My Boyfriend’s Back – Blu-ray Review

My Boyfriend's Back blu-ray box art

It’s always nice when a movie you remember from back in the day still holds up after several years. My Boyfriend’s Back is definitely one of those forgotten gems from the early 90’s that remains quite entertaining. That being said, my experience with film criticism today is a lot better than it was when I ...

Artwork from Dinotopia DVD set

Dinotopia is not a good series by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a fairly interesting curiosity from an otherwise dull era of television.

Soap (1977) – Seasons 1 & 2 DVD Review

06-H-soap_-2

Throughout the late 70’s and early 80’s, there were a plethora of amazing genre bending films and television shows that changed the way we looked at television. While there was still an audience for the classic, family friendly fare that Baby Boomers and their parents had grown up with, the viewership for that content began ...

Panic Room (2002) – DVD Review

Panic_Room_poster

The first time I saw this movie, I thought of it simply as another sub-par Jodie Foster flick. Of course, I didn’t know that much about film back then, so it’s difficult to take my first impressions seriously in this case. I never really thought it was a bad movie, but I wasn’t really too ...
