The lazy, womanizing Ikta Solork is about as far from a soldier as you can get. But with the Katjvarna Empire now at war, he’s off to join the army in search of a cushy job. As luck would have it, his natural wit and a sudden encounter with a princess burdens him with a responsibility he never asked for—a commanding position in the war!

Between double-crossers, incompetent superiors, and the religious laws that control their spirit companions, victory won’t be easy. Fortunately, he’s got the strongest double-bladed fighter, Yatori, at his back, and three good friends who are as talented as they are loyal. With their skills and his infallible strategy, Ikta can do what only he does best—save the day in the laziest possible way.

To plan the dangerous rescue, the two soldiers communicate by secret code.

A cult classic for fancy lads everywhere, Cabin Boy was met with a frothy blend of confusion and hostility upon first release, but has aged like a fine flagon of wine. From Chris Elliott and Adam Resnick, co-creators of the influential deconstructed sitcom Get a Life, Cabin Boy is one of the most surreal comedies ever released by a major Hollywood studio. 

After graduating from finishing school as a well-bred "Fancy Lad," Nathanial Mayweather (Chris Elliott, There's Something About Mary) prepares for a trip to Hawaii. But his plans are dashed when he mistakenly boards The Filthy Whore, a fishing boat manned by a ragtag crew of salty shipmates, and soon becomes the vessel's hapless Cabin Boy. On his journey, he woos the feisty but beautiful Trina (Melora Walters, Magnolia) and encounters a host of eye-rubbing curiosities including an amiable shark man, a savage ice monster, a tobacco-chewing cupcake, and a six-armed seductress (Ann Magnuson, Love at Large) who relieves Nathanial of his virginity, much to the displeasure of her 30-foot salesman husband (Mike Starr, Dumb and Dumber). 

Inspired by classic seafaring yarns like Captains Courageous, Cabin Boy has grown in reputation over the years as a truly offbeat cult comedy-fantasy with Ray Harryhausen-like special effects, a hilariously oddball performance by Elliott, and a treasure chest of eccentric supporting players including Brian Doyle-Murray, Brion James, James Gammon, Andy Richter and Russ Tamblyn, plus a seminal cameo by Elliott and Resnick's old boss David Letterman as an antagonistic sock-monkey vendor.

Based on Ray Bradbury's classic sci-fi novel of the same name, the thought-provoking parable depicts a frighteningly plausible future where media is an opiate, history is purged and dissent is outlawed. The dystopian thriller centers on Montag (Jordan), a young fireman who forsakes his world and struggles to regain his humanity as he battles his mentor, fire captain Beatty (Shannon).

Cult director Teruo Ishii (Shogun's Joy of Torture, Blind Woman s Curse) presents a nightmarish, hallucinogenic tale drawn from the fevered imagination of Japan s celebrated pioneer ofero-guro ( erotic grotesque ) literature, Edogawa Rampo.

Medical student Hirosuke Hitomi slips out of the asylum in which he has been wrongfully confined and stealthily assumes the identity of a recently deceased nobleman with whom he bears an uncanny resemblance. Hirosuke eases his way into the nobleman s household and his dead double s marital bed. But as long-repressed memories begin to bubble to the surface, he soon finds himself drawn to a remote isle where he is confronted by a mad scientist and his malformed men, and discovers the key that will unlock some long-suppressed mysteries of his own.

A dark labyrinth of the monstrous and perverse that fuses mystery and horror while incorporating motifs from a myriad of Rampo's tales, Horrors of Malformed Men boasts astonishing carnivalesque art design and haunting performances. Withdrawn from cinemas by its own studio after its original scandalous release nearly fifty years ago, the film is among the very best screen interpretations of the author s macabre brand of horror-fantasy fiction, and a unique oddity of Japanese cult cinema.

From Spanish-born filmmaker J.A. Bayona, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a serviceable and amusing-enough sequel, delivering an unexpectedly bland story that's tolerably fun. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return for another disastrous adventure through science run amok, littered with lovely screensaver images that ultimately fall flat. The dinos wreak havoc on Blu-ray with an outstanding, reference-quality DTS:X audio and 1080p video presentation that's sure to unleash chaos to home theaters. With a small but decently informative assortment of supplements, the overall package is Recommended for fans of the franchise who are not planning to make the jump to 4K any time soon.

