Air Force One is a strange film, a kind of film from simpler times I guess but after 20 years, for the most part the film holds up well, mainly for the performances by Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman more so than the dated visual effects.

The “Limited Edition” release of the current roster of the Jurassic Park franchise (that is until June) is a well done package by Universal, though the 4K transfers weren’t exactly incredible upgrades over their Blu-ray counterparts, outside of maybe the audio.

The Lincoln Lawyer isn’t breaking any new ground in the legal thriller genre. The plot itself is less mystery and more character so those expecting some twist might be disappointed. That being said, as somebody who has never been enamored with Matthew McConaughey, here he’s near pitch perfect for the part.

Blood Father is a beautifully crafted drama about redemption and reconciliation featuring two great and emotional performances by Mel Gibson and Erin Moriarty in conjunction with an efficient story that doesn’t wear out its welcome with superfluous scenes.

Trust Me is not the perfect comedy-drama and probably could’ve used a couple rewrites but as a follow-up to his 2008 film, Choke, it’s not bad and he assembles (no pun intended) a fine set of actors and an at least engaging story. The DVD released by Anchor Bay sadly is basic with no features while the audio/video transfers are merely adequate.

The Client is a fulfilling suspense-thriller propelled by three solid performances, adequate direction from Joel Schumacher (arguably his last ‘good’ movie) despite a predictable script. The Blu-ray is limited in features but the audio and video are a good upgrade over its DVD counterpart.

Cellular is a high-octane thriller with great action and suspense throughout. Kim Basinger, Chris Evans and William H. Macy all turn in great performances with a story that could’ve easily gone wrong and became just another forgettable thriller. The Blu-ray offers up solid video and audio transfers and although there is nothing new in the features department, what is there is fascinating to watch.

The Jurassic Park: Ultimate Trilogy is far from perfect but with one great film, one entertaining film and another with squandered potential, this is still a worthwhile set to add to anyone’s collection. The features have all been ported over and even include a well-made six-part documentary (which totals 130 minutes in length). The video is a bit disappointing but the audio is excellent.

shorts

This will be a quick review. Shorts is a movie for kids made by a big kid in writer/director Robert Rodriguez continuing on from the modestly successful Spy Kids movies he made in between Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Planet Terror and Machete, oh and he has a fourth Spy Kids in the pipeline. I guess he figures while he’s making movies targeting adults, might as well give the kids something. Read More…
