    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ Wonder Woman 1984 - in 4k UHD

    What a terrible and disappointing sequel this was! Yikes. Bad on so many levels.

    Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021)

    I could not bring myself to watch "Man of Steel" again because Henry Cavill is so awful, but DID watch "Batman vs Superman Ultimate Edition" last night to prep for the new cut of Justice League tonight. Discovered that I liked Ben Affleck's take on Batman way more than I had remembered. And...

    A version of Bram Stoker's "Jewel of the Seven Stars," right?

    The snappy dialogue is courtesy of an uncredited script rewrite by William Goldman.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Pajama Game – in Blu-ray

    Saw the first Broadway revival in 1973 with Barbara McNair, Hal Linden , and Cab Calloway. So good I went twice. Reviews at the time said it was better than the first production.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Trading Places – in Blu-ray

    Yeah, Landis was responsible for decapitating three people. He should be in jail.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Two Mules for Sister Sara — in Blu-ray

    "... even (it is rumored) doing a sci-fi picture"?

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Haunting (1999) — in Blu-ray

    Wise's film is today's equivalent of an art film, and it would have an audience commensurate with that category.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Alice in Wonderland (1933) - in Blu-ray

    The rumor is that the supposed stars did not wear the costumes or the masks. Others did, and the stars looped the dialogue.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Terminator Dark Fate -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    The last 20 minutes were not impenetrably dark in the theater.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Anne Bancroft Collection - in Blu-ray

    Bancroft and Peter Falk made a much better couple (and thus better play) of The Prisoner of Second Avenue on Broadway.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Dracula (1979) - in Blu-ray

    Argh! This, done on Broadway before the film with Langella and Edward Gorey's sets, was wonderful (different script). The film they made from it is an entirely different matter. It screws with much vampiric lore to no end. And killing off that major character at the end is like spitting in the...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Unbelievable - in Stream-o-Vision

    I, for one, am pleased that Mr. Harris's reviews of streaming content are here. I am one of "his" readers. And there we are.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Apocalypse Now Final Cut -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Saw this on opening day at The Ziegfeld as well. I will never forget that thwack thwack thwack sound slowly coming into clarity, then the Doors, and then the napalm. No opening or closing credits, but we did receive a printed program that is somewhere in my attic in a box. Glorious all around, I...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Behold a Pale Horse - in Blu-ray

    I have not seen Finney's screen test. As an actor he seemingly could do anything, nevertheless it's hard to imagine him as Lawrence. Perhaps a trip to the BFI is in order!

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Behold a Pale Horse - in Blu-ray

    As great an actor as Finney was, I cannot imagine him as Lawrence.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Front Page (1974) - in Blu-ray

    No love for this when it came out. I enjoyed it more than most (except for Burnett, for whom I've never had patience).

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ They Might Be Giants -- in Blu-ray

    Does the new blu have the ending in the supermarket?

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Universal Horror Collection Volume 1 -- in Blu-ray

    Volume 2 consists of four mostly mediocre films starring Lionel Atwill. I like "Pinky," but these are far from his best films. He's good, but the rest not so much. Even "Murders in the Zoo" is not as good as its reputation.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Warlock & Bandolero! -- in Blu-ray

    I like Dean Martin's films. Heck, I even have Mr. Ricco!

    The Midnight Man – Blu-ray Review

    Saw this as a kid at the Trylon Theater on Queens Blvd. when it first came out. Good late period Burt. Have had a German blu for some time.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Stan & Ollie - in Blu-ray

    I went with two friends. Afterward, as we left the theater, we all said "Perfect" at the same time. And it was. Looking forward to this blu.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Body Snatcher - in Blu-ray

    I am looking forward to "Isle of the Dead" with Karloff on blu.
