(Stephen Compall)  8/19/2010 7:49 PM EDT
As if we wish to relive it again, we make the children of humanity grow up much as humanity itself did, steeped in superstition. We are only to be granted the ability to tell the difference between fantasy, wishes, and reality later on; hence, the creation Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kenny. The series has now been turned into a feature leng... Read More

Stargate Universe Blu-ray Review

To resolve a debate posed between two minor characters in "Space", the first episode of this latter half of Stargate Universe's first season: yes, Colonel Young (Louis Ferreira, Shooter) is a murderer, though not so much a cold-blooded as a hot-blooded one.  I think, absent events to follow in "Space", he would be convi...

(Marco Chacon)  8/5/2010 5:09 PM EDT
The story is one that has become popular these days; it is one of an eccentric genius who teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes. In this case, the genius is Neal Caffrey (the dashing-as-required, Matthew Bomer) who we first meet in prison as he is a jack-of-all-trades super thief. After executing an effortless breakout of a f... Read More

I thought I'd seen Our Family Wedding before.  To wit, there are two different cultures to be presented here.  They're different, because they're different.  And what happens when you put them together?  They clash.  But you know that they're human, and humans are clever enough to figure out how to get along...

Some time ago, Cop Out director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy) played a minor role in Bruce Willis (Die Hard, The Sixth Sense) action vehicle Live Free or Die Hard.  He told this story in one of his Evening specials.  At some point later, Willis found that Smith was a real live writer and director of real live-action movies, and contac...

(Nathan M rose)  7/21/2010 1:40 PM EDT
Battling it's way onto Blu-ray and DVD this summer, comes Warner Bros' remake of Clash of the Titans. The ultimate struggle for power pins men against kings, and kings against Gods. But the war between the Gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a God, but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington), is helpless to save his family f... Read More

(Nathan M Rose)  7/20/2010 1:30 PM EDT
It is unbelievable, but since its theatrical release only two months ago, The Losers, will be debuting and coming to Blu-ray this July. Based on the comic book of the same name, The Losers is an explosive tale of double cross and revenge. "The Losers" centers upon the members of an elite U.S. Special Forces unit sent into the Bolivian jun... Read More

(Nathan M Rose)  7/12/2010 1:56 PM EDT
The 1980s are back with a bang this summer as the quirky spring 2010 comedy hit, Hot Tub Time Machine, makes its way on DVD and Blu-ray. The plot is so simplistic that it isn’t even funny; four pals are stuck in a rut in adulthood -- Adam (John Cusack, Grosse Pointe Blank, 2012) has just been dumped, Lou (Rob Corddry, Law and Order, W) is a ...

(Stephen Compall)  7/8/2010 9:59 AM EDT
Let us say that, like Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman, Jack & Bobby, Gamer), you find yourself in great need of a quick education in ancient Greek mythology, despite a preternatural understanding of the written language.  Then, perhaps, rather than returning to primary school for the parts you seem to have missed, you could watch Percy Jackson...

Do you remember how great things once were? It was then that your helicopter pilot wouldn't insist you put out your cigar in flight. When chewing tobacco would make you virile and hardly ever ill, and every man knew what the mission was, even when they didn't. Everywhere you looked in those days, things were different. For one thing, you on... Read More
