    Skip It Well-remembered as the first of many knockoffs of Steven Spielberg's game-changing Jaws, William Girdler's Grizzly (1976) was more nightmare fuel for anyone whose parents were tricked (again?) by the film's soft PG rating. Long story short: humongous bear terrorizes peaceful campers, devouring his victims after swatting off claws and other body parts like a hot knife through butter. Warnings to close the park are ignored, victims pile up, and the pros are finally called in to slay the savage beast. Even the ending is cribbed di...Read the entire review More...
  2. LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman: Rage of AtlantisFri, 31 Aug 2018 09:11:14 PDT
    Skip It The Movie:Before getting into Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis, I have a random story here, which I've scantly harkened back to in similar DC Comics/Lego/Warner collaboration efforts. My almost two-year old is a fan of Moana, and watched it a ton, to the point where instead of saying TV' to request us turn it on, he says Moana.' Recently though, I successfully weaned him onto stop action movies, specifically Wes Anderson stop action movies. So now he watches Isle of Dogs for the doggies, I watch it for the jokes. Viva parental trickery!Anyway, Rage of Atlantiswas written by Jim Krieg, who has done work on animated films about Green Lantern and the Justice League in various efforts, and directed by Matt Peters, who did artwork for severa...Read the entire review More...

  5. RBGWed, 29 Aug 2018 14:31:21 PDT
    Highly Recommended The Movie:RBG begins with an audio montage of a horde of hard-right conservative commentators talking about a woman who, in their minds, is un-American and is on her way to destroy the nation. This montage is played over statues of founding fathers and other American monuments founds across Washington DC. The woman they're so scornful and afraid of is a tiny little octogenarian with a kind and quiet voice, yet a force to be reckoned with when it comes to fighting for equal rights of all Americans. Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's life is a stirring and powerful reminder that progress for the marginalized takes tenacity and an inexhaustible fighting spirit. That's why this pre-credits opening is perfect: There will always be those fighting tooth and nail to crush progress, but the promise of the American system allows those without power to fight back. Just don't expec...Read the entire review More...
  6. We're Still Here: Johnny Cash's Bitter Tears RevisitedWed, 22 Aug 2018 10:24:58 PDT
    Recommended The Movie:Antonino D'Ambrosio's 2015 documentary We're Still Here: Johnny Cash's Bitter Tears Revisited takes a look at two related subjects. The first is the history and cultural importance of Johnny Cash's 1964 album Bitter Tears: Ballads Of The American Indian and the second a 2014 effort to re-record the album with a host of current and classic country artists filling in where Cash, who passed away in 2003, could not. D'Ambrosio also wrote the book 2009 book, A Heartbeat and a Guitar: Johnny Cash and the Making of Bitter Tears, which was clearly the inspiration for the documentary, so he knows the subject quite intimately.Let's start with the album. Bitter Tears, for those who haven't heard it, was inspired by the Civil Rights movement that was gripping America at the time. Cash, who believed he had some Cherokee heritage, saw a lot of parallels to t...Read the entire review More...
  7. Hamlet (Royal Exchange Theater; 2015)Tue, 21 Aug 2018 05:02:38 PDT
    Rent It The Film: For quite a while now, the classic plays of William Shakespeare have been tweaked to modernize the setting or reflect current social changes, and the consistency of those alternate versions naturally make it more difficult to do so in subtle ways that haven't been done before. Therefore, to strike those kinds of chords in the current climate, changes to Shakespeare's source material tend to be more dramatic and bolder in how they reshape the world and context in which they're taking place. Manchester's Royal Exchange Theater have been intrepid in their efforts to retain the essence of Shakespeare's prose while also reimagining characters as other genders, but not quite to the degree of their recent production of Hamlet, in which they...Read the entire review More...
  8. CMA Awards LIVEMon, 13 Aug 2018 08:05:38 PDT
    Rent It Country music, much like any genre of music is bound to evolve as the years go on and new artist emerge to add their own flavor and make their mark on the world. Time Life's latest release, a massive nine DVD set covering the CMA Awards from 1968-2015 is a remarkable collection of live performances at the industry's biggest awards show and in the process, provides a fascinating timeline of the evolution of country music (at least from the 60s on). Running a little over 11-hours, the "CMA Awards Live" release is far from a comprehensive look at each year's hot acts and performers. Across the nine DVDs, a smattering of performances are included along with the occasional acceptance speech and then oddly enough, the ending credits for that year's awards ceremony. However, despite the 1968-2015 moniker in the title, not every year's awards are highlighted and as I'll mention later, oddly, some bigger...Read the entire review More...
  9. Ismael's GhostsTue, 07 Aug 2018 05:53:51 PDT
    Rent It Director: Arnaud DesplechinStarring: Mathieu Amalric, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marion CotillardYear: 2017The films of French director Arnaud Desplechin are tied together in ways I can't comprehend; there's a scene in this movie in which a filmmaker who is losing control is seen to have an attic filled with pictures and strings and connections and models, basically the artistic headspace of a mad genius, and I imagine Desplechin working in the same way. You have to be a little mad to be so talented, it's like true vision and manic production lie under a contaminated surface that artists must choose to reach through if they want to become famous. Anyway, Desplechin sees things and plots and metaphors that we don't, and he captu...Read the entire review More...
  10. Sid Caesar: The WorksMon, 06 Aug 2018 01:20:31 PDT
    DVD Talk Collector Series The name Sid Caesar didn't carry a lot of weight for my generation, growing up in the 1970s. Caesar turned up frequently as a guest star on lesser variety shows like Tony Orlando and Dawn and the infamous Pink Lady (and Jeff), doing what at the time seemed like awfully anachronistic, out-of-step-with-the-times sketch comedy. He'd turn up in movies likeAirport 1975, Grease and the telefilm The Munsters' Revenge, doing comedy relief that wasn't very relieving. (He's almost creepy as the sweaty, nervous passenger annoying Myrna Loy in the Airport film.) And yet when It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World premiered on network television around that time, Caesar shined as the most fascinating of the dozens of Big League comedians in that gargantuan comedy, playing a calm, cool, and reasonable man who, over the course of the story, becomes as manically obsessed as a heroin ...Read the entire review More...
