Like most horror anthologies, the first season of Creepshow is unsurprisingly hit-and-miss. But the hits, most notably “House of the Head,” “The Finger” and “The Man in the Suitcase,” are pretty terrific, while the misses are still just amusing enough to not get all that upset that they’re not nearly as strong as some of their counterparts are.
Holy freaking cow the technical aspects of this 4K Ultra HD version of Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds are nothing less than dazzling. From an audio-visual standpoint, this disc is perfect.
V: The Final Battle is worth a look. While undeniably somewhat disappointing, it’s still a fun bit of retro television science fiction that sometimes takes some fairly shocking narrative risks that were well ahead of their time.
Just Mercy is a good film. Destin Daniel Cretton does a fine job balancing the many dramatic dynamics of his film, rarely allowing the proceedings to dip too far into maudlin melodrama or schmaltzy cliché, while at the same time Jaimie Foxx delivers one of the best performances of his Oscar-winning career.
I still really like Sophia Takal’s down-and-dirty take on Black Christmas. It gets better for me with each viewing.
Let me be frank, if you’re thinking about buying this new edition of A Quiet Place you’re either grabbing this title for the first time, upgrading from the previous Blu-ray or are a collector of the Mondo X SteelBook line. These are all excellent reasons to pick this release up.
Pet Sematary II is nuts.
The 4K Ultra HD release of Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island is magnificent. The film has never looked or sounded better. I just wish I enjoyed watching it more.
There is nothing subtle about Mon Mon Mon Monsters!.
