DVD Review 2 BROKE GIRLS THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON

2 BROKE GIRLS

Sassy, brassy, crude, vulgar are some of the terms for this hilarious wise-racking comedy that is into its third season on network primetime. Here is season two where the gloves really come off. From hipsters to genitals to life in Brooklyn, no target is off limits to waitresses Max & Caroline.

DVD Review DOWNTON ABBEY SEASONS ONE & TWO LIMITED EDITION

DOWNTON ABBEY S

It is rare when something lives up to the hype. Downton Abbey is Golden Globe winning, Emmy winning and everybody is talking about it and making fun of it. It is a phenomenon that is found on public television. It is simply great fun to watch. Highly recommended.

NAZI COLLABORAT

Political opportunism is a common human trait. In World War II, many Europeans hitched their wagon the evil caravan that was Nazism. This series exposes shocking details about people who cooperated with Adolph Hitler to exploit, dominate and murder in their own countries.

DVD Review KATT WILLIAMS: KATTPACALYPSE

KATT WILLIAMS:

Kattapacalypse is pretty funny, but ultimately unsatisfying and not worthy of multiple viewings. Katt Williams is a funny dude but his material here is choppy and disjointed. He comes onto the stage like a lion abut by the end is laying down with the lambs.

DVD Review BARACK OBAMA: FROM HIS CHILDHOOD TO THE PRESIDENCY

BARACK OBAMA: F

A repackaging of a biography of Barack Obama that includes some superficial updates to attempt relevance for its release just prior to the 2012 Presidential election. Not a good effort from A&E on this. A fantastic American story of an American President deserves better.

NORMAN MAILER:

This is an often unpleasant tale of a celebrated writer that is told frankly and openly by people who knew him personally. Director Joe Mantegna weaves their commentary into a visual history of the latter half of the last century and evokes an intriguing portrait of one its most important chroniclers. Norman Mailer: The American gives a multi-faceted answer to the question: who was that guy?

DVD Review DARK SHADOWS: THE GREATEST EPISODES COLLECTION - FAN FAVORITES

DARK SHADOWS: T

Some entertainment franchises go on and on. A new movie version and a new Complete Series Collection helps keep Dark Shadows on top of the heap. Barnabas and friends chilled us as children and now reaches a whole new generation of fans in a whole new form. This sampler of nine episode drawn from the entire run of the show provides a taste of the shows recipe of mixing soap opera, Gothic horror and supernatural horror. From the angst of cursed vampire Barnabas Collins to the iron-willed witchcraft of Angelique Bouchard to the wide-eyed horror of the haunted and hunted Maggie Evans to the glib tortured soul Quentin Collins, the shows characters and themes created a rich tapestry of occult television that resonates to this day.

DVD Review ATLAS SHRUGGED PART 1

ATLAS SHRUGGED

You have demanded it and now here it is. The screen adaptation of Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, or at least Part One on DVD. Yeah, I know you had good reason to avoid it in the theater, but now you can get your intellectual on in a big way. Well, maybe a little way. It's a good chance to get a "light on the sauce" taste of what the big meal is all about. Whether there is a there there is strictly a matter of taste.

DVD Review SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA

SPARTACUS: GODS

Spartacus: Gods of the Area serves as a prequel, a continuation and an introduction to the Spartacus series. Definitely, if you don't like sex and violence in your televsion, then do not watch this show which from the first scene contains copious amounts of both. Featuring a hyper-reality graphic novel style and well-written characters, the mini-series fills the gap between the original show and the upcoming 2013 second season.

DVD Review THE RICKY GERVAIS SHOW THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

THE RICKY GERVA

The content of the show is fairly simple. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant sit down with Karl Pilkington and ask him questions or lead him into conversation. Hilarity ensues and there is simply no telling where the threads are going to lead when the three get going. A large part of comedy is the bullying of Karl by Ricky in his aggressive way and Stephen in his passive way. Many of their insults pertain to the roundness of Karl's head. Some of it can be a bit mean-spirited, but there is no doubt that Ricky Gervais has one of the most infectious laughs on television.

The story of Spartacus has been told many times for many reasons. This newest version, Spartacus: Blood and Sand which first aired on STARZ, is a potent mix of violence, sex and intrigue.

Love it or hate it, the show is increasing in popularity. There is a big risk to its continuance with the significant cast changes in store for the next season. The DVD provides the nice "soap-opera-on-disc" continuity that allows the viewer to blend the episodes together and find new levels of continuity that are not available in the weekly, commercial interrupted versions.

Contributor Bio

Info

I have been a fan of movies for my whole life and have even took some time to study them in college. I would say that my favorite director is Stanley Kubrick. My favorite star is Marlon Brando. My favorite movie is probably The Godfather, but that is hard to say. I enjoy classic film, as well.
