[DVD Review]—Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021)

I'm probably the last blogger in the universe to write a review for last year's blockbuster Spider-Man: No Way Home - a.k.a. the 8th Spidey live-action movie from Sony Pictures. Why the wait? Well, I didn't see the film when it was playing in theaters, so I waited until the home media or, more specifically, the DVD. I know what many of you are thinking, "A DVD? What is this, 2002?" Listen, I review whatever the PRs send to me. In this case, it was a DVD. Shockingly, this DVD comes with a Digital code. (FYI - To all the moochers out there: Sorry, but I already redeemed the code. Find your freebies elsewhere.)

{The Midnight Horror}—"OFFSEASON" is a Suspenseful Supernatural Thriller

Wait a minute... is Billy reviewing horror movies again? 

I planned to restart my Midnight Horror post series, but my plans were constantly sidetracked by illness, death, and other uncontrollable setbacks. Are the postings back indefinitely? That remains to be seen. I'm testing the waters, hoping to rekindle my creative mojo. Let's start with the "Offseason" and see where it takes us.

[Blu-ray Review]—Belfast (2021)

Sometime this year, the critically appraised coming-age film Belfast came out on Blu-ray from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, and somewhere along the line, I received a copy for review purposes. I recall watching it immediately but never wrote down my thoughts on it until now. And yes, I did rewatch the movie before writing this post.

[Blu-ray Review]—Last Looks (2022)

Thanks to the now-saturated streaming services, theatrical releases are becoming a thing of the past unless the film is Marvel or connected to another big IP. Everything else goes straight to VOD, followed by a Digital, DVD, or Blu-ray release, such as the thriller Last Looks, which landed on physical media last month from RLJE Films. Ever heard it? If you said no, join the club, as I never heard of the title until I received a press release for the Blu-ray - and that was near the release date.

{Easter Movies on Pure Flix}—Risen (2016)

“Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, come down from the cross and save yourself!” In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! Let this Messiah, this king of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe.” Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him. Mark 15:29-32 (NIV) 

Easter is just around the corner, and there's no time like the present to teach your kids about the holiday's true meaning. No, I'm referring to chocolate bunnies, egg hunts, and the Easter Bunny. I'm referring to the death and resurrection of Jesus - the hallmarks of the Christian faith. Easter is the time of rejoicing and remembering the sacrifice Jesus made for all of us.
