Although I was never an uber fan of The Evil Dead, this Ash vs. Evil Dead was a fun series bringing back fan favorite Bruce Campbell that made him a fanboy household name and Campbell is in his element. For whatever reason it was cancelled after only three seasons but those were hella entertaining.

Drag Me to Hell might not be as good as Raimi’s Evil Dead Trilogy but still hell of a fun time with some truly laugh-out-loud scenes and good performances by Alison Lohman, Justin Long and even David Paymer in a small role.

Darkman is a cheesy but really fun throwback to the B-movie horror days of Hollywood. Liam Neeson is wonderful and turns in a great performance considering the amount of make-up he had to work under while Sam Raimi, far from perfect direction, shows what would come with his Spider-Man franchise. Although not a great movie, it’s still well worth watching.

The Spider-Man 2 Mastered in 4k Blu-ray release looks good but is it worth the price of an upgrade (around $15)? I don’t think so especially since, as with the other 4k releases none of the features were ported over. Still, if you own the proper equipment and have made the determination to dive into the field, this is a top title worth having in your collection.

With Evil Dead Fede Alvarez and company, along with producers Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, were on an uphill battle remaking/rebooting a cult classic and in some instances, it works but in many others, it came across as another horror movie amongst hundreds of others with higher production values. The Blu-ray released by Sony has some superficial featurettes but the highlight is a cast and director commentary which helps expand more on the behind-the-scenes stories.

Oz the Great and Powerful is a fine piece of film making with Raimi and company doing a fine job at least tying it with The Wizard of Oz, although a side effect being, similar to the Star Wars prequels, you kind of delude the mystery of the Wizard by revealing it in a prequel. Even so, though, it’s an enjoyable and entertaining film that doesn’t quite hit its mark yet still passed the time nicely.

Spider-Man is an OK superhero movie, satisfying enough debut for the web-slinger but that’s not to say it didn’t have more than one flaw. As far as this new re-release goes, the “Mastered in 4K” transfer is wonderful providing rich video and audio transfers but unfortunately, as with the others, none of the features have been ported over and the cost, while only $15 (at the time of this writing), it’s really not worth the upgrade at this point.

Indian Summer is a great film that hits all the right notes. It not only brings out the nostalgia for anybody who has attended summer camp but the story is well rounded with the right balance of comedy and drama. The cast is also pitch perfect with the highlights coming from Bill Paxton, Diane Lane and Alan Arkin.
