Blu-ray Review: The Beaver

Kevin watched Jodie Foster's The Beaver, which didn't perform too well in theaters, so how does it play at home? Click on through to read Kevin's review of the newly released Blu-ray.

Blu-ray Review: Priest (Unrated)

Blu-ray Review: Priest (Unrated)

Is anyone NOT tired of vampires? I didn't think so. Fortunately, while Priest does have vampires, it isn't really a vampire movie in the sense that we've become accustomed to. And it's all the better for it. The monstrous villains in Priest are much closer to the I Am Legend dark seekers than Edward Cullen... Read more »

Blu-ray Review: Rio

Blu-ray Review: Rio

For Brazilian director Carlos Saldanha (Ice Age), Rio is every bit as much of a love letter to his hometown as Manhattan is for Woody Allen. In hopes of bringing the city's essence to a computer generated setting, he sent crew members to experience the city first hand. They went hang gliding over the city... Read more »

Blu-ray Review: Dylan Dog: Dead of Night

I have never seen a Blu-ray with zero special features before.

Blu-ray Review: Naked (Criterion Collection)

In the past few years I've fallen in love with Mike Leigh's work.

It wasn't until Happy-Go-Lucky in 2008 that I saw my... Read more »

Blu-ray Review: Limitless

Blu-ray Review: Limitless

Funny story. I just finished watching watching Bigger Than Life (the closing credits were literally still on the screen) as the UPS delivery guy rang my doorbell to drop off my copy of Limitless. The excellent 1956 Nicholas Ray film -- I'm talking about Bigger Than Life now -- stars James Mason as a family... Read more »
