Media Haul (October 2022)

October had some pretty sweet releases. With not much in the way of movies, I focused primarily on TV seasons that I wanted to catch up on. Here are the titles that I snagged this month: Top Gun: Maverick - BD UHD La Brea: Season 1 - BD HD The … Continue reading →

Media Haul (September 2022)

For someone who collects a lot of physical media, I don’t seem to share enough about my hobby here on the blog. Well, that’s about to change. I’m not very good about keeping up with any sort of regular series, but I will make something like a promise to share … Continue reading →

4K UHD Collection: April 2020

I am back in the collecting game. After several months of work and keeping an eye on deals, I am now inching closer toward 100 titles and have built a pretty nice 4K UHD collection. It started with my first DVD player in 2001. Since then, I have amassed a … Continue reading →

So, I finally caved and bought the DVD version of Empire Falls based off Richard Ruso’s novel. And the first thing I have to say is that it was good. Not as good as the novel, but still good. I actually didn’t know that Russo himself had written the screenplay. … Continue reading →


I definitely have a reason to write tonight. I just got through watching one of the most amazing movies I’ve ever seen in the theater: SERENITY. Joss Whedon pulls off a masterpiece in this follow-up to his short-lived series Firefly. From every syllable uttered to every camera angle, the crew … Continue reading →
