|27 Dresses (Blu-Ray)|
Here is another romantic comedy that is so full of stereotypes that it hurts. Poorly conceived and executed "27 Dresses" is just an overall disappointment.
|30 Days Of Night (Blu-Ray)|
A vampire story in the isolation of Alaska, "30 Days Of Night" plays up many of the genre clichés but gives it a cool new look. Not the best of horror films, but not bad either.
A sales record breaker, "300" is an amazing special effects film that is wowing high definition owners around the country. Chris Thompson took a close look at what it's all about.
Mel Gibson's "Apocalypto" is a mesmerizing movie that is daring, different and extremely violent. Telling a story set in the ancient culture of the Maya, this film is unlike anything you have seen before. It is utterly impressive!
|Appleseed:Ex Machina (Blu-Ray)|
An animated Japanese movie, inspired by John Woo's style, this science fiction story has a lot going for it, but also some bad sides as Chris Thompson found out when he checked out the Blu-Ray version of the film.
|The Aviator (HD-DVD)|
Martin Scorsese's bio-pic about legendary genius Howard Hughes is returning to home video in staggering high def versions. Chris Thomspon took a look at the HD-DVD version for you.
|Be Kind Rewind (Blu-Ray)|
This is a quirky comedy that has love for movies in every frame. While it may not be a total laughfest, it is a truly charming film with some great and funny moments.
|Becoming Jane (Blu-Ray)|
Loosely based on Jane Austen's life, "Becoming Jane" is an engaging film that has now arrived in high definition.
The first and only feature film by music-video director Hype Williams, this film is a cool experiment that succeeds on some levels , but also falls short on others. Nonetheless, Hip Hop fans will love this film for what it is.
|The Big Lebowski (HD-DVD)|
One of the most beloved films by the Coen Brothers is now available in high definition also. Chris Thompsontook a close look at this release , which also happens to be one of his most favorite films.
|Black Snake Moan (HD-DVD)|
From the director of "Hustle & Flow" comes this new movie. It is an unexpected mix of genres and characters that is every bit as engaging as movies get. Read more detail in Chris Thompson's full review.
|Blood Diamond (Blu-Ray)|
Powerful and deserving all the accolades it has received, Edward Zwick's "Blood diamond" is a thrill-ride with a strong social commentary. Don't miss it as it is now available on Blu-Ray Disc also.
|Bonnie and Clyde (HD-DVD)|
As HD-DVD releases begin to slow to a trickle, we decided to give "Bonnie & Clyde" a thorough check-up. Here's what Chris Thompson has to say about the release.
|The Bourne Ultimatum (HD-DVD)|
The third part in the Bourne-series of action thrillers manages to put a remarkable end to the series of the spy in search of his own identity. Superbly paced and plotted this is a true high definition highlight no to be missed!
|Celine Dion: A New Day (Blu-Ray)|
Say what you want. Like her or not, but this concert production from Las Vegas is a staggering and mesmerizing tribute to imagination and music. Colorful and bombastic it is a concert like none you may have seen before. After all, it is Vegas, Baby!
To some it's just a horribly misguided movie, to others a revelation. Chris Thompson checked out the Blu-Ray version of this film and tells you in detail what he thinks about it.
|College Road Trip (Blu-Ray)|
Firmly targeted at a teenage girl audience, this film has its genre appeals, but for most of us it simply seems as if Martin Lawrence is losing his comedic bite.
|The Cowboys (HD-DVD)|
Another great film starring the Duke has made its high definition debut and Chris Thompson gave it a thorough check-up. Read what he has to say about it.
|Cruel Intentions (Blu-Ray)|
This is a film that caters to a certain audience, and one audience only. The rest of us won't even have to bother with this poor attempt at a teenage sexy thriller. Still for fans of the movie, this Blu-Ray version is probably as good as it gets.
|Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds Live at Radio City (Blu-Ray)|
Hands down the best music release in high defintion bar none, Chris Thompson was absolutely blown away by this release from Sony Music. and that, even though he's not even a Dave Matthews fan. But he's seen the future of high definition music presentations.
