Warner Bros. Gravity Coming to Blu-ray 3D Next Week

Blu-ray Disc logo

Star gazers noticed last night an asteroid whiz by Earth at a surprisingly close distance. Cosmically speaking, that is. But it got us thinking: flying space rocks. Possible disaster. Life flashing before our eyes. Warner Bros. Gravity is coming out on Blu-ray 3D next week. So, in case your brain works just as randomly and had forgotten about the movie's retail release date being so imminent, consider this your reminder. Click here to pre-order Gravity from Amazon. Seeing Warner Bros. Gravity in 3D in the theater was nothing short of … [Read more...]

Cars 2 The Video Game

While we all think about racing into the holiday shopping season, let's take a break and consider another type of race, shall we?

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...]

Peter Gabriel: New Blood – Live in London Blu-ray 3D Review

Peter Gabriel: New Blood - Live in London Blu-ray 3D

Peter Gabriel has more “quirky” songs that have gone mainstream than perhaps any musician, highlighted by “Sledgehammer,” and his movie-soundtrack work has ingratiated him with multiple generations (“In Your Eyes” from Say Anything, and “Love Town” from Philadelphia). Yet it’s Gabriel’s desire to try new things, be it unique topics, innovative sounds or, in the case of his newest recoded concert, cutting-edge technology, that have helped him stand apart as a solo artist since breaking from Genesis in the 1980s. Peter Gabriel: New Blood - Live … [Read more...]

The Smurfs Blu-ray 3D Review

The Smurfs Blu-ray 3D

I am a child of the ‘80s. Memories of my childhood include The A-Team, Battlestar Galactica (the original), Buck Rogers in the 21st Century and The Smurfs -- and that was just Saturday’s TV lineup. Hearing that The Smurfs were making a theatrical comeback with Doogie Howser, er, Neil Patrick Harris, in a lead role stirred-up mixed emotions. On one hand, watching The Smurfs could be a great trip down memory lane, and Hank Azaria as Gargamel could inject a nice dose of slapstick. On the other hand, mixing live-action and animation often … [Read more...]

LG CES 2012 Press Conference and Booth Overview

LG CES 2012 Press Conference and Booth Overview

Home to the first press conference of CES 2012, LG Electronics tried to be the pace car for the rest of the day’s (and show's) proceedings. No matter how hard a slew of bad jokes tried to bring them down, LG largely succeeded with enough innovative products to justifiably own your entire home electronics ecosystem. They covered essentially everything from the man cave (nice TVs) to family essentials (smart appliances) to the everyday (smartphones), and I came away impressed each time. LG’s 3D Cinema line of 3D TVs was the most-popular 3D TV … [Read more...]

Toy Story 3 Blu-ray 3D Review

Toy Story 3 Blu-ray 3D

As a parent, I find Toy Story 3 to be an incredibly sad movie. Well scripted, meaningful and great, to be sure, but emotional and sad nonetheless. As a so-called graphics whore, I find Toy Story 3 to be one of 2011’s benchmark CG films, with animations and textures so refined they’d make granular sugar cry. Yet as a fan of the Blu-ray 3D format, I find Toy Story 3 to be a bit disappointing. The technological jump from the first to second film was remarkable, as I noted in my Toy Story 2 Blu-ray 3D review, and the impact of those improvements … [Read more...]
