The Martian

July 29, 2016 // 0 Comments

With all the action-laden bombast that is flickering across screens these days, it is easy to forget sometimes that good films do not really need to cater to the attention span of a ferret, wear capes or pull viewers with one explosive set piece after [...]

True Crime

Looking over Clint Eastwood’s long-standing career, one cannot help but be impressed. Whether it’s his career as an actor or his work as a director, Eastwood is almost like malt whiskey. He has gotten better with age. Hard to imagine, but “True [...]

Zootopia

To be perfectly frank, I was not expecting anything special from this movie when I first dropped by my local theater with a friend to check it out during its theatrical run. Ever since the release of “Frozen” and its overhyped popularity, I was [...]

Gods of Egypt

4K Ultra HD is eagerly trying to build a platform for itself, making sure the people can see and experience the difference dramatically increased resolution in pixels and color can make. Granted, it is a hard sell, one way or the other. As long as there [...]

For years, I have been calling for movie adaptations of Terry Brooks’ Shannara novels, and with the incredible success of the “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” movies, not to mention the television success of “Game of Thrones”, [...]

Mr. Selfridge: Season 4

May 18, 2016 // 0 Comments

As eagerly as I was awaiting the release of the fourth and final season of “Mr. Selfridge” on Blu-Ray, as much have I been dreading it, in a way. Knowing the story and the tragic fall from grace of this galleon-head figure, season three already [...]

Suspicion

As Warner Brothers Home Entertainment is continuing to bolster its Warner Archive Collection with Blu-Ray titles, one recent addition stood out for me — Alfred Hitchcock’s 1941 thriller “Suspicion.” Very much in the vein of “Rebecca, ” which [...]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

March 28, 2016 // 0 Comments

When “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” arrived in movie theaters, I must have been the only person not to go and see it. To be honest, at that point, I was completely Star Wars-ed out, oversaturated by the incessant advertising and promotions leading up [...]

The Richie Blackmore Story

February 25, 2016 // 0 Comments

Richie Blackmore is a legend. But even though he walks the rock pantheon and has inspired countless musicians, Richie Blackmore is also a mystery. Much has been said about his escapades, his clashes with his fellow musicians, his emotional outbursts and [...]
