Standing Up
Standing Up (0) PG
Director: D.J Caruso

Review by: Angie Kathleen L. - 2/23/2018 8:37 PM
"Fabulous story of children caught in the crossfire of bulling, distracted/absent parents, and adults that think such bad behavior is part of growing up. This is NOT a how-to on dealing with bulling. It is an affirmation that there are people who care and situations can get better. And, oh the twists and turns as you root for these two 12-year-olds and shake you head at some of their choices. A good movie to discuss with your children after you watch it together. I have not read the original book, "Goats.""

"This combines "B-Movie Blast" and "Drive-In Movie Classics" into a single cardboard box containing these two disc sets.

Keeping that in mind and that Mill Creek likes to splash their logo onn the movies if you want to re-live some classics it's a great set."

Release Year: 2018

Review by: Schuylar L. (schuym1) - 2/18/2018 9:06 PM
"This movie has a slow start for almost half of its runtime, but then the zombie carnage happens. Technology that was meant to make insects kill each other brought people back from the dead. I only wish that this DVD transfer had better quality."

Release Year: 2002

Review by: Michel D. (michelann) - 2/16/2018 12:00 PM
"This movie is "safe" for all ages because it is apparently a TV film from 1993 so if viewers expect to hear the typical language usually found in this type of story it just isn't here! Lots of good acting from Louis Gossett Jr and Blair Underwood as well as Rae Dawn Chong (daughter of Tommy Chong)and an interesting story make this movie well worth watching!"

Release Year: 2018

Review by: Tammy K. (TK942) - 2/15/2018 3:24 PM
"Melissa McCarthy is only in this film for about 5 minutes. They have placed her on the cover to trick you into renting/buying this which is a really rotten thing to do, and probably the only reason they've released this bomb after shelving it for 10 years."


The Jackie Robinson Story
The Jackie Robinson Story (2001) NR
Director: Alfred E. Green
Actors: Jackie Robinson, Ruby Dee, Minor Watson
Release Year: 2001

Review by: Lory R. (melikedvd) - 2/15/2018 2:14 PM
"Since others have already gone over the merits of the film itself and the importance of his story, I'll just review the quality of the DVD release. There are several distributors that have chosen to release this movie because it has fallen into the public domain. Mill Creek put it on a multi-movie disc with "Kill The Umpire" starring William Bendix. That disc is only worth getting for the Bendix movie. The copy of the Jackie Robinson Story used by Mill Creek is a second rate dupe.
There's only one way to get the best copy and that's the MGM vintage Classics edition. They clearly went from a clean original film print. Even the trailer included looks good. Thank you, MGM."


Conan The Adventurer: Season Two, Part 2
Conan The Adventurer: Season Two, Part 2 (2012) NR
Director: Christian Choquet
Actors: Michael Donovan, Janyse Jaud
Release Year: 2012

Review by: Jacob H. - 2/15/2018 12:38 PM
"This is a good series for the Conan fans out there. Not nearly as violent as Robert Howard's original stories or the Arnold movies, but more geared toward the tween crowd. It still adheres to the source material as much as a weekday afternoon cartoon can and is entertaining.

The animation quality varies from sub-par to just better than average depending on the episode and the company providing the animation. It's like the companies were working from different character models as their appearances can vary greatly. The female companion, Jezmine, can take on an almost anime appearance in the episodes made by KK C&D. Those are always the better looking eps.

In terms of actual video quality the season 1 DVD's look great and are well done. These season 2 discs are pretty bad. They're from PAL videotape and are not converted back to the U.S. NTSC standard correctly. They're sped up, have ghosting in all movement areas, and look like they've been put through a red filter. It's the best we're going to get, just be aware."

"A heart-moving documentary! The power of music and an empathetic listener to make a huge difference in the minds of dementia afflicted folks was nothing short of amazing! Even the artwork on the cover tells a story worth listening to. You will not be sorry you watched this one...Amazing!"
