Right at Your Door (2007)
"By not hammering at the points that surface organically here, Gorak gets us to ask ourselves a lot of questions, for which there may not be any clear answers, even as we are engrossed with what's happening to the characters. The combination of these facto"
"Holy crap, has it really been 20 years since the debut of ROBOCOP? It's true and if that isn't depressing enough the special effects are pretty dated on this movie but with a new sleek digitally remastering of the film from the original source material."
House: Season Two (2006)
"The doctor is back in! Fox's hottest drama series makes its third season debut on DVD with 24 more episodes of Gregory House solving the oddest, strangest and deadliest medical cases known to mankind. "
"One of the most interesting premises to come to television in a while, an adult who was traumatized as a child is adopted by a police officer, but whose homicidal tendencies are just too strong to ignore. "
Death at a Funeral (2007)
"Part of the fun here is when we can guess what's coming, part of the fun is when we're blindsided, and all of the fun is in seeing how Oz, Craig and the perfectly chosen cast sail through it as though it's the most real ongoing situation ever."
The Invasion (2007)
"This is pretty much a straight up suspense film that is really well acted and executed. Nicole Kidman is brilliant as usual and handles the far-out subject matter of an alien invasion with the same class and grace that she showed in The Others."
"The special features on the DVD include the roughly 14-minute long "Spine Tingler" making of featurette that gives some great looks at the storyboards, directing style, how Mick Garris wanted to create a different type episode "
"This is a damn funny movie and the DVD is great as it gives so much more than what you usually get from DVDs. If you have seen the Adult Swim cartoon or even if you haven't this is worth checking out and you will enjoy it - just bring a sense of humor."
"Anchor Bay has once again released the original horror classic of John Carpenter's Halloween starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasence.This new edition also has a nifty new holofoil, dimensional sleeve that looks really sharp (no pun intended)"
"On LABYRINTH, the "Journey Through the Labyrinth" documentary is in two parts that include rediscovered footage, new interviews and much more, which is a cool addition to any fan of the film."
The Dark Crystal (1982)
"THE DARK CRYSTAL documentary, "The World of the Dark Crystal," also in two parts that includes rediscovered footage, new interviews and much more on the film."
Taxi Driver (1976)
"One of the great films from the 1970s has been re-released with a new digital transfer from the original source material for high quality video and audio."
"The 15 episodes from the first volume are all remastered and look crisp, clean and beautiful as they were taken from the original source negatives. Unfortunately, there aren't any special features included in volume one but hopefully they will remedy this "
Doctor Strange (2007)
"The updates on the characters' costumes are great. Strange has a really sleek look to his costume, and Dormammu is far more intimidating in his newest incarnation that does not have a pink and purple bodysuit."
Darkwing Duck - Vol. 2 (2007)
"Darkwing Duck stands the test of time and still is as fun to watch as it was when I was much younger. The humor runs that fine line between adult and child and more often than not is a little more advanced than you would expect to find on a kids' show. "
"There are times when Stardust feels a little confined, either due to Vaughn's liking of close shots or due to budget constraints. However, it is mostly a very pleasing fantasy, with conviction in its storytelling and a sense of magic in its heart."
Rush Hour 3 (2007)
"The trouble is, without at least character consistency, the set pieces are usually only good for a chuckle, if that, and when Ratner and Nathanson try for some John Woo-style dramatics, the results are flat."
"On the one hand,trying something new and the statement they want to make is laudable. However, the distanced style, hard grainy lighting and extremely lengthy rape sequences make Descent not only often unpalatable but also mostly just plain dull."
Muppet Show - Season Two (2007)
"The show has both a timeless and time capsule feel to it. The skits with the Muppets themselves don't really feel dated, but some of the material covered in satire and commentary on the world at large give the show a slice of history feel. "
Flash Gordon (1980)
"The best thing about this DVD release is the newly remastered digital transfer of the film from the original source material. The anamorphic widescreen is amazingly beautiful and the film has never looked better with all the scratches and dust marks remov"
Tick Vs. Season 2 (2007)
"The DVD includes a retrospective look at the film from "Re-Visitors From Outer Space or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Pod," new interviews with the cast and crew"
Bubba Ho-Tep (2003)
"Comedy at its very best is here and if you haven't seen or purchased the film yet, this is a great version to own with a new digital remaster and Elvis box cover."
