Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: The Confirmation

June 5th, 2016

The Confirmation

The Confirmation opened in limited release, and Video on Demand in March. Like most films that debut on Video on Demand, this one went nowhere at the box office. Will it do better on DVD / Blu-ray? More...

Featured TV on DVD Review: Veep: Season 4

April 17th, 2016

Veep: Season 4

Veep stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who at the beginning of the show, was the Vice President of the United States. Things have changed. So far during the show's four-year run, it has earned excellent reviews and this past year was one of the biggest winners at the Emmys. Does it deserve this praise? Or am I in the minority here?

Limited and VOD Releases: Limited Releases are Very Special

March 18th, 2016

Midnight Special

Of the seven films on this week's list, five of them are earning excellent reviews and one of the other two is a Bollywood film with no reviews. Midnight Special was supposed to open wide, but that's not happening now. It could still find an audience in theaters. Additionally, Krisha is being released by A24 and that distributor has a very good track record. More...

Featured TV on DVD Review: Drunk History: Season 3

February 29th, 2016

Drunk History: Season 3

I featured Drunk History on a Holiday Gift Guide and I stand by that recommendation. It's got a really simple set-up and a better than expected execution. On the other hand, I was worried that it's high concept meant a really short shelf life. Would I grow tired of the show after just three seasons? Or is it still entertaining? More...

Featured TV on DVD Review: Burn Notice: Season Six

August 6th, 2013

The latest season of Burn Notice arrived a little late, and by a little I mean more than a full month. Since it is one of my favorite summer shows, I was eagerly awaiting its arrival. But now that I've seen it, was it worth the wait? More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume 2

November 13th, 2012

When the Pixar Short Film Collection, Volume 1 came out five years ago, I was super excited. Not only do I love Pixar's theatrical release, but I like short films in general and there are so few places to get them. I'm less excited about volume 2, because Pixar has been releasing its short films on DVD and Blu-ray, so if you have been keeping up with their releases, you have this already. But, is there more to this release than just the short films? More...

Emancipation of Limited Releases

November 9th, 2012

There's quite a few limited releases coming out this week, but the list is dominated by Lincoln, which should not only be the biggest hit of the week, but it is virtually guaranteed to expand wide and has a real shot at being the big winner at the Oscars next year. Unfortunately, it is the only limited release with a real shot at mainstream success. Starlet is a long shot, but it deserves to find an audience in theaters. More...
