Flagship products are generally harder to evaluate for reviewers like me, since they cost a lot more than their capable siblings and generally offer only incremental improvements. Thankfully, in Oppo’s case it’s not nearly so hard, because they offer a truly unique feature set in addition to myriad improvements to […]

Besides the missing apostrophe in its title, Malcolm D. Lee’s Girls Trip is also missing originality, wit, and class. In their place are predictability, trash talk, and raunch.
A genuine holiday classic, Miracle on 34th Street still works its magical story of heart and hope, faith and trust seven decades after its original release.
Warner’s decision to bring classic animated television holiday specials that were originally created for the small screens of the mid to late 1960s is an odd one. Granted, the Peanuts Holiday Collection contains three of the highest rated holiday specials in the history of television, but not a great deal is […]
It’s pretty ironic that one of the most lauded and long-lasting cult phenomenons of recent television history – Buffy the Vampire Slayer – was instigated by a rather lame, erratically written, directed, and acted horror comedy.
Mel Gibson and Danny Glover played Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh memorably in 4 Lethal Weapon films directed by Richard Donner. The Lethal Weapon action movie franchise is remembered fondly by many fans, and there was understandable skepticism when it was announced that Lethal Weapon would be rebooted as a […]
Recent attempts to revitalize the western through made-for-home video releases have been rather muted and inert, and no better example of that exists than Richard Gabai’s Justice.

A noir docudrama that’s long on suspense and a brilliant exercise in taut direction and evocative cinematography, Anthony Mann’s T-Men is a film that deserves to be far better known.
On its own, Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled is an adequate telling of Thomas P. Cullinan’s Gothic melodrama, but it really seems weighed down by the arty trappings and a shift not only in point of view but an attempt to minimize the very excesses that give the story its life […]
The Vietnam War, a brilliant new documentary by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, comes to Blu-ray from PBS.

Billed as a zombie romantic comedy, Warm Bodies is a much better film than it deserves to be, thanks to a clever script and the performances of its leading cast.
Transformers: The Last Knight continues the series’ proclivity for weaving in a new thread of the transformers history on planet earth, this time inserting the metallic race into the mythology of Arthur, Merlin and the Knights of the Round Table. It’s exhausting to have yet another new layer grafted onto […]
With its seventh entry in the murderous doll franchise, Don Manicini’s Cult of Chucky certainly has exhausted whatever novelty and gory fun the idea of a slasher doll come to life may have once had.
