Jaws (45th Anniversary 4K Blu-ray Review)

This spring has been representative of two things for me. One is that, for better or worse, being stuck in shelter-in-place has been helpful in some ways and hurtful in others. On a lighter note, two is that we have been blessed with so many fantastic catalog titles coming out to keep us happy at home.  Jaws is one such release, coming out on 4K Blu-ray (finally) in celebration of its 45th anniversary. The movie is just as you remember it being – tense, well crafted, slyly funny, and iconic. The new edition will certainly make the film’s fans very happy!

Like A Boss (Blu-ray Review)

Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne have both been steady contributors to comedy films over the last decade. Routinely we can count on them to make us laugh even if the films themselves aren’t great.  They both bring something to the table as far as singular joy and consistently light up the screen when they’re on! Seeing ads for Like A Boss I knew a few things: One, even if no one had seen the film it would draw comparison to Bridemaids and Girls Trip, their best films respectively; Two, despite the comparison, the film would be ripped to shreds by critics; and Three, audiences wouldn’t go see it regardless.  Right down to the comparisons to their other films, I was right.  Read my thoughts on Like A Boss below and be sure to click the paid Amazon link below to grab a copy of the film which is available on 4/21!

Just Mercy (Blu-ray Review)

Just Mercy was one of those films I didn’t hear about too much at the end of the year.  Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson should’ve been a huge draw for moviegoers, even with this film being a drama.  The surprising part for me, is that they all shine here (more on that below) and the story is injected with determination, community and love at its core.  Read more on Just Mercy below and be sure to click the paid Amazon link below to get your own copy too!

Dolittle (4K Blu-ray Review)

Robert Downey Jr. returns after his epic demise in Endgame with a little family movie reimagining Dr. Doolittle.  Rex Harrison’s first incarnation remains the one to beat, despite being dated. Eddie Murphy had a nice retread that worked for me in the 90’s but which wore off considerably as an adult. Does RDJ save the storied history of the doc who can talk to the animals? Or is it just as bad as you read it was?

Charlie’s Angels (4K Blu-ray Review)

As a kid, Charlie’s Angels was always a staple in my after-school viewing.  Between soaps and the courtroom drama of Judge Judy, the angels always made an appearance.  In my teen years, I was given the modern retread of the show in the movie from 2000 with Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore.  The first movie was fun, funny and well made. While not critically well received, audiences loved it and it spawned a terrible sequel that still managed to win over audiences.  Now, here we are 20 years later and here is the home release of Charlie’s Angels. All joking aside, this film didn’t do well with critics or audiences. I can’t say I disagree with the gripes, but I was also pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up enjoying the film.  More on that below!

The Ten Commandments (2020 Digibook Blu-ray Review)

Cecil B. DaMille was a visionary. Without him, we wouldn’t know anything about grand scale filmmaking.  The movies he made were iconic for not just the look, but also the great lengths taken to make the films he made. The Ten Commandments was obviously a film property that DeMille was ever passionate about.  First in 1923, DeMille made an ambitious silent version of The Ten Commandments that now acts like a blueprint for the longer, grander 1956 version.  The material was familiar, but using the newer technology, widescreen lenses and a much larger scale, what became was a religious epic masterpiece still unrivaled 64 years later.
