THE CAPTAINS (DVD)...Guest Review by HARRIS
You have to give Shatner credit: the man is the king of the comeback. He's had a career as a nerd icon and sex symbol, followed…Continue
Whereas there were a lot of releases this week, there weren't really a lot that qualified for the BIG THREE, but the three I did pick are pretty hard to contest...
THE DEVIL'S DOUBLE (Blu-Ray and DVD)
Okay, so SOME would…Continue
BLUE VELVET (Blu-Ray)
A very special conversational review between the LEOG's own Catherine Burke and…
It's New Release day again, and my doorstep has been flooded with more home versions of movies and TV shows than I can reasonably keep up with (or even watch). And not just because of Skyrim either (but not entirely NOT because of it, to be fair). At the very least, I'm here to point out to you the best bets for each week. At least, from my (not so) humble point of view. I mean, sure, you can argue. But what's the point? I actually have ear pods I keep in now that just go…Continue
WINNIE THE POOH (Blu-Ray and DVD)...Guest Review by LEON
The concept of a sequel made 34 years after the original movie is enough to make me cringe so hard, I get a Charlie…
Yup...way behind again. Welcome to my life. TOO many things to watch/play/read/etc. So, here's some of the titles from the past month I missed commenting on...
Tuesday is new release day for Blu-ray and DVDs and while I'm not always timely about getting these things mentioned right away (to be fair, the studios often don't even send me the movies/tv seasons until the day or two before), I'm going to start trying to at least give you a rundown of, "The Big Three": the cream of each week's crop as selected by me. Naturally, there's going to be some amount of 'but what about...?' and possibly even completely uncalled for derision.…Continue
What's probably the biggest draw for this fifth entry in the improbably long-lived "Fast and the Furious" series, other than it's following of the second best of the films, is the…Continue
BORED TO DEATH - SEASON 2 (Blu-Ray and DVD)....Guest Review by LEON
Writer Jonathan Ames’ adventures of the fictional Jonathan Ames…Continue
Oh no....the smoke machine...it isn't working. DAMMIT WHY WON'T YOU WORK. Oh well, I got six more in the back. Just gonna haul one of these out. What? My graveyard has GOT to have fog! But until some unsuspecting tykes looking for treats show up, I'm gonna dole out some more of these Halloween new releases...
Sorry there was a break there between reviews...I had to go buy front door candy. Not that I originally planned to, it just all came crashing down on me....HALLOWEEN IS ALMOST OVER....it's not fair. So, suffice it to say, my front door is now all crazy Halloweened out...not that I expect any of the parents in the neighborhood to send their kids over to the old haunted Cyrus place....there are those he say he only comes out at night to watch eeeeeevil movies, before he…Continue
Candy, oh shit, did you get candy? What if all those little tykes come to your door expecting a treat and are met with only silence? Or even worse, with apples?!?! Dammit, man, get yer ass to the store and buy some decent candy, like Reeses or something, and stat. While you're out, might as well head over to the video store and decide what you're gonna submit yourself to as you wait for midget monsters to make their appearances at your…Continue
So you've already partied it up with the buddies this past weekend and are feeling it today at work/school. It looks like since the holiday falls on a Monday this year, you'll just be staying home and handing out candy. And you'll probably sit on the couch and....OH CRAP! YOU TOTALLY HAVEN'T PICKED OUT A MOVIE!
This is not a decision to be taken lightly. This is the most important horror movie decision you make all year…Continue
It's no wonder that this Congolese movie (yes, even the Congo is churning out cinematic content now) not only pretty much swept the African Film Awards this year, but is steadily gaining attention here as well. It's…Continue
I gotta tell ya, if you only are going to watch one movie about an evil, murderous, mutated head whose telepathically linked twin brother carries around in a basket while trying to enter the dating scene, it really…Continue
JACKIE BROWN (Blu-Ray)...Guest Review by LEON
Back when Quentin Tarantino was a ‘real’ director, he didn’t follow up his second try, "Pulp Fiction" (one of…Continue
PULP FICTION (Blu-Ray)....Special Guest Review by LEON
Seriously, if you need a plot synopsis of "Pulp Fiction" or have to ask, “What makes this movie so great?”,…Continue
Did you remember that 1997's sci-fi horror film "Mimic" was a Guillermo del Toro movie? I always forget. It didn't exactly blow us out of our seats when we saw it (as "The Reel Deal", for all you…Continue
Now that's one fucking funny night, right there. I mean, I'm not sure that any of these fucking Paramount comedies really required a HD transfer, per…Continue
There's no question that Carrie Fisher had a hard time of it after Star Wars. Her life was a parade of bad decisions and drug /alcohol abuse. Fisher's form of…Continue
