The Hurt Locker (Digital 4K UHD)

The Hurt Locker has been released in 4K Ultra HD as a Digital-Only release! Here's our review!

Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

After a bad breakup with the Joker, Harley finds herself on her own in Gotham trying to make her way in a cruel city with a long history for chewing people up and spitting ‘em out. One of the big differences in this Harley and ‘Suicide Squad Harley’ is that she’s not portrayed as the Joker’s sexy but insane girlfriend. Christina Hodson(Bumblebee) writes Harley the way she should be, A wild and fun party girl, who just happens to have a Ph.D. in Psychology and doesn’t mind breaking every bone in your body to get what she wants. One of the problems Harley has to face is that when she was with Joker she pissed off a lot of people. Now that her puddin’ is no longer there to protect her those people want their revenge. Luckily for her, she meets a few ladies along the way that might be able to help her out of her current situation. Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), a police detective who learned how to be a cop watching 80’s cop shows. Helena Bertinelli aka The Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), trained assassin and only survivor of the Bertinelli crime family. Dinah Lance aka Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) part-time singer/all-time tough chick. Unlike Suicide Squad they don’t just throw Harley together with the Birds of Prey and it’s off to defeat evil. The common link that brings them all together is a little girl by the name of Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco). She’s also a big part of the reason why the movies’ main villain Roman Sionis aka Black Mask (Ewan Mcgregor) wants them all dead.

It is 1946, zombies are back and more horrifying than ever, and our band of Heroes have a huge Challenge on their plate with the events of Rebellion's new title Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Though some things in Zombie Army 4 do feel all too similar to previous titles, this entry in the series made me understand the passion Rebellion has for their games and their fans. Let's dive in...

Doctor Sleep (4K UHD)

The latest Stephen King adaptation that serves as a sequel to The Shining, arrives on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-Ray, bringing a full director’s cut and plenty of special features. Is Doctor Sleep worth picking up for it’s 4K release or should it stay on the shelf? Check out my full review for my thoughts!

Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island Doesn't Live Up to the Hype

Overall, while Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island does have a few genuinely funny moments, it is far from being a worthy successor to the original film. I feel like a...

Midsommar Takes You on a Trip That is Definitely Worthwhile
