Warcraft is an enjoyable film. The fans of the game waited a long time for its release, and I believe it holds up to their standards. Some of the actors were better than others (performance-wise), but it's an entertaining film. The level of detail is stunning on both the 4K HDR and Standard 1080p HD versions. If you're a fan of the game and want to see the wickedness come to life, don't hesitate to pick up this 4K Blu-ray.

Beauty and the Beast is one of the darker tales in the Disney vault. It’s not quite The Black Cauldron, but it certainly has some frightening moments that travel right to and through the Beast. The dark tone is helped out and lightened up by the exquisite soundtrack, which features some of the best songs of any Disney flick. It’s the full package and definitely one of my favorites.
Beauty isn't Everything, It's the Only Thing!
The Neon Demon is a stunning film that takes a wild turn into the horror genre. When the twisted world of fashion and modeling gets turned on its head, viewers better hold on. You'll think this is a simple story of the wacky world of modeling and fashion, but it's much, much more than that. The industry's dark side is exposed in this story, and it never slows down.

That is one expensive jacket. Check out the details below.
SANTA CLARA, Calif., (September 27, 2016) – Leading interactive entertainment media publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today officially announces its TEKKEN® 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket. Blending the world of high-fashion with iconography from the beloved TEKKEN franchise, BANDAI NAMCO has created a very special, limited edition statement piece that any connoisseur of fashion or TEKKEN fan would be proud to own.
Gracing fashion runways from Paris to Milan, bomber style Sukajan Jackets are experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Today’s Sukajan Jackets exhibit decades of stylistic evolution and updates since their inception after World War II when homebound American GIs were seeking exotic souvenirs to bring home from abroad. Featuring very distinct and intricate embroidered patterns sewn upon fabrics that were sometimes taken from used parachutes; Sukajan Jackets have become iconic symbols of freedom and rebellion, are a mainstay of urban Japanese fashion culture, Yakuza style, and have been featured in countless films.
Designed by former Project Runway contestant, Carrie Sleutkaya, the TEKKEN 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket features a reversible design that showcases two very different designs, both inspired by Heihachi Mishima, one of the most pivotal and controversial characters in TEKKEN. The “statement” side of the jacket features royal burgundy and gold coloring with a highly detailed embroidery of Fūjin, the Japanese God of Wind on the back, while the more traditional side of the jacket re-imagines Heihachi’s signature dark gray gi in luxurious stain charmeuse with the roaring tiger on the back. Each jacket is crafted with painstaking attention to detail, from the eye-catching dye sublimated patterns to the custom ribbing and welt pockets, the TEKKEN 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket delivers an unparalleled level of detail using over 440,000 stitches in its intricate embroidery work. Lastly, the TEKKEN 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jackets will be produced in an extremely limited quantity with each jacket numbered individually to preserve its exclusivity. Offered at a suggested retail price of $449.00 USD, the TEKKEN 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket is available now for pre-order in unisex sizes ranging from small to 2XL at the BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment online store. All TEKKEN 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket orders will also be accompanied with a copy of TEKKEN 7 at no additional charge*.
*Physical copies of TEKKEN 7 that come with the purchase of the TEKKEN 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket at no additional cost will be delivered separately to jacket owners upon the game’s launch in early 2017.

"Steve and Victor impressed me with all that they have done with Team Liquid and I am truly excited to work with the best people across a broad spectrum of businesses to create a unique esports enterprise," said Leonsis. "This company has the potential to create all new experiences for esports audiences worldwide."
The CEO of aXiomatic will be Bruce Stein, an executive who has been CEO/COO of such companies as Mattel Toys, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Kenner Products (Hasbro) as well as several successful start-up companies.

Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice is more positive than negative. It is developed to tap that deep nostalgia that Sonic fans have for the series, while bringing in some new elements that make it more than just an arcade platformer. While it isn’t perfect, especially the controls, it’s still a very entertaining experience that should satisfy the Sonic the Hedgehog fanbase. Sanzaru Games did a fabulous job with it and I hope they continue to make more Sonic games in the very near future.

Salem’s Lot still stands as one of the more complete miniseries from the King library. It’s slow at the beginning, but contains solid atmosphere and creepy characters in a horror setting that combine to drive home the story.
