Walking Dead Season 4 Blu-ray Release Date by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(April 01, 2014)


The Spring of '84: Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(April 01, 2014)
I'm not sure why someone decided to deliver a new version of the Tarzan story as a stodgy period drama, but by God someone did. And not half badly either. Though devoid of the pulp sense of wonder that the character thrives on, the serious-as-a-heart-attac

Odd Thomas: Blu-Ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(April 01, 2014)
Odd Thomas is based upon the 2003 Dean Koontz novel of the same name which since has spawned five sequel books. The film had a limited theatrical release before being released on home video. Director Stephen Sommers, most known for big budget films The M

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: Green Lantern The Animated Series by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(April 01, 2014)


The Spring of '84: Romancing the Stone by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(March 31, 2014)
Romancing the Stone was originally fed to us as another Raiders of the Lost Ark rip-off, its posters and commercials promising a modern-day variant on Indiana Jones. That does the movie a great disservice. Director Robert Zemeckis -- demonstrating one agai

HARRY POTTER HOGWARTS COLLECTION Release Date by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(March 25, 2014)


Doctor Who: The Moonbase DVD Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(March 25, 2014)


Avengers Confidential: Black Widow and The Punisher Blu-Ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(March 25, 2014)
While Marvel has enjoyed tremendous success with their big screen theatrical films, they have lagged in recent years when it comes to animated features. Marvel had partnered with Lionsgate to produce eight, direct-to-video films from 2006 – 2011. In 20

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: Criterion Collection - Hidden Fortress by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(March 25, 2014)


The Spring of '84: Police Academy by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(March 24, 2014)
I’m not sure what I was expecting when I sat down to watch Police Academy for the first time since getting my driver’s license. I’ve talked before in these articles about rose-colored glasses and how ugly things can be when you remove them. Police Ac

Shock-O-Rama: Worst Ways to Die by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(March 19, 2014)
Horror movie fans have borne witness to some of the most heinous acts ever to be inflicted upon the human form (fictionally). It's an inevitability of the genre. Of course as the audience becomes anesthetized to the splash, slash, and screams, a grisly gam

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: Monsters: The Complete Series by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(March 18, 2014)


The Spring of '84: The Ice Pirates by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(March 17, 2014)
There was a time in life when we thought certain jokes were very grown-up and mature. Like space herpes. Hey, herpes is a sex disease and putting it in outer space? Only fully-formed adults would think that up! The same goes with gags about castration and

Shock-O-Rama: Strip Nude for Your Killer by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(March 12, 2014)
It may be impossible to find a film titled more aptly for discussion on Shock-O-Rama. As pleasantly resonant off of the tongue as it is a soothing balm to the tender tissue of the ear drums, this movie's American theatrical designation is the perfectly for

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: Doctor Who - Time of the Doctor by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(March 11, 2014)


The Spring of '84: Children of the Corn by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(March 11, 2014)
Hollywood's obsession with Stephen King has produced some great movies. Children of the Corn is not one of them. It starts out with a brief short story as inspiration, then stretches it like saltwater taffy in order to support a 90-minute running time. You

The Spring of '84: Splash by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(March 10, 2014)
Funny how filmmakers who feel the need to earn “respectability” never seem quite as good as they did in their early works. Ron Howard’s quest for artistic legitimacy made him a paragon of middlebrow Oscar bait long ago: a good director who would do a

The Shadow Collectors Edition Blu-ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(March 10, 2014)
When I look back at the 1994 film, The Shadow I do so with one part fondness and three parts disappointment over what could have been. As a fan of The Shadow for many years I was especially enthusiastic about the production since it had been nearly 50 yea

Thor: The Dark World Blu-Ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(March 05, 2014)
Of all of the recent Marvel Comics based films Thor: The Dark World is the one that is the least…uhh…comic bookish.  In fact the film is as much Science Fantasy as anything else.  Much of the action takes place off Earth and doesn’t involve a threa

The Spring of '84: Repo Man by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(March 04, 2014)
Punk and the movies have always had an uneasy relationship at best. The anarchic sensibilities of the ultimate rebel subculture just don't sit well with the kind of money and organization required to create even the most modest piece of filmmaking. The bes

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: Hunger Games:Catching Fire by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(March 04, 2014)


The Spring of '84: This is Spinal Tap by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(March 03, 2014)
Comedies rank among the toughest movies to review properly, and the better the comedy, the harder one struggles to explain exactly how and why it works so well. In the end, all that matters is that you laugh. The best comedies make you laugh over and over,

Justice League: War Blu-ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(March 01, 2014)
At one point during Justice League: War, Green Lantern turns to Batman and calls him a “phenomenal douchebag”.  Welcome to DC Comics’ New 52 Universe where Green Lantern is an arrogant A-hole, Shazam is an obnoxious teenager, Superman leers at Wonde
