Sabotage [Blu-ray] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger
Sabotage [Blu-ray] Blu-ray ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger
I enjoyed Sabotage, in fact I enjoyed it way more than I thought I might - it's a good old fashioned, shoot em up action film and succeeds on those terms.

Arnie is a DEA agent who heads up his own crack team of sturdy ass kickers.

WWE: Wrestling's Greatest Factions [Blu-ray] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Hulk Hogan
This is another strange release from WWE. Sounds like a classic on paper - chuck the greatest factions in wrestling history together on a bumper Blu Ray then sit back and enjoy the magic. It doesn't quite pan out like that though - there's still much to enjoy on here but due to overcrowding and some strange choices, it's not the 5 star beauty it could be. Perhaps 3 1/2 stars is actually about right, there's fun to be had but there's little here that's absolutely essential. I would've preferred less factions covered and more action from the real big boys.

Each faction gets a short video which features a blur of fun clips and contributions from the usual talking heads who basically… Read more
