mike-and-dave-boxart

 

A laugh riot on Blu-ray, the movie Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates shows why it’s at the top of this year’s comedies. The duo of Zac Efron and Adam Devine remind me of Paul Rudd and Seth Rogan in films like Knocked Up and Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn in The Wedding Crashers. Zany, wacky and out and out looney the story hardly ever lets go of the funny bone. Read more

Alexander BOXART

 

One of the funniest films released last year Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day has come to DVD and Blu-ray. While the title is way too long the film packs a lot a laughter in just an hour and 21 minutes. A lot of fun for the whole family, the movie points out how anyone can have a day go wrong, but there’s always a bright side. Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner are at their best and the direction by Miguel Arteta top notch. Read more

Guardians of the Galaxy Speeds to DVD & Blu-ray

GuardiansOfTheGalaxy3DComboPack_smallOne of Marvel’s more non-tradition films representing their line of fantastical creations, Guardians of the Galaxy will be out on DVD and Blu-ray November 18. There are not many movies I can watch over and over again, but this movie does make my replay list! If you’d rather wait until it comes On Demand, you’ll be waiting a little longer — like December 9. Yea – that’s too long to wait…

This movie kicked butt at the box office, raking in over $645 million worldwide. It opened up this past August and broke records – being the biggest box office open of all time in the month of August. Not only that, this bad boy ranked the highest grossing film of the year as well. Read more

“The Outsider” An Exciting Action Drama

OUTSIDER box

 

An exciting thriller called The Outsider made by an indie filmmaker using a lot of good talent has come to Blu-ray/DVD.  The $4 million production has some good things going for it, but the unimaginative script makes it all too familiar. Not the best I’ve seen for the genre and not the worse either.  If you like dramas with a lot of nonstop action, then you are perfect for this barnburner. Read more

“Ninja II” A Kicking Good Film

NINJA shadow of a tear BOXART

 

The action in Ninja: Shadow of a Tear puts the film right up with a majority of the martial arts films I’ve seen and even bests some for its fighting sequences.  The stylish karate choreography reminds me a lot of the Jet Lee films that keep the energy high and relentless.  Although the story is rather clichéd, it’s not the script that makes this film good, but some very cool fight scenes that keep it interesting and fun to watch.  If you are into movies of this genre, than seek out a copy of Ninja: Shadow of a Tear now on Blu-ray.

Here it’s Rosemary’s Baby in a depraved look at a house from hell.  If you are into films that are gory and really messed up, then this wicked flick should do the trick. Read more

Creepshow 2, a Trio of Horror on Blu-ray

CREEPSHOW boxart

 

Disturbing, scary, startling and comical at times Creepshow 2 comes to Blu-ray for the first time.  The three tales are perfect for those who like their horror written by George Romero and Stephen King.  The film released in the mid 1980s looking for the thrills that the 1982 original Creepshow gave, but even though ‘2’ does ramp up the R rating it loses the power of surprise.  For those who didn’t see Creepshow and are watching this sequel for the first time however, it can be a lot of fun.

Only God Forgives a Surreal Nightmare

Only God Forgives BOXART

 

The taut drama Only God Forgives has been released on Blu-ray with Nicolas Winding Refn delivering another strong performance by Ryan Gosling.  The surreal dreamlike presentation makes it voyeuristic and compelling even with the brutal and butchery subject matter.  While the performance by Gosling is stellar, Kristin Scott Thomas steals most of the scenes making her character wicked and demanding.
