Featured Blu-ray review: Crocodile Dundee / Crocodile Dundee II

May 12th, 2014

Before I say anything about this Blu-ray... Crocodile Dundee is a trilogy. It is a trilogy, but they are releasing just the first two films. That's a big slight. The first Crocodile Dundee cost less than $10 million, but it made more than $300 million worldwide in 1986. Just two years later, Crocodile Dundee 2 came out, and while it made nearly $100 million less worldwide, it was still a huge hit. Nearly 30 years later, these two films are coming out on a two-disc Blu-ray set. Has it aged well? Will fans of the films want to pick it up? More...

Featured TV on DVD Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation: Unification

November 17th, 2013

This is the third two-part episode from Star Trek: The Next Generation to be released as a stand-alone Blu-ray, but it is not a season finale. Those made sense to release, because it is in someways unfair to make someone wait to finish a two-part episode when the show has been off air for a couple decades. But both parts Unification are coming out on Blu-ray the same day on the Season Five Blu-ray. So is it really worth it to buy it separately? More...

Featured TV on DVD Review: Dragons: Riders of Berk - Part 1 and 2

August 3rd, 2013

How to Train Your Dragon came out in 2010, and while it is not the biggest hit from Dreamworks, it remains their best. Since then, a sequel has been put in the works, but to fill the time, a TV series was made. Dragons: Riders of Berk is not the first TV series based on an animated movie. In fact, it is the third from Dreamworks alone. But is it worth checking out for fans of the movie? Or is it a pale imitation? More...
