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 […]

‘Alexander: The Ultimate Cut’ on Blu-ray & DVD June 3rd!

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Oliver Stone’s epic historical drama Alexander, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Alexander: The Ultimate Cut Blu-ray™ on June 3. Because the film’s original 2004 theatrical release required a running time of less than 3 hours, within strictly defined codes for violence and sexuality, the director felt he was […]

Brandon’s Wishlist: 14 Blu-ray Hopefuls For 2014

Happy new release Tuesday!  It’s also the first Tuesday in November.  Meaning, all the dates for Blu-ray releases through the end of the year are pretty much set and locked in by now.  There could be a wild card for late December thrown in somewhere, but it’s highly unlikely it would be an older catalogue […]

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 […]

In 1988, director Ron Howard and writer/executive producer George Lucas teamed up to make a fantasy/adventure film called Willow.  The story revolves around a reluctant farmer, who aspires to be a wizard, teaming with the greatest sword fighter in the land in order to protect a special baby from an evil queen during a magical, […]

WILLOW Comes To Blu-ray For The First Time In March

This March, the enjoyable fantasy adventure film, Willow, hits Blu-ray for the first time.  For those unaware, Willow is a classic good vs. evil fantasy story developed by George Lucas and director Ron Howard.  This is a film that I grew up with and while it is not necessarily the benchmark of fantasy adventure films […]

Blood Out (Blu-ray Review)

Blood Out delivers what it can, but that is not very much.  I do not tend to put much stock into films like this for good reason; they tend to suck.  A direct-to-blu-ray action flick implies a few things – the distributors could not find a way to properly market the film, a good enough […]

Kill The Irishman on Blu-ray!

As many times as I was asked to see this film I reluctantly missed out on it in the theaters.  But now that I know I only have a short wait for the Blu-ray presentation I’m pretty sure I can hold out.  And I suppose, since I do live in Cleveland, I should really be […]

‘Kill the Irishman’ Relives Life of Mobster Danny Greene

Mobster movies and shows like Goodfellas and The Sopranos always bring out that underworld fascination with American audiences. The lifestyles are so provocative, violent and immoral, yet many, myself included, flock to this material like moths to a flame. The latest in the line of American mafia flicks is Kill the Irishman and contains an impressive […]
