HEAT: DIRECTOR’S DEFINITION EDITION highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for May 9, 2017

HEAT | © 2017 Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week (or perhaps a week ago). HEAT: DIRECTOR’S DEFINITIVE EDITION There are a few movies that just do it for me. RONIN is one because I love the mash-up for characters all doing shady dealings in Europe. HEAT is one of Michael Mann’s best work because it has multiple players doing a variety of heinous crimes and brings together two actors that were (at the time) the top of their game in Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. Now, how both of these actors perform today is an […]Read On »

In its second season, ABC’s Tuesday night MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER finds the title heroine, played by Hayley Atwell, relocating from 1940s New York to 1940s Los Angeles. Peggy Carter, a British special agent working for the Strategic Scientific Reserve (the precursor of S.H.I.E.L.D. – AGENT CARTER s in fact a spin-off of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD), spent the first season trying to clear billionaire inventor Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) of treason charges. It would be an understatement to say that Carter’s skills were underestimated because of her gender. In Season 1, she bonded with fellow agent Daniel Sousa, played by […]Read On »

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON | © 2016 Universal Home Entertainment

Business is picking up in the video realm with some good stuff out this week and things will continue to get better in the coming weeks as studios get over the holiday hangover of virtually nothing coming out. Movies: STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON – We have seen a number of docudramas come out regarding the rise to fame of some of the most famous rock groups out there but the back stories of the rap world (except for maybe Eminem) have gone without any documentation. But now we get the behind-the-scenes look at one of the most famous rap groups of […]Read On »

William Forsythe isn’t as common a name as, say, John Smith, but you wouldn’t want to confuse the actor with the Scottish director Bill Forsyth (LOCAL HERO). And it’s happened, says actor Forsythe. “We used to stay at the same hotel in New York, as well as the choreographer. There’s a choreographer named William, and there were times we all three were there at once and we’d get our calls mixed up.” As an actor, the Brooklyn-born Forsythe is seldom confused with others. His tall build and piercing blue gaze have made him effective in many roles on both sides […]Read On »

Movie Review: RED LIGHTS

Rating: R Stars: Cillian Murphy, Sigourney Weaver, Robert De Niro, Elizabeth Olsen, Joely Richardson, Toby Jones Writer: Rodrigo Cortes Director: Rodrigo Cortes Distributor: Millennium Entertainment Release Date: July 13, 2012 It’s a measure of just how effective RED LIGHTS is that, even though we know there has to be a twist, we don’t guess what it is before writer/director/editor Rodrigo Cortes is ready to reveal it. Moreover, he plays fair throughout, leaving clues throughout. Unfortunately, the storytelling that gets us to this point is a bit muddled, so that we, along with the film, do some unnecessary traveling in circles […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: AMERICAN HORROR STORY actress Frances Conroy plays housekeeper

Frances Conroy in AMERICAN HORROR STORY - Season 1 | ©2011 FX

In AMERICAN HORROR STORY, which has its first-season finale (it’s been renewed for a second) tonight on FX at 10 PM, some ghosts appear as rotting phantoms and others appear alive and tangible. One ghost, however, is so complex that she’s actually played by two actresses. Frances Conroy is the primary incarnation of perennial housekeeper Moira O’Hara, starchy and generally reserved, but her seductive younger self is played by Alexandra Breckinridge. Which version of Moira we see depends largely on who is looking at her – we realize that protagonist Ben Harmon, played by Dylan McDermott, is starting to wise […]Read On »
