Drag Me to Hell Blu-Ray Review

Sam Raimi’s return to horror – Drag Me to Hell – failed to register with viewers as it faded into the pits of heck faster than a cow at an Australian barbecue. It’s a shame, because the movie is an entertaining blast, full of demon hauntings, crazy old gypsie women and more than one kind […]

Don’t Get Lost in Snow White Blu-Ray

Snow storms can be blinding. I can’t say I’ve been in one where I haven’t been able to see, but there was a movie released a few weeks ago that relies on this premise, so it must really happen. After all, Hollywood never lies. But in other news, I popped the all-new Snow White and […]

Blu-Ray Review: X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Every once in a while a movie comes along that defies expectations, that rocks its very essence, that destroys all hope of anything ever succeeding it. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not that film. If X-Men 3 was a disappointment – and it was – Wolverine is a mitigated disaster, full of hammy dialogue, rushed storytelling […]

Blu-Ray Review: The Office: Season 5

With season six looming, NBC is releasing The Office: Season 5 on DVD and Blu-Ray this Tuesday. With the 26 episodes comes the typical bonus feature culprits – deleted scenes, episode commentaries and a gag reel – but in this case, that’s actually a good thing. As has been the case with other seasons of […]

Sunshine Cleaning Movie Review

From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine comes another seemingly bright dramedy titled Sunshine Cleaning, about two down-and-out women who start a crime scene cleaning business. Though I’m generally not fooled by the “from the producers of” marketing spin films are often given, I did fall for this one: following the trailers, casting and even […]

Adventureland DVD Not Full of Adventure

Those expecting Superbad things from director Greg Mottola’s follow-up comedy Adventureland may be disappointed. The R-rated drama-comedy, about a young man in the 1980’s who desperately takes a job at a trashy carnival and finds first love, is a well-made and engaging film, but it isn’t nearly as funny as Superbad, nor is it meant […]

New How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days DVD Loses

Paramount, in its never-ending battle (along with the other studios) to make money off of movies they’ve already released, is re-releasing How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days on DVD and Blu-Ray on August 25, 2009. The movie, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson as two opposing forces each trying to break the […]

Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series DVD Review

It must be crazy to say that Battlestar Galactica is one of the best television series ever made, simply because I and so many other people have been repeating such a statement for years now. Why say a thing repetitively when almost everyone who you talk to believes you already? That, my friends, is insanity. […]

Two Lovers Movie Review: Joaquin Phoenix Burns Bright

Joaquin Phoenix. What comes to mind when you hear that name? Two-time Academy Award nominee?  Younger brother of River Phoenix? Or crazy, bearded rapper wannabe who embarrassed himself, either intentionally or not, on a variety of occasions over the last several months? Regardless, what he isn’t known for is his “final” movie Two Lovers, which […]

Playboy Bunnies Can’t Save Miss March

There are good movies, and there are bad ones. That’s a John Madden thing to say, but it’s true. Miss March, sad to say, falls clearly into the latter category, and doesn’t even appear to care. Zach Cregger and Trevor Moore wrote, directed and star in this road trip movie, about a guy who fell […]

DVD Review: Dollhouse: Season One (2009)

When Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse debuted in February, I was mildly intrigued to see what the man had come up with. I never watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer but was a huge fan of Firefly and its companion film Serenity, and so Whedon’s name alone was enough to get me to watch the premiere. The show […]

Mad Men: Season 2 DVD Review

The Golden Globe-winning series Mad Men brings Season 2 to DVD this Tuesday, and along with it all 13 episodes of some of the best drama on television. Season 2 builds upon the foundations created in the first season while giving the characters more things to do, and more importantly, more avenues to explore.

Kristin Kreuk is Hot, Street Fighter is Not

There’s bad, and then there’s Street Fighter bad. And what’s worse than a Street Fighter movie but an unnecessary, unwanted sequel fifteen years after the franchise’s heyday, starring a TV actress and lacking a plot? Yes, it’s Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. One has to think that 20th Century Fox had this absurd idea […]

12 Rounds Movie Review (Now on DVD)

One would think that after The Marine Hollywood would have decided that John Cena wasn’t cut out for movies, but the professional wrestler is back, this time to save his wife from the hands of an evil mastermind, in 12 Rounds. If that sounds like the plot of The Marine only more absurd, you’re not […]

Now on DVD: Dark Streets Movie Review

When I saw the previews for Dark Streets, I was intrigued. It looked like a darker Moulin Rouge meets Chicago, a smoky musical thriller set in the underworld of New Orleans. Unfortunately, reality is often much less exciting. Dark Streets stars Gabriel Mann as Chaz, a playboy and nightclub owner who finds his life spinning […]
