Metro: Last Light's brand new live-action trailer "The Model" introduces us to a former fashion model trying to survive in Moscow's underground metro system.

Models! DUH. Let's check out this Metro: Last Light trailer and see if I'm right:

Modern Family's Sofia Vergara isn't the only Vergara out to conquer Hollywood. Baby sister Sandra made her movie debut in last year's Fright Night, and for her next role will have to get into fighting shape. Since she's also an avid gamer, Blair Herter figured a little training sesh with some of the best moves from Double Dragon, Dead or Alive 5 and Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition seemed like a good idea. Then he took a knee to the face...

Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified Review - PSV

Our reviewer Adam "Full Auto, Full Time" Rosenberg sat down with Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified for the PS Vita and came away more disappointed than Raul Menendez's sister at a beauty pageant. Straight forward level design and poor enemy AI? Huge pass.

Here's a snippet from our Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified review:

"The feeling that Declassified's campaign is a souped-up Spec Ops mode lingers after you jump into a mission as well. The franchise's focus on blockbuster spectacle in its campaigns is completely absent, replaced by straightforward running and gunning through a series of bland war-torn urban environments".

Woof. Sounds like this dog don't hunt. Check out the full review.

Have you had a chance to play it yet? Let us know your thoughts on CODBO: Declassified in the comments. Also let me know if I should have used "sounds like this game should have STAYED classified" at any point in this write up.

Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection Blu-ray Box Set Review

Looking for the perfect gift for that cinefile and/ or horror movie fan on your holiday list? Look no further than Universal’s impressive Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection box set that was released on Blu-ray earlier this year. This collection includes all the iconic Universal monster movies that shaped the American horror genre; Dracula (1931), Frankenstein (1931), The Mummy (1932), The Invisible Man (1933), Bride of Frankenstein (1935), The Wolf Man (1941), Phantom of the Opera (1943), and Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954). For the first time ever each film is presented in digitally restored 1080p High-Definition picture and DTS-HD Master Audio. Each film’s native aspect ratio (Full Frame 1:33:1 for all films other than Black Lagoon which was shot in Widescreen 1:85:1) and original audio format (2.0 Mono) is preserved and they all look and sound spectacular on Blu-ray.

I consider myself a fairly huge horror movie buff and I’d previously seen all these films multiple times on VHS, DVD, and even projected at 2nd run theaters. However, seeing these movies in digitally restored 1080p was, at the risk of sounding cliché, like seeing them for the first time. This box set is one of the best restoration jobs I’ve ever seen (and maybe the best black and white restorations currently available).
