It’s a few months after the 30th anniversary but Warner Brothers has upgraded The Fugitive to 4K Ultra HD for the occasion. I reviewed the film back in 2018 for its 25th anniversary but I can assure you that the critically acclaimed film still holds up today. The three main players are Dr. Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford), U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones), and one-armed man Fredrick Sykes (Andreas Katsulas). Aside from some minor…"The Fugitive Gets 4K Ultra HD For 30th Anniversary"
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny–the fifth and final installment of the iconic franchise–is now available through digital retailers. A physical media release is still forthcoming. My original review from this past June: Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is an action-packed farewell to the iconic Harrison Ford character and an absolute blast of a time. There’s a universe where this isn’t just the farewell to Indiana Jones as a character but the…"Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny Arrives on Digital"
The Mosquito Coast features what could very well be the most unlikable character ever portrayed on screen by Harrison Ford. When I saw that Hoopla had a new-to-me Harrison Ford film in their catalog, I decided to give it a watch. After all, the film reteams Ford and filmmaker Peter Weir one year after they teamed up for Witness. This film is not even in the same league as Witness and it’s the main reason why…"The Mosquito Coast: Harrison Ford In An Unlikable Role"
David Newman is conducting Star Wars: The Force Awakens in Concert over the course of three nights at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. This was my first time getting to see a film at the CSO, let alone watch the CSO in action. It was a fun experience–anytime I get to watch a Star Wars film on the big screen is always a good time. The last time I saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens on…"Star Wars: The Force Awakens in Concert – CSO at the Movies"
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is an action-packed farewell to the iconic Harrison Ford character and an absolute blast of a time. There’s a universe where this isn’t just the farewell to Indiana Jones as a character but the final John Williams film score. However, Williams walked back his retirement comments during a conversation with Steven Spielberg in January. We’re all the better for it because John Williams is a master at his…"Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is An Action-Packed Farewell"
Star Wars Celebration in London is taking the pop culture world by storm with a slew of casting announcements and trailer reveals. Friday saw the studio panel taking place, which made the most news on the feature film friend. There were some panels dedicated to the TV side but Rey Skywalker is officially returning in live-action. This isn’t all as Dave Filoni will be tying up all of The Mandalorian/Ahsoka threads with a feature-film. How…"Star Wars Celebration News Includes Three Films, Daisy Ridley Returning"
The Conversation is a provocative thriller from Francis Ford Coppola that reminds us of the fine line between technology and privacy. Technology frequently comes with a cost and this film is no exception. Rather than focus on the eavesdropping victims, Coppola’s focus is on the eavesdropper himself. One can make an argument about the similarities with both political thriller Enemy of the State and comic book masterpiece The Dark Knight with how it treats privacy…"The Conversation: Francis Ford Coppola’s Masterpiece"
Air Force One marked its 25th anniversary and Sony is celebrating by releasing the film on a 4K Ultra HD Limited Edition SteelBook. Technically speaking, this release is not a special anniversary edition. That being said, there is a key difference from the previous 4K UHD release in 2020. This edition features Dolby Vision whereas the previous version does not. Aside from minor changes, what follows below is my original review from 2020: Air Force…"Air Force One Gets 4K UHD Limited Edition SteelBook"
As Shrinking heads down the backstretch of its first season. legendary actor Harrison Ford is turning in some of the best work in his career. When the review embargo lifted in January, there were six episodes available for review at the time on the Apple TV+ press site. Since that time, all ten episodes have been made available for press to view. I can say with 100% certainty after finishing the season that Harrison Ford…"Harrison Ford is Emmy-Worthy in Shrinking"
Shrinking follows a grieving therapist as he resorts to whatever habits he can while not hesitating to break the rules with his clients. I know what you’re thinking–how is this series any different from the Tim Baltz-starring Shrink? Can both series co-exist in a world where therapists break the rules? It’s quite possible although I would love to see more of Baltz in action after the Seeso series got the short end of the stick.…"Shrinking: A Comedy About Therapy, Grief"
