The League: The Final Season (DVD Review)

League_DVD_3DPackshot_S7_1R1To be a fan of The League, you don’t need to know much about fantasy football, or sports at all. You just need to have friends that you hate. The ensemble comedy follows a group of old friends in a fantasy football league who care very deeply… about beating each other for bragging rights. The League was created by the husband-and-wife team of Jeff Schaffer (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld) and Jackie Marcus Schaffer (Disturbia, Eurotrip) who serve as executive producers and directors. The series lasted for seven seasons on FX (and eventually FXX) and this DVD set features its final hours.

Archer: The Complete Season Six (DVD Review)

Archer_S6_DVD_eAfter a season that garnered some mixed reaction from fans (Archer: Vice), the animated comedy-spy series is back to all their regular antics. Six seasons in, Archer remains as irreverent as ever, with all kinds of cleverness to go along with the adult-oriented nature of this series. Now, with the seventh season fast approaching, it is time to look at this DVD release, containing every season six episode and more.

We Are Your Friends (DVD Review)

We_Are_Your_FriendsWith the proliferation and international appeal of electronic music it is hard to explain why such a fresh and ripe new movement hasn’t garnished more attention from the film industry. The first feature film directed by Max Joseph(Catfish: The TV Show), We Are Your Friends attempts to shine the cinematic light on this relatively new and emerging genre of music. Following the story of a young up-and-coming DJ, Cole Carter(Zac Efron), We Are Your Friends brings the audience into the club, and the heart of club music. Quickly taken under the wing of veteran DJ James Reed(Wes Bentley), Cole begins to find his own style and works his way into the main stream circuit. Utilizing a wonderful soundtrack, a few scenes of drug-induced surrealism, a great performance from Wes Bentley, and the age old tale of self-discovery We Are Your Friends sounds like a great way to spend a Friday night, but somehow fails to find its beat.

The Image Revolution (DVD Review)

Image-RevolutionIn 1992, Marvel Comics was the #1 publisher of comic books in the world, largely due to its dynamic artwork. At the height of this popularity, in response to what they believed to be years of mistreatment toward creative talent, a small – but influential – group of artists left Marvel Comics to form their own company, Image Comics. Led by the outspoken Todd McFarlane (Spawn), this group kicked off a revolution that not only changed the comic industry forever, but has had an indelible influence on mainstream pop culture that continues to this day.  But with great power came great turmoil, as Rob Liefeld (Deadpool), Jim Lee (X-Men), Marc Silvestri (Wolverine), Erik Larsen (Savage Dragon), Whilce Portacio (X-Factor) and Jim Valentino (Guardians Of The Galaxy) almost immediately began to unravel the very bond that united them.  Continue reading ‘The Image Revolution (DVD Review)’

Little Loopers (DVD Review)

Little LoopersLittle Loopers is a young teen-focused film that is not so entertaining for older crowds. Full of fart jokes and other juvenile jokes, it is kind of hard to watch for this viewer.

Hidden (DVD Review)

Hidden (DVD Review)A family has been hiding in an underground bunker for almost year as they live in constant fear of a dangerous entity that lives on the surface.  The story takes place in the small town of Kingsville.  Though they never really tell you which State it is, Alexander Skarsgard does try to effect a bit of a southern accent that sounds somewhat Virginian.  This is the kinda movie that relies pretty heavily on the big reveal of it’s titular villain.  And being that this is such a small film, there isn’t too much that I can say without spoiling it.  This is probably one of the smallest Sci-fi films I’ve ever seen.  And by small I mean most of the movie takes place underground in a space the size of two living rooms pushed together!

Every Secret Thing (DVD Review)
