Army Wives: The Complete First Season

Buena Vista Home Entertainment In shops now Somewhere out there, Nicholas Sparks is eating a box of Triscuits and lovin’ on the cheese-fest that is so gooily close to his own oeuvre.  Much like cherry-flavoured cough syrup, the Lifetime series ‘Army Wives,’ is entirely too sweet and sticky as it goes down.  The dialogue is trite, to say the least, and some of the décor, is just too much too handle.  If you look closely at the office...

Sharkwater: DVD Review

Warner Home Video In shops now Ok, so here’s one you missed.  I know, because when the DVD showed up last month it got swept under the proverbial rug, and it took a lazy Sunday for me to finally take a look.  “Sharkwater” is a riveting feature documentary from filmmaker, Rob Stewart (a very young, very tan, very smart Canadian) who set out to do a pretty movie about how sharks are not the devilish creatures mass media would have us...
