The historical drama One Night with the King that follows the Biblical Esther, Queen of Persia has come to Blu-ray for the first time.  The film features an extremely emotional story with widescreen vistas that lend to the enchantment.  With a huge recognizable cast, visual effects wizard and director Michael O. Sajbel it contains every p... Read More

Schindler's List Blu-ray Review
Schindler's List   Schindler's List Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  3/11/2013 4:09 PM EDT
One of the most important films of the century, Schindler's List has been released on Blu-ray in a 20th anniversary box set. This masterpiece of filming takes you into the heart of the tragedy of the Polish Holocaust from the masterminded takeover of a country not equipped to resist to the camps, extermination showers and a smidgeon of hope tha...

Emperor Theatrical Review
Emperor   Emperor Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/7/2013 3:46 PM EDT
Opening this weekend Emperor brings a film based on a true event that brought closure to the war in the Pacific during WWII.  Questionable writing, direction and acting, the historical drama threads a romantic tale inside this biopic that tends to distract rather than add to the historical meetings between General McArthur and the Emperor of J...

Oz: The Great and Powerful Theatrical Review
Oz: The Great and Powerful   Oz: The Great and Powerful Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/7/2013 3:42 PM EDT
The bold, dazzling and dramatic Oz the Great and Powerful opens this weekend with immense possibilities of being the top gainer so far this year. Nearly critic proof, the film should bask in great returns at the box office. However, although the film is a masterpiece of cinematography and CGI, the acting and direction never really reaches an accept... Read More

You don't have to be a surfer to enjoy the true story Chasing Mavericks, a bio drama that's filled with inspiration and determination.  Now on Blu-ray the movie has a fine cast and crew with a script that takes you deep into the life of a real surfer and his willpower to catch the biggest and most dangerous waves.  If you like dramas that...

Lay The Favorite Blu-ray Review
Lay The Favorite   Lay The Favorite Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  3/5/2013 9:55 AM EDT
Kind of madcap with good measure of fun production Lay the Favorite is now available on Blu-ray.  Direction by Oscar nominated Stephen Frears makes the easy going gambling plot movie a winner with a lot of twists and attention-grabbing situations. Perfect for home viewing so you can control the play with a lot of reason to rewind the action fo... Read More

Easter Parade Blu-ray Review
Easter Parade   Easter Parade Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  3/4/2013 11:11 AM EDT
For the first time on Blu-ray the romantic musical Easter Parade dances onto the small screen. Transferred to Blu-ray using 1080p high definition, the movie makes a better presentation than its DVD predecessor.  Originally released in 1948, this musical featuring the dancing of Fred Astaire and Judy Garland kicks up a great show. The stor...

Jack the Giant Slayer Theatrical Review
Jack the Giant Slayer   Jack the Giant Slayer Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  2/27/2013 4:34 PM EDT
Taking special effects and sound to a new level for a 3D film, Jack the Giant Slayer entertains with adventure and excitement.  The audience for the film in my estimation targets preteen to 20's male population.  That said, the movie is critic proof with its giant size marketing budget and will certainly make a huge profit in the box-off ...

The Insider Blu-ray Review

Snitch Theatrical Review
Snitch   Snitch Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  2/21/2013 4:14 PM EDT
Actor Dwayne Johnson gives a powerful performance in the action drama Snitch opening in theaters this weekend.  The film, Based on true accounts, takes you on a suspense filled ride under the fine direction of famous stuntman Ric Roman Waugh.  Although the film does provide insight about how the justice system works, the hard knocks story...
