The Oscar-winning All Quiet on the Western Front is now available for audiences to bring home in a Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD Media Book. It’s not surprising that the film did so well during awards season, including the first-ever Best Picture nomination for a German film. When the first adaptation–directed by Lewis Mileston–was released by Universal Pictures in 1930, it won Best Picture at the Oscars. Of course, it also premiered to protests in…"All Quiet on the Western Front Arrives On 4K Ultra HD"
The Kingsman prequel, The King’s Man, is now available for audiences to take home and watch on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD. The King’s Man takes it all back to World War I to depict the beginning of how Kingsman got its start as a secret service organization. Harry Hart once delivered a monologue explaining the foundation of Kingsman to Eggsy during the first Kingsman film. It’s not quite the Star Wars opening crawl come…"The King’s Man Arrives On Home Video"
The King’s Man takes it all back to World War I to depict the beginning of how Kingsman got its start as a secret service organization. Harry Hart once delivered a monologue explaining the foundation of Kingsman to Eggsy during the first Kingsman film. It’s not quite the Star Wars opening crawl come to life but this film has its own epic feel to it. It’s funny sitting here and thinking about how both this…"The King’s Man: World War I Paves The Way"
Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino’s revisionist war film with one of the best cinematic endings, makes its arrival today on 4K Ultra HD. The following is from my review as written in 2019 for the 10th anniversary. However, there are some revisions to account for the last two years. Unfortunately, there is no change in the Jew-hatred. A shame. All people need to do is just not hate Jews. Is this too much to ask? But…"Inglourious Basterds Arrives on 4K Ultra HD"
The Zookeeper’s Wife tells the story of the heroic efforts by Dr. Jan Żabiński and Antonina Żabińska to save Warsaw’s Jews from the Nazis. When we first meet Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh) and Antonina Żabińska (Jessica Chastain) in 1939, the two are caretakers for the Warsaw Zoo. They go through their daily routine until the Nazis begin their occupation of Poland. It’s not long thereafter when the Reich’s chief zoologist Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl)…"The Zookeeper’s Wife: How A Zoo Saved Jews"
The first or possibly only season of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has now come to an end while fans await the arrival of Loki. One mystery from last week gets a quick resolution. It turns out that the the box that Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) got is none other than Sam Wilson’s (Anthony Mackie) new Captain America suit. I’m glad to see this finally happen but I certainly thought it would take place…"The Falcon and The Winter Soldier: The Finale"
The newest episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier showed what we all knew coming in: John Walker (Wyatt Russell) is the real villain of the series. You don’t have to like John Walker. I know for a fact that I don’t. He’ll never be my Captain America. So far, nothing he’s done during the first four episodes is worthy of taking a mantle that doesn’t belong to him. That we even saw this…"John Walker: New Captain America Is A Villain"
Marvel fans will be happy as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier finally makes it’s arrival on Disney+ after a very lengthy delay. It’s been more than a few months since the last time we saw Sam Wilson/The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes (Sebastian Stan). The last time we saw them was when old Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) suddenly appeared on a bench late in Avengers: Endgame. In case you forgot, Steve…"The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Finally Arrives"
Quentin Tarantino’s revisionist war film, Inglourious Basterds, has one of the best cinematic endings of all time while the film holds up ten years later. What I am sorry to report is that this is a film that could also take place in 2019. It’s not so much because of conditions in Europe but how things presently are in the United States. Much of today’s anti-Semitism is being enabled by the man presently holding office…"Inglourious Basterds: Revisionist Film Marks 10 Years"
Maria Altmann’s remarkable true story of recovering stolen artwork from the Austrian government manages to get justice in Woman in Gold. I found myself watching the film again during Tisha B’Av during a double header with Stanley Kramer’s Judgment in Nuremberg. Despite the fact that the Weinstein name is attached, please do not let that stop you from watching this film. Maria Altmann’s (Helen Mirren) story is but one of many Holocaust stories out there. …"Woman in Gold: A Story of Justice and Redemption"
