The House That Dripped Blood is a fun enough anthology movie that is mostly entertaining seeing this cast which includes Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Denholm Elliott and Jon Pertwee, even if they’re not all in the same scenes together.
The 15:17 to Paris is easily one of the worst movies of not only this year, but the past few years, and just a complete misfire for the usually great Clint Eastwood. While casting the real life heroes as themselves was a mistake, there were numerous other issues at play.
Game Night might not be one day some comedy classic but it is an awfully fun movie that features plenty of laughs and a entertaining ensemble cast led way by Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams and, albeit a small part, Michael C. Hall.
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is a fun sci-fi/comedy/fantasy excelling with the chemistry between Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter as well as a great performance from George Carlin in a supporting role.
Black Panther isn’t a great comic book but a culturally significant one and does at least hold some entertainment value with a so-so plot though the villain portrayed by Michael B. Jordan was certainly the highlight.
12 Strong is a well done action-war-drama that tells an unknown story since the mission was previously classified. The performances from the core cast is well done with Chris Hemsworth showing off the grit and charm for the role and Michael Shannon always does.
This Drama 4-in-1 Collection is another fine compilation from Mill Creek especially considering the low SRP and getting some at least okay John Travolta movies, though I believe these all were already released on Blu-ray in the past.
Batman Ninja was certainly an interesting idea and the anime was generally great to look at, but inserting Batman and company into that world never quite worked and the finale was a bit too gonzo for my taste.
Fifty Shades Freed isn’t bad enough to be fun and the lack of chemistry between Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan makes it so much worse to watch, thankfully this is the shortest one of the series, so there’s that.
The 80s Overdrive: 6 Movie Collection is just another re-package job by Mill Creek, a few triple dipping at this point. I guess if you didn’t already own any of these movies, and considering its low SRP, might be worth picking up, otherwise skip.
Given the renewed interest in the shark attack subgenre of horror, it’s easy to see why the studio would make a sequel to Deep Blue Sea, a movie that often gets forgotten. As it is, the sequel is just plain bad with a plot that mirrors the original with some tweaks.
No Down Payment is a well done and underappreciated movie about 4 families living in 1950s suburbia and features some great performances, particularly Joanne Woodward, Tony Randall and Cameron Mitchell.
