DVD Review JACK REACHER
Suffers from a multitude of problems including lack of charisma and drama. Tom Cruise is not a good fit in the Salvation Army clothes of military cop turned heroic drifter, Jack Reacher. Rental only and you really might as well wait for it be on TBS.
Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway star in this stunningly realized interpretation of Victor Hugo's epic tale of broken dreams, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the endurance of the human spirit. This cinematic event can now be experienced over and over again.

DVD Review THE DUELLISTS (BLU-RAY)
I'm not sure how this, Ridley Scott's first film, never made it onto my radar, but what better way to watch it for the first time than via this potentially excellent new Blu-ray disc from Shout Factory.
DVD Review FIGHTVILLE (BLU-RAY)
I am far from a fan of Mixed Martial Arts, but I do love a good documentary film, regardless of the subject. Good word of mouth has me thinking that this flick could be just that.
Mixed Martial Arts has fought its way to the forefront of American sports, and now the real-life story of the fighters striving to make it to the top. Over the past decade, Mixed Martial Arts has grown from a controversial, no-holds-barred sideshow into a billion-dollar phenomenon eclipsing boxing as the dominant combat sport in the world.
Delivered the highly anticipated continuation of the epic series giving audiences even more spectacle, sex, swords and scandal! Liam McIntyre takes on the role of Spartacus, with Lucy Lawless reprising her role as Lucretia. Peter Mensah returns as Oenomaus, Manu Bennett as Crixus, Dustin Clare as Gannicus and Craig Parker as the cruel Gaius Claudius Glaber.
From the director of Revenge of the Nerds, and it's easily the most outrageous parody in years. Horny King Looney of Troy (Rip Torn) sends slacker general Awesomest Maximus (Will Sasso) to maintain peace with rival King Erotic of Greece. But when Prince Orlando, who's more into fashion than fighting, steals the King's wife Ellen (Sophie Monk) to be his BFF, it's war! Will Awesomest live up to his godly destiny? Can he defeat the mighty warrior Testiclees (Ian Ziering)?
On the eve of his high school graduation, Will Kidman (Liboiron) finally looks up from his books to catch the eye of the girl he's longed for the last four years -the mysterious Eliana Wynter (Shaw). He's always been the shy kid, flying under the radar, but when he discovers a dark secret from his past-- that he is heir to a powerful line of werewolves -- he finds he has a choice to make between succumbing to his primal nature, or turning against his own, and maintaining his humanity.
The two-disc collection contains a muscular amount of bonus features including never-before-seen featurettes, bloopers and behind-the-scenes footage (including a set tour with star Lucy Lawless). The Blu-ray is even mightier with extended episodes, audio commentary on all six episodes and a mind-blowing battle sequence in 3D - a first for a TV on Blu-Ray release! A sneak peek of the 3D bonus feature will happen at the STARZ booth at Comic-Con 2011 in San Diego.
By Crom! Let the acolytes of Conan rejoice as the fiercest Barbarian to ever roam the Earth arrives in this complete Season One DVD release! Join in the fray as Conan and his fellow adventurers — Jezmine, Snagg, Needle, Greywolf and Zula — quest to rescue Conan's family from an evil spell cast by the Serpent Man wizard Wrath-Amon. Armed with a powerful sword forged from Star Metal and faith in his god Crom, Conan will not stop until his family is safe and the evil wizard is reimprisoned in the mystical Abyss!
In Gods of the Arena, the 6 exhilarating episodes explore the House of Batiatus as it rises -- basking in the glow of its infamous champion Gannicus, whose skill with a sword is matched only by his thirst for wine and women. Camelot, the 10-episode epic drama, redefines the classic medieval tale of King Arthur with an exciting ensemble cast including Joseph Fiennes reimagining the iconic role of Merlin, Jamie Campbell Bower as the young and reckless Arthur, and Eva Green in her television debut as the darkly powerful Morgan.
On March 25, 1911, a catastrophic fire broke out at the Triangle Waist Company in New York City. Trapped inside the upper floors of a ten-story building, 146 workers – mostly young immigrant women and teenage girls – were burned alive or forced to jump to their deaths to escape an inferno that consumed the factory in just 18 minutes. It was the worst disaster at a workplace in New York State until 9/11.
...a thrilling, full-throttle adventure hailed as one of the best road movies of all time. Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis star as accidental outlaws on a desperate flight across the Southwest after a tragic incident at a roadside bar. With a determined detective on their trail, a sweet-talking hitchhiker in their path and a string of crimes in their wake, their journey alternates between hilarious, high-speed thrill ride and empowering personal odyssey even as the law closes in.
