A Coffee in Berlin (Blu-ray)

November 10th, 2014 No comments

Recommended The Movie: Despite trying constantly, poor Niko ( Generation War 's Tom Schilling) finds himself unable to procure a cup of coffee during the twenty-four hours or so that unfold in Jan Ole Gerster's debut feature, A Coffee In Berlin (retitled from the original: Oh Boy ). This failure turns out to be emblematic of the many misfortunes that befall him during this short period.

Jersey Boys (Blu-ray)

November 9th, 2014 No comments

Rent It THE FILM: Sorry, Clint, you are not the right director for Jersey Boys . The Tony Award-winning stage musical about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons is hilarious, toe-tapping fun, but something gets lost in translation in this film adaptation.

Stranded (Blu-ray)

September 4th, 2013 No comments

Skip It THE FILM: I can say with some confidence that this isn’t the worst science fiction film Roger Christian has ever directed. That would be Battlefield Earth , the John Travolta/Scientology in space disaster that won four Golden Raspberry Awards and lost Warner Brothers a ton of money

To Be or Not to Be: The Criterion Collection (Blu-ray)

September 4th, 2013 No comments

Highly Recommended THE MOVIE: Please Note: The stills used here are taken from promotional materials and other sources, not the Blu-ray edition under review. Comedy can be serious business, particularly when it is making light of dark subjects. When Mel Brooks made The Producers in 1967, two decades after World War II, he met resistance from people who didn’t think Hitler and his Nazis should be …

Flat Top (Blu-ray)

September 4th, 2013 No comments

Recommended Producer Walter Mirisch’s Midway (1976) cleverly presented a huge scale, all-star (Charlton Heston, Henry Fonda, Robert Mitchum, James Coburn, etc.) war movie on a deceptively modest budget, a fraction of the cost of movies like Tora! Tora! Tora! (1970) and A Bridge Too Far (1977). Where those movies recreated epic battles full-scale, with thousands of extras and real military …

Blancanieves (Blu-ray)

September 4th, 2013 No comments

Recommended THE FILM Please Note: The images used here are taken from the standard-definition DVD version of Blancanieves also included, not the Blu-ray edition under review. Pablo Berger’s Blancanieves is a pastiche of selectively recruited silent-film stylings that, like its inevitable comparison-point The Artist (a film that beat it to the punch even though Berger’s was already well into …
