DVD Review THE ATTACK (BLU-RAY)
Critics have raved about this foreign drama for a while now, and it's nice to see it as yet another acclaimed film being distributed on Blu-ray from the Cohen Media Group.
DVD Review THE LADY (BLU-RAY)
On the surface, it's difficult to believe that this is a Luc Besson film. I've repeatedly read over the cover and the booklet inside, and I still don't see anything that suggests Besson's involvement. This mystery, alone, makes this a must-see in my book.
DVD Review SWAMP THING (BLU-RAY)
This was one of my favorite childhood movies, and it's still held up as a go-to flick for me through the years. It's been a while since I've seen it, however, so here's hoping I enjoy it just as much today.
DVD Review AROUSED
This is a documentary about 16 porn stars...I don't need to say another word.
DVD Review THE SWEENEY (BLU-RAY)
A great group of actors are on board for this story of a London crime fighting force that promises plenty of action. Here's hoping the story behind the special effects and stuntwork is equally as engaging.
DVD Review ESCAPE (BLU-RAY)
This could just be the Norwegian, fantasy, Black Plague, action film that we've always been waiting for...or not. What I do know is the cover art couldn't possibly feature a closer look at the lead actor's face, and there are certainly quite a lot of arrows and knives involved.
DVD Review A HAUNTING: THE 2012 SEASON
I haven't exactly heard great things about this show, and it seems awfully derivative of other supernatural reality series, but if it's even the least bit spooky, then I'm definitely on board.
DVD Review THE LONELIEST PLANET
This film made it on numerous Best of 2012 lists, and deservedly so, as it is a quiet, thought-provoking masterpiece. The only crime is that it there are no plans for a U.S. Blu-ray release.
DVD Review THE DUELLISTS (BLU-RAY)
I'm not sure how this, Ridley Scott's first film, never made it onto my radar, but what better way to watch it for the first time than via this potentially excellent new Blu-ray disc from Shout Factory.
DVD Review BARON BLOOD (BLU-RAY)
It's finally time to retire my old laserdisc copy of Mario Bava's return to gothic form, as this promises to be a wonderful Blu-ray edition from Kino Classics.
DVD Review WAR OF THE DEAD (BLU-RAY)
This sure seems like an interesting, shockingly original take on the soon-to-be-tired zombie film, but my gut tells me that there won't be much here to like.
DVD Review BASKET CASE 2
This second installment of the adventures of everyone's favorite surgically separated conjoined twins takes the weirdness level up a few notches, to say the least.
DVD Review HEMPSTERS: PLANT THE SEED
The topic of marijuana legalization has never been more of a hot-button issue than it is today, and this documentary promises to delve into the subject down to its core. It'll be interesting to see just how politically driven the film turns out to be.
DVD Review ELENA
I'm always up for a good foreign thriller, and everything I've heard about this in the past year or so has my anticipation level near its highest point.
This short, experimental film has been tough to get a hold of for years, thanks, in large part, to it being banned in the UK. Now that such a ban has been lifted, we can see for ourselves what the fuss was all about.
DVD Review THE HEINEKEN KIDNAPPING (BLU-RAY)
Yes, folks, even seemingly ageless actors like Rutger Hauer get older, but he seems to be aging gracefully, leading up this fictionalized version of the most publicized abduction to ever occur in the Netherlands.
DVD Review IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE (BLU-RAY)
The great Wong Kar-wai's masterpiece was given the proper Criterion Collection treatment on DVD a few years ago, and is one of their banner releases. It now shows up on a Criterion Blu-ray disc, and I'd be shocked if it wasn't even more special than the first time.
DVD Review NEIL YOUNG JOURNEYS (BLU-RAY)
Director Jonathan Demme took a great Talking Heads concert and made it better. Now, he chronicles a unique journey home for Neil Young, and likely, takes this to another level as well.
DVD Review BASKET CASE 3
The further adventures of Duane and his malformed, formerly conjoined twin brother Belial stick in my memory as a case of director Frank Henenlotter going to the well one too many times. That opinion could change, given that it's been at least 15 years since I've seen this second sequel, but I have a bad feeling it won't.
DVD Review FEAR AND DESIRE (BLU-RAY)
The legendary Stanley Kubrick's first feature film finally makes its way to Blu-ray, after being virtually unseen since it first showed up in theaters back in 1953. The fact that Kino has thrown in a documentary short by Kubrick as well, makes this realease one of the easier purchasing decisions of the year.
DVD Review DEAD SEASON
I'm not sure we need yet another zombie movie, but it looks like this latest installment in the genre wears its extremely low budget nature as a badge of honor, for better or worse.
DVD Review DARK SHADOWS (BLU-RAY)
Despite a slew of bad reviews, I'm still excited to see what Tim Burton has in store for the great character of Barnabas Collins. At worst, it sure looks like Depp is having a blast with the role.
DVD Review CLEANSKIN (BLU-RAY)
This is the film that Sean Bean fans have been waiting for, as they finally get to see him take on the action-packed role of a British Secret Service Agent...that isn't named James Bond.
DVD Review 8:46
11 years after 9/11, the horrors continue to linger. Films are still being made about this unforgettable tragedy, and this certainly sounds like one of the more memorable ones.
We all know the story, and a whole heck of a lot of us saw the movie 15 years ago, but, unless you caught it earlier this year in theaters, you've never see a giant ship in 3D before. Well, folks, now's your chance!
