Since the 90s, gamers all around the world have fallen in love with the World of Warcraft. Its fan base has reached such fevered levels that there are conventions for the series and people have even been married in the game itself. For years, Warcraft's legion of loyal (some may say fanatical) fans have been clamoring for a theatrical vision of... Read More

It's starting to look a lot like fall. The air is getting cooler, the leaves will change color soon, kids are going back to school, and it is another year that Supernatural graces audiences with a Blu-ray combo pack full of last year's on-screen antics of the Winchester boys saving the world from another apocalypse.Last time we checked in w...

If you are a fan of Shane Black's work, then you know he tends to combine action with comedy in his films.  You need to look no further than the Lethal Weapon series to see his genius put on display in those four funny, and entertaining, films.  Black has once again intertwined the laughs with action, suspense and intrigue to create ...

For those who remember Sam Raimi's (Darkman) Evil Dead films of the 1980's and early '90's, Ash vs Evil Dead brings us back to the well loved character, Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell; Burn Notice).  We first saw Ash in the film The Evil Dead, followed by Evil Dead II and then Army of ... Read More

Back in 2013, director Ilya Naishuller made a short first person music video entitled Biting Elbows: Bad Motherf*cker. The kinetic energy surrounding the video and story caught the attention of film director and producer Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted).  With the help of Bekmambetov, as well as an IndieGoGo campaign,  the financing was in plac...

In my opinion, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the most underrated movies of the year so far.  It had everything an adult action film should have.  It was fast paced, full of explosions, had a real plot and great CGI.  I can't understand why it received such bad reviews when it ran in theaters, but I for on...

Anytime there is a popular book series these days, it is a given it will be made into feature films; and Veronica Roth's Divergent books are no exception.  Allegiant is the third film in the Divergent franchise, and it makes its way into stores on 4K Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD on July 12, 2016.In the film, we see Tris (Shailene Wo...

In today's day and age, war is a constant. We send our troops out to various countries around the world and have to ask ourselves if the damages are really worth it sometimes.  With the advanced technology that now exists in the military, some argue there are less casualties, but, in some cases, the opposite could be true. Gavin Hood's... Read More

It has been over 23 years since the original X-Files debuted on Fox Television, laying the groundwork for most of the modern television that we still watch today. The series centered on FBI agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and his partner Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) as they tried to prove the existence of a government conspiracy on the highest ...

In 2013, two films came out within six months of each other about the United States White House being taken over by terrorists and the President taken hostage. One film succeeded; one didn't. And, in the wake of box office success, a sequel was green lit for Olympus Has Fallen entitled London Has Fallen.Following in the footsteps of Olympus Has... Read More
