Cloverfield DVD Review and Bonus Features Review

Some people hated Cloverfield. I honestly don’t get it. The movie is fast-paced, action-packed, has great special effects and is rarely, if ever, cheesy. How many monster movies, especially movies about big monsters that attack cities, can make that claim? Cloverfield is probably the closest thing you’ll get to a “realistic” monster movie. As for […]

How Good is the New Day of the Dead (2008)?

Poor Mena Suvari. The actress, fairly attractive and a decent actress, started off her career about as good as anyone who isn’t named Jennifer Hudson can do: not only did she have a major part in one of the last great teen classics, American Pie, but she was the title character in one of the […]

Sweeney Todd DVD is Worth Purchasing… Too Bad the Movie Sucks

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, the movie musical starring Johnny Depp and directed by Tim Burton, arrives on DVD today (Tuesday). Personally, I thought the movie was a disaster – the music is terrible, the story boring (amazing, considering the movie is about a serial killer who slices people’s necks and then […]

DVD Review: There Will Be Blood (2007)

There Will Be Blood, one of the best if not the best movie of 2007, makes its way onto DVD April 1st, and with it comes a 2-disc Collector’s Edition. From the actual box down to the features within, the DVD stays true to the look and feel of the film, with a rugged, turn-of-the-century […]

DVD Review: Into the Wild (2007)

Sean Penn’s Into the Wild is now available on DVD in a 2-disc Collector’s Edition. While the movie is one of the better films of 2007 (I hesitate to say one of the year’s best), the DVD is lackluster by anyone’s definition. The second disc, which houses the special features, contains only two featurettes, one […]

The Kite Runner on DVD + DVD Review

The Kite Runner, considered one of the better foreign language films of 2007, comes to DVD today. The film actually got a lot of attention, even though it was nowhere to be found at the Academy Awards (other than a nomination for music). While a lot of people liked this film, I found The Kite […]

Disney’s FastPlay DVD Feature a Joke

I watched The Aristocats a couple days ago, and I encountered a very annoying feature that Disney apparently thinks is a device that helps the viewer. It’s called FastPlay, and I’ve run into this piece-of-crap feature on a few DVDs now. What is FastPlay? FastPlay is a feature on the DVD that allows you to […]

DVD Review: The Aristocats Special Edition

The Aristocats arrived on DVD in February. I was supposed to review it in February. I didn’t. It’s now March, and I finally got to the film. As much as I could watch anyway. I don’t believe that, even in my childhood, I ever saw The Aristocats, and as such, my childhood sentiment for the […]

No Country for Old Men Stripped Of Best Picture Oscar

… or that’s what should happen. I liked No Country for Old Men, which comes to DVD this Tuesday. At the time I saw it in theaters, I thought it was a strong contender for Best Picture. Despite a lackluster ending, the movie is dark, meaningful and well conceived, with all elements working together in […]

Hi everyone. I just created an RSS feed for upcoming DVD release dates. This upcoming DVD release list does not include all those garbage direct-to-DVD releases, and not even all the new TV season DVD releases that you’ve never heard of. This RSS feed includes indie and mainstream DVD releases that are coming out over […]

Is the American Gangster DVD Worth the Money?

American Gangster, the well-received cop/gangster movie starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, is now out on DVD. The movie is pretty good, though I’d say it’s a bit overrated. The pacing could have been a little better, and American Gangster definitely doesn’t compare to any Scorcese gangster flick (and it has been compared to those […]

DVD Review: Lake Placid 2 Unrated

Why do I subject myself to watching movies like this? Lake Placid 2: Unrated, a direct-to-DVD horror movie release, was just asking to be bad, and guess what? It is bad. Really bad. I have to admit that I sort of liked the original Lake Placid, starring Bill Pullman. It was cheesy and not the […]

Four new movies are coming to DVD today, January 22, 2008. These DVD releases range from pretty decent to downright terrible, and here’s your guide to each: Recommended DVD Releases The Game Plan (2007) The Rock stars in Walt Disney’s The Game Plan, a family film about a pro quarterback who, while on the run […]

Winter DVD Release Schedule Updated

Over the weekend, I went through and updated the DVD release date schedule for January, February and March 2008 (as well as a few releases in April and even May). I realized I hadn’t updated the DVD release dates in a while, as I managed to add release dates and Amazon.com links for over 50 […]
