Lars and the Real Girl DVD Sucks

I just received the Lars and the Real Girl DVD today in the mail. I got home from work at 5:30, went to my chiropractor’s from 6 to 7, watched the Seattle Mariners finally win a game (what is going on with their bullpen/offense?) and then squeezed in a trip to Costco. Got back at […]

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 […]

Second 21 Movie Review + 21 Weekend Box Office

Have you ever gone to a movie theater by yourself? I don’t know about you, but I feel a bit like a loser when I do. Very rarely will I go by myself, but I know what I think when I see some guy show up with his popcorn, sit down at the end of […]

Review: Battlestar Galactica: Season 4 TV Premiere

If I believed in God, I would thank Him. After all, thanks to my friends at New Media and the Sci-Fi Channel, I am blessed with an early copy of Battlestar Galactica: Season 4: Episode 1, which is called He That Believeth in Me. I have been waiting to stick the DVD into my player […]

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 […]

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 […]

Horrorfest 2007 Movie Review: Lake Dead

Beautiful girls in little or no clothing get raped and murdered in Lake Dead, a B-grade crapfest version of The Hills Have Eyes meets The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. One of 2007’s Horrorfest films, Lake Dead has its moments, but most are uninentional. Lake Dead follows three beautiful sisters who have just learned that they have […]

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 […]

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 […]

Is The Bucket List (2007) as Bad as Movie Critics Say?

I just watched The Bucket List, nearly two months after it was originally released in theaters. The Jack Nicholson/Morgan Freeman death comedy didn’t get very good reviews – only 42% fresh at Rotten Tomatoes – and as such as I had relegated to this to the rental pile. However, on a cold Saturday night, one […]

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 […]
