LIGHTS OUT | © 2016 Warner Bros

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, Maria Bello, Alexander DiPersia, Alicia Vela-Bailey, Andi Osho, Billy Burke Writer: Eric Heiserrer, story by David F. Sandberg Director: David F. Sandberg Distributor: Warner Bros./New Line Cinema Release Date: July 22, 2016 Here’s a nice surprise: LIGHTS OUT, a summer horror movie that has consistent and well-earned scares, a modestly novel premise and good story logic. It’s that relative rarity that doesn’t even suffer from its PG-13 rating – the gore is just enough to be jolting, but not so pervasive that it gets an R or holds up the pacing. In LIGHTS […]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 »

Rating: R Stars: Joel Edgerton, Felicity Price, Teresa Palmer, Antony Starr Writers: Kieran Darcy-Smith & Felicity Price Director: Kieran Darcy-Smith Distributor: Entertainment One Release Date: June 7, 2013 WISH YOU WERE HERE is one of those tightly-crafted thrillers where scenes that seem innocuous from one angle are later shown to have an entirely different significance when viewed through another lens, even if the characters within that scene don’t understand what’s been set in motion. At the outset, we see Dave Flannery (Joel Edgerton), alone and looking devastated, wandering in a field. It looks like something terrible has happened, and it […]Read On »
