It is pretty fitting to see this year’s AFI Fest kick off with a film that tells the story of maverick filmmaker and business tycoon Howard Hughes.

‘Tower Heist’ Is Annoyingly Entertaining

The title of this film, as bland as it is, certainly cuts to the chase.  This is a simple heist comedy that is fairly entertaining, even as it slightly underuses the talents of its ensemble cast.  Brett Ratner, a director better known for his reputation as a hack director responsible for some entertaining successes (Rush […]

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (Blu-ray Review)

So truth be told, I am not a big fan of the 80s teen comedies from John Hughes.  I do have two large exceptions to this however.  One is Weird Science, which I always enjoy watching.  The other is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which is just a great coming-of-age story about our hero and his […]

Wonderful World (Blu-ray Review)

As far as Matthew Broderick films go, I haven’t found one I don’t like and Wonderful World is no different.  We’ve seen him dance around in The Producers and of course who could forget him as the adorable slacker in Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, but now we see him as a pessimistic career proof-reader and failed children’s folksinger.  It’s an […]
