HBO is renowned for having some of the best shows on TV, so when a new series spins up on the network, you can generally expect a high level of quality. Ballers is no exception to this rule, and has brought a bit of sports dramedy into the rotation. Now, a few weeks before Season Two is set to air, we’re getting season one on Blu-ray.
Regression sort of slid into the cracks it seems, as it released with less fanfare than I would have expected. The film stars Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson (both of whom I am a fan of), and is directed by Alejandro Amenábar, who did another favorite horror film of mine, The Others. So was this film deserving a more pronounced release? Or is there a reason that it wasn’t hyped? Let’s find out.
Let’s face it, dolls are scary. Especially porcelain dolls. There’s something in the pale, lifeless faces (especially the eyes) that can peer down into your roots and set off that alarm that something isn’t quite right. So when The Boy came across my path, I was prepared for the worst… and I was a bit surprised.
With the title Sex, Murder, Art, you can’t help but be intrigued about what lies inside. Nekromantik 1 and 2, Der Todesking (The Death King), and Schramm are the films included in this set that was released recently by Cult Epics.
The set is a collection of work from the controversial director Jorg Buttgereit, a man responsible for one of the most bootlegged horror films of all time (Nekromantik), and for making people uncomfortable and borderline sick while watching his movies. He does shock and horror really well, and some of his themes go above and beyond when it comes to the taboo. So without further ado, let’s get into it.
Last week, I reviewed The Revenant‘s standard Blu-ray release. Earlier today I popped in the 4K version for a comparative review. The screenshots and movie review below are the same as the standard edition, since we are still trying to figure out how to get 4K screenshots. So, if you read the previous review, skip down to the Video Quality section, that’s where things get new. Now, without further ado, The Revenant 4K UHD.
Pieces has caused quite a stir in the Blu-ray community as of late, and not only because of the inclusion of a mini-puzzle featuring a naked woman. Nudity may be one exciting factor to this obscure 80’s horror flick, but the stellar transfer is what will make this release stand out in any collection
Forsaken brings Keifer and Donald Sutherland together for the first time as John Henry Clayton and his father, the Reverend of Fowler, Wyoming in 1872. Featuring a stellar cast including Demi Moore, Michael Wincott, Brian Cox, and directed by Jon Cassar (of “24” fame), this well acted and beautifully shot story is sure to become a modern day western classic. Let’s dive in.
Jane B. Par Agnes V. and Kung Fu Master! have been restored and brought to Blu-ray for the first time courtesy of Cinelicious Pics. Jane B. Par Agnes V. is a biopic of Jane Birkin, who has reached fame from her singing, acting, modeling, and being the muse for one of the most important figures in French popular music, Serge Gainsbourg. Kung Fu Master! is a fictional story of a single mother facing middle age who struggles with her feelings for a young boy who’s made her feel alive again. Both films offer something different and unique, but together they offer a complete look at Jane’s larger than life story.
