Tiamat’s Wrath (2019) – James S.A. Corey

I say this every time I review one of these books. I love them! I love travelling with this crew, I love the way the story gets doled out, the way not only the action beats play out, but the emotional ones as well. And this book, literally had me cheering, laughing and weeping. After…

Star Trek: Voyager (2000) – Fair Haven, and Blink of an Eye

Captain’s log: stardate unknown Robin Burger pens this holodeck/Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) episode that some will love, some will hate. It’s just different. It first aired on 12 Janyary, 2000. Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill) has given us a couple of relaxing holodeck programs over the course of the Voyager’s journey. There was a French bistro,…

Rocketman (2019) – Blu-Ray Review

The fantasy biopic about musical legend (and one of my favorite artists) Elton John has come home on blu-ray and DVD thanks to Paramount Pictures. Taron Egerton who is bound to be nominated for an Oscar (or should be) IS Elton John in this jukebox musical that tells the musician’s personal history in a fantastical,…

21 Grams (2003) – Alejandro G. Inarritu

The next title on the What Else to Watch list in DK Canada’s The Movie Book, following my screening of The Sweet Hereafter is 21 Grams, which has a strong emotional punch to its unique storytelling narrative. Filled with flash forwards and flashbacks, the tale reveals terrible emotional moments throughout, and then lets us build…

Star Trek: Voyager (1998) – Waking Moments, and Message in a Bottle

Captain’s log: stardate 51471.3 Andre Bormanis (who serves as the science consultant for both Voyager and Deep Space Nine) pens this episode that first aired on 14 January, 1998. The crew of the Voyager all seem to be suffering from night terrors, and all of them feature the exact same alien (Mark Colson) . Of…

Bumblebee (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

This may be the first live action Transformers I have enjoyed since the original animated movie back in the day (and there’s a nice musical nod to it). And without Micheal Bay directing, Travis Knight is in the chair here, you can actually see what is happening the action sequences. So it is with great…

Mary Poppins Returns (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

The Oscar nominated Mary Poppins Returns comes home on blu-ray and DVD today from Disney. Marrying the nostalgia of the original film, released some fifty-four years ago, with a poignant and emotional new story, the character comes back to the big screen (and now home) with the wonderful Emily Blunt stepping comfortably and confidently into…

Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

In 2012, Disney brought us the unluckily hero Wreck-It-Ralph as voiced by John C. Reilly, and pairing him with Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) made for a fantastic combination. A sequel seemed inevitable but Disney took its time, letting the film’s creators come up with the right story (one that will appeal to both kids and adults),…

Disney’s The Little Mermaid Anniversary Edition: The Signature Collection

The Little Mermaid arguably launched the Disney Renaissance, and it is now thirty years old, and what better way to celebrate it than with an all new Signature Edition bli-ray from Walt Disney. Featuring fantastic songs by Howard Ashman, and Alan Menken, fantastic voice performances, including Jodi Benson, Rene Auberjonois, Buddy Hackett and Samuel E….

30 Days of Night (2007) – David Slade

Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Steven Niles and Ben Templesmith, 30 Days of Night, is a fun, and bloody film that is the next vampire flick to come up in John Landis’ Monsters In The Movies, available from DK Canada. Barrow, Alaska, is a remote and isolated Alaskan town. Every…

A Quiet Place (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

The horror game-changer, A Quiet Place, hit blu-ray and DVD this week from Paramount Pictures, and it’s just as amazing and terrifying in your home theatre. Director and star John Krasinksi (who also had his hand in the screenplay – and for some people will always be Jim from The Office, though this film definitely…
