The Karate Kid (40th Anniversary Edition) (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Karate Kid 4K ReviewThe Karate Kid is one of those films that was almost always a big part of my movie-watching as a kid.  I was drawn to the underdog story of Daniel Larusso, who, with a great deal of spunk and determination, proved himself to be a teenage hero for some.  We are now at the 40th Anniversary of The Karate Kid, and time sure has flown. The message of the film remains the same and continues to inspire its audiences to this day, as evidenced by the spin-off series Cobra-Kai.

Bob Marley: One Love (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I have been a fan of Bob Marley as long as I’ve known music.  The overwhelming empowerment of the lyrics, or the glimpses into life in Trenchtown, Jamaica are eye opening and ethereal. There has yet to be a major reggae artist with the impact of Marley. Even the legendary artist’s talented children and grandchildren can’t say they’ve been as successful.  In Bob Marley: One Love, we find Bob in 1976 looking for ways to unify his homeland, not with politics but music and ideals of love and togetherness.  Find out more about Bob Marley: One Love in the review and be sure to click the cover art at the end to order a copy of the standard edition or the steelbook variation of this 4K UHD Blu-ray release!
