DVD Shopping Bag: Doctor Who: The Tenth Planet by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(November 26, 2013)


DVD Shopping Bag: Night of the Comet Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(November 19, 2013)
When I first saw Thom E. Eberhardt’s Night of the Comet it was simply because of the original box (beautifully supplied here by Scream Factory as a reverse cover). A comet comes and wipes out humanity.

DVD Shopping Bag: Man of Steel Dilemma by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(November 12, 2013)


DVD Shopping Bag: The Right Stuff Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(November 05, 2013)


DVD Shopping Bag: After Earth by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(October 29, 2013)
By this point I was more curious to see if M. Night Shyamalan would fail again at the box office then be entertained by one of his stories. I skipped The Happening all together and sadly journeyed into Avatar: The Last Air Bender against my better judgemen

DVD Shopping Bag: Vincent Price Collection by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(October 22, 2013)
This week, we have a real Halloween treat from Shout! Factory. The master of the macabre is back with six chilling tales of terror. The Vincent Price Collection includes FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER (1960), THE HAUNTED PALACE (1963), THE MASQUE OF RED DEATH

DVD Shopping Bag: The East Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(October 08, 2013)
When I first saw the trailer for The East I was hooked and hooked for one reason, Brit Marling. Now before you think what you are thinking, no it was not because of the way she looks.

DVD Shopping Bag: Halloween 35th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(October 01, 2013)
When Anchor Bay Entertainment announced that they were releasing John Carpenter's Halloween again on Blu-ray I thought that it made sense.

DVD Shopping Bag: Iron Man 3 Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 24, 2013)
When last summer began, I was really at a fever pitch for Iron Man 3 and not because I was a huge Iron Man fan (movie or comic). In fact, I didn’t really love the first one or the second. I appreciated what Robert Downey Jr. brought to the role, but the

DVD Shopping Bag: Day of the Dead Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 17, 2013)
One of the fascinating things about George Romero’s “Dead” Trilogy (when it was still a trilogy) was how it was all made by different studios. This meant none of the music or characters could carry over from one film to the next.

DVD Shopping Bag: Frankensteins Army Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 10, 2013)
There comes a time Maniacs, when one gets giddy with joy. It can come from a clip for a film or even just a a title. As titles go Frankenstein’s Army get me curious, then I saw this (clip below) and got giddy.

DVD Shopping Bag: Now You See Me by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 03, 2013)
When Now You See Me arrived in theaters, the trailers had a great hook to them to get our attention.

DVD Shopping Bag: The Walking Dead Season 3 Blu-rays by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(August 27, 2013)
As AMC starts to gear us up for Season 4 of The Walking Dead, the Blu-rays for Season 3 have arrived today. I thought about how I wanted to approach reviewing Season 3 on Blu-ray. You either watch this series or you don’t. If you don’t, what the hell i

DVD Shopping Bag: Q The Winged Serpent by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(August 19, 2013)
As fall approaches, the pumpkins sprout, and the horror titles will arrive in the DVD Shopping Bag. Over the next several months a cornucopia of titles will surface. Many will be the rehashes in new packages with the same old special features that now grac

DVD SHOPPING BAG: Criterion Collection Lord of the Flies by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(August 13, 2013)
The first time I had ever heard of Lord of the Flies was when the trailer appeared on TV. Obviously, this was for the 1990 film version of the story. The premise fascinated me at the age of 15. Could I survive on a deserted island with my classmates? The d

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.
