Extraordinary Measures (2010)
"Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford star in a pretty good fact-based drama in the same medical subgenre as LORENZO'S OIL"
"Paul Bettany is a de-winged angel and Dennis Quaid is a rural business owner in this up-and-down riff on subject matter covered in PROPHECY, TERMINATOR and SUPERNATURAL (to name a few precedents), mostly confined to a diner"
Happy Birthday to Me (1981)
"The only thing enjoyable about this re-released slasher is the unique deaths (but hey, at least the original score is restored)"
"The second best later FRIDAY films features psychic Tina who gives old hockey mask a run for his money"
" Because if you are a parent, you know you'd do anything for your children. But what happens when your own kid wants your blood? It is the ultimate nightmare and totally brutal in every way. And if you are indeed a parent, it is a frightening, sad and ter"
"A clan of nomads with the taste for human flesh and the abduction of babies. They stalk those in the remote beach side locations and it is up to a sheriff and some cops to stop them before they massacre two entire families. It is brutal and different and"
The Thaw (2009)
"This one is also just so-so as we are introduced to a prehistoric parasite that feeds on flesh and lays eggs inside of creatures in order to breed more. Some nasty scenes but overall merely OK."
Big Trouble in Little China (1986)
"For BIG TROUBLE fans this is the version to get. High def cut, new material never before seen on any version and new extras. Plus, the cool menus and ability to watch stuff while watching the movie make it all more better. For BIG TROUBLE fans this is the"
I Sell the Dead (2008)
"We're in a land of shadows, claws and wry observation, and for those who adore this sort of thing, I SELL THE DEAD is a rare treat."
A Perfect Getaway (2009)
"Timothy Olyphant, Milla Jovovich, Kiele Sanchez and Steve Zahn topline a playful take on the psycho killer couple thriller"
Ed Brubaker's Angel of Death (2009)
"Ed Brubaker's first screenplay takes us to the world of hitmen, scumbags and marks in brutal, glorious fashion"
Streets of Blood (2009)
"A convoluted, fast-paced action flick where everyone in New Orleans is dirty and killing everyone in sight"
Dollhouse - Season 1 (2009)
"If you are aware of the unaired season finale that was supposedly going to change the entire series in a big way, the second season may be not worth missing at all. Plus, the buzz the series has gotten given the DVD arrival and more may propel the series "
Life on Mars - Series 1 (2008)
"The original is so much better than the U.S. remake even if the American version had bigger stars. The plotline is much better and the acting so much better. Plus, it doesn't just try to be an ordinary cop show, unlike the remake. "
Green Lantern: First Flight (2009)
"This is how a DVD should be. Jam-packed with extras, a digital copy and a feature-length film that sets up what could be a new franchise for DC and Warner Home Video"
"The Deluxe Edition looks awesome and new special features are great too, but the whole movie and its shift to an immortal Jason just ruins everything."
"The Blu-ray version of SPACEBALLS offers up some odd commentaries in the special features that fit in perfectly with Mel Brook's STAR WARS' parody."
"The newly released Deluxe Edition offers some great new special features, an excellent remastering to an underrated film in the series."
"Deluxe Edition of the DVD is saved by awesome special features and special effects. Too bad the plot isn't better. But the DVD itself is great for the other elements."
The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009)
"THE TAKING OF PELHAM 123 is solid action thriller filmmaking with some real thrills and strong character work. Viewers will come away mostly fulfilled, though perhaps wishing the train had gone the extra half-mile for its climax."
"The Ultimate Collector's Edition includes two extra hours of rare performances with 18 new songs by 13 different bands - The Grateful Dead, The Who, Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Joe Cocker and more - some of which never appeared in the film originally (al"
Reaper - Season 2 (2009)
X-Men Origins - Wolverine (2009)
"Egads! One of the worst comic book movie adaptations, since, well PUNISHER: WAR ZONE"
Laid to Rest (2009)
"Why is he killing a slew of chicks and storing them in coffins? And why is after one girl in particular that can't remember her past? Hell, who cares as long as the blood and body parts keep flying."
Hellraiser Box Set (2009)
"This limited edition not only includes the original HELLRAISER but the newly released special edition of HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II. But it gets better, they also threw in the Blu-ray version of the original HELLRAISER "
"Here's what we get with CAPRICA: Multiple scenes inside a virtual rave, the fact that the mafia still exists even in highly advanced societies, rich guys like to push the non-rich around, a bunch of snotty kids that disrespect their parents, one real anno "
Feast 3: The Happy Finish (2009)
"A definitely more enjoyable experience than the horrible, craptacular part two but nowhere near as clever and fun as the first movie and the lack of special features that just ruins the overall DVD."
Friday the 13th (2009)
"It's not that the new FRIDAY THE 13TH is bad. It just doesn't feel new, and yet doesn't deliver the old shocks with the zest of horrific discovery that made the original and its better follow-ups so iconic."
The International (2009)
"Because banks all over the world are in such turmoil now, THE INTERNATIONAL seems dated by six months to a year. However, if you like watching law enforcement personnel working on a big, non-standard crime, this is pretty good."
Boogeyman 3 (2008)
"Well, if you are really desperate for a horror movie -BOOGEYMAN 3 is the one to look for. If there is something else on the shelves or at Netflix that looks or seems better - anything at all - check that out instead."
Against the Dark (2009)
"It isn't bad, but for Seagal fans they may find it lacking and horror fans may find it a bit too action oriented rather than horror oriented."
My Name Is Bruce (2007)
"It's cheap and it is a must have for Campbell fans as it is hilarious and fun and just what you would expect from a Bruce Campbell book adaptation."
Freakdog (Red Mist) (2009)
"RED MIST will really appeal to hottie Arielle Kebbel fans as she dominates virtually every inch of film here (including a nice bra and panties scene) as the protagonist good girl medical student that injects the poor taken advantage of student..."
Fritt vilt (Cold Prey) (2006)
"A slick horror film with some brutal deaths and in a unique, different environment."
Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982)
"Obviously, first time in 3D is cool and the digital cut while better, still lacks some serious crystal clear and clean print. Plus, no special features?"
Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)
"A slasher that takes its time with most of the kills, has some good frights, a new digital cut and provides a host of cool, new special features. What's not to like?"
"It's cheap, it features some great retrospective and history of the character and the franchise and even better looks at the entire series and its place in the annuls of horror history."
Friday the 13th (1980)
"If you don't own the original film this is the one to get in either Blu-ray or standard def as you won't find it looking any better any time soon and the new special features look awesome. Plus, it's damn cheap"
Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)
"REPO! is overall just a lot of fun. From the catchy numbers, to the sexy cast, to the original ideas, to an ample load of bodies and mayhem, it is worthwhile checking out and enjoying."
Donkey Punch (2008)
"British thriller about seven college-age Britons in Spain who come together for an afternoon of flirting and wind up having a night of sex, paranoia and murder"
My Bloody Valentine (1981)
"A subpar slasher from the golden days of the genre gets an excellent new digital cut and some new extras"
The Alphabet Killer (2008)
"Fans of Dushku will get their money's worth. However, the rest of THE ALPHABET KILLER doesn't spell either good detective work or true spectral horror."
Quantum of Solace (2008)
"It would be hard to top the legend-relaunching force of CASINO ROYALE. QUANTUM OF SOLACE wisely doesn't try, contenting itself and us with being a good if unexceptional entry in the Bond franchise."
