Takers Theatrical Review
Takers   Takers Theatrical Review
(Stephen Compall)  08/26/2010 8:36 PM EST
Forever may he be cursed.  You might not even notice, but Hayden Christensen (Star Wars: Episode II, Jumper) joins a crew mostly of his thespian superiors for Takers, a film that begins as a competently executed heist flick, and turns into something quite other than that.The trouble with all heist films is that we're expected to view the p...

Diary of a Wimpy Kid   Diary of a Wimpy Kid Blu-ray Review
(Stephen Compall)  08/19/2010 7:49 PM EST
As if we wish to relive it again, we make the children of humanity grow up much as humanity itself did, steeped in superstition. We are only to be granted the ability to tell the difference between fantasy, wishes, and reality later on; hence, the creation Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kenny. The series has now been turned into a feature leng... Read More

The Expendables Theatrical Review
The Expendables   The Expendables Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  08/15/2010 12:48 PM EST
The Expendables is a no holds barred, make no apologies, straight up action flick. Within the first ten minutes of the movie we see what kind of guys we are dealing with and what we can expect from them throughout the course of the movie. We have assembled a who's who of action stars, ranging from the early eighties and right up to the present. Wit... Read More

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Theatrical Review
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World   Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  08/14/2010 10:25 PM EST
Believe it or not but the growth of the comic book movie has been going on for about the past 20 years now. It began, for some of you, with Tim Burtons Batman. That movie was a great success. It was able to spawn a few sequels, regardless of whether or not they were any good. It caught Hollywood's attention and we started to see more movies like th... Read More

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Digital HD Review
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8 Motion Comic   Buffy The Vampire Slayer Digital HD Review
(Chris Rebholz)  08/12/2010 3:30 PM EST
Most of us have heard of Buffy the Vampire Slayer regardless of whether or not we have seen it. It helped change the genre of TV in terms of dialogue as well as what could be done with a TV series in general. It launched the careers of certain actors in the show who now appear in hits like "How I Met Your Mother". It also spawned a spin-o... Read More

Date Night   Date Night DVD Review
(Nathan M Rose)  08/10/2010 8:27 PM EST
On April 9th, 2010, a very quirky comedy for couples called, Date Night, was released to the movie-going audience. It starred Steve Carell and Tina Fey. Now in August, this zany couple comedy comes home on DVD and Blu-ray -- courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.The plot of Date Night is pretty simplistic and should appeal to anyone that ...

Stargate Universe Blu-ray Review
Stargate Universe - SGU: Season 1.5   Stargate Universe Blu-ray Review
(Stephen Compall)  08/09/2010 9:45 AM EST
To resolve a debate posed between two minor characters in "Space", the first episode of this latter half of Stargate Universe's first season: yes, Colonel Young (Louis Ferreira, Shooter) is a murderer, though not so much a cold-blooded as a hot-blooded one.  I think, absent events to follow in "Space", he would be convi...

The Other Guys Theatrical Review
The Other Guys   The Other Guys Theatrical Review
(Roger Longenbach)  08/08/2010 1:24 PM EST
In the tradition of buddy cop movies and television shows, like Miami Vice, Starsky & Hutch, Lethal Weapon, and Dragnet comes The Other Guys.  But what does that title have to do with those buddy cop movies?  Well, this is the story of the other cops, that you only see in the background of those stories.  The ones that don't get ...
