Jean Arthur – TCM Summer Under The Stars

Jean Arthur is the second classic movie star to take the spotlight for 24 hours during the TCM Summer Under The Stars series. I’ll have formal reviews running for a few films on Tuesday. However, one that I strongly recommend watching is Frank Capra’s Oscar-winning classic, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Hey, when you’re up against films like Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz, you have to take those Oscars where you…

Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen on Home Video

Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen is now available for audiences to watch at home on Blu-ray, DVD, and via digital retailers. What follows is my original review from earlier this year: Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen is a documentary that comes one year after Fiddler on the Roof marked its 50th anniversary. Jeff Goldblum narrates the movie but his contribution is minimal compared to how many cast and crew provide commentary. Filmmaker Daniel…

The Lost City on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD

Fans now have the opportunity to bring adventure comedy The Lost City home and watch the film on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. What follows is a modification of my original review from April: After being taken hostage, a romance-adventure novelist and her cover model team up to find The Lost City in this action-adventure comedy. Big-budget action-adventure romantic comedies feel like a thing of the past. I’m so glad that Paramount didn’t unload…

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on Home Video

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now available for audiences to bring home and watch on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. What follows is my review from May with some modifications: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sees Doctor Strange journey further into the Multiverse in order to stop an adversary. As is the custom for Marvel films, there is a mid-credit scene and a post-credit scene. The mid-credit scene is…

Dual Arrives on Blu-ray, DVD

Karen Gillan absolutely shines in Dual and the film is now available for fans to bring home and watch on either Blu-ray or DVD. Here’s my review of the film from earlier this year: It’s double the Karen Gillan when a terminally ill woman recovers and has to fight for her life in the new Riley Stearns film, Dual. When Sarah (Karen Gillan) learns that she has a terminal illness, she decides to clone herself…

Men In Black Gets 25th Anniversary 4K SteelBook

Following a pair of Fathom Events screenings, Men In Black is celebrating its 25th anniversary by getting a 4K Ultra HD SteelBook. What follows is my original film review from 2019 with some modifications: Men in Black is the rare breed of a sci-fi blockbuster that film audiences don’t really get the opportunity to see anymore in theaters. The gist of Men in Black is that there is a secret government agency protecting us from…

Salt and Pepper, One More Time on Blu-ray

Salt and Pepper and One More Time make their arrival on Blu-ray in a double feature packaged by Kino Lorber Studio Classics. The two films are billed as “hilarious action comedies” but you’re mileage may vary. Personally, I forced myself to get through Salt and Pepper. It’s very telling when a film directed by Richard Donner also struggles to keep my attention. The fact that it stars two Rat Pack stars and falls short on…

Amsterdam Has A David O. Russell Problem – Oscars Watch

On paper, Amsterdam has the right pedigree to be a serious Oscar contender but the film has a David O. Russell problem. Amsterdam is described as “a fascinating and richly intricate tale that brilliantly weaves historical fact with fiction for a timely, cinematic experience.” It is a “crime epic about three close friends who find themselves at the center of one of the most shocking secret plots in American history.” 20th Century Studios released both…

Downton Abbey: A New Era Arrives on Home Video

Downton Abbey: A New Era is currently available for audiences to bring home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. In addition to owning the film, it is currently streaming on Peacock. Downton Abbey: A New Era takes audiences to a new era as the adventure continues following six seasons and a movie. It would not be a Downton Abbey film without adding some twists and turns along the way. However, I will not…
