DC's Legends of Tomorrow Blu-ray Review
DC's Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Second Season   DC's Legends of Tomorrow Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  08/15/2017 3:25 PM EDT
When I was little, Warner Bros. to me was Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the Road Runner. Saturday morning cartoons were funny, comical, and maybe even a bit serious. I can still remember the cartoons ending with Bugs bursting out saying, "That's all folks" while the caption underneath read "Warner Bros. Cartoon". When Season One o... Read More

(Jennifer Broderick)  08/14/2017 4:55 PM EDT
Diary of a Wimpy Kid:  The Long Haul is the most recent movie in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise, based off of the series by author, writer, and producer, Jeff Kinney. Cute and entertaining for the kids when you need to occupy them, this is a lighthearted and family friendly comedy that –while over exaggerating a teen's... Read More

Camelot - the age of innocence, love, and peace.  Camelot- an age that whirls in the fantasy of a King that will bring prosperity and peace in a land fraught with battle scars.  Camelot- one that will begin with a man pulling a sword from a stone- Excaliber.    We've all grown up on Camelot – our parents with JFK&...

Blindspot Blu-ray Review
Blindspot: The Complete Second Season   Blindspot Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  08/08/2017 8:38 AM EDT
Suspenseful dramas that captivate the audience week upon week and keep them engaged are a rare find, and if you watch Warner Bros. Blindspot you will know that there are not many shows made like this one.  Created by Martin Gero and produced by Greg Berlanti, who has worked on Everwood as well as the DC's Arrowverse, no won...

Buster's Mal Heart Blu-ray Review

(Jennifer Broderick)  07/17/2017 4:45 PM EDT
Well Go USA releases psycho-thriller Buster's Mal Heart this coming week and Sarah Adina Smith (GoodBye World) both directed and wrote the film.  Rami Malek (Mr. Robot; Twilight:  Breaking Dawn Part 2) and D.J. Qualls (Z Nation) star in the movie and the title surprises me because it seems to be a play on words- Mal meaning bad in Spanish... Read More

Free Fire Blu-ray Review
Free Fire   Free Fire Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  07/17/2017 4:27 PM EDT
Lionsgate has a history of making captivating films and Free Fire is no different.  With Executive Producer, Martin Scorsese one may expect The Godfather, but it isn't.  However, with a different genre of a shootout film, Scorsese and the other producers who worked on this film, make it work.  Clearly, the Scorsese influence is felt,...

Bambi Blu-ray Review
Bambi   Bambi Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  06/06/2017 8:47 AM EDT
Disney has a habit of re-releasing classic movies from videotape to DVD to Blu-ray as they find a way to re-digitalize and/or improve the colors and animation.  Bambi's Anniversary Edition is the latest in a long line of classic movies chosen by Disney to be added to its Signature Collection. It's great to see these older films back in... Read More

The Young Pope Blu-ray Review

(Jennifer Broderick)  06/05/2017 4:42 PM EDT
If you enjoy Dan Brown's books, Tom Hanks in his movies, or any intrigue and conspiracy theories about the Church, Vatican, and the Pope, then HBO's The Young Pope is the show to watch.  This new show doesn't have the action scenes that Games of Thrones has or the suspense factor of Westworld, but it has a young pope w...

Ex Machina 4K Ultra HD Review
Ex Machina   Ex Machina 4K Ultra HD Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  06/05/2017 2:22 PM EDT
On the heels of a prior blockbuster movie from 2013, Lionsgate releases Ex Machina (2015), taking us into the world of A.I. like we have never seen or even imagined before.  Visual effects galore even impressed the Academy so much that they awarded Ex Machina the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.  Ex Machina&...

Snitch 4K Ultra HD Review
Snitch   Snitch 4K Ultra HD Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  06/05/2017 9:00 AM EDT
Lionsgate is "the girl on fire" to use a quote from one of their most successful franchises (The Hunger Games).   Since their start in 1997, Lionsgate productions claims 30 Academy Awards and 122 Academy Award Nominations.   They release over 40 releases annually between Lionsgate and Summit labels and their other six ...
