Review: 'Red' & 'Red 2' come out of retirement on 4K UHD

In 2009, Liam Neeson launched a new genre of geriatric action films with Taken and we have been better off ever since? The following year, upstart film company Summit Entertainment was still riding high on the wave of their successful Twilight film when they brought their own entry in the geriatric action genre Red to market.


Summit banked their burgeoning franchise on one-time action star supreme Bruce Willis and a gaggle... Read More



Review: 'The Last Face' falls flat

What do you get when you pair a couple of Academy Award winning actors with an Academy Award winning actor turned director? If you said, "an awards season contender that will appeal to all audiences," then you would be siding with logic. If, however, you were watching The Last Face, then you would have something different altogether.


Don't get me wrong, I love Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem has turned in... Read More



Review: Jack Bauer returns as President in 'Designated Survivor'

I suppose becoming President of the United States was the logical next step for 24 survivor Jack Bauer, but it's a survival of a completely different sort that Kiefer Sutherland discovers on Designated Survivor: The Complete First Season. Yes, I know that Jack Bauer is only a character that Kiefer Sutherland played for a bunch of high-tension seasons on the popular TV series, but Jack and Kiefer might as well... Read More

Review: Disney bestows Signature status on 'The Lion King'

You have to give it to Disney, they sure know how to create an industry of making money on the same film over and over again. Whether it is their infamous vault that seemingly gobbles up its films for years at a time to drive demand as supply drives up or their ability to pull new content from their seemingly bottomless reservoir of bonus features, one thing is certain.


Each version... Read More



Review: 'Star Wars Rebels: Season 3' basks in nostalgia

If you're like me, then you relish any opportunity to relive our Star Wars youth. Thanks to Disney's purchase of LucasFilm, we are no longer simply children at heart, but now we have almost daily new content from that galaxy far, far away.


Let's be honest though, not all of this new content is worthy to carry the Star Wars name. Granted, it's not as bad as the old Expanded Universe... Read More



Review: 'Dean' heralds in a new, exciting voice

I have to admit that while I sometimes fashion myself as a pop culture aficionado, there are moments when I am woefully clueless. Demetri Martin is the latest example of a glaring hole in my expertise, but it's better to be late to the party than not arriving at all, right?

As my wife and I sat down to watch Dean, I said that I thought she'd like it because the... Read More



Review: Nic Cage hits new low with 'Inconceivable'

Inconceivable!


No, not the phrase popularized by Wallace Shawn in the film The Princess Bride, but rather a new film out this week starring Nicolas Cage. What is truly Inconceivable though is how Nic Cage continues to land roles in films despite his spiral from the heights of Hollywood's heavyweights.


Believe it or not, it has only been 21 years since he won an Oscar for his performance in Leaving Las Vegas,... Read More



Review: 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' is 4 times better on 4K UHD

Believe it or not, I'm not going to bury the lede on this review. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is an amazing film that I thought was better than the original. If you have the ability to play 4K UHD Blu-rays, then you NEED to own this film on this format.


Well, I guess that I'll be going now. What? You want more? OK, fine.


In order to appreciate just how... Read More



Review: Is it time to kill off 'The Walking Dead' for good?

Well, I'm sure this review will cause a bit of a divisive reaction around these parts. I have been watching The Walking Dead since it premiered, but I have found that as the seasons go on, I am finding it more difficult to motivate myself to watch the show.


Seasons five and six were brutal for the most part, but I had hoped that the introduction of Jeffrey Dean Morgan as... Read More



Review: 'Ash vs Evil Dead: Season 2' is a bloody good time

I have a pretty big confession to make. Up until I reviewed Ash vs. Evil Dead: The Complete Second Season, I had not seen a single frame of anything in the Evil Dead franchise.


Not the original film. Not any of the sequels. Not a single episode of season one of Ash vs. Evil Dead.


So, why would I even attempt to watch and review Ash vs. Evil Dead: Season Two? Because... Read More



Review: McConaughey is in full high-res glory on 'Lincoln Lawyer' 4K UHD

Many decades from now, the eternal question will be, when did Matthew McConaughey's resurgence in film begin? Or not. He could simply fade away as a one-time Oscar winner never to be heard from again.


Such is the enigma wrapped in a riddle that is Matthew McConaughey. I have to put it on front street right here, I'm a fan. I love every incarnation of Matthew McConaughey there is. Romantic comedy... Read More



Review: 'Treasure Hounds' isn't original, but kids love it

If you're reading this review and over the age of 15, then let me save you some time. Unless you have children, Treasure Hounds will bore you to sleep. If you are a younger reader, I'm a bit concerned that you're reading this review on a video release date site but welcome.


There is nothing inherently wrong with Treasure Hounds per se, but as I watched it with my kids, I... Read More



Review: 'Start Your Engines' expands the Mickey franchise nicely

When Disney debuted the Mickey and the Roadster Racers property, we talked about their foresight in extending the Mickey brand beyond the early childhood demographic of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Not only was it a wise decision, but as I discovered first hand, the new path is connecting really well with boys.


My son quickly outgrew Mickey Mouse Clubhouse while my daughter enjoyed it well into her third year. But when... Read More



Review: 'The Hunter's Prayer' is familiar but forgettable

It would be easy to cast off The Hunter's Prayer as just another in a long line of Leon clones, but that would be a disservice for a film that offers a surprising level of character development. Most films in this oeuvre trade any sort of character building for more and bigger explosions, but The Hunter's Prayer strikes a good balance between the two.


