The Twilight Saga: New Moon Extended Edition Blu-ray review

New Moon

Lionsgate Films / Summit Entertainment
Rated PG-13
130 minutes
Release Date: October 23, 2018

The opening dream scene in the meadow gets me every time as Bella sees herself as old with Edward. I think it is a beautiful concept as Bella (Kristen Stewart) worries about aging while her true vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson) stays forever young at seventeen, and will not turn her. It’s Bella’s birthday, and as much as she “doth” protests, everyone reminds her of the celebrating. She really doesn’t get Edward’s attitude, until her disastrous birthday party at the Cullens where she almost becomes dessert that Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) explains it all to her.

Big Hero 6
2-Disc Blu-ray/DVD/Digital | Instant Video

Starring Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Daniel Henney, T.J. Miller, Genesis Rodriguez, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayons, Jr., Maya Rudolph and James Cromwell
Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Digital Release Date: Feb 3, 2015
Blu-ray Release Date: Feb. 24, 2015

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Big Hero 6 blasting off on Blu-ray. The Disney animated hit sees its Blu-ray home release and digital download premiere via Disney Movies Anywhere. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ latest production won over audiences and critics upon arriving in theatres, and those same individuals will be glad to hear that its home release does not disappoint either.

FILM

As I suggested in my original review of Big Hero 6, this action flick demonstrates the studio’s ability to seamlessly blend multiple genres in one. As much as this embodies an origins film that could lead to a sequel, the bustling gang of eccentric characters are crafted to make us fall in love with each of their personalities. This is a story about brothers, loss, new friendships, perseverance and the other touching factors you’re accustomed to from watching a great Disney movie. Additionally, laughs enter in each minute and a few tears are not far behind.

Fedora

Fedora
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by Billy Wilder
Screenplay by Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond
Based on the novella by Tom Tryon
Starring William Holden, Marthe Keller, and José Ferrer
Olive Films
Release Date: October 28, 2014

Aging and the collapse of the old Hollywood studio system has made Barry “Dutch” Detweiler (William Holden) cynical about the redefined business of filmmaking. Now a struggling independent producer exhausting what little finances he has to develop a new adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s literary masterpiece Anna Karenina, Dutch has traveled to a remote Greek island in search of the legendary actress Fedora (Marthe Keller). It’s been years since Fedora, once one of the most beloved stars of the silver screen, suffered the emotional breakdown that sent her into permanent seclusion and Dutch hopes to lure her out of self-imposed retirement to star in his newest production. But he finds his efforts to approach Fedora thwarted at every turn by her mysterious and overprotective benefactors, the haughty Countess Sobryanski (Hildegard Knef) and the ethically-suspect plastic surgeon Dr. Vando (José Ferrer).

Blu-ray Review: Moontrap

Moontrap

Moontrap
Blu-ray|DVD
Directed by Robert Dyke
Screenplay by Tex Ragsdale
Starring Walter Koenig, Bruce Campbell, and Leigh Lombardi
Olive Films
Release Date: November 18, 2014

During a routine space shuttle mission astronaut Colonel Jason Grant (Walter Koenig) and his friend and co-pilot Ray Tanner (Bruce Campbell) encounter a derelict alien craft floating among the stars. Upon inspecting the ship Grant discovers a desiccated human corpse and a strange red pod. Back on Earth the body is carbon-dated to be 14,000 years old and the pod contains a small robot that can build itself into a virtually indestructible killing machine with the help of some scrap metal and human appendages. The machine is destroyed after engaging NASA’s finest in a body count-heavy battle and Grant and Tanner are assigned to travel to the moon in an old Apollo spacecraft to investigate the alien’s origins and find out if they have any more surprises in store for mankind.

Oh Moontrap, where have you been all my life? Long have I known of this indie sci-fi thriller’s existence through edited clips on the unjustly cancelled USA Network show Shadow Theater (hosted by Robert Englund) and a passage in co-star Bruce Campbell’s autobiography, but it has been unavailable on home video since the dying days of the VHS era….until now. Directed by Robert Dyke, a visual effects artist and producer and director of commercials making his feature debut as director, from a screenplay by the awesomely-monikered Tex Ragsdale, Moontrap is a pure delight of unpretentious creature feature fun that makes its long-awaited debut on Blu-ray and DVD Stateside.
