Family Guy DVD Review
The Complete Fourteenth Season   Family Guy DVD Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  12/19/2016 11:10 AM EDT
Seth MacFaralane's Family Guy has seen a monumental amount of success. This show, as a whole, is beyond clever and bordering on genius. Some may think that my use of that word is a bit much, but I disagree. The intelligent and funny scripts intertwined with hysterical cutaways are what truly makes this show stand out among other adult-oriented ... Read More

Hellraiser Blu-ray Review
Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy   Hellraiser Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  12/19/2016 10:28 AM EDT
I'm not much of a gambling man but I'd take the safe bet and say that if you're reading this review, you're a Clive Barker/Hellraiser fan.  I will even go further and venture a guess, you're either debating the purchase of the Scarlet Box or you have already taken the plunge and you want to see what our thoughts are on the ...

We all know that Storks deliver babies.  I mean, come on, that's what our parents told us.  And that's what we tell our children.  But wait, we will all have some explaining to do, because in the Warner Bros. movie, Storks, they don't deliver babies – they deliver packages.Yes, you read it correctly.  Pack...

If your holidays this year are so stressful your about to scream… why not binge watch Fox's first season of Scream Queens out on DVD!If you haven't heard of Scream Queens as of yet, it's a fun, campy, Comedy/Horror series that kinda feels like it plays off of the Scream series of movies that were released back in the end of ...

Suicide Squad 4K Ultra HD Review
Suicide Squad   Suicide Squad 4K Ultra HD Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  12/13/2016 10:54 AM EDT
Supervillains, anti-heroes, or bad guys?  As Shakespeare said, "That is the question".  Okay, he wasn't referring to DC's Suicide Squad movie, but who's really checking?  All we know is that Superman's dead, Batman's catching bad guys, Will Smith plays a very expensive hitman, and the Joker's got a girlfriend so crazy that ...

Ben-Hur Blu-ray Review
Ben-Hur   Ben-Hur Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/12/2016 9:17 PM EDT
Ben-Hur – the title alone conjures up images of excellence in literature and filmmaking.  In 1880, the novel was published with modest success originally but became more popular when it was recommended reading by Clergy.  Then, in 1925, it was made into a silent film and also became successful.  In 1959, it was once again reima...

Morgan 4K Ultra HD Review
Morgan   Morgan 4K Ultra HD Review
(Nathan M Rose)  12/12/2016 4:20 PM EDT
Ever since the advent of computer sciences, medical breakthroughs have been happening at a lightning fast pace. Starting in the 1990s with the human genome project and the cloning of Dolly the sheep, people have feared scientists might tinker too much with human DNA. As is the norm, art imitates life and in the past few decades films have popped up... Read More

The Town 4K Ultra HD Review
The Town   The Town 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/06/2016 11:35 PM EDT
They say people are a product of their environment, although I'm not exactly sure who "they" are.  However, for one Boston area neighborhood, it seems to be a true statement. Charlestown, a lower income area, raises a large number of criminals, especially bank robbers. For Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck; The Account... Read More

I Am Legend 4K Ultra HD Review
I Am Legend   I Am Legend 4K Ultra HD Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  12/06/2016 1:43 PM EDT
If you had to abandon your city because of an outbreak of a zombie vampire apocalypse, leave everything behind, and put every fiber of your being into the one person who might be able to save the world, who would it be?  You'd want someone with a suave attitude, good looks, a sarcastic sense of humor to help keep him alive and the dialogue int...

Argo 4K Ultra HD Review
Argo   Argo 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/06/2016 1:34 PM EDT
The 1980 hostage crisis in Iran held the world captivated as we watched the drama unfold and prayed for the safe return of the innocent people being held.  With eyes fixed on Tehran, there seemed no end to the standoff, as the rebels kept control of the United States Embassy for 444 days.  Lesser known were the six Americans who fled the ...
