The Freshman Blu-Ray Review (Retro VHS Style)

Image

The Freshman arrives on Blu-ray as part of Mill Creek Entertainment's Retro VHS Style series, with packaging designed to look like the VHS videocassettes of the 1980s and 1990s. Several other titles in the series have already been reviewed on The Corner Penthouse, and I'm always excited when Mill Creek announces more. It's fun to see if it's a title I used to own on VHS, or one whose trailer I remember seeing at the start of some other VHS tape, or even some obscure movie I've never heard of before.

Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde - U.S. MGM Special Edition DVD Easter Eggs

Image

There are many websites devoted to DVD Easter Eggs, though they don't seem to have been updated in quite some time. While most DVD Easter Eggs, and some Blu-ray Easter Eggs, are listed on these sites, there are some that either aren't listed, or have incomplete or incorrect information out there. When I find that I own a disc with eggs that isn't properly represented elsewhere online, I will take it upon myself to put the correct and complete information out there for all to enjoy. Today, I'll show you the eggs on the Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003) U.S. MGM Special Edition DVD.

Your Highness (2011) Mill Creek Blu-ray Review

Image

Mill Creek recently re-released Your Highness on Blu-ray. Both the Theatrical and Unrated cuts of the movie are on the disc (see differences here), though I only watched the Unrated cut. My review is based on that version of the movie, which still contains lots of R-rated language and some female nudity (not from Natalie Portman, who's uses a body double in the film).

eBay Claims That Hollywood Movie Studios Sell Counterfeit Digital Copy Vouchers To Their Retail Customers

Image

I have been an eBay member since January 4, 2003, and selling on the site for over 10 years now. My sales suck because eBay does everything in their power to hinder me. I have to find ways to work around the obstacles eBay puts in my way to sabotage any chances I have of selling items. I have already written a series of articles about eBay, who clearly has some sort of vendetta against me. I have no other explanation for the myriad of stupid reasons they've given for taking down listings of mine over and over again. I've written about some of these in the past, but I've never written about all of them. I'll write about them if they happen again, but for now, I'll just concentrate on the latest eBay bullshit.

The Walking Dead: World Beyond - Season 1 Quick Review

Image

The Walking Dead: World Beyond is the latest installment in the successful The Walking Dead franchise. (I previously reviewed the Blu-ray releases of The Walking Dead - Season 9 and Fear The Walking Dead - Season 4.) Although it premiered back in October 2020, I finally got a chance to watch the episodes on my DVR.

The series, set in Nebraska ten years after the zombie apocalypse, features four teenage protagonists and focuses on "the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad." The series is scheduled to only air for two seasons. No more, no less. Well, here's my quick review of why that seems to be two seasons too many...

Little Judith Puts These Teens To Shame

I struggled just to finish the first two episodes of "The CW presents The Walking Dead" and that's it. I'm done with this. Fear The Walking Dead at least got me for a season and a half before I checked out of it, only to come back when they rebooted it in Season 4. This one won't be so lucky, especially since it's only going to last two seasons. These teens, supposedly, grew up in the zombie apocalypse, yet act like they know nothing about it. Little Judith Grimes from the parent series is ten years younger than them and does a better job of dealing with the zombies. There are other issues with the series, as well, including bad acting and an unnecessary traumatic gay backstory that (at least in the first two episodes) has no bearing on the proceedings and seems to have only been included for the sake of checking off a box on a list.  I'd write a more detailed review, but honestly, I've given this series as much of my time as I feel like giving it.

Neca $9.99 Pop Culture and Sci-Fi & Horror Blind Bag Unboxing Review #3 (Duplicate Items)

Image

I reviewed several of Neca's themed blind bags in the past. After what happened the last time - buying two Pop Culture bags that were EXACTLY the same - I soured on them and was on the verge of never buying them again. Well, I bought four more bags from Target the other day - two Pop Culture and two Sci-Fi & Horror - and I don't think I will be buying any more. Read on to find out why...
