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

If past history is anything that indicates the dog days of summer, it is when the films that did not make the summer blockbuster cut are dumped into theaters.Most of these movies are throw-away movies and do not deserve a second look.  However, this year seems to be the exception with many great films coming at the end of summer, and &quo...

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.

Battling it's way onto Blu-ray and DVD this summer, comes Warner Bros' remake of Clash of the Titans. The ultimate struggle for power pins men against kings, and kings against Gods.

It is unbelievable, but since its theatrical release only two months ago, The Losers, will be debuting and coming to Blu-ray this July. Based on the comic book of the same name, The Losers is an explosive tale of double cross and revenge. "The Losers" centers upon the members of an elite U.S. Special Forces unit sent into the Bolivian jun... Read More

The 1980s are back with a bang this summer as the quirky spring 2010 comedy hit, Hot Tub Time Machine, makes its way on DVD and Blu-ray. The plot is so simplistic that it isn’t even funny; four pals are stuck in a rut in adulthood -- Adam (John Cusack, Grosse Pointe Blank, 2012) has just been dumped, Lou (Rob Corddry, Law and Order, W) is a ...
