Skyfall Blu-ray Review

For a while, it looked like Skyfall might not happen, as MGM's financial woes caused the film to be tabled, and some of the major players moved on to other projects. But no one has ever been able to keep James Bond down for long. Besides, resurrection and rebirth are among Skyfall's major themes. Thus it was that production resumed in Janua... Read More

(Stephen Compall)  02/14/2013 8:42 AM EST
Following Caprica, a beautiful if unwatched experiment in radically altering the Battlestar Galactica formula, Syfy tried to get back to the roots of the franchise's mass appeal — battles with Cylons — in the online series/TV film Blood & Chrome. The result is a tasty morsel for Galactica fans, if ultimately failing to deeply sa... Read More

One of the best rock musicals of the 70s A Star is Born comes to Blu-ray for the first time.  Nicely presented inside a book featuring many of the scenes from the film, the special disc should bring back a lot of memories from an era when rock was king.  The film features Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand giving performances that bu...

Peter Pan: a long-awaited addition to Disney's Blu-ray canon that should make anyone's collection feel more whole, more complete. It isn't just a personal favorite either.

(John Delia)  01/30/2013 10:54 AM EST
When you first start watching the just released DVD of Femme Fatales Season 1 the first thing probably crossing your mind would be "just another skin flick".  But, after getting into the stories I found more like a Twilight Zone with stylish nudity and sex.  Packed with some very intriguing stories in 13 twisty and twisted episo...

(John Delia)  01/28/2013 9:05 AM EST
While I am not a huge fan of Woody Allen's work I did find Hannah and Her Sisters an enjoyable film to watch.  Now on Blu-ray for the first time the Academy Award winning film has exceptional acting, reasonably good direction and a story that does compel one to keep going to Allen's interesting choice of a finale. Nicely transferred from scree... Read More

Winner of six Oscars including the coveted Best Picture Mrs. Miniver topped the box-office in 1942 with a war story that inspires.
