I know what you are thinking -- you are thinking,  'Gee, I really liked Watchmen; as said, it is probably a better Watchmen than we deserve -- and definitely the best one we were going to get; but do I really want 24 more minutes of it?'And then you think -- 'Hey -- shouldn't I wait for that five-disc editi...

The title comes from the story.  There are two high school buddies: one an uptight virgin who badly preaches, on abstinence and is celibate with his lovely, Raquel Alessi, girlfriend -- the other dumb-and-dumber.  When the "good" or maybe just "average" buddy is about to have sex for the first time, he falls down the s...

Disney has decided that 3-D is the future of motion pictures at your local cinema, and with the exception of the "extra fee for 3-D", they may be right. While the current version of 3-D technology (instead of the red/blue 3-D from the 1950s) got kickstarted by the short films in the Disney theme parks (such as Captain EO, Honey I Shr...

300 Blu-ray Review
300: The Complete Experience Blu-ray Review   300 Blu-ray Review
(Marco Chacon)  7/23/2009 11:39 AM EDT
If there was a single disc I would buy someone who just got a Blu-Ray player, 300 is definitely near the top of the list.  Although almost any movie will look great on Blu-Ray - very few would suffer as much comparatively on DVD.  The reason for this is that the movie is about the great historical battle at Thermopylae where a tiny force ...

(Roger Longenbach)  7/16/2009 8:56 AM EDT
I don't know if it's just my luck, or just the quality of movies this summer, but this movie is another hard one to judge. If you're a fan of the books, or have followed the previous 5 movies and want to continue the story, you're going to see this movie even if I tell you to not waste your time. So, let's get down to business to see what I th... Read More
