Without Love: Tracy-Hepburn Classic Hits Blu-ray

Without Love isn’t as famous as other pairings but it is the third team-up between screen legends Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. George Stevens’s romantic comedy, Woman of the Year, marked their first team up in 1942.  However, this wasn’t meant to be their first team-up.  No, the honor was going to belong to The Philadelphia Story but things didn’t work out in the end.  One thing is for sure though: Without Love does not…

Locked Down: A Feature Film For Covid Era

Locked Down has the tough responsibility of being one of the first major studio films to take place during the Covid-19 pandemic. Filmmaker Doug Liman may be ambitious enough to want to film in outer space with Tom Cruise.  But before doing that, he went about filming this project during the pandemic.  Many of us have been living this horror movie since last March–some in worse circumstances than others.  One thing this film does get…

Outside the Wire: A Future Aided By Robots

Outside the Wire imagines a world in 2036 where human troops on both sides are assisted by robotic soldiers and drone pilots. No, the film is not set in Baltimore.  It is clear to me that nobody is bothering to heed the warnings of the great machine uprising given to us in The Terminator films.  Next thing you know, some genius will attempt to open a theme park with dinosaurs.  Actually, that’s not a bad…

Critics Choice Super Awards: My Ballot

The Critics Choice Super Awards aired on Sunday night and as a voting member, I would like to present how I voted for the movie awards. Voting took place over December 4-5, 2020.  Some categories were not easy when some of your favorite films were so close together.  In other categories, the decision was a no-brainer.  All in all, seven of my choices were the winners in their category. Like so many others, I have…

Gina Carano Must Be Fired From The Mandalorian

The Walt Disney Company has an obligation to fire actress Gina Carano from The Mandalorian following her Twitter activity. I don’t take this lightly.  This is not only something I say as a Star Wars fan but I also feel an obligation to speak out as a Disney shareholder.  If Cara Dune is part of The Mandalorian‘s third season, it will make for some rather uncomfortable viewing.  Should Dune be brought back for season 3,…

The Terminal: Spielberg Goes Back To Comedy

The Terminal may not be the top of the line for filmmaker Steven Spielberg but the film still makes for compelling material when viewing. It’s fascinating to watch The Terminal in 2020, over fifteen years following its theatrical release.  So much has and hasn’t changed when it comes to immigration.  Because Krakozhia breaks out into civil war during his flight, the United States no longer recognizes the country.  Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks) basically becomes a…

Stars Fell on Alabama Plays Within Rom-Com Rules

Stars Fell on Alabama, a film with a Hollywood twist, is the first romantic comedy film to be released in theaters or VOD in 2021. Before I dive into the film, you should know that there are short clips during the credits.  Aside from this, there is a post-credits tag.  The other thing to know about the film is it is set during 2019.  This way, you don’t have to scream about so many people…

Gangs of New York Is A Flawed Epic

Gangs of New York may have a lot to enjoy about the film but at the end of the day, it is a flawed epic and well short of being a masterpiece. In many ways, this is the history of New York City according to Martin Scorsese.  The script itself is based on Herbert Asbury’s The Gangs of New York.  However, it gets an original screenplay nomination because they drift so far from the book’s…
