Raising the Bar - The Complete First Season (2008) "Raising the Bar" is a powerful series that comes from the legendary creator, Steven Bochco.  Bochco has been around since the early 1970s and has written and created some of the most legendary shows on television.  Beginning with "Columbo" and moving into "Doogie Howser, M.D.," and then on to "NYPD Blue" and "Commander in Chief," Steven Bochco has kept audiences glued to the television set. Now, I know what you are saying, "Do we really need another legal drama?"  The answer is absolutely if the name of the show is "Raising the Bar."  This show stands at the top when it comes to crime and legal dramas.  As far as I am concerned it crushes "Private Practice" and "Boston Legal." The cast ensemble is terrific.  Mark-Paul Gosselaar returns to television after his stint on "NYPD Blue."  He stands among other terrific actors ...

X-Men: The Animated Series - Volumes 1 and 2 Finally!  That is all I can say.  For me, this is one of the most anticipated cartoon releases to home video.  While I wish it were on the Blu-ray format, I will settle for standard DVDs.  In fact, I was in the process of collecting all these episodes off of broadcast and was getting annoyed by the scrolling messages at the bottom of the screen.  I was only three episodes away from collecting all 76 episodes when I got the news about this release. Matched for same time release as the Blu-ray release of the X-Men trilogy and the theatrical release of the Wolverine movie, the X-Men cartoon is a real treat.  As will most all cartoon sets, Buena Vista Home Entertainment has released them in volumes.  As of now they have released volumes one and two.  Each volume contains two ...

Into the Blue 2: The Reef (2009) "Into the Blue" was released in 2005 and became a classic beach action film.  It was not well received in the film critic world.  However, for a simple summer thrill film it was more than adequate.  Plus, who can forget the sight of Jessica Alba tanned and in a skimpy bikini?  Well, it seems as though Hollywood cannot resist making a sultry sequel.  Along the way the film became destined for a direct-to-video release only. Sony made the original film, but it looks like 20th Century Fox has taken the rights for the video sequel.  Unfortunately, the film doesn't live up to the meager expectations set by the original.  The girls are extremely hot but that is about the extent of what the film has to offer. Like most direct-to-video sequels, the film uses the same plot as the original, reversing some ...

Little Mermaid II, The: Return to the Sea (Special Edition) Once again, Disney feels the need to re-release a "Little Mermaid" film.  In 2000, Disney released "The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea" as a direct-to-video sequel to 1989's "The Little Mermaid."  Disney is now re-releasing the sequel as a Special Edition.  Unfortunately, the movie doesn't fair so well. First and foremost, the songs are not good at all.  They don't live up to the standard set by the original film.  The melodies are not catchy and lack pizzazz.  This was virtually Danny Troob's only attempt as a music composer.  It is in fact his last.  However, Troob has a longstanding relationship with Disney in their music department.  He has worked as an arranger and orchestrator for such legendary films as, "Beauty and the Beast," "Aladdin," "The Lion King," among many others.  Sadly, his work as a composer is sorely ...

Brian Regan - The Epitome of Hyperbole I first heard Brian Regan do some stand up comedy back in 1998 at "Comedy Day 98" in San Francisco Golden Gate Park.  While it was only a brief segment, Regan left me with a splitting side ache from laughing so hard.  Everything in his comedy bit was common day occurrence, and yet he put a new spin on them unlike any other comedian. Regan comes to DVD in "The Epitome of Hyperbole" in which he analyzes numerous topics, covering: reading, movies and parties, art and language, law, TV, space and marriage.  No stone is left unturned. Brian has a sense of humor that sometimes doesn't agree with the typical audience.  Some comedy bits sound like a rambling tangent, which results in a punch line that is lost in translation.  Meanwhile, other times he nails the bit.  Regan is a comedian that ...
