Once Upon a Time, A Magical Season on Blu-ray

One of the best series this year in my estimation Once Upon a Time: the Complete First Season has been released on Blu-ray in a box set. This fairytale has all the frills of a theatrical release including some nice special effects, commendable acting and a very good storyline. Intriguing, creative and exciting after the first few episodes it’s addictive as reading a good book, putting it down becomes very hard to do.  But, you will want to take breaks between several of the twenty-two episodes so you can do other things like eat, sleep and give the TV a rest.

Revenge: Season One, It’s Decadently Delicious

If you would like to know what retribution feels like then watch the television series Revenge, the first season’s now on DVD. So nicely crafted you would think that author Mike Kelly must have had a close encounter with a vengeance-craving woman.  Seriously though, I thought a female audience would best see the series, but after getting through the first two episodes, I got hooked.

The Three Stooges, A Scream on Blu-ray

The Woo Woo Woo, and Nyuck, Nyuck, Nyuck with all the sight gags you can handle are back and more impious than ever in The Three Stooges now in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. The very cool film had me in stitches with inane comedy that hits the top of my laughter barometer.  Although mainly a guy film, most all who can remember the knuckleheaded trio will love the insane comical antics that never seem to get old.

4:44 Last Day on Earth, on Blu-ray

Highly stylized and compelling the movie 4:44 Last Day on Earth has been released on Blu-ray.  The very dark film deals with nature’s wrath while sending a message to the failing atmosphere naysayer. Much like the recent moody Melancholia, the movie takes you on a collision course with death to all mankind.  It’s not an action film like 2012 or The Day After Tomorrow that make similar statements, but more of a strange kind of Science Fiction thriller.
