Black Lightning Blu-ray Review
Black Lightning: The Complete First Season   Black Lightning Blu-ray Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  05/07/2018 10:34 EDT
You just can't keep a good Superhero "verse" down. In 2018 The CW expanded their "DCverse" with Black Lightning - the story of Jefferson Pierce, a high school principal, and father of two who has a very big secret. It just completed its first season run on the CW on April 17, and now Warner Bros. has released a 2-disc Blu-ra... Read More

Fury, released in 2014, takes place in 1945 and tells the story of a group of men who are the crew members of an  M4 Sherman "Easy Eight" tank, which they have nicknamed "Fury". We follow this tight-knit group of men throughout their mission as they struggle to make their way through Nazi Germany. Now, you can watch this ep... Read More

"Mr. Grey will see you now"…six simple words that launched a global phenomenon and ushered in a new era of "soccer mom porn".  The series of films based on the book trilogy sparked the imaginations of women worldwide and gave them a new fantasy to dream about. It opened up a new sexual world for many and made BDSM a ... Read More

In 1995, Robin Williams starred in Jumanji, bringing us a funny, yet touching, film about a boy who gets trapped inside an old board game. Fast forward 22 years to 2017 and Jumanji was brought back to life, this time as an antiquated video game in  Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. A group of four high schoolers, Spencer... Read More

The Dark Crystal 4K Ultra HD Review
The Dark Crystal   The Dark Crystal 4K Ultra HD Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  06/03/2018 09:20 EDT
Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal was released in 1982 and became a staple of many 1980's kids' film experiences. The film, while geared towards children, wasn't a typical fluff piece that the 1980s family/children film genre can be guilty of. Through it, we were introduced to a whole new world of characters that have endured in our hea... Read More

Homeland Blu-ray Review
Homeland: The Complete Sixth Season   Homeland Blu-ray Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  19/02/2018 15:36 EDT
From the beginning, Homeland has pulled viewers in with its intense storytelling and the ability to surprise viewers at any turn. From the romance and drama between Carrie Mathison and Nicholas Brody (and to his eventual demise) to the life-changing directions Danes' character has taken both personally and professionally, viewers have...

Family Guy DVD Review
The Complete Fourteenth Season   Family Guy DVD Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  19/12/2016 11:10 EDT
Seth MacFaralane's Family Guy has seen a monumental amount of success. This show, as a whole, is beyond clever and bordering on genius. Some may think that my use of that word is a bit much, but I disagree. The intelligent and funny scripts intertwined with hysterical cutaways are what truly makes this show stand out among other adult-oriented ... Read More

Jason Bourne 4K Ultra HD Review

Jason Bourne marks the return of Matt Damon to the Bourne franchise, from which he was absent from for 9 years. Fans clamored to see Damon reprise the role that he made famous and this return was just what the franchise needed - some "new" life breathed into it.When we meet up with him again we see Jason Bourne living off the grid but not...

Criminal, the thriller film starring Kevin Costner and Ryan Reynolds, is out on shelves this week on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD.The film, which also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Gary Oldman, and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) seems like it should be amazing given the cast. But what really has occurred here is a bit of a disappointment. William "Bil... Read More

Code of Honor Blu-ray Review
Code of Honor   Code of Honor Blu-ray Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  05/07/2016 16:32 EDT
At one point in time Steven Seagal (Above The Law, Under Siege) was considered a true Hollywood bad-ass.  Well, those days are long gone, but Seagal continues to make films that only his younger self could pull off.Code of Honor stars Seagal as Robert Sikes, a former special-ops operative, who, after his family is killed in a drive-by shooting...