[review_movie] =>

Early into Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the direct follow-up to Colin Trevorrow's 2015 box-office juggernaut, Jeff Goldblum makes an appearance reprising his role as chaos theorist Dr. Ian Malcolm from Steven Spielberg's original and now-classic Jurassic Park. Testifying before a Senate hearing on whether the dinosaurs from the previous movie should be saved from an impending volcanic eruption, the mathematician suggests allowing the cloned animals to once again go extinct. He reasons humanity has done enough damage to the natural order of things and rescuing the animals will only lead to more harm. Of course, this being a franchise specifically about engineered dinosaurs and human interference, someone is bound not to heed the doctor's logical warning. And in a cinematic universe where characters are fully aware of the devastation and fatalities caused in the previous films, it's admittedly interesting, if also somewhat entertaining, to watch those characters ignore history and think they can avoid repeating the same mistakes. 

The man leading the rescue mission from the bed-ridden comfort of his massively luxuriant estate is Sir Benjamin Lockwood (an underused James Cromwell), John Hammond's former business partner. Naturally, he hires Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt) to return to the island they narrowly escaped a few years earlier because they possess a particular set of skills necessary for this ambitious operation — along with also thwarting the obvious evil plans introduced in the second act. Derek Connolly and Trevorrow's script reunites the two stars for this sequel in the most contrived manner that feels largely like a repeat of their first meeting. Claire is tasked by a superior to essentially fetch Owen, who is now building a cabin instead of working on his motorcycle. (You know, typical manly stuff.) Part of the fun in the first movie was the chemistry-driven banter of Howard and Pratt, which continues here for the most part, but it's not quite as amusing or comedic. As romantic leads, their charm feels shallow, and their predictable reunion is out of convenience. 

Perhaps, it has something to do with both characters being preoccupied with more pressing issues, such as the seasoned, trophy-collecting mercenary Ken Wheatley (Ted Levine) gathering the animals for more nefarious reasons. Or in the case of Owen, Pratt is distracted with practicing his manly glare, staring at others fixedly as though looking off into the distance. Whatever the case may be, the plot tries to ratchet the suspense and urgency as though the race against a massive volcano eruption were not enough. Now, our would-be heroes have to combat corporate greed, turning this production into a blend of The Lost World and Jurassic Park III. The protagonists are deceived into returning to the island, and the dinosaurs are again brought to California where they expectedly wreak havoc. Ironically, the merger plays out much better in this movie than in those aforementioned two, but Lockwood's granddaughter Maisie (Isabella Sermon) and Eli Mills (Rafe Spall) have much to do with that, providing some well-earned dramatic tension going into the film's second half. 

These few positives, however, are not exactly meant to suggest Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a great film, but rather, it's a serviceable follow-up that's on par with its predecessor. Director J.A. Bayona does well behind the camera, balancing the comedy with the action — of which there is plenty of, to be sure — and turning an unexpectedly bland story into tolerably fun, something that's better than the sequels of the original trilogy and a good addition to the overall franchise. Unfortunately, such soft, middling praise comes with some reservations, seeing as how the massive production comes from the same filmmaker as The Orphanage and A Monster Calls. Working with long-time collaborator and cinematographer Óscar Faura, Bayona seems so committed on delivering stunning visuals that he forgot to make a suspenseful movie or do something worthwhile with the overarching theme, littering the screen with lovely screensaver images that ultimately fall flat and supplying stunning, ear-deafening eye-candy that fails to captivate.

Vital Disc Stats: The Blu-ray

Universal Studios Home Entertainment brings Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to Blu-ray as a two-disc combo pack with a code for a Digital Copy. The Region Free, BD50 disc sits comfortably opposite a DVD-9, and both come inside a blue, eco-elite case with a shiny, glossy slipcover. After several skippable trailers, viewers are taken to a static menu with music.

