Lets get this out the way first Dumb and Dumber To is …well….dumb, I mean REALLY dumb. However, if you are familiar with the original Farrelly Brothers film, Dumb and Dumber (1994), you would except this. The story is pretty simplistic. After twenty years of Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey; Ace Ventura, The Mask) pretending to be cat... Read More

Archer Blu-ray Review
Archer: The Complete Season Five   Archer Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  01/27/2015 8:23 AM EDT
A couple of years ago 20th Century Fox launched a new satirical spy drama on their FX channel called Archer. The show caught on due to its tongue-in-cheek off-the-wall humor, it's distinctive style of animation, and the fact that adult audiences found the show good enough to wind down to after a days work.  For four seasons Archer pre...

With the plethora of young adult science fiction novels being snatched up by every studio in creation and turned into films, it is hard to disseminate the few good ones from the many bad ones.
