DVD Shopping Bag: 5 Last Minute Criterion Blu-ray Gift Ideas! by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(December 17, 2013)


Winter of '83: The Keep by Rob Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(December 16, 2013)
Some actors shouldn’t appear in certain genres. Case in point: The Oklahoma Kid, a 1939 Western starring James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart. (Here’s the trailer if you want a laugh: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkNdbJxZZiE.) The same can be said of dir

2 Guns Blu-Ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(December 11, 2013)
2 Guns is a fairly standard buddy action film elevated slightly on the strength of its two leads:  Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg.  The film is based on a graphic novel published by Boom! Studios.  Washington plays Robert Trench, and undercover DEA

The Winter of '83: Sudden Impact by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(December 11, 2013)
Considering that Sudden Impact delivers one of the most memorable lines in movie history, it's surprising how forgettable the rest of it is. Clint Eastwood directed it himself, and had evolved from an enthusiastic layman behind the camera to someone who re

Saturn 3 Blu-ray Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(December 10, 2013)
In my days of working at numerous video stores, I always came across the film Saturn 3. After all, how could I not? Just look at the box (below). It has an obvious sci-fi element to it and with that weird robot, it beckons a viewing, right? Well, no one I

The Winter of '83: Scarface by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(December 10, 2013)
Is there a bigger WTF movie in existence than Scarface? Is there a movie that makes you clutch your forehead like that audience in The Producers and wonder aloud just what these people were thinking? That it was made at all is some kind of mutant miracle.

DVD Shopping Bag: The Lone Ranger Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(December 10, 2013)


The Winter of '83: Christine by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(December 09, 2013)
No one would confuse Christine as the best effort of anyone involved. Not author Stephen King, who hit upon a brilliant notion and then struggled to bring it to conclusion, and not director John Carpenter, who adapted an uneven text to equally uneven resul

WOLVERINE VS. SABRETOOTH Coming in January by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(December 08, 2013)


FAST & FURIOUS 6 Proceeds Benefit Paul Walkers Charities by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(December 04, 2013)


The Ghost and Mrs. Muir Blu-ray Review by Kimberly McCall, Contributing Writer
(December 03, 2013)
Just in time for the start of the holiday season, Twentieth Century Fox has released a classic, ghostly love story to Blu-ray. “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir”, starring Rex Harrison and Gene Tierney, was adapted from the well loved British novel by R.A. Di

Mania Interview: James Mangold by Rob Vaux, Writer
(December 03, 2013)
James Mangold has enjoyed a career of remarkable versatility, directing such eclectic efforts as Cop Land, Girl, Interrupted, 3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, Identity and Kate and Leopold. That versatility made him the perfect choice to helm The Wolverine, wh

DVD Shopping Bag: Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(December 03, 2013)


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition Blu-Ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(December 01, 2013)


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


Maniac Cop 3 Blu-ray Review by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(November 22, 2013)
Maniac Cop 3 is a surprisingly enjoyable monster mash. Having never really paid much attention to its accompanying behind the scenes drama, I didn't even recall that the director credits lists not William Lustig but Alan Smithe (a common pseudonym used whe

Winter of '83: Amityville 3-D by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(November 19, 2013)
In my reviews, I sometimes talk about characters afflicted with The Stupids: engaging in activities that no rational human being would undertake solely because there would be no movie otherwise. Amityville 3-D is a graduate lesson on The Stupids, which run

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.

Winter of '83: A Christmas Story by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(November 18, 2013)
It's hard to determine exactly why or how A Christmas Story became a holiday classic. Oh, it's well made and well-oiled, with a broad-based appeal that speaks to a large swath of people. But why exactly? That gets harder to pin down. Something like, say, H

DOCTOR WHO: THE TERROR OF THE ZYGONS Review by Kimberly McCall, Contributing Writer
(November 18, 2013)
With the “Day of the Doctor” almost upon us, it is a prime moment to venture back in time and catch up on some of the original sighings of great villains you might have missed.

The Worlds End Blu-ray Review by Chuck Francisco , Columnist and Critic
(November 15, 2013)
Oh my goodness- The World's End. If there is a more meticulously constructed film that's been released this year, I can't find it. Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg assembled a perfect homunculus of a script, replete with concentric rings of foreshadowing and pl

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


Eve of Destruction Blu-ray Review by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(November 11, 2013)
The late 80's to early 90's were rife with Terminator inspired tales of cyborg killers out of control. Some dipped their toes in blatant rip off territory (Lady Terminator, Exterminator), while a significant score more simply aped the style for their promo

Maniac Cop 2 Blu-ray Review by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(November 11, 2013)
Maniac Cop 2 bears the sort of title that screams out to adolescents searching for something brazen among the wire racks of a video store. It's quite fitting then that as the final chain video rental stores collapse under the their own antiquated corpulenc

Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United Arrives by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(November 07, 2013)
We have long been teased with the animated feature Marvel’s Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United! Well it looks like we will have a little post Thor: The Dark World desert and something to hold us over until CaptainAmerica: The Winter Solider arrives. We have
