Happy Feet 2 Blu-ray Review

(Eric English)  3/4/2012 9:31 PM EST
"Happy Feet Two" returns us to the frozen arctic on the heels of the Academy Award winning "Happy Feet" (2006). A worthy successor, the film itself is a delight for children and adults alike with several musical numbers, a positive message of working together, and good old fashioned family fun. With several package options to ch... Read More

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax Theatrical Review

(Eric English)  3/3/2012 6:00 PM EST
The Lorax marks the fourth story of the late great Dr. Seuss to be adapted into a film. Two of those films, The Cat in the Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas were made into live-action films, while the other, Horton Hears a Who was an animated feature. So far all of the adaptations done by Hollywood have failed in comparison to the original sto... Read More

Immortals Theatrical Review
Immortals   Immortals Theatrical Review
(Eric English)  11/11/2011 10:40 PM EST
For the new film Immortals directed by Tarsem Singh, looks are everything. A movie can have a lousy screenplay and uninteresting characters, but as long as the costumes are immaculate and the production design superb, then little else matters. Immortals attempts at having as much machismo as 300 but comes up quite short and has about as much mythol... Read More

Colorful, fun, and entertaining are the some of the (tamer) first words that come to mind when thinking about Rio De Janeiro Brazil. "Rio", from the creators of Ice Age, is a story about a Blue McCaw from Minnesota whose adventures lead him to Brazil for a , you guessed it, colorful, fun, and entertaining romp the whole family will enjoy!...

Imagine, if you will, that you just woke up in a hospital with no recollection of how you ended up there?  Furthermore, you are not in your native country, your wife doesn't recognize you, and no one believes you are you.  This is the scenario that Dr. Martin Harris (Liam Neeson from Taken, and Batman Begins) is presented with in the ...

The Ed Helms vehicle "Cedar Rapids" makes its way to your big screen with the Blu-Ray release of the "Super Awesome Edition." One may be asking themselves Ed who? You know him from The Office and as the strait shooter Stu from The Hangover 1 and 2. Helms essentially reprises his role from The Hangover here as the conservative na... Read More

Hall Pass Blu-ray Review
Hall Pass   Hall Pass Blu-ray Review
(Eric English)  6/13/2011 10:23 AM EST
The idea of marriage is always a funny topic to discuss especially through the medium of film. That is the subject behind Hall Pass, the latest film from the directing team of the Farrelly brothers. The movie follows the exploits of Rick and Fred, played by Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis, who are two friends that receive "hall passes" fro... Read More

(Eric English)  6/4/2011 11:58 AM EST
The X-Men films were among the first of the comic book film adaptations that introduced the average person to the world of the comic book. The first, which was directed by Bran Singer, was a critical and box office success especially considering it was essentially one long introduction to the all of the main characters and events. Not long after th... Read More

Gulliver's Travels   Gulliver's Travels Blu-ray Review
(Eric English)  4/29/2011 9:29 AM EST
December 2010's Gulliver's Travels starring Jack Black (School Of Rock) comes to Blu-ray and DVD this April based loosely on the classic novel by Jonathan Swift, the film takes many liberties with its source material, and really the two are intended for completely different audiences.  Though certainly a a family film, and one that you'll ...
