Running Time: 109 min.

Well, if nothing else, it certainly looks great. Cars 3, the newest from Pixar, is an admittedly slick little vehicle that will most certainly impress the young tykes. Unfortunately, this reviewer hasn’t been seven years old in a very, very long time. Despite the incredible...

It’s time for another look at new releases arriving on Blu-ray and DVD. This time out, there’s a good mix of studio and independently produced titles, meaning there’s lots of variety. So, if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!


Alone in Berlin - Based on a true story, this wartime feature involves a working-class couple who defy the Nazi party after learning that their son has been killed when he resisted the orders of his superiors.

Ever thought that the only problem with the classic Universal Monsters series was that they needed to team up and form an underground league to fight greater evil? I didn’t think so, but that is the tack that has officially been taken. The Mummy is an attempt to start a new “Dark Universe” series of films that will eventually combine characters like Frankenstein’s Monster, The Invisible Man and The Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Holy cow. When it comes to Blu-rays and DVDs, some weeks are quiet while others are filled with a seemingly endless supply of films. This happens to be one of the latter examples, with a massive supply of new releases that include the most popular film of the year (so far). So, if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!


Aftermath - An air traffic controller’s mistake results in a tragic plane crash. Suffering from tremendous guilt, things get even worse when the man must confront the enraged widower husband of one of the passengers, who is seeking revenge for the death of his wife and daughter. This heavy...

Running Time: 142 min.

The latest comic book movie to hit cinemas this week is Wonder Woman, part of the DC Universe that includes the likes of Superman and Batman. The good news is that this film is far, far superior to the efforts featuring those superheroes. In fact, the movie is helped tremendously by the fact that previous titles were so poor - this looks phenomenal in comparison. The bad news is that there are still flaws present and that the feature makes a few of the same mistakes as previous DC releases, though not on as grand or epic a scale. In the end, it’s reasonable enough to entertain children and fans of the character.
