The western is a staple of the movie history going back all the way to the first days of cinema. There have been many tales told through the setting of the western, some true, some fictional and while they have all been different takes on that period of American history, they tend to ignore the obvious fact of that time, many of the so-called cowbo...

While it has been highly entertaining to watch many of our favorite comic heroes come to life on the big screen these past few years, it is with animation that these characters will always have their truest life. There have been many successful adaptions of characters and mini-series over the years; Batman, Superman, Justice League, Teen Titans, Th... Read More

"His whole life a million-to-one shot". That was the original tagline for the 1976 film Rocky starring Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa, a Philadelphia native who took part in boxing matches bot very often and wound up going 15 rounds with the Heavy Weight Champion.   This is the story of the ultimate underdog. The story of Rocky i... Read More

Nothing comes without a price and that's the moral behind the German horror film We Are the Night. Karoline Herfurth stars in this film about a trio of female vampires who are living out the ultimate night life in the clubs of Berlin.   Lena (Herfurth) is a 20-year-old Berlin native who is getting by as a petty thief. Her home life isn'... Read More

Platoon Blu-ray Review
Platoon   Platoon Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  5/25/2011 7:51 PM EDT
No one movie can capture the horror of war but there are some that have come close and Platoon is one of them. Directed by Oliver Stone, a Vietnam vet himself, the movie portrays the harsh realities of combat through the eyes of a young college dropout.   Charlie Sheen stars as Chris Taylor a young naïve college student who quits school a...

Every horror movie that comes along boasts that this film will be the scariest movie you have ever seen; sometimes even making comparisons to classic films like The Exorcist, American Werewolf in London, or The Ring. A lot of the time though these films turn out to be unable to follow through on their claims and you end up leaving the theater disap... Read More

The Usual Suspects Blu-ray Review
The Usual Suspects Digibook   The Usual Suspects Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  5/19/2011 11:14 AM EDT
Sometimes a movie comes along that completely shakes our world to the very core. It is a rare thing to experience this and when it does happen it is not easily accomplished a second time. When The Usual Suspects came to theaters no one had any idea what to expect from it. Outwardly it looked like a simple crime caper but beneath that surface there ... Read More