The endangered dinos wreak havoc on Blu-ray with a stunningly gorgeous 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode, turning the arguably bland story, at least, into entertaining eye candy. Shot entirely on the Arri Alexa 65 digital camera system, the freshly-minted transfer is endlessly razor-sharp and near flawless, revealing every pore, wrinkle, and blemish in the face of the cast, especially during close-ups. Each blade of grass and leaf is distinct from a distance, and viewers can make out the rough, ragged bark of the trees while the tiniest imperfection and piece of wreckage of the dilapidated park is plainly visible. The stitching and threading in the clothing, the thick nylon belts and the canvas covering of the trucks are very well-defined, even during the fast-paced action. In fact, little fragments of debris and rubble remain discrete and striking at all times, especially during the volcanic eruption, and the seamless mix of CGI and animatronics is extraordinarily impressive, showing every fine line, fold, and furrow on the jagged, scarred bodies of the creatures. 

Faithful to the stylized cinematography of Óscar Faura, the presentation also boasts spot-on contrast with brilliant, pitch-perfect whites, giving the many screensaver moments a spectacular picturesque quality. Exterior scenes on the island are littered with beautiful scenic views where the individual creases of fluffy clouds are exposed and the sunshine glows with warmth. Brightness levels could arguably be a tad stronger, most notably in those aforementioned daylight sequences. However, on the whole, blacks are inky rich and luxurious, particularly during the more poorly-lit sequences where dark, stygian shadows penetrate deep into the screen while maintaining exceptional visibility of background details, providing the 2.39:1 image with a three-dimensional feel and a lovely cinematic appeal. The video is also awash in lush, sumptuous primaries, such as the vibrant, lively greens of the surrounding foliage, while secondary hues are varied and animated, like the spirited fiery oranges of the lava and the natural, lifelike facial complexions. (Video Rating: 96/100)

[review_audio] =>

Dinosaurs stampede home theaters with a monstrously sensational, reference-quality DTS:X soundtrack that almost immediately — and quite literally — submerges viewers into this fantasy adventure world. Within the first few minutes, whether we're searching the underwater depths of the aquatic park or on land hacking the computer system, the room is filled with the sloshing and swashing noise of the small submarine all around or heavy rain droplets falling directly above the listening area. Later, when walking through the jungle park, the chirping of birds, the rustling of leaves in trees or the roaring echo from a dino flawlessly pan through the overheads and surrounds. In the final, climactic quarter, the movie really comes to life with various effects discretely traveling across the ceiling or circling from one side of the room to the other. Quieter, more dialogue-driven moments may not be quite as aggressive, but they nonetheless come with various subtle atmospherics that terrifically maintains an effective and highly satisfying hemispheric soundfield. 

Keeping things awesomely engaging, many of those same ambient effects layer the visuals with plenty of background activity that fluidly move between the three front channels and to the top heights, generating a splendidly broad and spacious half-dome soundstage. The design delivers distinct clarity and superb definition in the mid-range, even during the loudest, ear-deafening moments, making every bone-crushing bite pop and snap with extraordinary detail. Again, the final climactic quarter is a fantastic demo-worthy moment where every scream, wail and thunderous roar is distinctly heard above the chaos without a hint of distortion while the dialogue remains intelligible throughout. Michael Giacchino's score exhibits a great deal of warmth and fidelity with excellent separation and definition in every note and between each instrument while lightly bleeding to the front overheads. Although not quite as aggressive or impressive as its predecessor, the low-end is nonetheless commanding with tremendous palpability and weight in the action and in every dino stomp, occasionally hitting as low 20Hz in a few spots (bass chart).

That TV commercial actress is so seductive she could sell you anything. She’s only a computer-generated illusion. What about the real beauty who was the computer’s model? Sorry, you can’t meet her: She and others like her have been murdered.

Writer/director Michael Crichton (ER, Coma) reaches into his brain-teasing bag of tricks for a mesmerizing thriller full of unfriendly persuasion generated by high-tech trickery. Albert Finney stars as a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon whose supermodel clients start dying mysteriously. Susan Dey plays his latest patient, also now in peril. And James Coburn is the head of a research facility which has developed a subtly hypnotic way to sell things. Take a good look at sleek, chic, scary Looker. There’s a lot more than meets the eye.

