The global hit Barbie is Kenough for audiences to finally bring home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD in addition to Digital. I saw the film twice on the big screen. Most recently, I took advantage of the special re-release for IMAX. Unfortunately, the special gag footage was exclusive for the IMAX release. It’s also a shame that they chose against releasing it with the physical media release. It would certainly be a fun…"Barbie is Kenough to Bring Home on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD"
Greta Gerwig continues a brilliant run behind the camera with Barbie while co-writing a hysterical script with Noah Baumbach. Gerwig and Baumbach’s script is funnier than it has any right to be. It’s also full of double entendres but it does have a PG-13 rating for suggestive references and brief language. One would assume that many parents would want to bring their young daughters under 10 but that might not be the best idea. After…"Barbie: Greta Gerwig Continues A Brilliant Run Behind The Camera"

Bombshell features a powerhouse ensemble of actors with some of the best performances to grace the big screen during the calendar year. We all know the story. Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) sued Roger Ailes over sexual harassment and the dominoes started to fall. Sure, Roger tried to get all of the Fox News women to rally behind him but not everyone was on board. Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) had her own frustrating experiences with Ailes…"Bombshell Features A Powerhouse Ensemble"
Danny Boyle’s Yesterday may be inspired by a world without The Beatles but unfortunately, the film loses its focus somewhere on the long and winding road. Imagine a world where The Beatles never came into existence. This is what screenwriter Richard Curtis asks in a crowd-pleasing screenplay. Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) was about to give up his dreams as a singer-songwriter. Best friend Ellie (Lily James) shows support for Jack but it isn’t enough. For…"Chicago Critics 2019: Yesterday"
Family may have its moments but there’s no reason why this star-studded comedy doesn’t work any better than it absolutely should. Kate Stone (Taylor Schilling) is the career-oriented woman working for a hedge fund in New Jersey. She’s firm in her beliefs. One could say that this is how she climbed the corporate ladder to be senior vice president. Kate goes as far as to tell new employee Erin (Jessie Ennis) to not make friends…"Family has its moments, falls a bit flat"
Susanna Fogel’s female-led spy action comedy, The Spy Who Dumped Me, is available to take home on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), DVD, and On Demand. The film has been available to rent and purchase on Digital since October 16, 2018. Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon star in this hysterical comedy that takes us across the pond. While my review speaks for itself, I hope…"The Spy Who Dumped Me is On Blu-ray/DVD"
The genre-bending action comedy, The Spy Who Dumped Me, allows for Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon to take it to the next level. The film’s cold open sets the tone, introducing us to Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon) on the former’s birthday in Los Angeles while Drew (Justin Theroux) fights for his life in Vilnius. In addition to the cuts between the two, there’s the requisite flashbacks introducing us to their meet-cute. This also serves…"The Spy Who Dumped Me is Kick-Ass Fun"
Starring four of the funniest women on earth, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call honors the spirit of the 1984 classic film. While it would have been nice to have seen the likes of Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, and Winston Zeddemore pass the baton to a new generation, Harold Ramis’ death in 2014 would forever change the face of the franchise. Never mind just how hard it is getting Bill Murray to sign on board for anything. With that out…"Ghostbusters: Answer the Call"
