I have to say that I was never a fan of the GI JOE films. I’ve yet to watch Snake Eyes. These films arrive on 4K4K this week. The second film looks great, but they are very skimpy on special features. I’m sad to say that Rise of Cobra does

Scream Factory has done it again. The Dead Zone is a must-own for fans of Cronenberg, King, and of course Christopher Walken. I remember watching this when I was younger and being terrified. Mainly because of the ice skating portion. A man wakes up from a coma, only to realize

Almost Famous is available tomorrow in a 4K Steelbook which is a thing of beauty. I’ve been a fan of steelbook releases lately. There’s just something satisfying about the sound of the case clicking and the sturdiness of the case. Almost Famous has a nice matte finish with beautiful artwork

House of Wax Movie Review

I went into this movie relatively blind, aside from the fact that I had a sense it would be about wax. Unfortunately, I was very unimpressed with the film itself. I felt that the first portion of the film was excruciatingly long, and without reason. If there is a major

It is always difficult for me to say that something is the “Best”, but I think 48 HR.S is a legitimate contender. One thing that gives this film a lead is the Eddie Murphy factor. Of course, most people think that Beverly Hills Cop is Murphy’s best film from this

Werewolves Within, from IFC Films, is my favorite horror-comedy, and perhaps even my favorite video game adaptation. This film had my interest from the release of the trailer. Sometimes you start watching a movie and a lightbulb clicks in your head, yes this movie is for me. It’s pretty cool

I got the Indiana Jones 4K Collection just in time. My father-in-law arrived in town this week and we watched Raiders of the Lost Ark. He then said that he didn’t want to watch the “one with the kids” because he didn’t like it. This sparked a conversation about this

Diversity has been a major issue in the comic book world for years. It’s an interesting sort of phenomenon, considering that most comics reflect what’s going on in the world from a political and sociological standpoint. Unfortunately, racial and gender stereotypes within comic books haven’t changed much over the years.

SUPER 8 looks super awesome (lame, but I had to) in 4K! I remember watching this when I wrote for GeekTyrant and interviewed some of the cast. I loved it then and love it now. There were so many sounds and elements of the film that I had never noticed

Documentaries are meant to give viewers in-depth looks at a specific situation, location, or person. They aren’t scripted, and they focus on bringing specific issues to light that you may not know about otherwise. Because one of the biggest purposes of a documentary is to educate, watching any of them

When I saw that My Fair Lady, I knew that I had to review it. This film will always have a special place in my heart. My parents were huge fan of musicals. I remember watching TCM with my parents and my dad was able to say the lines verbatim.
