Galaxina / The Crater Lake Monster

Two totally unexpected Blu-ray remasters


Rod Lott
Two movies I never thought I’d see remastered for Blu-ray, much less on the same disc?

Soylent Green

A minor sci-fi classic that's relevant today


Rod Lott
Of Charlton Heston's unofficial trilogy of post-apocalyptic sci-fi — "Planet of the Apes," "The Omega Man" and "Soylent Green" — the new-to-Blu-ray latter is easily the weakest leg, yet ironically, the most relevant today.

Turbulent Skies

Casper the friendly actor saves a plane.


Rod Lott
It’s strangely comforting that “Turbulent Skies” hasn’t an original idea in its 87 minutes.

The 9/11 Connection

The Sooner State’s ties to the twin towers are tight, despite the distance.


Clifton Adcock
On Sept. 11, 2001, citizens across the country watched in horror as hijacked commercial jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center towers in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and a field near Shanksville, Pa.

Grudge guru Takashi Shimizu isn’t at a career apex. His 2009 film, The Shock Labyrinth, was a dud. His latest American effort, the airline ghost story 7500, was supposed to come out in theaters last summer, but got pushed to next month. So I hoped Tormented, a 2011 J-horror effort fresh to Blu-ray on these shores, might mark a return to form.
