Dredd Blu-ray Review
Dredd 3D   Dredd Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  01/04/2013 4:30 PM EDT
Outside of a small cult following, 2000 AD comic book character Judge Dredd was unknown in the United States until, back in 1995, Sylvester Stallone tried to bring the character mainstream with the Judge Dredd film. The thematic elements of the comic book series were toned down for mainstream audiences, alienating the characters fans.With the resur... Read More

Around the world the financial markets are in serious turmoil. Hoping to increase his wealth, financial wiz Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) has started betting against the yuan, convinced that it is only a matter of time before the Chinese economy collapses.

Trouble With the Curve Blu-ray Review
Trouble With the Curve   Trouble With the Curve Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/28/2012 11:24 AM EDT
Trouble with the Curve is a neat 'n tidy counterpoint to the much better film Moneyball, bemoaning the long lost art of baseball scouting over the cold, faceless statistics of major league number crunching. The movie's story offers gruff romanticism over game-changing mathematics. Family drama over closed door shake-ups. And a very differen... Read More

Dick Tracy Blu-ray Review
Dick Tracy   Dick Tracy Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/17/2012 9:27 AM EDT
Warren Beatty's Dick Tracy is the bright, cheerful cousin to Tim Burton's Batman. When Tracy was released the year after Burton's film, it felt something like a repeat. (It didn't help that Danny Elfman scored both pictures.) But now, after over two decades of tortured heroes in dark films inspired by comics and graphic novels, Trac... Read More

Butter DVD Review
Butter   Butter DVD Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/12/2012 10:32 AM EDT
There was tremendous potential for "Butter" to throw a spotlight on the rigors of butter sculpting competitions, drinking in the varied characters that populate this odd hobby while taking note of the exceptional skill required to turn slabs of dairy into art. Instead, "Butter" goes for a swipe of irreverence, poking fun with Mi... Read More

The Odd Life of Timothy Green Blu-ray Review
The Odd Life of Timothy Green   The Odd Life of Timothy Green Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/12/2012 9:06 AM EDT
"The Odd Life of Timothy Green" forces an enormous amount of whimsy down the throat of its audience in the early moments of the picture, though it doesn't take very long to develop a taste for the sweet stuff. Heartfelt and genuinely magical, this Disney release is perfect for the family, touching on themes of parenthood for adults, while... Read More

The Simpsons DVD Review
Simpsons: Season 15   The Simpsons DVD Review
(John Delia)  12/04/2012 9:35 AM EDT
Whenever I think of the Simpsons, Homer flashes in my mind with those pop-eyes, pot belly and 12 o'clock shadow and most often with a dysfunctional grin. He hasn't changed much over the years and with the Simpsons Fifteenth Season just released, you can expect more of the fun loving guy that's the brunt of the comedy. You get a lot for your do...

The Apparition Blu-ray Review
The Apparition   The Apparition Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/03/2012 10:47 AM EDT
"The Apparition" contains less story than a Twilight film. In fact, the trailer on the Blu-ray for "The Apparition" is actually more of a movie than "The Apparition." A wildly incoherent effort that spends most of its running time avoiding its own plot, "The Apparition" is one of those major studio releases t... Read More
