Revolution, created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural), comes back for a second and final season on Blu-ray to the delight to fans of  the now canceled show.  While the series started off fairly slowly, it picked up part way through and the second season continued this momentum.Beginning the series six months after season one concluded, we fin...

Muppets Most Wanted Blu-ray Review

Muppets Most Wanted is anything but.  Like so many movie sequels it doesn't come close to the original, or in this case, the first movie in the most recent reboot of the Muppets.  Watching the Muppet show growing up was always fun and I am inclined to love almost anything Muppets but this sequel just wasn't good.  I kept looking for ...

If you are a designer car buff and a car racing enthusiast then "Need For Speed" is a movie you definitely want to see.   From fast, exotic cars to beautiful scenery from all over the United States the movie won't disappoint the avid Nascar, muscle car and street racing fan.  However, if you don't like all those things you ...

I always find it interesting when a film comes out "Starring" someone and the supporting actor or actress steals the thunder away from the main star. And so it goes with Twentieth Century Fox's release of "The Other Woman" starring Cameron Diaz being released to BluRay & DVD this week! In all honesty, it should be "Star... Read More

Ah, what can I say other than I just watched another really terrible movie!  This one was just bad, bad, bad--- well, unless you're are a teenager into the horror genre. The original, which I haven't seen, or should say don't remember seeing, came out in 2001 and starred well known actors Steve Zahn, Paul Walker, and Leelee Sobieski. It was wr... Read More

Looking for a wacky place to stay for the evening? If you're looking for romance it could be found at the Regent Beverly Wilshire (Pretty Woman), or are you looking for something more edgier? The Hotel Mon Signor (Four Rooms) may have some vacancy's, I know  theres always room at the Bates Motel, but I wouldn't advise staying there! The O... Read More

Once Upon A Time… That is the way these stories start. It doesn't matter how old you are. Whether you are in love or not, male or female, we have all come to appreciate a good fairytale at some point in our lives. Each generation has one that they hold on to from their youth or perspective. But the rarest of them all is a live romantic ... Read More

(Marco Chacon)  06/20/2014 11:04 AM EST
In 2006, Zach Snyder showed us that even if he wasn't necessarily a genius innovator in terms of narratives (he does some of his best work with other people's properties), he was an innovative film-maker in terms of technique. His adaptation of Frank Miller's super-stylized (every page is a splash-page) 300--the story of the Greek battl... Read More
