Waking Sleeping Beauty
Waking Sleeping Beauty is about the animators and the studio, but it’s also a little bit about sharing with the world how important Howard Ashman was to Disney.
Toy Story 3 (Four-Disc Combo Pack)

Damages: The Complete Second Season
As season three of FX's character-driven drama, Damages, approaches, it's time to go back and examine the collision course everyone embarked upon in season two.
Californication: The Second Season
For pure comedy and absurdist humor, there’s nothing than the Runkle family adventures, whether it’s Charlie putting his quick-draw bedroom technique to use to help get a porn film finished or his coked-out yelling at Marcy that, “You never listen to me!”
Battlestar Galactica: Season 4.5
BSG started as a show about people and somewhere along the way got mired in the sci-fi schlock that is the detriment of the genre. While the people we followed each week became a part of the story, they were no longer the most important reason to watch on Friday nights.
Burn Notice Season 2 [Blu-Ray]
If there’s any show on USA deserving of the Blu-ray treatment it has to be Burn Notice. Set in, and filmed in, beautiful Miami Burn Notice follows ex-spy Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) as he tries to survive outside of his spy ring with help from friends and family. Season two picks straight up from where season one left off with Michael being strung along by a mysterious new player in the burn notice game he’s been involved in.
5 Reasons Chef Is The Best Kitchen Movie We've Ever Seen

Louie Season 4 Review: Still As Wonderful As Ever
Louis C.K. disappointed fans when he decided to take a brief sabbatical from his FX series Louie, leaving us without the schlubby middle aged mansploits last year. The comedian said he wanted to recharge, and maybe to a degree reinvent the series. So now that we’re on the cusp of Louie’s return, did he achieve any of his goals? To be honest, the first four episodes of the new season are odd to define.

Jim Henson Creature Shop Challenge Review: Using Imagination To Make The Impossible Possible

Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey Premieres To Low Ratings On Fox
Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey, a reboot of Carl Sagan’s popular science series, premiered last night and the numbers are not looking fantastic.
