Team Sonic Racing

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?

SHAFT 2019

Samuel L. Jackson returns as John Shaft in the movie Shaft, the sequel to his 2000 movie Shaft, based on the original 1971 movie Shaft which starred Richard Roundtree as John Shaft. Ya following me so far? Roundtree’s original 3 movies had Shaft taking on the Mafia, human traffickers, assassins, and locating some hidden cash to the sum of $250,000. Hey, it’s the 1970’s, that was a LOT of money back then. Samuel Jackson took on the role of the original Shafts son. Jackson had to have been the best choice to play the character, he certainly had the attitude for it. Shaft has always been that badass, take charge ladies man with the best soundtrack and plenty of bad guys to bust up.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Replicas Is A Bad Clone of Better Sci-Fi Films

Replicas will remind you of some classic sci-fi and horror, from Frankenstein to Minority Report to I, Robot. It doesn’t make the film great, as it fails to realize its...

The Bottom Line: Sam Worthington stars in a solid, but not spectacular, crime thriller

Man on a Ledge is an entertaining thriller, even if it tests the bounds of logic at every turn. The cast itself does an admirable job raising the tension, and...
