Creed II (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

Creed II hits blu-ray and DVD today from Warner Brothers, and it continues to prove it is its own beast, while embracing the Rocky-universe in which it is set. And this film does so even more than the first film, because, well this time, it’s personal. Tying in directly with Rocky IV – you know…

The Boy Who Cried Werewolf (1973) – Nathan Juran

Have I told you how much I hate when people shoot day for night? Ugh. And it is so prevalent in the next film recommended from DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies book as I continue exploring the werewolf chapter. Honestly, this one is pretty horrible. It’s budget is so strained that it feels more…

Ginger Snaps (2000) – John Fawcett

Werewolf movies get the Canadian treatment with the cult classic, Ginger Snaps. The next werewolf title featured in the immensely enjoyable Monsters in the Movies by John Landis, and available now from DK Canada provides a unique spin on the mythology of the lycanthrope when tying in the cycle of the werewolf with that of…

The African Queen (1951) – John Huston

The thing I am truly loving about DK Canada’s The Movie Book is that as I work my way through the titles and recommendations, I get to revisit films that I may have seen before, but never had a chance to cover for the blog. And that gives me a great opportunity to catch up…

Paprebacks From Hell (2017) – Grady Hendrix

Grady Hendrix wowed and delighted me with his nostalgia, and horror filled, My Best Friend’s Exorcism, and I’m always on the look out for the other books he’s written. So when I came across his non-fiction book, Paperbacks From Hell, documenting the paperback horror novels of the 70s and 80s, I had to grab it…

Daybreakers (2009) – The Spierig Brothers

The next entry in the vampire section of DK Canada’s very entertaining Monsters in the Movies book is a but of a unique tale. Set in the far future of 2019, vampires are the dominant life form on the planet after a virus has swept the world. Humans are dying out, and those that aren’t…

Cronos (1993) – Guillermo del Toro

del Toro’s first feature film is the next title up for viewing thanks to DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies book. I recall watching it when it first came to home video years ago, and was more than ready to dive into this take on the classic vampire tale from one of my favorite directors….

Be More Yoda and Be More Vader (2018) – Christian Blauvelt

The holidays are drawing closer, in fact some people have probably already started their Xmas shopping, and if you have a Star Wars fan on your list, or a businessperson, or someone trying to get the best out of their life, as well as achieving a bit of zen, then DK Canada may have the…

Fright Night (1985) – Tom Holland

One of my favorite vampire movies is the next title up in the Monsters in the Movies book from DK Canada. Tom Holland’s Fright Night starring Roddy McDowall, Chris Sarandon, Stephen Geoffreys, Amanda Bearse and young William Ragsdale in the lead in this wonderful suburban update on the vampire legend. I came to horror movies…

Disney and Marvel Studios brings the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to your ever-expanding blu-ray shelf as Ant-Man and The Wasp comes home. In terms of timeline, this film seems to happen concurrently with Infinity War, something that is touched on during the tags at the end of the film, and gives Ant-Man’s…
