Like some other recent DC Animation movies, JSA: WWII is a refreshing take on the superhero format, exploring a multiverse construct but in a way that’s genuine and loving with the material.
Isle of the Dead is newly available on Blu-ray from Warner Archive.
Produced by the great classic horror master Val Lewton, Isle of the Dead is one of three collaborations that paired the famed producer with actor Boris Karloff.
In The Earth is in theaters now.
With his newest film, director Ben Wheatley combines horror, science fiction, and mythology into an odd and compellingly watchable — if somewhat incomprehensible — journey into weirdness.
Researcher Martin Lowery (Joel Fry), accompanied by a park ranger Alma (Ellora Torchia), makes a foray deep into the wilderness to seek out his lost colleague and friend Olivia, a botanist who has gone radio silent.
Strange things are afoot in the woods, and it’s not long before the pair are wrapped up in a series of bizarre and dangerous encounters including an assault by unseen…

On March 11 2011, Japan was rocked by a massive 9.0 earthquake and its aftershocks. Besides devastating the Tohoku region, it also kicked off one of the history’s most terrifying nuclear incidents as the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant was unexpectedly flooded and incapacitated by the resultant tsunami.
The score for the new Mortal Kombat film is now available, releasing ahead of the film’s simultaneous theatrical and HBO NOW opening this Friday.
Soundtrack opener “Techno Syndrome 2021” is a modern EDM reimagining of the classic “Techno Syndrome” theme. Interestingly it seems to be a new composition, as opposed to a remix of the original.
The original, with its familiar cry of “Mortal Kombat!!”, is one of the most familiar and beloved techno tracks of all time. It’s closely associated to Paul W. S. Anderson’s 1995 film, invariably linked in many of our lizard brains to the New Line…
The Ten Commandments is new on 4K UHD Blu-ray this week from Paramount Pictures.
Even 65 years after its release, The Ten Commandments remains one of the biggest jewels in the crown of Paramount Pictures; a towering accomplishment of big budget filmmaking in the age of epics.
Director Cecil B. DeMille’s account of the story of Moses, a partial remake of his own 1923 silent picture of the same title, features an all-star cast, old-school epic storytelling, impressive special effects, and themes of freedom and faith that still resonate.
The Greatest Show on Earth is out today on ‘Paramount Presents’ Blu-ray, arriving alongside Paramount’s highly anticipated 4K release of The Ten Commandments.
These days, the combination of Cecil B. DeMille and Charlton Heston immediately brings to mind their biblical epic collaboration on the perennial favorite telling of the story of Moses, The Ten Commandments. But 4 years before a bearded Heston bid Yul Brynner’s Pharaoh to let his people go, the pair’s earlier endeavor together, The Greatest Show on Earth, had been a massive hit for Paramount — the studio’s biggest ever, in fact.
The circus has fallen to…

Stouthearted and sensitive, Manolo (Diego Luna) has a few simple goals: to honor his Sanchez family, play beautiful music on his guitarra, and to win the heart of Maria (Zoe Saldana), the girl…
Running Time is available on Blu-ray March 16 from Synapse Films.
1997's Running Time is a fascinatingly made film which I think may have been unfairly overlooked as among the indie crime boom which erupted after Pulp Fiction. Star Bruce Campbell has often cited the film as a personal favorite from his filmography, and it’s easy to see why.
