I’ve been filled with some trepidation when it comes to the current crop of Disney animated feature films. Over the past ten-or-so years, they have become entirely formulaic stories that seem to be hatched by an auto-pilot with only one thing in [...]

It always amazes me to see how Marvel has almost reinvented itself and has managed to become one of the largest providers of blockbuster movies. No longer do they provide mere comic books to their fans, but they are exploring their entire universe in big [...]

World War II is a boundless trove of stories, filled with raw emotions and heroics, and it is hardly surprising that every few years a filmmaker decides to tell a story before this background to remind us of the humanity and inhumanity of war. Today, [...]

When Akira Kurosawa made Seven Samurai in 1954, little did he know that he was not only creating a masterpiece of a film, but also a story that would resonate so loudly across the world that it would spawn countless other stories and movies revolving [...]

Poldark: The Complete Second Season

When PBS Entertainment announced the second season of Poldark to arrive on Blu-Ray this fall, I was excited and eager to continue watching the tribulations playing out. With the television broadcast complete, now the second season of the tremendous series [...]
