Crammed with a lot of cool ghouls, wacky witchery and comedic moments the movie Dark Shadows delivers a fun movie that mature audiences will enjoy.  Using Johnny Depp to his utmost bizarre performance capabilities the film delivers for fans of his past legendary roles like Edward Scissorhands, Sweeny Todd, Willy Wonka, Mad Hatter, and Jack Spa...

There are many film critics who have written about the uneven popularity of horror films. Horror films will be popular for a few years, drop off in business, and then see a resurgence. It's also fairly easy to track the trends within horror films. There is a current notion of bringing back the brutal and no-nonsense films of the 70s and we'... Read More

The phone rings. "Honey its me." Imagine yourself a military wife with your husband overseas serving in Afghanistan. Now imagine what it would be like getting that phone call 8 years after your husband was captured and presumably killed by terrorists. Welcome to the world of Jessica Brody (played by Morena Baccarin from series "... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  09/11/2012 7:14 PM EST
Snow White and the Huntsman, the latest re-imagined fairy tale out of Hollywood, has enough problems without dragging an actress' lapse in judgment and a first-time feature filmmaker's infidelity into the arena. Gorgeous and evocative as its visuals may be, Rupert Sanders' dark fairy tale is a sumptuous but fundamentally flawed fantasy ... Read More

The Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of The Ring Blu-ray Review
The Lord of the Rings Extended Edition 5-Disc Set Blu-ray Review   The Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of The Ring Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  09/05/2012 8:41 AM EST
You would be hard pressed to find someone who hasn't heard of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The movies themselves set a new standard for film making and went on to become international successes, even increasing tourism in New Zealand where the film was shot. The third film went on to sweep the Oscars, taking home 11 altogether. The books, wri... Read More

Spaceballs Blu-ray Review
Spaceballs (25th Anniversary Edition) Blu-ray Review   Spaceballs Blu-ray Review
(Eric English)  09/04/2012 4:01 PM EST
One of the most celebrated film franchises of all time, ‘Star Wars' is also notably one of the most lampooned. From web classics such as "Troops" ( a parody of ‘COPS' starring Storm Troopers) to the tongue-in-cheek LEGO video game versions of the films the sheer scope of the Star Wars Universe lends itself to satire. Perhaps n... Read More

Sons of Anarchy Blu-ray Review
Sons of Anarchy Season Four Blu-ray Review   Sons of Anarchy Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  09/04/2012 10:07 AM EST
Taking off fast, Season Four of Sons of Anarchy keeps up the drama where it left off in this ruthless tale of motorcycles, power and fast money.  I am a fan of this series that features fine acting, a high powered storyline, good direction and on Blu-ray excellent High Definition Television. Recently released on both Blu-ray and DVD you get al... Read More
