The Hangover | DVD Review

In The Air Tonight
A review of The Hangover on Blu-Ray
by Kenneth Holm

     The Hangover is very much a case of the little movie that could. With a crude, smaller budget film like this, no one really expected too much out of it. Even Lindsay Lohan turned down a part because she did not think it was ever going to go anywhere. Surprisingly, The Hangover turned out to be one of the biggest hits of 2009, raking in scads of cash and assuring a career for everyone involved. I have a little history going into The Hangover. I saw it in the theater and was not terribly amused. I thought the acting was sub-par, the plot ludicrous, and the humor dumbed down to the point of being retarded. However, then I saw it again.

Supernatural: Season Four | DVD Review

Grim Brothers
Jenny Sobczak
Staff Writer

Supernatural is one of the highest-rated shows on the CW, however much that means in the world of television as a whole. The season premiere for the fifth season pulled in excellent ratings for the network, while the fourth season DVDs were released at the very beginning of September. The stars never cease to surprise in the DVD’s features, either. For a show with only two regulars, Supernatural has been full of twists, turns, and demons from day one, and the features of season five give real insight to the mythology behind the series.

Dead Like Me: Life after Death | DVD Review

Shoulda been cremated and launched into space, instead of that cat...

            Showtime has an incredible knack for offing their original series regardless of the fan base. All too often, this also occurs with a season finale ending in a cliffhanger (or several) becoming a series' finale and leaving a load of unanswered questions. Dead Like Me (2003-2005) had two stellar seasons and ended with a barn burner. Seeing that the series would make a comeback in the form of a feature length DVD movie, I chomped at the bit to see what was up with my favorite characters and exactly how those annoying little loose ends were going to get tied up. I had high hopes, for if nothing else, I'd get one more chance to go reaping with George, Mason, Rube, Roxy and Daisy. What I got, was nothing of the sort.

Repo! The Genetic Opera | DVD Review

J. Sternberg
Staff Writer

            Okay kids, lets get our imagination hats on. Alright, picture the 2000's version of Moulin Rouge as a woman, you got it? Cool, Now picture Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd as a man (not the characters themselves, but put a face on the film, oh and for the hell of it, give it a hot body) got that? Great! Now picture them fucking like mad, and Moulin Rouge forgets her pill, and becomes pregnant. Oh no! What do Rouge and Todd do? Its simply really, get an abortion. They both go their merry way as this abortion has torn them apart, but that is not the end of the story. No! The fetus somehow survived and was raised by Robocop (the original X rated cut). That half aborted bastard, would be 2008's Repo! The Genetic Opera.

Repo!: The Genetic Opera | DVD Review

A Second Opinion
Kenneth Holm
Senior Staff Writer

            Now, I am fully aware that our erstwhile cub reporter J has already posted his review of Repo!: The Genetic Opera, but I will also chime in on this subject. See, I like J's review, and am happy that he had fun with it, even though I do think that the movie is much better than he gave it credit for. Let's look at this from the beginning...

Cursed | DVD Review

Cursed: A DVD Review
Kenneth Holm
Senior Staff Writer

            Now, I know what you are probably thinking. Rest assured, though, that this is not a review of the horrible Wes Craven stinker from 2005. Imagine if you will a horror movie with almost no cohesive structure and supernatural elements that combine themselves with the reckless abandon of free-form jazz. This is what Cursed is all about, and I'm happy to say that the results are cooler than they might sound.

Okay so this week is certainly better than some we have seen recently. There’s a wicked set of sisters, a teleporting loser, some very funny killers and a guy who just wants to go to prom.

Shutter (Thai) | DVD Review

Shutter A DVD Review By Kenneth Holm Senior Staff Writer
            Back in 2004, there was a film from Thailand set loose upon an unsuspecting populace. The film dealt with the world of “spirit photography”, and what it could actually be. Then, in 2008, the American public got a tepid remake of the film that originally shocked audiences worldwide, and there was no rejoicing. Even fans of Joshua Jackson were saddened. However, thanks go to the wonderful folks from Tartan Video for their “Asia Extreme” series, which finally brought the much-heralded original to American shores. Now, maybe the rest of us can see what all of the fuss was about, eh?

Addendum to The Mist | DVD Review

So, I suppose you may be wondering why this review of The Mist on DVD was relegated to a blog entry. Well, since I had already reviewed the theatrical version before, I thought that this would be appropriate. Plus, it just gets it into your grubby hands faster.
