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

DVD Shopping Bag: White Zombie Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(January 29, 2013)
It is funny how in watching one movie your eyes open to so many others. When I first watched Tim Burton’s Ed Wood I knew of only Bela Lugosi’s work in the Universal Monster Classics.

DVD Shopping Bag: The Man Who Knew Too Much 1934 by Robert T. Trate , Columnist and Critic
(January 22, 2013)
ver the past couple of years I have building an Alfred Hitchcock library. Not so much a wing onto my house or anything just a collection of his films. Last November’s Alfred Hitchcock’s Master Piece Collection on Blu-ray (see column) was a boom to the

DVD Shopping Bag: BRANDED by Robert T. Trate , Columnist and Critic
(January 15, 2013)
We’re going to try and different approach this week to the DVD Shopping Bag. Rarely do I let my other duties infringe on this column. What the DVD Shopping Bag provides is a look at one title or perhaps a new released box set.

DVD Shopping Bag: The Look Ahead and DREDD by Robert T. Trate , Columnist and Critic
(January 08, 2013)
Today’s obligatory must own Blu-ray/ DVD is DREDD. I saw saw the film at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con. It was a strange experience as Judge Dredd, himself, Karl Urban sat right behind me in the theater. Never was I so aware of yawning during a film. I wa

DVD Shopping Bag: Looper Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(January 01, 2013)
Thanks to Sony I received an early Christmas gift as Rian Johnson’s Looper arrived a few days early (officially out January 8th). After interviewing both Johnson and the film’s star (see here), Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I was anxious to see this film.

DVD Shopping Bag: Last Minute Blu-rays and DVDs Gift Ideas by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(December 18, 2012)
Well Maniacs, here we are and another year is about to pass us by. With the big holiday coming up, many of us are rushing out for a few last minute gifts.

DVD Shopping Bag: Brazil Criterion Collection Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(December 11, 2012)
Be honest for this next question: How many of you Maniacs have made it all the way through Brazil? No, not the country, but Terry Gilliam’s mind numbing look at the future. I’ll be honest and tell you I watched it once only to fall asleep. I’ve seen

DVD Shopping Bag: Star Trek The Next Generation Season 2 Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(December 04, 2012)
CBS and Paramount have released the second season of Star Trek the Next Generation on Blu-ray. The sophomore effort of the series does take its tumbles from time to time.

DVD Shopping Bag: The Rites of Spring by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(November 27, 2012)
What sways you for movies these days? Back in the day I would walk the video store where I worked and pick films based on the box.

DVD Shopping Bag: Expendables 2 by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(November 20, 2012)
All right, admit it. You sat through the first Expendables movie and liked it enough to watch the second. The concept, not the story, is great. Take all the classic eighties action stars and team them up for an adventure. The first movie worked and made a
