The House Blu-ray Review

(Leonard Buccellato)  10/12/2017 9:56 PM EDT
Seeing Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler's names attached to this, I thought the movie was going to be really funny. Seeing the trailer helped to cement this thought but after watching it, it proved not quite up to the task.  The House Blu-ray from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment was released on Oct. 10th. Director Andrew Jay Cohen's comed... Read More

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/10/2017 11:25 AM EDT
In 1981, a musical by Henry Krieger and Tom Eyen called Dreamgirls hit Broadway.  Based on the 1960's R&B acts trying and somewhat succeeding to make it in show business, it was nominated for 13 Tony awards, ultimately winning 6 plus two Grammys as well.  In 2006, Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast – 2017 live-acti...

What would you do if you found a magic lamp that could grant you wishes?  What would you wish for?  What if the lamp was instead a Chinese music box with an ancient inscription you can't quite decipher but you soon realize you can make those wishes?  What happens when you start to realize those wishes had dire consequences?  Tha...

It's been almost 30 years since A Fish Called Wanda was in movie theaters. Co-written, co-directed and starring John Cleese (Monty Python and the Holy Grail), the smart comedy was nominated for three Academy Awards with Kevin Kline (Dave) winning for Best Supporting Actor. Arrow Video decided the movie needed a rem...

976-Evil Blu-ray Review
976-Evil   976-Evil Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  10/02/2017 4:49 PM EDT
Of all the horror movies released in 1989 (Nightmare on Elm Street 5, Halloween 5, Friday the 13th Part 8), 976-EVIL was probably the most disappointing. The pedigree of the longtime horror icon, Robert Englund, could not be disputed; he played Freddy Kruger after all and as of 1989 he did it five times. He starred in the Tobe Hooper... Read More

Lethal Weapon Blu-ray Review
Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season   Lethal Weapon Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/21/2017 2:10 PM EDT
In 1987, the movie Lethal Weapon brought us the comedy/action team of Mel Gibson (Braveheart) and Danny Glover (Shooter) and it was so genius it spawned three sequels.  Almost 20 years after the last film hit theaters, the powers that be (seemingly out of fresh ideas) decided to make it into a television series. Season One aired... Read More

The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Tenth Season   The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/20/2017 11:55 AM EDT
For the past ten years, the television show The Big Bang Theory has made us laugh.  With a renewal for at least two more seasons, we can rest assured the gang will all be together and geeky as ever.  This group of "scientists" has taught us more than we ever thought they could and has made being a nerd seem almost cool...
