Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (2022) – 4K Review

Warner Brother invited me back to the magical world of Hogwarts and more with a copy of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore on 4K. It’s been four years since Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, so the biggest thing anyone can do before diving into the beautiful 4K transfer of Warner Brothers’ Fantastic Beasts:…

Dune (2021) – 4K Review

Warner Brothers made sure they started my 2022 right by getting a 4K copy of Denis Villeneuve’s Dune into my hands to blow my mind. One of my favorite films of the year, this disc is a that you’re going to want to put on anytime you want to demo the beauty and the sharpness…

The Haunting of Bly Manor (2020) – Blu-Ray Review

Writer/director Mike Flanagan has been on my one to watch list since Occulus, I love how he tells his tales of the supernatural, and when he adapted The Haunting of Hill House, I had to share that with everyone, as I was sucked in by each episode, and was left an emotional wreck by the…

“Crocodile” Dundee Trilogy Blu-Ray Review

I remember when “Crocodile” Dundee first hit theatres, I remember seeing it at the American base in Bermuda while we were living there in the 80s. But things really took off for me and Mick Dundee (Paul Hogan) when it hit video. It was the first VHS cassette I ever bought (on a family trip…

In the Heights (2021) – 4K Review

Musicals, when done right, can be a powerful thing, and Warner Brothers 4K release of In the Heights isn’t just a musical done right, it is joy captured on film, and the images and sound practically pop off the screen in crystal clear celebration. Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the music and lyrics for this beautiful film,…

My Fair Lady (1964) – 4K Review

A high definition upgrade can be a revelation, and if the film is a classic, it can not only revitalize the film (not to mention save it from further degradation), it can make it look better than it ever has. That is the verdict on Paramount Picture’s release of the 1964 Rex Harrison, Audrey Hepburn…

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…

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…

Mary Poppins Returns (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

The Oscar nominated Mary Poppins Returns comes home on blu-ray and DVD today from Disney. Marrying the nostalgia of the original film, released some fifty-four years ago, with a poignant and emotional new story, the character comes back to the big screen (and now home) with the wonderful Emily Blunt stepping comfortably and confidently into…
