‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (1974) Blu-ray Review

At a running time of only 24-minutes with only a brief 8 1/2 minute long featurette in tow, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas is surely overpriced at an MSRP of $24.99, but it still looks good given its nearly forty-year-old vintage.

WWII in HD: Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Review

The History Channel's engaging World War II documentary is reissued in a classy box with two feature-length bonus features that further the insight into this devastating period of human history.

Band of Brothers/The Pacific: Special Edition Gift Set Blu-ray Review

HBO Home Entertainment combines its two epic World War II mini-series, Band of Brothers and The Pacific, into a deluxe gift box with extras galore. This Tom Hanks-Steven Spielberg production is everything that battle buffs could want and tells stories that needed telling.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory: 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Review

Warner has reissued Willy Wonka on Blu-ray in this Ultimate Collector's Edition with a boatload of collectible items in tow, but if you don't need all the extra fluff, the previous Blu-ray Book edition with identical transfer will serve you just as well at a lower price.

Chuck: The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray Review

The Fourth Season of Chuck continues the zany adventures of Chuck Bartowski and his friends. With good video, lossless audio and a few nice features, this Fourth Season comes very recommended for fans of the series.

Moby Dick Blu-ray Review

A noble, yet flawed effort to bring Herman Melville's epic novel to television, Encore's two-part miniseries is still enjoyable to watch on this strong Blu-ray presentation.

Manhunter: 25th Anniversary Edition [UK Release] Blu-ray Review

Michael Mann's stylish film Manhunter marked the first appearance of the frightening character Hannibal Lecktor on the big screen, this time as played by Brian Cox (Troy; The Bourne Identity), and while it isn't quite as chilling as The Silence of the Lambs, it is thrilling in its own right.

Blood Simple Blu-ray Review

Blood Simple, the Coen Brothers first foray into movies, is a tautly director, well-shot film noir that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Excellent performances by the principals, including Frances McDormand's film debut make this one of the great infidelity flicks of recent memory.
