976-Evil Blu-ray Review
976-Evil   976-Evil Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  10/02/2017 4:49 PM EST
Of all the horror movies released in 1989 (Nightmare on Elm Street 5, Halloween 5, Friday the 13th Part 8), 976-EVIL was probably the most disappointing. The pedigree of the longtime horror icon, Robert Englund, could not be disputed; he played Freddy Kruger after all and as of 1989 he did it five times. He starred in the Tobe Hooper... Read More

Nostalgically missing my Disney annual passes, my mind wanders back to one of my favorite rides singing Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me...but if you rode the ride as many times as I have, you would remember the first words you hear after setting sail. Dead Men Tell No Taaaaaaaaaales.It makes perfect sense that Disney would eventually use i... Read More

Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now that'll be the end of ... Read More

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/26/2017 4:51 PM EST
If you thought Seasons One and Two of the hit television show Empire where chock full, then get ready for Season Three.  Available now on DVD, the eighteen episode season really packs a punch.  From drama, murder, backstabbing and a new baby in the mix, the weekly nighttime soap opera seems to be hitting all the marks necessary ...

Modern Family DVD Review
Modern Family: The Complete Eighth Season   Modern Family DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/25/2017 3:18 PM EST
A good run for a television show is about four to five seasons, so when you have one that is still going through Season Eight with renewals for another two seasons, you know it's a quality show.  When that same show has been nominated every year for an Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy and has won the award five out of Eight years it speaks v...

Lethal Weapon Blu-ray Review
Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season   Lethal Weapon Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/21/2017 2:10 PM EST
In 1987, the movie Lethal Weapon brought us the comedy/action team of Mel Gibson (Braveheart) and Danny Glover (Shooter) and it was so genius it spawned three sequels.  Almost 20 years after the last film hit theaters, the powers that be (seemingly out of fresh ideas) decided to make it into a television series. Season One aired... Read More

The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Tenth Season   The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/20/2017 11:55 AM EST
For the past ten years, the television show The Big Bang Theory has made us laugh.  With a renewal for at least two more seasons, we can rest assured the gang will all be together and geeky as ever.  This group of "scientists" has taught us more than we ever thought they could and has made being a nerd seem almost cool...

This is Us DVD Review
This is Us: The Complete First Season   This is Us DVD Review
(Sean Ferguson)  09/20/2017 11:01 AM EST
And the Winner is...On September 20th, 2016, NBC aired the first episode of a new series called "This Is Us" and almost a year to the day, "This Is Us" is nominated for 10 Emmy awards and is the ONLY broadcast network show in the category for Outstanding Drama Series! If you really think about that seriously, one has to admit th... Read More
