    Old Dogs (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on March 15th, 2010

    I have to admit that I approached Old Dogs as cautiously as I’d approach a rabid junkyard dog. With a story that sounds like another retelling of Three Men And A Baby and the setup, and director, of Disney’s Wild Hogs, it seemed pretty apparent that this film was not going to offer anything terribly new or exciting. When I started watching the film I discovered that I was pretty much right. This is very much Three Men And A Baby meets Wild Hogs. More importantly, I was also correct in believing the film wouldn’t offer up anything all that original or new. What I didn’t expect, and what will make this a film worth watching for you anyway, is that the delivery here is actually pretty special.

    South Park: The Complete Thirteenth Season (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on March 15th, 2010

    I’ve been a fan of South Park ever since a friend introduced me to the internet Christmas card that started it all.

In a short time season sets began to arrive,

    Possession is a remake of a Japanese thriller called Jungdok (or Addicted). It was also scheduled to be released a year ago, but was pushed because the original distributor went bankrupt. Eventually, after a dozen set backs and push backs of the release date, it was given a straight to DVD release here in the states. Was it worth the wait and hassles?

    Alice

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on March 15th, 2010

    Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books from my youth. One of my favorite birthday presents was a gorgeous copy of the book with illustrations from my aunt. So as a result, I have seen many incantations of the classic title from the famous Disney animated movie to a plethora of tv series & movies. Enter 2010, hoopla over the Alice in Wonderland remake with Johnny Depp, the way was opened for other adaptations attempting to cash in. Alice, a mini-series on SyFy premiered in late 2009 and became the 2nd most watched mini-series in SyFy’s history (first being Tin Man). But how good exactly was it?
