Hooper (Blu-ray Review)

Here we are in 1978 where Burt Reynolds is peaking so very damn hard.  While some may now be like “Hoop-what?”, Hooper was a big deal in 1978.  The film was a follow up to the massive hit, Smokey and the Bandit the year prior.  Smokey would have been the biggest film of 1977 had […]

Norma Rae (Blu-ray Review)

A little side note to my Blu-ray review of Norma Rae to start off.  My screenwriting professor in college’s big claim to fame in his movie making career was working on this movie.  It was an Academy Award nominated film and the one that nabbed Sally Field her first Best Actress statue.  While I don’t […]
