Heat Blu-ray Review
Heat: Director’s Definitive Edition   Heat Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  05/09/2017 10:58 AM EDT
Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner… It was with these words the world was introduced to the trailer for the Michael Mann (Public Enemies) film that would become a classic. Bringing together two powerhouse actors face to face for the firs... Read More

Orange Is The New Black Blu-ray Review
The Complete Fourth Season   Orange Is The New Black Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/09/2017 9:56 AM EDT
In the past, there have been television shows about life in prison.  That is nothing original.  However, most of them focus on men in prison so when Orange is the New Black, which views life in a women's correctional facility, debuted on Netflix on July 11, 2013, it was somewhat groundbreaking.  Not only was it differen...

Fifty Shades Darker Blu-ray Review
Fifty Shades Darker   Fifty Shades Darker Blu-ray Review
(Judith Raymer)  05/08/2017 5:07 PM EDT
For those who might have missed the theatrical release (and, those who didn't), the highly anticipated Fifty Shades Darker is being released on Blu-ray & DVD (with a Digital HD copy included).  The explosively popular second installment of the erotic (ahem) literary Fifty Shades series, and sequel to the "not e...

Divorce Blu-ray Review
The Complete First Season   Divorce Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/08/2017 4:22 PM EDT
HBO has more original programming than ever before and the majority of it is top notch, award winning fare.  This year, they added another show to their line up and it seems to want to continue the tradition of excellence they have put forth.  Divorce debuted on October 9, 2016, and by November it had been renewed for a second season. &nb...

The Salesman Blu-ray Review
The Salesman   The Salesman Blu-ray Review
(Sean Ferguson)  05/02/2017 1:59 PM EDT
It always amazes me as to what makes a picture popular. Is it the stars headlining the film? Is it the studio that releases the film? Is it all the advertising used to promote it? What if it all came down to the story that drove the film? If that were the case, The Salesman would be a box office success right up there alongside Logan... Read More

Gold Blu-ray Review
Gold   Gold Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/02/2017 11:55 AM EDT
In 1995, Bre-X, a Canadian mining company announced to the world they had found significant gold deposits in Busang, Indonesia.  Overnight, they became a huge success and their penny stock suddenly was worth significantly more money per share.  However, by 1997, everything fell apart when independent consultants couldn't replicate the...

A Dog's Purpose Blu-ray Review
A Dog's Purpose   A Dog's Purpose Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/02/2017 10:58 AM EDT
Everyone knows that even before A Dog's Purpose opened in theaters this past January it was embroiled in a scandal.  A video surfaced of what looked like a trainer forcing a terrified dog into a pool of rushing water and animal cruelty allegations were tossed around.  What started out as PR for a movie full of cute dogs ended up...

Animal Kingdom Blu-ray Review
Animal Kingdom: The Complete First Season   Animal Kingdom Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  04/27/2017 4:00 PM EDT
Every family is dysfunctional in some way or another, but the Cody clan takes that idea to new heights.  As the core of the TNT drama Animal Kingdom, based on the critically acclaimed Australian film of the same name, they are as "white trash" as they come.  Drugs, partying and a successful robbery business makes up their core b...

Girl With All The Gifts Blu-ray Review
Girl With All The Gifts   Girl With All The Gifts Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  04/25/2017 8:44 AM EDT
Everything's coming up zombies right now and zombie movies are a hot commodity.  We've seen it countless times now, where an epidemic sweeps the world and people turn into soulless, brain-eating creatures terrorizing those that are still human. While The Girl With All the Gifts encompasses some of those ideas, there is so much more going on wi... Read More

The Founder Blu-ray Review
The Founder   The Founder Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  04/25/2017 8:17 AM EDT
McDonald's and its trademark "Golden Arches" are known worldwide for serving hot food quickly.  In any restaurant you walk into, you will see a sign proclaiming Ray Kroc as its founder.  While not truly incorrect, that statement doesn't reveal the whole story surrounding the multimillion dollar corporation.  Ray Kroc may ha...
