Mindgamers Blu-ray Review

Visionary sci-fi thrillers can be either superb (The Matrix, Ex Machina) or abysmal (Battlefield: Earth); sadly, Andrew Goth’s Mindgamers (originally titled DxM) falls into the latter category: a stupifyingly garbled and uninvolving futuristic adventure mixing religious philosophy with quantum physics in the hopes of finding a common ground.

Our Man in Havana Blu-ray Review

Our Man in Havana is a droll, entertaining spoof of British Intelligence that is skillfully adapted by Graham Greene from his own novel and directed by Carol Reed. An added pleasure is the wonderful black & white location filming in Cuba by Oswald Morris, beautifully brought to Blu-ray by Twilight […]

Another Woman Blu-ray Review

Mid-life crisis hits many of us full-on and very hard, and that’s certainly the case in Woody Allen’s Another Woman, an outstanding production that presents several characters wrestling with the restlessness and dissatisfaction that can come to those who reach fifty.

The Founder Blu-ray Review

Michael Keaton was was largely ignored by the Academy for his role as Ray Kroc in The Founder , which was a shame, as it is probably his best performance of his career. The film is a fascinating story of how the McDonald brothers revolutionized the food industry and how one man made […]

Blackbeard’s Ghost Blu-ray Review

Robert Stevenson’s silly, rambunctious fantasy comedy Blackbeard’s Ghost continues the good-natured spirit of Walt Disney’s family comedies of the 1960s even if the movie’s premise sometimes doesn’t paint its characters with much intelligence and the goal seems always that slapstick be the order of the day.
