  1. New on Blu: "Long Weekend" (1978)

    When a suburban couple go camping for the weekend at a remote beach, they discover that nature is not in an accommodating mood.

    If the credits are to be believed, the crew was quite small. Considering the budget was no higher than $300,000, this is entirely possible. Interestingly, the movie is shot in widescreen, which was unusual for such a low budget.

    The investment paid off, as this film is not just a winner for its scares and its acting, but also for its use of ...
  2. Scream Factory Brings "Mad Max" to Blu! (Review)

    In a dystopian future Australia, a vicious biker gang murder a cop (Mel Gibson)'s family and make his fight with them personal.

    "Mad Max" is, without a doubt, a cult classic and a great showcase for Mel Gibson's talents (and proof that he does, indeed, have some).

  4. Game Review: MLB The Show 15



    I’m a baseball fan through and through. Being a Canadian I take my share of ribbing for ranking our national pride sport of hockey number 2 on my interest scale. But baseball has always been the sport to which I drop babies for when I catch a ballgame playing on a background television.

    I have never been much of a video game guy, but my love of baseball had me playing along a full season of The Show 09, 10, 11, 12, 13 and now 15. You might have noticed a one year ...

    I grew up in an era exemplified by gender confusion, fear, and paranoia - monsters that played out on television every night, but were more like multiple personalities every messed-up human being shared. As a child, I went sleepless well into the night, burdened by my impending doom. Missiles, in far ...
