    Elvis (2022)

    I saw Elvis last night at Warner's with Baz and Austin Butler attending for Q&A after. Butler's performance is astonishing, while Hanks delivers one of the most manipulatively evil characterisations to ever grace a screen! Your body will feel the nearly 3 hour running time, but your mind will be...

    Indiana Jones 5 (2023)

    As for Indy rip offs...how about this 3 film 2008 series? To my knowledge it is only available as a set in Germany, but the films are available individually in the US. It has a totally English speaking cast, but I have no idea if it was ever released theatrically.

    UHD Review 1776 UHD Review

    I was hoping to gain a new appreciation for 1776 from these multiple versions and 4K bells and whistles, but for me it still ended up an odd production. It seems a strained mix of Broadway comedy and so-so show tunes overlaid with historical inaccuracies presented in authentic detail. This...

    What was your very first movie on physical media purchase?

    Dave's was the best! I worked nearby in Glendale and Dave's was a Tuesday weekly ritual. I loved it when he would have both directors and stars come in for disc signings. I commuted from the other side of LA in Orange County where on weekends Ken Crane's was the place to go for LD's. Just a few...

    What was your very first movie on physical media purchase?

    I had a Sony Umatic 3/4 inch cassette recorder. I got it in LA at Henry Radio at a little over $2000. I had to take out one of those sleazy loans to pay for it and was on a waiting list behind Frank Sinatra! I was able to also get 4 one hour $25 tapes for $100, and the goal that first night...

    Blu-ray Review Flower Drum Song Blu-ray Review

    Mine came last Thursday and I was able to view it several times over the weekend. It is a beautiful transfer and I have no technical complaints. From a story point, after the big "Grant Avenue" number and the following striptease exposing Quan's fast girl lifestyle, momentum is slowed down by...

    The Official Disney Movie Club Blu-ray Exclusives Thread

    I was never a fan of the Xerox sketchy animation era at Disney and neither was Walt Disney. It was all about economics, and to look respectable, the films even required a line drawing to be laid over the painted backgrounds so the sketchy animation could fit believably in a sketchy hand drawn...

    International Pre-Order Dolittle (2020) (3D Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Just got the disc and my Oppo won't load it! I get an "unknown disc" message after a long attempt to load the disc. Dolittle is a region free disc, but I tried using both A & B regions on my region free player to no avail. Anyone else having loading issues with the Dolittle 3D from Australia?

    UHD Review Uncharted UHD Review

    After watching the 4K disc last night and agreeing with all the above comments, I decided to revamp a post left months ago on another Uncharted thread... The Uncharted games were a huge success and had a major crossover following because of their cinematic style. The "cut scene" movies that...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Sorry to go back to the Theo Kalomirakis collection, but I had the pleasure of working with Theo 15 years ago. Not on a personal project, but at a corporate level. Theo is a self made man who's love of movies and their presentation inspired him to fill a niche that he was passionate about. Theo...

    Is eFilmCritic.com officially closed down?

    For 2 months I have tried to access the long standing site... eFilmCritic.com and it no longer opens. No information is given and doing a web search brings nothing either. I liked cross referencing their release schedule as I often found titles listed that were found nowhere else. Any...
