The Mask of Zorro gets a Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD SteelBook in celebration of the film’s upcoming 25th anniversary in July. This is a placeholder for my formal review as the review copy of the new 4K UHD SteelBook is set to arrive today. My plan is to watch the film at my soonest convenience and replace this placeholder with the formal review. Much like Air Force One, this is another case in which…"The Mask of Zorro Gets Limited Edition 4K UHD Steelbook"

Drawing inspiration from a classic Sergio Leone film, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is the long-awaited sequel to the 2011 Shrek spin-off. Audiences had a chance to catch a sneak preview over Thanksgiving weekend. Similarly, Critics Choice Association members had the opportunity to do the same by way of digital screener. I never got around to watching the first film but I caught both in a double feature on Thanksgiving Eve. This one is…"Puss in Boots: The Last Wish Gets A Bit Dark"

Ruby Sparks, starring Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan, recently marked the tenth anniversary since the film’s theatrical release in 2012. “I started seeing her this morning. It’s like that movie Harvey. Except she’s not a giant rabbit.” – Calvin Weir-Fields I meant to get to the rewatch ahead of Monday’s 10th anniversary. With the Hall of Fame inductions and home entertainment releases on Tuesday, I simply ran out of time. In any event, the film…"Ruby Sparks Marks 10th Anniversary"
Spider-Man star Tom Holland delivers a solid performance as Uncharted makes the transition from video games to the big screen. There are two mid-credit scenes. This film isn’t the best action-adventure film but I can be very forgiving if I’m having fun. That’s the thing with action-adventures especially when it’s focusing on the adventure of itself. I’m not familiar with the PlayStation game but it never stopped me from having fun. The script isn’t above…"Uncharted: Tom Holland Does Indiana Jones"
Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard features solid chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson but the sequel offers more of the same. As action movies go, bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) are the last two people you would think of when it comes to a team-up. And yet, here we are watching them go at it…again. It’s funny though. Bryce wanted nothing more than to just go to Italy…"Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Offers More Of The Same"

Robert Downey Jr. leads the star-studded cast as the famous doctor who can understand and talk to animals. For all of…"Dolittle Is Now Available On Home Video"
Antonio Banderas delivers a stand-out performance as filmmaker Salvador Mallo in Pain and Glory as the film hits up the fall film festivals. A winner of Best Actor at Cannes, Pain and Glory hits both Telluride and Toronto on its way to a theatrical release in October. Pedro Almodóvar turns in a bold script here. Put it this way–hours after watching the film, I still struggled with what to say about it. On the one…"Toronto 2019: Pain and Glory"
Despite the best efforts from a star-studded cast, Life Itself is a tonally uneven mess in spite of all the hype going into the film. Given the positive reception of the This is Us on NBC, it’s surprising to believe that Dan Fogelman could follow it up with such a dud. This film is all over the place. Seriously. The first hour of the film is New York-centered because if you don’t live in New…"Life Itself: A Tonally Uneven Mess"
