Forced to Fight Blu-ray Review

Posted January 31st, 2013 by Brendan Surpless

Forced to Fight Blu-ray Review

Forced to Fight is entertaining and, surprisingly, thrilling at times – all thanks to a rather solid performance from Peter Weller.

Django [UK] Blu-ray Review

Django [UK] Blu-ray Review

One of the cult favorite spaghetti westerns, Sergio Carbucci’s Django is an energetic, violent, and gloriously boundary-pushing classic.

Piranha (1978) [UK] Blu-ray Review

Piranha (1978) [UK] Blu-ray Review

The 1978 original Roger Corman-produced Piranha is a campy bit of exploitation fun in the Jaws vernacular.

Won’t Back Down Blu-ray Review

Posted January 31st, 2013 by Brandon A. DuHamel

Won’t Back Down Blu-ray Review

Just like our nation’s public schools about which this film purports to be about, Won’t Back Down s a failure of a film at examining the real problems that plague the public educational system.

Tosh.0 Deep V’s Blu-ray Review

Tosh.0 Deep V’s Blu-ray Review

Tosh.0 is not for everyone, but if you find yourself routinely watching his weekly collection of skits, this Volume 2 just may warrant a spot in your collection.

Osombie Blu-ray Review

Posted January 30th, 2013 by Brendan Surpless

Osombie Blu-ray Review

Osombie is way over-the-top at times, but is still semi-entertaining for a ‘shut your brain’ off afternoon. If you have nothing better to watch, then give this one a spin for some mindless entertainment.

Bruckner: The Mature Symphonies: Symphony No. 4 [Staatskapelle Berlin/Barenboim] Blu-ray Review

Daniel Barenboim leads a powerful rendition of Bruckner’s popular Symphony No.4 from Berlin. A well recorded performance that delivers the full measure of romanticism.

Verdi: Alzira [Orchestra Hayden di Bolzano e Trento] Blu-ray Review

Verdi: Alzira [Orchestra Hayden di Bolzano e Trento] Blu-ray Review

Alzira, a rarely heard early Verdi opera, receives its Blu-ray premiere with this concert performance from C Major. Uneven singing and the lack of staged drama undermine the impact of this production.

Verdi: I Masnadieri [Teatro di San Carlo] Blu-ray Review

Posted January 30th, 2013 by Lawrence D. Devoe, MD

Verdi: I Masnadieri [Teatro di San Carlo] Blu-ray Review

A real rarity, Verdi’s I Masnadieri presents a strong score well handled by cast and orchestra in this performance from the Teatro di San Carlo. The only snag in an otherwise worthy production is the bizarre staging and costume design.

All Superheroes Must Die Blu-ray Review

This low budget superhero thriller lacks the punch to make it an interesting watch.
