My Girl (Blu-ray Review)

Watching My Girl brought back a lot of fond memories of the 1991 coming-of-age comedy-drama. It is a film that I have always been a fan of, but not one I have seen in quite some time. Seeing the film again, it holds up very well, as the story is simple enough, but quite effective […]

Get On Up (Blu-ray Review)

Given the strength of the lead performance and some other aspects, at this point, I am pretty fine with saying Get On Up was one of the more underrated films from 2014.  I am a big fan of James Brown and was happy to go in to this film pretty open-minded (as I generally do).  […]

Tammy (Blu-ray Review)

If there is one film that deservingly has the right and proudly should be able to give the middle finger write at box office pundits (that don’t write for Forbes), its Tammy.  This $20 million budgeted “one for me” film opening with a good $21 million opening weekend over 4th of July and because it […]

Get On Up Is Out Of Sight (Movie Review)

There is a level of familiarity to musician biopics at this point that tends to keep me from becoming too excited about the prospect of a new one.  With varying degrees of separation, they mostly tend to follow a formula, much like any film that hits similar beats as its predecessors within the same sub-genres […]

Tammy Is Sad, Messy, and Occasionally Endearing (Movie Review)

It is unfortunate that Tammy does not quite work overall.  Here we have a character-based, R-rated comedy, featuring a large number of female characters, with ideas that extend beyond big-budgeted set pieces, and it is arriving in theaters just in time for the Fourth of July.  Melissa McCarthy fans may certainly enjoy the opportunity given […]

Steve Martin: The Television Stuff (DVD Review)

Steve Martin is one of the most beloved and iconic talents in American comedy.  Until now, however, his body of work on television has been largely unavailable on DVD. That all changed on September 18, 2012, with the release of Steve Martin: The Television Stuff from Shout! Factory and SOFA Entertainment.  From the stand-up act that made […]

Celebrate the 15th anniversary of a killer comedy hit — now available on Blu-ray for the first time with a sensational new digital restoration.

‘The Campaign’ Is Sturdy Candidate

For all the big budget, summer action/sci-fi/fantasy flicks that have recently come out, it is nice to also get the big budget, carefree comedy around this time of year as well.  The Campaign is a silly comedy that revolves around Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as rivals in an election, where both men are in […]
