“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.

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

by James Harveyon April 29, 2011

This latest season is definitely no exception to […]

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.
