The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray Review   The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review

Big Bang Theory could easily be a simple uninteresting show about four very smart but "nerdy" guys who lives in the same apartment building as a very attractive waitress. Initially that was what the show was about; the main character of Leonard (Johnny Galecki) had a large crush on the new girl next door, Penny (Kaley Cuoco). Most of the ... Read More

In the spirit of such films as Sixteen Candles, Can't Buy Me Love, 10 Things I Hate About You, and 13 Going on 30, Screen Gems releases Easy A, starring Emma Stone on audiences this week.   Easy A premise is simple enough --  a modern-day telling of the Scarlet Letter. Olive (Emma Stone, SuperBad, Zombieland) is a simple high school stude... Read More

It's fairly typical of Hollywood that once a certain genre of movie catches on we will begin to see similar types being pumped out over the next few years. At the moment we have the "assassin trained in every way possible" character. One of the first movies to really deliver in this area was The Bourne Identity in which a would-be killer ... Read More

(Eric English)  9/15/2010 10:02 AM EDT
Based on the long running newspaper comic strip of the same name "Marmaduke" came to the big screen as a live action/computer animated film in the summer of 2010. Surrounding the story of a Great Dane named Marmaduke and the antics of dealing with his size and less than average intelligence, the one panel strip has been running since the ... Read More

Once again we have another movie based off a video game. This time around it is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The difference with this movie and most others that are based off of video games is that this time around Disney is producing it so we can expect a nice big budget.The movie opens with our young hero who is living on the streets and ...

The Vampire Diaries Blu-ray Review

(Nathan M Rose)  9/12/2010 1:29 PM EDT
After the success of Twilight, studios and television networks started searching for the next Vampire series that they could profit on.  One of them to stand out from the crowd was The Vampire Diaries, by L.J. Smith.  This series could have been glossed over by any writer, stayed on the air as fodder, and then been done with.  Howeve... Read More

Supernatural Blu-ray Review
Supernatural Season Five Blu-ray Review   Supernatural Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  9/12/2010 1:12 PM EDT
Supernatural is a show that has grown into its own little juggernaut of popularity and mythology. Fans of it are devout to say the least. Conventions devoted solely to the show have started cropping up, books based on the show and even fan fiction appear on the Internet. Perhaps it is because of the rapid loyalty of comic book fans, or perhaps it's... Read More

There have been a lot of movies based off of video games. It is as common today as the comic book movie. Quite frankly though, most of these movies have never been very good. They almost always come off even more cartoonish and cliché than the games they are based on.Resident Evil is a game that has been around for many years, going back to ... Read More

"Let's do some gratuitous violence". That's the motto that sums up what you can expect from The Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day. The original was a surprise hit not in theaters but on DVD in college dorm rooms. It's love of not only movies but also men who stand up and dish out justice as they see fit instantly caught on and over the ye... Read More

Smallville Blu-ray Review
Smallville: The Complete Ninth Season Blu-ray Review   Smallville Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  9/3/2010 1:07 PM EDT
Superman. The name is as well known as apple pie. Even if you know nothing about who he is or where he got his start, you at least know his name. It's surprising that a fictional character could have such a broad audience. Especially considering he started out (and still is) a comic book. Comic books, as popular as they have become over the recent ... Read More
