DVD Review: Legendary

There are some things in life that are better when combined. Chocolate and peanut butter, for example. Smooth jazz and a rainy night. Dozens of others. Our friends at Lionsgate took a bit of a chance on another such combination in “Legendary,” a copy of which they sent out for review. “Legendary” joins Travis Preston, more »

DVD Review: Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove Season One

Sometimes you just want a little something that you can settle in quietly and watch. Maybe it’s a rainy Sunday, maybe it’s been a rough day at work, maybe it’s Black Friday and you’ve hit all the doorbusters. Whatever the circumstances, sometimes you want calm and relaxing, and generally, Hallmark Channel is a great place more »

DVD Review: The Marx Brothers TV Collection

You know, I’ve used the phrase “a history lesson” around here plenty, usually when talking about an old title Shout Factory converted to Blu-ray. But today, Shout Factory’s putting on a downright history clinic with “The Marx Brothers TV Collection,” a copy of which it sent out for review, and this one is going to more »

DVD Review: Anna Karenina

Happy families are all alike…that’s the start of “Anna Karenina,” at least, the novel version, depending on the translation you’re using by some reports. It’s been around for a long time, and our friends out at Acorn Media sent out a copy of “Anna Karenina”, the latest adaptation of said classic novel. Though in this more »

Blu-ray Review: Ray Donovan Season One

Sometimes there’s nothing quite like a good crime drama, though if you came in expecting a story about the former Secretary of Labor by the same name, you’ll come away sadly disappointed. Our friends at CBS Home Entertainment sent out a copy of “Ray Donovan: Season One” for us to review, and though this might more »

Blu-ray Review: Last Action Hero

It was one of the biggest movies that 1993 could offer up, and for those of us who remember 1993, our friends out at Mill Creek Entertainment are about to give us a shot of nostalgia the likes of which few will be able to touch. Specifically, they sent out a copy of “Last Action more »

Blu-ray Review: Open Grave

It may not seem like the greatest time for horror film, especially given that horror’s big season won’t start for another three months yet, but there’s seldom a bad time to get ready and build up a backlog for the long, cold, dark months ahead, and that’s where Cinedigm comes in, who sent out a more »

Blu-ray Review: The Legend of Billie Jean

Fair is fair…that’s a lesson from earliest childhood that tends to get lost in the complexity of adulthood. It’s easy to slip out of one’s obligations by using the language rather than the intent of an agreement, or by denying an agreement was ever struck. Our friends at Mill Creek Entertainment sent over a copy more »

DVD Review: Hell on Wheels: The Complete Third Season

The building of the railroad in the United States was no small task, and the people behind its construction no small people. Nowhere is that more obvious than with “Hell on Wheels,” and our friends out at Entertainment One sent out a copy of “Hell on Wheels: The Complete Third Season” for us to review more »

DVD Review: The Den

If you’ve ever looked at Chatroulette or the like and thought, man, that’s great fodder for a horror movie, then I suggest you go buy a lottery ticket because that idea now exists. Today we check out one of the biggest new titles from our friends at IFC, who sent out a copy of “The more »

Blu-ray Review: Lake Placid

I was definitely surprised to see Scream Factory come out with a Blu-ray translation of “Lake Placid”–given that they’d been throwing eighties movies at me left, right and center, I was stunned to see something comparatively recent–but they sent on a copy anyway, and if you ever wanted to see Bill Pullman and a gigantic more »

Blu-ray Review: Anaconda

It’s time for a bit of a history lesson, folks, and this time courtesy not of Scream Factory, but of Mill Creek Entertainment instead. Today’s shot of surprisingly entertaining film history comes in the form of “Anaconda”, a copy of which was sent out on Blu-ray for us to review, and though this movie has more »
