The Grand Budapest Hotel (Blu-ray Review)

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a film not only packed with characters, sets, costumes, and all the things that tend to typify writer/director Wes Anderson’s style, it is also packed with story.  It is becoming more and more clear to me how much Anderson enjoys having films that are about stories being told to an […]

Crack the code with Dom Hemingway on Blu-ray July 22

Even knowing what this film is based on the trailer I have seen, my gut reaction continues to be, “What the hell is this?”  Jude Law playing a jerk and bringing along Withnail & I‘s Richard E. Grant for the ride seems like it could be a lot of darkly comedic fun, but who knows.  […]

Visit Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’

Wes Anderson is a creature of habit. He has developed a uniqueness that has such a look, feel and sound to his films that they have become a genre themselves.  You know you’ve really made it when Saturday Night Live makes a mockery of you and most recently, SNL took Wes Anderson on and produced […]

‘Side Effects’ May Include Twists, Turns, And Some Deliberate Pacing (Movie Review)

The tricky thing about discussing Steven Soderbergh’s latest and reportedly last directorial feature, Side Effects, is that the film is most effective if the viewer goes in knowing nothing about it.  The marketing campaign (or at least the initial trailers) can be commended for being fairly ambiguous in presenting what is actually going on in […]

Hugo (Blu-ray Review)

So the Oscars came and went and Hugo won like 23 of them or so along with The Artist. I jest, but Hugo did get nominated for 11 Oscars including Best Picture and ended the night with 5 statuettes. That’s a great ratio. Hugo won 5 technical awards – it won for Best Cinematography, Art […]

Contagion (Blu-ray Review)

My son and I are both sick right now and it’s probably just a really bad cold, but as I watched the movie while coughing and sneezing, I realized that this probably isn’t the best time for me to watch a movie called Contagion.  I’m not usually a hypochondriac, but I’m open to suggestion when I’m […]

The Victorian boys are back in town.  Sherlock and Watson are back and this time they are wrapped up in a deadly game of shadows, as the threat of Professor Moriarty looms in the background.  The first film, from 2009, turned out to be a lot of fun, given the new take on the character […]

‘Contagion’ Spreads Procedural-Style Chills

With Contagion, acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh moves away from his more obscure arthouse fair and back into more mainstream film territory.  The result is a procedural-style thriller geared towards adults and it is plenty effective in having the surrounding audience be weary of anyone who coughs near them after having seen the film.  Using a […]
