‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Blu-Ray Review: More Simple Animatronic Fights In Fifth Installment

Transformers films have been known for their bombastic fight sequences between gargantuan robots dubbed Autobots and Decepticons that can morph into all sorts of cool gear: cars, trucks, and other machinery. Transformers: The Last Knight Blu-Ray Review The Last Knight, the fifth movie in the franchise based on Hasbro’s toys that began appearing in the 1980s, brings […]

Movie Review – The Funhouse Massacre (2015)

The Funhouse Massacre, 2015.

Directed by Andy Palmer.

Starring Robert Englund, Jere Burns, Scottie Thompson, Matt Angel, Chasty Ballesteros, Clint Howard, and Mars Crain.

Synopsis:

Six of the world’s scariest psychopaths escape from a local Asylum and proceed to unleash terror on the unsuspecting crowd of a Halloween Funhouse, whose themed mazes are inspired by their various reigns of terror.

In case the title or the synopsis didn’t make it clear, The Funhouse Massacre is not an Oscar-bait movie. There are no breath-taking performances, stunning visuals, or moments that touch your soul. There is, however, a metric shit-tonne of gore and violence, and even a cheeky bit of nudity. For this reason, I only want to spend a brief moment discussing the technical aspects of The Funhouse Massacre, because it is simply not the kind of film that warrants a technical review. Nevertheless, I feel the need to give

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 Episode 9 Review – ‘Beebo the God of War’

Jessie Robertson reviews the ninth episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 3…

I’m always, always so astonished at how much Legends fits into an hour episode, when so much of it borders on the absurd. And yet it seems to work nearly every time out.

If you predicted one episode in the work pool on how long it would take the Legends to undo Martin’s death, or at least attempt to, you win the money! Jax is struggling, heck all of the crew is struggling but when a young Martin Stein gets sucked through time during a Black Friday sale looking for the hottest toy on the market in 1992, a talking doll named Beebo, Jax sees this as his opportunity to try and get him back by writing a letter (thanks Zari) to tell him of his death in the future. It doesn’t work of course

Review: "Dimension 5" (1966) Starring Jeffrey Hunter And Harold Sakata; Kino Lorber Blu-ray Special Edition

  • CinemaRetro
By Hank Reineke

As one might expect from any 1960’s James Bond pastiche, an assortment of cool spy gadgetry is on display in Franklin Adreon’s Dimension 5 (1966): microchips secreted in the rear compartment of a Bulova wristwatch, a poison dart firing pen, an exploding briefcase, and a cool bullet-firing point-and-shoot 35mm camera. If that’s not enough – and with possible exception of the invisible car from Die Another Day (2002) - Dimension 5 offers us one of the more ridiculous and dubious items found in any secret agent arsenal… a “time-convertor” belt.

We’re first introduced to this device during the film’s mildly exciting pre-credits sequence. In the first few minutes we’re treated to what one expects from a nifty ‘60s spy thriller: a bit of a car chase, a surprising punch-to-the mouth of a double-crossing Asian villainess and a swooping helicopter rescue. What we do not

Movie Review – Stronger (2017)

Stronger, 2017.

Directed by David Gordon Green.

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson, Clancy Brown, and Carlos Sanz.

Synopsis:

Jeff Bauman is just an average guy who works on the deli counter in Costco. On the day of the Boston Marathon in 2013, he joins the crowds to cheer on his ex-girlfriend, Erin, in the hope of winning her back. His life is turned upside down by the bombings near the finishing line but not only does he survive his injuries, he goes on to exemplify Boston Strong.

With a reputation build on indies like Joe, Prince Avalanche and Manglehorn, David Gordon Green flirted with something more mainstream in Our Brand Is Crisis (2015) and nearly got his fingers burnt. The same is unlikely to happen with Stronger. With its emotional true life story and the appeal of its main man, Jake Gyllenhaal, it can’t fail to put bums on seats.

Movie Review – Brigsby Bear (2017)

Brigsby Bear, 2017.

Directed by Dave McCary.

Starring Kyle Mooney, Mark Hamill, Jane Adams, Beck Bennett, Claire Danes, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Greg Kinnear, Kate Lyn Sheil, Ryan Simpkins, Matt Walsh, Michaela Watkins, and Andy Samberg.

Synopsis:

James (Kyle Mooney) adores the TV show Brigsby Bear, a ramshackle slice of 80s children’s entertainment about which he has created online forums upon which to discuss his shelves and shelves of archived VHS tapes. He lives a quiet life with his father (Mark Hamill) and mother (Jane Adams), until one day his world is irreparably changed by a revelation that forces him to view the world in a completely different way.

Reviewing Dave McCary’s ode to friendship and filmmaking is a tricky ordeal, because the less you know about this wonderful little oddity, the better.

It’s tough in today’s cinematic landscape to eek out anything approaching original, but Brigsby Bear

‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ 3D Blu-ray Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong, Robert Patrick, Joe Morton, Earl Boen, Jenette Goldstein, Xander Berkeley | Written by James Cameron, William Wisher Jr. | Directed by James Cameron

Twenty-six years after it blasted onto screens in the summer of 1991, James Cameron’s smash-hit Terminator sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day has been given an immaculate clean-up and 3D conversion treatment for this missed-it-by-a-year anniversary release. Supervised by Cameron himself, the newly tweaked 3D effects are reason enough to see the film again, but does it still hold up after all this time? The short answer is yes. Yes, it does.

