Blu-ray Review: Glass - An Excellent Conclusion to the Trilogy - Out Now

GlassToday the comic book thriller Glass, written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, comes to 4k Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. Glass is the third film in a trilogy that started almost twenty years ago with the release of Unbreakable, followed by the more recent Split years later. No one had any idea that the first two films were related until the credits were ready to roll on the second film, with a scene showing that both took place within the same universe, which sparked people’s excitement for more.

In the first film, a comic book art dealer, Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), a.k.a. Mr. Glass, is born with “brittle bones” disease, which causes him to be easily injured and suffer multiple breaks throughout his childhood. He feels that if he exists, he must have an opposite. He makes it his mission to find such a person, and eventually tracks down David Dunn (Bruce Willis), a lone survivor of a train crash that Price himself caused. Dunn subsequently finds himself to be super strong and nearly invincible, except for his weakness of water. Dunn becomes a super hero of sorts, a crime-fighting vigilante, The Overseer, helping the weak, as he also has the unique ability to see flashes of the criminal pasts and futures of others with only a touch. The only one aware of his abilities is his son, Joseph (Spencer Treat Clark). At the end of the film, Price is committed to a psychiatric facility.

Advance Preview: A Discovery of Witches Revisited - A New Perspective

A Discovery of WitchesBack in January, the Sky series A Discovery of Witches came to the US via the streaming services Sundance Now, Shudder, and AMC Premiere. Because of its huge success, on Sunday night, the series makes its way to network television in the US for the first time, premiering on both AMC and BBC America simultaneously.

Based on the first book of the All Souls fantasy trilogy by the same name by Deborah Harkness, the series, which has already been renewed for a second and third season, has been adapted for television by Kate Brooke, who also executive produces.

The story takes place in a world where witches, vampires, and daemons exist alongside humans in secret and follows Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer), a witch who has denied her heritage, never embraced her powers, and is unaware of her strength. When she successfully requests a long-lost manuscript from the Bodleian Library at Oxford University, creatures take notice. One of those creatures is vampire Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode), who has been looking for the book for centuries, thinking it contains information on his heritage. He explains to her that he is not the only one and warns that all the supernatural creatures will soon be after her.

Blu-ray Review: Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase is a Fun Caper for the Whole Family

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blue-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Nancy Drew and the Hidden StaircaseBased on the classic book series, Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres, follows the sleuth teen as she uncovers a new mystery.

After her mother passes, Nancy (Sophia Lillis) and her father (Sam Trammell) move from Chicago to the small town of River Heights. Longing for adventure, Nancy often gets into trouble trying to help others, as it’s not always in the most constructive ways. It’s the last straw when she retaliates against a bully (Evan Castelloe) after he humiliates one of her best friends, Bess (Mackenzie Graham), and causes property damage. The sixteen-year-old is sentenced to community service picking up trash by Sheriff Marchbanks (Jay DeVon Johnson).

The OA Season Two: Another Mindblowing Masterpiece That You'll Want to Watch Again

***Review contains slight spoilers***

The OAFriday Netflix dropped the second season of its hit series The OA. If you thought season one was confusing, put on your thinking caps, because this one will take a few viewings at least.

It’s hard to sum up The OA. It's the kind of show that people either love or hate. Me, I'm in love. The first season was a beautifully written masterpiece. It ended so perfectly, yet fans yearned for season two, but could it stand up to the hype?

The Walking Dead - Chokepoint - 9.13 - Review & Recap

The Walking DeadOn the latest episode of The Walking Dead, Daryl and Connie attempt to save Lydia and Henry while the Kingdom meets some new allies.

For as much as I’ve been annoyed by Henry and Lydia, I found this week’s episode to be fairly enjoyable - except for the end, but we’ll get to that.

Lately the Kingdom story hasn’t been as integral to the episodes as the rest, but this week that starts to change as the groups are merging together at the fair. It’s going to be great to see some of them back together again, at least for a while, and we at least get a taste of that.

Blu-ray Review: Krypton: The Complete First Season - A Unique Vision of the Superman Universe

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-rayTM I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Krypton: The Complete First SeasonTwo generations before the planet was destroyed, Krypton tells the story of Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), Superman’s grandfather. After Seg’s own grandfather (Ian McElhinney) is killed for treason for believing in a threat from another world, their family is stripped of their title and rank.

Seg grows up with his parents in the lower class of the planet in Kandor City, with a corrupt government, getting into bar brawls to make extra money. On top of that he’s in love with Lyta-Zod (Georgina Campbell), who is to be bonded to someone else.

When he stops a terrorist and is offered a rise again in rank as part of another family, his parents urge him to accept and make a better life for himself. However, everything changes when he is approached by the time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos).

The Walking Dead - Guardians - 9.12 - Review & Recap

The Walking DeadThe episode did have some good action this week, but most of what sticks out to me is how annoying Henry still is. Everything could have been avoided just by him staying home, but of course, he thinks he’s a hero. He can’t even track without being spotted. The other thing, is that the majority of the episode was super predictable with him. I’m blaming the writers on this one.

I am interested a bit more in Lydia this week, however. It seems, at least to me, that other than telling Daryl and the others there were only a few Whisperers, that she told the truth. I think she really does want out of the situation. I feel like what she told Alpha was pretty much the bare minimum, and she only said anything because she’s scared of her mother. Although, Alpha trying to force her to kill Henry, doesn’t really show her if she has feelings for him. I’m guessing Lydia probably wouldn’t have wanted to kill anyone in cold blood.

The Magicians - A Timeline and Place - 4.06 - Recap & Review

The MagiciansI really liked this week’s episode. It was interesting to see that Penny and Marina’s timeline jump has caused repercussions. However, although some of the timey-wimey stuff happening with them felt a little unnecessary, I enjoyed it none the less, especially both Pennys interacting with each other. Arjun Gupta was excellent in that scene and looked like he was having a lot of fun. It also serves as a good reminder that although Penny 40 may be fitting in, the original Penny has been dead. At least we got to see what he’s been up to. I’m not sure how Kady will react to his message, but I still hold hope that somehow he’ll get to see her again. With this show, you never know.
