Featured Blu-ray Review: Aliens: 30th Anniversary

October 17th, 2016

Aliens: 30th Anniversary

The original Alien movie can be described as a haunted house movie set in space, only with an alien instead of a supernatural entity attacking the cast.

Featured 3D Blu-ray / DVD Review: Jurassic World

October 29th, 2015

Jurassic World

(As we mentioned previously, we've run out of images for Jurassic World, so we're reduced to using less than official images.
