Gemini Man (2019) – Blu-Ray Review

It should have worked. An Academy Award winning director (though action is not his forte), a bankable lead actor, a solid supporting cast, and the seed of a solid story.¬†Will Smith gets his Bourne on (a couple of times) in Gemini Man, the Ang Lee action film that comes home on blu-ray and DVD from…

Gosford Park (2001) – Robert Altman

The film is based, loosely, on the non-fiction The Feather Men by Ranulph Fiennes, which…
