Wonder Woman – Commemorative Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Its hard to believe this DC Comics animated film is turning eight years old in 2017. When it was released, it was but the fourth of these edgier cartoons with PG-13 ratings featuring the DC super heroes. Now they are somewhere around thirty with more to come. These come at a pace where they can […]

X-Men: First Class (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I have to admit, even with the ridiculous latest entry in the family, X-Men: Apocalypse, I’m ecstatic to be tackling X-Men: First Class here.  Ask me why.  I dare you!  Well, since you asked, I suppose the only nice thing to do would be to divulge.  I’m “ultra” excited for this one simply because ever since they […]

Working Girl (Blu-ray Review)

Truth be told, I had never seen Working Girl before.  However, one look at the Blu-ray’s cover is all it took for me to get that warm and fuzzy feeling that I was about to watch something special simply because of the very young now everyday household names on it.  And after coming off an Alien binge […]

Lake Placid – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray)

I’ll be the first to admit, when Scream Factory announced they were doing Lake Placid, I was kinda like “Hmm”.  For one, it was a newer film (weird to call a 15 year old film that), but as we’ve seen they are starting to explore late 90s and early 2000s films.  I remember watching it […]

LAKE PLACID Collector’s Edition Lands On Blu-ray July 8th!

Scream Factory will be bringing the Betty White classic LAKE PLACID to Blu-ray on July 8th.  Its going to feature a new making of featurette with plenty of returning cast and crew to look back at the film.   Now, I admittedly wasn’t a big fan of this movie back in 1999.  However, I’m more […]

‘Chef’ Is Deliciously Entertaining (Movie Review)

It does not take a whole lot for a film to win me over if it has a lot of charm. Get the right cast and allow them to have fun that is evident in the film and I will be happy to sit back and enjoy what has been put in front of me. […]

Bored to Death: The Complete Third Season (Blu-ray Review)

Jonathan Ames (Jason Schwartzman) continues to ply his trade as an unlicensed private detective, getting caught up in increasingly risky jobs and absurd adventures around New York City with George (Ted Danson) and Ray (Zach Galifianakis), his always supportive partners in solving crime. In addition, a shocking revelation drives him to embark on one of […]

X-Men: First Class (Blu-ray Review)

X-Men: First Class is the official first chapter in the X-Men film universe.  One could even say that the film is a reboot of sorts, but that may or may not be stretching it a bit.  A very cool cast has been assembled to take on the roles of earlier character versions in this latest […]

Benny & Joon (Blu-ray Review)

You gotta love the early 90’s when it comes to films and filmmaking.  The fashion sense was still transitioning from the 80’s, so there was that learning curve that we all had to get through.  Johnny Depp was nowhere near a superstar back then, but was still seen as one of the few recognizable actors […]

Love & Other Drugs (Blu-ray Review)

I’m not sure who I heard it from, but I heard some negative things about Love & Other Drugs. I had heard it was a cookie cutter chick flick where someone was sick and probably spent the movie dying.  This couldn’t have been further from the truth.  Love & Other Drugs may be a chick flick, but […]

2012’s Apocalyptic Mayhem Explodes on Blu-ray!

It’s the end of the world as we know it on the Blu-ray format when 2012 hits your big screen this March.  Sony Pictures has issued a March 2nd D-date for the Mayan apocalyptic disaster film 2012.  In case you need a quick refresher on what the film was all about, if it wasn’t already […]

2012: The Year We Lost Contact

I honestly had no intentions of ever seeing the latest disaster flick, Roland Emmerich’s 2012, on the big screen.  Had it not been for the recommendation to do so from fellow reviewer Bob Ignizio, then I probably would not have.  I actually remember telling my co-worker Sandy this past Friday that there’s no way I […]

2012: Disasterpiece Theater

2012 is completely ridiculous trash that turns massive destruction and the deaths of billions of people (including, by implication, just about everyone watching it) into fodder for entertainment.   Of course the disaster movies of the seventies did the same thing on a smaller scale, and who can resist The Towering Inferno or Earthquake?