Carole Lombard and William Powell dazzle in this definitive screwball comedy, directed by Gregory La Cava—a potent cocktail of romantic repartee and Depression-era social critique. Irene (Lombard), an eccentric Manhattan socialite, wins a society-ball scavenger hunt after finding one of the “items” on the list, a “lost man” (Powell), at a dump. She gives the man she believes to be a down-and-out drifter work as the family butler, and soon falls head over heels in love. Her attempts to both woo Godfrey and indoctrinate him in the dysfunctional ways of the household make for an unbeatable series of madcap hijinks. La Cava’s deft film was the first to garner Oscar nominations in all four acting categories, and it is one of Hollywood’s greatest commentaries on class and the social unrest of its time.

They called him Papillon, meaning butterfly. If only he had wings to go with the name. Unable to fly, Henri Charriere virtually willed himself free. He persisted until he did the impossible: escape Devil’s Island. Based on Charriere’s bestseller and shot in Spain and Jamaica, Franklin J. Schaffner’s film of Papillon united two stars at key career junctures. After a decade of fine work in The Great Escape, The Sand Pebbles and Bullitt, Steve McQueen found in Charriere another ideal tough-guy role. Coming off The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy and Little Big Man, Dustin Hoffman again distinguished himself as Dega, Charriere’s scruffy friend.

Winner of 4 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and based on the first-hand experience of Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, Platoon is powerful, intense and starkly brutal. "Harrowingly realistic and completely convincing" (Leonard Maltin), it is "a dark, unforgettable memorial" (The Washington Post) to every soldier whose innocence was lost in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam. Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen) is a young, naive American who, upon his arrival in Vietnam, quickly discovers that he must do battle not only with the Viet Cong, but also with the gnawing fear, physical exhaustion and intense anger growing within him. While his two commanding officers (Oscar-nominated Tom Berenger and Willem Dafoe) draw a fine line between the war they wage against the enemy and the one they fight with each other, the conflict, chaos and hatred permeate Taylor, suffocating his realities and numbing his feelings to man's highest value: life.

However, Tanya is as stubborn and coldhearted as she was in her former life. Furthermore, her goals remain the same—find a way to retire to a cushy life. Instead, she constantly finds herself being tested on the front lines of the most hostile situations because Being X is determined to win her over, at any cost. Both parties are equally stubborn, and could it be that both are equally evil?

Keanu Reeves delivers the action in this thriller packed with pulse-pounding suspense. In Russia to sell rare jewels to a businessman with underworld connections, U.S. diamond merchant Lucas Hill (Reeves) falls into a torrid affair with Katya (Ana Ularu), a local café owner. When the deal suddenly goes south, Lucas and Katya are caught in a deadly crossfire between the buyer and Russian agents, as Lucas takes up arms in a furious fight to save Katya and himself.

[review_introduction] =>

Keanu Reeves bides his time between John Wick films in Siberia as a diamond dealer up against some bad folks intent on upending his deal. Despite all the elements of a great thriller in play, the film is oddly flat and stilted with only a few characters ever coming to life and plot entanglements repeatedly put on hold for some gratuitous T&A. A sense of urgency would have made this film something worth the time instead of just passing it. Lionsgate brings Siberia to Blu-ray in fine order with a solid A/V presentation ankled by a lackluster bonus feature package. Unless you're in need of some Reeves, you can Skip It. 

[review_movie] =>

Part of what I love about location-based thrillers is that they showcase a part of the world that most folks will never experience. The hero is a fish-out-of-water who doesn't have the lay of the land surrounded by strange people and customs without a command of the language. They're isolated and alone in a dangerous situation that just adds more tension to an already tense situation. If director Matthew Ross' Siberia had played with that idea a little more, it could have helped give the film some narrative thrust. Instead, we watch Keanu Reeves roll in full autopilot through this unfortunately flat and timid thriller as a diamond dealer who has angered the wrong people -- but still has time to make it with a beautiful local gal.

