Blood & Chocolate (BLU-RAY)

So, another BD featuring a questionable movie.  This team first brought you Underworld, then The Covenant and now Blood & Chocolate.  I think it is without question that the appeal of their movies are steadily going downhill.  Underworld was very enjoyable, The Covenant had it’s enjoyable asp...

Cruel Intentions (BLU-RAY)

Cruel Intentions may not be an Oscar-winning movie, but it surely helped launch the careers or a few Oscar winners and nominees in the former couple Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe.  The movie is moving and twisted at the same time, a diamond in the rough in the teen exploitation films of th...

Primeval (BLU-RAY)

If Buena Vista wasn’t releasing all of their new feature films on Blu-Ray at the same time as DVD, I would strongly wonder what their intentions are for releasing Primeval in a format that is just plain too good for the movie.  This cheesy telling of a story “inspired” by true events is possibly ...

Ghost Rider (BLU-RAY)

So I didn’t expect much of this movie and thank God I didn’t.  Ghost Rider is no Batman, it’s not even a Hellboy.  Hell, it’s not even Fantastic Four.  This is easily a movie that would have been a small release were it not for Nicolas Cage’s desperate need to be in a superhero movie (especially ...

Seven Years in Tibet (BLU-RAY)

I was never really a big fan of this movie when it first came out.  I was, of course, 16 when it first came out and didn’t really fully comprehend the intricacies of the film and the deep political meanings.  After watching it again, I still think it is a little on the boring side and seems to cl...

Hellboy (BLU-RAY)

Hellboy is one of those movies that come along every few years that isn’t bad but isn’t great.  It’s pure fun and entertainment, nothing else and it doesn’t try to be anything else.  The special effects, prosthetics and everything in between is surprisingly brilliant.... Read more

The Messengers (BLU-RAY)

The Messengers is something of a mix between Cold Creek Manor and Stir of Echoes but without the star-power of the former and the tense originality of the latter.  Despite having B-actor heavyweights Dylan McDermott and John Corbett, the best actor(s) ends up, surprisingly, being twin 5-year olds...

Curse of the Golden Flower (BLU-RAY)

If you are getting sick of the “beautiful, gravity-defying” asian martial arts masterpieces, then wait a little bit before you get too sick of it and give Curse of the Golden Flower a chance.  Living legend Chow Yun Fat and the beautiful Gong Li star in this romantic near-masterpiece.... Read more

Apocalypto (BLU-RAY)

It is usually a given that, for some reason, movies that have a lot bad personal buzz before its release end up being bad movies themselves (see Georgia Rule and Gigli).  Somehow, Apocalypto escaped that fate.  Although the movie didn’t perform all that well in theatres, it definitely shines as a...

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (BLU-RAY)

The Curse of the Black Pearl may be the movie that started it all but this is the movie that nearly killed it all.  After the enormous success of the hugely entertaining first film, Dead Man’s Chest came in as the redheaded stepchild and ultimately wound up confusing and utterly disappointing....
