The entire basis for Rumor Has It… is that a woman learns that both her mother and grandmother were the basis for 1967’s The Graduate. Following the end of Sundance, I was in the mood for a comedy and decided to rewatch this film for the first time since the theatrical release. The fact of the matter is that this film has a solid amount of laughs and laughs are so desperately needed right now.…"Rumor Has It… Is Still Funny Over 16 Years Later"
Draft Day may not be the most realistic look an NFL office under pressure every April but this sports drama is still a solid film on rewatch. Whenever I hear Kevin Costner is starring in a sports movie, it commands my attention. When it comes to sports films, the man can do no wrong. Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, Tin Cup, need I say more? And so it was that I saw Costner on the…"Draft Day: NFL Film Bypasses Realism For Drama"
Thirteen Days may have been critically acclaimed but the film takes some major dramatic licenses in revisiting the Cuban Missile Crisis. If we want to get technical with the anniversary, the wide release didn’t come until January 12, 2001. But for the sake of Oscar qualification, New Line released the film on December 25, 2000. There weren’t many critics groups giving the film many awards. The Critics Choice Awards were among the few to honor…"Thirteen Days Marks 20th Anniversary"
Field of Dreams, the 1989 classic starring Kevin Costner, is the quintesssential baseball film and the perfect baseball movie to watch on Father’s Day. “If you build it, he will come.” These seven words are among the most famous lines in cinematic history. “Ease his pain.” “Go the distance.” “Is this heaven? No, it’s Iowa.” And there’s the Terrence Mann monologue about why people will come. Field of Dreams takes its basis from perhaps one…"Field of Dreams: The Quintessential Baseball Movie"
Tin Cup has joined the Warner Brothers Archive Collection with a newly issued Blu-ray coming just one year shy of the film’s 25th anniversary.

In Tin Cup, Costner reteams with Bull Durham director Ron Shelton to make…"Tin Cup Gets A Warner Archive Reissue"
The Art of Racing in the Rain is going to be an emotional film for anybody who has ever had a dog as a member of their pack. I know it’s the biggest question on your mind and I’ll get to it in due time. Before I do, I’ll add that there is a nice pile of laughs in here, too. Some of these laughs come with what Enzo (Kevin Costner) says in the film. …"The Art of Racing in the Rain is Heartbreaking"
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"
