The Universe: The Complete Series Megaset Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: We once thought ourselves to be at the center of the world, now we know that we are just a small spec in a giant universe.

Immerse yourself in an astonishing exploration of space with all five seasons of this epic series from HISTORY. Shot in HD with stunning footage from NASA and packed with state-of-the-art CGI graphics THE UNIVERSE takes viewers on a visually arresting journey across the galaxy to bring the beauty and mysteries of the cosmos a little closer to home. Delve into the cataclysmic events that set the stage for life, and visit sites where Earth s birthing process is still in evidence. Relive astronomical triumphs, from the first crude lenses that were able to magnify celestial bodies to probes that blaze to the most distant planets. See the hottest events in the sky, from colliding celestial bodies to collapsing suns. And venture into the uncharted territory of outer space through the visions, studies, and predictions of scientists and explorers on this journey of cosmic discovery, amazement, and adventure.

Now in glorious Blu-Ray, THE UNIVERSE MEGA COLLECTION includes all 63 original episodes of all five seasons of this epic series, plus the feature-length documentary Beyond the Big Bang on 16 discs.

Review: The Universe is one of the best documentary series that we've seen in a long while.  We've been covering it as the individual seasons are released and now this educational space-epic is being released in a huge ultimate megaset on blu-ray.  This Megaset includes seasons 1-5 on blu-ray, plus the 7 Wonders of the Solar System special.

Not only does dad enjoy this one, my wife and kids all love it, as well.  They're just learning about space in the classroom and they can come home to really SEE space in all its glory.  This elusive aspect of nature wasn't available for viewing like this when I was growing up...its a real treat.   This is without a doubt one of the best series on space ever created.  This set is a MUST HAVE!

The special features include: 7 Wonders of the Solar System episode in 3D; Feature-length documentary: Beyond the Big Bang; Featurettes Meteors: Fire in the Sky , Comets: Prophets of Doom , Ask the Universe , Backyard Astronomers

South Park: The Complete Fourteenth Season DVD Review

South Park: The Complete Fourteenth Season DVD Review


Synopsis: All fourteen episodes from South Park's notorious 14th Season are packed into this exclusive three-disc set. Join Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny as they dive into social networking, defend against annoying Jersey “muff cabbage” and finally reveal the secret identity of Mysterion in an epic three-part saga. Top that with some never-before-seen deleted scenes and a little crème fraiche, and you’ve got a collection that will leave you drooling. Shablagoo!!

Review: South Park is the absolute best when it comes to controvertial humor.  The Simpsons laid the groundwork and South Park took it that much further.  Family Guy doesn't even come close to the charm and wit of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's creations!

The fourteenth season of the show was full of great episodes, such as the Jersey Shore spoof "It's a Jersey Thing", "Sexual Healing" and "Crippled Summer".  Its a solid season and this is a perfect release for any fan of the show.  The only issue with this DVD set is that the infamous episodes 200 and 201 are still censored, as they were when they aired.

The special features on this DVD set include: Mini-Audio Commentary by Trey Parker and Matt Stone on all episodes, Bonus Episode: #1302 The Coon (airdate: 03/18/2009) and Deleted Scenes.

Patty Hearst DVD Review


Synopsis: A dramatization of the newspaper heiress' abduction and subsequent brainwashing by the Symbionese Liberation Army.  This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.  This disc is expected to play back in DVD Video \"play only\" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.

Review: Patty Hearst is a fantastic biopic about the real-life heiress that is infamous for developing a serious case of stockholm syndrome after she was kidnapped by the SLA decades ago.  This film is half biopic and half art house film.  Its a great film, because it really shows a great feel for the era with the sometimes trippy filmmaking.  This is a manufacture DVD on demand from MGM, so don't look for this one in stores.

The Art of Neal Adams Book Review

About the Book: From his Ben Casey newspaper strips to Creepy magazine work to groundbreaking comic books, Adams' work serves as an inspiration for every illustrator who works in the field to this day. His topflight 60s and '70s Marvel and DC work are perennial sellers in infinite repackaging. Coinciding with the launch of his Continuity Studio, Adams expanded into cutting-edge advertising work, amusement park ride design, magazine illustration, animation, and paperback book covers. Included in this collection are classic and rare works spanning the artist's noted career and a unique selection of Neal's seldom-seen paintings. Fully annotated by the artist.

Our Take: Neal Adams is one of the most prolific and talented comic book artists of the past quarter century.  His work in fantasy, horror and savage art is world-renowned, but my favorite examples of his work come from the iconic world of Dc Comics' Batman!   Not only was he responsible for a good portion of the merchandise designs from the Batman Forever movie, but he co-created Ra's Al Ghul with Dennis O'Neil!  His talents gave the iconic villain a face.  This new art book features a TON of artwork from all facets of Adams' work, including the Bat.  A lot of pencil work and sketches, along with full-color artwork.  This one is a must for any huge nerd, such as myself!

Marvel Comics: Marvel Unveils David Aja’s Covers to RED SKULL

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story....


Marvel Unveils David Aja’s Covers to RED SKULL
 
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at superstar artist David Aja’s stunning covers to Red Skull! Before his first clash with Captain America, the Red Skull was the Third Reich’s own unholy super-soldier, the product of a warped training regimen designed by Hitler himself. From New York Times Best Selling writer Greg Pak (X-Men: Magneto – Testament) and breakout artist Mirko Colak (Secret Warriors), chart the horrific ascent of Johann Schmidt from his days as starving urchin in the streets of pre-war Berlin to his transformation into the ultimate embodiment of evil.
 
