Homeland Blu-ray Review
Homeland: The Complete First Season   Homeland Blu-ray Review
(Sean Ferguson)  09/18/2012 9:02 AM EDT
The phone rings. "Honey its me." Imagine yourself a military wife with your husband overseas serving in Afghanistan. Now imagine what it would be like getting that phone call 8 years after your husband was captured and presumably killed by terrorists. Welcome to the world of Jessica Brody (played by Morena Baccarin from series "... Read More

Snow White and the Huntsman Blu-ray Review
Snow White and the Huntsman   Snow White and the Huntsman Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  09/11/2012 7:14 PM EDT
Snow White and the Huntsman, the latest re-imagined fairy tale out of Hollywood, has enough problems without dragging an actress' lapse in judgment and a first-time feature filmmaker's infidelity into the arena. Gorgeous and evocative as its visuals may be, Rupert Sanders' dark fairy tale is a sumptuous but fundamentally flawed fantasy ... Read More

The Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of The Ring Blu-ray Review
The Lord of the Rings Extended Edition 5-Disc Set   The Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of The Ring Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  09/05/2012 8:41 AM EDT
You would be hard pressed to find someone who hasn't heard of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The movies themselves set a new standard for film making and went on to become international successes, even increasing tourism in New Zealand where the film was shot. The third film went on to sweep the Oscars, taking home 11 altogether. The books, wri... Read More

Spaceballs Blu-ray Review
Spaceballs (25th Anniversary Edition)   Spaceballs Blu-ray Review
(Eric English)  09/04/2012 4:01 PM EDT
One of the most celebrated film franchises of all time, ‘Star Wars' is also notably one of the most lampooned. From web classics such as "Troops" ( a parody of ‘COPS' starring Storm Troopers) to the tongue-in-cheek LEGO video game versions of the films the sheer scope of the Star Wars Universe lends itself to satire. Perhaps n... Read More

Sons of Anarchy Blu-ray Review
Sons of Anarchy Season Four   Sons of Anarchy Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  09/04/2012 10:07 AM EDT
Taking off fast, Season Four of Sons of Anarchy keeps up the drama where it left off in this ruthless tale of motorcycles, power and fast money.  I am a fan of this series that features fine acting, a high powered storyline, good direction and on Blu-ray excellent High Definition Television. Recently released on both Blu-ray and DVD you get al... Read More

The Terminator Blu-ray Review
Terminator Anthology   The Terminator Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  08/31/2012 2:45 PM EDT
Suspenseful, thrilling, and visionary, James Cameron's (Avatar) 1984 sci-fi classic The Terminator spawned a host of sequels and even a short-lived television series a few years ago. While the revolutionary special effects may not seem as stunning as they once did in today's CGI world, the film's influence is still being felt in every s... Read More

Once Upon A Time Blu-ray Review
Once Upon a Time: The Complete First Season   Once Upon A Time Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  08/28/2012 11:55 AM EDT
One of the best series this year in my estimation Once Upon a Time: the Complete First Season has been released on Blu-ray in a box set. This fairytale has all the frills of a theatrical release including some nice special effects, commendable acting and a very good storyline. Intriguing, creative and exciting after the first few episodes it's addi... Read More

The Aristocats Blu-ray Review
The Aristocats   The Aristocats Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  08/27/2012 10:16 AM EDT
Disney has long been one of the more conservative studios when it comes to releasing catalog titles on Blu-ray, especially its classic (and even its not-so-classic) animated films. The reasons are many -- some noble, others shrewd -- but chief among them is the sheer amount of time and level of care the studio invests in the restoration and remaste... Read More
