Rating: PG-13 Stars: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson, Matthew Rhys, Bob Odenkirk, Bruce Greenwood, Carrie Coon, Tracy Letts, Bradley Whitford, Bruce Greenwood, Alison Brie, Jesse Plemons Writers: Liz Hannah and Josh Singer Director: Steven Spielberg Distributor: 20th Century Fox Release Date: December 29, 2017 A 1970s-set drama about a newspaper in Washington, D.C. may not sound like the feel-good movie of the year. However, for those who felt 2017 was the epitome of an absurdist political nightmare, THE POST may bring perfect holiday cheer. While Watergate ultimately got the bigger press – think ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN (which this […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Domnhall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern Benicio Del Toro, Joonas Suotamo Writer: Rian Johnson, based on characters created by George Lucas Director: Rian Johnson Distributor: Disney Release Date: December 14, 2017 By now, it is evident that any kind of adaptation of pre-existing material – sequels, books into films, films into TV series, and so on – is going to get a very strong reaction from people who have strong sentiments about the original. This means […]Read On »


New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 12/19


Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. GAME OF THRONES: THE COMPLETE SEVENTH SEASON We only got seven episodes of the seventh season of one of the best shows going (ever?) but oh what a seven episodes it was. Much of the payoff from the six other seasons were delivered in this season with John Snow (Kit Harington) and the Northerners meeting up with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and forming an uneasy alliance to combat against not just the Lannisters but also the horde of undead beyond the wall. Along the way we get […]Read On »



PHANTOM THREAD movie poster | ©2017 Focus Features

Rating: R Stars: Daniel Day-Lewis, Vicky Krieps, Lesley Manville Writer: Paul Thomas Anderson Director: Paul Thomas Anderson Distributor: Focus Features Release Date: December 20, 2017 PHANTOM THREAD manages the difficult but not entirely laudable feat of being both unpredictable and staid. We can’t guess where this tale of an elite dressmaker and his smitten muse is going, but the thread doesn’t remain shiny all the way through. Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, PHANTOM THREAD is set in 1950s London. Everyone is still feeling the impact of WWII, but the wealthy and the royal still have the need for […]Read On »

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. THE DEFIANT ONES This is the interesting story of the partnership between rap superstar and producer Dr. Dre and legendary producer Jimmy Iovine.

The series, directed by Allen Hughes, offers some really cool behind-the-scenes look at the recording studios, the homes they started in and into the ginormous mansions once they made their […]Read On »

THE HITMANS BODYGUARD | © 2017 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD When I first saw the trailer to THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD I thought it was another big miss for Ryan Reynolds in a continuing up and down career. However, my low expectations may be one of the reasons that I liked the film. It doesn’t really pretend to be anything more than it is which is a totally impossible, corny flick that is incredibly chalk full of foul language, which doesn’t bother me at all. Reynolds plays a body guard that is tasked with protecting […]Read On »
