A Bigger Splash (Blu-ray Review)

Putting a couple Oscar nominees and two more talented performers in a film structured like a 4-person play is one thing. Setting that film on a remote Italian island adds an extra layer.

Far From The Madding Crowd (Blu-ray Review)

It was nice to revisit Far From The Madding Crowd, as it is one of my early favorites of the year. The film may seem like a traditional period drama, but it does well for the genre by working as a very watchable one. Thanks to strong performances, tight editing that appears to cut away […]

When Oscar time came around there was much buzz about a film with a peculiar name called Bullhead. It was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, but lost to something else that I can’t remember. Soon after the Oscar nomination, or was it during, nevermind, an amazing poster was created by the folks over at […]
