  • MANHATTAN BABY 1

    MANHATTAN BABY

    MANHATTAN BABY REVIEWED “Manhattan Baby” follows a young girl on vacation in Egypt. After she’s given a mysterious charm, her father goes blind. Now, ancient Egyptian curses are following the family back to their Manhattan home. After that point, the film barely makes sense. More than anything, it feels...
  • THING, THE: COLLECTOR'S EDITION 5

    THING, THE: COLLECTOR’S EDITION

    THE THING: COLLECTOR’S EDITION REVIEWED “The Thing: Collector’s Edition” is one of those home video rarities. This is the definitive version of a film. I can hear the tech nerds whining about how Ultra 4K and other means will eventually replace it, but this is watershed moment. From time...
  • CHILD'S PLAY: COLLECTOR'S EDITION 7

    CHILD’S PLAY: COLLECTOR’S EDITION

    CHILD’S PLAY: COLLECTOR’S EDITION REVIEWED “Child’s Play” is the film that dared to collapse the almighty My Buddy empire. Being of the right age when this film hit theaters, I can remember scores of elementary schoolers looking at their life size toys and saying NOPE. Tom Holland was so...
  • EQUESTRIA GIRLS: LEGEND OF EVERFREE 9

    EQUESTRIA GIRLS: LEGEND OF EVERFREE

    EQUESTRIA GIRLS: LEGEND OF EVERFREE REVIEWED “Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree” must work well for little girls. But, I just came from a conversation with an adult Brony fan explaining their love for the Equestria Girls. Let’s be honest, most of the fan subsections scare the living bile out...
  • OUR KIND OF TRAITOR 11

    OUR KIND OF TRAITOR

    OUR KIND OF TRAITOR REVIEWED “Our Kind of Traitor” tries to juggle many pieces that don’t quite work. The end result is a jigsaw puzzle of immense talent being shoved into a shaky structure. Ewan McGregor proves his ability to make inane dialogue sound amazing in what amounts to...
  • NIGHT OF, THE 13

    NIGHT OF, THE

    THE NIGHT OF REVIEWED “The Night Of” surprised me this summer on HBO. While so much of the show is familiar, there’s something to Naz’s story that strikes me odd. The show plays with Point-of-View to the point of losing track of whose focus we are absorbing. Did Naz...
  • WAXWORK / WAXWORK II: LOST IN TIME: COLLECTOR'S EDITION 15

    WAXWORK / WAXWORK II: LOST IN TIME: COLLECTOR’S EDITION

    WAXWORK/WAXWORK II REVIEWED “Waxwork / Waxwork II” is a blessing delivered onto Blu-ray. Many horror fans have their movies that first brought them to Vestron and “Waxwork” was my initial entry point. This film was self-referential horror before Kevin Williamson drove that beast into the ground. For those that...
  • FRANCESCA 17

    FRANCESCA

    FRANCESCA REVIEWED “Francesca” disappeared ages ago. Now, what will her father and detectives do when she seemingly returns. Vicious murders abound, as giallo influences fill this film. While the kills are stunning, everything about this movie feels like a fan attempt to ape a long-dead subgenre. Sure, it works...
  • EXOTIC DANCES OF BETTIE PAGE, THE 19

    EXOTIC DANCES OF BETTIE PAGE, THE

    THE EXOTIC DANCES OF BETTIE PAGE REVIEWED “The Exotic Dances of Bettie Page” is a multi-chaptered look at the highlights of Page’s career. While the film was originally released in 1991, this offering gives some new background due to Page’s second wind before her death in 2008. Somewhere between...
