Rock of Ages Blu-ray Review
Rock of Ages   Rock of Ages Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/8/2012 8:34 AM EDT
Using the blockbuster success of "Mamma Mia!" as inspiration, the Broadway musical "Rock of Ages" gallops to the big screen in all of its neon-drenched glory. Merging the power of hair metal from the late-1980s with campy performances intended to reach all the way to the back row, the feature is nothing short of a party, with gl... Read More

Jeepers Creepers Blu-ray Review
Jeepers Creepers   Jeepers Creepers Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  9/28/2012 8:46 AM EDT
With Clive Barker's last few films falling on deaf ears and empty seats, writer/director Victor Salva ("Rite of Passage," "Powder," Clownhouse") stepped up to attempt to fill the gap. "Jeepers Creepers" (2001) has much the same dark, foreboding tone that Barker's films possess and much the same degree of s... Read More

Hostel Blu-ray Review
Hostel & Hostel II Double Feature   Hostel Blu-ray Review

There are many film critics who have written about the uneven popularity of horror films. Horror films will be popular for a few years, drop off in business, and then see a resurgence. It's also fairly easy to track the trends within horror films. There is a current notion of bringing back the brutal and no-nonsense films of the 70s and we'... Read More

Dredd Theatrical Review
Dredd   Dredd Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  9/19/2012 8:05 AM EDT
Back in the 90's a movie was made called Judge Dredd. Based off the UK comic of the same name, it starred Sylvester Stallone as the title character. But that is not what we're going to discuss here. What we will review is the much better adaptation that hits theaters September 21. It stars Karl Urban, Lena Headey, and Olivia Thirlby. Simply... Read More

Snow White and the Huntsman Blu-ray Review
Snow White and the Huntsman   Snow White and the Huntsman Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  9/11/2012 7:14 PM EDT
Snow White and the Huntsman, the latest re-imagined fairy tale out of Hollywood, has enough problems without dragging an actress' lapse in judgment and a first-time feature filmmaker's infidelity into the arena. Gorgeous and evocative as its visuals may be, Rupert Sanders' dark fairy tale is a sumptuous but fundamentally flawed fantasy ... Read More

The Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of The Ring Blu-ray Review
The Lord of the Rings Extended Edition 5-Disc Set   The Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of The Ring Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  9/5/2012 8:41 AM EDT
You would be hard pressed to find someone who hasn't heard of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The movies themselves set a new standard for film making and went on to become international successes, even increasing tourism in New Zealand where the film was shot. The third film went on to sweep the Oscars, taking home 11 altogether. The books, wri... Read More

The Terminator Blu-ray Review
Terminator Anthology   The Terminator Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  8/31/2012 2:45 PM EDT
Suspenseful, thrilling, and visionary, James Cameron's (Avatar) 1984 sci-fi classic The Terminator spawned a host of sequels and even a short-lived television series a few years ago. While the revolutionary special effects may not seem as stunning as they once did in today's CGI world, the film's influence is still being felt in every s... Read More

The Aristocats Blu-ray Review
The Aristocats   The Aristocats Blu-ray Review

Disney has long been one of the more conservative studios when it comes to releasing catalog titles on Blu-ray, especially its classic (and even its not-so-classic) animated films. The reasons are many -- some noble, others shrewd -- but chief among them is the sheer amount of time and level of care the studio invests in the restoration and remaste... Read More

Freelancers Blu-ray Review
Freelancers   Freelancers Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  8/26/2012 1:51 PM EDT
Apparently it's true what is said of actors. Some films they choose out of an interest in the story and challenging themselves in new ways. While others are simply just a paycheck. This is clearly true for Robert De Niro because there is no logical reason for an performer of his caliber to be in a movie such as Freelancers. You almost with you ... Read More

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax Blu-ray Review
Dr. Seuss' The Lorax   Dr. Seuss' The Lorax Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  8/14/2012 10:41 AM EDT
Not to overstate things, but "The Lorax," Dr. Seuss' none too subtle illustrated children's book, remains a classic environmental cautionary tale ever penned for a young audience. The story itself is simple: a little boy visits a remorseful hermit called the Once-ler and learns how the creature's greed, carelessness and ambiti... Read More
