reviewed Bloody Girls triple feature. November 08, 2011
Bloody Girls triple feature
Much like Blue Underground and Anchor Bay Shriek Show/Media Blasters takes a good deal of time and effort in restoring obscure movies to DVD.  This triple feature/pack focuses on 1980 horror films …
reviewed Final Exam. November 08, 2011
Final Exam
As a huge fan of 1980 horror/slasher films I was very, very eager to watch “Final Exam”.  I had heard so much about it, both good and bad things.  In addition, I had seen the trailer/preview …

TMNT
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turltes, oh yeah.  A cult PHENOMENON in the late 80's that lasts, till pretty much now I'll be honest.  It started as an underground comic, had a mini series cartoon …
reviewed Jem and the Holograms. October 05, 2010
Jem is truly outragous.
You’ve probably never heard of Jem and the Holograms before, and that’s why I’m here, Lunchers. Jem and the Holograms was a cheesy 80s TV show that featured an all girl band that doubled …
reviewed The Wizard. September 26, 2010
The Wizard
What can I say about the Wizard?  When this flick came out I was at the apex of my Nintendo playing years as well as one huge Fred Savage fan.  It seemed like you couldn't turn on the TV …

Rad
   Growing up in the 80s I had a chance to catch the insane home video boom right from the beginning, what with all of the mom & pop rental shops opening and the initial flood of movie titles …

Original Poster
I don't think I've ever seen a movie so corny yet so cute at the same time. Despite the 1980s special effects and acting, there's a certain charm to The Goonies. It's largely from the energy of the kids …

Fraggle Rock: Complete Second Season
Recently, I was clearing my parents house out and found a box of old toys, including a bunch of Fraggle dolls that I had as a kid. When I mentioned this to my sister, she said she heard that Fraggles …

reviewed LEGO: A Love Story. June 06, 2010
LEGO: A Love Story
This book has a fantastic cover that initially drew me to it. The idea of an adult man reconnecting with a childhood love of building bricks was also fascinating.     It's billed as …
reviewed LEGO: A Love Story. May 16, 2010
LEGO: A Love Story
Early in LEGO: A Love Story, I found myself wondering about author Jonathan Bender's narrative. It is easy to grasp the themes of his book; exploration of the world of Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOL), from …
Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s, Vol. 1
I'm a huge cartoon nerd who in particular loves the Saturday morning and syndicated stuff from the 80s and it's unfortunate that I think I'm both the exact target audience for a release like this as well …
reviewed LEGO: A Love Story. April 06, 2010
LEGO: A Love Story
One of the most vivid sense memories I have from when I was a child is of lying on the floor and trying to pry apart two short, flat Lego planks (2x2s) with my teeth. The tips of my fingers kept painfully …
reviewed LEGO: A Love Story. April 05, 2010
LEGO: A Love Story
Back when I was a wee lad... ok, as recently as when I was 28... I've had a fascination for LEGO. Twice in my life I've had large LEGO cities (Legopolis and New Legopolis, for the curious). These contained …
reviewed ThunderCats. January 29, 2010
ThunderCats
The Reagan-era kids had some great, innocent good-versus-evil TV shows, including Thundercats, Muppet Babies, The Raccoons, A-Team and Knight Rider. While all were basically shit in their own way, they …

The Real Ghostbusters: Complete Collection (2009)
I'm a huge fan of 80s cartoons, and I've been waiting a long time to see the Real Ghostbusters get some decent releases on DVD. In the past it's been available overseas and on odd single disc releases …

Dungeons & Dragons: The Complete Animated Series
I just received an advanced copy of the Mill Creek re-release of the complete Dungeons and Dragons cartoon on DVD and I have to say that I'm both surprised and a little bummed. Real quick, the cartoon …

Transformers: The Complete First Season (25th
For the last few years it's been a wonderful time for fans of 80s cartoons. Between the lovely Filmation sets released by the now sadly defunct BCI Eclipse, Warner Bros. stepping up to the plate and offering …

The Transformers - The Movie (20th Anniversary
Transformers: the Movie was one of two animated feature films that were released in 1986 by DEG/Marvel/Sunbow entertainment, the other being G.I. Joe: the Movie. Both films had very similar plots (both …

She-Ra - Princess of Power - Season Two
So, out of all the 80's cartoon DVD sets that I've procured in the past 7 or so years I keep getting amazed by the ones that stand out as my favorites as far as content and presentation. I grew up addicted …

Dungeons & Dragons - The Complete Animated Series
You know, if there were an award for the best company producing and distributing DVD sets in North America I would have to say that hands down, BCI Eclipse deserves it more than goth kids who cut themselves …
