Maid in Manhattan is a harmless enough rom-com but not entirely memorable either, though I suppose Jennifer Lopez acquitted herself well enough, though Ralph Fiennes seemed completely wrong for the role.
A Prayer for the Dying could’ve been a great movie and instead, thanks to studio interference, we get something that’s merely ‘good’. The acting from Rourke and Hoskins was probably the saving grace, not to mention Liam Neeson’s brief role, and in the end, I was fairly entertained.
Royal Flash is a fun adventure-comedy with what is a deplorable central character but played so perfectly by the energetic and personable Malcolm McDowell, though from my reading, fans of the novel weren’t overly thrilled with the adaptation. This Blu-ray released by Twilight Time offers excellent audio/video transfers and the features are decent enough highlighted by a commentary by Malcolm McDowell.
This 25th Anniversary edition of Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a great set and includes all the features from the Vista Series edition but gets a boost from great audio/video transfers to go along with an all around fantastic movie that is just as good when I last saw it (probably a good 15 years ago). Although the price is a bit steep ($24 at the time of this writing), it’s well worth the cost.
Unlike the 3D presentation, I found the 2D to be very fulfilling. The film though still does not entertain me much, and I don’t see myself ever wanting to re-watch it again. But for fans of the classic tale, or parents willing to sit through this with their little ones, sure, give it a shot. Just don’t be upset if you find yourself holding the same opinion I have.
