Shazam! 4K UHD Review: A BIG Win For DC

The Movie

Out of all the releases in the DC Cinematic Universe thus far, Shazam! is easily the most enjoyable. While Wonder Woman remains the best modern DC film to date, the latest outing isn’t far behind.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Blu-Ray Review

The Movie

Ever since the release of the original How To Train Your Dragon back in 2010, the unlikely animated series has remained Dreamworks Animation’s flagship franchise.

‘Alien: Covenant’ Blu-Ray Review

The Movie:

In concept, ‘Alien: Covenant‘ is what ‘Prometheus‘ should have been. In many regards, the film is a vast improvement over it’s predecessor. It’s also better than many people are giving it credit for. Instead of focusing more on the philosophical aspects of the story, this film is a straight up Alien movie, and that’s a good thing. Unlike it’s predecessor, ‘Alien: Covenant‘ feels like it’s a return …
