Monsters University Blu-ray Review

It wasn't so long ago that Pixar rejected the idea of churning out sequels to its greatest hits. Toy Story was the exception rather than the rule, having been succeeded by two critically hailed sequels -- the first in 1999, the second in 2010 -- each one arguably better than the last. But then, in 2011, came John Lasseter's middle of the ro... Read More

Nine years ago, few film fans knew the name James Wan. Then along came a little genre gem about a devious serial killer with a penchant for traps. Wan's shockingly low budget Saw (2004) not only took audiences by storm, it became one of the year's biggest overnight Hollywood success stories; one that spawned six sequels over the next six Ha...

There is a time and a place for a frank but thoughtful critique of a veteran filmmaker's love letter to genre cinema. There's also a time and a place to geek out, cast off adulthood, fully embrace the rock-em sock-em joy of a wildly entertaining and ludicrously action-packed summer spectacle, and laugh, clap and cheer like a ten-year-old fa...

Glee Blu-ray Review
Glee: The Complete Fourth Season   Glee Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/16/2013 12:18 PM EST
The world of Glee has itself begun to confront the built in shelf life of its format by moving several major characters of previous seasons—notably Lea Michele's Rachel—off onto the next phases of their lives, while still attempting to maintain a central focus on Lima, Ohio's rather improbable McKinley High. That means that ther... Read More

Bones Blu-ray Review

Have you visited your local police station lately? Now, you don't need to confess to any nefarious activities to answer in the affirmative: this is a completely innocent question designed to merely ferret out how many readers might be aware of what their local precincts look like. My own nowhere near representative experience with such matters ... Read More

It's human nature to fear the unknown, and that's not something that has changed with time. Even in today's ultra fast-paced, always-on, ever-connected, and constantly-evolving world, there's still that uneasiness in the stomach, that hesitation brought on by doubt, that terror of leaving a comfort zone when it comes time to try new...

While Irwin Allen's name will probably forever be associated with the disaster genre which he helped to formulate with such epochal films as The Poseidon Adventure and The Towering Inferno, for hordes of Baby Boomers he's at least as much remembered for a glut of sixties and early seventies television science fiction outings, including Lost...

Curse of Chucky Blu-ray Review

(John Delia)  10/08/2013 3:04 PM EST
Putting another stunner on the home screen, Curse of Chucky gets released on Blu-ray/DVD + Digital combo pack just in time for the horror season.  Packed with the kind of biting power needed to provide chills and thrills, the sixth of the Child's Play films changes it up a bit giving viewers a blast to the past.  Could this 25th anniversa...

Fright Night 2: New Blood Blu-ray Review
Fright Night 2: New Blood   Fright Night 2: New Blood Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/08/2013 9:25 AM EST
Tom Holland's 1985 Fright Night may not be the unrecognized "immortal classic" its fiercest followers claim it is, but one thing it resolutely is not is pretentious. Fright Night was a charming, even sweet, entry in the comedy horror sweepstakes, a nice combination of chills and laughs as a hapless teenager enlisted the aid of a once ... Read More

The Wizard of Oz Blu-ray Review
The Wizard of Oz: 75th Anniversary Edition 3D   The Wizard of Oz Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  10/07/2013 3:38 PM EST
Well I have good news bad news for the newly upgraded The Wizard of Oz to 3D.  The very good news is that the 3D works extremely well played on the 3D home theater system.  Its vibrant, amazing and definitely a winner.  The not so good news involves those who purchased the Blu-ray that came out in 2009.  If you purchase the Blu-...
