The Howling Reborn Blu-Ray Review

The Howling Reborn Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: In this chilling reboot of the '80s horror classic, Landon Liboiron of ''Terra Nova'' stars as high school senior Will Kidman, whose infatuation with a beautiful classmate (Lindsey Shaw of ''Pretty Little Liars'' and ''10 Things I Hate About You'') begins to trigger certain teenage animal instincts. But when a mysterious woman (Ivana Milicevic of Casino Royale) with a shocking secret re-enters his life, Will learns that he is heir to a powerful line of werewolves. Now he finds he has a choice to make: succumbing to his primal nature or turning against his own. In order to fight the destiny of his legacy and save the girl of his dreams, he must battle not only his growing blood lust but an army of fearsome beasts hell-bent on killing us all. Tonight, the full moon rises. The horror begins anew. This is THE HOWLING REBORN.

Review: The Howling Reborn is the latest in a long line of films in the Howling franchise.  They are seemingly unconnected, except that they are all werewolf tales.  This new feature feels a lot more like Twilight teen-angst, tween fueled drama fest.  The main character looks like Harry Potter and the whole film is rather cheesy.  To be honest, there is a genre for this, it just doesn't appeal to me personally as a viewer.  I think a young audience that is into the whole Twilight thing would really dig this one.

Ace Your Zombie Exam!: The Official Ph.Z. Study Guide Book Review

About the Book: Humans, Zombies—we're not that different. We're all hungry for a better life or post-life. That's why the living and living dead alike are turning more frequently to education in order to improve their standing (or slouching, as the case may be). No enrollment necessary—you need only this book and that high-performance noggin of yours.

Best of all, this guide offers not just any sample test, but the PhZ exam from the esteemed Port-Au-Prince Capon Academy. And at the end, humans can fill out and award an official PhZ diploma! (Zombies are currently only eligible for the SPLAT.)

Our Take: This newest book in the zombie humor genre appears at face value to be pretty good.  I started to read through it though and I got a little lost in the beginning.  The humor is hit and miss and the introduction seems to drag on forever.   Once you get to the actual quiz part..the real test, then it gets fun.  This one is a very light read and is a fun novelty gift for a friend or loved one that is into zombies (and who isn't these days?)

1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die: The Ultimate Guide to Comic Books, Graphic Novels and Manga Book Review

About the Book: Visually amazing, this critical history of comic books, manga, and graphic novels is a must-have for any comic buff or collector.  Over the centuries, comic books and their offshoots, such as graphic novels, manga, and bandes dessinées, have evolved into a phenomenally popular, influential, and unique art form with which we can express our opinions, our fantasies, our nightmares, and our dreams. In short: comics are emphatically no longer just for kids. This diverse, constantly evolving medium is truly coming into its own in the 21st century, from Hollywood's blockbuster adaptations of super-powered caped crusaders to the global spread of Japan's manga and its spinoffs, and from award-winning graphic novels such as Maus and Persepolis to new forms such as online webcomix. This volume is the perfect introduction to a dynamic and globally popular medium, embracing every graphic genre worldwide to assess the very best works of sequential art, graphic literature, comics, and comic strips, past and present.
 
An international survey, this engaging volume is organized according to the year of first publication in the country of origin. An opening section acknowledges pioneering pre-1900 masterpieces, followed by sections divided by decade, creating a fascinating year-by-year chronicle of the graphic medium worldwide. The material includes the very earliest one-off albums to the latest in online comics and features some series and characters that have run for decades.

Packed with fantastic reproductions of classic front covers and groundbreaking panels, this book is visually stunning as well as a trove of information--perfect for the passionate collector and casual fan alike.

