“The Green Hornet” Blu-ray Review

by Zach Demeteron April 29, 2011
The Green Hornet film was in development hell for years, possibly decades (I didn’t follow it that far back), before a studio finally got serious about making a film. Sony finally got the ball rolling when a serviceable script was introduced and…it was co-written by and starring Seth Rogen. Mind you the immediate reaction of all […]

“South Park: The Complete Fourteenth Season” Blu-ray Review

by James Harveyon April 29, 2011
It’s amazing how relevant South Park can stay fourteen years into its run. Where other shows falter and sputter to the end, barely crossing the finish line intact, South Park seems to always adapt to the situation, managing to become stronger, sharper, and…just funnier with every season. This latest season is definitely no exception to […]

by DVD Report Staffon April 29, 2011
The conversion of book to cinema has never ceased to be a difficult feat for filmmakers ranging from problems to whittling down the story into something that appeases the average audience member’s attention span, to replicating the imagery that the author invokes on the reader. Some of the most difficult ones are the books that […]

“The King’s Speech” Blu-ray Review

by DVD Report Staffon April 27, 2011
Living in a present in which most political leaders’ messages go vastly ignored by a cynical public, it’s hard to imagine an era in which a leader’s effectiveness actually hinged on his speaking ability.

“Gulliver’s Travels” Blu-ray Review

by DVD Report Staffon April 27, 2011
The live-action directorial debut of Rob Letterman, previously having dabbled in directing the less than favored CG-animated “Shark Tale” and “Monsters vs. Aliens,” brings the cinematic audiences yet another rendition of the Jonathon Swift classic, Gulliver’s Travels. It’s a story, or rather the most common portion, that’s been manifested on the big and small screens […]

by Zach Demeteron April 26, 2011
When acclaimed documentary filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker (Monterey Pop, The War Room) filmed Bob Dylan during a three-week concert tour of England in the Spring of 1965, he had no idea he was about to create one of the most intimate glimpses of the rock legend ever put on film. Wanting to make more than just […]

Not only one of Martin Scorsese’s most iconic films but also one of Robert DeNiro’s, Taxi Driver stands the test of time with performances that remind us why it was such a groundbreaking film…all the way back in 1976.

“Black Swan” Blu-ray Review

by DVD Report Staffon April 8, 2011
There’s a reason why Black Swan was one of the most buzzed about movies last year, and this year heading into the Oscars. What director Darren Aronofsky has managed to weave together is an impression, nightmarish thriller where not even the viewers can believe everything they see. Driven by an absolutely show-stopping performance by Natalie […]
