The Street Fighter Collection (1974)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 2nd, 2019 - Blu-ray and DVD

The Street Fighter films have stood the test of time for a reason as Sonny Chiba’s magnetic ferocity simply cannot be denied. Shout! Factory’s three-disc set features magnificent presentations of all three motion pictures, and while special features are relatively sparse, what is here is still pretty great. A collection that fans of the series certainly will want to add to their personal libraries.

Green Book (2018) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 12th, 2019 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

From this point forward Green Book will always be judged by its Best Picture win at the 91st Academy Awards more than it will be assessed via the weighing of its various strengths and weaknesses.

The Return of the Vampire (1943)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 10th, 2019 - Blu-ray and DVD

For fans of classic 1930s and ‘40s horror, The Return of the Vampire is close to essential. It’s a quite entertaining and imaginative riff on both vampire and werewolf legends and features a wonderfully droll star turn by an elegantly magnetic Bela Lugosi.

Valentine (2001) – Collector’s Edition

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 10th, 2019 - Blu-ray and DVD

Jamie Blanks’ Valentine has aged rather well. A movie I didn’t care for at the time of its release, I now see a lot more f merit this slasher throwback than I admittedly did back in 2001.

Creed II (2018) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 5th, 2019 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Creed II feels more like a Rocky sequel than it does a direct follow-up to 2015’s Academy Award-nominated Creed, but that doesn’t make it any less entertaining.

The Guilty (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 5th, 2019 - Blu-ray and DVD

Gustav Möller’s The Guilty is one of 2018 best films. It was a worthy submission for Best Foreign Language Film by Denmark, and even though it didn’t ultimately score a nomination that doesn’t make it any less stellar.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 29th, 2019 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is growing on me. It’s still a strange movie that has way too much going on and one that never quite gets a handle on all of its various story elements. But it’s made with imagination and flair, and as a purely visual exercise much of it truly is delightful.

10 to Midnight (1983) – Collector’s Edition

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 24th, 2019 - Blu-ray and DVD

Ugly and uncomfortable, 10 to Midnight is certainly one of the seedier and more abhorrent exploitation thrillers star Charles Bronson made during the twilight of his career for Cannon Films. But it’s also one of his more fascinating efforts for the studio, its edgy, thought-provoking script a true descent into emotionally-deranged terror that packs far more of a viscerally upsetting punch than anticipated.

The Critters Collection (1986-1992)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 12th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

There’s a reason the Critters series has remained so popular for the past three-plus decades, the first two films winningly inventive and hugely enjoyable even if they’re also undeniably slight and purposefully silly.
