DVD Shopping Bag: Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(August 06, 2013)
Greetings Maniacs. Sorry if this one is a week behind, but I finally got the chance to watch Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox. In a word, wow. To step back for just a second, I will have to go one record in saying that I am not an avid reader of The Fl

DVD Shopping Bag: Evil Dead 2013 Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(July 23, 2013)
With the announcement of a new Evil Dead film so many moons ago, I was skeptic. Another Hollywood rehash of a beloved classic. When I heard that the triad of producers had reunited to do it right, I was more hopeful. In fact I was down right pleased. Who b

DVD Shopping Bag: Bullet to the Head Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(July 16, 2013)
I didn’t catch Bullet to the Head in theaters last February. In actuality, I haven’t see a Stallone film, in the theater, since I saw the Expendables back in 2010.

DVD Shopping Bag: Robot Chicken DC Comics Special by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(July 09, 2013)
When the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special aired last September, I was beside myself with laughter. Literally, I watched it twice and could not stop laughing. When it was announced that it was coming to Blu-ray and Ultraviolet, I knew that I wanted to add it

DVD Shopping Bag: Stoker Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(July 02, 2013)
Mania has given me a lot of great opportunities in the 6 years that I have been writing for them. One of the finer moments came when I sat down with Chan-wook Park and did a 1:1 interview. Just he and I talking about movies. It was intimidating. We needed

DVD Shopping Bag: Enter the Dragon 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collectors Edition by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(June 25, 2013)
Enter the Dragon first came into my life because of a little film called Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. I was looking forward to this biopic and, luckily for me, I worked at a video store that had a copy of Enter the Dragon. I was less than impressed. The co

DVD Shopping Bag: Giants, Werewolves, and Space Vampires by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(June 18, 2013)
Thankfully, this week features some choice titles for the DVD Shopping Bag. Sure, there are always picks in the Sci-Fi/ Fantasy/ Horror genres. This week, however, is just too encompassing to pick just one title. Instead, I dove right in and picked three f

DVD Shopping Bag: Mad Max Blu-ray Trilogy by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(June 11, 2013)
I was on a podcast for about two years where we had this segment called “The Nerd Confession”. Usually this was a deep rooted secret and it was mentioned to spark a conversation that would go on and on.

DVD Shopping Bag: Clint Eastwood: 40 Film Collection by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(June 04, 2013)
This week, Warner Brothers is releasing the Clint Eastwood: 40 Film Collection. That’s right, 40 films that star and are occasionally directed by the living legend, Clint Eastwood. Most actors only dream of having a career as long and as diverse as Mr. E

DVD Shopping Bag: Ultimate Gangster Collection: Classics and Contemporary Blu-rays by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(May 28, 2013)
We are going to step out of our normal genre, just for moment, to highlight two Blu-ray box sets that were released last week from Warner Brothers.

DVD Shopping Bag: The Burning Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(May 21, 2013)


DVD Shopping Bag: Cloud Atlas Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(May 14, 2013)
When Cloud Atlas arrived last October, it opened to mix reviews. The trailer was fascinating with its different time lines and enormous cast. For multiple reasons (time constraints, busy work schedule), I didn’t get to see Cloud Atlas.

DVD Shopping Bag: Superman: Unbound by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(May 07, 2013)
To coincide with next month’s release of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, Warner Brothers has released another DC Universe animated film. This time it is Geoff Johns and Gary Frank’s 2008 “Superman: Brainiac”.

DVD Shopping Bag: STNG: THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate , Columnist and Critic
(April 30, 2013)
It was a crazy time for the cast, crew, and fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation. When those final moments arrived in season 3 I literally went out of mind with questions.

DVD Shopping Bag: Jurassic Park 3D Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate , News Editor
(April 23, 2013)
Earlier this month, Universal Studios re-released Jurassic Park in 3D IMAX. Let’s be honest right up front. I’ll move heaven and hell to see a movie in 35mm in the theater, especially if it is for the first time. Jurassic Park is different story. I saw

DVD Shopping Bag: Iron Man Rise of the Technovore by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(April 16, 2013)
I love the summer blockbusters. With their arrival, tons of new products will be introduced or re-introduced into the mainstream. With established properties like Iron Man, there will figures and cartoons that will keep the hype burning long into the the n

DVD Shopping Bag: The Vampire Lovers by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(April 09, 2013)
In two weeks The Vampire Lovers will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD from Shout! Factory. The film was originally released in 1970 by both Hammer Films and American International Productions (AIP).

DVD Shopping Bag: MARVELS CINEMATIC UNIVERSE: PHASE ONE by Robert T. Trate , Columnist and Critic
(April 01, 2013)
Not much out this week Maniacs. The one true pick up this week is MARVEL’S CINEMATIC UNIVERSE: PHASE ONE box set. The issue is, don’t we all already have these films? If not, well then today is your lucky day. Better yet, here is your chance for an upg

DVD Shopping Bag: Killing Them Softly Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(March 26, 2013)
The great things about DVDs and Blu-rays is getting that opportunity to see a film that just up and disappeared at the cinemas. I’ll be honest with you, I saw the trailer for Killing Them Softy and had no interest in the film. It looked as if someone cal

DVD Shopping Bag: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(March 19, 2013)
The time has come again to add yet another Middle Earth Blu-ray to our library. Now the question, like so many more that are about to follow, is: Why buy this one when we all know an Expanded Edition is coming?

DVD Shopping Bag: The Bay by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(March 12, 2013)
The Bay had a quiet release. Fitting, as movies that deal with this kind of horror also have a quiet beginning. The town of Claridge, Maryland is getting ready for the big festival. The mayor is kissing babies, the locals are participating in crab eating c

DVD Shopping Bag: A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection Blu-rays by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(March 05, 2013)
When Warner Brothers sent Mania the complete A Nightmare on Elm Street box set on Blu-ray I knew it was going to be a monumental task. How does one review seven films in such a franchise? Obviously, these films are not for every one. I wanted to look at wh

DVD Shopping Bag: Thief of Bagdad Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(February 26, 2013)
When the Cohen Film Collection announced that the Douglas Fairbanks classic, The Thief of Bagdad, was going to get their Blu-ray treatment, I knew I had to have a copy. The best part of being a critic is having an excuse to watch a film.

DVD Shopping Bag: Argo by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(February 19, 2013)
This week the DVD Shopping is going to take a bit of a departure and touch on a “fringe” movie instead of a straight up genre pic. Argo does have some spy elements and a Sci-Fi pic is involved with the plot. So, yes, it is a fringe movie for Mania.

DVD Shopping Bag: Robot and Frank by Robert T. Trate , Columnist and Critic
(February 12, 2013)
It’s a big action release week here for the DVD Shopping Bag. Not only is Skyfall arriving on Blu-ray, but a ton of other James Bond’s as well. If you refused to have certain Bonds in your collection (*cough* For Your Eyes Only and License to Kill) the
