Universal Soldier   Universal Soldier 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/4/2019 9:31 PM EST
The 1980s and early 1990s saw a growth in action films in the United States; a trend that seems to have continued well into recent years.  Stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, Rambo) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard) were becoming household names.  Car chases, gunfights, and hand to hand combat were the ...

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark   Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  11/4/2019 5:13 PM EST
PG-13 horror movies, always conjure up images of milquetoast monsters, bloodless kill- scenes, and plots which cater to an, at best, immature audience. I know this seems like a seriously gross generalization, and perhaps it is a tad judgmental, but I have been to too many of them to think otherwise. Or have I! This is not the case with Scary S...

Red Heat   Red Heat 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/29/2019 11:55 PM EST
In the 1980s the United States was engrossed in a couple of wars – The Cold War and the War on Drugs.  Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator) was also one of the biggest action stars in movies.  It was only natural to combine those two ideas to make a film starring "Arnie"  and that is exactly what TriStar Pictures did in...

An American Werewolf in London   An American Werewolf in London Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  10/28/2019 11:37 PM EST
John Landis (Coming to America, Michael Jackson's Thriller) has created many, what most people would term, "classic" films. Many of them, like Trading Places, or The Blues Brothers, to name a few, were comedies but one, in particular, has stuck with Horror film lovers and for good reason. An American Werewolf in London is high on the...

Scarface   Scarface 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/26/2019 8:02 PM EST
In 1932 a film about the rise and fall of a Chicago gangster named Tony (Paul Muni).  In 1983 a remake written by Oliver Stone (Natural Born Killers) and directed by Brian De Palma (The Untouchables) made its way to theaters winning critics' and audiences' praises.  It has become an iconic film that consistently shows up on "greatest...

The Lion King   The Lion King 4K Ultra HD Review
(Alyn Darnay)  10/25/2019 9:20 AM EST
Here's another film reimagining from the Disney vault of golden animation, and this one ‘Rocks'. Using what they call a ‘Live-Action' technique to bring the 1994 animated musical drama "The Lion King" to a more vivid and real experience, they may have just opened up the tale to a new generation of viewers, while never changing...

More and more lately movies have been colliding with pop culture.  In 2016 we watched as Emma Roberts played a deadly online game from her smartphone in Nerve and last year we saw John Cho look for his missing daughter through her social media accounts in Searching.  This summer in an attempt to update the buddy comedy genre, Twentieth Ce...
