Barbarella Blu-ray Review

Campy cult classic Barbarella, starring a young, sexy Jane Fonda, arrives on Blu-ray with the infamous title sequence, zero-gravity striptease now in pristine HD.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Blu-ray Review

While I didn’t find A Game of Shadows that great, I can’t deny that Robert Downey Jr. is just entertaining, as is Warner’s excellent Blu-ray for the film.

Seeking Justice Blu-ray Review

Nicolas Cage puts in an underwhelming performance in this crime thriller that is saved by Roger Donaldson’s direction and cast member Guy Pearce.

Sector 7 Blu-ray 3D Review

Sector 7 Blu-ray 3D Review

Despite a less than stellar 3D conversion, this Korean sc-fi thriller is a satisfying mix of Alien and The Host that sci-fi geeks are sure to appreciate. The 2D transfer and strong lossless 5.1 soundtrack more than compensate for the 3D’s shortcomings.

Man on a Ledge Blu-ray Review

Man on a Ledge Blu-ray Review

Aimed at your basic thrill seeker, Liosngate’s new Blu-ray, for Man on a Ledge, may fail as a film; however, on a technical level this is a pure winner.

Spider-Man 3 (w/UltraViolet) Blu-ray Review

Posted June 11th, 2012 by Brandon A. DuHamel

Spider-Man 3 (w/UltraViolet) Blu-ray Review

This Spider-Man 3 “reissue” from Sony is no more than the identical release minus the second disc of bonus features with new cover art and UltraViolet and a movie ticket offer included. On the positive side, since it is the same, the picture and sound are just as great.

This Means War Blu-ray Review

Posted June 10th, 2012 by Brandon A. DuHamel

This Means War Blu-ray Review

This Means War is a refreshingly original romantic comedy that is funny and should appeal to men and women alike.

Spider-Man 2 (w/UltraViolet) Blu-ray Review

Posted June 9th, 2012 by Brandon A. DuHamel

Spider-Man 2 (w/UltraViolet) Blu-ray Review

The angst, the humor, the comedy, and the special effects are all beefed up in Spider-Man 2, but nothing on this Blu-ray reissue really is, making a double-dip nowhere near worth it for anyone who already owns the original DVD.

Spider-Man (w/UltraViolet) Blu-ray Review

Posted June 8th, 2012 by Brandon A. DuHamel

Spider-Man (w/UltraViolet) Blu-ray Review

Sony’s reissue of the original Spider-Man movie doesn’t offer much new for those who already own the first Blu-ray release or original DVD, but if you’re new to Blu-ray (or Spider-Man) then definitely give this one a go.

The FP Blu-ray Review

The FP Blu-ray Review

The only thing this latest effort from golden boys Drafthouse Films is a parody of is itself — skip it.
