24 Blu-ray Review
24: Season Eight - The Complete Final Season   24 Blu-ray Review
(Stephen Compall)  01/10/2011 4:11 PM EDT
After the astounding revival in storytelling that was 24's seventh season, the onus was on this, the eighth and final season, to avoid slipping back into the dark days of season six.  It was no small thing to ask: season seven replaced most of the cast, engaged formerly dead classic series character Tony Almeida in a triple-cross, and destroye...

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Blu-ray Review
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8 Motion Comic   Buffy The Vampire Slayer Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  01/09/2011 9:28 PM EDT
For most of us we get the majority of our information from the Internet. So its not surprising that other forms of entertainment find their way to this medium for newer audiences; comic books are no exception. Back in the mid 1990's Buffy the Vampire Slayer came to television and went on to become a very popular as well as successful show. Whe... Read More

Season of the Witch Theatrical Review

(Eric English)  01/09/2011 7:44 PM EDT
There are always a few movies that come out and make you wonder, "How did this get made?" Season of the Witch is that kind of movie. It opens with a hanging of three women who are accused of witchcraft. They try to convince the priest of the their innocence and of course he wont hear it. Afterwards the priest attempts to read the wom... Read More

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps Blu-ray Review

(John Delia)  01/07/2011 2:01 PM EDT
The release of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps on DVD/Blu-ray brings a lot of good features.  Viewing the film itself in this format and venue allows you to slow down the action, replay a scene that may have been misunderstood and allows you to play it whenever you want.  Well I'm sure you already knew that, but I just wanted to emphasize...

Machete Blu-ray Review
Machete   Machete Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  01/05/2011 4:07 PM EDT
Back in 2007 a movie called Grindhouse hit the theaters.  It was directed by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, and styled in such a way to bring back that nostalgia feeling of the exploitation drive-in classics from the 1970's.  In between the films, the filmmakers inserted fake trailers. Such was the case for a B-movie trailer,... Read More

The A-Team Blu-ray Review
The A-Team   The A-Team Blu-ray Review
(Marco Chacon)  01/03/2011 5:06 PM EDT
When my wife asked which movie I had received for review, I didn't tell her the name -- I just hummed the tune, and she paused and said, "The A-Team!   I think that is an impressive indication of the original's pervasive influence; my wife grew up in Haitian Catholic boarding schools.  As Hollywood adapts our childhood memori...

The Fighter Theatrical Review
The Fighter   The Fighter Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/23/2010 12:30 PM EDT
Mark Wahlberg has a tendency to be type cast as the guy "from the streets" and while he has often expressed some displeasure with the kind of films offered to him there is certainly no way you can deny how well he does in these roles. His newest venture is called The Fighter, about the early years of Irish Mickey Ward and his brother, Dic... Read More

True Grit Theatrical Review
True Grit   True Grit Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/23/2010 12:28 PM EDT
The best way to go view the latest adaption of True Grit is as its own entity. There was the first movie with the legendary John Wayne and now there is the 21st century version with Jeff Bridges. Both versions are good representations of the book by Charles Portis. Though neither can deliver the true sense of revenge that the book delivers, but wha... Read More

Rush Hour Blu-ray Review
Rush Hour   Rush Hour Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/23/2010 12:17 PM EDT
Who doesn't love a buddy cop movie? It all started way back in the eighties with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Their on screen chemistry starting with the first of four Lethal Weapon movies set a bar all action/comedy movies to come. There have been many incarnations of this type over the years, and with varied combinations. The one, though, that br... Read More

Tron Legacy Theatrical Review
Tron Legacy   Tron Legacy Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  12/19/2010 9:32 PM EDT
Gamers and action junkies will have a treat in store with the release of Tron: Legacy a computer game plot with spunk.  The fast paced adventure may be a sequel, but plays well to first timers.  If there is a downside to the film, it's that adults 35+ will probably not like or even understand the storyline.  But, if your ilk is getti...
