DVD Shopping Bag: Green Lantern Extended Version Isn't Worth It by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(October 11, 2011)
If you are looking for the ins and outs of the Green Lantern Extended version, you won’t find them here. In all honesty, I really don’t want to give the film any more of my time. Could a few more scenes here and there really make a difference?

TV Wasteland: Zombies!!! by Rob Vaux, Editor
(October 09, 2011)
All too quickly, the TV season has faded into ashen disappointment. Terra Nova blows, American Horror Story is… not right, and while the Friday night smorgasboard has some tasty tidbits, they’re not exactly blowing anyone out of the water in the rating

DVD Shopping Bag: Pulp Fiction Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(October 04, 2011)
Welcome to October. It is the month where horror films rule. Sadly, this is not the DVD Shopping Bag I wanted to begin with. The Walking Dead: the Complete First Season 3-Disc Special Edition Blu-ray did not arrive in time. Instead a modern classic showed

TV Wasteland: Bring Out the Gimp by Rob Vaux, Editor
(October 02, 2011)
Way back in the early 90s, ABC changed television history by giving David Lynch a budget and telling him to go nuts. He did, and the results (a little number called Twin Peaks) have yet to be duplicated. It allowed other alternative shows like Lost and Des

DVD Shopping Bag: Ben Hur 50th Anniversary Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(September 27, 2011)
The 50th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition of Ben-Hur arrives on Blu-ray today; a film that held the record for Academy Awards until James Cameron’s Titanic came along. This is an “epic” film in every sense of the word. It is an old Hollywood

TV Wasteland: Steven Spielberg Presents Land of the Lost by Rob Vaux, Editor
(September 25, 2011)
The biggest gamble of the season lands on Fox Monday as Steven Spielberg unveils a new dino-centric series that could make or break genre programming for years to come. Terra Nova posits a time-travel scenario where future residents of a ravaged Earth jour

DVD Shopping Bag: Citizens Kane and Star Wars Blu-rays by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(September 20, 2011)
With this week being an oh-hum list of dull titles (the best of which being Dumbo) I thought we would look back at the previous week’s titles. Two huge movies arrived on Blu-ray for the first time ever last week. Star Wars the complete Saga arrived with

TV Wasteland: Empire Rising by Rob Vaux, Editor
(September 18, 2011)
This week sees the premiere of a huge number of new shows, including Nikita, Supernatural, Fringe and The Big Bang Theory. But one stands head and shoulders above the rest… and while it’s definitely not genre, we want to give it a shout-out because it

DVD Shopping Bag: Doctor Who: Day of the Daleks by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(September 13, 2011)
Sorry loyal readers, but there is no review or look into the Star Wars Saga on Blu-ray. I, like you, have to wait until this Friday to pick up my copy. Sure, many of us are already screaming “No” and blinking our eyes in disbelief at all the new change

TV Wasteland: Insert Juvenile Sexual Reference Here by Rob Vaux, Editor
(September 11, 2011)
The CW is out to keep the teenybopper sensibilities of Twilight alive with The Secret Circle, a new show about a special young woman (Britt Robertson) who realizes that she’s a witch. If that sets your eyes rolling, you’re not alone. The Secret Circle

DVD Shopping Bag: Scarface, Hanna, X-Men and House 2? by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(September 06, 2011)
For this week’s DVD Shopping Bag, we are providing several interesting suggestions (one of which I need convincing on). The no brainer of the week is Mathew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class. Hopefully, the powers that be see the potential and profit for a s

TV Wasteland: They’re Remaking What?! by Rob Vaux, Editor
(September 04, 2011)
I hate to keep kicking NBC, but they make it so easy. Case in point: this week, they greenlit a TV version of Romancing the Stone: following romance novelist turned adventuress Joan Wilder as she continues to traipse around the world with dashing rogue Jac

(August 31, 2011)

Fall TV Preview by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(August 31, 2011)
Fall TV is here, filled with earnest hopes, high ambitions and a strong array of returning series… oh wait, that was last year. Before the bloodbath. Before genre television got kicked square in the nuts and was sent reeling back to the dark corner from

Death Valley: Mania TV Review by Rob Vaux
(August 30, 2011)
Color me underwhelmed. Though Death Valley displays ambition and potential, it also demonstrates how hard it can be to successfully combine horror and comedy… mainly by failing at both halves of the equation. It’s neither scary enough to make for an ef

TV Wasteland: Into the Valley of Death by Rob Vaux, Editor
(August 28, 2011)
It’s a little early, but the fall TV season gets a quick start this Monday as MTV premieres a new horror-comedy show, Death Valley. The premise, like a lot of shows, borrows heavily from other successful series: a little bit of Cops, a little bit of True

TV Wasteland: Tampa Sets the Tone by Rob Vaux, Writer
(August 27, 2011)
The Republicans are hosting their election-year shindig down in Tampa, which keeps a comparative lid on anything else this week. Our examination of the remainder awaits you below.

MTV Keeps Horror Train Rolling with Death Valley
(August 27, 2011)

DVD Shopping Bag: Norwegian Ninja by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(August 23, 2011)
Movie trailers are the most powerful tool a studio or a distributor has in marketing a film. Many will complain that the art of the movie trailer has long since passed. Today, it seems as if the audience must be shown every single good moment, funny joke,

TV Wasteland: Who’s Coming Back by Rob Vaux, Editor
(August 22, 2011)
Doctor Who returns to our fair shores once again, for the conclusion of Series 6 of the reboot (which is actually Series 40 bajillion or thereabouts for the world’s longest-running science fiction series). Good news for Whovians and sci-fi fans in genera

DVD Shopping Bag: Batman The Brave and the Bold Season 2 by Robert T. Trate, Columnist
(August 16, 2011)
Warner Brother’s is releasing the first part of their second season of Batman The Brave and the Bold. Why this part one and part two split is beyond me. The series is into its third season with new episodes already airing. Again, I would love to bitch ab

TV Wasteland: Schwarzenegger is Here to Save Us! by Rob Vaux, Editor
(August 14, 2011)
So they’re really going ahead with this Conan remake aren’t they? Man, that’s so depressing I could just about die. Maybe TV can assuage the pain… let’s see what’s on.
