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 …

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

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 …

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

Hollywood tales: When reel life and real life are at odds

September 16th, 2013 No comments

With this in mind, I offer a list of 12 things I learned from movies that aren’t true at all. There’s a moment in “Up in the Air” when George Clooney comes home and pours himself a big fat drink that, for a moment, made me think I wasn’t drinking enough.

DVD spotlight: The Dardenne brothers

September 15th, 2013 No comments

Compared to his father, Roger (Olivier Gourmet), who exploits illegal immigrants for a living and is raising his son to carry on the family business, Igor (Jeremie Renier) is at least recognizably human.
