New on DVD and Blu-Ray: June 5, 2012

So I've got some catching up to do around these parts, but I aim to do it. While the DVDs at this time of the year will almost certainly leave you cinematically fulfilled, there is…

New on DVD and Blu-Ray: Jan. 10, 2012

This week has certainly kicked off the awards season. While both the People's Choice Awards and the Critic's Choice Awards popping up, I find myself more intrigued by an earlier announcement, the DGA nominations. As…

New on DVD and Blu-Ray: Jan. 3, 2012

With our top tens rolling and the end of the year review rolling out, this marks the first DVD post of 2012. To be perfectly honest, it kind of sucks. Instead of serving as a…

2011 IN REVIEW: Davin’s Top Ten

Well, 2011 is officially gone. And to most cinephiles this is a sad occasion. Last year I may have pre-emptively labelled 2010 an excellent year. This is not to say that it was not without…

REVIEW: ‘Young Adult’ (2011)

Grade: A- Ever since Thank You For Smoking introduced us to the talent that is Jason Reitman (the son of '80s comedy legend, Ivan Reitman), I've found myself more intrigued with his skill as a…

New on DVD and Blu-Ray: December 20, 2011

The whirlwind of critics awards and other precursors is bound to leave any Oscar hound's head spinning this week. I am personally loving the somewhat unlikely ambiguity of this season. While we may finally have a…

DVD REVIEW: ‘The Tree of Life’

Grade: B First we see a small extraction from the book of Job about the creation of the universe and the power held within that, which the individual lacks. Then there i a soft and…

New on DVD and Blu-Ray: October 25, 2011

This year has been somewhat odd from my perspective. Particularly lately. Mainstream audincs got an unusual exposur to some high-quality cinema in a small bubble in th middle of september. Drive, Moneyball, The Ides of…

New on DVD and Blu-Ray: October 11, 2011

Today I watched both Fellini's Amarcord and Lars Von Trier's Dogville on a big screen. Sometimes I think seeing great films is purely a depressing matter due to how even very good films seem to pale in…

DVD REVIEW: ‘Submarine’

Grade: A Submarine is a peculiar title that I have yet to pinpoint for myself. But I look forward to many repeat viewings to allow me to do just that. As the film opens, we immediately…

DVD REVIEW: ‘X-Men: First Class’

Grade: C+ I have always enjoyed the X-Men films. But they are mere enjoyment when they could be so much more. The concept of random mutation as the next step in human evolution is an excellent…

New on DVD and Blu-Ray: October 4, 2011

Admittedly the theatrical releases are currently more exciting than their DVD counterparts. However, one could always do worse than eat a bag of popcorn and re-watch Bridesmaids or X-Men: First Class. And frankly, I have my…

DVD REVIEW: ‘Thor’

Grade: B- I must admit that I watched (or experienced) Drive in between watching Thor and reviewing Thor. Seeing Drive had a similar effect on me that fighting had on Edward Norton in Fight Club. I feel like…

New on DVD and Blu-Ray: September 13, 2011

The above picture holds a statement that makes me feel quite optimistic about DVD reviews in the net few months. It is the Rotten Tomatoes depiction of the current DVD standings. Three of the five…
