“VEEP” Politically Witty

The political comedy VEEP that has had a good run on HBO has just released the DVD of their 6th season. Mostly tongue-in-cheek comedy the series involves the ins and outs of modern government from the viewpoint of a strong willed, dominant first lady who has tasted the Presidency of the United States for 6 months and has eluded her since. It’s a lot of fun and sort of takes the edge off the political rhetoric of today.  Read more

“The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” the Cells of an Angel

While all true stories are interesting in one way or another, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks adds another dimension with an enigma.  Leaving the viewer with questions and a need to find out more, the angel that brought a chance for life to multitudes has been nearly absent from historical significance.  Based on the book by Rebecca Skloot that has been turned into this movie, it’s an epiphany that gets much needed fresh air. The film is being released on Blu-ray/DVD this week.  Read more

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2” Kickin’ it on Home Video

Kicking off into hyperspace Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 turns up the action and the comedy in this science fiction action adventure now on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD. It’s been nearly 3 years since the first one hit the big screen and that one was amazing, but I was extremely happy with this next chapter that blew me away. The production quality on the Blu-ray outweighs that of the first taking audiences into a future filled with imaginative aliens and a vast fantasy universe. Read more

“Ash vs Evil Dead” a Bloody Good Horror Feast

Weird, corny, silly, ridiculous, disgusting and nearly vomit inducing, all the things you will like about Ash vs Evil Dead 2.  It’s the kind of horror and bloody mayhem that when presented with tongue-in-cheek comedy can be very amusing. It’s for those who have become fans of the Starz TV Network program or just need a break from the ordinary.  Although I am a fan of Army of Darkness, it was my first time seeing this spin off off of The Evil Dead Trilogy.  This is the second season of Ash vs Evil Dead and is now on Blu-ray/DVD.

“Union Furnace” Turns On the Heat

This little indie has a very sadistic plot that although somewhat predictable plays out fairly well.  But, the production quality suffers from the lack of funds and the unskillful acting ability involving support characters reduces the entertainment value. That said Union Furnace is a good platform for novice writer/director Nicholas Bushman and his cast. The film has just been released in Blu-ray and DVD. Read more

“Phoenix Forgotten” a UFO Sighting Revisited

A fictional recall of the incident in Phoenix Arizona whereby a sighting of a UFO turned the city upside-down with fear on March 13, 1997 has been targeted for yet another movie.  Now on DVD, Phoenix Forgotten is a pretentious tale of three lost teens who went hunting for the interplanetary vessel that may have caused the incident. Although it would have been a startling revelation, but much like The Blair Witch Project and other fictional films like 10 Cloverfield Lane, it’s just another folk tale. Read more
