Archer Blu-ray Review
Archer: The Complete Season Four   Archer Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  01/27/2014 4:07 PM EST
It's been a longstanding conceit for television shows featuring the same production houses or other creative staff to occasionally cross-promote themselves by having various characters show up on sibling series. The incestuous "rural" comedies that were CBS' mainstay in the 1960s are a prime example, with various characters in The... Read More

Interviewed about the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, actor Jackie Earle Haley was asked why anyone would want to step into the shoes of Robert Englund in the iconic role of Freddy Krueger. Haley gave an interesting answer. He pointed out that the studio was going to remake the film whether or not he took the role. Why not see what he cou... Read More

Runner Runner   Runner Runner Blu-ray Review

The internet has probably been as much of a curse as it has been a blessing, and perhaps nowhere is that first tendency as clearly evident as in the case of online gambling. In days of yore, one had to go to physical establishments (most of them in places like Las Vegas) to get a dose of adrenaline as dice were tossed or cards were dealt. But with ... Read More

Don Jon Blu-ray Review
Don Jon   Don Jon Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  01/10/2014 10:46 AM EST
Once the scrawny kid from "3rd Rock From the Sun," Gordon-Levitt has filled out for the role of a modern-day Don Juan, who is first seen deep in the throes of orgasm. Looking like a castaway from "Jersey Shore," gym-built, greasy-haired bartender Jon has been getting his jollies from explicit videos three, four, sometimes 10 tim... Read More

Big Blu-ray Review
Big   Big Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  01/03/2014 4:20 PM EST
It's a truism that kids can't wait to grow up, while adults, especially those of a certain age, wouldn't mind shaving a few years off of their adulthood to return to a more youthful time. That latter formulation is almost always tempered with statements like "if I knew then what I know now," a summation of one of the salient p... Read More

The Family Blu-ray Review
The Family   The Family Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  01/03/2014 3:33 PM EST
Luc Besson's recent film The Family ups the ante of ridiculousness protection by placing an entire family under witness protection and then shipping them off to the picturesque region of Normandy in France. Besson is of course better known for exploiting the visceral action adventure activity of criminals in films like Léon: The Professi... Read More

The Ultimate Life Blu-ray Review

(Chris Rebholz)  01/02/2014 12:37 PM EST
To give you the reader a decent explanation of the film The Ultimate Life I would need to start by giving you a review of the first film The Ultimate Gift, but I haven't so this review may seem a little out of context at certain points, hopefully that won't bother anyone. The Ultimate Life is the sequel to 2007's faith-based inspirational drama The... Read More

Futurama Blu-ray Review
Futurama: Volume 8   Futurama Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/20/2013 5:20 PM EST
Will Futurama rise from the ashes again—again? As fans of the series know, Matt Groening's follow up to his immense global phenomenon The Simpsons has had a rather bizarre, roller coaster-esque ride on various networks, petering out after a mere four seasons in its original broadcast run on Fox (contrasting with the still running Simpsons...

The Lone Ranger Blu-ray Review

(John Delia)  12/19/2013 12:15 PM EST
Galloping onto Blu-ray, the western The Lone Ranger takes center stage in your home theater just in time for holiday giving.  The action packed thriller fills the whole house with excitement and adventure.  The film is exciting and the bonus features are a plus, plus with over 45 minutes of extras.  The release is available in severa...

Prisoners Blu-ray Review
Prisoners   Prisoners Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/17/2013 4:29 PM EST
Much more than the story of two kidnapped children and the desperate father willing to do whatever he can to find them, Prisoners is an unsettling labyrinth of impossible decisions, gut-knotting powerlessness and a twisting, turning Zodiac-esque procedural and mystery more complex than the film's straightforward trailers suggest. Director Ville... Read More
