Zac Efron has had an interesting career so far.  He started as a fresh faced teenager singing and dancing his way in to young girls' hearts, then moved on to more serious and adult roles and now he seems to be enjoying more of the frat boy, partying, comedy driven characters.   So far this year, we have seen him i...

Illumination Entertainment hasn't made a ton of animated films, but, when they do, they typically get it right.  Great characters, good stories, terrific animation, etc. Their feature films are something to look forward to and their characters tend to be memorable (Minions anyone?).  Their newest foray into the world of animation, The Sec...

What could be better than an animated, Kung Fu fighting, Warrior Dragon Panda Bear?  Tons of adorable, dumpling eating, noodle slurping, roly-poly baby pandas!  DreamWorks animation has stepped up their cuteness factor for the third installment in the franchise, Kung Fu Panda 3 (Awesome Edition), out now on Blu-ray and DVD.Back are all th...

At one point in time Steven Seagal (Above The Law, Under Siege) was considered a true Hollywood bad-ass.  Well, those days are long gone, but Seagal continues to make films that only his younger self could pull off.Code of Honor stars Seagal as Robert Sikes, a former special-ops operative, who, after his family is killed in a drive-by shooting...

Author Stephen Elliot had a pretty messed up childhood, which lead to varying degrees of abuse – both at the hands of his father and his own drug addiction.  At least that's the way he'd like to remember it.  The truth is probably something a little different.  He chronicles his journey to the so-called truth in his memoir, The...

In today's day and age, war is a constant. We send our troops out to various countries around the world and have to ask ourselves if the damages are really worth it sometimes.  With the advanced technology that now exists in the military, some argue there are less casualties, but, in some cases, the opposite could be true. Gavin Hood's... Read More

The story of Tarzan has been told in many different ways over 100 years.  From live action films and television shows to books and animated features, we seem to be fascinated with the idea of a man raised among animals.  The story appeals to various facets of the population and we always seem to be drawn into the animalistic male who...

Some would argue that author Roald Dahl was a deeply disturbed individual.  Others would argue he was a brilliant writer.  Some would say he was both.  As the author of many children's and adult books, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, he cemented a place in literary hist...

It has been over 23 years since the original X-Files debuted on Fox Television, laying the groundwork for most of the modern television that we still watch today. The series centered on FBI agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and his partner Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) as they tried to prove the existence of a government conspiracy on the highest ...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  06/26/2016 5:49 PM EDT
He's big, green, ugly and lives in a swamp.  In 2001, we fell in love with him so much that we ended up with three sequels and a Broadway musical.  He is forever engrained in a generation's mind, and now Dreamworks has decided to release the movie that started it all on Blu-ray as the anniversary edition of&n...
