THE SHIELD Complete Series Blu-ray Review

The 18 disc Blu-ray set Mill Creek has released for THE SHIELD marks their finest work to date. Everything from the quality of packaging to the number of extras makes this set a must own for any fan of the controversial series.

THE SHIELD follows Detective Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis - GOTHAM, FANTASTIC 4) and his corrupt cohorts who are tasked with ridding Los Angeles of its most violent criminals using any methods they deem necessary. From the first episode on, this crime drama was constantly calling into question its anti-heroes methods and taking an uncomfortable look at our criminal justice system. By creating complex characters on both sides of the law, show creator Shawn Ryan (S.W.A.T., TIMELESS, THE UNIT) dissolved the thin blue line over the course of his series 7 seasons.

Full 4k HD restorations of each episode, along with dozens of hours of special features including deleted scenes, commentaries from the cast and crew, and tons of featurettes made it impossible for me to di…

A LOOK AT MILL CREEK'S IMAX 4K TITLES - A BEAUTIFUL PLANET AND JOURNEY TO THE SOUTH PACIFIC

Narrated by Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, A Beautiful Planet is a breathtaking portrait of Earth from space, providing a unique perspective and increased understanding of our planet and galaxy as never seen before.

Made in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the film features stunning footage of our magnificent blue planet – and the effects humanity has had on it over time – captured by the astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS). From space, Earth blazes at night with the electric intensity of human expansion – a direct visualization of our changing world. But it is within our power to protect the planet. As we continue to explore and gain knowledge of our galaxy, we also develop a deeper connection to the place we all call home.






Narrated by Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett, Journey to the South Pacific will take moviegoers on a breathtaking IMAX adventure to the lush tropical islands of remote West Papua, where lif…

THE DARK from Dark Sky Films Coming to DVD 1/15

THE DARK, the biggest hit of 2018 for Dark Sky Films, is now the horror DVD of the year. On the outskirts of a small town lies Devil's Den, a mysterious tract of woods where many have entered but no one has ever left. The local legend is that the spirit of a girl who was horrifically murdered there haunts - and hunts in - this dense forest, brutally slaying anyone who dares to step into her terrain. When a young man with a dark past crosses her path, a series of events are set in motion that may lead to redemption for two tragically tortured souls. Part gothic fairytale and part chilling horror, director Justin P. Lange's debut feature balances rich imagery with a brutal and bloody story of unlikely kindred spirits who must defend themselves against the villainous powers of the "normal" world. Starring rising actors Nadia Alexander (USA's The Sinner) and Toby Nichols (Netflix's Iron Fist), THE DARK has been called "an ingenious reworking of the zombie g…

Episode 207 - Creed 2

In 2015 Ryan Coogler breathed new life into the long-running Rocky franchise with Creed so, naturally, we must have a sequel. Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, and Tessa Thompson are all back to give us more of the melodrama and pugilistic violence that we crave but this time they're guided by Steven Caple Jr., as Coogler chose to focus on a little independent film rather than return.
