Howl’s Moving Castle Blu-ray Review

Hayao Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle is a joyous and inspirational fantasy adventure for family members of all ages and Disney’s Blu-ray release is pure reference quality eye and ear candy from start to finish.

Earth’s Final Hours Blu-ray Review

While Anchor Bay’s Blu-ray is solid, SyFy’s Earth’s Final Hours just isn’t worth your time.

Tenchi Muyo!: War on Geminar Part 2 Blu-ray Review

This entry in the Tenchi Muyo! universe wraps up with an equally disappointing video transfer and ramped up mecha action that feels borrowed from other franchises.

Tenchi Muyo!: War on Geminar: Part 1 (LE) Blu-ray Review

Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar reminds fans of the best of the early years of this franchise, even if this transfer to Blu-ray isn’t so great.

Gamer Blu-ray 3D Review

Gamer is an absolute disaster of a film; an exercise in excess, silliness, and, ironically, one-dimensional characters.

Thale Blu-ray Review

Thale is a fairly well executed Norwegian fantasy-thriller based in old Nordic folklore that is at least worthy of a rental for fans of the genre.

Scanners III: The Takeover [UK] Blu-ray Review

A wholly unnecessary wrap up to the Scanners franchise, Scanners III arrives on Blu-ray with a poor transfer worthy of the poor quality of the film itself.

Scanners II: The New Order [UK] Blu-ray Review

Scanners II: The New Order [UK] Blu-ray Review

A disappointing sequel to David Cronenberg’s cult classic is offered up on Blu-ray with a middling transfer from Second Sight Films.

Scanners (Limited Edition Steelbook) [UK] Blu-ray Review

Scanners (Limited Edition Steelbook) [UK] Blu-ray Review

David Cronenberg’s cult classic Scanners gets a strong Steelbook release from Second Sight. The riveting, visually stunning sci-fi horror story straddles the line between 70s grit and 80s gloss, is over-the-top, visceral, and addictive in its paranoia.

Storage 24 Blu-ray Review

While over-the-top at times, Magnolia’s Storage 24 is still entertaining enough to warrant a viewing.