The film is a polished gem that... Read More



Review: 'Warlock' finally appears on Blu-ray

We have written about the Vestron Video Collector's Series before and if you are a fan of 1980s/1990s horror, then I'm preaching to the choir. If you don't consider yourself a horror aficionado, then might I present to you a collection of films that proudly bathes itself in just about every cliché and trope of the genre from this time.


To simply dismiss the Warlock movies as horror films would be... Read More



'Pirates' sails home to 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD on October 3

Remember when Disney wasn't in the 4K UHD business? Yeah, that was Monday. In case you were sleeping earlier this week, Disney announced on Tuesday that they were going to release their first ever film on the nascent 4K UHD Blu-ray format when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 debuts on home entertainment on August 22.


Well, Disney wasted no time to reaffirm its newfound commitment to the latest home entertainment... Read More



Review: 'Smurfs' returns to its roots with 'The Lost Village'

As much as I appreciated the attempt to combine live-action and animation in the two recent Smurfs films, there was just something intrinsically wrong with seeing Smurfs interact with live actors. It's not that either film was inherently flawed per se, it's just that they lacked a bit of the mystique and panache of the original animated TV series.


I get it. Today's film environment has evolved to a place where... Read More



Review: 'Their Finest' is a most worthy effort

I know that I'm late to the party on Gemma Arterton, but if there's one film that proves that I should have noticed her sooner, it is Their Finest. There isn't any one thing about her performance that stands out, but rather the fact that she is able to carry the weight of a rather predictable plot and still make it enjoyable to watch is, in itself, amazing.


The film is... Read More



Review: Luc Besson debuts two beautiful films on 4K UHD

If there's one director that has a polarizing visual style, it's Luc Besson. He's known for his distinctive visual epics that have gotten better as technology has finally caught up to his vision. But, you either love his style or hate it, there's really not much middle ground to be had.


I have always considered myself a fan of Luc's work and have spent many hours to no avail arguing with... Read More



Disney enters the 4K UHD business with 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'

Phew, Hollywood's worst-kept secret is finally out of the bag. With today's announcement that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be coming to all physical home entertainment formats on August 22, Disney is officially in the 4K UHD Blu-ray business.


Disney was the last holdout among the "big six" studios with the newest format, but relented when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn practically coerced them to... Read More



Review: 'Song to Song' is more B-side than hit single

If there's one thing about a Terrence Malick film, you are destined to either love it or hate it. There really isn't much of a middle ground. Song to Song is the first of his films that might see people from both sides meet in the middle.


I'm normally a big Malick fan, but I was left with a rather meh feeling after watching Song to Song. There's really nothing wrong... Read More



Review: Jessica Chastain earns Oscar cred with 'Zookeeper's Wife'

After countless films detailing the atrocities of World War II in the last 70 years or so, you would think that they would run out of stories to tell. And then, something like The Zookeeper's Wife comes along. Sure, it's easy to simply dismiss it as another quasi-Schindler's List, but the power of its message isn't easily duplicated.


The true power, of course, is that both films are based on true... Read More



Review: 'The Unholy' finds new life on Blu-ray

We have written before about the Vestron Collector's Series and how it has given us a fond trip down memory lane with bulked-up versions of the niche video house's classic films. As someone who grew up on the cheese of 1980s horror films, these films have a special place in my heart and I'm giddy that they are finally being given the special feature treatment that they deserve.


You see, most... Read More



Review: Too much turbulence for 'Altitude'

If you ever found yourself thinking, 'Man, I wonder what Denise Richards is up these days?' then Altitude is the film for you. Other than that, there really isn't anything in the film that moves the needle much.


It's not often that I fail to find a single redeeming quality in a film, but this might be one of them. I mean is there anything more unbelievable than Denise Richards as... Read More



Review: 'Life' is reborn on Blu-ray

It's funny, some films are universally beloved while others are unanimously booed, but it is the rare film indeed that seemingly splits crowds right down the middle. Life is a film that is able to pull off that feat.


As a reviewer, I can understand the disparity in opinions because I went through the gauntlet of emotions while watching the film. I had pretty high expectations going into the film with... Read More



Review: 'Everybody Loves Somebody' is a cultural celebration

While certain people who shall remain nameless spend a lot of their time talking about building walls, Hollywood is finally starting to embrace the culture south of the border. For many decades, the shenanigans of Tijuana encapsulated the extent of Mexican culture in film, but that has gradually changed over the intervening years.

Part of that reason (or maybe most) is the fact that Spanish-speaking viewers are increasing in megaplexes across... Read More



Review: 'John Wick: Chapter 2' is a bloody good time

Let's face it, Keanu Reeves doesn't have much luck when it comes to sequels to his massive action films. The Matrix was iconic. The two sequels? Not so much. So, after finally seeing John Wick one drunken night on Netflix, I was desperately waiting for its sequel.

Well, desperately waiting and legitimately petrified that they would find a way to mess it up so much that it would ruin the original... Read More



Review: 'Americano' breathes fresh air into crowded subgenre

You know, I think the proliferation of animated children's movies has reached epidemic levels. I mean, as the father to a pair of kids under six years older, I'm not complaining (too much), but the sheer number of animated fare has skyrocketed in the last decade.

Think about it. We used to simply refer to them as animated films (or cartoons if you're as old as I am), but now that's... Read More



Monday Mixer: 'Wonder Woman' continues its domination

If you follow the NHL like I do, today is usually the worst day of the year. The hockey season is officially over and the long summer months officially begin. The next season doesn't officially start until October, which seems like so far away from now.

I have come to learn this morning that it's even more painful when your team loses in the Stanley Cup Final. Sure, this run was... Read More
