If it's crap ... We'll tell you
A big week of releases so let's jump right in with the...
War is hell. Unless you've got tiger's blood, of course, like Charlie Sheen who, as a young pre-winner, played the narrator and lead character of Chris in what I suspect most people think of as…Continue
Touchstone Pictures, who picked this up after John Lassiter from Pixar gave it the boot, really needs to hire new marketing people. This cutesy…Continue
I gotta hand it to the After Dark Originals people; they've really hit their stride. The only sad thing about their label putting out horror films now all through the…Continue
Another week, another coffee table littered with freshly watched movies at the Cyrus domicile. But nothing that came out made me quite as happy as the...
It was a wacky week and I didn't get to do all the longer reviews I hoped to, but here's some last minute stuff about some of the other releases you might of missed that came out last week...
Wait, how did a Natalie Portman starring film slip past us theatrically and go right to blu/dvd with her current high profile status? I'll tell you how; this was made in 2009 and was put…Continue
Sometimes I worry that my DVD reviews have become merely a master class in critical analysis applied to the covers of new releases. But then again, the battle against gullibility has to begin somewhere. No better…Continue
I got overloaded this week with stuff coming out. Seriously, a ton of stuff, although mainly in the fields of indie, foreign, and classic movie blu-ray re-releases. Which isn't to say there isn't a lot worth picking up because there more certainly is. Unfortunately, sheer quantity means I didn't get to watch everything before release day, but we'll start off with the stuff I DID get to see, beginning with the...
Marvel is kind-of touting this direct-to-dvd animated movie as a prequel to the theatrical film. But don't be fooled. Not a heckuva lot of thought went into connecting this…Continue
When watching films like "No Strings Attached", it's hard to believe that director Ivan Reitman is the same guy who once brought us classics like…Continue
Yes, that's right, I actually sat through a movie called "Cougars, Inc". I mean, sure, if it had been some sort of training film, I probably would have shelled out 30 smackers or so for tips and…Continue
Compared to last week, this week's home release opportunities are more plentiful and of a higher quality, with some great re-issues on Blu-Ray, and two of the best foreign films of last year...and I mean the kind of foreign films YOU GUYS will like, if not outright love. So strap in for the first part of "This Just In" with our ritual beginning of the...
Bad planning, a frantic schedule, and just plain ol' procrastination led to me not getting up the new "THIS JUST IN" post in a timely manner this week. There's ESPECIALLY no good excuse since there's barely any actual new releases for some reason (or, at least, none I got sent to review). The grand majority of releases are blu-ray re-re-releases with nothing added. Neither did there appear to be anything quite fancy or awesome enough to give it the top spot, the coveted…Continue