Our Take: We're HUGE nerds here at the Legion.  That being said, when we see a book that touts 1001 comics you should read before you die...well, we had to check it out!  This hardcover book is short, fat and THICK!  Its over 950 pages of listings and explanations for each of the 1001 selections.  We agree fully with some and not so much with others.  A few we agree with..Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, The Goon, Hellboy, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, the various Batman selections and the Walking Dead.  These are all great and valid selections...as are many others, but there is a distinct lack of Grendel in this book.  I take great umbridge with this fact and say that you absolutely MUST read Grendel if you consider yourself a fan of the comic book genre.  The scope is epic!  Otherwise, a great book and a fun way to get into some comics you may not be familiar with.  I was introduced to quite a few manga and more obscure books I wasn't familiar with.  Oh, and super geeks will love the forward by Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam!

This insider's guide takes readers on an unforgettable tour of the swashbuckling world of this all-new movie, with in-depth looks at characters, locations, adventures, and more.

Our Take: We're big Disney fans here at the Legion.  With the recent blu-ray release of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides on blu-ray we figured now is a great time to feature this hardcover guide from the fine folks at DK.  The book delves into characters, scenes and plot points in a great and well organized fashion.  The layout is very fun and full of imagery from the film, various maps and historical looking items.  This one is fun for kids and for adult fans looking to relive parts of the newest Pirates film.  The book does include a nice forward by the director, which is a great touch.  This one is a complete win!  Go out and buy the blu-ray and this cool book as a companion piece.

Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope Book Review

About the Book: A photographic look at the world's most exciting pop-culture event.
One of the entertainment industry's most exhilarating, eccentric, and influential events of the year, San Diego Comic-Con International celebrates the weird, wacky, and wonderful world of TV, movies, graphic novels, and…let's not forget, comics.


Oscar-nominated director—and fanboy himself—Morgan Spurlock captures the magic and madness of Comic-Con in a new documentary. This companion book is a photographic celebration of the convention's heart and soul: the fans who attend in costume, in droves, with their kids, with their parents…and with love, awe, and admiration in their hearts.

Comic-Con: An All-Access Look at the World's Largest Pop-Culture Event brings the magic, the masquerade, and the mayhem to you—no ticket required.


Morgan Spurlock was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary for his debut film, Super Size Me. He followed up with the well-received Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden, and produced three seasons of the acclaimed TV series 30 Days. Spurlock conceived, wrote, and directed The Simpsons's 20th Anniversary Special in 3-D! On Ice and contributed to the feature-length adaptation of the New York Times Bestseller Freakonomics. His most recent project, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, hit theaters in 2011.


Alba Tull is an accomplished photographer who has worked with artists and musicians including The Edge (of U2), Jimmy Page, Guillermo del Toro, Bryan Singer, and others. Mrs. Tull's work has been published and exhibited around the world. She served as the photographer and associate producer of Davis Guggenheim's It Might Get Loud, and she is currently working on a special project for the American Film Institute (AFI).

Our Take: We love comic-con here at the Legion.  Yeah..we're HUGE nerds!   We love it all..the comics..the toys..the celebs and of course..the costumes!  This new hardcover book is a wonderful collection of photos and interviews from comic-con, mostly of the various amazing costumes that people wear to the annual event.   This is a wonderful coffee table book for nerds of all ages! 

Hundreds of stunning photos capture the whimsy and wonder, and are accompanied by interviews with the many celebrities who attend, as much to promote their projects as to be part of the fandom:

  • Kevin Smith
  • Seth Green
  • Todd McFarlane
  • Bill Plympton
  • Guillermo del Toro

  • Bryan Singer
  • Eli Roth

Attack the Block Blu-Ray Review

click the title above to read the full review...

Attack the Block Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: From the producers of Shaun of the Dead, Attack the Block is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen street gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London housing project into a sci-fi battleground, the low-income apartment complex into a fortress under siege. And it turns a crazy mix of tough street kids into a team of kick ass heroes. It’s inner city versus outer space and it’s going to explode.

Review: From the two goobers that brought you fantastic comedy like Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead comes Attack the Block.  In fact, one of those guys is in THIS film, as well.  You may know the other one as Simon Pegg, an actor that has gotten a good amount of exposure thanks to the relaunch of the Star Trek films in which he plays Scotty.  Attack the Block is an urban London look at an alien invasion.  The film is rather deadpan, but hilarious at times.  Its well paced and definately has the action, funny characters and great lines that make this one a fun time.

