Blu-Ray Review: Toy Story 3

Believe it or not, there is one Oscar race that is already decided and done. That race doesn’t belong to an actor or a drama, but to Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 3, the sure-lock for Best Animated Picture at the 2011 Academy Awards. Pixar has won nearly every contest in this category since the beginning of […]

Apocalypse Now: Full Disclosure Blu-Ray Collection

Every week the Hollywood studios release more and more previously released movies on Blu-Ray, looking to squeak out a few extra dollars from their stagnant home video businesses. Most movies don’t need Blu-Ray. Do you need to see Sleepless in Seattle in Blu-Ray? What about a comedy made in 1950? As I said, most movies […]

Blu-Ray Review: Beauty and the Beast

Belle, the Beast and the teapots are back as Disney’s Beauty and the Beast debuts on Blu-Ray on Tuesday, October 5, bringing with it not only the classic movie but loads of magical special features. A fitting set for any movie fan’s collection (especially one catering to children, of course), Beauty and the Beast: Diamond […]

DVD Review: Get Him to the Greek Unrated

Drugs, sex and rock ‘n roll are on full display in the critically praised comedy Get Him to the Greek, available today on DVD and Blu-Ray. Starring Russell Brand as Aldous Snow, the sex-fueled singer from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Jonah Hill, who also had a role in Marshall (albeit a different one), Get Him […]

Blu-Ray Review: Jacob’s Ladder

The twisted psychological thriller Jacob’s Ladder was recently released to Blu-Ray, and I’ve been asked to review it. I’m two weeks late, so I’ll make this quick. If for some reason you haven’t seen this 1990 classic, go and rent it now. Or buy it. I don’t care, but watch it. It’s f**ked up beyond […]

What Do Bull Durham, Kalifornia and Escape from New York Have in Common?

MGM may be struggling to get new movies off the ground, but the Blu-Rays keep on coming: in recent weeks, classics such as Bull Durham and Escape from New York have hit high definition, along with an early Brad Pitt thriller called Kalifornia. None of the films need the Blu-Ray format (Escape from New York […]

Does the Kick-Ass Blu-Ray Kick Ass?

That’s the question on everyone’s minds: Does the Kick-Ass Blu-Ray kick ass? There’s a reason why “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” hasn’t yet been repealed, or the economy hasn’t fully recovered. Everyone is just preoccupied with this nagging question. The answer: it’s pretty good. Kick ass? Maybe not, but Lionsgate doesn’t want to get ahead of […]

Sylvestor Stallone Blu-Ray Smackdown: Rambo Collector’s Set

Sylvestor Stallone’s new movie The Expendables explodes into theaters on August 13 (exaggerated marketing pitch? Watch the trailer and tell me you think a better word is suited to describe its arrival), and that means many of his big movies are getting the Blu-Ray “special edition” makeover – along with a few of his pals’ […]

Chloe Striptease: A Blu-Ray Movie Review

I want Amanda Seyfried’s agent. Just a few years ago, the actress was just “the daughter on HBO’s Big Love” or “the really dumb one from Mean Girls“, sort of cute, not really scorching hot. But Mamma Mia that career later and she’s received rave reviews and been in a couple moderate hits; suddenly, she’s […]

Blu-Ray Review: Predator Ultimate Hunter Edition

The Robert Rodriguez-produced “reboot” of the Predator franchise – Predators – opens this coming Friday, and it was inevitable that 20th Century Fox would unleash an updated edition of the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Predator to milk a few extra dollars out of willing cinephiles. This new Blu-Ray edition, titled The Ultimate Hunter Edition, doesn’t provide […]

Percy Jackson DVD Review: Not Very Heavenly

Based on a seemingly popular book series, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief is about a dyslexic teenager in New York who, after being attacked by his step-teacher-turned-winged-creature-from-hell, discovers that he is in fact a demigod, the son of Poseidon, can control water in unnatural ways (he doesn’t have to go to the […]

The Wolfman Movie Review

I’m no math whiz (actually, I kind of am), but when a movie costs $125 to $150 million to make, and only makes $70 million in theaters, that means it lost money. A lot of money. And I’m no movie buff (OK, I definitely am), but when a movie gets bumped back from November 2008 […]

Review: Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog Blu-Ray

Most of us remember where we were when the Writers Guild of America went on strike in 2007. I was sitting in a cafe reading the Wall Street Journal when the news came on television. Everyone stopped, turned and listened to the horrifying news. A woman ran outside screaming. Two children sitting at opposite ends […]

The Road DVD Review

Each awards season, some movies rise above expectations – even above their means – to achieve glory, and others fade from awareness almost immediately. Occasionally, there’s nothing wrong with these movies; they’re just released at the wrong time, promoted poorly or struck by fate. One such film is The Road, the Viggo Mortensen drama-thriller that […]

The Avatar Blu-Ray Experience: Still Good on a TV Screen?

The biggest movie of all time is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray, and if you’re wondering why this review wasn’t written a month ago, that’s because 20th Century Fox didn’t send me a copy to review until this week. Apparently, a lot of websites and newspapers were asking for a copy to review, and […]
