The Big Sick Blu-ray Review
The Big Sick   The Big Sick Blu-ray Review
(Judith Raymer)  09/19/2017 1:57 PM EST
Take a seat and a pause as this mislabeled "romantic comedy" unhooks its sweater from the gate.  Truly a dramedy with strong romantic and comedic overtones, The Big Sick is written by Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) and Emily V. Gordon; and, is based on their real-life events.  While certain elements of their story ha... Read More

Arrow Blu-ray Review
Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season   Arrow Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  09/19/2017 10:53 AM EST
Warner Bros. and DC Comics have created a cult culture following that I want to be a part of.  More importantly, I want my kids to be a part of this cult culture.  Between the two mega companies, they have brought comic book characters to life in a way that the Saturday morning cartoons of the 1960's and beyond failed to do.  Th...

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial   E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/14/2017 4:32 PM EST
I was eleven years old when E.T. The Extra-terrestrial movie came to theaters.  I can remember with fondness being enchanted by the little, brown, wrinkled alien with the big eyes and glowing fingertip who only wanted to find a way back home and the young boy determined to help him.  I also remember running out to buy the best, ...

The Mummy 4K Ultra HD Review
The Mummy   The Mummy 4K Ultra HD Review
(Nathan M Rose)  09/14/2017 3:48 PM EST
In 1999, Universal remade one of their famous monster movies, The Mummy, for modern ages. It was a cross between a horror film, a goofy comedy, and an Indiana Jones film. While it was earmarked as a modestly budgeted film, it became one of the biggest box-office smashes of that year spawning two sequels, a spin-off series, and a... Read More

(Jennifer Broderick)  09/06/2017 8:55 PM EST
Probably the best family-oriented superhero television show on the air has captivated a new generation of DC Comic followers and has regenerated interest with the older generations.  Grabbing our attention at lightning speed with great storylines, a lighthearted romance that can be appreciated by all ages, as well as family values, Warner Bros...
