Nine Lives Blu-ray Review

Family comedies that take a workaholic father figure and open his eyes to the world that’s passing him by through some supernatural means are a fairly common commodity, and there’s certainly nothing special about Barry Sonnenfeld’s Nine Lives, a banal domestic farce that’s painfully predictable.

The Great Gatsby UHD Review

Several attempts have been made to adapt F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “great American novel” The Great Gatsby for the big screen, and none have done it quite as splashy or flashy as Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 film. Unfortunately, as with many of Luhrmann’s movies, too much attention is made to the look […]


On Dangerous Ground Blu-ray Review

Nicholas Ray, one of the most interesting film directors of the mid-twentieth century, has been treated well by the Blu-ray gods of late. Criterion released a beautiful Blu-ray of In a Lonely Place in May, and more recently we were finally treated to a properly framed release of Johnny Guitar […]

Café Society Blu-ray Review

Jupiter Ascending UHD Review

You can’t call a film by the Wachowski’s visually boring, and their latest, Jupiter Ascending, certainly is pretty to look at. Unfortunately, there’s not much else there, a story with so many plot holes you can drive a truck through and a hero (Mila Kunis as the title character) that could […]
