    Big Bang Theory: Season 8 (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 23rd, 2015

    Finally a situation comedy for geeks. Ever since Urkel went from being a one-off character on Family Matters to the star of the show, the geeks have been looking for their own series. With The Big Bang Theory you get plenty of geek factor with a healthy dose of laughter. I honestly haven’t laughed this much at a situation comedy in decades. Meet Sheldon Cooper (Parsons). He’s a brilliant young scientist working at a Pasadena university. His field was string theory but now he’s shifted to dark matter.

    Big Bang Theory: Season 7 (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on September 18th, 2014

    In case you’ve been hiding beneath a rock the past few years, The Big Bang Theory isn’t just a hit TV show, but instead it’s a show that has ingrained itself into pop culture.  You can go out to most major retailers and find shirts with “Bazinga”, and I’m willing to bet at least one of your Facebook friends has posted a GIF on their feed about the show.  It’s a show I told myself I wouldn’t get caught up in because I was so sure it was nothing more than a fad.

    The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Third Season (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on September 22nd, 2010

    “If you people spent less time thinking about sex and more time concentrating on comic books, we’d have far fewer embarrassing moments.”

    Tuesday Round Up: September 12 and 19, 2017

    Posted in Tuesday Round Up by John Ceballos on September 19th, 2017

    You probably heard that we had a very unwelcome visitor blow through town last week. And while UpcomingDiscs HQ is still standing, we did experience some stressful moments and a power outage that caused us to go off the grid for about a week. Fortunately, things are starting to get back to normal and we appreciate you bearing with us as we play catch up.

    One of Irma’s casualties was last week’s Tuesday Round Up, which is why we are doubling up this week!

    Batman and Harley Quinn: Limited-Edition Gift Set (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on August 30th, 2017

    We need Harley Quinn.”

    Warner Bros. still has a bit of a ways to go before its stable of DC Comics superheroes catches up to Disney’s dominant Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Warner and DC have long had the upper hand on both the small screen (Smallville, Arrow, The Flash) and with their animated, direct-to-video offerings. Before Wonder Woman saved the day earlier this summer, one of DC’s recent big-screen highlights was the way Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn enlivened the supervillain mash-up Suicide Squad. And while I’m fully aware that Harley’s appeal lies in being a strong, sexy, wisecracking nutjob, I wish the makers of this well-deserved small-screen showcase had taken her a bit more seriously.

    Tuesday Round Up: September 15, 2015

    Posted in Tuesday Round Up by John Ceballos on September 15th, 2015

    That sound you hear blaring out of UpcomingDiscs headquarters this week is probably The Who. We’ll be saying B-Y-E to CSI, as The Final Season of the long-running procedural crime drama arrives courtesy of CBS/Paramount, which also delivers CSI: Cyber — Season 1. If you listen closely, you might also catch a little Electric Light Orchestra as Universal Music Group offers up ELO: Live in Hyde Park. HBO dives into the disturbed psyches of Nightingale and The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst. Shout! Factory passes down The Legacy and The Bold Ones: The Protectors — The Complete Series.

    Disney swings by with Monkey Kingdom, MPI Home Video rockets Closer to the Moon and cops to The Seven Five, while A&E Home Video revisits The Returned: Season 1. Warner Bros. geeks out with The Big Bang Theory: Season 8, and you can already check out our take on Peanuts: The EMMY Honored Collection.

    And I reckon you guys don’t like free stuff as much as I figured you did. Remember that once a month we’re going to give away a free DVD title from among the comments in our weekly Round-Up posts. All you have to do is comment on a Round-Up post — like this one! — and tell us which of these titles you’re most excited to watch or read about. The winners and their prizes will be announced the first week of every month right here in our Tuesday Round-Up post. You can’t win if you don’t comment.

    And one last reminder before signing off for the week: if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs. See ya next week!

    Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015

    Posted in Tribute by Gino Sassani on February 28th, 2015

    “We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… human.”

    Many of the headlines read: “Spock is dead”. Of course, that’s not really true. Spock is a fictional character that will live on likely longer than any of us. But fans of science fiction in general and Star Trek fans in particularly have lost a friend today who was very human. Leonard Nimoy was 83.

    Wish I Was Here

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Paul on July 24th, 2014

    Zach Braff had a nice long run on the sitcom Scrubs, but he showed the world he was more than that by writing, directing and starring in the indie hit Garden State. Braff starred in some other movies but didn’t get much traction. He’s not really a leading-man type. He did have a nice supporting part in Oz the Great and Powerful, but Braff had already demonstrated he can do it all. Hollywood is not too friendly to original ideas, so Braff went to Kickstarter and had success.

    The Last Ride (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Jonathan Foster on June 17th, 2013

    Hank Williams, Sr. was arguably one the most influential country artists of all time. During his short life (he died at the young age of 29) he had more than 30 #1 singles. His music has been covered by not just country artists, but has also crossed over into the pop, gospel and blues genres. With The Last Ride, this music legend joins Johnny Cash and Loretta Lyn in having their lives put on film.

