The Return Of The Living Dead Blu-ray Review

The Return Of The Living Dead is a satire of zombie films, particularly Night Of The Living Dead and it’s unofficial sequels. It is a hilarious take that at the same time can spook you in it’s own right. Here the zombies are a little different. They talk! “Brains, I want to eat your brains!” Also they are not easily killed by a gunshot to the head. The movie is filled with 80’s cheesiness, but somehow pulls off horror as well as the much-intended humor. Ultimately it’s a very good zombie flick that you should check out. Just be warned you might die laughing!

Open Water 2: Adrift Blu-ray Review

Open Water 2: Adrift is an unusual sequel, not that there’s anything wrong with that. The main appeal from it’s predecessor is left to tread its own waters with a different storyline. My thoughts on having a bigger cast this time out is that you sacrifice true horror for a different type of genre that is much harder to categorize. It’s like the different between Ridley’s Alien and Cameron‘s Aliens though we don’t get the action here either. Which is better? Hard to say, most have their own personal opinion on it. I liked the characters this time out, though there were a couple who annoyed me. I liked the original Open Water as well and enjoyed it’s horror, but this one felt like the better movie overall. The great thing about this release is you get two films in one. Enjoy!


The Losers Blu-ray Review

The Losers is about a group of soldiers sent in to kill a man and rescue a bunch of children, but they are betrayed by their boss. Thought to be dead they maintain a low profile until they come across a woman with a plan. They then seek revenge on their former boss for betraying them in the most brutal way imaginable. Fun and action-packed, this could be seen as a less violent, less stars version of The Expendables. Pretty good, underrated movie!

$5 A Day Blu-ray Review

$5 A Day is a fascinating movie about a father (Christopher Walken) who constantly lies and boasts that he can live off of $5 a day. He tells his disbelieving son that he is dying of cancer and needs to go to Mexico to get special treatment there, but he needs a driver to take him there. $5 A Day is a rare movie about father-son bonding with some comedy and drama thrown in for good measure. This would make a nice rental or a cheap buy. One of Christopher Walken’s best performances in a while.
