Scooby-Doo: Wrestlemania Mystery Blu-Ray / DVD Review



Synopsis: When Shaggy and Scooby win tickets to WrestleMania, the entire gang travels in the Mystery Machine to WWE City to attend the epic event. However, when a mysterious ghostly bear appears and threatens to ruin the show, Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred work with WWE Superstars to solve the case.

Review: I'm a self admitted huge fan of wrestling.  I watch the WWE programming twice a week and all the pay-per-views.  I even subscribe to their new WWE Network!  When I saw that they were creating an animated feature in conjunction with one of my favorite all time cartoon characters, Scooby-Doo, I was psyched.  My kids don't watch wrestling a lot and this was a great way to introduce them to the characters.  My four year old now knows who John Cena, the Miz, HHH and Kane are.  He especially is a little fan of Kane and Sin Cara now!  All three of my kids beyond loved this feature, ages four to eleven, and I thought it was fun too.  We all had a blast watching this one, and I'm certain your family will too!

Devious Maids: Season One DVD Review



Synopsis: Sex. Lies. Murder.It's all in a day's work. From Executive Producer Marc Cherry, creator of Desperate Housewives, comes Devious Maids: The Complete First Season. Meet five women bonded together by their jobs, their dreams and the dirt they sweep under the rug: Aspiring singer Carmen; Rosie, who longs to be reunited with the child she left back in Mexico; Marisol, whose outward identity masks a desperate hidden agenda; and Zoila and her daughter Valentina - both employed by the delightfully unhinged Genevieve Delatour (Susan Lucci). Before the season is over, illicit affairs will be revealed and depraved secrets exposed, as we learn the sordid details behind a shocking murder. Start your collection with all 13 addictive episodes plus "sin-tillating" bonus features, and relive the intrigue as murder, mystery and mayhem collide amongst the mansions of Beverly Hills!

Review: This show, at first glance, is a lot like Desperate Housewives with a cast of gorgeous maids.  The show, honestly, could be described that way without insult.  This one penetrates the world of the rich and supposedly fabulous and brings to light the real issues behind the scenes in their no so perfect lives.  The cast is absolutely fantastic and this show never disappoints with the drama.   This is a great one to dig into and binge watch!

Walking With Dinosaurs (Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack) Review


Synopsis: The gigantic voice talents of Justin Long (ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS franchise) and John Leguizamo (ICE AGE franchise) take you on a thrilling prehistoric journey the whole family will enjoy! In a time when dinosaurs rule the Earth, the smallest of the pack -- a playful Pachyrhinosaurus named Patchi -- embarks on the biggest adventure of his life. As he tries to find his place in a spectacular world filled with fun-loving friends and a few dangerous foes, Patchi will discover the courage he needs to become the leader of the herd and a hero for the ages.

Review: This film has a few things going for it.  Firstly, the graphics are outstanding.  This is easily the most realistic depiction of the dinosaurs I've seen.  Beyond that, this one is great for the kids.  The humor is a bit juvenille at times, but thats to be expected.  My kids laughed almost nonstop and they're ages four to eleven.   This one was a great watch and a nice, safe family view.  We definately recommend.

Review: Its our worst fear realized.  There are a lot of movies about epidemics, from viral to zombie, but this South Korean epic is one of the best  orchestrated that I've seen!  The avian flu is spreading like wild fire and killing people left and right.  The government is taking drastic measures to try and contain it, but its not going well.  The people are desperate, the setting is apocalyptic.  This is a great watched, FYI it is dubbed over in English.

Winnie the Pooh Springtime With Roo Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Each year, Rabbit plays Easter Bunny, but this year, he's decided it's "Spring Cleaning Day," and he orders everyone to hop to it: scrubbing, dusting, and mopping. All his pals are disappointed - especially little Roo - until Rabbit learns that putting others first and showing friends how much you care turns every day into a precious gift. Sparkling with unforgettable songs and never-before-seen bonus treat, this delightful "egg-stravaganza" shows why love, hope and friendship are always in full bloom in the Hundred Acre Wood!

