Hocus Pocus (Blu-ray)

September 12th, 2012 No comments

Recommended THE FILM: I must confess that Hocus Pocus was one of my favorite Disney movies as a child. It didn’t pander to kids, and the danger felt real

Mad Monster Party Combo Pack BD + DVD (Blu-ray)

September 4th, 2012 No comments

Recommended Reviewed by Glenn Erickson Possibly timed to accompany Universal’s classic monster romp Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein to Blu-ray, Mad Monster Party? (the question mark is indeed used on the film title) is a lightly amusing kiddie picture with interest for fans of ’60s cult culture

Starship Troopers: Invasion (Blu-ray)

September 4th, 2012 No comments

Skip It You sort of have to hand it to Sony: against all odds, they managed to turn Starship Troopers — which only earned $120m worldwide against a $100m budget — into a surprisingly valuable franchise. First, there was the seemingly popular animated TV series “Roughnecks,” followed by two live-action direct-to-video sequels. Last year, Sony announced a remake was also in the works, but that …

The Navigator: Ultimate Edition (Blu-ray)

September 2nd, 2012 No comments

Highly Recommended THE FILM: Please Note: The images used here are taken from stills and other promotional materials, not the Blu-ray edition under review. It has an abandoned battleship, not a locomotive, as its perpetually in-motion, out-of-control set, but Buster Keaton’s 1924 feature The Navigator — the last occasion on which he shared directing credit before going full auteur for the …

Quadrophenia: The Criterion Collection (Blu-ray)

September 2nd, 2012 No comments

Highly Recommended My “memories” of Quadrophenia are by association only. I had never seen the movie until this Blu-ray release from The Criterion Collection, but I had been aware of it – perhaps excessively so – thanks to the neo-Mods of my teenage years. This was in the early 1990s, and although it would be easy enough to label these neo-Mods as misguided poseurs (which they most certainly …

Pocahontas: 2 Movie Collection (Blu-ray)

August 30th, 2012 No comments

Highly Recommended Pocahontas Blu-ray Review Disney’s Pocahontas may not be the mostfaithful telling of the story imaginable (for some that follow history”to thebooks” and expect filmmakers to entirely follow suite that might evenseem a gigantic understatement) but it is acreative, visionary, and beautiful film about the discovery of the “newworld”in America by Spanish explorers and the …

Lonesome: The Criterion Collection (Blu-ray)

August 29th, 2012 No comments

DVD Talk Collector Series THE FILM: Please Note: The images used here are taken from promotional materials, not the Blu-ray edition under review. “Gee, it’s funny how lonesome a fella can be, especially with a million people around him.” The new Criterion Blu-ray edition of Paul Fejos’s splendiferous 1928 color/B&W, silent/talkie Hollywood hybrid Lonesome is the kind of thing that makes you …

Quick (Blu-ray)

August 29th, 2012 No comments

Rent It The tagline on the back of the Quick Blu-Ray proclaims: “It’s Speed on a motorcycle!” Although that easy-to-digest line certainly paints a picture for the prospective viewer, I don’t think it’s the right picture. Speed is certainly a silly movie, but it plays its central conflict straight: Will Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, and a busful of character actors get blown to bits? Quick spins …
