Out of Sight Arrives on 4K UHD

Out of Sight, the first collaboration between filmmaker Steven Soderbergh and actor George Clooney, arrives on 4K Ultra HD. The film makes its arrival on 4K UHD two days after turning 24 years old. 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,…

What If…?: Animated Series Depicts A Different MCU

Marvel Studios’ What If…? takes what we know as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) but delivers the animated action with a twist. The series draws on the Marvel Comics anthology series of the same name. Like the comic series, this is also an anthology series. We revisit key moments of the MCU through the eyes of Marvel newcomer Jeffrey Wright, who voices The Watcher, and see what would happen had characters done A instead of…

Space Jam: A New Legacy Is More Of The Same

Space Jam: A New Legacy replaces Michael Jordan with LeBron James while also taking advantage of today’s advances in technology. The only other difference between this and the original film is a father vs. son storyline. But aside from that, there’s really not much of a difference. Well, I mean Warner Bros. pulls a Ralph Breaks The Internet but taking advantage of all of the studio’s IP in the Server-verse. Some fun parts include Bugs…

No Sudden Move: Lens Choices Don’t Work Well

Steven Soderbergh is back with the Ed Solomon-scripted No Sudden Move but the lens choices are distracting to watch on a flat screen. On paper, this sounds like a fine film. In terms of execution, there are some rather distracting decisions being made. The lens choices just didn’t work with regards to home viewing. When they moved the dolly in order to follow the movement, it made for some distractions when the picture moved. It…

Avengers: Endgame – The Endgame is Here

Avengers: Infinity War – The Road to Endgame

The stakes have never been higher with the release of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War. Ten years in the making, it all culminates in this epic crossover of a film.  All of our favorite heroes in one film save for Hawkeye and Ant-Man–neither of which were one the poster.  With this large of a cast, it a was a question going into the film of how would they be able to handle the appearances of…

Captain America: Civil War – The Road to Endgame

With Captain America: Civil War, the Marvel mini-series that had huge ramifications across the universe finally comes to the big screen.  However, it’s not quite the same as the original comic book series given that Fox owns the rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four. That said, it’s still a really awesome film. Just as in the comics, Steve Rogers’ Captain America (Chris Evans) is pitted against Tony Stark’s Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).  Cap is…

Avengers: Age of Ultron – The Road to Endgame

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the penultimate film of Marvel’s Phase 2 and paves the landscape for phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This film is every bit as epic of an installment as the initial team-up in 2012.  Since the collapse of S.H.I.E.LD., the Avengers have been busy at work in defeating H.Y.D.R.A.  This time, they’re taking out Baron Wolfgang von Strucker’s (Thomas Kretschmann) base in Sokovia.  It just so happens that this…
