The Price of Freedom examines the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) past and how they politicized the second amendment. “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun,” NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, December 2012. Following the Sandy Hook tragedy, the NRA was silent for several days. And then, they finally held a press conference and well, it didn’t get any better for them. LaPierre…"The Price of Freedom Explores the NRA and Guns"
Space Jam, a live-action/animation hybrid, makes its arrival on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray to celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary. Prior to Space Jam, most Looney Tunes features were just compilation pieces merged into one. This certainly isn’t the case here as the film features a complete story arc. It’s not so easy to blend live-action with animation but they manage to get the job done. We have live actors existing in the toon world and…"Space Jam Arrives On 4K UHD For 25th Anniversary"
48 Hrs., the Walter Hill film starring Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy, became the 19th title to join the Paramount Presents line on Blu-ray. This film kickstarted the buddy cop genre and cinema would never be the same. Even though a 1974 film predates it, history looks to the 1982 comedy as the first. But it’s fair to say that without 48 Hrs., there is no Beverly Hills Cop, Bad Boys, Rush Hour, and even…"48 Hrs. Joins Paramount Presents Blu-ray Line"
The Time of Their Lives starts out during the American Revolution with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello playing romantic rivals. While the film may start out during the Revolutionary War, it soon jumps 166 years years ahead in time. This makes way for some pleasant laughs with being scared by electricity. Six years into the war, master tinker Horatio Prim (Lou Costello) seeks to free Nora O’Leary (Ann Gillis) out of indentured servitude to Tom…"The Time of Their Lives: Bud Abbott and Lou Costello"
John Paul Jones, the biopic starring Robert Stack, may mean well but this film falls just a bit short in terms of mere entertainment value. John Paul Jones (Robert Stack) was the first major commander in the Continental Navy. He’s considered the Father of the American Navy along with both John Barry and John Adams. Unfortunately, his life came to a premature end at the age of 45 in 1792. There isn’t an argument that…"John Paul Jones: Naval Hero Deserves Better Biopic"
The Tomorrow War might not star Will Smith but this sci-fi action film is in the same vein as previous Independence Day releases. As oddly as it sounds, The Tomorrow War is just the type of escapist entertainment we need coming out on the other side of the pandemic. Time travelers travel back in time from 2051 to disrupt a World Cup soccer game and give Earth an urgent message: a deadly alien species is…"The Tomorrow War Would Make Will Smith Proud"
The Neutral Ground uses New Orleans as a backdrop by exploring the Civil War and the debate to remove Confederate monuments. One could make the argument that New Orleans was a trendsetter in debating to remove statues. Or at least that’s how it might feel if you haven’t been actively paying attention to the discussion. For some, it only becomes of interest when it’s on the front page daily. Other cities would do so quietly…"The Neutral Ground Adds To the Statue Conversation"
Steven Soderbergh is back with the Ed Solomon-scripted No Sudden Move but the lens choices are distracting to watch on a flat screen. On paper, this sounds like a fine film. In terms of execution, there are some rather distracting decisions being made. The lens choices just didn’t work with regards to home viewing. When they moved the dolly in order to follow the movement, it made for some distractions when the picture moved. It…"No Sudden Move: Lens Choices Don’t Work Well"
Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway deliver commanding performances in The Devil Wears Prada, which marks its 15th anniversary. This is a film that really shows us what it means to be a personal assistant. For better or worse, assistants can go through a personal hell just to still be employed at the end of the day. Lauren Weisberger draws on her personal experiences working for Anna Wintour at Vogue in the semi-biographical novel of which…"The Devil Wears Prada Marks 15th Anniversary"