Simpsons - Season 10 (2007)
"The special edition includes a brilliant new digital cut of the film, director audio commentary, deleted scenes and much more."
"The DVD includes all 10 episodes of the second season plus a ton of great special features such as five featurettes on the history of Rome as well as a making of the show, five audio commentaries and much more. An awesome DVD and a must have for fans. "
The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)
"Thanks to director Greengrass, editor Christopher Rouse and the very astute and adept actors and stunt performers, the hand-to-hand combat is almost shocking in its brutality. Even though blood is kept to a minimum, the sheer sense of violence, physical e"
20 Million Miles to Earth (1957)
"Ymir, again, is a marvelous creation with stop-motion animation and really shows off just how damn talented Harryhausen actually was. It is too bad that the film isn't nearly as good as the special effects."
Babylon 5: The Lost Tales (2007)
"This is actually two stories on one DVD that are both interconnected as the stars from the series must confront new enemies and new threats to the peace they have achieved. The DVD includes new interviews with the entire cast and Stracynski ..."
Space: 1999 - Set One (2001)
"Frank Miller's 300 proves you can still make awesome movies that have a ton of nasty, bloody violence, a good deal of nudity, adult themes and plenty of action and make it successful."
Popeye - V. 1 (1998)
"This isn't just a can of spinach here. This is finally the real deal, the original Max Fleischer POPEYE THE SAILOR cartoon digitally remastered from the original source material and luckily it isn't the craptacular colorized versions from Turner Classics."
Shadow Puppets (2007)
"SHADOW PUPPETS is a very impressive straight to DVD release that is much more entertaining than some of the schlock coming out in the theater."
"Because the DVD is from BCI, you can expect plenty of special features and, yes, there are plenty of spotlight interviews with the cast, audio commentaries, commercials and trailers, photo galleries and so much more. "
Todd McFarlane's Spawn (1997)
Weeds - Season 2 (2007)
"Showtime might have pulled ahead in the original series pay cable wars with DEXTER, MASTERS OF HORROR and, yes, WEEDS - the tale of a suburban mom who must turn to selling pot after her husband dies and leaves her with nothing. "
"The John Woo classic is back and with a great new digital transfer with the latest technology from the original source. Known as the film that changed action cinema forever, HARD BOILED is the story of a cop who goes after the scumbags that killed his par"
The Host (2007)
"Wonderfully shot, amazing in conception and powerful in its storyline - both in its monster goodness and governmental corruption back story - THE HOST is the best God damn modern monster movie in decades."
" I was completely charmed as Travolta shuffled across the screen and it was exceedingly easy to forget that he was really a man in a suit. He played the entire thing straight (no pun intended) and had no moments winking at the audience."
"The adrenaline surge is unquestionable, but it connects to the earlier part of the film at an odd angle, taking both the story and the tone in a somewhat new direction."
"This reviewer wouldn't dream of speaking for all women (or all of anybody else), but I and many of the other women I know do not equate being seen and approved of naked as having one's soul unveiled."
"The epic storyline is that of Shakespearian tragedy mixed with heartfelt emotion of our female protagonist, Nomi Malone, whose severe childhood depression has left her prone to violent outbursts and nonsensical catfights - usually without clothing."
Yo-Yo Girl Cop (2006)
"If you love anime and love the live-action aspect of some of the action titles coming out of Japan, YO-YO COP GIRL is for you, the story of a young woman who is coerced into going undercover in a high school in order to find out why a group of students ar"
The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007)
"The DVD also includes some great stuff on it such as an interesting alternate ending, some really good featurettes on making the mutants, the stars and more, an interview with Wes Craven, deleted scenes and much more."
