The wait for more episodes of Hellsing Ultimate to come out in the U.S. has been extremely long, but after seeing these four episodes in this latest boxed set, I can honestly say that it was worth every single second!

Painted Skin: The Resurrection

Painted Skin: The Resurrection

| November 13, 2012

While there have been many Hong Kong fantasy films, like Ching Siu-Tung’s A Chinese Ghost Story and Ronny Yu’s The Bride with White Hair, I can easily say that Wuershan’s Painted Skin: The Resurrection is one of the best to come out of the country’s cinema and sets the bar extremely high for future fantasy […]

My Big Fat Greek Wedding: 10th Anniversary Edition

| November 13, 2012

Nia Vardalos’ semi-autobiographical comedy, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, took over the planet all the way back in 2002, grossing well over $350 million dollars worldwide and earning Vardalos an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay. However, run-away commercial success, at least here, is not really indicative of the film’s artistic value. My Big Fat Greek […]

Roseanne – Still Relevant and Entertaining!

Roseanne – Still Relevant and Entertaining!

| November 12, 2012

I must admit, reviewing the Roseanne show, Seasons 3 and 4, has been one of my favorite assignments thus far. Every episode is a delight, whether it’s on the light- hearted or the more dramatic side. She’s loud, she’s brash, she’s strong, she’s Roseanne Barr (Arnold)! Starring in the self- titled sitcom from 1988- 1997, […]

Lifetime Presents: 12 Days of Christmas

Lifetime Presents: 12 Days of Christmas

Christmas. The mere mention of the word evokes mental images of candy canes, snowfall, Santa and his reindeer, trees adorned with lights and baubles, and let’s face it, department store aisles lined with all manner of red,white, and green ephemera. But for me, Christmas (and any other major holiday for that matter) is really all […]

| November 9, 2012

Sometime’s, when consuming tons of media in all of its forms, people get overwhelmed and sometimes forget why they were attracted to something in the first place. In this day and age, there’s so much music, comics, video games and all sorts of other things that are nerdy and geeky that not only vie for […]
