Welcome to a new edition of Pick-Ups!

Thanks for joining me. I’m back again this week to cover some more titles from various genres and labels that we’ve missed along the way, including comedy titles, science fiction, and horror.

Among the offerings will be great titles from the likes of Warner Home Video, Kino Lorber, Shout! and Scream Factory, Scorpion Releasing, and more.

As usual, we’ll be rolling each review out one at a time all week, so be sure to check back for new ones.  [Read on here…]

Pick-Ups for the Week of March 07, 2016

Welcome to a new edition of Pick-Ups!

Thanks for joining me. This week I’m going to focus on our distribution friends from across the pond (having also recently crossed the pond, as well), Arrow Video. So consider this an Arrow Video Catch-Up week.

And by the way, before we get into it, I didn’t get a chance to go see The Witch since my last column (in which I said I would), but hopefully, I will at some point. Right now I have my sights set on the newly-released Zootopia, which looks like a fun and refreshing bit of Disney animation. Anyways, moving on. [Read on here…]

We begin today with Tim’s last Pick-Ups Blu-ray review for this week: A look at Scream Factory’s The Curse/The Curse II: The Bite. Together, these two Z-grade flix were damn near enough to finally break our man’s sanity and send him into a late night reviewing rage (a genuine occupational hazard in this profession). Do check it out. LOL.

Meanwhile, Scream Factory has revealed that it’s working on Brian DePalma’s Raising Cain: Collector’s Edition, due on Blu-ray 6/28, along with a new Blu-ray edition of The Crush on 6/21. [Read on here…]

My Favorite Movies & Blu-rays of 2015

Well, I promised a couple of “Best of” lists, and here they are (I was a bit of an overachiever and got the lists done quickly, so... you’re welcome). Please keep in mind that this is simply my personal favorite movies or titles based on what I’ve actually seen throughout 2015 and it doesn’t necessarily represent both sides of the industry as a whole. This is, more or less, my favorite of the movies and Blu-ray Discs that I saw in 2015.  [Read on here...]
