devilsdoor

The score in this film is also quite amazing, which really aids the scares in the film to actually be scary. Go figure right? A horror film that is actually scary.

TheDiscoverers-poster-460x681

“The Discoverers” is a dime store movie that I assume indie admirers will gobble up, but I found myself counting down the minutes until it expired

Blu-ray Review “Bitten: The Complete First Season”

bitten

You know when you watch a show and you know right away that you are either going to love it or hate it. “Bitten” fell into the latter category from the very first episode.

Film Review “The November Man”

the-november-man-poster

The direction by screen veteran Donaldson is strong but, like the plot, very formulaic: gun fight, car chase, take a break and repeat

LandHo-PosterFinal

Even with Iceland as the setting for this story, the new film “Land Ho!” is full of warmth

DVD Review “Killer Mermaid”

The film is called “Killer Mermaid” but for the first hour all the “killing” is done by some grizzy old man and there is no sight of any mermaid until about 65 minutes in.

Film Review “Calvary”

Calvary_movieposter

Gleeson’s performance is the only believable one, and even he didn’t seem to be bringing his A-game

Blu-ray Review “Toy Story of Terror!”

toystoryterror

The film is a little scary but definitely another great installment in this franchise

Blu-ray Review “Rampage: Capital Punishment”

rampage2

“Rampage: Capital Punishment”, which is a decent follow-up to the first film. It is more crazy yet at the same time more subdued

Blu-ray Review “Without Warning”

withoutwarning

This film is not the greatest entry to come out the 80’s. The aliens looks laughable but for the budget they had in the film, it is acceptable

Blu-ray Review “Motel Hell”

motelhell

The film is still good for a few laughs and is quite of fun but not really one of my favorites.

Blu-ray Review “Only Lovers Left Alive”

onlylovers

Definitely a visual trip with some great underground music and amazing performances from Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston

DVD Review “Almost Human: The Complete Series”

AlmostHuman_Complete

The cast is great and it had a cool idea but was rather poorly executed

DVD Review “Gilligan’s Planet: The Complete Series”

gilligans

Not the greatest of the bunch of cartoons that were born in the 80’s. If you are a hardcore fan of “Gilligan’s Island” and remember this show, it might be worth picking up

Film Review “Frank”

Frank_poster

A bizarre gem of a film that’s worth seeking out especially for Fassbender’s masked performance.

Film Review “The Giver”

the-giver-07

If you’re looking for a young adult movie filled with young love and unnecessary action sequences wobbling towards the finish line, this is for you. Otherwise, unwind tonight and read the book

Blu-ray Review “Divergent”

divergent

“Divergent” just takes way too long to get started and then by the time it gets some speed, it stalls out quickly.

Blu-ray Review “Rage”

rage

Violent as hell, delivers us another crazy performance from Cage and packs a solid surprise ending

Film Review “The Hundred-Foot Journey”

the-hundred-foot-journey-new-trailer-poster-and-stills

Obvious dramedy clichés aside, it’s still very heartfelt with its material…

Blu-ray Review “Need for Speed”

What did film does have is an great cast…and some amazing stunt driving work…other than that this runs out of gas very quickly.

Did one of the directors for “Movie 43” and writer for both live-action “Scooby Doo” movies just create the best Marvel movie? Yes. Yes he did.

cap-iron

I am not 100% sold on this style of animation since it feels a little cheap and not as polished as you would expect from Marvel but it is still a decent film

The film succeeds as well as it does thanks to the work of Johannson

Blu-ray Review “Dom Hemingway”
