    Pretty Little Liars: The Complete Seventh & Final Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on July 28th, 2017

    “Two can keep a secret as long as one of them is dead.”

    The Pretty Little Liars have finally reached the end of their rope. And while you discovered who little mini-A’s were over the previous six years, you’re finally going to get to the bottom of the entire mystery. I’ll admit it’s a bit of a shocker. With the end upon us, this is no place for beginners. If you don’t know who Aria, Spencer, Emily, Hannah, and Alison are, it’s time for you to head back to the beginning and catch up. You can find our reviews from those seasons here. For the rest of you, let’s talk Pretty Little Liars, shall we?

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on April 20th, 2016

    “Two can keep a secret as long as one of them is dead.”

    When it comes to Pretty Little Liars, it seems making the fans crazy is what they do best. The fifth season of the show is out on DVD, and this is no place for beginners.

    Pretty Little Liars: Season 5

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on June 16th, 2015

    “It means what it always means. Nobody tells you anything when you wanna know it. Only when they feel like telling it. And then only enough to make you crazy to know more.”

    Pretty Little Liars: Season 4

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on June 4th, 2014

    “Senior year is supposed to be the best year of your life. Did you know that? Yeah, if you survive it.”

    It’s a new season, and the girls face new dangers. You have to give the writers some credit here. While the whole A thing can get a little old, they do a good job of changing the dynamics between the Liars’ relationships both inside and outside their group. Foes can become friends, and friends often turn out to be foes. There is a lot more turmoil inside of the group as each of the Liars takes a turn being a bit of an outsider for a short while.

    Pretty Little Liars: The Complete Third Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on June 11th, 2013

    “Two can keep a secret as long as one of them is dead.”

    And there are a lot of secrets to be found on the ABC Family show Pretty Little Liars. It seems that Alison (Pieterse) was murdered in the small Pennsylvania town of Rosewood. She was the “queen bee” of a small clique of girls. She was fond of manipulating those around her, and it seems her head games have finally caught up with her. That leaves her four close friends behind to get on with their lives. That’s going to be hard now. Allison’s body has finally been discovered, the missing-person investigation is now a homicide investigation, and the four little busy bees are at the heart of the storm.

    Pretty Little Liars: The Complete First Season

    “Two can keep a secret as long as one of them is dead.”

    And there are a lot of secrets to be found on the ABC Family show Pretty Little Liars. It seems that a year earlier Alison (Pieterse) disappeared in the small Pennsylvania town of Rosewood.

    Tuesday Round Up: July 25, 2017

    Posted in Tuesday Round Up by John Ceballos on July 25th, 2017

    Looks like the unofficial theme of this week’s Tuesday Round Up is girl power! Scarlett Johansson looks good in any situation, but Paramount was generous enough to present her in dazzling 4K with this week’s release of Ghost in the Shell, a live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga/anime classic. HBO says farewell to Girls: The Final Season, while Warner Bros. bids an honest goodbye to Pretty Little Liars: The Final Season. Warner also remembered to send along the Rosario Dawson/Katherine Heigl thriller Unforgettable. Meanwhile, Lionsgate/Vestron Series momentarily crashes this girls party with the Warlock Collection on Blu-ray.

    Luckily, the end of the week gets us back on brand with the release of the Charlize Theron action romp Atomic Blonde. Now it’s time for the customary reminder before signing off for the week (and for July): 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!

    Tuesday Round Up: April 19, 2016

    Posted in Tuesday Round Up by John Ceballos on April 19th, 2016

    We’ve got a bear of a Round Up for you this week, my friends! Leonard DiCaprio tussled with a vicious grizzly and took home his first Oscar for The Revenant. And now, thanks to Fox, we’ll bring you a Blu-ray review of the hit survival drama. Lionsgate also engages in some gross Misconduct, while Entertainment One seeks safe Haven: The Final Season. HBO plays second fiddle with Veep: Season 4 and innovates in Silicon Valley: Season 2. Comedy Central brings back Daniel Tosh: People Pleaser, while Magnolia Home Entertainment lampoons an iconic magazine/comedy brand with Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead. Finally, Warner Bros. schemes with Pretty Little Liars: Season 6.

    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!

