That's why you cast great, high-profile actors like this trio, even if they are filling small roles. You know what you are getting with them and what you're getting are quality performances that will raise the overall quality of the film they are in. That's the case when it comes to Oliver Thompson's feature debut, Welcome to Happiness. Bu...Read the entire review More...
  2. MokaWed, 15 Nov 2017 12:25:53 PST
    Recommended Director: Frederic MermoudStarring: Emmanuelle Devos, Nathalie Baye, Diane RouxelYear: 2016The understated French drama of the year is Moka, a revenge tale without the revenge. This is a style that we see every season, the quiet, heavy, high-character, low-action, French film that critics are supposed to eat up and convince audiences that they should like too. And sometimes it works, sometimes we relate to you that a foreign film of this genre is exactly that, weighty but wonderful. Moka, I'm afraid, doesn't fall into that category. It is dramatic, yes, it is familiar, which isn't always unwelcome, but it lacks the punch needed to make up for the slow speed of its story. Basically, this film is an average ...Read the entire review More...
  3. Glory (2016) aka SlavaMon, 13 Nov 2017 06:57:05 PST
    Rent It Tzanko Petrov (Stefan Denolyubov) lives quietly and simply. He has a rabbit, which he is devoted to caring for. He lives in a small one-room apartment, rarely seems to eat, and sets his watch, a gift from his father to him, by calling the operator for the time. During the day, he walks the train tracks looking for loose bolts, and tries to overlook his fellow employees siphoning gas out of train cars, to be sold illegally. One day, Tzanko finds something wholly unexpected on his route along the tracks: a bag of money, lying on the tracks. Tzanko, a man of honor, turns the money into the transit authority, which provides an opportunity for Julia Staykova (Margita Gosheva), the transit PR director, to generate not just some good special interest press for the railway company, but also political points for the local minister.There is no reason for Julia to treat Tzanko disrespectfully, nor for Tzanko's...Read the entire review More...
  4. PAW Patrol: The Great Snow RescueWed, 08 Nov 2017 09:11:13 PST
    Recommended PAW Patrol continues to be one of Nick Jr.'s most popular franchises; now four seasons deep, a fifth has been ordered and merchandise is still selling like hotcakes. The Great Snow Rescue is the tenth themed collection of PAW Patrol episodes on disc; it doesn't really change anything about the show's formula or characters, and doesn't have to. Most episodes go like this: the six PAW Patrol canines (klutzy firefighter Marshall, aquatic expert Zuma, cons...Read the entire review More...
  5. Porky PigWed, 01 Nov 2017 06:14:41 PDT
    DVD Talk Collector Series Growing up in suburban Detroit, I was raised on a steady diet of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies featuring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig. However, the package of cartoon shorts syndicated to WKBD-TV, Channel 50 in Detroit consisted mainly of middle-period "Golden Age" Warner Bros. cartoons from the 1950s. More or less these were the same cartoons that also turned up on "The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour" (among other titles), airing on CBS Saturday mornings. The most famous Warner cartoons, shorts like What's Opera, Doc?, One Froggy Evening, Duck Amuck, etc. were part of these packages. So popular were these that around the late 1970s another package of syndicated Warner Bros. cartoon shorts turned up, these from the earlier "Golden Age" era of roughly 1944-1948, but this package wasn't around very long, at least not in the Detroit market. Also, CBS for a time began airin...Read the entire review More...
  6. A Very Brady ChristmasMon, 30 Oct 2017 14:35:25 PDT
    Recommended Although the Brady Bunch had previously been exhumed from the cancellation graveyard with the infamous 1976-77 "Brady Bunch Hour" and short-lived "Brady Brides" in 1981, by 1988 America was nostalgic enough for the lovely lady, man named Brady and their three very lovely girls and three boys that a reunion this time would really be appreciated, and what better time to do it than Christmas? "A Very Brady Christmas" brought the group that somehow formed a family head-on into the 1980s and ended up as the year's highest-rated network broadcast, paving the way for one last attempt at a new series "The Bradys" in 1990 which still didn't go anywhere and was canned after just five episodes. This "TV movie event...Read the entire review More...

  8. Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Complete SeriesThu, 26 Oct 2017 08:40:15 PDT
    Highly Recommended The Show:In today's installment of you are old, did you know that the then-UPN show Buffy the Vampire Slayer quietly celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. Yes, it's 20 years old. Inspired by the 1992 film, the show was received with initial adoration and better than expected critical praise, and exploded into a show that helped dwarf its cinematic older sister with humor and romance sort of in the same vein as the film, but bringing larger themes and conflicts for its characters into larger light, one or two of them being notable historically. With this time marker being ticked off, it was only a matter of time before it was celebrated somehow, and it has been with the usual retrospective ephemera; some books, some occasional ensemble reunions (usually partial), and a boxed set of the show was recently released o...Read the entire review More...
  9. The Best of the Carol Burnett ShowSun, 22 Oct 2017 07:37:12 PDT
    Recommended How things have changed for the Carol Burnett Show on DVD- as the format gained traction, many longed for at least some of it to be released on DVD but all that came early on was a short reunion special with a paltry number of clips and a similar disc after that. A few years after that though, mail-order outfit Guthy Renker started putting out DVDs (and VHS tapes) of complete shows, then Time-Life acquired the rights and put out a staggering number of releases from single discs to mega box sets. As that company tends to do, a number of the individual discs have been included in multiple sets, ...Read the entire review More...
  10. Bob Hope: Salutes the TroopsFri, 20 Oct 2017 08:38:57 PDT
    Recommended Time-Life brings us another collection of Bob Hope specials where he and a number of guests visit the military overseas to brighten their time there during the days surrounding Christmas. A number of these have been released on DVD before from R2 Entertainment and Time-Life has been packaging their discs in a number of different configurations- judging from the menus on the three discs in this set they appear to have been originally made for larger sets. Hopefully I'll be able to outline the contents here for those seeking out these shows but not wanting to pick up redundant material.The six shows here range from 1962 to 1990, all done during the week of Christmas and shown on NBC that January as belated "Christmas Specials" but still managing to be amongst the year's h...Read the entire review More...
