Pulp Fiction 4K Review
John Travolta made his acting debut when he was 16 years old. Five years later, he was starring in a hit television show, Welcome Back Kotter, and a few years after that he became a major movie star when he danced his way through Saturday Night Fever. Over the next fifteen-plus years, his film projects were hit and miss, and his career seemed to be on a downslope. Then in 1994 up and c...

The Good House Blu-ray Review
Small Town, USA - from little farming communities set in the heartlands of America to the quaint, sleepy, seaside villages situated in the north on either coast of the country, they weave a common thread through the fabric of society that is a way of life for the residents. With populations typically under 7000 people, everyone seems to know everyone else and they all tend to be involved in ...

Violent Night Theatrical Review
There are certain holidays that go hand in hand with the entertainment industry but no other single holiday gets as much promotion as Christmas. One could probably list a few hundred songs dedicated to Christmas or some aspect of it and every year, right around Thanksgiving, the classic, Christmas-themed movies start appearing on television. From serious endeavors like Miracle on 34th ...

Darby and The Dead Streaming Review
Back in 1999 writer/director, M.Night Shyamalan introduced audiences to his psychological thriller The Sixth Sense. Starring Bruce Willis (Die Hard) and Haley Joel Osment (Pay It Forward), the film revolved around a boy who could see and communicate with the dead, and like all Shyamalan movies, there is a surprise twist no one saw coming. Imagine over twenty years later 20th Century St...

Willow Streaming Review
When looking back on movies from the 1980s, besides the teenage angst films, there was a culture and a wanting for fantasy/adventure films. From Legend to The NeverEnding Story and The Dark Crystal to Labyrinth, they all seemed to have the same type of feel, look and appeal that, at the time, drew audiences to the theaters. Many have even become “cult” classics and still have large fol...

Halo Blu-ray Review
I don’t think people give enough credit to the first Halo game. It truly was a game-changer in every sense of the word. Not only were the graphics and combat system next-gen, but the iconic Master Chief inspired tons of gamers more than any other playable protagonist, before it. This wasn’t merely another first-person shooter, Halo defined a gaming generation, inspired knock-offs as well as sequel...

Doom Patrol Blu-ray Review
From the very first season of Doom Patrol I said they were the “misfit toys” of the DC Universe and, as season three is set to be released on Blu-ray, there is still no more accurate statement to describe this unlikely group of supernatural beings. They are a ragtag group who are seemingly, unintentionally, doing good for others while, selfishly, trying to help themselves. They are also one ...

The Menu Theatrical Review
When one goes out to a fancy restaurant generally one expects delicious, possibly exotic food. One can also expect an expensive bill. However, along with those, one doesn’t often expect a lesson in morality nor a life-threatening experience - well, unless one decides to order fugu sushi (puffer/blowfish fish). In Searchlight Pictures latest release, The Menu, the elite and ...

Pearl Blu-ray Review
Horror movies run the gambit with sub-genres ranging from gruesome slasher films to psychological thrillers and supernatural entities to comedic horror. Regardless of how the bodies manage to pile up, horror films have a built-in audience whether or not they are any good and with, at least, two horror movies premiering each month, there are plenty to choose from each year. This past Ma...

Earth Girls Are Easy Blu-ray Review
Earth Girls Are Easy (EGAE) is a difficult film to pin down. A romantic comedy, a musical, a 1950’s-inspired, schlocky Sci-Fi. It is all of these things rolled into one. At the time it was released I did not like this movie, in fact, I rented it and remember barely getting through it. I do remember loving Julie Brown’s Character Candy Pink (Clueless), and thought she was the highlight of the...

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 4K Review
As we put away our Halloween decorations and we roll into November, we start to prepare our turkeys, mashed potatoes, and gravy. Once that meal is over and everyone is done heading to the stores on the hunt for the perfect bargains, it is time to grab some eggnog, put on your coziest pajamas and sit down with the family to watch classic holiday movies. Of course, there are plenty of fi...

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Theatrical Review
The Marvel Cinematic Universe began phase one fourteen years ago with Robert Downey, Jr. (Sherlock Holmes) in Iron Man. One decade and at least a dozen-plus films later, audiences were introduced to Black Panther portrayed by Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom). Four years later, the world was shocked to find out that Boseman silently suffered and ultimately succumbed to cancer...

Casablanca 4K Review
One of the most famous, misquoted movie lines, besides “Luke, I am your father” from The Empire Strike Back, is “Play it again, Sam” from Casablanca. The line, in reference to the love song, As Time Goes By, was said by Humphrey Bogart’s (The African Queen) character, Rick Baines, to his employee, Sam (Dooley Wilson; Stormy Weather), telling him to pla...

The Banshees of Inisherin Theatrical Review
In 2008, actors Colin Farrell (Seven Psychopaths) and Brendan Gleason (The Harry Potter Series) starred in a movie together called In Bruges and their easy rapport made the audience feel as if their characters were old friends. When it came time for director Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) to cast the roles in his new film, The Banshees of Inisherin, Gleason and F...

Till Theatrical Review
Not so long ago in this country, there was a time when minorities were treated like dirt. Less than seventy-five years ago segregation was the norm and African-Americans were considered to be less than second-class citizens. During this period, Mamie Till (Danielle Deadwyler; The Devil to Pay) and her son Emmett (Jalyn Hall; The House with a Clock in Its Walls) lived in Chicago where, ...