    Holliston: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 17th, 2012

    When I first learned that Adam Green (director of Hatchet and Frozen) would be creating a show to air on Fear Net, this seemed like a slice of heaven to me.  I love horror, and with the exception of The Walking Dead and American Horror Story there just hasn’t been much to watch from the genre.  So when I discovered that Green was going to be actually developing a sit-com instead, it would be fair to say I was more than a little disappointed by this news.  But then I was given a glimmer of hope when I heard it would be about a pair of struggling horror filmmakers. As a film graduate and a lover of horror, this instantly became something relatable to me.

    Family Guy, Volume Ten

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 4th, 2012

    I don’t believe anyone could have predicted not only Family Guy being on the air for over a decade but how big a power player Seth MacFarlane (creator of Family Guy and American Dad) would become.  With several shows currently in production, the release of his first live action feature Ted earlier this summer, and now the recently announced hosting of the upcoming Oscars, I believe it’s safe to say MacFarlane is about as big a name as Oprah.  And to think he didn’t have to give his fans cars to do it; he’s just that talented.

    Let Go

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on September 26th, 2012

    “‘Cause I’m a con, don’t mean I ain’t got no rights.”

    The movies have done a pretty good job of showing us the action, drama, horror, comedy and, yes, sex that lies behind prison walls. But there are far fewer examples of films examining what happens once an inmate is paroled and tries to re-enter the “real world.” The most famous movie parolee is probably Brooks from The Shawshank Redemption, and that didn’t turn out so well.

Together the episodes explore the most inner depths of planet Earth and the farthest reaches of our own Solar System. It’s all in high- definition Blu-ray. It will make a rather nice gift this holiday season. Here’s what you get:

    The Wave (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on June 22nd, 2016

    Disaster films are something that for me screams American cinema of the 90’s.  I know there were films before that had come out, but a good portion of my teen years of the 90’s were of the mega-blockbuster variety like Twister, Dante’s Peak, The Perfect Storm, and so forth.  Now we have The Wave, the first disaster film to come out of Norway, and from the looks of the trailers they were going for something BIG.  This is a film that comes out with so much potential and is a film that could even possibly find an American audience that could look past the fact that subtitles may be involved.  With the way technology has come along over the years, smaller countries have been able to produce films as big as anything released in our cinemas here in the states.  Now here’s the question: is it any good, though?

    Interstellar (Blu-Ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Paul on March 31st, 2015

    Most movies are just not very good. Lots of money goes into turning out boring, repetitive garbage. You watch it and then dispose of it and make room for the next thing. There are some who do more, but the more you do, the greater the risk. Most filmmakers are not given the freedom to take really big risks, but someone who has been given the opportunity to take the big risk is Christopher Nolan. Interstellar is $165,000,000 gamble shooting for the moon.  Actually Nolan is shooting for something way past the moon. He wants to take us to another galaxy.

    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on April 21st, 2014

    “Have you done anything noteworthy or mentionable?”

    It’s the sort of question that can easily apply to either your workday or your life as a whole. It’s also the question actor/producer/director Ben Stiller chose as the basis of his inspirational adaptation of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The original short story by James Thurber is less than five pages long, so a filmmaker has the option of going to any number of fascinating places in bringing Thurber’s tale to the big screen. Stiller, in essence, decided to take the scenic route.

    Ultimate Avengers Movie Collection (Blu-Ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on April 24th, 2012

    Most of us are aware (well movie and comic book fans anyway) that on May 4th, the Avengers movie will be released to the public. For years now we have watched the Iron Mans, Thor, Captain America and even a Hulk movie or two in anticipation of something greater. With that day coming closer all the time, I received a very nice 3 movie set of Avengers, animated style. Avengers might be the best movie of the summer (sorry Dark Knight), but this might be the best animated blu-ray value of the spring.

    Universe: Complete Season 5 (Blu-ray)

    “In the beginning there was darkness. And then bang, giving birth to an endless expanding existence of time, space, and matter. Now, see further than we’ve ever imagined. Beyond the limits of our existence. In a place we call The Universe.”

    Up until now these History releases have been season sets of the documentary series. This release is the first which appears to be a planned series of specific subject titles. It does create a bit of confusion when you see a series called The Universe and all of the episodes on the set deal with our own back yard

    Dare to Play the Game

    7-Eleven does Used Video Games, Call of Duty to broaden audience & Ubisoft says no to manuals? – Welcome to the column that tried printing up a manual to help you read more efficiently but then decided that would be counter-productive known as Dare to Play the Game.

    I’m still unable to really start a game lately. But interestingly enough I did go back to one game in particular over the weekend and that was Marvel vs Capcom 2 on Xbox Live Arcade.

    Universe, The – The Complete Season Four (Blu-Ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on March 8th, 2010

    In the beginning, many theories suggest that there was a big bang. From that event, it morphed into the planets, moons, stars and life as we know it. However, there is much that is not known in the cosmos and even more to explore. The Universe is entering its fourth season on the History Channel. After forty-four successful episodes, can they come back with twelve more interesting and intricate looks at space: the final frontier?

    Rocketing Used Game Sales, Wii Hour usage and Pirate Bay Lives On? – Welcome to the column that after three years would like to issue a serious message to its fanbase and that is PBBBBTTTTT! and also known as Dare to Play the Game.

    I hardly played my Xbox 360 at all this week. It was mostly used for Rock Band 2 and to get in some Cellfactor. Nothing changed in those games, no achievements were gained. What did I really do this week?

    World of Warcraft. *sigh*.
