  1. The Von Trapp Family - A Life Of MusicFri, 24 Feb 2017 05:09:39 PST
    Recommended "The story of the von Trapp family's escape from Austria in 1938 to the United States is well known from The Sound of Music. This film tells the story of those dramatic years through the eyes of the eldest daughter, Agathe."This text introduces The von Trapp Family: A Life of Music which is based on Agathe von Trapp's autobiographical book "Memories Before and After The Sound of Music". Those familiar with the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical and subsequent movie that's become a perennial favorite might be asking "Who was Agathe?" but it turns out that version of the story not only sugar-coated many details but also changed some of the names- Agathe was known as Liesl in that version. This production tries to tell the story closer to the way it really happened. It us...Read the entire review More...
  2. Legend of Korra: The Complete SeriesThu, 23 Feb 2017 15:32:27 PST
    Highly Recommended The Legend of Korra: The Complete Series:When Avatar the Last Airbender debuted on Nickelodeon back in 2004, it was met with near universal acclaim from critics and audiences alike. Thanks to its diverse cast of characters, spectacularly choregraphed battles, and exhaustive world building the series resonated with adults and children of all ages. Avatar's widespread appeal wouldn't just be limited to the small screen, having transitioned into a variety of media including comics, consul games, and even a live action movie (the less said about that the better). Though the series told a comprehensive story across three seasons, the world of Avatar was ripe for further exploration.When the Legend of Korra premiered, it was instantly clear that while both series existed within the same universe, the tone and animation targeted a marginally mature demographic. Set 70 years after the events A...Read the entire review More...
  3. Blaze And The Monster Machines: Race Into VelocityvilleThu, 23 Feb 2017 11:09:55 PST
    Recommended Created by Jeff Borkin and Ellen Martin, Blaze and the Monster Machines is Nick Jr.'s breakout hit aimed at single-digit scamps who like trucks. And who doesn't like trucks, especially sentient ones? The story goes like this: Blaze (voiced by Nolan North of TMNT) and his blank-faced, curiously underage driver A.J. (Dusan Brown) are the best ...Read the entire review More...
  4. PAW Patrol: Pups Save the BunniesThu, 23 Feb 2017 09:25:00 PST
    Recommended PAW Patrol is one of Nick Jr.'s most popular shows in years, packed with all the harmless action and cornball jokes that kids and most parents can't help but snicker at. Pups Save the Bunnies is the newest themed collection of PAW Patrol episodes on disc, and it doesn't really change anything about the show's formula or characters. Most episodes go like this: the six PAW Patrol canines (klutzy firefighter Marshall, aquatic expert Zuma, construction oaf ...Read the entire review More...
  5. Beavis & Butt-Head: The Complete CollectionWed, 22 Feb 2017 16:29:55 PST
    Recommended Mike Judge has one hell of an impressive career down on paper. He's responsible for bringing the workplace hit Office Space' to the masses, and followed that up with sleeper success flicks Idiocracy, Extract, and 13 seasons of Fox's King of the Hill. The latter of which was no small feat, since that particular network has a frustrating reputation for canceling most of its best programming. I think the mentioned body of work is what Judge should be remembered for, but the masses will probably always peg him as that guy who made Beavis and Butt-head.' That's not necessarily a bad thing, either, but it's a show that tends to make people either grab their torches and pitchforks, or get whisked back to a fun youth when everyone was painfully practicing their worst mm-mm-heh' and uh-huh-huh-huh' impressions while wearing frog baseball' memorabilia. I personally fall into the latter category, and no...Read the entire review More...
  6. Danny SaysWed, 22 Feb 2017 05:05:54 PST
    Rent It The Movie:You may not know the name Danny Fields but he has been instrumental in some of history's most impactful bands of the last half of the 20th century, signing, managing or being involved with bands like The Ramones, Iggy and the Stooges, the Velvet Underground and the Doors, to name a few. The New York-based music executive is the subject of a documentary covering some of his exploits, titled Danny Says.Written and directed by Brendan Toller, the film follows in some of the same vein of music documentaries like We Are Twisted Fucking Sister, where it looks at the subject and provides interviews with them and any influential figures in their life as they try and show how the subject got to where they are. However, the film includes ample interviews with Fields at various p...Read the entire review More...

However, it doesn't get much more niche than Filipino cult films. That is, unless you zoom in a bit more, and tighten the focus to Filipino cult films starring the shortest lead actor in film history, the 2'9" Weng Weng, star ...Read the entire review More...
  8. The Twilight Zone: The Complete 80s SeriesSat, 18 Feb 2017 11:06:39 PST
    Recommended The Series:While 1983's Twilight Zone: The Movie wasn't the super mega blockbuster hit that some had hoped for, it was nevertheless enough to get CBS to bring back Rod Serling's most famous creation in 1985. This second series lasted three seasons and offered up one hundred and ten episodes. The series saw Charles Aidman step in to narrate, with Serling having passed in 1975. When Aidman himself passed away, Robin Ward was brought on to narrate the third season (he also redid the narration for the first two seasons when they were syndicated, though this set thankfully contains Aidman's original voice work). When series began, each episode ran an hour in length and presented two or three stories within its running time save for a few Season Two episodes that ran a half an hour. When a third season was made and put out for syndication, those episodes ran a half an hour and contained ...Read the entire review More...
  9. Race for the Yankee ZephyrThu, 16 Feb 2017 04:32:56 PST
    Rent It The Movie: The 1981 adventure flick Race for the Yankee Zephyr (also known as Treasure of the Yankee Zephyr) first caught my eye when it was excerpted in the "Ozploitation" documentary Not Quite Hollywood. It wasn't available on US DVD in those late-'00s dark ages, so I filed it away in my mind as a flick to keep an eye out for. Now, at long last, MGM has released a DVD-R of the movie, with a decent-looking transfer, as part of their manufactured-on-demand (MOD) "Limited Edition Collection." Was it worth the wait? Eh...Yankee Zephyr was originally supposed to re-team writer Everett De Roche and director Richard Franklin, who toget...Read the entire review More...
  10. The Love Boat: Season Three, Volume OneWed, 15 Feb 2017 05:35:09 PST
    Recommended Though probably few would admit it now, back in the late 1970s pretty much everyone not on a date or otherwise engaged on a Saturday night tuned in to ABC's one-two punch of The Love Boat at 9:00 and Fantasy Island at 10:00pm. Though often unpardonably corny and melodramatic, The Love Boat was also daringly innovative from a production standpoint, lured big-name stars that rarely made television appearances, and so glamorized and exoticized cruise vacations that it singlehandedly transformed that industry into the leisure industry powerhouse it is today. Seen today, the series is quaintly charming, still. The show more or less peaked during its third season, its ratings success prompting an elaborate two-hour premiere, mostly filmed on location in Alaska. Rewatching these shows after nearly 40 years, I was unexpectedly impressed by most of the regular cast members and its dizzyi...Read the entire review More...
