The House With a Clock in Its Walls hits Blu-ray

Starring Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, and Owen Vaccaro, Eli Roth’s The House With a Clock in Its Walls is now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. I missed this film when it played in theaters mostly because of the Jewish holiday marathon combined with film festival coverage.  While Nathan Barr’s score compliments the film, that’s one of the few positives I have to say about it.  This is the first film to use…

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle lack bare necessities

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle feels so redundant coming just over two and a half years following the release of Disney’s The Jungle Book. Let’s go through this one more time.  A young child who grows up to be a man-cub, Mowgli (Rohan Chand), is orphaned in the jungle when Shere Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch) attacks his family.  A panther, Bagheera (Christian Bale), rescues him and leaves him with the wolves where Nisha (Naomie Harris) adopts…

Chicago Film Fest 2018: This Changes Everything

Addressing the gender disparity that troubles Hollywood, This Changes Everything is one of the most important documentaries of the year. I can’t exactly point to when all the focus started turning to women directors not getting the same opportunities as men.  That being said, This Changes Everything is equally important to the Amy Adrion-directed Half the Picture.  This two films go hand in hand with a similar focus on women directors. “The door has to…

Ocean’s 8 doesn’t change Status Quo

Ocean’s 8 is just entertaining enough to pull off a heist but the film doesn’t really up the stakes in the franchise. Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) has been planning the Met Gala heist for five years, eight months, and twelve days.  Or so she says.  Pulling it off won’t be easy.  It’s going to require the aid of her partner, Lou Miller (Cate Blanchett).  By Debbie’s math, it’s going to take seven people to pull…

Thor: Ragnarok is Marvel’s Most Fun Film

Thor: Ragnarok is Marvel’s most fun film and raises the bar as Thor teams up with Hulk to save Asgard. Taika Waititi moves into the director’s chair, following both Kenneth Branagh and Alan Taylor, and gives us the best film in the series and maybe even all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, helped by a screenplay written by Eric Pearson and Craig Kyle & Christopher L. Yost.  The script incorporates some of the Planet Hulk…
