Review - KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE (Blu-ray)

Comic book movies are certainly the norm these days, but it's a surprise when one hits the scene that doesn't overtly scream "comic book," nor rely on the expectations of a built-in fanbase. Interestingly, KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE fits that bill, taking some basic cues from its not-so-distant comic past (2012's Mark Millar/Dave Gibbons collaboration, THE SECRET SERVICE), but tossing much of the book aside in favor of new characters, locations, and more glaringly, the titular organization. When changes as drastic happen to beloved properties with a long history, fans cry foul, but KINGSMAN is spared such outrage due to just how new it is, and the fact that it's a damn fine spy film that goes over-the-top to ridiculously-awesome results.

STAR WARS REBELS Officially Announced for Blu-ray and DVD...

While I was there to check out a screening of Disney's DESCENDANTS (more on that later), I was excited to learn that STAR WARS REBELS: COMPLETE SEASON ONE had officially been announced for a home video release on Blu-ray and DVD for September 1st. No doubt our favorite show to enjoy as a family right now, SEASON ONE packs all 15 episodes ("Spark of Rebellion" is counted as a two-parter) alongside bonus material and interviews with the cast and crew.
