Does Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled live up to the original PlayStation release, or did it go flat on the track a long time ago? Let's find out now….

Team Sonic Racing – REVIEW

Over the years, racing games have gone from once dominating every console to now being a genre that is running really low on fuel. That is until now, Sumo Digital and SEGA have not only created a fun Sonic game but they have turned me into a Sonic fan once again with Team Sonic Racing...let's dive in!

Us (Blu-Ray)

Jordan Peele’s deeply disturbing US arrives on 4K/Blu-Ray this week and while it’s light on bonus features, it’s a film that certainly values multiple viewings. Come inside for my full review of this week’s new release!

Men in Black: International

The Men in Black franchise has thus far subsisted on wacky tongue-in-cheek humor, sci-fi shenanigans, and the charisma between its opposite-attracts stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. But what happens when you bring in an entirely new set of actors?

A fun but generic addition to the franchise.

What's Good: Marvel finally gets a female-led film, Brie Larson is a good fit for her role, Samuel L. Jackson is never boring, fun swashbuckling plot, some funny moments, a...

Big eyes, slightly less big thrills.

Disembodied limbs fly across the screen in slow motion. Twisting in flight they spray a synthetic blue blood. A seedy underworld teems with nasty cyborgs, armed to the teeth with...

Vicious historical farce isn't for the faint of heart.

What's Good: Great performance by a great cast, technically compelling direction, lavish production, biting dialogue, witty presentation, perfect balance between comedy and tragedy, unbalanced delivery makes for a challenging picture...

Another movie to make you feel sorry for the current state of politics.

What's Good: Solid if not spectacular performances, interesting story derived from actual events, production really helps transport you to the 1980's, film provides different perspectives on a singular event, draws...

The more sophisticated heist movie.

What's Good: Impeccable direction by Steve McQueen, twisty Hitchcock-like plot leaves lots to analyze, powerful performances from three leading ladies, great supporting cast, emotionally mature subject matter makes an impact,...

An excessively underwhelming remake

What's Good: During the dance scenes everything is alright - it's artistic, haunting, and creative, well-rounded cast provide excellent performances, more than a few nods to the original film, interesting...

Well rounded, but not polished, spastic fantasy for the whole family

What's Good: Jack Black is Jack Black, the script can be funny at times, inspired production, interesting and meaningful story, Eli Roth knows horror, fun for all ages. ...

Mission accomplished

What's Good: Chocked full of adrenaline-pumping high-octane stunt-filled action sequences, Tom Cruise continues to impress as an action star, the rest of the cast is also up to task, more...
