Scream (2022) – 4K Review

Scream, the legacy sequel to the iconic horror franchise that was helmed by the legendary Wes Craven, hits physical media this week, courtesy of Paramount Pictures; including a gorgeous 4K version that brings the meta universe created by Craven and Kevin Williamson to sharp, and deadly clarity.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2021) – Quentin Tarantino

Man am I divided on this one. I love that Tarantino has given us his first novel, and allows it to expand on his film of the same name. It has a pulpy style to it that fits perfectly with the era, and the aesthetic of the film story he told. It also lists movie…

In fact, throughout the book Bond thinks he must…
