The Doors (4K Blu-ray Review)

Jim Morrison is the epitome of a rock star. Someone with a mythic personality, innate sexuality, and a talent that was absolutely unique. He also had his demons, struggling with the usual rock star addictions. In the film The Doors we are shown the quick rise of Jim and his band. Oliver Stone has his […]

Batman Forever (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

As we close the book on the Tim Burton-helmed Batman era, we set sights on Joel Schumacher’s turn at “bat”. Batman Forever proved the biggest opening weekend and highest grossing live action film of 1995 (Only Toy Story earned more money). It was a pretty stunning bounce back for the caped crusader as it reinvented […]

‘The Snowman’ Melts Quickly (Movie Review)

I know.  Say no more.  I already know what you’re thinking.  The Snowman is a ridiculous title for a crime thriller movie.  I concur with you.  However, even if it should melt after the First Act there’s always Rebecca Ferguson in it.  I have nothing but rave things to say about her.  So why not.

Song To Song (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Terrence Malick has been on a tear in this current decade (Do we call it “the tens” or whatever?). It once took the man thirty eight years to put out five films, now he’s put out five works in the last six or seven years (One of said films is a documentary). I actually still […]

Heat – Director’s Definitive Edition (Blu-ray Review)

In the Fall of 2016, I was able to attend a screening of Heat at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which boasted a brand new 4K restoration of the film, supervised by writer/director Michael Mann. Not that I needed a reminder of how great Mann’s Los Angeles crime saga is, but I […]

Twixt (Blu-ray Review)

Those who have wanted legendary director Frances Ford Coppola to return to horror after bringing audiences Bram Stoker’s Dracula way back in the early 90s, may have deep regrets after seeing Twixt.  This experimental horror film from Coppola is misguided in almost every way, regardless of its campy intentions.  For those who tend to enjoy […]

What A Twist! Francis Ford Coppola’s “Twixt” Arrives on Blu-ray July 23

This should be interesting.  I have been hearing about Francis Ford Coppola’s latest experimental film Twixt for quite some time.  It was taken on the road and made out to be an interactive film experience, complete with 3D, a mix of color and black and white imagery, and various means to keep the audience very […]