    Adulterers

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Dan Holland on January 3rd, 2016

    It is not very often that I am able to say that a film revolving around an extramarital affair keeps me engaged. While the writing in Adulterers became rather unfavorable towards the end, the strength of the conflict and the pacing of the editing and cinematography combine to make a significant force. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by the intensity of the drama that unfolds among the disturbed trio, but there were many moments that distracted me from that pleasure. Through this review, I aim to be as fair and as spoiler-free as possible. I believe this film is definitely worth the watch, regardless of what does not “work” for me.

    Lost For Words

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Deborah Bostock-Kelley on June 25th, 2015

    Right off the bat, the first 10-minute flashback in Lost for Words that repeats verbatim at the end could have been left on the cutting room floor. If you’re looking for an in-your-face, action-packed summer blockbuster, this isn’t for you. If you have more sophisticated tastes and are seeking a slow to medium-paced love story that transcends country and race, Lost for Words tells the beautiful bilingual tale of American ex-Marine-now-IT-guru Michael and Chinese modern dance ballerina Anna.

    The Newsroom: The Complete Third Season (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on June 19th, 2015

    “We’re not in the middle of the third act. We just got to the end of the first.”

    Aaron Sorkin almost definitely knew The Newsroom had been simultaneously renewed for a third season and canceled when he wrote those words, which come at the end of the season 3 premiere. It’s a winking and bittersweet bit of writing for a show that seemingly infuriated as many more people than it delighted over the course of 25 episodes. (Which apparently amounts to a single season of Pretty Little Liars.) So how else would you expect The Newsroom to go out than with moments of singular brilliance mixed in with a few controversial bangs?

    Love Me (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Jonathan Foster on January 23rd, 2013

    When I first received Love Me, I thought it was going to be just another angsty teen drama. (Something along the lines of Dawson’s Creek.) That notion was quickly disabused, however, when a young girl is stalked and attacked in the opening scene. From there, the film jumps ahead three months, with the town still reeling from her disappearance. While discussing how eerie the case is with her friends, Sylvia Potter (Lindsay Shaw, TV’s Pretty Little Liars) quite literally bumps into rich pretty boy Lucas Green (Jamie Johnston, TV’s Degrassi: The Next Generation) and falls for him instantly.

    Scream of the Banshee

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on August 8th, 2011

    “We are looking at an unexplained phenomenon. It appears to be a partially preserved severed head, maybe of a deformed person or a wild animal. Perhaps the metal base contained some sort of preservative presently unknown to us.”

    Or maybe it’s the severed head of the titular Banshee from this SyFy original film Scream Of The Banshee. And, oh what a scream it is.

    You Again (Blu-Ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on January 11th, 2011

    For those who have made it through my prior two reviews of terror by romantic comedy, I salute you. You are certainly stronger and far more resilient than one could ever imagine. But, we always save the best (worst) for last. It is an unspeakable tale of big Hollywood stars, revenge and a great overdose of Disney movie magic. Come in, if you dare and witness the debacle that can only be known as You Again.

    Hemingway & Gellhorn (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on April 2nd, 2013

    “The important thing for a writer is to tell a good story.”

    Martha Gellhorn, considered by some to be the greatest war correspondent of the 20th century, was extremely adamant about not wanting to be a footnote in someone else’s life. So I’m thinking the writer — who died in 1998 — may have had mixed feelings about Hemingway & Gellhorn. On one hand, her life story gets the prestigious (and mostly sympathetic) HBO Films treatment, and Gellhorn is played by Oscar winner Nicole Kidman in a sensational, searing turn. On the other hand

    The Complete Love Comes Softly Collection

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on January 6th, 2010

    It would appear that Michael Landon, Jr. is attempting to cash in on his late father’s Little House On The Prairie appeal. He is one of the driving forces behind this series of made for television films. He has directed several of them and serves as an executive producer on them all. He has also been involved with some of the writing on the series. They are based on a series of books written by Janette Oke. They follow three generations of women in the days of the Western frontier. When I say that Landon is spending on his father’s legacy, you need look no further than the common elements of the films themselves to understand how I come to that conclusion.

    Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on October 11th, 2002

    Well. Where to begin? At this point, no-one expected less than a truly amazing DVD release of Episode II from Fox, and true to form, they have certainly delivered. The Attack of the Clones release sets the new standard for audio and video, as did Episode I before it.

    It is interesting, though, to examine this DVD relative to the release of Episode I. The Phantom Menace DVD had a lot riding on it – the first Star Wars film to be released on DVD would set the precedent for future releases, and it had the furt…
