#StarWarsSmugglersBounty Review: March 2016

Even in an off month, The Star Wars/Funko Smuggler's Bounty sub box is never dull.
Review by Matt Cummings
As the nature of geek boxes continues to pan out as we expected - with whipsaw efforts from now-lesser boxes - Star Wars and Marvel Collector Corps continue their unequalled dominance. This is more true when you look at March's Star Wars box. Although there's no new movie out - and none planned until December's Rogue One - the box is far superior to those by Geek Fuel and Loot Crate (which we've now cancelled). With this month's theme as CANTINA, we see SB giving us a nice collection of items with only one item failing to connect.

Before diving in, let's review the details:
The cost for a Month to Month is $25 (plus S/H), or $150 (plus S/H) for a one-year subscription. You get one box every other month, with SB promising $50 in value and no fluff.If you choose the Smuggler membership (yearly), you are promised an additional gift on your annivers…

#GeekFuel Review: March 2016

March's Geek Fuel sets its sights high and mostly achieves them. Mostly.
Review by Matt Cummings
As the dead of winter gives way a breath of fresh spring air, we couldn't help but wonder why the same love didn't happen for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hoping the superhero team up would lead to big bankrolls, Geek Fuel and other subscription boxes hopped onboard. But just like them movie, March's box achieves only some of its goals.

Before diving in, let's review the details:
The cost for a Month to Month is $17.90, $16.90/month for a 3-month subscription, $15.90/month for a 6-month tour and just $13.90/month for a one-year subscription. Shipping $6.00 to the US, Canada, and at least a few other countries.
We use QUALITY and TIMING to base our reviews, so let's see how this box stands up. As always, we'll end our review with some additional thoughts after the unboxing:

Movie Review: 'Criminal'

Criminal is an ugly, weird, psychotic flick that wastes too many of its esteemed assets.
Review by Matt Cummings

WARNING: Major spoilers ahead.
There's not much that the spy thriller Criminal gets right, and that's too bad because its fascinating premise and great cast are outshined by a shoddy script, marginal execution, and the sense that some studio head pushed this project into the wrong direction.

The violent world of spy craft has taken another soldier, this time in murdered CIA operative Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds). But his sacrifice yields an interesting by-product: he was on his way to pick up the launch codes for the entire American defense network, which was stolen by a shadowy character named The Dutchman (Michael Pitt). The bag's disappearance and location of The Dutchman have also spurred interest by other parties, including the psychotic anarchist Heimdahl (Jordi Molla), who desires to sell the laptop to the highest bidder in the hopes of encouraging world…

If any hope exists of returning to his family as the husband and father they deserve, Tom will have to learn why he has been placed in this peculiar situation and the great lengths he must go to earn back his human existence.



Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) is a daredevil billionaire at the top of his game. His eponymous company FireBrand is nearing completion on its greatest achievement to date - the tallest skyscraper in the northern hemisphere. But Tom's workaholic lifestyle has disconnected him from his family, particularly his beautiful wife Lara (Jennifer Garner) and his adoring daughter Rebecca (Malina Weissman).

Rebecca's 11th birthday is here, and she wants the gift she wants every year, a cat. Tom hates cats, but he is without a gift and time is running out. His GPS directs him to a mystical pet store brimming with odd and exotic cat…

Green Room is a brilliantly crafted and wickedly fun horror-thriller starring Patrick Stewart as a diabolical club owner who squares off against an unsuspecting but resilient young punk band.


Down on their luck punk rockers The Ain’t Rights are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour, and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon. What seems merely to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren’t meant to see.

The Adderall Diaries Opens Tomorrow Starring @JamesFrancoTV

Based on the bestselling memoir by Stephen Elliott, The Adderall Diaries is the gripping and complex story of how an author’s fascination with a high-profile murder case leads him to come to terms with his troubled past while embarking on a potentially life-changing romance in the present.



James Franco plays Stephen Elliot, a once-successful novelist paralyzed by writer's block and an escalating Adderall dependency, who becomes obsessed with a high-profile murder case as a way to escape his personal troubles. His interest leads him to meet Lana Edmond (Amber Heard), a smart, sexy reporter who gives him unique access to the case. As their relationship takes off, Stephen is suddenly thrust back into the past when his father (Ed Harris), a cruel and vindictive man, shows up to challenge the veracity of the memoir Stephen is writing. As Stephen simultaneously delves into the details of the murder case (which turns out to have some unexpected parallels to his own troubled upbringing) …

New Poster For FEAR, INC.

What if there was a company you could call that, for a premium, will bring your greatest fears to life? You don’t have to leave your house, your office, or your vacation; the scares are customized to your tastes and arrive at your doorstep when you least expect it. But like texting an ex at 2am, what sounds like a great idea at the time, can end up getting you killed.

When horror movie enthusiast, Joe Foster (Lucas Neff) and his girlfriend, Lindsey Gains (Caitlin Stasey), are handed a business card for such a company, Joe’s curiosity gets the best of him.

As the Fear, Inc experience seemingly begins, scares start popping up right out of Joe’s favorite horror movies, quickly turning him into a kid in a candy store; if the kid was a self righteous thirty year old and the candy store was the prop room from SAW. After a friend explains the company’s dangerous reputation, his rollercoaster of a journey goes from light hearted fun to uncomfortably realistic as things take a major turn for …

Movie Review: #THEJUNGLEBOOK Beautiful... Will Leave You Breathless

He's Back. RAMA delivers another great review.

Beautiful... Will leave you breathless and in awe


Disney’s live action THE JUNGLE BOOK is the most beautiful film you’ll see this year. It’s absolutely stunning in every sense of the word. It leaves you breathless and in awe. This has been a great year so far, because just like what “Deadpool” has done to superhero genre and “Hardcore Henry” has done to action, THE JUNGLE BOOK is also a total game-changer in terms of family adventure film, it goes to show you that the future of cinema has arrived and it’s looking bright. This is such a masterfully crafted film so much so that you can’t wait to get your hands on the Blu-Ray so that you can watch the bonus features that would hopefully answer that million dollar question, ‘How did they do that?’

Mowgli (Neel Sethi) is a man-cub raised by a family of wolves but as he grows older, the jungle has become unsafe for him when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba) promises to devour him. Gui…
