Magnum P.I.: Season Four – DVD Review

I was delighted to come home from TIFF and be able to unplug and unwind with a tropical getaway. Okay, I didn’t really get away, but thanks to Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Zachary Knighton, Stephen Hill, Amy Hill and Tim Kang, I got to spend some time in Hawaii alongside the new take on Magnum…

Star Trek 4K – The Human Adventure Continues…

So much Trek to get through! Paramount Pictures delivers the goods with their 4K releases this week. I remember where I was the first time I saw each film, and I was a recently turned eight-year-old who sat in the theatre in CFB Borden as Christmas drew closer, and I sat and loved every minute…

1883 (2021) – Blu-Ray Review

It has been a while since I was utterly gobsmacked and left wordless following a television show, but 1883, an origin story for the hugely popular Yellowstone series (which I’ve yet to start) did that. It is available today on Blu-ray and DVD from Paramount Pictures. Written and created by Taylor Sheridan, who also created…

Star Trek: Lower Decks (2021) Season 2 – Blu-Ray Review

Lower Decks has been a gift for Star Trek fans, and Paramount Canada lets you bring home the Emmy-nominated second season on Blu-ray today. The series has been a join since its premiere, delivering comedy and in-jokes while still being Star Trek at its core. Over the course of the ten episodes of season two,…

The Batman (2022) – 4K Review

Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson’s take on the World’s Greatest Detective, The Batman, is available now from Warner Brothers Canada on DVD, Blu, and 4K. They were kind enough to ensure I had a copy on hand to take a look at, and I was more than happy to take a look at the film…

The Untouchables (1987) – 4K Review

For a lot of people, Carrie, Scarface, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, or even Phantom of the Paradise was their introduction to Brian De Palma. For me, it was The Untouchables in 1987. And for the first time, I started to take notice of the language of film. I was a teen, wholly fascinated by…

Spiritwalker (2020) – Yoon Jae-keun

Hitting digital, DVD and Blu-Ray today from Well Go USA Entertainment is this Korean bare-knuckle action flick with some sci-fi undertones that keeps things moving right until the last frame. The film gives a new spin on familiar territory, and features solidly constructed, and executed action and fight sequences. Ian (Yoon Kyesang) isn’t who he…

Malignant (2021) – Blu-Ray Review

Warner Brothers sent me a copy of James Wan’s new film to take a look at. I’ll be honest, I like Wan’s work. I like that he takes chances with his craft, while also paying homage, and nodding to the influences that helped shape him. In his new feature, Malignant, which is now available on…

The Haunting of Bly Manor (2020) – Blu-Ray Review

Writer/director Mike Flanagan has been on my one to watch list since Occulus, I love how he tells his tales of the supernatural, and when he adapted The Haunting of Hill House, I had to share that with everyone, as I was sucked in by each episode, and was left an emotional wreck by the…
