Modern Family DVD Review
Modern Family: The Complete Eighth Season   Modern Family DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/25/2017 3:18 PM EDT
A good run for a television show is about four to five seasons, so when you have one that is still going through Season Eight with renewals for another two seasons, you know it's a quality show.  When that same show has been nominated every year for an Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy and has won the award five out of Eight years it speaks v...

Lethal Weapon Blu-ray Review
Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season   Lethal Weapon Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/21/2017 2:10 PM EDT
In 1987, the movie Lethal Weapon brought us the comedy/action team of Mel Gibson (Braveheart) and Danny Glover (Shooter) and it was so genius it spawned three sequels.  Almost 20 years after the last film hit theaters, the powers that be (seemingly out of fresh ideas) decided to make it into a television series. Season One aired... Read More

The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Tenth Season   The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/20/2017 11:55 AM EDT
For the past ten years, the television show The Big Bang Theory has made us laugh.  With a renewal for at least two more seasons, we can rest assured the gang will all be together and geeky as ever.  This group of "scientists" has taught us more than we ever thought they could and has made being a nerd seem almost cool...

This is Us DVD Review
This is Us: The Complete First Season   This is Us DVD Review
(Sean Ferguson)  09/20/2017 11:01 AM EDT
And the Winner is...On September 20th, 2016, NBC aired the first episode of a new series called "This Is Us" and almost a year to the day, "This Is Us" is nominated for 10 Emmy awards and is the ONLY broadcast network show in the category for Outstanding Drama Series! If you really think about that seriously, one has to admit th... Read More

The Big Sick Blu-ray Review
The Big Sick   The Big Sick Blu-ray Review
(Judith Raymer)  09/19/2017 1:57 PM EDT
Take a seat and a pause as this mislabeled "romantic comedy" unhooks its sweater from the gate.  Truly a dramedy with strong romantic and comedic overtones, The Big Sick is written by Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) and Emily V. Gordon; and, is based on their real-life events.  While certain elements of their story ha... Read More

Arrow Blu-ray Review
Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season   Arrow Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  09/19/2017 10:53 AM EDT
Warner Bros. and DC Comics have created a cult culture following that I want to be a part of.  More importantly, I want my kids to be a part of this cult culture.  Between the two mega companies, they have brought comic book characters to life in a way that the Saturday morning cartoons of the 1960's and beyond failed to do.  Th...

Wonder Woman 4K Ultra HD Review
Wonder Woman   Wonder Woman 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/19/2017 9:53 AM EDT
One of the most highly anticipated movies of 2017, Wonder Woman did not disappoint.  While some felt it pushed a feminist agenda, many more saw it as a positive example of female empowerment and people of all ages flocked to it in droves.  With the rivalry between Marvel and DC Comics at an all-time high, this film is certa...

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial 4K Ultra HD Review
E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial   E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/14/2017 4:32 PM EDT
I was eleven years old when E.T. The Extra-terrestrial movie came to theaters.  I can remember with fondness being enchanted by the little, brown, wrinkled alien with the big eyes and glowing fingertip who only wanted to find a way back home and the young boy determined to help him.  I also remember running out to buy the best, ...
