"Let's do some gratuitous violence". That's the motto that sums up what you can expect from The Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day. The original was a surprise hit not in theaters but on DVD in college dorm rooms. It's love of not only movies but also men who stand up and dish out justice as they see fit instantly caught on and over the ye... Read More

Smallville Blu-ray Review
Smallville: The Complete Ninth Season   Smallville Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  09/03/2010 1:07 PM EDT
Superman. The name is as well known as apple pie. Even if you know nothing about who he is or where he got his start, you at least know his name. It's surprising that a fictional character could have such a broad audience. Especially considering he started out (and still is) a comic book. Comic books, as popular as they have become over the recent ... Read More

Everyone loves a good mystery. We can't help but be curious about something we can't figure out right away. Who can say where it comes from?  It is just an innate quality that most human beings share. Lately in the entertainment world we have seen something of a rebirth of the classic mystery. Mainly it has been within the sci-fi/fantasy realm... Read More

Back in 1981, a low-budget movie that starred Kurt Russell and was directed by John Carpenter (Halloween) entered the movie scene.  It was entitled Escape from New York. Escape from New York takes place in the future (our past now) in the year 1998.  New York has been turned into a maximum-security prison; and once you go in, th...

As if we wish to relive it again, we make the children of humanity grow up much as humanity itself did, steeped in superstition. We are only to be granted the ability to tell the difference between fantasy, wishes, and reality later on; hence, the creation Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kenny. The series has now been turned into a feature leng... Read More

On April 9th, 2010, a very quirky comedy for couples called, Date Night, was released to the movie-going audience. It starred Steve Carell and Tina Fey. Now in August, this zany couple comedy comes home on DVD and Blu-ray -- courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.The plot of Date Night is pretty simplistic and should appeal to anyone that ...

Stargate Universe Blu-ray Review
Stargate Universe - SGU: Season 1.5   Stargate Universe Blu-ray Review
(Stephen Compall)  08/09/2010 9:45 AM EDT
To resolve a debate posed between two minor characters in "Space", the first episode of this latter half of Stargate Universe's first season: yes, Colonel Young (Louis Ferreira, Shooter) is a murderer, though not so much a cold-blooded as a hot-blooded one.  I think, absent events to follow in "Space", he would be convi...

White Collar Blu-ray Review
White Collar: The Complete First Season   White Collar Blu-ray Review
(Marco Chacon)  08/05/2010 5:09 PM EDT
The story is one that has become popular these days; it is one of an eccentric genius who teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes. In this case, the genius is Neal Caffrey (the dashing-as-required, Matthew Bomer) who we first meet in prison as he is a jack-of-all-trades super thief. After executing an effortless breakout of a f... Read More

Our Family Wedding Blu-ray Review
Our Family Wedding   Our Family Wedding Blu-ray Review
(Stephen Compall)  07/27/2010 8:19 PM EDT
I thought I'd seen Our Family Wedding before.  To wit, there are two different cultures to be presented here.  They're different, because they're different.  And what happens when you put them together?  They clash.  But you know that they're human, and humans are clever enough to figure out how to get along...
