Paramount Presents continues to release some great films from the Paramount vault. Breakdown is my favorite film to be released as of yet. Kurt Russell is fantastic as the lead in this taut thriller. I remember first seeing this film in theaters. My friends and I loved it. I’m a

Best Sellers bring together Michael Caine and Aubry Plaza for a road trip comedy with a dash of heart. The film does a few things right, it has two lead actors that are well cast and they play very well off each other and it keeps the runtime under 100 minutes.  Unfortunately,

I watched F9 today and am sad to report it was my least favorite film in the franchise. If you thought the franchise jumped the shark in the last movie, then be prepared. Four words, Pontiac Fiero in space. There is one action scene during the final act that is

In a world filled with uncertainty and fear, it is really important to laugh. Writing and directing husband and wife duo Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly understand this sentiment and deliver a delightfully silly and ostentatious comedy. The film works on multiple levels, but above all is laughter. Touting an

Kino Lorber continues to release awesome Blu-rays with some great special features. Masquerade is no exception. Meg Tilly and Rob Lowe star in this thriller set in the world of socialites and sailing boats. Money is not the main concern of most of the characters. Everyone can relate to love,

Sexy Furby is by far the most unique film that I’ve seen in a long time.  Sexy Furby had its world premiere at the 25th Annual Fantasia International Film Fest. This short is a comedy with a slight mix of horror. Many times I found my eyes building out of

I’m not surprised by how much I enjoyed Pig. I had to watch this so much that when my screener link did not work I bought the movie digitally. Pig is written and directed Michael Sarnoski by and stars Nicolas Cage, Alex Wolff, and Alan Arkin. Set in the Pacific

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

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

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.

Half Baked is arriving on Blu-ray on June 22. I recently had the chance to watch this Blu with the directors commentary on. If you’ve seen a movie multiple times, I can’t recommend watching the film with audio commentary and check out the other special features. Directed by Tamra Davis,

I remember watching Career Opportunities in theaters during its initial theatrical run. While the initial release didn’t make a huge splash, Career Opportunities is a true classic that I always stop and watch when I see it playing. Directed by Bryan Gordon, Career Opportunities stars Jennifer Connelly, Frank Whaley, Dermot
