review: Dan Curtis’ Dracula

In 1974, Dan Curtis (Dark Shadows) made one of my all-time favorite Dracula films, starring Jack Palance (of City Slickers fame). Until now, it had been relegated to a mundane, out of print DVD version. But MPI Home Video has done us all a favor and re-released this classic on Bluray. It has been restored […]

movie review: CODE RED

More than seven decades after the Battle of Stalingrad, a mysterious nerve-gas created by Joseph Stalin unleashes an undead wave of terror through the streets of modern-day Bulgaria. World War II was raging across Europe when Stalin created a top-secret biochemical weapon that could decimate his enemies. Later, when the smoke cleared over Stalingrad, the […]

film review: 12 O’CLOCK BOYS

12 O’Clock Boys is an absolutely fabulous glimpse into the world of a young boy growing up in a rough neighborhood in Baltimore.

The Sidekick is the story of a past-his-prime superhero sidekick, Max McCabe (Benedict) that gets fired by his boss, Captain Wonder (Ron […]

Iron Man 3 review (spoilers)

  Going into Iron Man 3, I was pretty much giddy with excitement.  I’m pausing right now to warn you again of spoilers ahead.  So don’t say I didn’t warn you.  But I was amped up because the first two films in the series were fantastic.  And now they were adding the best villain from […]

GI Joe: Retaliation review (No Spoilers)

  I went to a late showing of GI Joe: Retaliation last night (March 29th, 2013). I saw the 2D showing because 3D makes me feel dizzy. My mood going in was anticipation. It wasn’t based on the commercials or actors or director or anything that makes most people excited to see a film. Instead, […]
