Ghosts of the Abyss Blu-ray 3D Review

Ghosts of the Abyss Blu-ray 3D

Apparently James Cameron’s first love is water. With The Abyss and Titanic already under his belt already, supposedly Avatar 2 is headed for an underwater environment as well. Fortunately, Cameron’s second love is investing the money he’s made from those (and other) movies right back into his aqueous hobby, as evidenced with Ghosts of the Abyss, which Disney recently released on Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray. A documentary of the Titanic itself, Ghosts of the Abyss marks the first time Cameron traveled back to the ill-fated ocean liner since he made … [Read more...]

Disney’s John Carter Blu-ray 3D Review

Disney's John Carter Blu-ray 3D

I didn’t get a chance to see John Carter in the theaters, but by box-office accounts, I wasn’t the only one. Panned for multiple reasons, Disney’s John Carter left theaters pretty quickly -- to the point that one of Disney’s highest executives resigned -- and then promptly released on Blu-ray 3D. Curious rubberneckers suddenly had the chance to watch John Carter for themselves, without fear of being seen by friends, to either look at the trainwreck or question what all the trashing was for. Having watched John Carter on Blu-ray 3D, I find … [Read more...]

Fright Night 3D Blu-ray Review

Fright Night 3D Blu-ray

Colin Farrell has a decent resume, and his supporting cast in Fright Night aren’t exactly chumps, which makes it all the more confusing as to why I wasted 90 minutes watching one of the worst 3D Blu-ray movies ever released. Fright Night is a reimagined version of the 1985 classic, but it’s been reimagined to such a degree that the term “classic” will never be uttered again in the same sentence. Fright Night follows a boy named Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin), who discovers that not only is his neighbor Jerry (Colin Ferrell) a vampire, but … [Read more...]

Pritect Kinect Sensor Cover Review

Pritect Kinect Sensor Cover

The Xbox Kinect is a powerful piece of hardware, with a three-camera setup that's led to a host of unique non-gaming experiments and a handful of great gameplay experiences. Yet with those three cameras pointed straight at the living room, more than a few people have wondered aloud about just how much the all-knowing Microsoft is actually seeing/watching when the Xbox 360 is turned off. After all, just because the green light is off, is the system really asleep? It's with that (overly paranoid?) question in mind that the Pritect Kinect … [Read more...]

Samsung Unveils 2012 LED, Smart TV Lineup

Samsung Smart TV Gesture Controls

With all the excitement surrounding Samsung's Galaxy Note -- and with good reason, mind you -- it's tempting to forget about Samsung's home entertainment division. You know, the one anchored by HDTVs, 3D TVs, Blu-ray players and, now, Smart TVs. Samsung has been on a roll recently, establishing itself at or near the top of the TV pack, and today's unveiling of their 2012 home entertainment lineup appears to help the company continue that momentum through the end of Q1 and well into the rest of the calendar year. Samsung's 2012 home … [Read more...]

Impression 10 Android Tablet Review

Impression 10 Android tablet

Tablets have taken America and Western Europe by storm, a blaze that Apple began with the first iPad, Google fueled with its Android OS and Amazon whipped-up into a virtual forest fire of handheld computing goodness with the Android-based Kindle Fire last holiday. Amid the tablet fever, a company called Leader International released a new 10-inch tablet called the Impression 10, an Android-based system that seems to have all the inputs, outputs and affordability to make you stand up and take note. There's just one little problem: it doesn't … [Read more...]
