‘Joker’ Is The Clown Prince We Deserve (Movie Review)

Todd Phillips’ Joker aims to deliver much-needed weight to the comic book genre. It’s an alternate take on the origin of one of the most famous villains in the DC universe. There are no massive CG set pieces. Instead, you have what adds up to two hours of a glum and not at all fun time […]

Dirty Grandpa (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

There was something a bit subliminal that originally drew me into eventually reviewing Dirty Grandpa on Blu-ray last May (see here for that review).  Maybe it was partly my love of Bad Grandpa (see my review here) or my loss of my own grandfathers in real life, but it could have also been that ingenious swag Lionsgate sent over too (see […]

The Wizard of Lies (Blu-ray Review)

Inmate #61727054. Surely that’s a number that proves irrelevant to most of us. We live in a land where prisoners are more than abundant. However, some are more famous than others and few more so than inmate #61727054, better known as Bernard L. Madoff. Bernie Madoff lived up to his last name and ‘made off’ […]

Heat – Director’s Definitive Edition (Blu-ray Review)

In the Fall of 2016, I was able to attend a screening of Heat at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which boasted a brand new 4K restoration of the film, supervised by writer/director Michael Mann. Not that I needed a reminder of how great Mann’s Los Angeles crime saga is, but I […]

Goodfellas (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

4K UHD has been impressing me along the way this year.  One thing I really want to see more of on the format are classic films.  I know new films are going to look shiny, new and vibrant.  But, what I really want to see is how the vintage stuff is going to look and […]

Taxi Driver – 40th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray Review)

So it seems that every five years we will be getting a new edition of Taxi Driver on whatever home format is available. The classic Martin Scorsese neo-noir/psychological thriller has been given its share of acclaim so many times that delving into something new about the film almost feels unnecessary. And yet, this latest release […]

Dirty Grandpa – Unrated (Blu-ray Review)

There was something a bit subliminal that drew me into eventually reviewing Dirty Grandpa on Blu-ray.  Maybe it was partly my love of Bad Grandpa (see my review here) or my loss of my own grandfathers in real life, but it could have also been that ingenious swag Lionsgate sent over too (see below).  You pick.  However, I do miss […]

Joy (Blu-ray Review)

Credit goes to writer/director David O. Russell for building a film around Joy Mangano, the woman who invented the Miracle Mop. It may be a surprise for some going into the film Joy, given how vague the marketing was for the film, but that’s a tricky subject to tackle. This clearly proved to be true, […]

A Quick Look At The Best Casino Movies Now on Blu-ray

Before Ocean’s trilogy, 21 and the disappointing remake of The Gambler, the casino genre consisted of great films like The Cincinnati Kid and The Sting.  Movies released in the past decade haven’t all been bad, but IMDB’s list of top casino films demonstrate that there are very few that are just as stellar as the […]
