Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 No Comments

I’ve played a handful of Kirby games in my day, and I think it’s safe to say that Kirby is not synonymous with difficult. In fact, it’s actually closely related to easy. But easy doesn’t mean bad. Sure Kirby’s Return to Dream Land doesn’t offer a challenging experience, but it’s not meant to be. It’s […]

Four Weddings and a Funeral

Four Weddings and a Funeral (Blu-ray)

Friday, August 5, 2011 No Comments

Four Weddings and a Funeral, a dry British romantic comedy, was charming, nicely written, delightfully acted and, well, neat. The one thing I didn’t get was how the same group of people were invited to all the events. But that doesn’t really matter. With regards to comedy, it had its moments, but I don’t think […]

I’m not sure why Kirby’s Epic Yarn has Kirby in it. Sure it looks like him, and some of the other characters and sounds are from the Kirby games, but Kirby has a vastly different set of abilities. So, in reality, it’s not really the Kirby we all know. But, honestly, I don’t mind this […]

Despicable Me stealing its way to your home December 14

Thursday, September 23, 2010 No Comments

Despicable Me, a fairly delightful and charming movie , is making its way to DVD, DVD double pack, Blu-ray combo pack and Blu-ray 3D combo pack December 14th. Holy moly, that is a lot of variation! The only thing I don’t see on this list, and rarely see for that matter, is a standalone Blu-ray […]

Julie & Julia

Monday, March 1, 2010 2 Comments

Julie & Julia was, in a word, adorable. The story was effervescent and humorous and both Meryl Streep and Amy Adams were delightful to watch. Unfortunately, there was no dramatic intrigue. There was nothing to grab at my heartstrings, to take me on a theatrical journey through the intimate lives of the characters. There were […]