Review:  I have been an avid fan of Winnie the Pooh ever since I can remember.  I passed my love of the characters onto my own kids and we enjoy watching any Pooh release as a family.  Springtime with Roo isn't a new release, but its the fist time we're getting it on blu-ray.  This film is absoutely enchanting and so much fun.  The Hippity Hoppity Roo Edition is a fantastic blu-ray release, which also gives a packed-in treat of a Roo Mobile, which my kids absolutely love!  Also, there are bonus music videos of the songs from the film to dance to.  This one is priceless for any family and a fun way to usher in Spring!

Legit: The Complete First Season Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: This outrageous new comedy stars Australian Jim Jefferies as an edgy, foul-mouthed stand-up comic living in Los Angeles, struggling to make his life and career more "legit." But every time Jim tries to do the right thing, his good deeds turn into wildly inappropriate and utterly hilarious escapades. Joined by his neurotic best friend and roommate, Steve, and Steve's wheelchair-bound brother, Billy, Jim takes comedy to a whole new level, whether it's visiting a Las Vegas brothel, partying with the mentally-challenged or trying to pick up women at a gay bar.

Review: I watch a lot of stand-up comedy specials, not only for review, but also for fun.  I had seen a Jim Jefferies special awhile back and it was alright, but not hilarious, in my opinion.  Then, I see that he has his own show on FX, Legit.  My wife wanted to watch it more than me, but I gave it a chance for her and boy am I glad that I did!  Legit is outright one of the most hilarious dark comedies I've ever seen.  This show is inappropriate on so many levels, without going over the top or ceasing to take itself seriously.   This show is completely inappropriate for children or anyone that is sensitive to race, handicap or other special needs.  If you can take a serious and hearty dark joke...this one is for you!

Ancient Aliens: Season 5 Vol 2 DVD Review



Synopsis: ANCIENT ALIENSr: SEASON 5, VOLUME 2 from HISTORYr investigates the topic from many angles. "Emperors, Kings and Pharaohs" explores whether ancient leaders, usually attributed with divine powers, were actually connected to extraterrestrial forces. "Alien Operations" examines advanced medical procedures practiced in the ancient world, as evidenced by wall carvings and skeletal remains. Did these skills come from an otherworldly source? Archaeologists ponder the healing power of ancient objects like sacred bones in "Mysterious Relics" and luminous, skull-shaped crystals in "The Crystal Skulls." Do these controversial artifacts hold the secrets to the universe? And were giant-winged deities known as Anunnaki responsible for ancient Sumerian leaps in advancement? 

Find out in "The Anunnaki Connection." This provocative collection also includes "The Satan Conspiracy," "The Power of Three" and "The Magic of the Gods.

Review: Ancient Aliens is one of the most unique shows on television and it airs on the History Channel.  This DVD release represents the second part of the fifth season.  I found quite a few of these episodes interesting, but particularly the one regarding the Anunnaki.  This series just keeps getting better and better as they unearth more theories and possibilities.  Its a lot of fun.

Review:The History Channel has some of the best programming on television.  This six episode series examined the validity and historical evidence around the writing and creation of the bible.  This is an absolutely fascinating special, whether you are religious or non-religious, its worth checking out.  They do a good job of trying to stick to facts and not pandering to either camp.

The Last Days on Mars Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: On the eve that the crew of the very first manned expedition to Mars is about to return to Earth, it makes an astounding discovery fossilized evidence of life on Mars. Oscar® nominated and visionary filmmaker RuairĂ­ Robinson, along with an extraordinary special effects team including the people behind DISTRICT 9, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and AVATAR, introduce us to a terrifying new landscape, where the scientific discovery of life might be the death of us all.

Review:  There are few science fiction movies that catch me off guard..but this one did the trick!  I gave it a chance, because I find Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan, Wolverine) to be a fantastic actor.  This one was a little crazy, but it was a fun ride.  It centers around some astraunauts on Mars and a last minute discovery that leads to total zombie mayhem.  Thats right..zombies on Mars!
