Wrath of the Titans Blu-ray Review

Louis Leterrier's Clash of the Titans arrived to negative reviews, divided audiences, and set off a much discussed 3D. Warner cleaned house for the sequel. New director, new screenwriters, new beasties, and a leaner, meaner tale. But is this version/sequel any better? In some ways, yes -- the performances are certainly better, the dialogue shar...

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Theatrical Review

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter": Those four words, strung together in that order, sound like a lot of fun, don't they? It's a totally ridiculous premise, this notion that the 16th U.S. president lived a whole other secret life, prowling about at night, seeking out bloodsuckers. But it's a creative one, and it should have prov... Read More

Brave Theatrical Review

The latest feature from cinema Juggernaut Pixar is  Brave and while visually it is everything we've come to expect from that think-tank of geniuses it might disappoint many loyal fans. This marks the 13th animated feature from the world's most consistently successful film company and the first (for them)  set in that version ...

Project X Blu-ray Review
Project X   Project X Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  6/21/2012 9:09 AM EDT
Morally vapid. Those are the words that come to mind when analyzing this movie. Producer Todd Phillips and director Nima Nourizadeh's Project X is a wasteland; a vast empty desert prowled by self-destructive teenagers consuming anything and everything that will bring them to the brink of death.  Adults who find humor in underage drinking a...

With the element of surprise now a distant memory, the "Sherlock Holmes" franchise elects a threatening route of sleuthing to entice fans back into the realm of mystery. Although never grim, "A Game of Shadows" dials down the sometimes absurdity that defined the 2009 blockbuster, a quality that did an amazing job clearing away t... Read More

John Carter Blu-ray Review
John Carter 3D   John Carter Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  6/8/2012 8:57 PM EDT
With occasional exceptions, like Michael Keaton's Batman, we want and expect our superheroes to be classically handsome. But the interplanetary sci-fi bash John Carter proves it's possible for a superhero to be incredibly good-looking…in the wrong way. Taylor Kitsch, who stars as the space warrior created a hundred years ago by Edgar... Read More

Act of Valor Blu-ray Review
Act of Valor   Act of Valor Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  6/8/2012 7:41 PM EDT
It isn't enough to call the men of SEAL Team 7 heroes; that's easy to see. They are much more complicated than cardboard cutout supermen. Act of Valor is a good ol' fashioned war movie, in the vein of those old WWII movies where the good guys kill the bad guys, they wave the flag, and thank God unabashedly. These are men who willingly p... Read More

Lethal Weapon Blu-ray Review
Lethal Weapon Collection   Lethal Weapon Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  6/7/2012 8:40 AM EDT
Back in the 1980's, the buddy cop comedy was a foreign concept. Up to that point, most of the movies have revolved around a teenager who got to witness his parents adolescent, a child who discovered an alien in his backyard and a man that has a close encounter. But when Lethal Weapon came along, the genre changed. Now having two adults placed i... Read More

Hell on Wheels Blu-ray Review
Hell On Wheels - The Complete First Season   Hell on Wheels Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  6/6/2012 7:52 AM EDT
The clickety clack of train travel may tend to put some travelers in a hypnotic state, a state probably better suited for meditation than wondering about how this giant rail project was ever built in the first place. Hell on Wheels is just that story, a rollicking if sometimes fairly disturbing account mixing fictional and real historical character... Read More

The Princess Diaries Blu-ray Review
The Princess Diaries: 10th Anniversary Collection   The Princess Diaries Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  6/4/2012 9:11 PM EDT
It's every little girl's fantasy, and even the big dream of grown-up girls who might not be the most popular, the wealthiest, or the prettiest in school, at work, or around town, to one day be whisked away into a fairy tale-come-to-life, to live a real-life rags-to-riches impossible dream sort of story, to escape all the ills of one life an...
