Gold (Blu-ray Review)

Gold was a film that went through a bit of a lengthy journey to finally getting its way to production. Pitched as a more modern Treasure of the Sierra Madre, the film once had director Michael Mann attached to film it.  Mann eventually left it to film Blackhat.  Finally the film was made and released […]

‘Gold’ Finder (Movie Review)

By the end of Gold, I was more concerned with star Matthew McConaughey’s choice to invest himself into the character of Kenny Wells than the story I was just told.

Alexander Payne Lets You Settle In And Observe ‘Nebraska’ (Movie Review)

Something I have picked up on lately is how making something look easy on film has been becoming the mark of some very talented filmmakers.  It is one thing to get very flashy with the camera and set up elaborate shots, but it is another to make people and human conversations look natural.  Improvisation is […]

John Carpenter’s Body Bags – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

John Carpenter’s Body Bags is a an oft forgotten film of his and horror anthology.  It was a Showtime movie back in 1993, back when it wasn’t as “cool” to have an original idea on Showtime (Showtime did do Psycho IV as well).  In Carpenter’s mind, this was a one shot.  But Showtime wanted this […]

I remember hearing how The Bourne Identity was not an easy movie to make, with various production issues that caused the film to go over budget and be pushed back several months, before finally hitting theaters.  Before that film became a success, it was also stated that a sequel seemed unlikely, due to the difficulty […]
