Zack and Miri Make a Porno DVD Review

It’s funny: of all the successful comedies of the year, one of the funniest, which combined the likes of Seth Rogen with the director who made his kind of comedy possible in the first place – Kevin Smith – flopped. One shouldn’t have been surprised, given that Kevin Smith has hardly been a box office […]

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints Limited Edition DVD

Back in 2006, when A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints was first released, the movie was a surprisingly decent flick with a recognizable but not-staggering cast. Flash forward three years and the movie has changed significantly: it’s a surprisingly decent flick with an A-list cast. Back in 2006, the movie starred Robert Downey, Jr., who […]

Mary Poppins: 45th Anniversary DVD Review

OK, I’ll admit it: I’d never seen Mary Poppins. In fact, I didn’t even know what it was about. I knew that some lady named Julie Andrews was the star – and of course I know who Dick Van Dyke is – but other than that, I heard something about it being a cheesy combination […]

Movie Review: Breakfast at Tiffany’s

This will be a short movie review, simply because there is little to say. For those of you who have been reading my blog with some consistency, you’ve noticed that I’ve been slowly working my way through the many classic Audrey Hepburn movies, that I, as a 20-something male, never got around to seeing. This […]

Underworld/Underworld Revolution Double Feature DVD Review

Kate Beckinsale. Kate Beckinsale in tight, black leather. Kate Beckinsale sucking blood and making nooky with a hairy vampire. This stuff sells tickets, folks. The first Underworld is the perfect example of glitz over substance, but a fast-paced storyline, lots of action, R-rated gore and yes, Kate Beckinsale in black leather, made it a worthwhile […]

DVD Review: Jack Bauer Gets Trapped in Mirrors

Fox’s hit TV show 24 starts today, January 11th, so it’s no surprise that its main character, Jack Bauer, is getting three straight days of action. Two hours of 24 on Sunday, two more hours on Monday, and then, on Tuesday, Kiefer Sutherland’s horror movie Mirrors arrives on DVD. Mirrors is a creepy movie, for […]

Movie Review: My Blood Valentine Rips Out the Heart

This February, audiences will be greeted to an all-new 3D adventure in the form of My Bloody Valentine 3D, a remake of the 1981 horror film My Bloody Valentine, which is about a crazy miner who goes around murdering people. In anticipation of the new 3D film, it’s no surprise that Paramount and Lionsgate have […]

Does Audrey Hepburn Have a Funny Face?

In my continued case to see all things Audrey Hepburn, I popped Funny Face into my DVD player today. Thankfully, Paramount Pictures has been releasing Hepburn films over the last few months under its Centennial Edition banner, and Funny Face is the latest to be re-released. Having just watched Sabrina, Roman Holiday and, of course, […]

DVD Review: Pineapple Express Hits a High

The funny Judd Apatow action-comedy Pineapple Express arrives on DVD this Tuesday, and comes packed with more than just a dime bag of bonus features. Seth Rogen and James Franco star as two potheads who become involved in a murder plot, forcing them to go on the run and, eventually, to attack the drugdealers who […]

DVD Review: Battlestar Galactica: Season 4.0

On January 16th, Battlestar Galactica returns with its final season, the end of a glorious run. BSG is easily one of the best sci-fi shows ever made, and one of the best dramas, too. It’s had its ups and downs, of course, but even it’s worst episode is better than the best episodes of some […]

DVD Review: Eagle Eye

Eagle Eye is the perfect B-grade thriller, a fast-paced, excited and well budgeted picture with quality acting and enough chaos to satisfy most fans. It is also ridiculous at times, forcing you to stretch your imagination far beyond what you expected. Still, if you accept that, the movie is pretty damn entertaining. The 2-Disc Special […]

DVD Review: Burn After Reading (2008)

Of all the films to be released in 2008, Burn After Reading is one of the more divisive of the group. Some people loved the movie, some hated it, and a few, like me, were somewhere in the middle. It’s definitely a picture of extremes, as the humor and rather aimless story went right over […]

Movie Review: Van Damme’s In Hell on DVD

I received a copy of In Hell in the mail this last week, as the 2003 direct-to-DVD Jean-Claude Van Damme is being re-released in a new limited edition. Why such a film deserves a re-release only a few years later is beyond me, but then again, it gave me the opportunity to watch this incredible, […]

DVD Review: The Day the Earth Stood Still

A week from now, Jennifer Connelly and Keanu Reeves will storm onto theaters in the almost-expected remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. The 2008 version looks to be drastically different from the 1951 classic, but that might not be that bad of an idea.Smartly, 20th Century Fox is re-releasing the original in an […]

TV DVD Review: Lost: Season 4

As an American, I have proudly watched hours upon hours of television my entire life. In fact, I’m pretty sure I was at least listening to television while still in the womb. From The Wonder Years to Darkwing Duck, from Happy Days to Mork and Mindy, from Law and Order to Matlock, I have seen […]
