Nearly 26 years following its theatrical release, Titanic is making its arrival on 4K Ultra HD with two different sets for purchase. Had I known that the film would be arriving this year on 4K Ultra HD, I wouldn’t have reviewed it earlier this summer. In any event, this is a 4K UHD release that is stacked with bonus features (scroll down to see what they are). As far as I can tell, the new…"Titanic Sets Sail on 4K Ultra HD"
Kelly Fremon Craig‘s adaptation of Judy Blume’s seminal Are You There G-d? It’s Me, Margaret. is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. My original review from the theatrical release: Kelly Fremon Craig follows up The Edge of Seventeen with an adaptation of Judy Blume’s beloved book, Are You There G-d? It’s Me, Margaret. It’s been over six years since Craig hit a home run with her feature directorial debut but the wait was worth…"Are You There G-d? It’s Me, Margaret. Arrives on Blu-ray, DVD"
Titanic takes a Romeo and Juliet approach while James Cameron and the crew go to painstaking efforts in recreating the ship and sinking. “It’s been 84 years…” There’s something about the RMS Titanic that has a staying power in the public consciousness. Maybe its because this supposedly unsinkable ship became just that: sinkable. The reported want of White Star Line managing director J. Bruce Ismay (Jonathan Hyde) to have Titanic to make the news in…"Titanic Is An Epic Achievement In Filmmaking Over 25 Years Later"
Kelly Fremon Craig follows up The Edge of Seventeen with an adaptation of Judy Blume’s beloved book, Are You There G-d? It’s Me, Margaret. It’s been over six years since Craig hit a home run with her feature directorial debut but the wait was worth it. If you’re a fan of Judy Blume, there’s a good chance that you’ll be satisfied by the final product. She hits this one out of the park, too. It…"Are You There G-d? It’s Me, Margaret. Brings the Book to the Screen"
The Oscar-nominated About Schmidt, starring Jack Nicholson, marks the 20th anniversary of its theatrical release in 2002. This is the first of two Jack Nicholson movies getting a milestone anniversary review in December. The other film is As Good As It Gets, celebrating 25 years on December 25. Anyway, it’s really hard to believe that About Schmidt is 20 years old this year. I can still remember watching the dramedy in theaters! As a film,…"About Schmidt Marks 20th Anniversary"
Richard Jewell, starring an award-worthy performance from Paul Walter Heuser, is now available for audiences to bring home on Blu-ray and DVD. Though if you’re in the mood to stream the Clint Eastwood film from the comfort of your couch or bed, it’s also on Digital/VOD. Richard Jewell takes us back to the immediate aftermath of the Centennial Park bombing during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Imagine saving the lives of hundreds of people…"Richard Jewell hits Blu-ray, DVD"
Richard Jewell takes us back to the immediate aftermath of the Centennial Park bombing during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Imagine saving the lives of hundreds of people celebrating during a concert. This is what one security guard was doing on a late summer night in July 1996. In spite of this, the FBI saw him as the lead suspect in their case. It would be roughly three months before coming to conclude that…"Richard Jewell Revisits 1996 Atlanta Bombing"
The Highwaymen tells the story of Bonnie and Clyde but from a different point of view as this film follows the detectives that brought them to justice. The Blind Side‘s John Lee Hooker takes us back to a different time when Texas Rangers Frank Hamer (Kevin Costner) and Maney Gault (Woody Harrelson) are forced out of retirement. The reason? Having to chase down a pair of folks named Bonnie (Emily Brobst) and Clyde (Ed Bossert). Hamer…"The Highwaymen doesn’t rise up"
Make no mistake that Primary Colors is a satire but the film’s events are rather uncanny when it comes to similarities with the 1992 Bill Clinton campaign. Henry Burton (Adrian Lester) signs on to manage the presidential campaign for Arkansas Governor Jack Stanton (John Travolta). Stanton has this charismatic attitude about the way he walks and talks. You can’t help but like the guy and want him to win! Stanton already has a strong team…"Primary Colors Really Goes For The Satire"
The spotlight is on Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in On the Basis of Sex as the future justice begins her fight against gender discrimination. A lot of what gets covered in this film was also covered in the Solzy Award-winning documentary, RBG. This makes so much of the film feel rather redundant to say the least. I won’t lie in that I questioned why would someone want to watch a biopic when one…"On the Basis of Sex: A Conventional Biopic At Best"
