Tai Chi Zero Blu-ray Review

Tai Chi Zero Blu-ray Review

Tai Chi Zero from director Stephen Fung is a fun new twist on the martial arts genre. It mixes styles, infuses action with lots of comedy and a steam punk edge, and mostly, breathes new life into what can usually be rather predictable fare.

Lightning Bug Blu-ray Review

Hollywood B-movie makeup effects maven Robert Hall’s semi-autobiographical story about getting out of small town USA is a charming slice of life drama.

Love Me Blu-ray Review

This murder mystery/thriller is like an extended episode of a bad series from The CW network. Add this to the list of one of the worst entries from 2012.

The Possession Blu-ray Review

Clearly Lionsgate has provided us with a technically strong Blu-ray effort in The Possession; too bad the film isn’t anywhere near as strong.

Inventing David Geffen is an insightful look at the long and influential career of this entertainment industry magnate.

This unintentionally funny sci-fi actioner is in the running for being one of the worst movies of 2012.

Bryan Pezzone: Piano Pieces Blu-ray 3D Review

Pianist Bryan Pezzone puts on a virtuoso display of improvisation featuring original compositions and adds straight performances of Mozart, Schubert and Elgar works.

Persona 4: The Animation comes to a close with the strong second half in this second collection from Sentai Filmworks.

Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden Blu-ray Review

Posted January 12th, 2013 by Brandon A. DuHamel

Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden Blu-ray Review

A two-dimensional and inaccurate, video game-quality version of events leading up to the killing of Osama Bin Laden, this “docudrama” is a wasted effort.
