White Dog (Masters of Cinema) (Dual Format Edition&hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Samuel FULLER
Emotional and controversial, White Dog is not a Cujo style horror. Nor is it as racially controversial as its history would make it seem, as far more hard-hitting films about race have made their point more succinctly than this. However, it is well directed and gripping.
When an aspiring actress hits a runaway dog with her car, she adopts it to save it from being put down at the dog pound, and it proves to be a loving and life-saving pet.

Unwilling to lose hope, she… Read more

The movie is full of badly… Read more
Watch Dogs (PC DVD) by Ubisoft
Watch Dogs (PC DVD) by Ubisoft
I loved Watchdogs. Like all the best open-world games, it had a strong single-player plot that was compelling to finish, and a lot of enjoyably distracting side missions to complete if you felt like spending a little more time in the world. All of the main roles are well voice acted (many of them exceptionally well), and the character animations are excellent to go with it. The emotional maturity of the game is also a nice change, as the story has a lot of heart to it (although that can be at odds with the option to destroy half the city if you choose to).
The game has a reputation system that rewards you if you choose to save citizens from crime, because they won't call the police… Read more
