Once you become a rabid Disney theme park fan, you start finding different ways to extend the magic between trips to satiate you while you’re away from the parks.

Real Steel Blu-ray Review

When the Real Steel Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo first arrived for me to review, my initial thought was, “great, a movie about Rock ‘Em, Rock ‘Em Robots!

Dead Poets Society Blu-Ray Review

Oh Captain! My Captain! Unlike Good Morning, Vietnam, I actually knew more about Dead Poets Society than this famous line. Dead Poets Society has long held a spot on my list of top films.
