“V” The Complete First Season has plenty of promise and while it’s not quite even from the beginning of the season to the end, I do think it has the potential to be great. At the same time, I am intrigued to see how they can keep the series fresh if it even gets beyond the upcoming second season. The Blu-ray itself has a decent selection of features and the video/audio both are good enough, but nothing amazing.

Altitude could have been a great air disaster movie before they threw in some supernatural “Twilight Zone” moments which completely took me out of the film. On the positive side, for such a fairly unknown cast, I thought for the most part they had some good chemistry together and the film looks good for a low budget project.

Unlike the 3D presentation, I found the 2D to be very fulfilling. The film though still does not entertain me much, and I don’t see myself ever wanting to re-watch it again. But for fans of the classic tale, or parents willing to sit through this with their little ones, sure, give it a shot. Just don’t be upset if you find yourself holding the same opinion I have.

After a long delay, I finally got the entire review done of this massive 6-disc Blu-ray set and I will admit, this is easily the best movie collection on Blu-ray that I’ve encountered as it not only ported over every feature from not only the 9-disc DVD set (which I am happy to finally rid myself of) but also some text and image features from the old Laserdisc Archive (not to mention fantastic audio and video transfers). So, click the link below and see the breakdown of what all is included…

The Disappearance of Alice Creed is a nice indie picture from that is pretty intense and unrelenting from beginning to end. The film also features three great performances with rising star Gemma Arterton standing out amongst them. The Blu-ray has a surprisingly amazing looking picture and good if not adequate audio.

The Disappearance of Alice Creed is a nice indie picture that is pretty intense and unrelenting from beginning to end. The film also features three great performances with rising star Gemma Arterton standing out amongst them. The DVD itself is limited in the features department but the picture looks great and the audio is adequate enough. If you can pick up the disc at a good price then it would be well worth picking up.

Damned by Dawn is a tale of two halves with the first half of the film being a truly terrifying, well crafted horror film before going to complete crap during the second half and primarily third act. The movie isn’t the best indie horror but the Blu-ray doesn’t fare very well either with substandard audio and video though getting two commentaries a nearly hour-long documentary was good to have, however.

I can’t quite recommend this Blu-ray only because even with the other 3 shorts, it clocks in around 60-minutes which is still 10-15 minutes shorter than a feature-length DC Animated movie. I like that they did include commentaries for each short but I would’ve liked a featurette or two focusing on the animation process.
