BREAKING BAD - THE FINAL SEASON Blu-ray | ©2014 Sony Pictures Entertainment

Stars: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk Suggested Retail Price:$65.99 Distributor: Sony Home Entertainment For years, critics and fans have been gushing about the brilliance of BREAKING BAD. And while it took me awhile to become a full convert, I have to say, the final eight episodes (technically the second half of Season 5) provided some of the best television last year. Creator Vince Gilligan did an amazing job of paying off EVERYTHING that he set into motion over the course of the series run. Walter White (Bryan Cranston) started off as …Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Iain De Caestecker, Alice Englert, Allen Leech Writer: Jeremy Lovering Director: Jeremy Lovering Distributor: Anchor Bay Films Blu-Ray/DVD/VOD Release Date: March 11, 2014 It’s hard to make any kind of a gripping movie with limited sets and very few cast members, but writer/director Jeremy Lovering succeeds with his debut feature, IN FEAR. Genre fans can relate elements of the scenario to a lot of other suspense/horror films, but IN FEAR works as an original, as well as an unexpectedly good character piece. Scotsman Tom (Iain De Caestecker) and English Lucy (Alice Englert) have only been dating for …Read On »

Cast: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Ed Harris Writer: Alfonso Cuarón, Jonás Cuarón Director: Alfonso Cuarón Distributor: Warner Home Video Just when you think that Hollywood has run out of ideas and everything is a remake or a retelling or a sequel or adaptation … OK, that’s actually the truth.

GRAVITY lives up to all the hype that it has been given in so many ways. The sheer scale of this film is …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: HALLOWEEN – 35th Anniversary Edition

HALLOWEEN - 35 Anniversary Edition Blu-ray | ©2013 Anchor Bay Entertainment

Stars: Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis, P.J. Souls, Nancy Loomis Writer: John Carpenter and Debra Hill Director: John Carpenter Release Date: September 24, 2013 Distributor: Anchor Bay Suggested Retail Price: $34.99  At this point, the big question is, do we need another HALLOWEEN special edition? Every five years, there’s a new anniversary edition, and while there are improvements each time, is it worth shelling out another $30 bucks to own it? For people who don’t love Carpenter’s original, I would say, it’s probably not, but for fans, each time it comes out, I can’t help but getting another copy for …Read On »
