Over the years, we have seen so many iterations of Batman. From the original comics to a campy 1960s TV show and then to the big screen with a whimsical take on the character in the 1989 film starring Michael Keaton to a more dramatic take with the newer films starring Christian Bale and Ben Affleck. However, in 1992, we also saw a new animated ser... Read More

Jim Henson was a master of his craft. Not only did he give us The Muppets but he brought us the beloved series, Fraggle Rock as well. The show debuted in 1983 on HBO in the US (other stations internationally). The series became a hit with kids and continued for four seasons, with the last season airing until March of 1987. Now, those of us who grew... Read More

Dwayne Johnson (The Fate of The Furious) has certainly come a long way in his career. Not only has he proven himself to be good at comedy but also has also stuck with his biggest strength - action films. His larger than life persona makes him the perfect guy for these types of roles, and Skyscraper is no exception.The film featu... Read More

Black Lightning Blu-ray Review

(Maureen Buccellato)  05/07/2018 10:34 EST
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

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 EST
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 EST
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
