Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan: Season One (2018) Blu-Ray Review

Paramount Canada has brought home the first season of Amazon Prime’s new Jack Ryan series on DVD and blu-ray and John Krasinski, who also serves as one of the producers of the series assumes the mantle of Tom Clancy’s CIA analyst, who first appeared on the big screen in The Hunt For Red October. Krasinski…

Magnum P.I. (2018) – DVD Review

Jay Hernandez is NOT Tom Selleck (and he never said he was). He’s likable, sure, but he doesn’t have Selleck’s 80s era charm, delivery, and smooth ability to break the fourth wall. That has stopped the series from relaunching late last year and coming home on DVD today. I had always made the argument that…

Miami Vice (1988) – Bad Timing, and Borrasca

Bad Timing written by Scott Shepherd, is the final episode in the Sonny Burnett arc. Vice detective Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson) is under review and testimony seems to be pretty damning, but I’m sure he’ll find his way through. First airing on 2 December, 1988, Sonny has his hands full with the review, and takes…

A Star is Born (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

The Oscar nominated A Star is Born comes home today on blu-ray from Warner Brothers, and it makes a great addition to the collection, and a fantastic new iteration of the classic story.

The Meg (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

Going into this movie, I was reminded of a piece of dialogue from Back to the Future Part II – “Shark still looks fake.” But that doesn’t really hold Warner Brothers’ The Meg, which releases today on blu-ray and DVD from being a silly bit of cinematic confection. A Chinese-American co-pro, shot largely in New…

Incredibles 2 (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

Pixar films are a constant delight for me, and I look forward to each theatrical release, as well as their blu-ray releases each year, and today is the day for that home release… Incredibles 2 joins the Pixar collection on my blu-ray shelf today, and continues to set the gold standard of Disney/Pixar home releases…

Christopher Robin (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

Coming home on blu-ray and DVD today is the wonderful family film from Disney, Christopher Robin, that takes a page from Spielberg’s Hook, and posits what if Christopher Robin (Ewan MacGregor) grew up and left he Hundred Acre Wood, Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and the rest behind. Directed by Marc Forster, the film, set in post…

Ready Player One (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

If there’s a movie that will serve easter egg hunters by being released to blu-ray (and DVD) then it’s Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s iconic, nostalgia inducing science fiction romp, Ready Player One, available today from Warner Brothers. Tye Sheridan stars as Wade, a young dreamer, who like everyone in his generation, living amongst…

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…

Coming to America – 30th Anniversary Edition: Blu-Ray Review

Coming to America, another classic pairing between Eddie Murphy and John Landis hits its 30th Anniversary with a blu-ray release from Paramount Pictures. Murphy created the story which Landis seems to delight in bringing to the screen. Basically a Cinderella story, the story follows Prince Akeem (Murphy) who objects to the idea of marrying someone…
