Die Another Day was in the unfortunate situation of opening a few months after a spy film that changed the genre, The Bourne Identity. The film marked its 20th anniversary last month. I was a bit swamped at the time with the final weeks of watching awards screeners before turning in my ballot. Because of timing, I’ve opted to review it along with the rest of the Pierece Brosnan movies. It really doesn’t matter how…"Die Another Day Is Among The Worst Bond Films"
The late Sidney Poitier gets a revealing documentary in a two-hour film directed by Reginald Hudlin and produced by Oprah Winfrey. Unfortunately I missed getting the opportunity to see Sidney during its Toronto premiere screenings. I had one screening on my schedule but one must listen to their body when it needs sleep. In any event, I finally had the chance to sit down and watch ahead of its release on Apple TV+. Leave it…"Sidney: A Revealing Documentary of Sidney Poitier"
Reginald Hudlin’s Boomerang, featuring a star-studded cast, celebrates its 30th anniversary by arriving on Blu-ray for the first time. Paramount has been releasing a number of Eddie Murphy films over the past few years onto Blu-ray or 4K UHD. A few came by way through Paramount Presents line but this isn’t one of them. Some of the more popular films ended up getting 4K releases after the recent Blu-rays so we’ll just have to see…"Boomerang Gets 30th Anniversary Blu-ray"
Moonfall pulls no punches in the epic thrill ride as the world depends on two astronauts and a conspiracy theorist to save the day. I love a good disaster thriller. Sure, they might not be nominated or win any Oscars but that doesn’t stop them being being fun. In January alone, I rewatched both The Day After Tomorrow and 2012. I rewatch Independence Day every few years although my July 4th choices tend to be…"Moonfall Pulls No Punches In Epic Thrill Ride"
X-Men: Days of Future Past is certainly one of the best films in the entire X-Men series and unites both the new and old casts with stakes on the line. After being set up in The Wolverine, the action starts in 2023. By this point, the elder Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Erik Lehnsherr (Ian McKellan) have gotten over their differences. The two of them are working together in order to save both mutants and…"X-Men: Days of Future Past – Road to Dark Phoenix"
X-Men: The Last Stand is practically non-existent and we owe our thanks to the ret-con provided in X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s a shame that Scott Summers/Cyclops (James Marsden) gets the shaft. Is this because Marsden decided to join Superman Returns? Maybe. Nobody could blame him for doing so with Bryan Singer helming the other film. With Cyclops gone, both Storm (Halle Berry) and Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) take on an increase in leadership. Wolverine…"X-Men: The Last Stand- The Road to Dark Phoenix"
X2: X-Men United is the comic book adaptation that set the benchmark for all comic book films until The Dark Knight came calling five years later. After Alkali Lake was teased at the end of X-Men, the setting plays a larger focus in the sequel. It’s the base for Col. William Stryker (Brian Cox), who happens to take on a more villainous role than Magneto (Ian McKelllan). Stryker is no fan of mutants and lets…"X2: X-Men United – The Road to Dark Phoenix"
X-Men is one of the earliest Marvel Comics adaptations to take to the big screen in the newer age of cinema in recent years. After being on his own with no memory of who he was, Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) finds himself thrown into the middle of a war between Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Erik Lehnsherr (Ian McKellan). Charles, known as the Professor, believes that mutants can co-exist with humanity. Lehnsherr, known as Magneto, doesn’t…"X-Men – The Road to Dark Phoenix"
