Writer/director Neill Blomkamp’s latest big screen project is a film that tackles the ideas of artificial intelligence and the big questions that come from creating a machine that thinks.  It is set in Johannesburg, a few years in the future, and finds the lead characters dealing with robots and their effectiveness in a world where […]

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 […]

‘Exodus’ Commands Visual Grandeur, But Is Plagued By A Lack Of Emotion (Movie Review)

Exodus: Gods and Kings is an epic.  There is no way around that.  Regardless of my thoughts on the film as a whole, director Ridley Scott has made a film that is grand in scale, fully realized in its depiction of an ancient time, and littered with extras, sets, props, and obvious visual effects in […]

Two Epic Films from Legendary Filmmaker Ridley Scott Arrive as Collector’s Edition Blu-rays This October

Two of Ridley Scott’s best films are coming to Blu-ray in all new collector’s editions.  One is more obvious and that is Alien, Scott’s landmark sci-fi/horror feature, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary.  The other is Kingdom of Heaven, celebrating its 10th anniversary as Scott’s most underrated feature (granted the Director’s cut version is where it’s at).

FINALLY Here Comes GHOSTBUSTERS II On Blu-ray Via The GHOSTBUSTERS Anniversary Blu-ray!

Come on, it was baffling that Ghostbusters II had yet to make it to Blu-ray.  Its seems strange it took til now to get a set of 1 & 2 on Blu-ray.  But, hit the 30 year anniversary of the original film and things like this can happen.  You may remember when I did my […]

Vamps (Blu-ray Review)

Goody (Alicia Silverstone) and Stacy (Krysten Ritter) are addicted to the night life, clubbing, hooking up and always looking for the next thrill, all the while keeping a big a secret-they happen to be modern-day vampires. But even with lifetimes of dating experience behind them, the duo realizes they still have a lot to learn about […]

‘Avatar’ Limited 3D Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Avatar is finally available for all of those who wanted to purchase a 3D version of the film.  James Cameron’s groundbreaking film has obviously had an effect on how people now view movies (for better or worse), given the onslaught of 3D releases, but now anyone with the proper capabilities will be able to experience […]

Rampart (Movie Review)

If you’re going to make a movie about cops, you’ve got a few templates to choose from:  you can do the “Rookie Story”, where you follow an up-and-comer through the ranks as he achieves his goal of becoming a decorated police officer;  you can go the “Grizzled Detective” route, and put an embittered, brilliant detective […]

Cedar Rapids: The Super Awesome Edition (Blu-ray Review)

I was happy to be able to revisit Cedar Rapids.  I thought it was a very charming comedy that was unfortunately only able to be seen in limited release, during its theatrical run.  Fortunately, the Blu-ray for this film is now available and many can now buy or rent this sweet-natured, raunchy comedy.  It helps […]

Take The Trip To ‘Cedar Rapids’ on Blu-ray

I missed this one in the theater, but the same mistake won’t happen when it arrives on Blu-ray this June.  Two of our reviewers really liked this one (see here and here) so I’m not going to let this one slip off my radar.  Anyway, of course I am talking about the salesman comedy of […]

Paul is Rude, Crude and Downright Lovable!

Continuing the recent streak of films I covered panels for at last year’s Comic-Con comes a science fiction comedy like none other from the brains behind Hot Fuzz.  Of course I’m talking about the aptly named film Paul.  And E.T. thought he was special for having a feature named after himself.  LOL.   What I […]

You Again (Blu-ray Review)

I must be a glutton for punishment.  Usually fellow staff reviewer Sean Ferguson reviews all the Disney related Blu-ray titles around here, but when I found out about this romantic comedy starring my favorite screen queen as of late, Odette Yustman (the heavenly goddess from The Unborn), I begged Sean for the chance to review […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Blu-rays of 2010

As little time as I have to actually sit at home and watch all the Blu-rays I own and check out all the special features they have to offer, there are a certain number of films that I could not pass up when it came to checking them out at my own leisure, in the comfort of my own home. The following list is set of films that I consider to be some of the best that the Blu-ray format has had to offer for this year.

It’s ‘You Again’ Odette Yustman, on Blu-ray!

I have no idea what this movie is about.  I have no care in the world whether it is good or not.  All I know is that I want to see it.  Why?  Because it has been way too long since I have seen a movie with the beautiful Odette Yustman in it (she goes […]

Avatar: Extended Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

James Cameron’s Avatar has arrived in a very impressive 3-disc Extended Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray.  Some folks will scoff about this being the fourth or fifth (sarcastic) dip since it was first released as a bare bone disc earlier in the year.  Scoff all you want, but James Cameron and Fox did say that this […]
