Bio-Dome (Blu-ray)

April 14th, 2015 No comments

Rent It Aside from serving up the first big-screen appearance of Tenacious D and a few clever jabs at trendy young environmentalists, Jason Bloom's Bio-Dome (1996) doesn't have much lasting value. A handful of dumb laughs? Sure

Echoes (Blu-ray)

April 13th, 2015 No comments

Skip It The Film: Somewhere out in the ether of fiction yet to come, the ideal blend of the writer's process and surreal psychological horror waits to be discovered and materialized for the big screen. Sure, some films have successfully dabbled with the possibilities in metaphors and meta-context, but we've yet to see that great first-person supernatural thriller about a mentally-imbalanced …

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 …

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

Woman of Straw (Blu-ray)

April 3rd, 2015 No comments

Rent It The Movie: Thoughtfully crafted, lavishly produced yet lethargically weighed down with a familiar, Hitchcock-like plot, 1964's Woman of Straw represented an opportunity for Sean Connery to alert moviegoers that he could do more than James Bond. With solid work from co-stars Gina Lollobrigida and Ralph Richardson, Woman of Straw gets an overdue U.S

The Immigrant (Blu-ray)

April 1st, 2015 No comments

Highly Recommended The Movie: On the surface, the plot of The Immigrant sounds like one of those cheesy period melodramas that the senior-aged audience eats up: A pure immigrant woman comes to New York during the early 1920s and has to become a prostitute in order to save her beloved sick sister from deportation. Just by reading the logline, one can easily imagine scenes full of operatic tragedy …
