AFI Fest 2016: Mifune: The Last Samurai (Movie Review)

Looking at the documentary Mifune: The Last Samurai, I am reminded of Gimme Danger, the Jim Jarmusch documentary about Iggy & The Stooges, which I didn’t get around to reviewing. That film and this one, which details the life legendary actor Toshiro Mifune, have little to offer outside of an engaging, cinematic version of Wikipedia […]

‘The BFG’ Is Bubbling Fantabulous Goodness (Movie Review)

Sometimes you have to try and channel Roald Dahl to describe his films. Steven Spielberg certainly seems to be a fan, as he has done all he can to replicate the 1982 novel of the same name. Given both the Beard’s directorial sensibilities and being his first Disney movie there is perhaps almost too light […]

Innerspace (Blu-ray Review)

When the e-mail for Innerspace came across my e-mail, I got pretty excited.  This is a film I hadn’t revisited since the 80s (Maybe early 90s).  Its one I remember liking quite a bit.  I believe ABC used to run this as their Sunday Night Movie for a couple years straight.  I remember really enjoying […]

“Clever girl.”  Well this is more exciting than I was expecting.  Jurassic World is coming and while I may not have many nice things to say about the previous Jurassic Park sequels (I like 3 more than The Lost World though), I still have a continue interest in dinosaurs and the world that these films exist in.  Now we […]

Jurassic Park 3D (Movie Review)

I was sitting with a pretty, young lady some 21 years ago,  waiting to watch Indecent Proposal, when a preview came on for Jurassic Park.  I can still see the raptor’s eye peering into the kitchen window just before it fogged from the dinosaurs breath.  My date grabbed my arm tight and said, “we are definitely coming […]
