Commander In Chief: 2-Disc Inaugural Edition Part 1

July 21, 2006 // 0 Comments

Lasting only one season, "Commander In Chief" was a casualty of behind-the-scenes shake-ups and mishandled time slots. Dying a sudden death, the show will go down as an anomaly; it garnered the highest ratings of any new show on the fall [...]

The Robert Altman Collection

May 23, 2006 // 0 Comments

Robert Altman is one of the most unusual of American directors, a constant risk-taker who has challenged Hollywood conventions, yet held in high esteem by the very industry that he defies. As such, he has had more than his share of failures, both critical [...]

The Italian Job

A remake of the 1969 film of the same name, ’The Italian Job’ turns out to be much more than a simple reshoot. While using generally the same premise – a gold heist – the film throws in a number of wicked twists and story elements that were not [...]

Alan J. Pakula is at home in the genre of heartfelt character drama, like ’Sophie’s Choice,’ as much as in intense thrillers. ’Klute’ is his 1971 thriller debut starring Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland in a film that was at its time quite [...]

I’ll admit right up front that I’m a bit of a space junkie. Books, movies, GI Joe Mercury 7 astronaut action figures — you name it — if it has to do with the space program I’m all over it. And, while I appreciate the attempts to be [...]

The Eagle Has Landed

October 26, 2000 // 0 Comments

’The Eagle Has Landed’ was the final film directed by the great John Sturges. While not as critically-acclaimed as his earlier works, it does display many of the same subtle touches that made films such as ’The Great Escape’ and ’The Magnificent [...]
