The Secret of the Sword

Image
"I've got that flying horsey in my sight" He-Man & the Masters of the Universe was a massive hit toy line and a massive hit animated TV series. He-Man ruled the airwaves in the 80s and it would only make sense to not only make a feature length theatrical film but also a new spin-off series with a new character! The film follows Price Adam/He-Man as he embarks on the search for his twin sister. Turns out that a new villain by the name of Hordak had kidnapped He-Man's twin sister shortly after birth and taken here to another dimension on a planet called Etherea. No one knows what happened to the little girl, Adora. But, with this information and with a magical sword, He-Man is on his way to find Princess Adora.  What much can be said of "The Secret of the Sword", it's not necessarily a film for cinemas as there is nothing special enough about the movie for it to warrant a theatrical release, other than the length of the film. The animation remains the

The Import Corner Presents: The Mummy (1959) (U.K. Import) Blu-ray Review + Screenshots

Image
The Mummy is a decent horror film that actually makes the Mummy scary. The blu-ray from Lionsgate U.K. is great in the audio/video department, but the special features are a bit unfocused.

Suck it Hunger Games!: The Belko Experiment Blu-ray Review + Screenshots

Image
Even though very few saw the film in the theater, The Belko Experiment is very good film that surpassed my expectations and entertained me for an hour and a half. The film is funny, sad, horrific, violent, bloody, and poignant. It may not be an important film, but it sure as hell a damn good one.

Image
Lionsgate has finally given the fans what they have been asking for for the longest time: An unrated version of Return of the Living Dead 3 in 1080p. With the Vestron Collector's Series, Lionsgate has done just that.

Top to Bottom: The Films of Peter Jackson

Image
Top to Bottom is a series that I run over at Letterboxd where I do a run down of a director's films from best to worst (or Top to Bottom) Today we are going to be taking a look at the films of Peter Jackson, the New Zealander who broke into American cinemas with 1994's Heavenly Creatures and the hit the motherload by adapting the Lord of the Rings books into an incredibly successful trilogy of films. So here is Peter Jackson's films ranked Top to Bottom: 1.) Braindead (or Dead Alive as it known in the States) Considered one of the goriest films of all time, Braindead is madness put onto the screen. A zombie film that has yet to be topped in the gore department as well as set pieces, Braindead tells the story of a man who has to become a hero after his elderly mother dies from rat monkey bite (just go with it) and comes back from the dead. She infects one person and the chain goes on and on until the house is swarming with zombies. Braindead is one of the c

Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. Blu-ray Review + Screenshots- Troma

Image
Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. may not be the best Troma film ever (I am looking at you Tromeo and Juliet), but that doesn't make it a bad film. It still has enough going for it to make it an entertaining film.

Payback Time Triple Feature: Blind Fury (1990)/ Silent Rage (1982)/ White Line Fever (1975) Blu-ray Review + Screenshots- Mill Creek

Image
Blind Fury is a solid action film highlighted by an amazing fight scene between Rutger Hauer and Sho Kosugi. Silent Rage is a wannabe slasher film starring Chuck Norris. White Line Fever is your typical "Man Against the Establishment" film highlighted by a really good performance by Jan Michael Vincent.

Madhouse aka There Was A Little Girl (1981) Blu-ray Review- Arrow Video

Image
For all that is done well in the film, Madhouse is a mess of a film, one that wants to scare us, but fails to do so. That being said, Madhouse is not a total waste of a film. There are some scenes that play very well and the dog is used very well. Arrow has done a nice job with the film, all things considered.

I want everyone to note that there are a massive amount of spoilers in this article. I didn't want to do it, but I felt that to get my point across I needed to talk about events that happen in latter episodes. You have been warned.

You Know I Hate The Brown Word: Serial Mom: Collector's Edition Blu-ray Review + Screenshots- Scream Factory

Image
Scream Factory brings us this underrated gem of a film from the Prince of Puke, John Waters. Serial Mom is a comedic look at our obsession with true crime and our worshiping of murderers, rapists, and other heinous crimes. Released the same year as Natural Born Killers, Serial Mom pulls no punches and delivers a funny, though provoking film that will have you laughing for days
