Lionsgate Is Reviving The ‘Saw’ Franchise!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 9th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

MPW-69406

If you’re a fan of horror movies, there is a 100% chance that you’ve heard of the ‘Saw‘ franchise from James Wan and Leigh Whannell. What began as a low-budget festival surprise soon became an annual tradition to expect a new film in the series every year around Halloween that involved new ways to torture people. The year 2010 came along, which was the release of ‘Saw 3D‘, labeled as The Final Chapter, but of course there was a wide open possibility for the franchise to continue.  Lucky for us, now it is.

Hey guys, Jana here,

dust_board_game

For every failing ‘Battleship‘ board game that is adapted into a feature, there is a successful ‘Clue‘ in the mix, as well. Adaptations are always a tricky thing but on occasion they can work. Lionsgate is hoping to find success with their latest acquisition, the tabletop game and graphic novel ‘Dust‘.

Hi, Bryan Here…

As we have previously reported, there is going to be a ‘Leprechaun’ remake.  This time, Lionsgate is receiving help from WWE (yes, that WWE), to make the film.  We already knew that WWE’s character ‘Hornswoggle’ (Dylan Postl) will be playing the Leprechaun that there will be two films at least for this new reboot of the franchise.

Hi Bryan Here….

Production company Lionsgate has teamed with Kevin Smith and his SModcast pictures company to help distribute his latest and greatest thriller picture, ‘Red State’.  If you remember from Sundance this past year in a what turned out to be joke auction for his film, Kevin Smith paid himself $20 dollars for the theatrical distribution rights for his ‘Red State’.

The Peanut Butter Falcon – Blu-ray Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Oct 30th, 2019

The Peanut Butter Falcon is a stone-cold stunner of a movie where an unexpected friendship blossoms between two people on their way to a pro-wrestling school. It’s the most enchanting movie I’ve seen in a long time. Lionsgate delivers a great 1080p HD transfer along with a prime-sounding DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio mix. Bonus features are scarce on this one, but the movie speaks enough for itself. Highly Recommended!

In a surprisingly thrilling movie franchise that started in 2014, the John Wick character and films have made a significant impact on movie-going fans and the action genre. Now into its third film titled John Wick 3: Parabellum (Latin for “Prepare for War”), the filmmakers have spared no expense and creativity in giving us the best action movie for Keanu Reeves and this creative universe they created only five years ago. I would expect situations to get tiresome in a third adventure, but that’s not the case at all here. There are so many different aspects to the fight scenes that we haven’t seen before, along with some great, new John Wick assassin universe knowledge that makes this unique and deadly world seem much bigger than it is.

‘Midsommar’ Blu-ray Announced!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 19th, 2019

One of the best films of the year is coming to Blu-ray in time for Halloween. ‘Midsommar‘, directed by Ari Aster (Hereditary) will be coming to Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy on October 8th from Lionsgate. It will be available digitally and On-Demand a bit before that on September 24th. Unfortunately, this is a bare-bones release without the talked about 3-hour director’s cut of the movie. I guess they’re milking it for a future all-out release.

‘Suspiria’ – Blu-ray Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 19th, 2019

THE FILM

(Film Review Portion Written by Dan Moran)

The general plot of Suspiria is that Suzy, an American ballerina, enrolls in a Berlin dance academy which is actually a front for a coven of witches. Dakota Johnson plays Suzy and is a revelation in the part since my big dumb brain still associates her with her lifeless performance in 50 Shades of Grey. Tilda Swinton (as usual) puts in some great work as Madame Blanc as just caring enough yet always with an ominous undercurrent to all of her lines. Swinton also dons a ton of makeup to play a Doctor who becomes interested in the coven after one of the academy’s dance members tells him of the evil there before she disappears.

National Lampoon’s Van Wilder‘ came out sixteen years ago and more or less re-lit the fire for National Lampoon. This also paved the way for Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds, as this was his first feature film in a leading role. Some of the jokes don’t hit too well in our current politically correct culture, but it’s silly enough to have fun with it. It’s just unfortunate that the filmmakers went the gross-out humor route solely and failed to develop these good characters, but that seemed to be the case in 2002. Also, it’s unfortunate that this is not a new remaster or transfer. This is the same video and audio presentations from the 2007 Blu-ray release, which of course had its problems. I imagine Lionsgate is trying to make a quick and easy dollar for the release of ‘Deadpool 2‘, hence this re-release that has no new extras on it. Still, if you’re a fan of the film and want the Digital Copy, this is a way to get it.