American Pickers: Volume Two DVD Review

American Pickers: Volume Two DVD Review



Synopsis: In small towns, and along America's back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered- valuable relics from our history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes experts to find them - and turn rust to riches. American Pickers follows two of the most skilled "pickers"- Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz- as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history. In this collection, Mike and Frank try to strike a deal with NASCAR Champion Ryan Newman, explore the appropriately named Pickens, South Carolina and try to buy a 300-pound boot.

Review:  American Pickers is a complicated show for us.  We really enjoy collecting and picking..we're pickers ourselves, but the two hosts are so utterly annoying.  They're just douchey to the nth degree.  That being said, the show is still great.  They find a lot of amazing items that they can resell...although it seems like gas station signs and old bicycles are the extent of their personal knowlege, lol.  The second season of American Pickers includes 22 episodes.  This volume 2 DVD includes only the first 8 of those.

Pawn Stars: Volume Three DVD Review



Synopsis: Venture inside the one family-run pawn shop in Las Vegas, where three generations of men use their sharp-eyed skills to carefully assess the value of items ranging from the obscure to the historic. In PAWN STARS, the rarely tactful and always confrontational Harrison family finds the gems and busts the fakes, all in hopes of making the biggest profit possible.


Review: Pawn Stars is one of the favorite shows in our house.  We watch it religiously and we own the first two seasons on DVD.  We're collectors and its great to learn so much about the various artifacts and collectibles that come through their Vegas-based pawn shop.  This DVD set is titled volume three, because it is NOT the complete third season of the show, which disappoints us a bit.  This DVD only has the first 16 episodes of the season, which accounts for just a little more than half of what is out there.   We hope that they'll release another volume collecting the rest of the season soon!   This season had more of the great same old with Rick, the Old Man, Chumlee and Big Haus!

Top Shot: Reloaded, Season 2 DVD Review




Synopsis: HISTORY's explosive competition series targets another hit season.



Sixteen fearless marksmen take aim for the $100,000 prize and the title of Top Shot. The all-new cast of 14 men and 2 women face more intense challenges and surprising twists inspired by history. Trials include shooting from the back of a moving vehicle, shooting while hanging from a 125-foot crane or while being turned upside down.


You'll see the iconic "Tommy Gun" and .44 Magnum -- but not just firearms, the marksmen's skills will also be tested with tomahawks, compound bows, and blow guns. High-speed HD cameras capture the skillful execution of each test in extreme slow motion. Survivor contestant Colby Donaldson returns as host of HISTORY s first elimination series where every contender must possess speed, precision and skill. In the end, only one can be the Top Shot." 
Review: Top Shot is a very original show that airs on the History Channel.  This DVD release represents season two of the show.  The formula is the same as season one, a bunch of contendors that live in a house and take part in various challenges that prove they are great marksmen.  The show consists of teams up until a certain point, where only one can win and be declared the Top Shot.  The show is a good watch as the challenges get more and more difficult!  They do a great job of dramatizing each shot with the high-def camera that does visually stunning slow motion!  If you enjoyed the first season, this one will be an easy watch for you!

Includes all 13 episodes on 4 discs, plus over 85 minutes of exclusive bonus.



BONUS FEATURES: Extended Team Selection; Weapons Rundown; Anatomy of a Shot

Review: CatDog is a hilarious animated show from Nickelodeon that aired back in the late 1990s.  This DVD release contains the first half of season one, with the second half due in 2012.  Catdog was a bizarre hybrid creature that was outcast and lives outside of town, often getting into crazy situations with a great supporting cast of insane animals.  The kids love it and its so fun to be able to share this toon with them for the first time.  This release from Shout Factory is fantastic.  The video transfer looks great on all ten episodes and we can't wait to collect the rest of the series.

Synopsis: Javier, a Sad Clown, finds work in a circus where he befriends an outlandish cast of characters, including the brutish Happy Clown, Sergio, who humiliates Javier daily in the name of entertainment. It is here that he meets Natalia, a gorgeous acrobat and abused wife of Sergio.

