    Official DVD and Blu-ray Reviews
    One of the benefits of having kids or grandkids is being able to enjoy the guilty pleasure of watching cartoons, or the more popular computer generated animation. I have to admit that I am a big fan of Aladdin and have even watched it without kids being around, same goes for The Incredibles...

    I'm a big David Fincher fan. Movies like Seven, Fight Club and Panic Room are some of my favorite flims. In Zodiac, Fincher once again demonstrates his greate story telling abilities. Usually the term, "period piece" is reserved for movies taking place in before the early 1900s. But, Fincher...
