‘FAST FIVE’ BLU-RAY REVIEW, HOT AND CRAZY

Fast Five on Blu-ray/DVD becomes more than just a movie when you can control the film, special bonus features and other unique apps.

THE LION KING 3D BLU-RAY, MAJESTIC

For me The Lion King 3D Blu-ray is a no-brainer, but if you are not ever planning on purchasing a 3D system it may not be for you.

DOLPHIN TALE, FAMILY WINNER

The Inspiring, moving, poignant true story Dolphin Tale splashes into theaters this weekend with a family friendly theme that’s sure to touch your heart. Filmed in Florida where it happened it’s a movie about a dolphin that receives a compassionate helping hand and a strange new lease on life.

MY AFTERNOONS WITH MARGUARITTE, CAPTIVATING

Sweet, charming and touching My Afternoons with Margueritte has what it takes when it comes to entertainment value. What makes the film so good comes from the acting of Girard Depardieu, Gisèle Casadesus and fine directing by Jean Becker.
