Both Bombshell and Uncut Gems are available either as a Blu-ray combo pack or on DVD.
Every now and then, we get a phenomenal performance from Adam Sandler. Punch-Drunk Love, Reign Over Me, Funny People, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), and Uncut Gems feature such performances. We get a career-best in the film. It helps that he’s able to get out of his comfort zone. He’s not in a film being written by the traditional writers that we’re so used to seeing.

Bombshell features a powerhouse ensemble of actors with some of the best performances to grace the big screen during the calendar year.
We all know the story. Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) sued Roger Ailes over sexual harassment and the dominoes started to fall. Sure, Roger tried to get all of the Fox News women to rally behind him but not everyone was on board. Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) had her own frustrating experiences with Ailes some ten years earlier. Then there’s Fox News associate producer Kayla Pospisil (Margot Robbie), who works for Carlson before moving over to The O’Reilly Factor. This is where she ends up meeting and befriending Jess Carr (Kate McKinnon). The dynamic between Kayla and Jess may be one of the film’s most interesting to say the least.
