    3D Blu-ray Review Imax: Flight of the Butterflies: THE HTF 3D ADDICT REVIEW

    I have stopped writing 3D reviews mainly for the fact that there just isn't anything out there that impresses me anymore. Most of the stuff being released theatrically is upconversions. The classic fare has been distributed to so many other reviewers at once that I no longer get early peeks...

    Blu-ray Review Spetters Blu-ray Review

    Matt Hough Spetters Blu-ray Review Paul Verhoeven’s fifth Dutch film Spetters extended the international reputation he had earned with Soldier of Orange. It’s a long, stark, slice-of-life drama more depressing than exhilarating though certainly there are enough upbeat moments to keep the...

    Blu-ray Review The Woman in the Window Blu-ray Review

    Matt Hough The Woman in the Window Blu-ray Review The Woman in the Window is a prime film noir from Fritz Lang featuring outstanding performances and a story that intrigues from the start and draws one into its ever-tightening noose around its protagonist’s neck. [review]

    Blu-ray Review Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris Blu-ray Review

    Matt Hough Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris Blu-ray Review An unusual musical revue featuring songs of one of the world’s most unique balladeers, Denis Héroux’s Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris may be visually grounded in the 1970s, but its songs reflect...

    Blu-ray Review The Man Who Watched Trains Go By Blu-ray Review

    Matt Hough The Man Who Watched Trains Go By Blu-ray Review A nebbish out for revenge gets waylaid and settles instead for a cockeyed brand of wish fulfillment in Harold French’s The Man Who Watched Trains Go By. [review]

    Blu-ray Review Father Figures Blu-ray Review

    Ken_McAlinden Father Figures Blu-ray Review Father Figures is the directorial debut of Lawrence Sher, who was the cinematographer on several modern comedies including all three of the Hangover films. The bawdy approach to the "Who's your daddy" premise is certainly in that vein. Owen...

    Blu-ray Review Five Steps to Danger Blu-ray Review

    Matt Hough Five Steps to Danger Blu-ray Review A cat-and-mouse thriller turns interestingly into a Cold War espionage tale in Henry S. Kesler’s Five Steps to Danger, a 1957 independent production which is the latest remastered thriller in the Classic Flix line. [review]

    Blu-ray Review Harper Blu-ray Review

    Richard Gallagher Harper Blu-ray Review Ross MacDonald's hard-boiled private eye Lew Archer made his big screen debut (albeit with his last name changed) in Harper, adapted from MacDonald's 1949 novel "The Moving Target." The film features a superlative cast headed by Paul Newman, an...

    Blu-ray Review Coco Blu-ray Review

    Todd Erwin Coco Blu-ray Review Coco is, quite possibly, Pixar's most colorful and beautifully animated feature to date. Disney’s Multi-Screen Edition contains the film on Blu-ray and DVD, plus an extra Blu-ray disc full of extras, and a digital copy to boot. [review]

    Blu-ray Review Only the Brave Blu-ray Review

    Kevin EK Only the Brave Blu-ray Review Only the Brave never quite qualifies for hotshot certification on Blu-ray. [review]

    Blu-ray Review The L-Shaped Room Blu-ray Review

    Richard Gallagher The L-Shaped Room Blu-ray Review The L-Shaped Room is, for its time, a surprisingly frank adult drama which features a brilliant lead performance by Leslie Caron. It has arrived on Blu-ray from Twilight Time with a superb black & white transfer courtesy of Sony. [review]

    Blu-ray Review Casanova Brown Blu-ray Review

    Matt Hough Casanova Brown Blu-ray Review An amiable comedy of miscommunication with delightful stars and touches of screwball comedy tropes of old, Sam Wood’s Casanova Brown is fairly lightweight material for two Academy Award-winning stars. [review]

    Blu-ray Review Along Came Jones Blu-ray Review

    Matt Hough Along Came Jones Blu-ray Review A case of mistaken identity fuels the comedy hijinks in Stuart Heisler’s comic adventure Along Came Jones. [review]

    Blu-ray Review Little Orphant Annie (1918) Blu-ray Review

    Matt Hough Little Orphant Annie (1918) Blu-ray Review With the vast majority of silent films no longer existent due to the ravages of time, faulty studio preservation techniques, or plain neglect, it’s something of a miracle that we have 1918’s Little Orphant Annie directed by Colin...

    Blu-ray Review Gidget Blu-ray Review

    Richard Gallagher Gidget Blu-ray Review Gidget, a somewhat more serious movie than one might expect, has come to Blu-ray from Twilight Time with a very nice transfer from Sony. Film historians seem to agree that it is the first Hollywood "beach film." [review]

    UHD Review The Foreigner Blu-ray Review

    Todd Erwin The Foreigner Blu-ray Review The Foreigner is something of a departure for Jackie Chan, a far more serious political thriller than his fans have expected from him in the past. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. [review]

    Blu-ray Review Raw Deal (1948) Blu-ray Review

    Matt Hough Raw Deal (1948) Blu-ray Review Anthony Mann’s Raw Deal is another in his brilliant series of films noir offering breathtaking cinematography and a clutch of first-rate performances featuring a triangle love story amid a cat-and-mouse dash for freedom. [review]

    Blu-ray Review Marshall Blu-ray Review

    Matt Hough Marshall Blu-ray Review An early case in the career of pioneering NAACP lawyer Thurgood Marshall makes Reginald Hudlin’s Marshall worth seeing even if the courtroom theatrics and the drama therein never reaches explosive or truly memorable heights. [review]
