Lara Croft: Tomb Raider 4K Double Feature

Paramount Pictures brings Angelina Jolie’s foray into the action adventure world of video game character Lara Croft home in a new 4K upgrade two pack. And while neither film quite reaches the heights that the studio was hoping for – a female Indiana Jones character seems like a surefire win to me, as long as…

Excalibur (1981) – John Boorman

Like a series of pre-Raphaelite paintings brought to life, director John Boorman infuses the screen with magic and beauty as he delves into the myth of King Arthur and delivers what would become the gold standard for cinematic interpretations of the English legend. Each frame is a work of art as the story follows the…

Justice League (2017) – Zack Snyder

Hitting blu-ray this week from Warner Brothers is the latest superhero effort from DC, and it isn’t everything we hoped for, but perhaps its the Justice League film we deserve. DC has been playing catch up with Marvel for the last decade, despite the fact that they were the go to people for superhero movies…

Game of Thrones – Season 3 On Blu-Ray

  HBO is quickly becoming the gold standard by which I measure a collection’s extras, and transfers by, and the latest season of George R.R. Martin’s epic and involving fantasy tale is another feather in their cap. Since it burst on the scene in 2011, the series has enraptured fans and non-fans alike with its…

I’m well aware that I am late to the party on this title, but I really wanted to put some distance between myself and all the reviews that came out upon it’s release. I have the Barsoom novels, penned by Edgar Rice Burroughs (Carter first appeared on the scene in 1912!) and enjoyed them. I…

Jack Ryan

Tom Clancy books were just a part of my teen years as Stephen King novels, Star Trek, and classic 80s movies (course how was I to know they were going to be classics when I was watching them? I just knew I loved them. I got into the books with the first paperback edition of…

The Woman In Black

Sue and I finally got to the theater this week to see The Woman In Black… Hammer films have begun to make a resurgence. A staple of the mid-50s through to the 70s, they brought some classic horror films to light, including the Curse of Frankenstein which I recently watched, as well as The Horror…

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy – Review

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is an old school, cold-war spy thriller. And sadly, I think it’s not going to find as much of an audience as I would like it to here in North America. There’s not enough flash to hold the attention of the younger movie watchers who make up the large percentage of…
