a group of loud action films, sequels, remakes and otherwise...
Willis stars in Eli Roth's remake of Death
(2018) which ends up just being another average run-of-the-mill
vigilante action thriller. Willis seems to be in auto-pilot
throughout this whole movie and pretty much plays himself, while the
violence level is a tad above normal but could have been even more
also stars Vincent D'Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue, Camilla Morrone, Dean
Norris, and Beau Knapp.
Dr. Paul Kersey (Willis) has the picture perfect wife (Shue) and
daughter (Morrone) and all is well... until a violent act sets them
apart. Forever changed, Kersey transforms from mild mannered Doctor
to lean mean killing machine as he seeks out those who destroyed his
family. Soon catching media attention, Kersey becomes something of a
vigilante and dares anyone to cross his path of vengeance.
in 1080p high definition Blu-ray with a 2.40:1 widescreen aspect
ratio and a standard DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix, the
film looks and sounds fine on disc. Colors throughout the film are
pretty natural and maybe a tad more stylized than normal but not as
impressive as 4K UHD. An anamorphically
standard definition DVD is also included here with a lossy 5.1 Dolby
Digital mix and a digital copy.

remake is slick and nicely produced, however, isn't much more than
your typical revenge flick and doesn't feel as raw as the original.
original had a few sequels, eventually working itself into a bad
B-movie series thanks to the reactionary 1980s and infamous Cannon
Films. Charles Bronson remained the lead in all these films. Death
Wish 4: The Crackdown
(1987) and Death
Wish 5: The Face Of Death
(1994) have arrived as an import double feature on Blu-ray. While
not as memorable as the original few films, they have more of the
same over the top violence fans come to expect. Both films have been
nicely restored for this Blu-ray disc thanks to the good folks at
Wish 4: The Crackdown
film also stars Kay Lenz, John P. Ryan, Perry Lopez, and Danny Trejo.
Kersey (Bronson) returns in the battle for drugs in 1987 Los Angeles
as the daughter of his new girlfriend dies of an overdose. In order
to make things right, he seeks down the suppliers of the drug and
stops at nothing but each one of them gets what's coming to them!
Wish 5: The Face of Death
(Bronson) decides to settle down and get married to Olivia and put
all his life of death and murder behind him... though that happiness
doesn't last for long as his girl is assaulted by a thug (Robert
Joy). Tracing the thug back to a mob boss Tommy O'Shea (Michael
Parks), who has it out for Kersey's girlfriend as she is testifying
against him. Of course, Kersey is having none of this and the two
tough guys go mano a mano.
on 1080p Blu-ray disc with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and a
2.0 DTS-HD MA Stereo track, both films look a lot sharper here than
they did on previous releases. There's a bit of grain on both but
that doesn't detract away from the overall presentation.

Guillermo Del Toro's original Pacific
film is one of those love it or hate it kind of genre films. I'm on
the side that loves it as I've always had an affection of giant
monster movies (especially Japanese ones) and I'm also a giant robot
fan (though I'm terribly bored of the Transformers
films). Surprisingly, as the first film wasn't necessarily a box
office smash, a Steven S. DeKnight directed sequel, Pacific
arrived which stars John Boyega (Star
and Scott Eastwood (Suicide
and gets it kind of right though it's impossible not to wonder how
much better this film would have been had it been in Del Toro's
much of the original film took place at night with rain and darkness,
this film is bright and sunny with many of the main battles taking
place during the day. It also brings back a few original cast
members including Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, and Rinko Kikuchi. It is
a bit weird that the first film's main character isn't even so much
as mentioned throughout the sequel but it doesn't hurt the film too
much. Uprising also stars Cailee Spaeny and Jing Tian to name a few.
war between man and kanji has taken a break, however, ten years later
they are back. Jake Pentecost (Boyega), the son of Idris Elba's
character from the first film, tries everything he can to not be like
this Father. But after he gets entangled with the law, he finds
himself forced to jump inside a jaeger and take on the bad guys.
Crossing paths with a young hacker (Spaeny), they join the elite
defense force as the giant monsters attack in new form.
in a stunning 2160p HEVC/H.265, Dolby Vision/HDR (10; Ultra HD
Premium)-enhanced Ultra High Definition image with a widescreen
aspect ratio of 2.40:1 and a highly detailed 11.1 Dolby Atmos 11.1
lossless track, this is a fantastic way to watch the film. The wide
range of colors and definition in the characters is more evident than
in the also included 1080p Blu-ray version of the film, which has a
Dolby TrueHD 7.1 mixdown as well. Also included is a digital copy.

you can tell that Universal was trying to mimic a more
vibe with this sequel, it's not as good as it could have been. In
all reality, I'm shocked it even happened to begin with! I'd say if
you enjoyed the first one to at least check this one out.
