My Boyfriend’s Back – Blu-ray Review

My Boyfriend's Back blu-ray box art

It’s always nice when a movie you remember from back in the day still holds up after several years. My Boyfriend’s Back is definitely one of those forgotten gems from the early 90’s that remains quite entertaining. That being said, my experience with film criticism today is a lot better than it was when I ...

Dinotopia: The Series – DVD Review

Artwork from Dinotopia DVD set

Dinotopia is not a good series by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a fairly interesting curiosity from an otherwise dull era of television. Although there are many issues with the show, it still manages to tell an interesting story while showing off some pretty good CGI effects and set design. Unfortunately, there ...

Spaced Invaders – Blu-ray Review

spacedinvaderscover

When I heard that Mill Creek was finally going to release one of the most underrated movies of my childhood on blu-ray, I was absolutely ecstatic.

You’re back? Waiting for more talk on dino DNA? Sweet. With the monstrous success of Jurassic Park, author Michael Crichton was pressed by both fans and Steven Spielberg to write a sequel to his book, and from there Spielberg would direct the film sequel. Between 1995 and 1997, The Lost World (taking inspiration from the book of the ...

A Retrospective 22 Years In The Making: Jurassic Park (1993)

AJPlogo1

After fourteen years of agonizing delay, Dinosaurs have finally returned to the cinema with Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the legendary Jurassic Park franchise. What are the odds that both of my favorite franchises, Godzilla and JP, would get re-introductions only a year apart? I suppose the ‘powers that be’ of geekdom are good to me. ...

Love & Mercy – Film Review

Header

Love & Mercy opens with the line “I was sitting in a crummy movie with my hands on my chin.” Luckily for Brian Wilson, this is not a crummy movie, thus sparing him from the indignity of seeing every reviewer make the obvious joke. Love & Mercy has no right being as good as it ...
