Bringing back two of my favorite cartoon characters Sully and Mike with a prequel called Monsters University, Pixar presents renewed delight.  The madness that the two opposites brought to Monsters Inc more than ten years ago doubles in Monsters University, while providing a lot of heart and a college year full of laughs. A follow up to a...

World War Z Theatrical Review

The opening sequence in the zombie thriller World War Z gets so intense that I white knuckled as I grabbed the arms of my seat, the film's that shocking.  These 15 minutes alone are worth the price of admission.  It's like watching a Roland Emmerich film on steroids (Day After Tomorrow, 2012) only more daunting.  If you like films th...

Killing Lincoln Blu-ray Review

(Chris Rebholz)  06/18/2013 3:31 PM EST
Between Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, and the numerous novels and non-fiction works published about the sixteenth president recently, 2012 was the year of Honest Abe's pop-culture revival. Not that he's ever really gone out of style. Lincoln has been the American Moses—a saintly symbol representing j... Read More

Taking special effects and sound to a new level Jack the Giant Slayer entertains with adventure and excitement.  The audience for the film targets teen males to thirties and women who like action films.  The movie will be released on Blu-ray in a special combo pack that includes the DVD, UltraViolet and a code for a 14 Day XBOX Life Gold ...

(John Delia)  06/12/2013 11:07 AM EST
The bold, dazzling and dramatic Oz the Great and Powerful comes to 3D Blu-ray with excellent quality. Nearly critic proof, the film brought one of the largest box office returns for 2013. However, although the film is a masterpiece of cinematography and CGI, the acting and direction do have problems.  The film has also been released in a Blu-r... Read More

(Roger Longenbach)  06/12/2013 10:28 AM EST
For the fifth time since 1988, Bruce Willis has strapped on the badge of John McClain, a cop who happens to have really bad luck being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  This time, he travels to Russia in order to find his son, Jack (played by Jai Courtney).  Apparently, Jack has been estranged from the rest of the family and finally ...

Taking a walk on the dark side for a comic book favorite, Man of Steel blazes into theaters under the direction of Zack Snyder this weekend and he's aiming at taking over Iron Man as the best box-office superhero.  The cast, crew and story are impeccable providing a brooding look into the life of Superman and the battle for planet Earth. Yet t... Read More

(John Delia)  06/11/2013 10:23 AM EST
In a smart move by Seth Rogen for his fans things start getting Looney bins in his new film This Is The End, an apocalyptic film that features most all his old pals and then some.  The movie isn't more than a goof on the end of the world, but it scorches when it comes to the comedy the stars bring to the screen.  If you've ever wa...

(John Delia)  06/06/2013 3:56 PM EST
The comedies are starting to invade movie theaters this summer, some raunchy others just for fun and The Internship fits into the latter genre of a good old fashion laugher.  With two of my favorite comedians teaming up for the first time since Wedding Crashers, this little ditty had me in stitches most of the time.  If you like wacky com...

Teen Wolf DVD Review

(John Delia)  06/04/2013 8:28 AM EST
One of the better series for teens that enjoy a fix of horror, Teen Wolf, has released their second season on DVD.  It's darker than original film starring Michael J. Fox in 1885, and has very good acting, a good continuing story and sufficient character development.  Directed at the youth audience the third season of Teen Wolf begins tod... Read More
