No frets, folks! Epix has unveiled an official […]

The Christopher Nolan 4K Box Set Is Unreal, In The Best Ways

Director Christopher Nolan is a perfectionist, and the majority of his films show this. We recently upgraded our home theater system to a 7.1.2, specifically in order to really appriciate the wide range of things being offered on 4K Ultra HD, like the Warner Brothers Christopher Nolan 4K/Blu Ray box set collection. The 21 disc set contains Nolan’s […]


Hans Zimmer

Hans Zimmer Live, The Composer’s Orchestral Rock Concert

One of the many joys in a reviewer’s life centers on composers and their film scores, few more iconic than Hans Zimmer.
