Kidnapping Mr. Heineken (Blu-ray)

April 13th, 2015 No comments

Skip It THE FILM: A film about the 1983 kidnapping of Heineken beer's Freddy Heineken should have been an interesting crime thriller. Actually, there is a strong, fictional retelling of this event starring Rutger Hauer: The Heineken Kidnapping . Where that Dutch film had a rich backstory to flesh out its victim's character, Kidnapping Mr.

Breathless (1983) (Blu-ray)

April 13th, 2015 No comments

Recommended THE FILM: Click an image to view Blu-ray screenshot with 1080p resolution. This 1983 experiment in remaking Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless is certainly more immediately accessible than the French version, with its interminable takes and jarring jump cuts. That movie is a film-studies classic, of course, but Jim McBride's update is stylish, energetic and – dare I say – more entertaining …

Big Eyes (Blu-ray)

April 13th, 2015 No comments

Recommended Director: Tim Burton Starring: Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Krysten Ritter Year: 2014 Big Eyes was a big bust at the Oscars this past awards season. An early frontrunner in a lot of categories, it failed to even earn a nomination in any group; a disappointing end to a buzz-filled run

The Wicked Lady (Blu-ray)

April 11th, 2015 No comments

Recommended When I first saw the coming attractions trailer for The Wicked Lady (1983), starring Faye Dunaway, I was slightly confused. It looked like some sort of semi-sequel to Richard Lester's The Three Musketeers (1973), in which Dunaway played the scheming Milady de Winter. The Wicked Lady , despite some resemblance to Lester's film, was not a sequel

Skip It Director: Joe Lynch Starring: Salma Hayek, Akie Kotabe, Hiroyuki Watanabe Year: 2014 There's a classic & somewhat epic scene in Kill Bill that Everly immediately brings to mind. In it, Beatrix goes up against a gang of pop/ninja warriors called the Crazy 88

Singles (Blu-ray)

April 5th, 2015 No comments

Recommended The Movie: It's been said that the reason many musical acts suffer from a “sophomore slump” is because the artist took all of their best ideas of the past decade and distilled it into one breakout masterpiece. Given only a year or so to craft a follow-up, it's not surprising that most artists falter. One can only speculate that something like this happened for writer-director Cameron …

Unbroken (Blu-ray)

March 28th, 2015 No comments

Recommended THE FILM: Hollywood has long dramatized the lives of unremarkable men with ease, but often stumbles when retelling the story of someone truly exceptional. Filming the life of Louis “Louie” Zamperini is no easy task. The former United States Olympian survived a plane crash in World War II, only to be stranded on a raft for 47 days before he was sent to a Japanese internment camp …
