Double Dragon Collector's Edition Coming Jan. 22 Because Why Not

Double Dragon Collector's Edition on Blu-ray and DVD
From director James Yukich (Shawn Mendes: Live at the Greek Theatre), producers Don Murphy (Transformers, Natural Born Killers), Jane Hamsher (From Hell) and Alan Schechter (Showdown), with a screenplay written by Michael Davis (Shoot 'Em Up) and Emmy® Award Winner Peter Gould (Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad) comes the cult classic movie based on the video game smash hit.

Double Dragon roars to life with amazing special effects, spectacular action sequences, and a knock-about sense of humor. It's the year 2007, and what remains of LA is now ''New Angeles'', a city ravaged by earthquakes, tidal waves and vicious gangs. The evil tycoon Koga Shuko (Robert Patrick, Terminator 2: Judgment Day) is obsessed with finding the two halves of a talisman known as the ''Double Dragon'', which will give him awesome mystical powers. Two teenaged brothers, Jimmy (Mark Dacascos, John Wick 3) and Billy Lee (Scott Wolf, Party of Five) find themselves in possession of the amulet's missing half, thrusting them into the adventure of their lives. With the help of Maria (Alyssa Milano, Charmed) and her vigilante group ''The Power Corps'', Jimmy and Billy must summon all of their courage, resourcefulness and martial-arts skills to stop the villain's malevolent plan.

Emmet Cancels the Apocalypse in the LEGO Movie 2 Holiday Short

LEGO Movie 2 Holiday Short
We all have that friend who is eternally sunny...maybe even annoyingly so. You want to wallow in a good, solid funk and there they are, singing and trying to hug you. Gross. My friends all love Halloween, so at the very least, when the Holidays kick into full gear and the Christmas music starts getting blasted from every communist lawn, I can take comfort that I will see Tim Burton-esque decorations in my feed, trees full of eyeballs and, of course, elves on shelves...on fire. Today, we celebrate both the eternally sunny optimist and the morose, doom-sayer who can appreciate a light display that stings the eyes...because you can't have LEGO Emmet without LEGO Batman.

Your New Christmas Tradition: Anna and the Apocalypse

Anna and the Apocalypse


They've finally invented it...a cure for those holiday blues. Just imagine..the constant struggle for cash to pay your bills...the annoying questions from friends and family as to why you've not married and reproduced yet...all your societal responsibilities...gone..in a flash....or rather in a bite! When you think about it, a zombie apocalypse isn't really the worst thing that could happen to us. The creators of Anna and the Apocalypse seem to agree with this theory, and made it Christmassy....and added music!

ABC Picks up Agents of SHIELD for 7th Season

ABC renews Marvel's Agents of SHIELD for 7th Season
When last I visited with the Son of Coul, he and his merry band of ass kickers had just defeated an evil life model decoy hell bent on creating a virtual reality where HYDRA won and..well..everyone else lost. At least I think that's what was happening. It's been a while. After that, there was some bit where they were in the future in space and everything played like a so-so Syfy Channel ongoing series circa 2013. They had the crummy dystopian fashion sense, the depressing story line and, from week to week, I really couldn't figure out where they were going...so I bailed. Granted...I have a very short attention span. I've yet to make it all the way through the Batman movie where Poison Ivy chews up the screen and Bane looks like he's had a bad reaction to bee stings..like..all over....but maybe that's for the best. At any rate, it seems Agents of SHIELD marches on...and I have some catching up to do. FIRE UP MY NETFLIX!!
