Justice League: Doom Blu-Ray / DVD Review



Synopsis: The world's greatest superheroes face their ultimate challenge--the mind of the Batman--when the Darknight Detective's secret plans to take down his Justice League colleagues should they turn against mankind fall into the hands of immortal villain Vandal Savage and a cabal of their deadliest enemies.

Review: The film opens up with that familar growl..the voice of the definitve Batman, Kevin Conroy.  Its just fantastic to hear each and every time.  We are treated almost immediately to a fantastic action-packed battle between the main League members and the Royal Flush Gang. 

Justice League: Doom goes onto be one of the best Dc Universe films to date!    We get a fantastic level of animation, high-quality voice acting, including a return to the Green Lantern character by Nathan Fillion and a return to the Flash from Michael Rosenbaum!  This one feels like a nice extention of the JLU series.  This one is highly enjoyable from start to finish and is sure to please any Dc Comics fan!

Nerdy Note: After watching the discussion between Superman and Batman near the end of the film, I'm convinced that we will be getting HUSH made into a film sooner than later.  An item he provides Superman certainly does open that possibility up a bit.

Interest Range: Animation, Batman

Insight DVD Review


Synopsis: While attempting to save the life of a fatally stabbed young woman, ER nurse Kaitlyn is accidentally electrocuted by a backfiring defibrillator. Upon awakening, she begins to experience memories that are not hers, but rather those of the now deceased victim. With her sanity in question and nowhere to turn, Kaitlyn must weave through the womans past and piece together her memories before the killer strikes again.

Review: In the realm of psychological thrillers we're rarely surprised these days.   Insight takes this cliche'd genre and really freshens it up!  The acting in this film is fantastic, the directing even better and this one will leave you guessing until what we'll call one of the best twists in a long while!  Check it out!

Mandrill Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Antonio is made an orphan when his parents are brutally murdered. As years of vengeance build up, he transforms into a relentless bounty hunter code-named "Mandrill." His sole mark is to find his parents' murderer and avenge their deaths. While on the job to capture a powerful Mafioso casino owner, Mandrill falls for his target's daughter, Dominique. As he becomes closer to her, he makes a discovery that positions Dominique as an obstacle to his ultimate revenge.

Review: I went into Mandrill thinking I was getting a bad ass revenge flick.  What I got was a bizarre and unexpected throwback to 1970s television!   The campy scenes..the music..the worldplay..it was all just weird.  The film, at its core, is fun..as a spoof or tribute to an era well forgotten.
The special features on this blu-ray include: Behind the Scenes of Mandrill, Anatomy of a Fight Scene and aTrailer.

I Melt With You Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Richard (Thomas Jane), Ron (Jeremy Piven), Jonathan (Rob Lowe), and Tim (Christian McKay) are friends from college who gather each year for a hardcore weekend of partying. As the weekend progresses, fueled by sex, drugs, and rock n roll, their reunion drives them to an unexpected place where each is forced to confront himself and the choices he's made in his life.

Review:  What first drew me to I Melt With You was the stellar cast.  What kept me watching was the dark, twisted nature of this fantastic look into middle-aged life.  What happens when you can't shed the demons of your youth?  What happens with you're middle aged and you've screwed it all up. This film is poetic, dramatic and an absolute must see!

The special features on this blu-ray include: Commentary with Director, Lowe and Piven, Commentary with Director, Co-Writer and Director of Photography, Director’s Statement , Deleted Scenes, Behind the Scenes, HDNet: A Look at, Interview with Piven; Piven Mood Piece, Thomas Jane Teaser, Director's Behind the Scenes Photo Gallery, Alternate Theatrical Poster Gallery, Redband Trailer, Greenband Trailer, International Trailer and Interview with Director.

