Man on the Moon DVD Review

The sound performance in this movie was very good. Of course, this was no disc of the action genre, but was still crisp and clear. The surround sound could be definitely be discerned throughout. Great!

Incredible sound performance! This movie got "Best Sound" at the Academy Awards and this is the chance for DVD collector's to see why. Be warned that the depth charges may cause multiple concussions if your subwoofer can deliver the full impact of this movie.

Marillion – Marbles on the Road

Marillion – Marbles on the Road

As any even casual reader of the Audioholics forums knows, Gene and Clint are HUGE fans of this band. As anyone who has read nearly any of my reviews knows, I tend to be a tiny bit tough. Put the two together, and I'm probably out of a job. So you're probably not reading this, which means I'm talking to myself again, which means I need to up my meds…

Al Di Meola – One of These Nights DVD Review

Al Di Meola – One of These Nights DVD Review

What a funky box, I thought when I unwrapped this DVD. Like most people, I am used to having to unwrap the DVD, fight with three different security tapes along the edges, and spend hours trying to get the last remnants of the glue off the cover. This box had none of that. In fact, it isn't even plastic - it is cardboard.

Noel DVD Review - Widescreen Review

Christmas Eve can be a strange and wondrous time - especially in New York City where multiple personal stories seem to connect and collide. A lonely and divorced publisher, Rose Harrison (played by Susan Sarandon) seemingly lets life pass her by as she centers her life around caring for her mother who has late stage Alzheimer's.

Batman Begins DVD Review - Widescreen

Batman Begins DVD Review - Widescreen

Yes, yet another comic book based movie, but a darn good one. This movie is quite different from its predecessors. It takes on a much darker, much more serious side to the tale of Batman. Batman Begins explains Batman's origins by highlighting his fears, his training, and his ideologies. The film details the reasoning behind Bruce Wayne's great responsibility to protect the innocent from those who have made Gotham a city of fear. Oh, and it rocks!
