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. 

Cats & Dogs 3: Paws Unite!

Today, Cats & Dogs 3: Paws Unite! was released on Blu-Ray and DVD. Set in the same world as Cats & Dogs (2001), this film continues the story of cats and dogs getting up to covert activities while keeping humans oblivious to what's really going on. I got my hands on a copy of the film and I'm here to let you know if this unwanted and unasked-for sequel is worth checking out.
