Home Again – December’s Blu-Ray Releases

Welcome to Home Again, where each and every Tuesday I’ll be running down some of the best genre releases coming to home media. In general I won’t be covering 4K because I find the format overrated, but if it’s new and  happens to have some kind of edition feature I might mention it.

All info is from the excellent Blu-ray.com. This isn’t every genre release, just the ones I find interesting. For the full list, follow that link. Continue reading “Home Again – December’s Blu-Ray Releases”

Retro Movie Review – 12 Thoughts About The Mask (1994)

SPOILER WARNING – THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE MASK, WHICH IS 24 YEARS OLD SO MAYBE DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT

I recently watched the Jim Carrey movie The Mask with my son. The first thing his mother said was, “If I hear you saying any lines from that movie, you’re grounded”.

I think she was talking to both of us.

When The Mask was released in 1994 it was an instant, massive hit. Everyone was quoting this movie. Of course, everyone quoted everything Jim Carrey said in every movie he was in because he was literally the biggest star in the world starting in ’94.

Check this out – The Mask, Dumb and Dumber, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective all came out that year. Three massive comedies. And even though people don’t seem to talk as much about The Mask today, it made $351 million on a $23 million budget.

Let’s take a look at why. Continue reading “Retro Movie Review – 12 Thoughts About The Mask (1994)”

Movie Review – 12 Thoughts About The Grinch

SPOILER WARNING – THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE 2018 ANIMATED FEATURE THE GRINCH

I LOVE Christmas.

In a more general sense, I LOVE the holiday season, which is inclusive of anything folks celebrate during the last couple of months of the year. There’s an undeniable excitement about days off of work, fellowship, lights, gifts, the joyful hustle and bustle of stores, weather getting cooler, and the impending hopefulness of a fresh, new year.

Some of you read that paragraph and thought, “Yeah, it’s awesome!”

Some of you read it and thought, “What a tool. Everything is terrible and there’s no joy to be had in this world” and probably some variation on “darkest timeline”.

The Grinch could possibly satisfy both mindsets. Continue reading “Movie Review – 12 Thoughts About The Grinch”

Home Again – November’s Blu-Ray Releases

Continuing by popular demand!

In October I highlighted the horror movies that were hitting Blu-ray each Tuesday. I had fun writing those columns, and I guess you guys had fun reading them because a poll in the Needless Things Podcast Facebook Group determined that you wanted the column to continue!

Since we’re past the spooky season now (not that it ever really ends), I’m also going to be including other genre releases and maybe even the occasional foreign drama. Ha. I’m kidding.

So from here into the foreseeable future, each and every Tuesday I’ll be running down some of the best genre releases coming to home media. In general I won’t be covering 4K releases because I find the format overrated, but if it’s a new release that happens to have some kind of edition feature I might mention it.
