Blu-Review: Begin Again

Blu-Review: Begin Again
It’s a romantic movie that’s less about the ‘will they/won’t they?’ of its dreamy leads and more about their shared love of music. The cliché-dodging result is an infectiously sweet feel-good film that hits a tonne of high notes...

Blu-Review: Persona 4: The Animation – Volume 1

Like its video game inspiration, Persona 4: The Animation melds monster-smashing action, surreal murder mystery and quaint, small-town slice-of-life comedy to fantastic effect, even if a few things don’t quite suit the jump from game to TV show...

Blu-Review: Casa de mi Padre

Blu-Review: Casa de mi Padre
The tone is all over the place and jokes are too few and far between for Casa De Mi Padre to be a classic on par with Anchorman or Black Dynamite, it’s still a fun enough comedy, even if it doesn’t deliver on its lofty potential...

Blu-Review: The Hunger Games

Taut, thrilling and often chilling, The Hunger Games is one of the best book-to-film adaptations in years and infinitely more deserving of it’s pop culture phenomenon status than the drudgery of Twilight...

Blu-Review: Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings

Blu-Review: Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings
Despite being filled with enough bloodshed and boobs to keep horror fans reasonably entertained, Wrong Turn 4 is a tremendously dumb film that embraces every slasher cliché without any trace of irony, topping it off with a puzzlingly pointless prequel setup that hampers the movie to no end...

Blu-Review: The Lucky One

Blu-Review: The Lucky One
It’s a safe, serviceable and predictable love story, but a swoon-worthy lead, a likeable cast and plenty of steamy chemistry between Efron and Schilling make it perfect date night viewing...

Blu-Review: The Dinosaur Project

Blu-Review: The Dinosaur Project
While it boasts some gorgeous scenery and a decent idea or two, it’s a film that squanders its potential with unbearable characters, uneven CGI and a complete absence of tension, scares or any sense of adventure...

Blu-Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season One

Blu-Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season One
The amount of work that’s gone into remastering The Next Generation visually is absolutely stunning, but the big problem with the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation is that it’s very much a show still trying to find its feet...

Blu-Review: Abduction

Blu-Review: Abduction
Those expecting an intelligent and well-written film will be sorely disappointed, as Abduction is often as dumb as a busload of Jersey Shore cast members. Even so, while it’s mindless fun, it definitely is fun thanks to a rollercoaster pace and plenty of well-staged action...

Blu-Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level

Blu-Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level
If you love The Next Generation, you’re going to be buying the full season sets anyway, so it’s a little pointless to pick this sampler disc up. If you’ve never really seen the show and are looking to test the waters before you jump in, this is a great way to do it – the series has...
