First Cow (Blu-ray)

Check out our review of First Cow on Blu-ray! 

Honest Thief

Well, here we go again, another Liam Neeson action flick. No matter how many times I see his name alongside movies like this I just don’t see Neeson as an “action star” which is kinda odd because he’s been doing action-ish movies since the late 80’s. From the co-creator of Emmy-nominated series Ozark, thriller Honest Thief showcases Liam Neeson in a heartfelt tale of redemption, packed with fights, chases, and explosions centered on one man's mission to make things right for the sake of love.

Love and Monsters

Paramount’s Love and Monsters is skipping theaters and coming straight to VOD this week. Filled with witty humor and impressive monster action, it’s definitely one to check out. Here’s our full review. 

Black Sun (Between Earth and Sky #1)

A god will return When the earth and sky converge Under the black sun In the holy city of Tova, the winter solstice is usually a time for celebration and renewal, but this year it coincides with a solar eclipse, a rare celestial event proscribed by the Sun Priest as an unbalancing of the world. Meanwhile, a ship launches from a distant city bound for Tova and set to arrive on the solstice. The captain of the ship, Xiala, is a disgraced Teek whose song can calm the waters around her as easily as it can warp a man’s mind. Her ship carries one passenger. Described as harmless, the passenger, Serapio, is a young man, blind, scarred, and cloaked in destiny. As Xiala well knows, when a man is described as harmless, he usually ends up being a villain.

An Intense Monster Movie Worth Owning

Crawl manages to deliver an impressive creature feature that straddles the line between serious thriller and B-movie insanity. It doesn’t reach the goofy levels of direct-to-TV monster flicks, but its...
