Blended Blu-ray Review

Blended – I am not an Adam Sandler fan.  I have never seen "Happy Gilmore", "Billy Madison" or "The Wedding Singer" and I only got about 30 minutes through "Jack and Jill" before turning it off.   Based on my bias, while I liked "50 First Dates", I wasn't looking forward to sitt... Read More

If you're looking for a bit of nostalgia, the 1971 Disney Classic "Bedknobs and broomsticks" has been released on Blu-ray and DVD.  This extended version restores 20 plus minutes of footage, which was not seen originally in theaters.  Blending live action, animation and musical numbers, Bedknobs is another example of the family ...

Revolution, created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural), comes back for a second and final season on Blu-ray to the delight to fans of  the now canceled show.  While the series started off fairly slowly, it picked up part way through and the second season continued this momentum.Beginning the series six months after season one concluded, we fin...

(Judith Raymer)  08/14/2014 2:38 PM EDT
The night the lights went out on…Lincoln Road.  A power outage affected the entire block.  In the theatre, The Expendables 3 continued to play.  Like the proverbial cockroach.  Except for the sound.  The sound had cut out, and the crowd agreed that the film had just improved ten-fold.  Should Stallone be bored e...

Muppets Most Wanted Blu-ray Review
Muppets Most Wanted   Muppets Most Wanted Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/12/2014 9:07 AM EDT
Muppets Most Wanted is anything but.  Like so many movie sequels it doesn't come close to the original, or in this case, the first movie in the most recent reboot of the Muppets.  Watching the Muppet show growing up was always fun and I am inclined to love almost anything Muppets but this sequel just wasn't good.  I kept looking for ...

If you are a designer car buff and a car racing enthusiast then "Need For Speed" is a movie you definitely want to see.   From fast, exotic cars to beautiful scenery from all over the United States the movie won't disappoint the avid Nascar, muscle car and street racing fan.  However, if you don't like all those things you ...

(Sean Ferguson)  08/05/2014 2:56 PM EDT
I always find it interesting when a film comes out "Starring" someone and the supporting actor or actress steals the thunder away from the main star. And so it goes with Twentieth Century Fox's release of "The Other Woman" starring Cameron Diaz being released to BluRay & DVD this week! In all honesty, it should be "Star... Read More

(Judith Raymer)  07/31/2014 9:56 AM EDT
Marvel Studios does it again!  Cliche? Yes, and yes.  About that...We begin by meeting Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) as a young boy (not) coping with his mother's death, and abducted by an alien ship. Rather than deliver him (to whom, we have yet to discover…his extraterrestrial father, Jason, or one of his foes, perhaps)... Read More
