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? […]

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 […]

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 […]

Disney’s FastPlay DVD Feature a Joke

I watched The Aristocats a couple days ago, and I encountered a very annoying feature that Disney apparently thinks is a device that helps the viewer. It’s called FastPlay, and I’ve run into this piece-of-crap feature on a few DVDs now. What is FastPlay? FastPlay is a feature on the DVD that allows you to […]

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 […]

Upcoming DVD Release Date RSS Feed

Hi everyone. I just created an RSS feed for upcoming DVD release dates. This upcoming DVD release list does not include all those garbage direct-to-DVD releases, and not even all the new TV season DVD releases that you’ve never heard of. This RSS feed includes indie and mainstream DVD releases that are coming out over […]

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 […]

Winter DVD Release Schedule Updated

Over the weekend, I went through and updated the DVD release date schedule for January, February and March 2008 (as well as a few releases in April and even May). I realized I hadn’t updated the DVD release dates in a while, as I managed to add release dates and Amazon.com links for over 50 […]

Sci-Fi Channel’s Mammoth DVD Really Sucks

Mammoth came out on DVD on January 8, 2008, but I had to wait to watch this one with my mom. You see, I’m not a big fan of direct-to-DVD or TV movies, especially ones like Mammoth which are pretty much guaranteed to be lousy. My mom, on the other hand, loves these kinds of […]

Zodiac Director’s Cut: A Whopping Four Minutes Longer

Zodiac, one of the best movies of 2007, is the latest David Fincher masterpiece, a serial killer film completely unlike Se7en it’s completely inappropriate to compare the two. Zodiac is over two and a half hours long, and yet it is suspenseful and intriguing from beginning to end. Wonderfully directed and edited, the movie flows […]

Which Rush Hour Movie is the Best?

I recently got my hands on Rush Hour 3, a movie I normally would have seen in theaters had it not looked a bit dull at the time. A relatively big fan of the first two Rush Hour movies, I’ve found the franchise to be entertaining, even though I have been thoroughly frustrated with the […]
