Blu-ray Review “Supernatural: The Complete Eleventh Season”

“Supernatural” is quite a marvel in terms of television that is going on 12 seasons now and honestly shows no end in sight.

Blu-ray Review “The Neon Demon”

I found myself holding my breath and unable to look away at this marvel! If you enjoy something that isn’t a sequel or remake/reboot, this is a must see!

The visual effects on this film were simply amazing. I LOVED the 3D effects, in fact they were the best that I have seen in a movie since “Edge of Tomorrow” with Tom Cruise

Blu-ray Review “Now You See Me 2”

“Now You See Me” was a good film…but it was not a film that was asking for sequel in any way. The only thing that the unnecessary sequel does is enlarge its cast.

Blu-ray Review “Equals”

When I started watching “Equals”, I got very excited because it has this really cool futuristic feel to it that I was digging. Unfortunately by the end it wasn’t able to hang on tightly to that vibe and ended up feeling very generic and forgettable.

he best part of the season was the return of Ahsoka Tano, Darth Maul and introduction of… Darth Vader.

I have been a hardcore “Castle” fan since the very first episode. It is really hard for me to close the book on this series with “The Complete Eight and Final Season”.

The season is jam packed with enough amazing fanboy head explosion moments to satisfy any hardcore fan.

Blu-ray Review “Clown”

Probably recommend skipping this and watching “Stephen King’s IT”.

DVD Reviews “Power Rangers Megaforce & Power Rangers Super Megaforce: The Complete Seasons”

Personally, I haven’t watched “Power Rangers” in a long time but watching these parts of this season I was easy drawn back in

Blu-ray Review “11.22.63”

“11.22.63” is a great Stephen King novel, which was ruined in it’s TV expansion by casting James Franco as the star.

A triumph on all levels, the film’s strongest point is it’s cast

A must for any fan of “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” and Halloween.

If you are a hardcore Beach Boys fan, check it out for sure

Blu-ray Review “Big Game”

A straightforward tribute to 80s/90s adventure movies

DVD Review “Castle: The Complete Seventh Season”

I just love how this show was developed over the years and never ceases to include non-stop laughs as well as very intense drama.

Blu-ray Review “The Age of Adaline”

This season is a big one for the show those since it is the final season with Nina Dobrev

Blu-ray Review “The Originals: The Complete Second Season”

I am not sure if I plan to continue watching “The Originals”, this season didn’t really win me over

Blu-ray Review “Once Upon a Time: The Complete Fourth Season”

“Once Upon a Time” is a show that has been better with each season

Blu-ray Review “Adventure Time: The Complete Fifth Season”

“Adventure Time” continues to be one of my favorite shows on Cartoon Network.

Digital HD Review “Veep: Season 4”

This show has been developed so well over its run and in it’s fourth season it is the best that it has been to date.

Blu-ray Review “Hot Pursuit”

Even running less than 90 minutes, this film is painful to watch

Blu-ray Review “The Divergent Series: Insurgent”

Even though the film is not great, the Blu-ray is very impressive

Blu-ray Review “Walt Disney Animation Studios Shorts Collection”

I can easily watch this shorts over and over.

DVD Review “Descendants”

My daughter has not stopped singing “Evil Like Me” since watching it. Highly recommended for Disney families.

DVD Review “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.: The Complete First Season”

This is a great way to get introduced or refreshed on the series that inspired the upcoming movie.

DVD Review “Lake Placid vs. Anaconda”

They are definitely cheesy and nothing special but all in all they are fun

Blu-ray Review “Scooby-Doo! And KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery”

Features six classic KISS songs and most importantly an all new original song from the band just for this film.

Blu-ray Review “Justice League: Gods and Monsters”

“Justice League: Gods and Monsters” features a super cool alternate universe where Superman is the son of Zod. Batman is actually Man-Bat and Wonder Woman is the, God of War, Princess Bekka.

Digital HD Review “Silicon Valley: Season 2”

Season 2 didn’t just improve on the first it trumped it

Blu-ray Review: “What We Do in the Shadows”

A vampire comedy that works on every level and a welcome return to the sensibilities that I loved so much in “Flight of the Conchords”.

DVD Review “Sesame Street: Count on Elmo”

“Count on Elmo” is a great learning tool to aid kids in their process of getting to know their numbers.

Blu-ray Review “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2”

“Paul Blart: Mall Cop” was a decent film at best but it is film that never warranted a sequel.

DVD Review “Awaken”

There’s a lot that “Awaken” does wrong, that’s very obvious from the first half of the movie, but this disjointed hodgepodge has a campy charm.

Blu-ray Review “A MusiCares Tribute to Carole King”

“A MusiCares Tribute to Carole King” is the film presentation of those performances which in include appearance by LeAnn Rimes, Gloria Estefan, James Taylor and Lady Gaga just to name a few

Blu-ray Review “The Decline of Western Civilization Collection”

Fans of both music and gritty documentaries will certainly want to check out this release

DVD Review “Debug”

Blu-ray Review “Time Lapse”

“Time Lapse” is a really neat sci-fi horror thriller with a cool time travel angle twisted in

Blu-ray Review “The Cat Returns”

The film featured a fantastic US voice cast including Anne Hathaway, Cary Elwes, Tim Curry, and Elliott Gould.

Blu-ray Review “Spirited Away”

“Spirited Away” is one of my all-time favorite films

Blu-ray Review “Unfinished Business”

This should have been called “Unfunny Business” since there wasn’t a single joke in the entire film that I even cracked a smile for

Blu-ray Review “Kingsman: The Secret Service”

One of the best surprises I have seen so far this year, don’t miss it.

Blu-ray/CD Review “Melissa Etheridge: A Little Bit of Me: Live In L.A.”

With Etheridge’s last live release clocking in at over 2 hrs. and packed with bonus footage there was certainly something’s left to be desired.

“Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Series” is bringing this show to Blu-ray with all previously released extras and also an exclusive disc packed with additional never-before-seen content.

Easily ranks as one of the best original drama series produced by HBO

“Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” has always been one of my favorite shows to watch with my daughter ever since she was born

3D Blu-ray Review “Jupiter Ascending 3D”

Maybe a little too ambitious but still a really cool looking flick and entertaining flick

Blu-ray Review “Focus”

Will Smith really hasn’t delivered box office gold recently after “Men in Black 3” and “After Earth”, unfortunately “Focus” isn’t the winner that we were all hoping for either.

DVD Review “Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Best in Show”

My daughter is in love with this show and rocks out totally to this series’ opening song

Digital HD Review “The Pyramid”

The ending was actually not expected but also at the same time a little over-the-top
