DVD Review: Witches of East End: The Complete Season 2

Witches of East EndThe television series Witches of East End is loosely based on the book of the same name by Melissa de la Cruz. The series follows a family of witches, the Beauchamps. The family is led by the powerful witch Joanna (Julia Ormond) who is mother of adult children, two girls, Freya (Jenna Dewan Tatum) and Ingrid (Rachel Boston), and a boy, Frederick (Christian Cooke). They also live with Joanna's sister, Wendy (Madchen Amick).

The family was originally royalty from Asgard, but after a war, the women were banished by Joanna's father, King Nikolaus (Steven Berkoff). They escaped through a portal that led them to earth.

The second season picks up from the cliffhanger from season one. The portal has been opened and someone came through. Joanna is still dying from Argentium poison given to her by Penelope (Virginia Madsen). Freya had broken off her engagement with Dash (Eric Winter) (Penelope's son), realizing she was truly in love with his brother, Killian (Daniel DiTomasso), who she thinks left town before she could tell him. In reality, Dash was angry and hit him with his newly acquired powers, and thought he killed him.

DVD Review: Ex Machina - A Unique and Unnerving Film That Can't Be Missed

Ex MachinaProgrammer Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) is at work when he wins a competition to spend a week with the company's CEO Nathan (Oscar Isaac) at his estate. Odd and reclusive, Nathan is a genius who has been working on a secret study of artificial intelligence and has chosen Caleb to be a part of an experiment. He is expected to evaluate a female android, Ava (Alicia Vikander), and decide if she has a consciousness, but things are not as black and white as he first is led to believe.

The film starts by plopping you right into the meat of the story with Caleb dropped into Nathan's world without much explanation of why other than he won a competition. He has no idea what's coming, and with only that lead up, it helps to make the audience feel as Caleb does. Caleb is not quick to trust the strange and obscenely rich man, who is very unnerving and suspicious at times, which makes you question everything, including even the basis of the test.

DVD review: The Lazarus Effect - on Blu-ray Now

The Lazarus EffectsThe Lazarus Effect follows medical researchers Frank Walton (Mark Duplass) and his fiancée Zoe McConnell (Olivia Wilde) who developed a serum, codenamed "Lazarus," originally intended to extend the time that people can safely be brought back from dying without brain damage.

Not only that, but after a trial with a dog, they discover it does much more than even they had thought, giving the animal increased brain activity and aggression.

After the company that funded their research is bought out and they seize everything for their unauthorized animal testing, the team decides they must recreate the experiment as proof of their creation, and break back into the lab.

However, before they can complete another resurrection, Zoe is fatally electrocuted during the experiment.

DVD Review: Broadchurch: The Complete Second Season - A Gripping Mystery That Keeps You Guessing

BroadchurchSeason two of BBC America's award-winning mystery drama series Broadchurch picks up right where the first season finale left off: Detective Ellie Miller (Olivia Colemans)'s husband Joe (Matthew Gravelle) has been arrested after confessing to the murder of local boy Danny Latimer (Oskar McNamara). Miller and the town struggle to accept that fact and move past it as they face the trial that will continue to tear everyone apart.

Rather than a new mystery, the second season delves into the original murder case of the two girls that Detective Alec Hardy (David Tennant) couldn't solve, that was only touched upon in season one, when a key witness returns to Broadchurch seeking Hardy's help.

The new whodunnit, created by Chris Chibnall, is just as thrilling and gripping as season one and really pulls you into the investigation. The script is beautifully written and performed brilliantly. Tennant and Coleman especially fit their roles perfectly. It's fun to watch the two detectives banter back and forth. Andre Buchan and Jodie Whittaker as Mark and Beth Latimer and Charlotte Beaumont as their daughter Chloe are very believable as the grieving family. Arthur Darvill also returns as Reverend Paul Coates and is excellent in the role.

DVD Review: Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death - Creepy Visuals Without the Scares - Out Now

Woman in Black 2: Angel of DeathFollowing the success of the original movie from 2012, The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death had the makings of another great horror film: the creepy sets and atmosphere, a well-chosen cast, and trailers that made you want to see what the angry spirit was up to now. I was quite excited to receive the Blu-ray. The original film starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter franchise) was haunting and full of great scares that were reminiscent of more classic horror films. Upon the start of the sequel; however, I was sadly disappointed.

Although the visuals were there and the actors did a fine job with what they were given, the scares were not, which let's face it, is the most important part of a horror film. It felt disjointed at points and dragged on at others. The first third of the film to me felt wasted and nothing really occurred until forty-five minutes in.

The script and story itself wasn't bad; it was actually decently interesting, but something about the delivery was off.
