MAX EVRY’S RECOMMENDATION: Awesome films: The ultimate collection
Click here to buy!
Horror fans who are worth their money know and love the genre films of the British Hammer Studios, which produced classic Gothic horror films and thrillers in the 50s, 60s and 70s. For the past few years they have been released on labels like Scream Factory and Warner Archive, but the fine folks at Mill Creek Entertainment recently put out a fantastic 20-movie box set that features some super fun titles from the studio’s history, including The Revenge of Frankenstein (with) the great Peter Cushing!) And The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb, both of which were previously released on a double Blu-ray by Mill Creek. Other creature traits include the classic The Gorgon (starring Cushing and Christopher Lee), The Two Faces by Dr. Jekyll, the 1962 rerun of The Old Dark House and the truly bizarre The Snorkel!

With we’re all excited for the third season of The Boys from Amazon Prime Video, which is currently being produced in Toronto, there’s no better time than the present to bring The Boys Funko Pops home and add it to your collection! I recently started putting together my own characters from the series, and I love the personalized details of each character, especially my boy Hughie. Crossing my fingers though, they’ll be releasing a few more soon, especially for Kimiko, Frenchie, Breast Milk, and Black Noir!
RECOMMENDATION FROM GRANT HERMANNS: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy
Click here to buy!
After getting back into the world of enlightenment and witness reading last week with rockstars LA Noire but wanted something new, I plunged into the world of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney a Blast thanks to the revamped trilogy collection on the Nintendo Switch for fans of the genre. The games combine anime-esque graphics and humor with intriguing murder cases, investigations and courtroom dramas, and offer hours of exciting gameplay and storytelling. Whether you buy the Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Steam version of the title, this is an easy solution to handle and thoroughly enjoyable ride.
RECOMMENDATION FROM MAGGIE DELA PAZ: Weightlifting fairy, Kim Bok-Joo (South Korean drama)
Click here to see!
With Lee Sung-Kyung and Nam Joo-Hyuk, Weightlifting Fairy will follow the story of college athletes trying to achieve their sports dreams as they grapple with the life barriers that come with growing up. The main focus is on a young student named Kim Bok-Joo, who has great ambitions for her promising career as a weightlifter. However, her focus on this sport is suddenly disrupted when her childhood friend and talented swimmer Jung Joon-Hyung steps back into her life.
The weightlifting fairy Kim Bok-Joo is a 16-part coming-of-age sports dramedy that was first broadcast in 2016. What I like most about the show is its charming and fun-loving storyline that feels so reliable and soothing. Lee Sun-Kyung’s main appearance will definitely captivate the audience as it convincingly depicts the courage and insecurity of her character. Your electrical chemistry with Nam Joo-Hyuk was definitely one of the highlights of the series as you will instantly fall in love with its fun and lovable scenes.
JEFF AMES ‘recommendation: The Mummy returns 2CD Expanded Soundtrack
Click here to buy!
There was a time when I thought The Mummy Returns was pure gold. In many ways, Stephen Sommer’s ambitious actioner remains memorable … just for the wrong reasons – read: bad CGI, the rock, weird thematic choices like the cheesy reincarnation footage, the stupid hot air balloon, Rachel Weisz’s sudden face as Evelyn (the actress clearly asked for more Opportunities to show off their action skills and acting skills), that bizarre scene of Brendan Fraser running away from the sun, Rick and Evie’s kid; and way too many dramatic beats for what is considered a summer blockbuster.
Still, The Mummy Returns has some redeeming aspects, most notably Alan Silvestri’s exciting score. The maestro is broke with this bankruptcy and creates a daring score that his huge 100-member orchestra and 60-voice male choir use to achieve an astonishing effect. Highlights include cues like “My First Bus Ride” and “Rick Battles Imhotep,” the latter of which was missing from the original 2001 soundtrack release. This new 2-CD presentation from Intrada gives listeners nearly 160 minutes of Silvestri’s music, including alternate shots. and presents the score as heard in the film. The results may not compare to Silvestri’s work on Back to the Future or any of the Predator films, but it remains one of the better scores of the early shoulds and a much better soundtrack than Sommers’ film deserves.
