Pick-Ups for the Week of July 5, 2016

Welcome to a new edition of Pick-Ups!

I hope all of you had a nice 4th of July celebration this weekend and saw some new movies. I’ve been in binge mode lately, watching anything and everything as much as possible on top of doing other things. As Bill always says, there just isn’t enough time in the day. That won’t stop me from trying though. [Read on here...]

Rifftrax Live! MST3K Reunion Review

For many fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000, getting the crew aboard the Satellite of Love, as well as the mad scientists way down in Deep 13, all together for a reunion wasn’t ever likely to become a reality. There were lots of factors at play keeping it from happening, many of which stem from the relationships and the “alleged” goings-on behind the scenes of the show.

Many of the cast members had also gone their various ways to pursue other projects after the show went off the air in 1999, not to mention that it would only have been relegated to a convention appearance of some sort. In many ways, it was indeed a long-shot that it would ever happen. [Read on here...]

Pick-Ups for the Week of May 31, 2016

Welcome to a new edition of Pick-Ups!

Thank you for tuning in. This past week, I caught a screening of The Nice Guys and I’m happy to report that it’s one of my favorite films of the year. Movie studios need to ignore its not-so-great box office reception and continue to let Shane Black write and direct more movies, in my opinion. He’s done very few, and that needs to change because they’ve all been excellent, especially this new one. [Read on here...]

Pick-Ups for the Week of May 23, 2016

Welcome to a new edition of Pick-Ups!

Thank you for tuning in. Sorry for my absence, but I’ve been on a bit of a vacation. My Mom came down to visit with us, so our focus was on spending some time with her.

While she was here, we did manage to catch Keanu and Captain America: Civil War at the theater. Both were enjoyable and definitely going out and seeing if you haven’t yet (I’m sure most of you have seen the latter movie by now). [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…]

Pick-Ups for the Week of February 1, 2016

Welcome back for a new edition of Pick-Ups!

Thank you for joining me. This week I’m going to tackle a few Blu-ray titles from 2015 that we’ve missed here at the site... and don’t worry, not all of it will be horror. I’ve actually got some good movies that were released last year for you to check out. I thought I’d also let you know that I’m working on a column that’s Lord of the Rings related. I’m not sure when I’ll have that up for you, but hopefully sometime soon.  [Read on here...]

Welcome back to a new edition of Pick-Ups!

Thanks for joining me this week for a new edition of Scream Factory Catch-Up, where I attempt to get ahead on some of Scream Factory’s Blu-ray releases. They release content so frequently that it’s sometimes difficult to keep up with it all (not that I’m complaining).  [Read on here...]

Pick-Ups for the Week of January 11, 2016

Welcome back to a new edition of Pick-Ups!

Ok, I’m back finally after a holiday break. I hope you enjoyed yourself as safely as possible and got lots of goodies to sort through (I know I did).

I also hope you managed to go out and see a few movies. How about that Force Awakens, huh? Oh, and The Hateful Eight in 70mm? Wow, what a great year for going to the cinema.  [Read on here…]
