demon's wars and eventually captured the demon and he was rewarded as
a demigod, but when he learned that the fox demon's life was
connected to the life of an innocent girl, he refused heaven's order

Gods and protected man from the fox demons who brought chaos. But

the if they kill her, the kill an innocent life. Jiang Ziya then
refused to kill that soul, instead he decides to save that innocent

can't even save one soul?
was action filled CGI martial art movie with plenty of eye candy and
special effects. One man against the world, even if it is against
the gods, a hero is a person who fights even if it the entire world
say he is wrong.
1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image looks great, there is
money in it for certain and it is very clear and consistent an HD
shoot even when using monochromatic colors, while the Mandarin DTS-HD
MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix has a great soundfield and
impresses throughout. The English dubs are inferior, as expected.
Wonder why no 12-track version, or are they saving it for a future 4K
CW series, Legacies
(2018 - current), is a spin-off of the other hit shows for the
network, The Vampire
(reviewed elsewhere on this site.) While mainly a teenage drama,
there's some serious X-Men, Harry Potter, and Twilight Saga
inspiration going on here, as it mostly feels like a cheesy joining
of the two. The cast of all pretty young faces and often hilariously
subpar effects will make most adults chuckle. In essence, it's a
soap opera for teens in a fantasy wrapping.

is presented in anamorphically enhanced, standard definition on DVD
with a 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1
mix. The show looks better than it does on network TV without the
pesky watermarks and commercial breaks. The presentation is fine
though compressed, which is normal for the aged format.
fun slasher on the snow, Let
(2020) is an inventive horror thriller starring Ivanna Sakhno
as a snowboarder who ends up face to face with a killer out in the
middle of nowhere amidst mountains of snow. What makes the film
unique is the different setting it chooses as a background for what
is otherwise your typical slasher picture formula. There are some fun
moments with the masked Killer playing cat and mouse with Ivanna.
film also stars Alex Hafner and Tinatin Dalakishvili with direction
by Stanislav Karalov and from a producer of the Papillon remake.
is presented in standard definition on DVD with a 2.35 X 1 widescreen
aspect ratio and a lossy 5.1 Dolby Digital mix. Up to par and of the
norm for the aging format, the film looks and sounds fine, but would
benefit in HD. The film is beautifully photographed and would be a
great candidate for the 4K UHD format. The compression you can tell
detracts from the overall experience being on DVD.

Country: The Complete First Season
debuts on Blu-ray disc in this collectible new edition. Being a
huge genre fan, I wanted to dive into this show and enjoy it more
than I did... but admittedly the show is a mixed bag - a few standout
episodes and a few that are too racially heavy and uncomfortable for
their own good. I understand the network's desire to push sex
(homosexual sex too in this instance), racism, and violence, but one
episode in particular is bound to make some viewers uncomfortable
even though the setting is appropriate. While I haven't read the
book by Matt Ruff in which the show is based, it seems like this show
could have been a lot more fun and easier to take in if it didn't
have some of that garbage that doesn't seem to really fit in with the
rest of the story they are telling.

to par. While there isn't a 4K UHD version available yet, I don't
think it's out of the question for the future. As it stands, this
Blu-ray presentation is about on par with the original network
broadcast. The show is high concept and beautifully photographed as
is the usual with any HBO production.

is an interesting watch when it doesn't try to push the boundaries
with shock value sexual and racial content. I'm not sure if H.P.
Lovecraft himself would have approved some of the places this show
goes. Nevertheless, I am curious to see more next season, but
overall I felt this season could have been better, which is a trend
I'm sadly noticing in a lot of J.J. Abrams productions as of late.
Acts Of Violence
a Shudder original that's going beyond the streaming platform and
onto disc here under the RLJE banner. The film is an interesting
thriller that centers on two comic book artists that end up bringing
their murderous creation to life and encounter the random acts of
violence with their friends.

the film stars Jordana Brewster (Fast

of 2.39:1 and a lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 mix. The film
has flashy titles and a new age electronic soundtrack that hypes up
the action and makes it feel more modern. The overall presentation
of the film on disc here is fine and up to standards with the format.

Inside the Making Of an action scene
a former royal guard was casted out in a coup against the former king
and has been blinded and living in the mountains with his daughter.
However, when slave traffickers take his daughter, he once again
takes up his sword once more in Jang
greatest swordsman of Korea (played by the director) was blinded in
the coup when the late king surrendered to end the bloodshed, but as
Korea dreamed for a better future, instead its citizens were forced
into slavery making 'reparations', people's daughters were being sold
into slavery, held for hostage all for the sake of 'peace' and so
that those in the new government can stay in power. That is until
the slave traffickers start taking the government official's
daughters. The swordman's daughter turns out to be actually the
former princess of the ex-king, when she tries to buy a cure for her
father's blindness, she gets taken by the slave traders. The slave
trader's one vice is finding strong warriors and life and death
battles ...and now they have the swordsman's adopted daughter (Kim
Hyun-soo) ...and his wrath.
was a martial arts action filled Korean movie, about a hero who
wanted to live in peace even after being blinded and cast out of
society. He was ordered by the former king to protect his adopted
daughter, his sacrifice, his honor, his loyalty was all but
forgotten, but even blinded his swordsmanship and his warrior
instincts was not forgotten.
1080p 1.85 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer is another
good-looking Korean HD shoot that has some fine definition, detail
and depth, plus color is not bad, while the Korean DTS-HD
MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix is well recorded and mixed for
best impact and is the best soundtrack here. As usual, the English
dub is not as good.
