deep breath

Everyone is skeptical when a new Doctor takes over but Capaldi won me over right from the get go.

Blu-ray Review “The Possession of Michael King”

possession

Worth a rent if you got nothing else to do this week

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”

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

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”

Blu-ray Review “Rage”

rage

Blu-ray Review “Need for Speed”

needforspeed

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.

If you love action films and unbelievable fighting scenes and stunts…do not miss this film.
