Buffy The Vampire Slayer Blu-ray Review
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8 Motion Comic   Buffy The Vampire Slayer Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  01/09/2011 9:28 PM EDT
For most of us we get the majority of our information from the Internet. So its not surprising that other forms of entertainment find their way to this medium for newer audiences; comic books are no exception. Back in the mid 1990's Buffy the Vampire Slayer came to television and went on to become a very popular as well as successful show. Whe... Read More

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps Blu-ray Review
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps   Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  01/07/2011 2:01 PM EDT
The release of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps on DVD/Blu-ray brings a lot of good features.  Viewing the film itself in this format and venue allows you to slow down the action, replay a scene that may have been misunderstood and allows you to play it whenever you want.  Well I'm sure you already knew that, but I just wanted to emphasize...

Machete Blu-ray Review

(Nathan M Rose)  01/05/2011 4:07 PM EDT
Back in 2007 a movie called Grindhouse hit the theaters.  It was directed by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, and styled in such a way to bring back that nostalgia feeling of the exploitation drive-in classics from the 1970's.  In between the films, the filmmakers inserted fake trailers. Such was the case for a B-movie trailer,... Read More

(Marco Chacon)  01/03/2011 5:06 PM EDT
When my wife asked which movie I had received for review, I didn't tell her the name -- I just hummed the tune, and she paused and said, "The A-Team!   I think that is an impressive indication of the original's pervasive influence; my wife grew up in Haitian Catholic boarding schools.  As Hollywood adapts our childhood memori...

Rush Hour Blu-ray Review
Rush Hour   Rush Hour Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/23/2010 12:17 PM EDT
Who doesn't love a buddy cop movie? It all started way back in the eighties with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Their on screen chemistry starting with the first of four Lethal Weapon movies set a bar all action/comedy movies to come. There have been many incarnations of this type over the years, and with varied combinations. The one, though, that br... Read More

The movie Cyrus focuses on the life of a man who has succumbed to the idea of being alone for the rest of his life.

(Roger Longenbach)  12/05/2010 6:36 PM EDT
I did not have the privilege of seeing this movie when it was released in theatres last summer.  It was on my list of movies to see but things just didn't work out that way.  So I watched it for the first time on Blu-Ray when screening it for this review. This movie was marketed incorrectly – it was shown in the trailers as bei...

Doctor Who Blu-ray Review
Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series   Doctor Who Blu-ray Review
(Stephen Compall)  11/21/2010 7:48 PM EDT
Perhaps the most difficult question to answer about Doctor Who, despite its 31-and-counting television seasons of storytelling, is "What is Doctor Who about?"  The reductionist approach, "It's about an alien who travels through time in his blue box with some companions and has adventures", though literally accurate, is ...
