The ashes still not settled when it burned up the box-office in May of this year, the action thriller Iron Man 3 slams into home theaters in a Blu-ray combo pack. The movie with its HD Master Audio transfer from the theatrical release can shake the family room with the right equipment.  The movie cashed in with over $1billion ticket sales from... Read More

Wow we had some great television and cable programs this past year and hopefully more to come.  Looking over the list so far however, one stands out as the most decadent drama of the year thus far.  The very eerie, well acted Bates Motel takes a classic horror film from Alfred Hitchcock and brings together a prequel that matches, no surpa...

(Chris Rebholz)  09/09/2013 1:49 PM EST
It used to be that ads on television about so-called private matters seemed to be the exclusive domain of women (think of products like Depends or Summer's Eve), but we're in an apparently more enlightened age now when any number of potentially highly embarrassing "male issues" are trumpeted over the airwaves with of course the co...

(Chris Rebholz)  09/09/2013 11:33 AM EST
There was a period several years ago where it seemed that Bones was the only television show I watched on a regular basis. However, in recent years, the TV dance-card has been filled with more and more shows. As many have pointed out, there are a lot of great shows out there right now, both on network channels and on cable. These cable shows have i... Read More

The Fugitive Blu-ray Review
The Fugitive (20th Anniversary Edition) Blu-ray Review   The Fugitive Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  09/03/2013 12:35 PM EST
The 20th Anniversary Edition of The Fugitive has been released with all the heart pounding action that appeared on the big screen in 1993.  The thrilling adventurous chase has always been the hallmark for which many subsequent films have imitated.  Relentless in pursuit, the film takes you on a fast paced ride keeping you on the edge of y...

Heart of the Country DVD Review

(Chris Rebholz)  08/30/2013 10:17 AM EST
"Heart of the Country" releasing to DVD on Aug. 20, isn't necessarily a bad movie, but there's really not much that is too memorable in the 87-minute runtime. The story is a by the numbers affair, taking cues from so many better features that have come before it. It seems these days that any film or TV show featuring a woman at th... Read More

Epic Blu-ray Review
Epic Blu-ray Review   Epic Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  08/27/2013 10:38 AM EST
The title of Blue Sky Studios' latest animated film seems to be both ironic and sincere, the former because Epic is concerned with an incredibly small-scale view—it stars little woodland creatures and a race of tiny, fairy-like humans—and the latter because the film tries to mount a large-scale action-adventure that pits the forces ...

Grey's Anatomy DVD Review
Grey's Anatomy: The Complete Ninth Season DVD Review   Grey's Anatomy DVD Review
(Chris Rebholz)  08/26/2013 10:49 AM EST
Grey's Anatomy came onto the TV scene, believe it or not, over 9 years ago and during that time has garnered a strong and loyal following. Mostly, the audience for this show is women which isn't so surprising when you take a closer look at the plot of the show. Take a few handsome television actors, make their characters good and noble with just th... Read More

The Great Gatsby Blu-ray Review
The Great Gatsby Blu-ray Review   The Great Gatsby Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  08/26/2013 9:45 AM EST
There's no shortness of irony swirling around Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, a slick but shallow retelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel of the same name. From Strictly Ballroom to Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge! to Australia, the famously ritzy, operatic visionary is known for elevating, even celebrating style over substance. Sub... Read More
