The Great Mouse Detective: Special Edition Blu-ray — You probably only know about the under-the-radar 1986 Disney gem if you watched it and adored it as a kid. The Sherlock Holmes-parodying mystery yarn gets much more of a boost than …

E.T. the Extra Terrestrial 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray — Steven Spielberg's folksy 1982 tale of friendship between a boy (Henry Thomas) and a young, lost alien who just wants to phone home still hits all the right emotional buttons. One …

The PhilmGuy Reviews 'Pitch Perfect' Starring Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow and Rebel&n...
There are so many reasons to hate Pitch Perfect, and yet it's impossibly tough to do so. It's a movie that you'll laugh at as much with, then store in the back of your mind until you meet someone …

American Horror Story: Season 1 — FX's gothic, wildly unpredictable yet always entrancing miniseries hooks you with a sordid pilot and never loosens its grip. Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton play a couple who move into a haunted house, becoming …

The PhilmGuy Reviews 'Looper' Starring Joseph Gordon Levitt, Emily Blunt and Bruce&nbs...
Movie studios play this little game where they try to pretend the source of movie piracy is people recording preview screenings on their cell phones. They post security guards at the door to make sure people don't bring their phones …

The PhilmGuy’s DVD Review: ‘Katy Perry: Part of Me’
America's Book of Secrets: Season 1 — Yet another tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy-obsessed History Channel series — a close cousin of Ancient Aliens — this one rounds up a slew of self-described experts to pontificate on such brain-teasers as whether the White House …

The Big Bang Theory: Season 5 — The nerd-tastic, academia-set sitcom that's stuck with the unfortunate laugh track shows no signs of fading as it reaches the half-decade mark. The on-again, off-again romance between characters played by Johnny Galecki and …

The PhilmGuy’s DVD Review: ‘Homeland’ Starring Claire Danes
Bored to Death: Season 3 — One of the quirkier series in HBO's stable, the noir-themed detective yarn stars Jason Schwartzman as a struggling writer who doubles as a quixotic private eye. His unreliable support network consists of an egotistical …

The PhilmGuy Reviews: ‘Lawless’ Starring Shia LaBeouf and Jessica Chastain
The square-dancing whiskey runners in the Prohibition-era Virginia-set movie Lawless may not think much of regulations from smarmy, moonshine-hating Yankees, but they sure do abide by melodramatic cliches. If you're a timid would-be gangster who looks up to your invincible, …

The PhilmGuy’s DVD Review: ‘The Five-Year Engagement’ Starring Emily Blunt and Jason&n...
Battleship — As far as movies based on board games go, you could do a lot worse than this big, dumb yet thoroughly entertaining Navy procedural. Taylor Kitsch stars as an black sheep Naval officer who seizes control of his ship …

The PhilmGuy’s DVD Review: ‘The Dictator’ Starring Sacha Baron Cohen and Anna Far...
The Aristocats Blu-ray — Disney's oft-overlooked, feline-focused 1970 film gets some overdue HD love. Set in Paris, the story is a barely comprehensible pastiche of kidnapping, jazz performances and high society hobnobbing, which is either disappointing or a welcome change …

The PhilmGuy Reviews: ‘Sparkle’ Starring Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston
There may or may not be an actual movie hidden among all the showstopping musical numbers in Sparkle. Not that there needs to be. Sparkle is all about the music, and seems to have been created for Jordin Sparks, …

Astonishing X-Men: Torn — The Joss Whedon-penned series of graphic novels gets the motion-comic treatment once again. This outing focuses on whack-job telepath Emma Frost, who acts strangely, making life difficult for the likes of Cyclops, who begins to …

The PhilmGuy Reviews: ‘Hope Springs’ Starring Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones & Ste...
I'm pretty sure Tommy Lee Jones was born crotchety and bitter. He must have emerged from the womb with a snide remark about the lighting and a dry, sarcastic comeback after the doctor announced "It's a boy!" Sixty-five years later, …

The PhilmGuy’s DVD Review: ‘Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax’ Starring Zac Efron, Taylor Swift and...
Adventures in Babysitting Blu-ray — One of the definitive way-over-the-top 1980s tween fantasies — fitting in alongside the likes of Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Goonies — the action-comedy stars Elisabeth Shue as a babysitter who lugs the kids she's …

The PhilmGuy Reviews: ‘Total Recall’ Starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate&nbs...
It's not uncommon to have hot, sweaty dreams involving Jessica Biel, but the problem with Colin Farrell's Biel dreams is that they only involve him and her shooting bad guys together. So you can't really blame him when …

The PhilmGuy’s DVD Review: ‘LOL’ Starring Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore
La Grand Illusion Blu-ray — Jean Renoir's World War I-set 1937 think piece tells a grim tale of French POWs who are trapped inside an all-but-inescapable fortress. The saga inspired dozens, if not hundreds of imitators, including just about …

The PhilmGuy Reviews: ‘The Watch’ Starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hi...
There's a scene in watch in which the four leads are crammed into a car on a stakeout, complaining about how bored they are. It's all too easy to identify. A bizarro action comedy, the Watch squanders the ample talents …

The PhilmGuy’s DVD Review: 'Silent House’ Starring Elizabeth Olsen
Boss: Season 1 — After playing the role of Frasier for more than 20 years, Kelsey Grammer has finally managed to redefine himself as the iron-fisted Mayor of Chicago in this crackling Starz drama. As he juggles the demands of his …
