Review: THE EQUALIZER 2 Fails to Equal the Original Film

Wrested away from the hazy hallowed (now hollow) halls of 1980’s television memory, and reimagined for the big screen by filmmaker Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Magnificent Seven) and superstar Denzel Washington, The Equalizer saga continues to unfold in this...

Blu-ray Review: IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS Foams With Glory

Scream Factory's love affair with John Carpenter continues with this Blu-ray relase of In the Mouth of Madness. If you're a Carpenter fan of any kind, this one is an essential addition to your collection. The film has never looked...

Blu-ray Review: MEMOIRS OF AN INVISIBLE MAN

John Carpenter -- Halloween, The Thing, In the Mouth of Madness -- is a legend within horror filmmaker circles, with an undeniable reach that has extended beyond the black-clad hordes. In addition to his terrifying titles, he did some more mainstream films. Today, we're going...

Review: SIBERIA Stays Out in the Cold

Crime thrillers seem to have found new life in recent years, not least due to VOD and streaming channels needing content. Films such as I Don't Feel At Home in This World Anymore, Logan Lucky, Nightcrawler, and Small Crimes may...

Review: SKYSCRAPER, You're Not Going to Believe This

"Made it, Ma! Top of the world!" Oh, if only Skyscraper displayed 1/10 of the furious intensity that consumed James Cagney in White Heat! But that's a ridiculous thought, almost as ridiculous as Skyscraper itself, which director Rawson Marshall Thurber...

Review: SHARP OBJECTS Begins Its Incision

With a series that practically bills itself as being chock full of surprises, probably the least surprising thing one can say is that Amy Adams, who is pretty much great in everything, is also great in Sharp Objects. In fact,...

Review: SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO, A Better Day

Not so long ago, when one considered which recent films might parlay nicely into a franchise, Sicario probably didn’t spring to mind.  Fortunately, the film’s writer, Taylor Sheridan, was not of this persuasion.   Denis Villeneuve’s 2015 original remains an...

Review: ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, Fun With Sizes in a Superhero Sequel

Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas star in a cookie-cutter Marvel adventure.

Review: JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM Goes Places Earlier Films Fear To Tread

For the past quarter century, the Jurassic Park films have been synonymous with summer blockbuster fare. Based on Michael Crichton's novel (itself an inferior re-working of his own Westworld) the first film in the franchise set the world alight in...

Blu-ray Review: Frank Borzage's MOONRISE Glows for Criterion

Director Frank Borzage was never one to wallow in the darkness. He made quality dramas, his work spanning from the silent era into the  early 1960s. Although one of the major filmmakers in his earlier career, we don’t hear all...

Review: TAG Isn't It

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we get old because we stop playing.” That is the quote that validates five childhood friends to sustain a high-stakes, no-holds-barred game of tag for a lifetime. George Bernard Shaw originally said...

Review: INCREDIBLES 2, Brad Bird Does it Again, Another Excellent Family Superhero Film!

Incredibles 2 picks up from the moment The Underminer makes his appearance at the end of the first film. Yet, failing to stop The Underminer from committing his crime the Parrs and all superheroes are under even more scrutiny than...

Review: HOTEL ARTEMIS, A Fun Bit Of Sci-Fi Action To Pass The Time

It's been an interesting summer for sci-fi pulp fiction. With Leigh Whannel's Upgrade taking critics by storm, and now Drew Pearce's Hotel Artemis hitting cinemas this weekend, there's a wealth of futuristic action for moviegoers to choose from. While the...

Blu-ray Review: NIGHT OF THE LEPUS is Best for Little Bunnies

Stuart Whitman (Eaten Alive) and Janet Leigh (Psycho) star as a scientist couple studying insects in Arizona. It turns out that there's an infestation of wild rabbits wrecking havoc on everything, and they're asked to help. They figure out a...

Review: HEREDITARY, The Haunted House That We Call Home

Ari Aster's Hereditary is an emotionally devastating family thriller, a terrifying supernatural mystery, and one hell of a complex horror film. This is the kind of film that builds tension for every one of its one-hundred-twenty-seven minutes, and when that...

Review: OCEAN'S 8, Thieves Like Us, Sorta

Upon its release in December 2001, Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven felt like a salve upon a troubled nation's open wounds. Coming on the heels of Soderbergh's dazzling dramatic duo of the previous year (Erin Brockovich and Traffic), his caper flick...

Review: SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, A Mixed Shot

Han lives an Oliver Twist-like existence on Corellia 8, stealing and scavenging for a local ganglord to eke out a meager existence. Together with love interest Qi'ra, he yearns for a way to get off planet and start a new...

Blu-ray Review: CYBORG Kicks its Way Home

Shout Factory's new release of Cannon Films' Cyborg is likely the best the film has ever looked since it's initial theatrical release. As a fan of most of Cannon's canon, I'm sad to say that 1989's Cyborg didn't do it for me, story...

Review: DEADPOOL 2, Satirical Lunacy Cranked To 11

Expectations were pretty low for Deadpool 2. What could have easily been conceived as a cash-cow on Marvel's part, merely another cog in the exhaustive line-up of films that have been and are to come, is instead a self contained...

Review: Something Lurks in the Waters Off ISLAND ZERO

Director Josh Gerritsen’s Island Zero wears its influences proudly on its sleeves, and they become readily apparent as soon as you read the synopsis. The story of an isolated fishing community being attacked by Something Horrible that comes out of...
