Jonah Hex DVD Review
Jonah Hex   Jonah Hex DVD Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/19/2010 6:28 PM EDT
Jonah Hex is a classic tale of revenge told through the landscape of the Old West. At least that's the tale that was printed in comics. To put it simply, Jonah Hex was born in the early 1800's to a father who sold him into slavery at a very young age. He ended up working for a tribe of Indians and slowly earning their respect. After taking part in ... Read More

The Exorcist Blu-ray Review
The Exorcist   The Exorcist Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/17/2010 11:08 AM EDT
The Exorcist is quite possibly the scariest movie of all time. It would be hard pressed to find those out there who feel differently. Even if that were the case they would at least have to acknowledge the fact that it set the bar for what horror is about. The movie itself isn't just gore and splatter on the screen. It brings also a sense of tension... Read More

The Hangover Blu-ray Review
The Hangover Extreme Edition   The Hangover Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/15/2010 3:48 PM EDT
Who hasn't seen The Hangover? It was a surprise hit of 2009 and went on to become one of the most celebrated comedies in movie history. Who would have thought that a movie about 4 guys who go down to Vegas for a bachelor party, lose the groom, and spend the rest of the movie trying to find him would become as popular as it did? There is even ru... Read More

The Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of The Ring Blu-ray Review
Lord of The Rings Trilogy   The Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of The Ring Blu-ray Review
(Stephen Compall)  10/15/2010 2:02 PM EDT
I'm planning a trip this weekend, so naturally, I'm finding myself once again considering the diminishing returns problem.  It's the mathematical rule that makes every extra dollar spent after a certain point more like burning money, every extra lane added to a road after a certain point more like pouring concrete for the hell of it, and every...

The Last of the Mohicans Blu-ray Review
The Last of the Mohicans   The Last of the Mohicans Blu-ray Review
(Roger Longenbach)  10/13/2010 6:42 PM EDT
Out on Blu-Ray from 20th Century Fox is The Last of the Mohicans, but rather than being the original theatrical release, this version is Michael Mann's "Definitive Cut".  The Definitive Cut adds several scenes that were not seen in the original release, mainly revolving around the relationship between Hawkeye and Cora Munro. ...

Three Kings Blu-ray Review
Three Kings   Three Kings Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/07/2010 9:57 AM EDT
Some movies don't hit the mark the second they hit the theaters. For whatever reason people just don't gravitate towards, it could be the trailer, the actors in the film or the plot, but it just never gets off the ground the way it should. What ends up happening sometimes is that same movie will develop a following after the Blu-ray release and slo... Read More

Chuck Blu-ray Review
Chuck: The Complete Third Season   Chuck Blu-ray Review
(Stephen Compall)  09/20/2010 7:06 PM EDT
There's nothing quite so compelling of excellence from humanity than impending doom.  From followers of Rapture theology, it breeds a love/hate relationship with apocalypse.  To corporate takeover specialists, it provides an effective tool to keep newly-acquired managers delivering profits for the new big brother.  What else can ...

Sons of Anarchy Blu-ray Review
Sons of Anarchy Season Two   Sons of Anarchy Blu-ray Review
(Marco Chacon)  09/20/2010 1:23 PM EDT
With Season 2 of the Sons of Anarchy we are back in the small (fictional) town of Charming where we see the Sons of Anarchy Season 2 gang as both the problem and the solution to violent crime.  This muscular, motor-cycle drama keeps its Shakespearian tragedy overtones as the group hurls towards bloody, self-destruction for another knuckle-biti...

The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Third Season   The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  09/20/2010 11:26 AM EDT
Big Bang Theory could easily be a simple uninteresting show about four very smart but "nerdy" guys who lives in the same apartment building as a very attractive waitress. Initially that was what the show was about; the main character of Leonard (Johnny Galecki) had a large crush on the new girl next door, Penny (Kaley Cuoco). Most of the ... Read More

Marmaduke Blu-ray Review
Marmaduke   Marmaduke Blu-ray Review
(Eric English)  09/15/2010 10:02 AM EDT
Based on the long running newspaper comic strip of the same name "Marmaduke" came to the big screen as a live action/computer animated film in the summer of 2010. Surrounding the story of a Great Dane named Marmaduke and the antics of dealing with his size and less than average intelligence, the one panel strip has been running since the ... Read More
