A History of Violence Blu-ray Review

Introduction: "A History Of Violence" from director David Cronenberg begins not far from where it ends. A disjointed yet unique take on a crime drama, the film is a worthy effort, yet fails to tie its many story lines into a cohesive whole. From the outset the tone is decidedly dark with murder being second nature and seemingly a part of ... Read More

Editor's Note:Non-format-specific portions of this review also appear in our DVD review of Chuck: The Complete First Season."Chuck" is a smart comedy.  In essence, a parody of the spy genre, "Chuck" knows not to take itself too seriously while at the same time delivering serious action, drama, intrigue; and at the end of th...

"Chuck" is a smart comedy.  In essence, a parody of the spy genre, "Chuck" knows not to take itself too seriously while at the same time delivering serious action, drama, intrigue; and at the end of the day, one satisfying hour of television!  A hero of the every nerd, Chuck is the regular guy next door who knows how t...

As if you didn't already know, The much-hyped sequel to the critically acclaimed reboot of the Batman franchise was released in theaters yesterday to record box office numbers (18.5 million in midnight screenings alone). While the film is entertaining and probably a better use of your money than 2 gallons of gasoli...

Cloverfield. Got your attention already, eh?  Ok we have a kick ass trailer, a big mystery about "the monster", months and month of speculation and viral marketing (slusho.com?). The web hype machine hit feverish paces over this one, and while not as big a disappointment as "Snakes On A Plane", Cloverfield simply fails to l... Read More

Spider-man 3 Theatrical Review

(Eric English)  11/4/2007 10:16 PM EDT
A big budget, blockbuster Spiderman film should be executed as flawlessly as a spider winds her web. Each piece carefully planned, executed perfectly, and ultimatly neccesary to the beauty and efficiency of the completed structure. Unfortunately, in Spiderman 3, director Sam Raimi fails to establish any sort o... Read More

"Sometimes there's a man, sometimes there's a dude..." So begins 1998's Coen brothers cult classic "The Big Lebowski", and for those of you playing along at home, you've already done two shots. You see, the legendary status of this comic gem on college campuses has lead to the creation of the "Big Lebowski drinking game&quo... Read More

After winning the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in Monster's Ball, Halle Berry's took a very dark and disappointing turn. Perhaps the single most critically panned film in the years the followed was the ill-fated "Catwoman" in which the only watch able thing was Berry in her cat suit.Another, less well known, dark entry into ...

Warning: This Review Contains Spoilers.Of all the powers of all the mutants in the X-men series, perhaps the most powerful of all would be the ability to make Kelsey Grammer look cool as Beast. It turns out the film makers don't have that power, but they do a decent of job of wrapping up the X-men trilogy in the action-packed X-Men 3: The Last Stan... Read More

Wedding Crashers Theatrical Review

(Eric English)  9/19/2006 1:36 PM EDT
The Rules of crashing a wedding go something like this: Rule #2: "Never use your real name."   Rule #28: "Make sure there's an open bar". Rule #8: "Be the life of the party." Rule #13: "Bridesmaids are desperate: console them."In 2005's hit comedy "Wedding Crashers" Vince Vaughn and O... Read More