Track 29 DVD Review

Track 29 DVD Review



Synopsis: George Harrison’s Handmade Films presents Track 29, starring Gary Oldman (Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy, Sid and Nancy), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future, Taxi), and Theresa Russell (Wild Things). Distraught and dreamy Linda Henry (Russell) is unhappy with her sexless, childless marriage to surgeon Henry Henry (Lloyd). Desperate for a diversion, she is captivated when Martin (Oldman) suddenly drops in on Linda claiming to be the child she gave up for adoption after a teenage pregnancy. They spend time together trying to find a bond, but strange behaviors and bizarre events indicate that things aren’t as they seem. Is Martin really the son she gave up for adoption at birth or just figment of her imagination?

Review: I had never seen Track 29, as the film came out back in 1988 and I was only nine!   Going back now and watching this film, it should definately get some more attention.  The gritty and trippy feel is perfect for this film.  This one is a definate precursor to the themes found in Fight Club a decade later.   The cast is to die for...Christopher Lloyd and Gary Oldman.  Oldman turns in a fantastic early performance and really blows you away with his insanity.  I highly recommend this to anyone that digs underground and subversive film.

London Boulevard Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: The directorial debut of William Monahan, the Oscar®-winning screenwriter of The Departed, London Boulevard follows an ex-con trying to make a fresh start in a relationship with a reclusive actress. A sexy, stylish gangster thriller bristling with wit and brutal intrigue, London Boulevard stars Colin Farrell and Keira Knightley as star-crossed lovers who run afoul of one of London’s most vicious crime bosses.

Review: London Boulevard is a bizarre film.  Its rather erratic and all over the place with characters and plot.  It stars two amazing actors in Farrell and Knightly and they both deliver a great performance.  This one is all fun and if you're not looking to take something too seriously, it'll be a great watch for you.

The special features include: The Making of London Boulevard

J. Edgar Blu-Ray / DVD Combo Review



Synopsis: Leonardo DiCaprio (Inception, Blood Diamond) stars as J. Edgar Hoover, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for nearly 50 years. Hoover was feared, admired, reviled and revered, a man who could distort the truth as easily as he upheld it. His methods were at once ruthless and heroic, with the admiration of the world his most coveted prize. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career and his life. Oscar Winner Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino, Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven) directs an all-star cast including Naomi Watts (21 Grams), Armie Hammer (The Social Network) and Oscar Winner Judi Dench (Shakespeare in Love) as Hoover’s overprotective mother.

Review: J. Edgar Hoover was one of the most colorful figures in recent American political history.   This new biopic, directed by the legendarily dark director Clint Eastwood.  This film is moody, long and at times dry.  On the other hand, its also absolutely flawlessly presented and perfect for the subject matter.  DiCaprio delivers an amazing performance as Hoover and shows the multi-faceted character in his best and worst lights.  We highly recommend this one.

The special features on this blu-ray include: J Edgar: The Most Powerful Man in the World

Martha Marcy May Marlene Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: In her stunning feature film debut, Elizabeth Olsen delivers "an electrifying, star-is-born performance" (Rolling Stone) in this gripping psychological thriller that is "far and away one of the year's best" (Associated Press)! After escaping from a dangerous cult and the watchful eye of its charismatic leader (Academy Award(R) Nominee John Hawkes), a young woman named Martha (Olsen) tries to reclaim a normal life with her family. But the haunting memories from Martha's past trigger a chilling paranoia - and nowhere seems safe as the fragile line between her reality and delusions begin to blur.

Review: If you or someone that you love was exposed to life in a cult, how would the aftermath be?  How do you return to society after a traumatic experience?  This film introduces the youngest Olsen sister as the ex-victim of a disturbing cult.  The dual story shows her experiences in the cult and her recovery with her sister.  This one is rather emotional and definately a fantastic drama.

