Victor Saville’s The Long Wait might not have the lure of Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer to draw one to the proceedings, but star Anthony Quinn does a fine job making his two-fisted protagonist a suitable replacement for the brutish tough guy antihero.

Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody Blu-ray Review
Sony’s biopic Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody arrives on Blu-ray, but the film spends too much time recreating her more famous musical performances than delving into her life in any detail.
The Long, Long Trailer Blu-ray Review
After conquering television with I Love Lucy, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz decided to use the hiatus between seasons of their hit show to parlay their newfound popularity into a hit movie, and they found it in Vincente Minnelli’s The Long, Long Trailer.
Imitation of Life (1934) – Criterion Blu-ray Review
One of the most popular American novelists following WWI and one of the most widely read female novelists of the 20th Century, Fannie Hurst’s work combined the romantic and sentimental with the pressing social issues of her time. Her novels also proved to be great material for Hollywood to adapt …
Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939) Blu-ray Review
One of the most fondly remembered classics from cinema’s Golden Age, Sam Wood’s Goodbye, Mr. Chips examines a life well lived in a low-key, rather leisurely way making its narrative points and etching its characters so subtly that its sentiment, humor, and nostalgia are as natural as breathing.
Rocky: The Knockout Collection UHD Review
Warner/MGM’s Rocky: The Knockout Collection is a bit of a misnomer. Sure, we get the first four films in the franchise, plus a new director’s cut of the fourth, all in UHD, but the set has some QC issues, as well as being short on special features.

Rancho Notorious Blu-ray Review
“Hate, murder, and revenge”: Those are the last four words of a song featured continually throughout Fritz Lang’s hyperbolic western Rancho Notorious, and they certainly describe both the theme and thesis of the narrative therein.
Our Dancing Daughters Blu-ray Review
Harry Beaumont’s Our Dancing Daughters is an entertaining silent comedy-drama: a notable concoction that offered Joan Crawford the laughter, the tears, the dance moves, and the splendiferous clothes that would assure her a place in movie stardom that she’d enjoy for the next forty-two years.
B’Twixt Now And Sunrise: The Authentic Cut Blu-ray Review
Francis Ford Coppola, serving as writer, producer, and director, originally made “Twixt” in 2011, but must have been disappointed when the film barely received any notice in the United States. This new director’s cut, christened “B’Twixt Now and Sunrise (The Authentic Cut)” has transformed the film into something more personal …
The Pez Outlaw Blu-ray Review
