Underworld (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Underworld is one of those films that I’ll never forget where in life I was when I saw it.  I’ll spare you the details, but I  remember that evening vividly as it was a good one.  It also came out at just the right time when the vampire craze was just ramping up and ironically was […]

Underworld: Awakening (Blu-ray Review)

The world needed another Underworld film, right?  Of course it did!  Don’t kid yourself for one single minute that Kate Beckinsale’s tight, formfitting black leather outfit doesn’t fill theater seats.  Of course it/she does!  And don’t fret!  Sony Pictures didn’t let us down.  Not by a long shot, in my opinion.  There’s plenty of Kate […]

I remember a handful of years back when word got out that a third Underworld movie was in production. Then word arrived that series star Kate Beckinsale would not be a part of the film.

‘Barney’s Version’ Is a Well Told Tale

Barney’s Version is a comedic drama, based on a very popular and prize winning Canadian novel, by Mordecai Richler. The film stars Paul Giamatti, in a fantastic performance, as a man who has led an interesting life, which we follow through several decades. The film boasts a solid supporting cast as well and manages to be a very entertaining picture throughout, as we see Giamatti’s character deal with the challenges he has faced, mainly involving his multiple marriages. While I could pick more of this film apart, based on what I have heard about the structure of the novel, the fact is that I really enjoyed watching this film, and it is on that merit that I would easily praise what it has to offer.
