Brave Blu-ray Review
Brave Five-Disc Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray Review   Brave Blu-ray Review
(Roger Longenbach)  11/14/2012 10:46 AM EDT
Now out on Blu-Ray 3D Combo Pack is Brave, Pixar's latest feature film.  Brave is hands-down the most visually stunning animation that Pixar has ever produced.  Unfortunately, the story isn't one of their strongest, and prevents it from being a masterpiece.  The issue is that basically the story is mash up of other Disney stories:&nb...

Vamps Blu-ray Review

(John Delia)  11/12/2012 10:03 AM EDT
Vampire movies are certainly making their way into the crowded horror market and a little comedy called Vamps has been released on Blu-ray just in time for the holidays.  Not your average repulsive bloodletting fantasy flick, this film tries to entertain making the hideous a laughing matter.  While the premise does warrant a chick flick a...

(Paul Kates)  11/7/2012 11:03 AM EDT
For the past fifty years, one name has been synonymous with the action movie: James Bond. Fifty years in one profession, spanning 22 feature films, and you would expect the British secret agent with a licence to kill would be worthy of retirement and a decent pension, and that may have been the case when news broke in 2010 of financial troubles at ...

Filled with action and comedy the animated film grabs you from the start and involves you in a tale of wonderment and hope.  From sassy to sinister, clumsy to crusher ... Read More

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Blu-ray Review
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Blu-ray Review   Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  10/31/2012 9:06 AM EDT
Set in the 1800s this action thriller has an odd title, one that turns history on its ear.  Called Abraham Lincoln:Vampire Hunter, the film exaggerates the famous US President's penchant for destroying evil.  More of a horror flick than a history lesson I found the tall tale very entertaining with some excellent CGI to ramp it up. The fil... Read More

I, Robot Blu-ray Review
I, Robot 3D Blu-ray Review   I, Robot Blu-ray Review
(Eric English)  10/30/2012 3:49 PM EDT
As a society we grow more reliant on technological advances everyday. Predictions of how the world would look in a post apocalyptic modern era have largely fallen by the wayside as we ushered in an age of information rather than succumb to our autonomous robot overlords. But what if the opposite were true? 2004's blockbuster "I, Robot"... Read More

Avatar 3D Blu-ray Review   Avatar Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  10/29/2012 10:31 AM EDT
Powerful, amazing, entertaining and captivating describes the way I feel about James Cameron's Avatar, a film that's a treat for sci-fi fans and action junkies around the world. Avatar has been recently released in a combo pack that includes Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD all in one box set. The movie gets a startlingly clear and clean transfe... Read More

Pete's Dragon Blu-ray Review
Pete's Dragon: 35th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Review   Pete's Dragon Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/29/2012 9:32 AM EDT
As a child, there were four films in constant rotation in my life: Return of the Jedi, The Secret of NIMH, The NeverEnding Story and Pete's Dragon. There were other movies scattered about as well. Some beloved, some not-so-beloved. But none were worn more ragged, none were more treasured, none more committed to memory than those four. In the ye... Read More

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Theatrical Review
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Theatrical Review   Silent Hill: Revelation 3D Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/28/2012 1:17 PM EDT
Since 2009, there have been four "Paranormal Activity" pictures. The last "Silent Hill" movie came out in 2006, which is practically a century in horror film franchise years. Genre fans have short attention spans, making the delayed appearance of "Silent Hill: Revelation" a real head scratcher, especially after the ori... Read More
