Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead DVD Review

Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead was released on DVD on April 15th, so I’m a few days behind on my DVD review. The movie, as you probably don’t know, is about two brothers (Philip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke) who, after some rough times, decide to commit an armed robbery. Their target of choice? […]

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 […]

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: 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 […]

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 […]

Is Braveheart Special Collector’s Edition DVD worth the money?

A new DVD edition of Braveheart comes to stores this Tuesday, December 18th, and with it comes some supposedly new special features that fans of the film might be interested in. From what I could find on Amazon.com, at least some of the special features haven’t been done before, though I can’t say for sure. […]

DVD Review: I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007)

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is now out on DVD, and I’ve been gifted with a free copy. Since I thought the movie was one of Adam Sandler’s worst comedies ever, it’s not a very good gift, but a gift nonetheless. You can read the full Chuck and Larry movie review here, but […]
