Pink Floyd: The Story of Wish You Were Here Blu-ray Review

An excellent documentary on the difficulties in following up the classic Dark Side of the Moon with this subsequent classic, The Story of Wish You Were Here will be a must have for fans of “The Floyd”.

American Reunion Blu-ray Review

American Reunion Blu-ray Review

They’ve aged, and so have their gags, but not very well; as a result, American Reunion feels like a relic in comparison to some of the more recent shock comedies the franchise helped spawn.

Howl’s Moving Castle [UK] Blu-ray Review

There really is only one word to describe this film and this Blu-ray release from StudioCanal: magnificent. Hayao Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle is a joyous and inspirational fantasy adventure for family members of all ages.

The Decoy Bride Blu-ray Review

The Decoy Bride is funny, romantic, predictable and absolutely devoid of originality. If it weren’t for the charm of Kelly MacDonald and likeability of David Tennant, the film would fall flat.

Home on the Range Blu-ray Review

Watching this crude Disney dud with the razor-thin plot and Looney Tunes-like animation, I can easily see how Pixar took over their animation empire.

Treasure Planet: 10th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Review

Disney’s uneven animated sci-fi/fantasy adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel is nevertheless filled with strong animation that translates wonderfully in this impeccable Blu-ray edition from the studio.
