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...

White Collar DVD Review
White Collar: Season Four   White Collar DVD Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/22/2013 8:39 AM EST
I've reviewed my fair share of movies and TV shows. A number of them have come from the USA Network. Of all of them, I would say that White Collar is easily my favorite. The rich well developed characters and the fun stories are so addicting.  While Season 4 seemed to be hitting a bit off the mark as with previous seasons, I still fo...

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...

(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

New Girl DVD Review
New Girl: The Complete Second Season   New Girl DVD Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/07/2013 4:27 PM EST
I wondered how they were going to top the first season of "New Girl" but they managed to make this second season even better.  "New Girl" is easily one of the best comedies on television right now.  It is hip, funny, packs a great cast and some amazing writing. There is perfect balance of comedy and drama as well in th... Read More

The Hangover Part III Blu-ray Review
The Hangover Part III   The Hangover Part III Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/07/2013 3:16 PM EST
Before it birthed a trilogy, Todd Phillips' The Hangover was an overnight smash and surprise box office behemoth, earning over $460 million worldwide. It split audiences -- some declared it the comedy of the year, others continue to wonder what all the fuss was about -- but those who embraced the Wolfpack from the get-go at least had good reaso...
