The Hunchback Of Notre Dame Blu-ray Review

"The Hunchback of Notre Dame" is another one of Disney's underrated films. This was released in the mid 90′s right when Pixar made their mark with their computer generated animated films like "Toy Story". "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" didn't make the cut with its "boring" 2D animation and was not given ... Read More

"Mulan" was at the tail end of Disney's hand-drawn animation success and it seems as though it was one Disney's more underrated successes.  The music and songs are memorable and it has fun characters like Mushu (Eddie Murphy).  The film also creates another classic Disney princess, who is not only pretty but also very strong...

When "Brother Bear" first hit theaters, it seemed that Disney was slipping quite a bit with their animated films but looking at it again with a little more age and wisdom adds a little something different this time around. "Brother Bear" is not a perfect film and in fact it's one of the last classically animated films from D... Read More

Before Peter Jackson's take on the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the closest J.R.R. Tolkien fans ever got to a live-action film adaptation of Middle Earth was 1988's Willow, which borrows heavily from the writer's alternate medieval universe. Besides dueling sorcerers, castle sieges, and trolls, both works feature diminutive heroes who hee... Read More

Disney is keenly aware of the appeal and reach of its catalog, down to the best and worst films under the Mouse House banner. Titles like Cinderella and Peter Pan arrive separately and to great fanfare, while other titles shuffle onto shelves en masse, sans the red-carpet treatment afforded their Platinum and Diamond Edition brethren. Last year, it... Read More

Olympus Has Fallen Theatrical Review

(John Delia)  3/22/2013 9:06 AM EDT
One of the best action films this year, Olympus Has Fallen provides continuous action, intrigue and drama with a subject fresh in the news.  Adding a bit of realism during the release of the film is the recent activity in North Korea making this film a possible wakeup call. This work of fiction by Film District gives a chilling reminder that w... Read More

(John Delia)  3/21/2013 10:08 PM EDT
Glitz, glamor, gross, guns, and gratuitous nudity, violence, drugs and sex, that's the sum of the new film Spring Breakers in theaters this weekend.  While they bill the film as a comedy, there's not much of that and as for drama the acting's so poor it's more laughable than tragic. I will say that they did get something right for the target a... Read More

You've seen Ice Age, maybe even remember The Flint Stones, but they can't hold a candle to The Croods, a prehistoric family that puts the an A in adventure and animation with characters that are downright silly and I mean that in a good way. The very funny script, excellent 3D and a fine recognizable voice cast are the reasons to take your family t... Read More

Admission Theatrical Review

(John Delia)  3/21/2013 10:01 PM EDT
An interesting film for the subject matter that's shows the inner workings of a student Admissions Department of a major college and a spoof that dampens the credibility of that office plagues the film Admission, now in theaters. The film could have easily been an episode on a television show rather than a major release at the movies.The admissions... Read More

From flying fish to tiger strikes Life of Pi comes to home video with an adventure that will startle, amaze and exhilarate your senses.  The movie received 11 Oscar nominations and won 5 including Best Director for Ang Lee.  The production features some of the best cinematography I have ever seen on home video, especially the knock out 3D...
