Dante’s Inferno is an unusual direct-to-DVD release for two reasons: it’s only the second film tie-in to a videogame released the same day, and both adapt [very freely] Dante Alighieri’s epic poem of the same name. In the poem, Dante, more of a scholar than a fighter, finds his way into hell to save the […]
Blu-ray Review: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Sparkels then Fizzles on Blu-ray
It’s pretty amazing that I’ve never seen Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs before. Commercials for the movie never grabbed me and honestly I hate the music. So watching this movie on Blu-ray is a brand new experience for me. Snow White is the first Disney Disk (that I’ve seen) that uses something called Disney […]
DVD REVIEW: Dungeons & Dragons: The Complete Series – Animated, Saturday Morning Mayhem!
The premise was simple: a bunch of kids who play Dungeons & Dragons suddenly find themselves in a world where the roles they’ve played become real – and they gain the abilities of those characters for real.
TELEVISION: The Goode Family – Safe as Milk – Pasteurized, Bacteria-Free, Boring Old Milk!
ABC’s new animated series, The Goode Family [Wednesdays, 9/8C], is the series from Mike Judge of King of the Hill fame. If it was a tenth as funny as that series, The Goode Family might be worth checking out. Instead, this comedy about the Goode family – vegan, non-confrontational, recycling, hybrid-driving – bends over backwards […]

DVD REVIEW: X-Men – Marvel Comic Book Collection Volumes 1 & 2 – The ‘90’s Animated Series Is Back!
Back in 1992, fans of Marvel Comics – and superheroes in general – were delighted to find Marvel’s merry band of mutants on Saturday morning television. The series, which ran for seventy-six episodes, brought Marvel’s unique brand of wit and topicality to kids’ TV and ran for five seasons over six years. X-Men Vol. 1 […]
MOVIE REVIEW: Battle for Terra, Michelle’s Review
I’m not sure what to think or even say about Battle for Terra. On the one hand, I always complain about American Animation being too child friendly and not serious enough, but Battle For Terra suffers from being way too serious. I was intrigued by the story and twist that for a change the Human […]
CONTEST: Win our Exclusive Battle for Terra Toy Set!
Here’s something pretty cool. We have 5 sets of Toy Figurines for the Battle for Terra to give away. I’m personally looking forward to this movie, it has a unique plot where Humans are actually the invaders of another world. The film tells the story of Senn (Justin Long) and Mala (Evan Rachel Wood), two […]
MOVIE REVIEW: Monsters Vs. Aliens 3D, Surprisingly Bland Experience. Michelle’s Review!
I was going to start this review off by talking about how tough it is to review a movie that’s technically brilliant but bland as heck then I was going to go into this whole rant about how I’m not a snob, but in reality I am, but I’m poor so I have to keep […]

DVD REVIEW: The Real Ghostbusters: The Complete Series – Sometimes Scary, Sometimes Funny, Always Smart!
Forget, for a minute, that the complete run of The Real Ghostbusters comes in a box that is the team’s fire station headquarters –with lenticular “no ghosts” symbol on one side and a lenticular Slimer on another. Ignore, also, that the five volumes that encompass the series are packaged in five steelbook cases and a […]
