Blu-Ray Review: Star Trek – Beyond (2016) – Justin Lin

Beaming in on Blu-Ray and DVD today from Paramount Pictures is the latest entry in the reboot or Kelvin-verse Star Trek series. I’d previously reviewed my theatrical experience of the film here,  so I was eager to see how my impressions of it changed when viewed at home. I actually found myself enjoying it more. Knowing…

Star Trek: Beyond (2016) – Justin Lin

  The latest Star Trek film, celebrating the long-lived series 50th anniversary hits screens nationwide today, and once again, film-goers are invited to Boldly go… And for the most part, it’s pretty damned enjoyable, and arguably a step up from the previous entry. While I was unsure of Lin taking the helm (I’m not a…

Star Trek (2009) – J.J. Abrams

  It’s time to boldly go with the latest incarnation of Star Trek, as I continue my journey with the cinematic version of the U.S.S. Enterprise for the Sci-Fi Chronicles book. I won’t lie, I enjoyed this one, and while it may not be Star Trek as it was intended or created by Gene Roddenberry,…

Odd Thomas (2013) – Stephen Sommers

  Anchor Bay was kind enough to send along a copy of the Blu-Ray release of Odd Thomas to me. Sue Maynard and I were lucky enough to catch a screening of it at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival last year. Check out her original review here. While predominantly a supernatural thriller, Odd Thomas…

Toronto After Dark 2013: Odd Thomas – Stephen Sommers

  Before I get into last night’s early feature at Toronto After Dark, I want to say a quick blurb about the short film that screened before it.  Every year, a Canadian short will screen before each feature film of the festival, and last night’s film was paired with a wicked little short by Adam…

Toronto After Dark 2013

  Tonight, one of my favorite film festivals gets underway, Toronto After Dark, a heady combination of horror, sci-fi and cult filmss. People I’ve spoken to want to know what movies I’m most eager to see at this year’s festival, so I thought I would share them with you. It struck me as interesting last year,…

Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) – J.J. Abrams

This is a summer blockbuster first and foremost. Since Trek made the leap to the bug screen, they’ve had to eschew some of the material that inherently made Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek what is was when it was a weekly television show. After The Motion Picture, which I still love, the series began to shift…

Tim’s Halloween Movies

It’s Halloween! Always a fun time of year, and while I could sit here and give you my favorite scary movies, I thought perhaps I would just list 10 films that I really enjoy, in no particular order, ones that are good for a spooky movie night. These are movies that are fun to watch, or you…

Fright Night (Remake & Original)

  So this weekend, I finally sat down to watch the remake of Fright Night. I should point out that until Let The Right One In came along, the original Fright Night, from way back in 1985 and the one and only The Lost Boys, from 1987, were my all time favorite vampire movies, but…
