Review: “Planes: Fire and Rescue” Lights My Fire

by Ed Liuon July 18, 2014
My head can rattle off numerous problems with Planes: Fire and Rescue. It’s storyline and character twists just recycle the first Planes movie. Several of the plot twists that aren’t recycled are still predictable from a mile off. It relies a bit too heavily on paper-thin stock characters, if not extremely stale ethnic stereotypes. It […]

Review: “The Legend of Korra – Book Two: Spirits” Blu-ray (Mostly) Does the Thing

by Ed Liuon July 15, 2014
