American Horror Story: Asylum – The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)

American Horror Story: Asylum is the second season of the wildly thrilling FX horror television series American Horror Story.  The interesting thing about this show is that it’s billed as an anthology.  That means none of the events we discussed here in the first season have any relevance at all here.  Odd huh?  I love […]

They Slay ‘Giants’, Don’t They? (Movie Review)

‘Snow White’ Goes Dark

Given the visual wonderment seen throughout this darker take on the Snow White fairy tale, it is too bad there is not more to praise in other regards.  Snow White and the Huntsman is a fairly empty film that has plenty to show off on the outside, given the high budget and imaginations at work […]

Captain Jack is Back in Another Swashbuckling Adventure!

Johnny Depp is back as my favorite pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow, in the fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.  I know a lot of people would rather that they stopped making more sequels after the third movie, but why?  Everyone old and young loves the Pirates movies.  And even though the […]
