gillis Director: Alec Gillis Distributor: Vertical Entertainment Release Date: August 7, 2015 HARBINGER DOWN is a pretty blatant rip-off of the John Carpenter classic THE THING. However, the people who made the film – on the back of a successful Kickstarter campaign combined with funds from their own pockets – make clear that’s what they were going for in a homage to not just THE THING but also other science fiction monster movies from the 80s including LEVIATHAN and even a bit […]Read On »

CD Review: ON THE WATERFRONT soundtrack

ON THE WATERFRONT soundtrack | ©2015 Intrada Records

There are composers like Philip Glass (CANDYMAN) who start out in the concert hall, and go onto blaze impressive new careers in Hollywood. Then there are those like Andre Previn (ELMER GANTRY), who prolifically begin in tinsel town, only to leave it completely behind. And then there are such maestros as John Corigliano (ALTERED STATES), who briefly tread in Hollywood while making sure not to quit their day jobs, leaving behind a precious few soundtracks that show the dazzling movie career that could have been. On that note, perhaps no conductor could have been a Hollywood contender like Leonard Bernstein, […]Read On »

Movie/VoD Review: THE WALKING DECEASED

THE WALKING DECEASED | © 2015 Arc Entertainment

Cast: Dave Sheridan, Joey Oglesby, Tim Olgetree, Sophia Taylor Ali, Danielle Garcia, Mason Dakota Galyon, Troy Olgetree Writer: Tim Ogletree Director: Scott Dow Distributor: Arc Entertainment Rating: Not Rated Movie parodies used to be something of a rarity. And then they were not based on current pop culture but on a genre of cinema. AIRPLANE was not based on a slew of shows about airplanes but rather the dramas and action flicks of the time with a unique storyline and comedic slapstick. Parodies remained a rare thing in Hollywood until the SCARY MOVIE franchise emerged and made a ton of […]Read On »

Movie/VoD Review: AVENGED

AVENGED | © 2015 Uncork'd Entertainment

Cast: Amanda Adrienne, Tom Ardavany, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Brionne Davis, Ed Fletcher, Jason Gurvitz Writer: Michael S. Ojeda Director: Michael S. Ojeda Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Rating: Not Rated AVENGED is like a supernatural I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, if that film has a deaf woman that actually dies and begins to rot on her way to killing the men that did her wrong. Oh and if they added a contrived romance plotline that never really takes off during the course of the movie. Zoe (Amanda Adrienne), a deaf girl with a boyfriend that lives far away, decides to go visit […]Read On »
