The X-Files Miniseries   The X-Files Miniseries Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  6/27/2016 12:16 PM EDT
It has been over 23 years since the original X-Files debuted on Fox Television, laying the groundwork for most of the modern television that we still watch today.

Shrek Blu-ray Review
Shrek Anniversary Edition   Shrek Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  6/26/2016 5:49 PM EDT
He's big, green, ugly and lives in a swamp.  In 2001, we fell in love with him so much that we ended up with three sequels and a Broadway musical.  He is forever engrained in a generation's mind, and now Dreamworks has decided to release the movie that started it all on Blu-ray as the anniversary edition of&n...

What if all those cult religions that believe aliens are coming to save them were right?  What if there was something else out there?  What if some of them lived amongst us and we never even knew it?  Midnight Special explores this idea, along with the thought that a little boy can be more than he seems and the government knows more ...

The Other Side of the Door Blu-ray Review
The Other Side of the Door   The Other Side of the Door Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  6/21/2016 10:50 AM EDT
The horror genre has evolved from what it was back in the 1970s and '80s, with icon films like Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street. I'm not sure that evolution is for the better, because even though graphics and special effects have advanced, the plots, scares, and goriness haven't necessarily improved....

The Martian Blu-ray Review
The Martian: Extended Edition   The Martian Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  6/15/2016 9:51 AM EDT
Director Ridley Scott (Alien) is notorious for lengthy feature films.   His movies tend to run over two hours and, originally, his latest feature, The Martian, was closer to three.  The theatrical version was edited down to two hours and twenty four minutes and some felt even that was too long.  Now Twentieth Century Fox Home En...

London Has Fallen Blu-ray Review
London Has Fallen   London Has Fallen Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  6/13/2016 10:40 PM EDT
In 2013, two films came out within six months of each other about the United States White House being taken over by terrorists and the President taken hostage. One film succeeded; one didn't.

The Complete First Season   Ballers Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  6/13/2016 10:24 PM EDT
So many times when you see a movie or television show about Major League sports, there is a common theme running throughout...Babes, Booze and Bling.  HBO's hit series, Ballers, has plenty of all three, plus something extra thrown in.Spencer Strasmore (Dwayne Johnson; Furious 7) was a world class football play...

Roots Blu-ray Review
Roots   Roots Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  6/7/2016 10:25 PM EDT
"My name is Kunta Kinte".  I had just turned six years old when Roots became a television event so, even though I had never seen it, I knew what that phrase meant.  For almost forty years it meant courage, spirit and hope for an entire race of people.  And now, as the History Channel airs a retelling of Alex Haely's classic...
