Security Review

July 16, 2018 // 0 Comments

‘Security’ is a movie that aims low and stays on target. Antonio Banderas, far removed from his days as the guitar case gunslinger in Desperado, plays a two dimensional archetype—a former soldier, struggling to find work to see his family who are forced to live two states away. The soldier finds work as an overnight security guard in a mall, [...]

Allan Ungar, director and writer of Gridlocked and Tapped Out, has posted a short 14-minute Uncharted fan film he wrote and directed to his YouTube channel. The film stars Nathan Fillion as Nathan Drake, giving Fillion a role he’s wanted to play and fans of the game a glimpse at the guy many wanted to see play Drake on a big screen. Check it [...]

The Top 5 Audrey Hepburn Films

February 16, 2018 // 0 Comments

This has been a feature idea I’ve been kicking around for a while, and the only constant with it has been the subject for the first one. Audrey Hepburn had a film career that spanned five decades and consisted of 27 films. She was not only extremely talented and beautifully, but far more importantly she was a humble and dignified class act who [...]

The Fate of the Furious Blu-ray Review

July 11, 2017 // 0 Comments

Fate of the Furious, the eighth entry in the popular Fast and the Furious franchise, releases on Blu-ray today in the form of a combo pack. You can pick it up for $20 on Amazon, and that’ll get you the Blu-ray, DVD, and two Digital HD versions of the film (the theatrical cut and the extended director’s cut that is only available [...]

Shocker Review

October 31, 2015 // 0 Comments

This may surprise some people, but Shocker is one of my all time favorite movies from the late great Wes Craven. I first got hooked on it during late night showings on basic cable back when I was growing up. The story is a little bit like Nightmare On Elm Street, in fact you might even call it a rip-off (but if anyone’s allowed to ripoff that [...]

Dracula Untold Review

October 30, 2015 // 0 Comments

There may have been a very good reason this Dracula’s story was untold. It’s just a shame it didn’t remain that way. This movie should really have been titled Edward Untold as it is just an obvious attempt to take an established character and turn him into a swooning icon for the twenty-something audience who grew up with the Twilight [...]

Trick r’ Treat Review

October 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

In Halloween 3, John Carpenter wanted to turn the Halloween franchise into a kind of Twilight Zone series of interconnected but unrelated horror stories that just happened to fall on Halloween. Unfortunately, this was after the Michael Myers character had already taken a deep hold over the series. I think Trick R’ Treat however, is exactly [...]

Bone Tomahawk Review

October 28, 2015 // 0 Comments

This is a hell of a year for Kurt Russel fans. Not having done a western of any kind since Tombstone, 2015 will see him star in two oaters, this being the first, and the second one being QT’s upcoming ‘Hateful 8’. Bone Tomahawk (a truly great title) is billed as a genre-crossing horror western, although I would say that’s really only [...]

Beetlejuice Review

October 27, 2015 // 0 Comments

My wife is among the world’s biggest Tim Burton fans, and this of course, is one of her favorite movies. Growing up I recall loving it too. It’s strange looking back now how little actual screen time Michael Keaton gets in the title role here, but it’s telling how much that he manages to do with said screen time. Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin [...]

Nosferatu Review

October 26, 2015 // 0 Comments

While far be it from me to condone direct theft/plagiarism, I will say here, that even though this movie was a direct rip-off of Bram Stroker’s Dracula, as a motion picture, it remains superior to any subsequent attempt to film the Dracula story, even to this day. This is another review from the big 50-pack horror movie box set I bought a few [...]

Army of Darkness Review

October 25, 2015 // 0 Comments

At the end of Evil Dead 2 Ash, (who while not killing the undead demonic hordes of the world is a humble retail sales associate at S-Mart) jumped into this time vortex thingy-what-have-you or whatever and it transported him back to medieval times where he must use his cunning badassedry to help save a simple people from the evil that lurks among [...]

Evil Dead 2 Review

October 24, 2015 // 0 Comments

Still trapped in the same cabin from part one, Ash, the sole survivor from last time out, still finds himself battling the undead. To keep things interesting a few interlopers and visitors pop up here and there, but mostly, this is Ashley’s inner-badass coming out party bay-bay. Evil Dead 2 is the film most people think of when they think of the [...]
