    DVD REVIEW: Angry Beavers - The Complete Series

    The newly released "complete series" DVD from Shout Factory contains 62 episodes but alas, no bonus features.

    Review: 'Europa Report' Starring Sharlto Copley

    With the pressure to deliver on big time thrills and eye-popping CGI set pieces, multiplex sci-fi offerings frequently appear nearly brainless. While Sebastián Cordero’s “Europa Report” is far from flawless, this contained sci-fi thriller is shot through with a devotion to realism and a sense of won...