The diamond world is cutthroat. It's competitive, expensive, and dangerous enough that if you screw the wrong people you may end up dead in a ditch. Veteran diamond dealer Lucas Hill (Keanu Reeves) knows this full well as he travels to Russia to close a lucrative deal for some rare blue diamonds. His buyer Boris Volkov (Pasha D. Lunchnikoff) is more than a little miffed that the deal is taking so long. The problem is Lucas' middleman Pyotr has gone missing with the sample diamond and is the only man who knows where the loot is. Traveling to a remote Siberian town, Lucas hopes to locate his partner but instead finds a beautiful local café owner named Christa (Ashley St. George). Lucas finds himself against the ropes and in increasing danger as more men arrive searching for the diamonds he doesn't have.

Siberia

On paper, Siberia should work. It's got a dangerous McGuffin with the diamonds. A mission to find Pyotr who has the diamonds. The beautiful femme fatal Christa who may have her own ulterior motives. And there is a whole heap of bad guys who want what Lucas has to offer. Caught up in this plot web is a guy who just wants to close the deal but things increasingly go from bad to much, much worse. After a great opening few moments, the film hits the breaks hard and never recovers. 

My biggest issue (of many) with the film is that Reeves' Lucas Hill is a little too in his element. Traveling to Russia, he should be an alien, someone firmly outside of his comfort zone, but instead it's business as usual. He has a firm command of the language making menacing conversations from Russian bad dudes not all that menacing. Then the film makes the fatal mistake as the search for Pyotr and the blue diamonds gets trunked to a dead stop when Lucas starts romancing Christa. It's not a surprise, but a fleeting fling turns repetitive with frequent trips to the bedroom and virtually kills any and all tension as the film aims to switch gears from a thriller to a tragic romance that doesn't resonate. 

All the time I was watching Siberia I kept thinking of Frantic and how well executed that film was. It's a similar enough story with the main character in possession of something some bad people want who happens to also meet a beautiful and willing young woman to help him out of his jam. Frantic worked because Roman Polanski knew well enough to hold things back and keep the film focused. It didn't let itself get bogged down. It kept its focus on the destination and the danger. In contrast, Siberia almost felt bored with itself and so it decided to get tacky and play up the T&A to the point that it did more harm than good. If the movie is bored with itself you can't expect the audience to care.

Vital Disc Stats: The Blu-ray

Siberia slips and slides onto Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films in a single disc Blu-ray + Digital set. The film is pressed onto a Region A BD-50 disc and comes packed in an eco-friendly case with identical slipcover artwork. The disc loads to trailers for upcoming releases before arriving at a static image main menu with traditional navigation options.

Siberia

While Siberia may not be an interesting movie, it does offer up some impressive visuals to feed its 2.39:1 1080p transfer. Shot in Canada to double for the deep Russian tundra, the film enjoys some beautiful scenic locations while displaying a pleasing range of color, contrast, and black levels. Details are appropriately robust allowing you to appreciate facial features, clothing, as well as the film's production design work. Colors are slightly on the yellow drab side at times, but there is plenty of natural lighting to give the image a good range of primaries. Whites are especially vibrant with a stable presence without blooming. Black levels are on point dipping to some nice and inky tones giving the image a great sense of depth. All around this is an impressive looking image. 

[review_audio] =>

Siberia

Packed with a DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix, Siberia really only makes tangential usage of its surrounds. Most of the film plays fairly front and center with only a few bursts of notable surround activity. There is a nice sense of atmosphere to the mix, but there really isn't a whole lot in terms of dynamic sound effects to pull your attention in one direction or the other. Dialogue is clean and clear throughout and the film's score helps round out the mix and maintain the sense of mood. It gets through the basics and that's about it. 

[review_supplements] =>

Siberia

Like most of these dash off releases, Siberia doesn't pack much of a bonus feature package. The film's lone bonus is more or less an EPK talking head segment that's better suited as a YouTube promotional bit than a genuine piece of bonus content.

