Well Go USA releases psycho-thriller Buster's Mal Heart this coming week and Sarah Adina Smith (GoodBye World) both directed and wrote the film.  Rami Malek (Mr. Robot; Twilight:  Breaking Dawn Part 2) and D.J. Qualls (Z Nation) star in the movie and the title surprises me because it seems to be a play on words- Mal meaning bad in Spanish... Read More

(Jennifer Broderick)  17/07/2017 16:27 EDT
Lionsgate has a history of making captivating films and Free Fire is no different.  With Executive Producer, Martin Scorsese one may expect The Godfather, but it isn't.  However, with a different genre of a shootout film, Scorsese and the other producers who worked on this film, make it work.  Clearly, the Scorsese influence is felt,...

CHiPs Blu-ray Review
CHiPs   CHiPs Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  23/06/2017 13:46 EDT
In 1977 Eric Estrada and Larry Wilcox were the "coolest cops" on television. CHiPs was a favorite for many and made stars out of the two young actors.  As with so many older things these days, an updated version of the show made its way to movie theaters this year and is now coming out on Blu-ray Combo pack. While nothing is usually ... Read More

"True love knows no bounds." It's a statement we hear often in the face of adversity when two people are supposedly "meant to be together".  They face insurmountable odds that have to be conquered in order to live "happily ever after". Usually, these type of stories are the relegated to the world of fantasy but ev... Read More

The Vampire Diaries Blu-ray Review
The Vampire Diaries Season 8   The Vampire Diaries Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  13/06/2017 08:43 EDT
Televisions shows don't always know when their run will end, so often seasons end with the all too familiar cliffhanger that sadly never gets resolved.  Occasionally, they find out before the finale is written so they can tie the series up in a nice little bow and not leave fans hanging.  Rarely does a show know it will end before the fir...