The plot, in case you somehow needed reminding, picks up ten years after the events of 1984′s The Terminator, with Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) locked up in an asylum, muttering about an imminent apocalypse, and future resistance leader John Connor (Edward Furlong) still just a snarky ten

Movie Review – Una (2017)

Una, 2017.

Directed by Benedict Andrews.

Starring Rooney Mara, Ben Mendelsohn, Ruby Stokes, Riz Ahmed, Tobias Menzies, Natasha Little, and Tara Fitzgerald.

Synopsis:

A woman confronts an older man, her former neighbor, to find out why he abandoned her after they had a sexual relationship.

The premise of Una is enough on its own to safely say that it’s going to be an uncomfortable, challenging, and possibly upsetting watch (especially considering the current climate of society where every day a few more celebrities or noteworthy public personas are being outed as sex offenders), but it’s worth rolling through every mixed feeling thanks to the electric chemistry on display from the always fearless Rooney Mara (Carol, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and the severely underrated Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Bloodline). Together, they are able to provide layers to the troubling past and present of their characters that,

The Flash Season 4 Episode 8 Review – ‘Crisis on Earth-x – Part 3’

Jessie Robertson reviews the eighth episode of The Flash season 4…

Part 3 is where it’s at. This show had intrigue, drama and action galore. It’s not very Flash-focused, but that’s okay. In Part 3 we meet the resistance to the Nazi regime, right as our heroes are about to be executed by Lance’s doppelgänger, a Nazi general in an extremely intense and frightening scene, not like a typical CW show.

Saving our heroes is Lenny Snart, aka Citizen Cold! Anytime Wentworth Miller shows up, it’s a good episode. Citizen Cold (a great character from the Flashpoint universe) is not near as smarmy as his Earth-One counterpart but he’s still a delight to watch. He’s also involved on this Earth, with Ray Terrill aka The Ray, who’s a big DC Comics hero never before introduced. They have been fighting these Nazi’s on Earth X

The Punisher Season 1 Episode 11 Review – ‘ Danger Close’

Liam Hoofe reviews the eleventh episode of Marvel’s The Punisher

After ten episodes of waiting, ‘Danger Close’ the eleventh episode of Marvel’s The Punisher, finally give a lot of us what we’d come to see – Frank Castle in full-blown Punisher mode.

Following on from the violent events of the last episode, Frank returned to base a beaten and bloodied man. The hotel incident, and the reveal that Billy is, in fact, against him, have clearly taken their toll on Frank both physically and mentally, and he spends the first ten minutes here grunting at Micro.

The episode jumps to Madani who, like Frank, has been rocked by the revelation that Billy is not who she thought he was. While watching the news, Madani flips and decides to bring Russo in to question him. Of course, she gets nowhere. I like Madini’s character but she is so

Home Entertainment: ‘Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets’ 4K Uhd Blu-Ray Review

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets arrived in cinemas during the summer and sadly didn’t quite hold up to the hype that had been built. This happens a lot with tent-pole titles, especially those directed by an established director, and can kill a film before its even reached the screen. It happened with the Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending, and this year it sadly happened with Luc Besson’s Valerian.

It may have failed to set the box-office alight, but Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets has all the ingredients to be a success on home entertainment platforms. It’s a science-fiction action adventure – a genre that tends to convert well at home – it’s directed by Luc Besson and had mixed reviews, meaning that whilst many didn’t want to risk a wasted trip to the cinema, they are still curious to see just what the film is like.

A behind-the-scenes look at the making of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room (2003).

Oh hai readers!

Is The Disaster Artist a funnier and more complete film having seen the incoherent train wreck that is Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 released disasterpiece The Room (including a general familiarity with its toxic production)? Absolutely, it would be misleading to say that my permanent smile didn’t

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 Episode 7 Review – ‘Welcome to the Jungle’

Jessie Robertson reviews the seventh episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 3…

In my opinion, any episode with Grodd in it is a win and a good episode – and make no mistake, this episode was ambitious as hell and I have to sort of applaud just on the sheer audacity of all the issues it tries to tackle here, but I’m not convinced (even in my tired as hell state) that it all worked.

Grodd as an allegory for the perils of war? Nate “Going All Dr. Phil on your Ass” with Rory? Martin convening his own council this week, ala The Flash? Yep, all this and more. So, Grodd was the anachronism this week and he’s in Vietnam. But, instead of just being a Predator-like monster (and yes, Nate did give Rory the alias “Schwarzenegger”) he does what Grodd does: he establishes a group of followers.

TV Families To Be Thankful For This Holiday Season

TV Families To Be Thankful For This Holiday Season
In this digital age of infinite screens and streams is an opportunity for liberation: Specifically, liberation from the families that we did not have the luxury of choosing. In 2017, Netflix and other platforms have been kind when it comes to giving us a glimpse at perhaps preferable family lives. So this Thanksgiving, it’s time we give thanks to the TV families who’ve been there for us no matter what — because, you know, they’re fictional.

The Byers (“Stranger Things”)

Despite the bloodthirsty monsters and suffocating slime, “Stranger Things” is all about the power of family. The writers kept their focus on the relationships between friends and family, and the extent that people endure in order to protect the ones they love. The Byers may not have the best luck in the world, but through every strange twist and turn they never once turned their backs on each other.
