DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Season 5 on Blu-ray

The most bonkers show on television, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fifth Season, is now available for viewers to watch on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Stargirl were anomalies in the Arrowverse in that they got to finish their seasons.  Unlike the other series, the story arc presented here is complete. The Legends certainly got to have quite a bit of fun this season.  Even though things took a turn…

Full Metal Jacket Arrives on 4K Ultra HD

Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 Vietnam War classic, Full Metal Jacket, arrives on 4K Ultra HD over three decades after its theatrical release. While a recluse at home, Kubrick is also one of the all-time greats behind the camera.  It shows through in films such as Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Spartacus to name a few.  Full Metal Jacket is certainly no exception.  Kubrick works the camera as only he can. The 4K remaster is…

Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story

Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story takes us behind the scenes to give stunt performers their due in this action documentary. If you don’t pay attention to the credits, there’s a good chance you don’t know their names.  It’s more than a good chance, honestly, because let’s face it–you’re already rushing out of the theater when the credits roll.  Unless it’s Marvel or DC so that you can see the post-credits scene.  But these are the…

Secret Society of Second-Born Royals Is Fun

Disney looks to launch a new X-Men-esque franchise set in the world of royalty by way of Secret Society of Second-Born Royals. What does it mean to be a second-born royal?  For one, it means never acquiring the throne barring a death of an older sibling.  Will this mean acting out in life?  Sam (Peyton Elizabeth Lee), a princess of Illyria, isn’t exactly the perfect princess.  She’s a rebel and against the monarchy so to…

Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the 72nd Emmy Awards are taking place during the Covid-19 pandemic with multiple cameras cutting to the winners. Solzy at the Movies will be presenting live updates of the 72nd Emmy Awards this evening.

New York FF 2020: MLK/FBI

MLK/FBI becomes the first feature-length documentary to really examine the FBI’s surveillance and harassment of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Freedom of Information Act can be a wonderful tool when used.  In this instance, we’re allowed to see declassified files that show how longtime FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover targeted the likes of Dr. King.  These files were declassified in 2017-2018 so it’s a quick production on that part.  That Hoover targeted King certainly…

Toronto 2020: A Good Man Is Another Transface Film

A Good Man is yet another example of transface casting gunning for awards with cisgender actress Noémie Merlant in a transgender role. It would be one thing for a cisgender filmmaker to bring a trans story to the screen if they actually had a transgender actor in the trans role.  However, this certainly isn’t the case here.  Not by a long shot.  What’s even more insulting is that the film’s co-writer, Christian Sonderegger, has a…
