Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (20th Anniversary 4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy celebrates it’s 20th anniversary this year.  It’s quite hard to believe considering how fresh and ever-referenced it is now.  We even have a sequel that somehow managed to continue the good times almost ten years after the original.  Now, realistically, today, this movie could not be made the same.  For that, I’m grateful it came out in 2004. We live in a time where comedies like this just don’t exist anymore, and now, we have these 2000s classics to revel in, just before the film industry seemingly lost its sense of humor. Read on about Anchorman below, including a link to my colleague Brian White’s 2013 review, and my retrospective thoughts, along with the usual tech review! As always, you can get your copy of Anchorman by clicking the cover art at the end of the review!

Team America: World Police (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Just in time for its 20th anniversary, South Park’s Matt Stone and Trey Parker once convinced Paramount Pictures to give them tens of millions to make a puppetry comedy film aimed at spoofing Jerry Bruckheimer-produced action pictures, America’s foreign policy, and liberal Hollywood. The result was the modestly successful but well-enough reviewed Team America: World Police. Along with the 25th-anniversary release of South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut, the influential and unconventional comedy duo are making some 4K waves for the sake of their wacky, foul-mouthed animated features, and fans should certainly be happy.

Purple Rain (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Purple Rain remains one of the most iconic moments in 80’s history. Maybe even music history at this point. 1984 was a huge year for music and for films and to put the two together in such an excellent way was unheard of at the time unless you had a popular musical. Prince was already an established musical multi-hyphenate, with talent unmatched until his untimely death. 40 years later, how does Purple Rain stand up to other films like it? Go down memory lane with me about Purple Rain below and be on the lookout for the 4K UHD Blu-ray on June 25th! You can get a copy by clicking the cover art at the end of the review, too!

American Fiction (Blu-ray Review)

I love when a movie just feels different from the pack.  If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, watching and then reviewing films, I find great pleasure in being refreshed by new ones.  It’s very clear that movie fans and especially collectors take a big stake in watching films because they are a comfort to us.  So, what happens when a film is able to warm your heart, then break it, and then make you laugh and feel so warm? American Fiction is just such a film. Read more about American Fiction below and be sure to click the cover art at the end to order yourself a copy!

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut (25th Anniversary 4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Do you ever see an anniversary of a film or album you have seen a lot and think of how old you are now that those films are celebrating that milestone? It came with some utter shock when I learned that South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut was celebrating it’s 25th year.  The show came out a mere 2 years before the film, and like wildfire had taken TV audiences by storm. Sophomoric, gross and totally inappropriate for kids, the controversary and the praise has kept South Park going ever since. But now, 25 years after my first viewing, how does the film hold up?

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Guy Ritchie is a director we see a lot of films from, but at least for me, I don’t see a lot of people mentioning the variety of his work.  From crime capers like Snatch, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, or The Gentlemen to historical (using the term loosely) fare like King Arthur (something I liked despite it getting 0 praise…) to war films like The Covenant (an underseen excellent film), Ritchie excels at making medium scale films. Even when hes given bigger budgets for films like Sherlock Holmes or The Man from U.N.C.L.E., you can tell Ritchie is making movies he’d probably love to watch too. They are crowd pleasing, fun and never boring. So how does The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare (or TMOUW) stack up to the rest of his films? Find out below and order yourself a copy by clicking the cover art at the end!

The Iconic “Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip” Lands on 4K UHD Blu-ray in September!

Coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on September 10th!

If Richard Pryor were accused of being the funniest man in America, this film of his incredible stage act would be Exhibit A. It is proof beyond the shadow of a doubt! Shot live at the Hollywood Palladium, the film captures all the excitement, lunacy and electric force of a Pryor performance. And though he’s the only star of this hilarious show, he’s never alone on stage. With him is his amazing array of characterizations as he talks about his trip to Africa in search of his roots, his early days playing one-night gigs in Mafia-owned clubs and strip joints, and numerous other outrageous topics. Finally, he talks about Pryor on Fire—a recounting of the accident which nearly took his life—an episode he relates with wit and a touch of poignancy. You’ll laugh like you’ve never laughed before!
