With all the bad press that Mel Gibson is receiving, I can always count on his old movies to remind me of happier times. It was a time where he killed Jet Li underwater, a time where he fought for Scottish freedom, a time where he sang with Pocahontas, and a time that he knew what women More >
Last week, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 was released on Blu-ray and DVD. Fans were finally able to see the finale to Frank Miller’s epic story of Batman in his later years having to return to protect the streets of Gotham City. While Batman may be busy dealing with the Joker, we had the More >
Oh holiday seasons, so many games to play and family things to do, sometimes it’s easy to miss the simple things like staying home and watching animes, including those with 28 episodes. In December, NIS America released for the first time in the US Umineko: When They Cry Volume.
One anime on the More >
Wreck-It Ralph was definitely one Top 10 movies of 2012. It had a great moving story and genuinely knew the source material. Earlier this week it was announced that Wreck-It Ralph would finally make his way to Blu-ray and DVD this March, but for the first time ever Disney is releasing the film More >
The Amazing Spider-Man Blu-ray hits store shelves soon, and I had a chance to play around with the free Amazing Spider-Man Second Screen App (check out our Blu-ray review here). The app is available for the iPad and Sony Tablet S/Xperia Tablet S. By using the Second Screen App, you’ll be able to More >
I was genuinely excited when I heard that the new Spider-Man movie was going to be 3D. I became even more excited about the prospect when the trailer showcased the Spider-Man POV at the end. Ultimately, I enjoyed the experience when I watched it in IMAX 3D, but how does the home video version look More >
Books have been adapted to the screen many times before with examples like The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter series. Enter Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. What’s unique about this movie is that the screenplay was written by the author of the book. This would lead one to think that the movie More >
Well everyone, the moment we have been waiting for is here! Marvel’s The Avengers has finally arrived on Blu-ray and DVD for our home viewing pleasure. In typical Disney fashion, Disney has released multiple versions of the Blu-ray for you to choose from. The 4-disc Blu-ray set including Blu-ray More >
There is a lot of anticipation for the September 25th release of The Avengers Blu-ray. It will be the first time for many to see the highly talked about Item 47 short film, as well as, the 45 minutes of additional footage cut from the movie. Recently, a few clips have began to pop up on the More >
One of my fondest film-related memories of my childhood was the Sci-Fi classic, Gremlins. The film gave an entire generation a lovable hero that would be idolized for years to come, and the film fits perfectly with the wave of Sci-Fi films in the 80s. Produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by More >
To celebrate the release of the Spider-Man Trilogy Blu-rays and the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man movie, we’re going to be giving away five Blu-ray copies of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Trilogy.
Thanks to The Amazing Spider-Man “SECRETS UNMASKED” Truck Tour for sponsoring the prizes. The tour is hitting More >
When I first heard that Brad Bird was going to be directing Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, a part of me was very excited. He directed some great animated films like The Incredibles, Ratatouille and The Iron Giant. Another part of me was skeptical. Can an animated film director cross over to More >
Lucasfilm and Paramount have announced yesterday that Indiana Jones will be heading to Blu-ray this Fall. Not a lot of details were given, but we do know that it will include all 4 Indiana Jones movies. Yes, even the “Nuke the Fridge” one with killer ants, Shia the Monkey King, and More >
Tarsem Singh is a hit-and-miss director for me. I highly enjoyed his work in The Cell with Jennifer Lopez with its highly stylized imagery and disturbing tale of a serial killer. In The Fall, the story didn’t draw me in and I was More >
Sequels from DreamWorks rarely disappoint and this one did not. Our lovable and ever so hungry panda, Po (Jack Black), is back. Along with his friends, the Furious Five: Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Viper (Lucy Liu), Monkey (Jackie Chan), Crane (David Cross), and Mantis (Seth Rogan).
This time the More >
Oh yeah! One of my favorite films of all time is coming to Blu-ray with state-of-the-art digital restoration & enhanced high definition sound. The Rocketeer featured Billy Campbell, Jenifer Connelly, Alan Arkin, and Timothy Dalton in a story of an American super hero, of-sorts, who was propelled More >
As expected from a movie coming from two great movie minds, J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg, it was in good hands when those two decided to take part in it. I am a big fan of Steven Spielberg since E.T. and a fan of J.J. Abrams’ Fringe and Alias, as well as his movies Cloverfield and Star More >
The copy we had for review is the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides 2-Disc Combo Pack. The Blu-ray is available today, October 18, 2011.
A part of me truly wished that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides would bring back the magic of the first movie, The Curse of the Black Pearl. More >
The Fast and the Furious series has been a hit and miss for me. I enjoyed the first a lot, the second one was okay, the third one I really liked (since it had Tokyo and drifting), and the fourth one was okay (that tunnel scene was pretty bad). Fast Five I thought was the best one yet.
The fifth More >
A lot of fans were bitching about the changes made to the Star Wars Blu-ray Set, including me. Sometimes bitching helps to sway a filmmaker’s decision, for example, Michael Bay getting rid of the stupid-looking twin robots in Revenge of the Fallen. This time the bitching will not help since George More >
We have seen many superhero films come and go over the years. The last one I ever expected to succeed as a big budget summer tentpole was Marvel Studio’s THOR. Treading into the dangerous realm of magic, many feared it would scare off general audiences by being too unrealistic. Even though it is More >
GANTZ is a Japanese live-action movie based on the anime and manga of the same name. Adaptations are always a mixed bag, but one thing’s for sure, GANTZ is one of the better ones. I should have guessed so since it is from the same producers as the Death Note live-action movies, which were also good More >
I remember going to a midnight screening of REPO!: The Genetic Opera a couple of years back. The theater had accidentally double booked two midnight screenings that evening. One for REPO! and another for The Big Lebowski. The Juxtaposition of goths mixed with long haired ‘Dudes’ wearing bath robes More >
Here’s a pretty cool trailer for Star Wars: The Complete Saga Blu-ray. It starts off with Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader getting ready to have a light saber duel. I’m so tempted to buy this, but I must resist, because what I really want is the original trilogy remastered on Blu-ray. I know that’ll More >
Believe this or not faithful readers, but I am a fanboy. I know right? Who would have thought? I am also willing to bet my bottom dollar that the majority of you who come to this site are too. When PAUL was released this year, I was torn. On one had it starred Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (A More >
