Holiday (1938)Sometimes it takes meeting the wrong person to finally get to the right person.  That’s one of the territories in Holiday, an often overlooked romantic comedy from 1938 which deals with clashing values and what it means to truly live as pie-in-the-sky dreamers mix drinks with the aristocrats  ...

Labyrinth 35th Anniversary Edition - 4K

“Things are not always what they seem in this place.” Upon its original theatrical release in 1986, Jim Henson’s final directorial feature, Labyrinth, was not able to find its audience as it flopped in the U.S Box office and received mixed reviews among critics of the time. But fortunately thanks to home ...

Ghost Breakers (1940)It’s the simplest twist of fates as Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard return to do battle with the supernatural in The Ghost Breakers!  Voodoo, ghosts, and island-bound zombies!  Add in a criminally underrated performance from Willie Best and you have the makings of another REEL CLASSIC! ...

Back to the Future: The Ultimate TrilogyThe product of two A-list protégés (at the time) floundering in their careers; a script deemed too dirty by Disney, and not dirty enough by other studios (this was era of sex comedies). Back to the Future, despite being one of the tightest screenplays ever written (then and now) just could not ...

The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard

The new Michael Bryce is now part of a royally messed up family. But do we care? We probably didn’t need a sequel to 2017’s misfire buddy cop movie, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, but we got one anyway.  Thing is, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is more of the same so - and this is the good news (I guess) - if you liked ...

The Cat and the Canary (1939)Swamp gators (with their mouths taped shut as evidenced by this crisp 4K handling!), dead lawyers, and mighty sums of money!  Such frightful delights await those that can stay sane in the Norman clan.  ...

The AssistantI’ll say this about The Assistant: it’ll probably make you appreciate your own boss. That person is almost guaranteed to be better than the nameless tyrant dominating The Assistant. The movie depicts one long and ordinary day in the life of Jane (Julia Garner), a twenty something wannabe film ...

The Dead Zone: Collector's Edition

“And the lamplight streaming shows his shadow on the floor.” Some say this is David Cronenberg’s best film.  While I may not necessarily agree with that suggestion, I have to agree - and this is wholeheartedly - that, The Dead Zone, just might be one of the best Stephen King adaptations ...

The Hunt (2019)

What if they made a movie and nobody came? That was the fear when the horror satire The Hunt was scheduled for release last fall before being delayed by a series of unfortunate events. First, it was the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings. Then a tweet about the film from our ...

Mimic: The Director’s CutThere are few genre fans in the world that don’t know the name Guillermo del Toro, but in 1997 he was still a relatively unknown entity to the western world. The Spanish director was hired by the Weinsteins to helm what was originally conceived as a three part short film project, quickly morphed ...

Becky (2020)While browsing through your favorite streaming service last week, you probably flipped past the title card for the little-known Canadian thriller called Becky. Big mistake. Need convincing? It stars Kevin James as a swastika-tattooed neo-Nazi murderer. Yes, that Kevin James ...

Eight Legged Freaks (2002)

Spiders the size of SUVs in a mining town full of crazy characters?  Count me in!   Eight Legged Freaks, starring David Arquette, Kari Wuhrer, Scott Terra, Scarlett Johansson, and Doug E. Doug, finally arrives on blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory.  For me, this B-grade horror ...

Knives OutKnives Out (2019) is a clever murder mystery from writer and director Rian Johnson, the best quality of which is its awesome ensemble cast: Christopher Plummer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon and more. Everyone seems to enjoy their juicy  ...

House of Wax: Collector's Edition

He’s really being the monster today!  Why can’t he be more like his brother? With those two sentences, audiences are immediately thrust into the chaos that is 2005’s House of Wax.  That opening, in which two bent out of shape parents struggle with their wild twin sons ...

Ad AstraFilms of the ilk of last year’s Ad Astra are always a quandary for me to write about. With the output of most of Hollywood’s efforts being what some might sarcastically call formulaic and digestible, it is both a blessing and a curse when something is offered to buck the trend. James Gray’s science  ...
