Anne Hathaway’s Passengers Crashes and Burns

Anne Hathaway nearly earned herself an Oscar for her stunning performance in Rachel Getting Married, but she also starred in another 2008 movie, the little-known Passengers. A thriller about a young psychologist who is assigned to deal with the survivors of a jet liner crash only to find that the survivors not only have conflicting […]

The Curious DVD of Benjamin Button

One of the leaders during the Academy Award race, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button came away with “only” three minor awards, its thunder reduced to a whisper by the underdog-that-never-really-was Slumdog Millionaire.  The movie, which stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett and is directed by David Fincher, is now available on DVD. The Curious […]

DVD Review: Galaxy Quest: Deluxe Edition

With Star Trek coming to theaters this week, it only seemed fitting – at least according to Paramount – to re-release Galaxy Quest in an all-new Deluxe Edition format (on May 12, 2009). This sci-fi spoof, which can only be described as a direct yet intelligent spoof of Star Trek and its fans, is a […]

X-Men Volume 1 and Volume 2 Come to DVD

I was born in the 80’s and grew up watching cartoons into the early nineties. One of my staples on Saturday morning was the X-Men animated series. Despite being a DC Comics fan and not a Marvel one as much, there was something about the show that had me waiting with bated breath for every […]

DVD Review: The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008)

2008’s remake of the science-fiction classic The Day the Earth Stood Still was not, when all things were said and done, a box office failure, but Fox had to be disappointed with its lackluster opening weekend, lukewarm critical reception and quick fade from theaters. The overall so-so response sums up the movie pretty well. The […]

No Country for Old Men 3-Disc DVD Review

A little known movie called No Country for Old Men came out a couple years back, raked in a few random awards and then settled into obscurity. With few critics or audiences avidly backing the film, the movie disappeared quickly, taking with it its shoddy acting and direction. Good riddance. Alas, Miramax believes it can […]

DVD Review: Seven Pounds, Starring Will Smith

Will Smith is one of the most consistent box office forces there is. Even his intentionally misspelled 2007 drama The Pursuit of Happyness went on to make well over $100 million in the United States. So, the odds were good that his 2008 follow-up Seven Pounds, which is directed by the same man, Gabriele Muccino, […]

DVD Review: Quantum of Solace DVD

The hit James Bond action flick Quantum of Solace speeds its way onto DVD and Blu-Ray this coming Tuesday, March 24, 2009 in a two-disc special edition. The follow-up to the immensely popular reboot Casino Royale finds us with a new director, an angrier Bond and of course a new set of Bond girls, and […]

DVD Review: Primal Fear Hard Evidence Edition

Primal Fear is one of the best courtroom dramas in the history of cinema. Not only does it feature great performances by Richard Gere and Laura Linney, but it also marks the debut of a talented young man named Edward Norton – some of you may know him. His startling performance earned him an Oscar […]

DVD Review of Choke

Choke arrives on DVD on Tuesday, February 17. Though the movie is from writer Chuck Palahnuik, who is best known for Fight Club, this movie isn’t anything that classic, and as such, fans may be disappointed. Nevertheless, for what it is, it works, offering some entertaining dark comedy about sex addicts and a delusional mother. […]

Atheists Rejoice: Religulous is Coming to DVD

Loyal readers should know that I’m an atheist. And as an atheist, I’m a big fan of Bill Maher’s documentary Religulous. It’s not that I think the movie is an incredible documentary that will convert believers – after all, believers wouldn’t come within ten feet of this movie – but it makes some pretty valid […]

Friday the 13th Movie Reviews

The new Friday the 13th movie comes to theaters this Friday, just in time for Valentine’s Day. From the director of the surprisingly good Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, the movie is destined to be the best of the franchise, even if by default. After all, let’s face it: the Friday the 13th series is terrible. […]

DVD Review: The Enforcer Special Collector’s Edition

The Weinstein Company will release Jet Li’s The Enforcer in a Special Collector’s Edition DVD on Tuesday, February 10, along with a variety of new bonus features including interviews with the producer, former child star Tse Miu and the villain of the picture, Ken Lo – as well as a feature commentary. What The Weinstein […]

Go Blind With the Blindness DVD: A DVD Review

One of my most anticipated movies of 2008, Blindness is directed by Fernando Meirelles, the man behind such visually stimulating films as The Constant Gardener and City of God. Given his stunning resume, Blindness looked like a sure lock for one of the best movies of the year. Starring Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore, the […]

DVD Review of the Bush-Who-Is-No-More: W.

I love movies. I really love movies. I love watching them, I love playing them, and I love stroking them. Wait, what? Ignore that last part. Getting back on track, as much as I love movies, I’m really not a huge fan of bonus features. It’s not that there aren’t some really good bonus features […]
