Ministry of Fear [Criterion Collection] Blu-ray Review

A classic WW II film noir, the Criterion Collection gives us one of Fritz Lang’s spy thrillers with decent remastering and a good period cast. If not at the top of the heap for this genre, it remains an engaging watch.

Laura Blu-ray Review

Laura is a well-crafted film noir that has received a fabulous restoration from 20th Century Fox. A tense plot, deftly directed by Otto Preminger and delivered by great actors will keep you on the edge of your seat until the film’s conclusion.

A sci-fi thriller that taps into contemporary anxieties about terrorism and increasing use of government surveillance, Un-Go may not be perfect, but is a refreshing change from the usual anime series we see.
