‘Dead or Alive Trilogy’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

1 hour ago

When you allow yourself to be immersed in the world of Takashi Miike you do so with the knowledge that you are going to be taken to some really messed up places. Then of course he tricks you and gives you something completely different. The Dead or Alive Trilogy is an example of three films where Miike takes you to the absurd, but also to the surprisingly sentimental.

Starting with Dead or Alive, we have the battle between Yakuza Ryuuichi vs Detective Jojima (Shô Aikawa). Ryu and his small group are looking to take over the Shinjuku underworld by taking out the Chinese and Japanese mafia kings. The only person who stands in his way is Jojima. While this battle is raging, we see the connection with family, which is a connection between the three films of the trilogy.

With Dead or Alive, the film starts in a way to »

Latest ‘Baywatch’ Trailer Released

2 hours ago

Zac Efron. Dwayne Johnson. Muscles. Beach. Zac Efron’s and Dwayne Johnson’s muscles at a beach…

Now that we objectified male actors for a change, let’s dive deep into Baywatch, a Seth Gordon film that’s set to be released on May 28 of this year. Judging just from Gordon’s previous work on Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief, it looks funny, and it looks good.

Move over David Hasselhoff! Dwayne Johnson takes over his role as Mitch Buchanan, the super hunky main lifeguard who now has to deal with a new recruit, Matt Brody, and his sporadic ways. Originally played by David Charvet in the television series, this new lifeguard is, surprise, played by Zac Efron. Together, the two must learn to overcome their differences after they find some underground crime ring that could potentially destroy the Bay.

‘Admins’ Review

3 hours ago

Stars: Jay Saunders, Doug Henderson, Rebecca Wahls, Devon Brookshire, Dylan Hares, Trevor Desaussure, Joe Hansard | Written by Eric Espejo, Korosh Karimi | Directed by Aaron Goodmiller

Glengarry Glen Ross, Clerks, A Few Good Men, The Big Short, Office Space and Waiting. What do these flicks have in common? No matter the genre they fall in they all have great writing, great dialogue and superb execution of both these factors from there core cast. While Admins may be a low budget independent movie it has all these key ingredients and deserves your attention.

Since movies like Clerks and Office Space hit our screens and gave us a real good look into work life culture, many movies have came and went since that tried to capture that magic but more often than not they fail because they lack the witty dialogue or lead cast delivery. Aaron Goodmiller and Eric Espejo have achieved a »

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ gets 3 new posters & a trailer!

4 hours ago

The first collaboration between Marvel Studios and Sony, Spider-Man: Homecoming takes the iconic webslinger back to his roots. We’ve already had a sneak preview of Tom Holland’s take on the classic character in Captain America: Civil War, an appearance that seemed to hit the right note between fun and heroic – much moreso than the previous Spidey movies… As these three new posters  And new trailer also capture so well!

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself »

First images of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, Tomb Raider

6 hours ago

Taking its cue from the rebooted video game franchise, the new Tomb Raider film is set to tell the story of a young and untested Croft fighting to survive her first adventure. Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) stars as Lara Croft this time round, under the direction of The Wave‘s Roar Uthaug – who had this to say about the film:

Being a longtime fan of the game, it’s important to me to honor the Lara Croft legacy and capture that spirit. It’s great to know that there’s such a passionate global fan base for Lara and her world, and our commitment to that will be evident in our movie. What’s different about this “Tomb Raider” movie is that it’s an origin story for the big screen, focusing not only on Lara’s strength and physical accomplishments but her humanity. We see Lara as a young woman, »

Competition: Win new “FrightFest Presents” release ‘My Father Die’

7 hours ago

To celebrate the release of My Father Die – out now on Digital Download and available on DVD/VOD 3rd April – we are giving away a copy on DVD courtesy of FrightFest Presents and Icon Film.

Part revenge thriller, part pure horror, writer/director Sean Brosnan’s debut is an all-out assault on the senses that might not be for the faint-hearted, but is heartily recommended to those who like their films full throttle, adrenalin fuelled and cranked up to 11.

After garnering rave reviews at SXSW last year, My Father Die went on to play on the opening night at the prestigious 2016 London FrightFest, marking out Brosnan as an assured and gifted writer/director and his debut film as a full-blooded and unmissable revenge thriller.

‘Pieces’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

27 March 2017 10:01 AM, PDT

Stars: Christopher George, Lynda Day George, Frank Brana, Edmund Purdom, Ian Sera, Paul L. Smith, Jack Taylor, Gerard Tichy, May Heatherly | Written by Dick Randall, Roberto Loyola | Directed by Juan Piquer Simón

Pieces is one of those movies that horror fans instantly fall in love with. While some would write it off as just another bad movie, others will love those moments of unintentional humour, especially from the dubbed version. This is what makes the Arrow Video Pieces: Limited Edition release on Blu-ray so much fun.

When a murderer stars killing off female students on a Boston college campus, the bodies soon start piling up. With body parts missing it seems that the killer is putting forming an interesting puzzle, but can they be stopped before they complete their work?

With a killer that is straight out of the Giallo genre, but a chainsaw that brings even more gore, »

‘Alien and Predator Figure Collection: Pvt. Hudson’ Review

27 March 2017 8:01 AM, PDT

After looking at the Xenomorph last week for Eaglemoss’ Alien and Predator Figure Collection it seems fitting to look at another iconic character from the Alien franchise. This week it is a certain character that may have proclaimed “Game Over!” a little too soon, but was a hero none the less.

When we first saw the marines in Aliens, James Cameron was able to present us with a motley crew that each stood out in their own way. Private Hudson, played by the late great Bill Paxton was one marine who appeared to be cocky, and all mouth. When the Xenomorphs first attacked, gaining an advantage he was the first to proclaim “game over man! game over…” but when push came to shove he showed the true courage that made him an iconic character.

Looking at the model that Eaglemoss have created for the collection, we see Hudson in a »

Stars: Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Mackenzie Gray, Scott Lawrence, Katie Aselton, Tatyana Forrest, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Amber Midthunder | Created by Noah Hawley

Legion has been good at keeping its secrets, sometimes to an annoying level. Now though as we reach the end of the first season we come to the episode that provides most of the answers, setting us up for what appears to be an explosive finale.

With David (Dan Stevens) trapped deep in his mind, Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) is upping the stakes on taking over his body. With Lenny’s true identity finally revealed, Cary (Bill Irwin) and Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement) discuss how to defeat the new enemy while Syd (Rachel Keller) works to free the rest of the group, including David before it is too late.

What we are given in this episode of Legion is the perfect episode. We are »

Movies to Show My Son: ‘The Sandlot’

27 March 2017 4:01 AM, PDT

Today I begin a new series that combines my fondness for film with the joy I have of being a parent. Like most geek dads or dads in general I am eager to share the things I have a passion for with my son. Growing up I can remember my dad doing the same. As a proud Air Force veteran with a father who made his living working for the Rail Road my dad grew up with his own passions and hobbies. Some of my greatest memories as a child are the times I spent seeing my dad gushing at train museums, getting lost in amazement at air shows, or simply try to gather as much information as possible about World War II. Now as I am closing in on the two year mark of being a dad I am beginning to brainstorm on what movies are must sees for my son. »
