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 …

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 …

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 …

Vice (Blu-ray)

March 30th, 2015 No comments

Skip It The Film: With advancements in technology and the perseverance of immersive entertainment (videogames, live-action role-playing), Michael Crichton's idea for Westworld — realistic environments populated with lifelike robots designed for rules-free chaos for those with the financial means — seems closer to feasible in our not-so-distant future than depicted in the '70s sci-fi classic …

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 …

Highly Recommended Reviewed by Glenn Erickson When I die and they lay me to rest / Gonna go to the place that's the best When I lay me down to die / Goin' up to the spirit in the sky. I can't believe that it's been 25 years since I watched a cohort back at the trailer boutique Film Impressions put together the great trailer for this Orion Pictures gem.
