Swiss Army Man Blu-ray Review

There have been so many moments while watching movies that I complain endlessly about the lack of creativity in Hollywood.  Well, for the first time, I have to admit this is not one of those films. Out this week on Bluray is Swiss Army Man, starring Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine, Looper) and Mr. Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliff. (A... Read More

In theory, The Purge was an interesting and unique premise.  No conscience for one night.  Everything is legal including murder.  The most anyone can hope for is to survive 12 hours of madness and mayhem and for those causing it… to enjoy their freedom.  While the concept was great the reception wasn't what the ...

High fashion modeling is a cutthroat world.  As Supermodel Heidi Klum often says, "In fashion one day your in, the next day your out", and no film better exemplifies that that like Nicolas Winding Refn's (Drive) The Neon Demon.  His vision takes the modeling world and turns it into an Avant-garde horror film.J...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/27/2016 11:06 AM EST
As a commentary on today's world where most of us are in a zombie like state staring at our electronic devices instead of interacting with those around us, Cell is a meaningful look at what we as a society have become.  As a movie based on a Stephen King Novel of the same name, it is a horrible mess that makes little sense.  It's taken ab...

What happens when you peak in High School and it all goes downhill 20 years later?  What happens when you were the geek in High School and now you‘ve peaked 20 years later?  For Calvin (Kevin Hart; Ride Along) and Bob (Dwayne Johnson; Furious 7) that is exactly what happened in this year's Central Intelligence.Bob was the fat kid at...

Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray Review
Beauty and the Beast: 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Review   Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/23/2016 1:53 PM EST
It's hard to believe it's been twenty-five years since Beauty and the Beast came to theaters.  With its romantic story and beautiful music, it is what we think of as "Classic Disney" and even these many years later, it still holds up.  It's no wonder there is a live action version set for next year. But, until then, ... Read More

Aliens Blu-ray Review
Aliens: 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Review   Aliens Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  09/21/2016 11:08 AM EST
Aliens Blu-ray 30th Anniversary Edition features outer space and Sigourney Weaver and makes for one of the best sci-fi movies ever.  Can you believe it's been 30 years since Sigourney Weaver graced the movie theaters as Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of her ship after the catastrophic encounter with the Alien?  Who else can...

The Civil War was a time of turmoil and strife in this country, especially for the southern states.  The Confederate Army was full of farmers who were not quite sure why they were fighting and while they were away their farms were being ransacked by the very people they were working for. Adding to that, rich slave owners were becoming exempt f... Read More

(Sean Ferguson)  09/14/2016 10:57 AM EST
Being released this week on Blu-ray & Digital DVD from Lionsgate Premier films is Marauders, an action film starring Law & Order's Christopher Meloni and Bruce Willis. Now, many may not have heard of it, mainly because it's a straight to Blu-ray release, which would seem odd considering the cast. I mean come on! You have Christopher Meloni ... Read More

(Sean Ferguson)  09/13/2016 10:29 AM EST
Let me preface this with a note to all who are reading this: I am not a fan of the Horror Movie Genre. The idea of getting scared in a theater because of a made up ghost or "presence" is ridiculous! I also find it amazing that people shell out $12/$15 to have a cat or something jump into the screen, so they can scream like a teenage girl ... Read More
