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…

Hitting blu-ray and DVD today from Warner Brothers is the brilliant follow-up to the 2014 hit, Paddington.

Silicon Valley: Season 2

  Mike Judge’s first season of the computer-tech comedy series was not a fluke. Unveiling today on HBO DVD and Blu-Ray is the second, equally hilarious season, that follows Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) and his Pied Piper team, as they continue to work on their compression algorithms, elude lawsuits, try to find funding and chase…

Willow Creek (2013) – Bobcat Goldthwait

Hitting DVD and Blu-Ray last week was this found footage film that I missed at Toronto After Dark last year. As a slow-burning, low-budget horror film, this one works, and is wonderfully creepy and troubling. Don’t go in expecting big budget thrills, think Blair Witch, but replaced, possibly, by Bigfoot. Jim (Bryce Johnson) is a…
