New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 2/13

THE DEUCE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON | © 2018 HBO Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. THE DEUCE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON HBO is taking on some interesting projects in light of having only a few heavy hitters left in its arsenal and THE DEUCE won’t appeal to those that are expecting the next SOPRANOS or GAME OF THRONES or DEADWOOD or TRUE BLOOD but it is an interesting series that is a throwback to a time when New York City was at its sleaziest filled with peep shows, brothels and street walkers. The series follows a number of pimps, prostitutes, the mob […]Read On »

New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 1/23

GEOSTORM | © 2018 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. GEOSTORM GEOSTORM is universally panned as being down-right awful because of its nonsensical plot and CGI extravaganza that rivals JUPITER ASCENDING. More than that, it is downright preachy in its calls that pretty darn soon the Earth is gonna start hating humans and wiping them off the planet with a series of catastrophic disasters that can’t be stopped. Now, don’t get me wrong when I say this that yes it is nonsensical, yes it is preachy and yes it is a CGI fest, however, maybe because my […]Read On »

HEAT: DIRECTOR’S DEFINITION EDITION highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for May 9, 2017

HEAT | © 2017 Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week (or perhaps a week ago). HEAT: DIRECTOR’S DEFINITIVE EDITION There are a few movies that just do it for me. RONIN is one because I love the mash-up for characters all doing shady dealings in Europe. HEAT is one of Michael Mann’s best work because it has multiple players doing a variety of heinous crimes and brings together two actors that were (at the time) the top of their game in Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. Now, how both of these actors perform today is an […]Read On »

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. Catching up on many of the titles that I missed while being sick … plus new stuff that arrived.

While most Disney animated titles are usually beautiful, MOANA is that much more because of the great variety of colors from the clear blue ocean to the vivid […]Read On »

DEEPWATER HORIZON highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Jan. 10, 2017

DEEPWATER HORIZON | © 2017 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

  Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. DEEPWATER HORIZON – A pretty good action thriller about the well-publicized explosion that happened on a deep sea oil rig known as Deepwater Horizon. Led by an impressive cast including Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich and Kurt Russell, it does a good job of balancing the action with how the oil companies treat their employees and their property and how it really is about the bottom line. But it also does a good job of tackling the human spirit and how people can do incredible things and […]Read On »

WARCRAFT highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Sept. 27, 2016

WARCRAFT | © 2016 Universal Home Entertainment

  Movies: WARCRAFT – When a movie gets so universally panned by critics and fans alike, you go into it with very low expectations. That probably helped in my viewing of WARCRAFT because shockingly I actually found it not half bad. Yeah, the plot is basic and rambling with dialog and nonsensical elements along with literally nothing being explained other than bad orcs, good humans. But the special effects, which looked atrocious in the trailers, holds up alright and the action sequences are pretty good and at times brutal. But something had to make this become the highest grossing video […]Read On »
