Dune: Part 2 Arrives on 4K Ultra HD

Dune: Part 2 is now available for viewers to bring home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD–alternatively, one can buy and rent digitally. The film will start streaming May 21 on Max. What follows is my review from the theatrical release: Dune: Part 2 is the next chapter in the Dune saga as filmmaker Denis Villeneuve brings his vision of the Frank Herbert novel to the screen. To borrow a line from Anakin Skywalker:…

Dune: Part 2 Is An Epic Experience on the Big Screen

Dune: Part 2 is the next chapter in the Dune saga as filmmaker Denis Villeneuve brings his vision of the Frank Herbert novel to the screen. To borrow a line from Anakin Skywalker: “I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.” It’s such a classic line and comes to mind upon seeing a Dune movie on the big screen. Arrakis is a sand planet so I’m not going to…

Amistad Marks 25th Anniversary

Based on the true events about Spanish slave ship La Amistad, Amistad marks the 25th anniversary of its theatrical release in 1997. For the second time in a few years, Steven Spielberg followed a summer blockbuster with a serious period picture. Funny enough, both action films were installments of the Jurassic Park franchise. Two stars from The Lost World: Jurassic Park would make their way into this film: Pete Postlethwaite and Arliss Howard as William…

Good Will Hunting Marks 25th Anniversary

The Oscar-winning Good Will Hunting, written by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, marks the 25th anniversary of its theatrical release in 1997. The film would earn $225 million worldwide against a production budget of $10 million. The box office to production ratios in the 1990s-2000s are statistics that we’ll rarely see again. You might have a film that takes off every once in a while but after the pandemic and shorter theatrical windows, we’ll never…

Andor Changes Star Wars As We Know It

Taking place five years before Rogue One and the Battle of Yavin, the first season of Andor changes Star Wars as we know it. Through the years, the Star Wars canon has opened up in ways that audiences could not have imagined. George Lucas certainly could not have dreamed it up even if he tried. We know that Lucas is a great world builder but it’s taken many people to expand on what Star Wars…

Andor Pushed Back To Late September

With the release of a new trailer and artwork for Andor today, it was also announced that the series would premiere in late September. Initially, Andor was set to premiere in late August. What this now means is that there are fewer episodes that will be conflicting with She-Hulk: Attorney-at-Law. To be fair, Andor will air seven episodes opposite She-Hulk’s four during those dates. The new premiere date is now September 21 with an unprecedented…

Dune Is A Big Screen Experience

Denis Villeneuve brings Frank Herbert’s Dune to the big screen with a film that must be experienced on the biggest screen possible. I’m going to be honest that this review took me a bit longer to write. This is not so much because I had the trouble finding the words but because a Ted Sarandos-triggered depression has been kicking my ass since the screening ended. Wednesday was slightly better but at some point, I have…

Avengers: Age of Ultron – The Road to Endgame

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the penultimate film of Marvel’s Phase 2 and paves the landscape for phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This film is every bit as epic of an installment as the initial team-up in 2012.  Since the collapse of S.H.I.E.LD., the Avengers have been busy at work in defeating H.Y.D.R.A.  This time, they’re taking out Baron Wolfgang von Strucker’s (Thomas Kretschmann) base in Sokovia.  It just so happens that this…

Thor: The Dark World – The Road to Endgame

Thor: The Dark World is far from the best film in the franchise as the Avenger battles against Malekith’s attempt to destroy the universe. The sequel incorporates a prologue like its predecessor.  This a great way of setting not just the tone but introduce us to new characters.  It turns out that once upon a time, Asgard was at battle against the Dark Elves.  But this battle is one that is far from over.  It’s…
