Ernest & Celestine (Blu-ray Review)

For the past several years, the Oscars hand out nominations to a handful of animated films and while Pixar and DreamWorks tend to be shoe-ins for nominations, there are also a few films that tend to sneak in, despite not being big blockbusters.  Ernest & Celestine is just one of those films.  This French feature, […]

Fargo (Blu-ray Review)

Crossing another feature off my list of modern classics that are favorite films mine, which I have now written a review for, Fargo has returned to Blu-ray once again, with a new remastered transfer.  This Oscar-winning Coen Brothers film has had its share of releases in the past and even if there is still bound […]

Cult Favorite “Fargo” Arrives Remastered on Blu-ray April 1

Not sure how much I can say about Fargo, beyond just, “It’s brilliant”, but here it goes.  Fargo was one of the best films of the 90s, one of my favorite films ever, and is full of great performances, direction, and dark humor.  It is a fantastic film and now it is getting an all […]

NBFF Reviews: Blood Type Unknown and A Single Shot

Friday night at the 2013 Newport Beach Film Festival allowed me the chance to see two films.  One was a romance drama with a twist called Blood Type: Unknown.  The other was a dramatic thriller called A Single Shot.  I was very pleased with one of these films, but still enjoyed my time at the […]

Take The Time And Enjoy ‘The Sessions’

The Sessions is the kind of film that could easily be brushed aside, given the premise.  You could boil it down to its basic parts:  a crippled man meets someone new and overcomes some sort of adversity, and just think of it as plain Oscar bait.  There is also the chance that someone could find […]

The Lincoln Lawyer (Blu-ray Review)

I am thrilled that a new Matthew McConaughey movie has arrived at my door.  While I love Matthew McConaughey in a completely superficial way (he’s hot), I’m glad to see that this isn’t the millionth Matthew McConaughey romantic comedy.  While he does a great job as a romantic comedy lead, most of those movies are […]

Don’t Judge Until You See The Lincoln Lawyer on Blu-ray

Here’s a film I don’t know much about other than the fact that I thought its trailer looked good and I was upset that I was away on a business trip when I had a chance to attend the press screening for it.  So I guess it’s redemption day when the movie of the moment […]

Benny & Joon (Blu-ray Review)

You gotta love the early 90’s when it comes to films and filmmaking.  The fashion sense was still transitioning from the 80’s, so there was that learning curve that we all had to get through.  Johnny Depp was nowhere near a superstar back then, but was still seen as one of the few recognizable actors […]

Hitch A Ride With ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’, If You Can Afford It

For a March release coming out a week after winter’s summer film – Battle: Los Angeles, it certainly feels like The Lincoln Lawyer is quite the event itself.  Ads have been everywhere for this movie, but I can certainly see its appeal.  There is a large list of actors involved, the story is based off […]
