 Little Britain: Season 2

With Saturday Night Live sinking further into mediocrity, sketch comedy was in desperate need of some new blood. From out of England came two warped comedic minds, Matt Lucas and David Walliams and their brilliantly twisted sketch comedy show Little Britain,...

 Dharma & Greg: Season 1

1997 saw the arrival of a new sitcom that helped reinvigorate the romantic comedy on network television. Even though it wasn’t particularly original, Dharma & Greg it was a very well-written and well-made show featuring two leads that had undeniable...

 A Nos Amours

A Nos Amours (1983) chronicles the day-to-day existence of a 16-year-old French girl named Suzanne (Bonnaire) in the same realistic way as a John Cassavetes film in the sense that director Maurice Pialat also places an emphasis on human behaviour. Pialat...

 Fried Green Tomatoes: Anniversary Edition

Every decade has its chick flicks that define those years and feature a who’s who of up-and-coming actresses mixed with veterans. In the 1980s, it was Steel Magnolias (1989) and in the 1990s it was Fried Green Tomatoes (1991), a southern folktale based...

 The Munsters: Season 2

Note to reader: this piece is a not a complete review, as for some reason the PR company saw it fit to send disc 1 only, of the 6 disc, Season 2 box set, which makes it hard to give a full interpretation of the release. Please be aware that this sort...

 Zathura: A Space Adventure

It’s not the most likely of pairings. Take an actor who made his name in Swingers, give him the director’s chair for the sequel to Jumanji, throw in two unknown child actors as leads and hope for the best. Funny then, that that’s just...

 One Last Thing…

Fresh from his feature film debut of the underrated Prey for Rock ‘n’ Roll (2003), director Alex Steyermark’s next project, One Last Thing… (2005) looked, on paper anyways, like the potential for a cliché-ridden mess – your standard disease...

 Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid: The Ultimate Collector’s Edition

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) marked the first time that legendary actors Paul Newman and Robert Redford teamed up on the big screen together and the results were one of the classic buddy action movies of all time. Chemistry is crucial in... 

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

 The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (2005) is a film that deals with the consequences of one’s actions. It’s a gritty, modern western in the tradition of Sam Peckinpah’s Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974) albeit no where near as nihilistic. Pete... 

Underworld: Evolution

 Underworld: Evolution

The first Underworld movie (2003) was a modest box office hit but enough, apparently, to spawn a sequel (2006) that continues the war that rages between vampires and werewolves. Director Len Wiseman pillaged visuals from both The Matrix and The Crow movies...
