Review: "Mary Poppins" 50th Anniversary Blu-ray - It's a Jolly Holiday with Blu-ray

Mary Poppins Blu-ray 50th Anniversary

Like its title character, Mary Poppins is practically perfect in every way: its cast, its beautifully balanced blend of comedy and drama, its costuming and sets, and the catchy tunes by the Sherman Brothers. It’s a kids movie that runs nearly two-and-a-half hours, but also one that flies by, never dragging and never flagging once […]

Review: "The Smurfs 2" - Not Smurfin' Awful But Not Smurftacular

Smurfs 2 Thumbnail

When The Smurfs live-action/CG animation film was announced, there was a sizable portion of the original show’s fanbase that considered it an abomination. Despite that backlash, it made a ton of money, so it must’ve done something right. I suspect that many of its viewers had never seen the original cartoon, so this was their […]

Call of Duty: Ghosts Review (Xbox 360)

COD Ghosts_Beware of Shark Current Gen

Call of Duty: Ghosts, the latest installment in the now-10-year-old franchise, elicited the most polarizing feelings I’ve experienced since Treyarch’s World at War in 2008. I was impressed by several aspects in the newest installment and was severely let down by others. For every positive, Infinity Ward’s Ghosts there seemed to be a negative in both campaign and […]

Review: "One Piece Uncut Collections 1-4 (UK Editions)": See Pirates at their Best!

One Piece UK Complete Collection 1-4

When it comes to reviewing any product, it is good to know that the review is impartial, honest, and objective; looking at the product with fresh, critical eyes and, in turn, guiding the reader through a fair appraisal of that said product. I think any reviewer worth his bag of chips would stand by that, […]

Review: "We Without Wings" Complete Series: Needs Flying Lessons

We Without Wings

There’s nothing worse than untapped potential. We Without Wings: Under the Innocent Sky falls into this category; it’s one of the most frustrating anime series I’ve watched as of late. I say it’s frustrating because the premise is actually pretty cool and inventive: A guy has the ability to travel dimensions, thus occupying four different […]

Call of Duty: Ghosts Review (PS3)

Call of Duty Ghosts Review - Homecoming Current Gen

Call of Duty: Ghosts – Campaign Mode What do Superman Returns and Call of Duty: Ghosts have in common? Brandon Routh and an apocalyptic storyline. Ghosts’ plot is almost as unbelievable as Lex Luthor using a one-foot crystal to create a new land mass. Nevertheless, the gameplay in Call of Duty: Ghosts is fun and […]

Review: "Frozen" - Disney Marketing, Meet Me at Camera 2

thumb-frozen

Quick, someone tell me what Disney’s new animated movie Frozen is about.  If you said, “a wacky, slapstick adventure through a snowy place that somehow involves a woman who can freeze things, a lunkhead with a sled, and a talking snowman called Olaf,” congratulations: you’ve seen any/all of the ads that Disney has made for […]

Review: "Sanjay and Craig" (UK) - Comedy with Crossover Appeal

thumb-sanjaycraiguk

There’s a lot of crossover with older viewers for action animation but often less so with comedy cartoons. Maybe Nick’s new show Sanjay and Craig can change that. As the quick and catchy opening song explains, the series focuses on an Indian-American boy named Sanjay who finds a talking snake named Craig in the local […]
