Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps Theatrical Review

Back in the 1980's Oliver Stone made a movie called Wall Street which was a social commentary of the way American business operated during that generation. The character of Richard Gekko (Michael Douglas) was a personification of that time and culture. His speech about greed being good perfectly encapsulated the thought process of that decade. Now ...

Legend of the Guardians is based on a book series of the same name. It is about a young owl named Soren who dreams of one day becoming a guardian of Ga'Hoole and fighting noble battles. Naturally these books were adapted into a movie. Directed by Zack Snyder of 300 fame, the trailers for the movie came off a bit difficult to translate if you weren'... Read More

A few years ago we saw the first of many M. Night Shyamalan movies, The Sixth Sense. That movie came out of left field and astounded audiences with the deep well of emotion from all the characters and also the final surprise ending. As time passed more movies from him cropped up and it seems as though he has become a one trick pony. His most recent... Read More

The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Third Season   The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  9/20/2010 11:26 AM EDT
Big Bang Theory could easily be a simple uninteresting show about four very smart but "nerdy" guys who lives in the same apartment building as a very attractive waitress. Initially that was what the show was about; the main character of Leonard (Johnny Galecki) had a large crush on the new girl next door, Penny (Kaley Cuoco). Most of the ... Read More

It's fairly typical of Hollywood that once a certain genre of movie catches on we will begin to see similar types being pumped out over the next few years. At the moment we have the "assassin trained in every way possible" character. One of the first movies to really deliver in this area was The Bourne Identity in which a would-be killer ... Read More

Once again we have another movie based off a video game. This time around it is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The difference with this movie and most others that are based off of video games is that this time around Disney is producing it so we can expect a nice big budget.The movie opens with our young hero who is living on the streets and ...

Supernatural Blu-ray Review
Supernatural Season Five   Supernatural Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  9/12/2010 1:12 PM EDT
Supernatural is a show that has grown into its own little juggernaut of popularity and mythology. Fans of it are devout to say the least. Conventions devoted solely to the show have started cropping up, books based on the show and even fan fiction appear on the Internet. Perhaps it is because of the rapid loyalty of comic book fans, or perhaps it's... Read More

There have been a lot of movies based off of video games. It is as common today as the comic book movie. Quite frankly though, most of these movies have never been very good. They almost always come off even more cartoonish and cliché than the games they are based on.Resident Evil is a game that has been around for many years, going back to ... Read More

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day Blu-ray Review
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day   The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  9/7/2010 9:37 PM EDT
"Let's do some gratuitous violence". That's the motto that sums up what you can expect from The Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day. The original was a surprise hit not in theaters but on DVD in college dorm rooms. It's love of not only movies but also men who stand up and dish out justice as they see fit instantly caught on and over the ye... Read More

Smallville Blu-ray Review
Smallville: The Complete Ninth Season   Smallville Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  9/3/2010 1:07 PM EDT
Superman. The name is as well known as apple pie. Even if you know nothing about who he is or where he got his start, you at least know his name. It's surprising that a fictional character could have such a broad audience. Especially considering he started out (and still is) a comic book. Comic books, as popular as they have become over the recent ... Read More
