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…

Carrion Comfort (1989) – Dan Simmons

I’ve been enjoying the Dan Simmons’ books I’ve been reading, and finally had time to dig into his epic, and much hailed horror novel, Carrion Comfort.

Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) – Phil Johnston and Rich Moore

When I was growing up, Disney films meant the holidays for me, and it wouldn’t matter if they were all Disney released films or not, they were collectively known in my home as Disney movies, and this implied that they would be suitable for the entire family, and presented the possibility of an evening’s entertainment…
