Transformers is something I more or less hold the same opinion about when I watched it in theaters, 10 years later. It’s not terrible by any stretch and most of the action is well done, but the acting is subpar and the dialogue even worse.
Ingrid Goes West is a well made movie that tackles the darker side of social media, with comedic bite, and the obsession that can take over one’s life as was the case for Ingrid played by Aubrey Plaza turning in a great performance.
Silent Night, Deadly Night isn’t a horror film I’ve ever completely loved but considering there aren’t many great Christmas horror films out there and with some cheesy moments, it’s still a fun little 1980s flick.
Despicable Me 3 is a perfectly ‘fine’ CGI animated movie, though there’s nothing here that particularly stands out, but thanks to the Minions storyline and the scenes with Balthazar Bratt, I did manage to chuckle a few times.
Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the drama-thriller, The Killing of a Sacred Deer starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman. Click on the link below or image to the left to check out the features and artwork.
Scarecrow is a bit of a gem, one that I honestly never heard of though I guess it’s easy to get lost amongst the 1970s classics like The Godfather, Rocky, Taxi Driver and A Clockwork Orange just to name a few. Hopefully with this Blu-ray it will be re-discovered.
While The Trip to Spain might not have been as sharp as its Italian predecessor, it’s still a lot of fun with some truly laugh-out-loud lines, and just seeing Coogan and Brydon on the screen again was wonderful.
The 1967 version of Doctor Dolittle is a whimsical musical-fantasy that excels with some great set-pieces and a charismatic performance from its lead, Rex Harrison. Although it’s probably a tad too long for my taste, this is still a fun time for families even today.
The Yellow Handkerchief is a nicely acted road trip drama that works on an emotional level. The Blu-ray released through Twilight Time offers good video and audio transfers but there are no bonus features.
Woodshock was a film that was hard to sit through, not because of the emotional plights of its main character played by Kirsten Dunst, but because the story was nonsensical and had a third act that was utterly pretentious, nearly on the same level of Terrence Malick.
Night School is a flawed but fun enough 1981 film that’s part slasher part giallo that isn’t filled with many surprises yet it’s still entertaining if only for some decently suspense-filled scenes and a, ahem, fine performance from Rachel Ward.