Pac-Man: The Complete First Season DVD Review

Synopsis: Pac-Man! The game that gobbled up a nation’s quarters while its hero gobbled up those annoying Ghost Monsters spawned sequels, spin-offs, toys, games and more. Taking note of Pac-Man’s avid fan base, famed carton studio Hanna-Barbera hit upon the idea of adapting the game for Saturday morning animation – becoming the first video game to make the jump to TV. Kids were immediately enraptured and a score of other arcade favorites soon followed Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Baby Pac-Man from the gaming console to the cathode ray tube. In this 2-Disc, 13-Episode collection, Pac-Man does battle with Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde and Sue, the Ghost Monster minions of the dreaded Mezmaron, who lusts after Pac-land’s precious power spheres. Aided by his plucky and charming wife and son, Pac-Man saves the Pac-President, confronts the vampiric Pacula, discovers the Abominable Pac-Man and more. Pac-Venture awaits – no quarters required

Review: Pac-Man was a HUGE character in his time.  He still lives on as the first symbol of the gaming era.  This cartoon, which lasted two seasons, gets a first season release from the Warner Archive.  Available only online, this great vintage animation series is the first Hanna-Barbera cartoon that was based on a video game.  The premise is simple. the Pac-Man family is in a constant feud with the ghost monsters.  Thats about it!  This one is fun and oh so vintage.  The picture quality is fantastic and its a treat to be able to watch this show for the first time in 30 years!   This one is a must-have for any gamer, fan of vintage animation or pop culture!

Joined by local military man Daniel Dembele, who is also searching for his son, both men join forces, all the while battling against the ever-present threat of the living dead!

Review: This one is touted as "the best zombie movie of the year".  How many zombie movies have really come out this year?  I know the genre has gotten all trendy.  In fact, its replaced vampires as the posh go-to monster.  Sigh.  Those of us that have been with zombies since back in the day will be able to appreciate the sheer monstrosity of the reality created within 'The Dead'.  This film takes a fresh angle at the epicdemic by exploring its ramifications in another part of the world, outside of the cityscape.  This one is a great watch for any fan.  The gore is there..the action is there...fun all around.

A&E s smash hit series is back with a vengeance continuing to dive into a world where Hollywood memorabilia and vintage guitars are just a small measure of the plunder to be found, a world where cash is king and winner takes all, where it s anyone s guess who will come out on top.

All Things Fall Apart Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) is a college running back with a fierce combination of blazing speed and stunning power. At the pinnacle of his college football career and gearing up to start a successful NFL one, life unexpectedly takes a turn and what was once easy and natural becomes unattainable. With his football career in serious jeopardy, Deon begins to realize a startling truth…he is not the man he thought he was. Equipped with this newfound information, Deon sets out to better himself by reuniting his family and picking up the pieces of his life. All Things Fall Apart is a triumphant and touching story about a man who loses everything, but gains the world. Also starring Lynn Whitfield, Mario Van Peebles and Ray Liotta.

Review: I don't often give credit to rappers turned actors.  They aren't much to write home about, lets be honest here.   One of the few exceptions seems to be Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.  I'm not a fan of his music or persona, but he certainly does a nice job of a jock hit like a bus with reality in "All Things Fall Apart".  Any fan of 50 will be excited to see him in such a serious film and non-believers will be delighted at how genuine of a performance he provides.  This one is a great watch.

Ocean Heaven Blu-Ray / DVD Combo Review



Synopsis: With the kind help of friends and neighbors, widower and aquarium worker Sam Wong (Jet Li) shares a contented life with his autistic 22-year-old son, David (Lunmei Kwai). That is until Sam learns that he has a terminal illness that will soon leave David orphaned. Now, the doting father begins a quest to ensure that his boy will be loved and cared for after his death. Xiao Lu Xue directs this touching drama.

Review: When American moviegoers think dramatic acting the first name that comes to mind isn't likely to be Jet Li.   One of the negatives about genre film is that we get to see one side of an actor.  Jackie Chan, for example, is a fantastic actor, but we only want to see him jumping around like a monkey.  The same could be said for Li.  Ocean Heaven is a fantastic example of just what Li has to offer as a serious actor.  This film, dealing with autism and the harsh realities that can come with it, is serious, touching and may enduce some teary eyes from time to time.  We do highly recommend checking it out.

The special features on this DVD include: Jet Li interview about Autism, Deleted Scenes, Photo Gallery and Trailers.
