“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…

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…

Roman Holiday (1953) – Blu-Ray Review

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

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…

Set after Star Trek: Enterprise, and a decade before The Original Series this incarnation of…

Jerry Lewis: 10 Films Collection

No matter one’s opinion of Jerry Lewis, you can’t deny he had an effect on slapstick, and comedy during the 50s and 60s. Paramount Pictures now releases a ten movie collection spanning that era that showcases Lewis’ talent both in front of and behind the camera in a set that shares some of his classic…

Terminator Salvation (2009) – McG

The final stop with the Sc-Fi Chronicles book for me with the Terminator franchise, as I’ve now had a chance to cover all of them, is this interesting entry from the same pair of writers who gave us Rise of the Machines. This one could have been alright, though I feel McG was probably the…

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999) – George Lucas

  Remember, right back before the Phantom Menace came out, when anticipation was reaching a fever pitch? I miss that. Sure we had the wonderful build up to The Force Awakens, but the gap between films was no where near as long as it had been for those of us who had been invested in…
