Given the never-ending Ezra Miller legal issues, Warner Bros. needs to cancel The Flash, recast, or quietly release the film on HBO Max. If I’m David Zaslav, I would just take the loss and quietly drop the film on HBO Max. Ezra Miller is now in cancelled territory. My interest in seeing The Flash isn’t there, not unless the film gets recast. Is Grant Gustin available? Anyone else? Is it even possible to recast the…"Ezra Miller: Warner Bros. Needs To Cancel The Flash"

Minions: The Rise of Gru continues to take audiences on the path towards the first Despicable Me with a lot of fun slapstick moments. However, I would be remis to point out a problem with the film’s soundtrack. There’s a point in the film where we hear the five-tone motif from John Williams’s score for Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The problem with this is that this film is set 1976 and Close Encounters…"Minions: The Rise of Gru Hits The 70s"

Ted, starring Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, and Seth MacFarlane, marks the 10th anniversary since its theatrical release in 2012. I’m going to be downright honest. I do mot know what 2012 me ever saw in Ted. It was, apparently, enough to purchase the film on Blu-ray in late November 2013. I wasn’t even writing for then-Flicksided at the time so I can’t even look at a previous review to see what I wrote. I’ll be…"Ted: Raunchy Comedy Marks 10th Anniversary"

If Kino Lorber had held off for another year, they could have released a 25th anniversary 4K! I’m not complaining as it also gives me an opportunity to rewatch a Steven Soderbergh classic. Plus, it’s got Kentucky native George Clooney. Together,…"Out of Sight Arrives on 4K UHD"
