Law Abiding Citizen Movie Review – Coming to Blu-Ray

In late October and into November, while box office phenom Paranormal Activity was making headlines, the Gerard Butler-starring action-thriller Law Abiding Citizen was slowly and quietly working its way to a sizable profit. The movie was an afterthought for many reasons – one because it appeared like yet another forgettable Butler flick (he’d already punished […]

Blu-Ray Review: Surrogates Take Over On 1/26

Bruce Willis wants to save the world! Again! Surrogates, his latest action-thriller, debuts on Blu-Ray and DVD on January 26, 2010. More of a mystery-thriller than an action film, the movie offers up a cool concept with only decent execution, resulting in an entertaining but underwhelming film.

Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball Misses the Target

In 2006, Joe Carnahan unleashed the psychedelic Smokin’ Aces upon audiences, developing a cult following that unfortunately never formulated for his previous, much-better cop thriller Narc. Apparently, Smokin’ Aces was good enough to warrant a sequel – or at least a prequel – because Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball has now arrived on DVD and […]

Blu-Ray Review: Monsters, Inc.

John Goodman are back and Billy Crystal are back… on Blu-Ray! OK, so Monsters, Inc.‘s release on Blu-Ray isn’t that exciting since we’ve now determined that it really isn’t worth upgrading from DVD to Blu-Ray, but at least be excited that the beloved Disney-Pixar movie now comes with some great new special features. And some […]

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 […]

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 […]

Confessions of a Shopaholic DVD Review

Confessions of a Shopaholic comes to DVD next Tuesday, June 23, 2009. The movie is a hate it or dislike it kind of movie, not particularly terrible as it is, ultimately, unoriginal and cliche. Those that did like the film will find little to enjoy on the DVD, as the picture contains an embarassingly small […]

More Friday the 13th DVD Reviews

Paramount Home Video has unleashed another wave of terror upon us by re-releasing three more Friday the 13th movies on DVD, thus confirming that Paramount is, indeed, trying to get everyone in the world to commit suicide simultaneously. This awful franchise only gets worse as it goes along, as The Final Chapter and A New […]

DVD Review: Star Trek: The Trilogy

It takes a little bit of head scratching to figure out what Paramount is talking about when they refer to the Star Trek trilogy, as I’m pretty sure there are eleven films released one after the other with no proclamation of a trilogy. But when it comes down to it, there is a three-part story […]

DVD Review: Defiance (2008)

Defiance was one of those odd films that the studio clearly had no idea what to do with. Despite starring Daniel Craig, hot off the biggest James Bond opening in franchise history, and featuring an established director in Edward Zwick, the WWII action film opened on limited screens and faded into obscurity before it had […]

DVD Review: Revolutionary Road (2008)

Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition) joined forces to make Revolutionary Road, a drama that flew under the radar in December 2008 and received lukewarm reviews from critics, despite being one of the best of the year. This emotional and shocking tale will be available on DVD this coming […]

DVD Review: Taken (2009)

First there was Paul Blart, and then there was Taken. It was only January 2009, and we had two major – and surprise – hits on our hands. I remember when I first watched the movie preview for Taken, the Liam Neeson-starring thriller that looks and feels a lot like a B-grade version of The […]

DVD Review: Tom Cruise’s Valkyrie (2008)

A lot of people shrugged off Valkyrie due to the presence of Tom Cruise, his American accent while portraying a German and the eye patch he wears throughout much of the picture. Then again, not that many people shrugged it off, as the Nazi film went on to make $200 million worldwide, proving that despite […]

Donnie Darko Sequel: S. Darko DVD Review

There are many movies that have been released over the years where sequels make sense. That doesn’t mean they need sequels, but you can see how it’ll work. A sequel to Donnie Darko, however, never crossed my mind. Donnie Darko, one of the most unique, intriguing, mind-bending and debate-invigorating films of the 21st century, is […]

DVD Review: My Bloody Valentine 3D

My Bloody Valentine 3D comes to DVD this Tuesday, May 19, 2009, and I’ll just say: wait until the new Friday the 13th hits stores. When I saw the movie in theaters, I found it mildly amusing, if only for how bad it was and for the fact that it was in 3D. The movie […]