4K UHD Review: ‘Hell or High Water’!

by Bryan Kluger on Feb 19th, 2018

THE FILM


(The film portion was written by Liz Tramer)

Director David Mackenzie’s latest film, Hell or High Water, is a perfect example of how slow and steady wins the race.  The film is a little slow to start, but once it gets going, it’s fantastic. The story centers around two brothers, Toby  Howard (Chris Pine) and Tanner Howard (Ben Foster) who are desperately trying to save their mother’s farm and keep it in the family. The brothers are literally under the gun to find the money and decide the quickest way to make the deadline is to rob banks. Toby is intelligent, calm, cool and collected and the brains behind the operation. Tanner is an ex con hothead who relishes the crime spree and does little to control either his rage or his inclination toward violence.

4K UHD Review: ‘Wonder’!

by Bryan Kluger on Feb 8th, 2018

THE FILM


Back in 2012, author R.J. Palacio released her novel ‘Wonder‘, which caught on worldwide quickly and became one of the most heartfelt and dare I say it “wonderful” stories of recent memory. It was only a matter of time before it was optioned into a movie. Luckily Lionsgate picked it up where author/director Stephen Chbosky (Perks of Being a Wallflower) signed on to take on the task in adapting this fantastic story for the big screen. ‘Wonder‘ follows a young boy named Auggie (Jacob Tremblay) who was born with Treacher Collins syndrome, which is a genetic disorder that causes facial disfiguration at birth, which can cause problems with hearing, eyesight, and breathing.

Hey guys, Jana here, 

Can one possibly get enough ‘John Wick‘? The answer to that question is “Hell No!!!” Well Starz and Lionsgate TV have joined forces to bring us ‘The Continental‘, an serial adaptation of the films inspired by the film and occasionally featuring the Baba Yaga himself, Keanu Reeves. It will be set in the universe created for 2014’s juggernaut ‘John Wick‘ and the 2017 sequel ‘John Wick: Chapter 2‘. These films established a dynamic world and more than got the ball rolling to make audiences demand more. There is a tertiary film in the series standing in pre-production now, eyeing a 2019 release date.

Ethan Hawke has ’24 Hours To Live’ on Blu-ray!

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 12th, 2018

Why did this movie not get a major theatrical release? I have no idea. This movie called ‘24 Hours To Live‘ stars Ethan Hawk and produced by the guys who helped make ‘John Wick‘. I mean, this has gold written all over it. Not sure what bonus features will be available, but there is none listed at the moment. Let’s hope that changes. You can currently see the film On Demand, but the Blu-ray will be available on February 6th.

One of the most heart-warming movies of the year, ‘Wonder‘ is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray and Digital HD very soon. In fact, you’ll be able to watch the film digitally as soon as January 30th.

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 2nd, 2018

 

Nothing is over when it comes to the ‘Saw‘ franchise and Jigsaw. The new installment in that horror series, simply titled ‘Jigsaw‘ is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on January 23rd. You’ll be able to watch it digitally as early as January 9th. They brothers who made the zombie film ‘Undead‘ and the vampire film ‘Daybreakers‘ sat in the director’s chair this time around with more insane bloody traps and more twists and turns than ever before. There are tons of extras, including audio commentary and behind the scenes featurettes. There is also a Dolby Atmos audio track, which I hope is demo worthy. To hear blood and guts fall from the ceiling could be super awesome. More details below.

One of my favorite and Top movies of 2017 is coming to Blu-ray on January 23rd. Of course, I’m talking about ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer‘ from director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster). The film stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, and Barry Keoghan. I have described this movie as a sibling to Stanley Kurbick’s film ‘Eyes Wide Shut‘, because of the glaring similarities. Not only is it similar, but it’s a damn good film that stays with you long after you watch it. There looks to be only one extra here and no 4K UHD release yet, but let’s hope that changes. I can’t wait to watch this again and  relive the awkwardness and suspenseful situations this movie delivers.
