Featured Blu-ray Review: Sandlot: 25th Anniversary Edition

April 6th, 2018

The Sandlot

The Sandlot is a movie about nostalgia that is old enough that people can feel nostalgic about it. Has the film aged well in the past 25 years? Or has time not been as kind to it? More...

Featured TV on DVD Review: True Blood: The Complete Sixth Season

July 11th, 2014

For the past couple of seasons of True Blood, there have been troubling signs. The show was clearly off its peak in terms of quality and this was adversely affecting its ratings as well.

And is the Blu-ray worth picking up? More...

March 25th, 2013

The Sandlot opened in 1993 and only earned good reviews, but not great reviews, and went on to become a midlevel hit, but no more. On the other hand, it became a bit of a cult classic on the home market. Does its appeal depend on nostalgia? Or is it a good film in its own regard? More...