“Due to the nature of the story, I wanted to portray the historical aspects on the covers,” said Aja. “In doing so, I approached the covers as if they were real posters, newspapers and Nazi propaganda from that time, kind of in a documentary style. To make it work, I utilized different typographic techniques for each issue, emulating different typefaces in real work; so I needed a uniform tone, technique and color in the finished art to identify all the covers as a whole collection.”
 
“Red Skull was never intended to be one of our typical super hero comics, so it shouldn’t have anything like typical cover art,” said series editor Alejandro Arbona. “We knew David would invest the thoughtfulness and deliberation to capture the complex and difficult ideas of this story. In short, his covers say ‘This is what we’re doomed to watch Johann become,’ and his imagery – war, conquest, cruelty, a great evil – springs from the same tragic well. It’s a disturbing set of cover images, for a dark and disquieting story.”
 
Where do the true roots of the Skull’s depravity lie? Was this monster made – or born? And what did he sacrifice in his Faustian pact for power? Discover the definitive origin of the Marvel Universe’s greatest scourge for the very first time. This summer, prepare to confront the true face of the Red Skull!

The Boy Friend DVD Review

The Boy Friend DVD Review


THE BOY FRIEND is now on DVD at WarnerArchive.com: http://bit.ly/WAC_Boyfriend

Synopsis: The star has injured an ankle, but the show – and inexperienced stage assistant Polly Browne – must go on. Break a leg, kid. And don’t let the presence of Hollywood director and talent scout Mr. De Thrill add any pressure. And so begins this colorful tale of theater hopefuls with stars in their eyes and greasepaint in their veins, a work that, under the guidance of director Ken Russell, is not just an affectionate filmization of Sandy Wilson’s London/Broadway stage hit but also an homage to the movie stagings of Busby Berkeley – complete with imaginative use of kaleidoscopic top shots and rows of leggy chorines. Fashion icon Twiggy makes her screen debut as sweet-natured Polly, a role played earlier by Julie Andrews in her Broadway debut. Curtain up. Maybe someone will be discovered tonight.

Review: The Boy Friend is the 1971 film adaptation of the 1954 hit London-based musical stage play.  The film is also a musical and starred then hot item, and former model, Twiggy.  Twiggy was granted two golden globes for her role in the film.   The film is a charming musical about an up and coming actress.

There are two versions of this film.  The original theatrical was 109 minutes long, while the extended version (first made available in the late 1980s on VHS) was 137 minutes in length.  The Warner Archive, famous for releasing long lost film, is releasing the extended 137 minute version via their online made-to-order DVDs!  The picture looks great and the film is a ton of fun!

The special features include a vintage "behind the scenes" making-of featurette about the film.

Hold On DVD Review

Hold On DVD Review

HOLD ON! is now on DVD only at the WarnerArchive.com: http://bit.ly/WAC_HoldOn

Synopsis:The career of the British Invasion pop group Herman’s Hermits was in full, fan-shrieking, disc-selling orbit when their first top-billed movie came to theaters, so maybe it’s only natural to think NASA would want to name a rocket after them. Well, at least that’s what’s at stake in this 1966 romp that has the five lads on a U.S. tour, where they’re mobbed by various birds – and secretly monitored by a nerdy scientist to determine if they are rocket worthy. Yes, Hold On! is not so much about making sense as it is about having fun. A double fistful of Hermits' songs (including the Top-10 hits A Must to Avoid and Leaning on the Lamp Post) adds to the good times. Shelley Fabares, no stranger to the charts with 1962’s Johnny Angel, costars.

Review: Hold On was a 1966 promotional vehicle for the boy band  Herman's Hermits.   There was also an album by the same name that served as the soundtrack for the film.  This formula was also used by the Monkeys and the Beatles in various ways back in the 1960s.  The Warner Archive is releasing this classic on DVD through their online store, wbshop.com.

This space race-era comedy is also a little PR boost for NASA, pre-moon landing.  The film is in color and features a very decent transfer resolution.  Its a very funny film and definately one to watch for fans of the band.  Even if you're not a fan of the band, they have great personalities and really shine on screen.  This reminds me of the modern day incarnations of this formula, like Nickelodeon's "Big Time Rush".   A great movie that has been lost for some time!  We definately recommend.

Defiance DVD Review



Synopsis: An out-of work merchant seaman single-handedly tames a powerful street gang ("The Souls") that has been terrorizing his neighborhood on New York City's Lower East Side.
This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.  This disc is expected to play back in DVD Video \"play only\" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.

Review: Definance is a 1980 classic film starring a young Jan-Michael Vincent.  The movie centers around a young seaman who battles gangs in his neighborhood.  The film is full of suspense and violence as this drama unfolds.  This film is a great watch and has been hard to find in recent years.  MGM is finally releasing this on DVD as a manufacture on demand release.

Interest Range: Drama

Call of the Wild DVD Review



Synopsis: Based on the 1903 Jack London (WHITE FANG) adventure classic, CALL OF THE WILD is an exciting tale of gold fever and adventure in the Yukon.  This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. This disc is expected to play back in DVD Video \"play only\" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives

Review: This 1972 remake of the classic story stars Charlton Heston as the lead in this epic tale of a man who grows attached to his sled dog.  They have extensive snow adventures, including hunting for gold.  This remake doesn't quite have the magic of the original 1935 Clark Gable version, but its definately a nice update.  This is a manufacture on demand DVD from MGM, so don't expect to see this in stores...online only!

Interest Range: Vintage Film
