Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx headline the fantastic Michael Mann film, Collateral that gets its 4K release from Paramount Pictures this week.

Popeye (1980) – Blu-Ray Review

Coming home on blu-ray from Paramount Pictures for the first time is the Robin Williams film, Popeye. This one is a bit of an odd creature, it looks gorgeous, has a fantastic cast, beautifully crafted sets, but a few things that make you raise your eyebrows. For instance, something based on a comic book, and…

It’s A Wonderful Life (1946) – 4K Review

It’s hard to believe that the holiday season of 2020 is right around the corner. Soon, television screens will be alight with familiar and nostalgic images that dwell on the premise of good cheer, and peace to all, and a solid cup of eggnog. There are a few musts for me over the holiday seasons,…

Star Trek: Picard (2020) – Blu-Ray Review

The latest iteration of the long enduring Star Trek franchise, Picard, comes to blu-ray this week from Paramount Canada, and it’s gorgeous.

For the first time ever, the Audrey Hepburn/Gregory Peck classic, Roman Holiday, from 1953, is being released to blu-ray by Paramount Pictures.

Magnum P.I. (2019) Season 2 – DVD Review

Jay Hernandez returns as Thomas Sullivan Magnum, private investigator for Season Two, released today on DVD from Paramount Pictures. While Hernandez continues to make the role his own, and I’m becoming more and more of a fan of this reboot, I am still completely committed to the original, starring Tom Selleck (which leads to this…

Scoob! (2020) – Blu-Ray Review

I have been a Scooby-Doo (voiced originally by Don Messick and now by the one and only Frank Welker (who played the original Fred Jones, and transitioned to Scooby in 2002)), fan since I first discovered him in the mid-70s as I spent Saturday mornings (the only time cartoons were on back in the day)…

Clueless 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray Review

Clueless is 25 years old today, and I have a hard time believing that for a couple of reasons. 1) That would mean I’m about 15 years older than I think I am and 2) the film still endures, is still relevant, and damned funny. Paramount Canada is celebrating the date by a 25th Anniversary…

Gladiator: 20th Anniversary 4k Review

It’s hard to believe that Gladiator is twenty years old. I can still recall the evening I saw in the theatre, and how the group of friends and I simply loved it. Ridley Scott proved what an amazing and technical director he was, and continues to be, Russell Crowe became a new hero to many…