With neither man willing to back down, this twisted love triangle evolves into a ferocious battle between Sad Clown and Happy Clown, escalating to unbelievable heights in this shocking, irreverent and unforgettable film.


Review: This is a weird frickin' movie.  I mean that..I don't say it lightly.  Firstly, if clowns are an issue for you, DON'T watch this one!  This is a bizarre spanish film about a few clowns that become soldiers.  This a barrage of violent imagery and crazy situations.  This is without a doubt the weirdest thing I've seen in a long time.  I don't even know what to say about it, lol.  If you're looking for something different..that is definately it.

Rise and Fall of Margaret Thatcher DVD Review

Rise and Fall of Margaret Thatcher DVD Review



Synopsis: Bringing together three outstanding BBC productions, The Rise and Fall of Margaret Thatcher provides a unique insight into the fascinating life of one of the most significant political figures in British history.The Long Walk to Finchley begins on the night Thatcher met her husband-to-be Denis. The film shows Margaret's steely determination to get selected to a "winnable" Tory seat in the fifties and imagines what might have gone on behind-the-scenes during her ten-year struggle to gain a seat in Parliament. The Falkland's Play portrays the backroom story of Thatcher's war. A play that was once deemed too controversial to produce provides a gripping account of how Margaret Thatcher and her government faced one of biggest crises in foreign affairs. Finally, Margaret examines Thatcher's last days in power. The film paints a detailed and compelling portrait of one of the most formidable characters in British politics. Showing at once her strengths and fatal flaws, the film ultimately reveals that the very aspects of her character that helped her secure power were also the ones that ensured her downfall.

Review: This BBC DVD collects three of the best productions on Margaret Thatcher.  These are all very good features in their own rights.  Our favorite is definately 'The Long Walk to Finchley', but all three films do a wonderful job of showing various stages of the legendary Thatcher's life and tribulations.  Her character, her adversity and her achievements are gloriously showcased in this DVD set.  This one is a must watch for anyone interested in Thatcher or political history in general.

Pearl Jam Twenty chronicles the years leading up to the band s formation, the chaos that ensued soon after their rise to megastardom, their step back from center stage, and the creation of a trusted circle that would surround them giving way to a work culture that would sustain them. Told in big themes and bold colors with blistering sound, the film is carved from over 1,200 hours of rarely seen and never before seen footage spanning the band s career. Pearl Jam Twenty is the definitive portrait of Pearl Jam: part concert film, part intimate insider-hang, part testimonial to the power of music and uncompromising artists.

Review: Pearl Jam is one of the few bands to survive the 1990s and the grunge movement.  Eddie Vedder has been a source of controversy many times in his career and this has really kept the band more interesting.  They were very outspoken during the Bush administration and about their feelings on the war and have stayed relevant against all odds.  This documentary, done by the great Cameron Crowe and it shows!  The documentary is in-depth, personal and intimate.  Its a great look at the band with a wonderful mixture of their music and backstage moments and interviews.

DVD includes the feature-length documentary plus 26 minutes of never-before-seen bonus features.

Craig Ferguson: Does This Need To Be Said? DVD Review



Synopsis: The gloriously ribald Scot, Craig Ferguson takes to the stage in this all-new comedy special for a night of jokes and storytelling peppered with the kinds of words he's not allowed to say on network TV. Before a hootin' and hollerin' Nashville audience, Ferguson tackles every topic from celebrity sex scandals to booze to his own hilarious heavy metal past.

Review: Craig Ferguson was first introduced to American audiences on the Drew Carey Show.  Then, he got his own talk show and now he has been doing a bit more stand-up comedy. Craig's act is hilarious.  He delves into a variety of topics, from his early days in Scotland and coming to America.  His parents..his alcoholism and his early career.  The comedy is fresh, raunchy and fantastic!  We absolutely love it and if you have any sense of humor whatsoever you will too!
