Review: Flying High with “Planes: Fire and Rescue” Blu-ray

by Ed Liuon November 4, 2014
Way back in the 1970’s, I was one of many kids who wanted to be a firefighter thanks to Emergency, an hour-long drama about Los Angeles County Fire Dept. Station 51 that aired on NBC from 1972 to 1977. Lots of kids are fascinated by firefighters and firefighting equipment, of course, but if something will […]

Review: “Hal DVD/Blu-ray Combi (UK Edition)”: Do Androids Dream Of Human Girlfriends?

by Grant Whiteon October 26, 2014
I first became aware of Wit Studio’s Hal last year, shortly after its Japanese premiere. Just a few months later I got a chance to talk to director Ryotaro Makihara, which only whet my curiosity about the film further. Just shy of a year later I am finally able to sample the film itself. Was […]

Review: “Gurren Lagann Ultimate Edition Blu-ray (UK Edition)”: Well met, fellows!

by Grant Whiteon October 21, 2014
Ah, Gurren Lagann. Arguably the jewel of the 2007 anime schedule and a show that seven years on still receives a lot of love and converts. It seemed that when the show was originally airing you couldn’t stop people from praising it. If you’re familiar with my reviews, you’ll know I often talk about the […]

Review: “Sleeping Beauty” Diamond Edition

by Todd DuBoison October 20, 2014
It is fitting that the last film of Disney’s early golden era should also be its crown jewel and so it is with 1959’s Sleeping Beauty, a late but ideal choice for Disney’s Diamond Edition line. These days a lot of digital ink gets spilled about Disney’s “princess movies” as if they were a genre onto […]

Mr. Peabody & Sherman Blu-ray and DVD Set To Emerge from Wayback Machine

by Alex Beanon October 13, 2014
The Blu-ray and DVD discs for this spring’s “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” are due to arrive tomorrow and although the movie did decent enough at the box office, the real draw for the Blu-ray and DVD versions are the extras which give out some nice golden nuggets from the show’s origin on “The Rocky & […]

Jack And His Cuckoo Clock Heart Coming To Blu-ray And DVD Next Week

by Alex Beanon September 29, 2014
With an animation style shout-out to Tim Burton, the animated French film “Jack and the Cuckoo Clock Heart” has Jack as a boy living in 1874 Edinburgh who has been given a cuckoo clock heart due to the fact that he was born on the coldest day on Earth – an event which caused his […]

Review: “Attack on Titan” Pt. 1 – Titanic Successes with Towering Flaws

by Ed Liuon September 19, 2014
Attack on Titan became a buzzword that broke out of anime fandom rapidly, attracting a lot of attention from general audiences. However, I’m left with very mixed feelings after watching the first 13 episodes on FUNimation’s Attack on Titan Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. On the one hand, the series quickly creates a richly detailed world infused […]
