The Apparition Blu-ray Review
The Apparition   The Apparition Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/03/2012 10:47 AM EDT
"The Apparition" contains less story than a Twilight film. In fact, the trailer on the Blu-ray for "The Apparition" is actually more of a movie than "The Apparition." A wildly incoherent effort that spends most of its running time avoiding its own plot, "The Apparition" is one of those major studio releases t... Read More

Finding Nemo Blu-ray Review
Finding Nemo   Finding Nemo Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  12/03/2012 10:05 AM EDT
Cars is typically labeled Pixar's most divisive film, but it's actually Finding Nemo that draws the widest and most passionate range of responses. Still, the years have indeed been kinder to the film's surprisingly viable animation than its beached-whale script and, beloved or no, Finding Nemo isn't the ultimate Pixar experience it ...

Up Blu-ray Review
Up 3D   Up Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  12/03/2012 9:52 AM EDT
The long list of PIXAR films being released in 3D now includes Oscar winner UP a family favorite that touches the heart and tickles the funny bone.  Released in a 5-Disc box set, the package includes a Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Discs (2), DVD and Digital Copy just in time for Holiday giving.  If you already have a 3D set-up or have interest in ...

The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray Review
The Dark Knight Rises   The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray Review
(Paul Kates)  11/26/2012 8:38 PM EDT
This year may well go down as the year of the comic book hero in movie history; there has been a whole host of them. Still, it was no surprise that, among them, one of the most hotly anticipated comic book hero movies of the year was The Dark Knight Rises (TDKR), the last in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. Beginning in 2005 with&n... Read More

The Watch Blu-ray Review
The Watch   The Watch Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  11/25/2012 7:07 PM EDT
Costco seems like it would make a decent place to ride out the zombie apocalypse. You've got a near-endless supply of pallets loaded with bulk food, enough toilet paper to TP Trump Tower, and sliding metal gates to keep out the undead hordes. But who would have imagined that a Costco in suburban Ohio would be ground zero for an alien invasion o... Read More

Hitchcock Theatrical Review
Hitchcock   Hitchcock Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  11/25/2012 6:41 PM EDT
"Hitchcock" arrives in theaters just a month after the airing of HBO's "The Girl," an unflattering portrait of Alfred Hitchcock's troubled dealings with star Tippi Hedren during production on "The Birds" and "Marnie." While it similarly references the helmer's attempts to manipulate the blonde lea... Read More

Dragons: Riders of Berk DVD Review
Dragons: Riders of Berk   Dragons: Riders of Berk DVD Review
(John Delia)  11/23/2012 9:58 AM EDT
If you liked the theatrical movie How to Train Your Dragon and your children have not yet caught on to the Cable TV series Dragons: Riders of Berk on Cartoon Network, then this DVD should have your family in animated Dragon heaven.  The weekly cartoon has all the excellent animation featured in the movie that created this spin-off.  ...

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure Blu-ray Review
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure   Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  11/20/2012 5:09 PM EDT
An instant classic back in the day, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure comes to Blu-ray for the first time.  The witty little film starring a young Keanu Reeves has marked his career as an odd ball high school kid who plays a mean air guitar. Today, the movie still has a following from curiosity seekers and rightly so.  After all, you d... Read More

Red Dawn Theatrical Review
Red Dawn   Red Dawn Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  11/20/2012 8:12 AM EDT
The strong emerging cast combined with a compelling story makes Red Dawn a strapping box-office contender in the crowed film arena. Aimed at teen to twenties mixed viewers, the movie should attract a solid following for the long haul.  Although a remake, this recreation of the 1984 hit with the same title has all the action elements that shoul...

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Theatrical Review
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2   The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  11/15/2012 1:56 PM EDT
No matter what I say about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, the fanatical female fans of The Twilight Saga will head to the theaters in droves.  A flick for the chicks, the men may as well stay at home from this mushy romance that thinks it's a fantasy yet panders to lust and a family affair.  A far cry from Breaking Dawn Part...
