An intimate and intense view into the life of a family after its unifying member has died forms the basis for another Robert De Niro tour de face. Well cast, scripted and directed, Everybody’s Fine will tug at your heartsleeves and provide an object lesson into making family films that are meaningful.
Anne Hathaway is enchanting in her role as Ella, but this Cinderella re-imagining is a bit too uneven and silly for its own good.
A well crafted film by Steve Taylor, Blue Like Jazz takes viewers along a young man’s journey through faith lost and found. Both cinematography and soundtrack are first rate.
This 15th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray of the excellent Good Will Hunting from Lionsgate/Miramax seems to be a simple North American release of the German release from Kinowelt/StudioCanal. With that being said, it has superior picture quality to last year’s release from Lionsgate, but may not be worth an upgrade just for the two new featurettes with the cast and crew.
Good films? Outside of the original Mimic, absolutely not. Even a low MSRP can’t make me give Lionsgate’s Mimic: 3-Film Set Blu-ray a worthwhile recommendation. Skip it.
A vapid rom-com with little in the way of moving romance or comedy, Kate & Leopold comes to Blu-ray with an average looking HD transfer and acceptable lossless soundtrack.
It’s pure joy to watch Roberto Benigni’s comedy/drama about love, courage, and the triumph of the human spirit in the most dire of circumstances. StudioCanal finally brings the triple Academy Award winner to UK shelves on Blu-ray.
Madonna’s classic concert film/documentary, Truth or Dare, strikes a pose on Blu-ray, poised to show the Lady Gagas of the world how it’s truly done.
Disappointing drama about the last days of disco arrives in an equally disappointing transfer to Blu-ray from Miramax/Lionsgate.
This confusing Miramax thriller from 2000 featuring Ben Affleck and Charlize Theron arrives with a yet another disappointing transfer from distributor Lionsgate.