Siberia

Taken as a whole, Siberia is simply a missed opportunity. The film could have been something of a solid pulp thriller, but the finished product is sadly void of thrills as it loads itself with misplaced dramatics. Reeves and St. George are an attractive onscreen pair, but the eye candy is hardly enough to sustain interest. Lionsgate Films delivers a technically solid release for Siberia with a pleasing A/V presentation. Bonus features are forgettably unimportant. There are better Keanu Reeves fronted thrillers out there so you're safe from making an effort here. Probably best you Skip It

Shortly before his passing at the age of 86, influential gardener and horticulturalist Frank Cabot recounted his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his twenty-acre English style garden and summer estate that was opened to a film crew for the first time ever in 2009. Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Charlevoix County in Quebec, Les Quatre Vents has become one of the world s foremost private gardens. Created over 75 years and three generations, it is an enchanted place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century. Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man's personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to one of the greatest gardens in the world.

Having been at the forefront of America s here-and-now with Easy Rider and the counterculture movies of Roger Corman, Peter Fonda retreated to the past and the American West for his directorial debut, The Hired Hand.

Fonda plays Harry, a man who deserted his wife and child to explore the wide-open plains with his best friend Archie (Warren Oates). Tired of the life , he decides to finally return home in order to rekindle his marriage and reacquaint himself with his daughter.

Scripted by Alan Sharp (Ulzana s Raid, Night Moves), shot by Vilmos Zsigmond (Blow Out, The Long Goodbye) and with a standout score by folk musician Bruce Langhorne, The Hired Hand is a beautiful, elegiac picture that ranks alongside The Outlaw Josey Wales and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid as one of the finest Westerns the seventies had to offer.

The legendary John Ford directs screenwriter Frank S. Nugent’s adaptation of Edwin O’Connor’s novel, the barn-burning political film/character study, The Last Hurrah (1958). The singular Spencer Tracy stars as an old-school Irish-American pol, mayor of “a New England City” that just might be Boston; as he faces a potentially rough fifth campaign, he is observed by his journalist nephew (Jeffrey Hunter), fighting charges of graft and abuse of power even as he is assisted and/or opposed by a gallery of colorful characters. The extraordinary supporting cast includes Pat O’Brien, Basil Rathbone, Donald Crisp, James Gleason, Ricardo Cortez, et al; the film was gloriously shot by Charles Lawton, Jr. (The Lady from Shanghai).

The Looming Tower traces the rising threat of Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda in the late 1990s and how at the time, the FBI and the CIA may have inadvertently set the path for the tragedy of 9/11. The series follows members of the I-49 Squad in New York and Alec Station in Washington D.C., the counter terrorism divisions of the FBI and CIA, respectively, as they travel the world fighting for ownership of information while seemingly working toward the same goal – trying to prevent an imminent terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
 
Jeff Daniels stars as I-49 Squad chief John O’Neill who faces a deliberate lack of cooperation from other intelligence organizations within the federal government, after he’s convinced the United States has been targeted for an attack by Al-Qaeda. His counterpart within the CIA, the frequently antagonistic Martin Schmidt (Peter Sarsgaard), assumes the CIA is the only government agency equipped to battle potential terror threats from abroad. He disobeys presidential orders and purposely keeps information from the FBI. Although the goal of both organizations is the same, preventing a terrorist attack from happening in the U.S., the competitive nature between the two agencies and their inability to work with one another, may have given Al-Qaeda operatives in the U.S. the opportunity to put their devastating plan in motion.

We meet; Mack, Emily, Casey, Sam, Carter, Marty, Dick, and Lydia as they have just graduated High School in 1989. Mack (the smart good looking kid from the other side of the tracks) and his high school sweetheart Emily (the smart good looking kid from the right side of the tracks) throw a party at Emily’s parent’s house. At the end of the night one of their friends is killed in a car accident leaving the party. We are then re-introduced to this circle of friend’s decades later in the fog of midlife as they prepare to come together for a reunion party hosted by the now married Mack and Emily. At the party, the blanks that existed from 1989 to today are filled in. The friends begin to see each other for who they really are and not for what they once thought they were. As the party winds down, this snapshot of time presents an opportunity to reflect with nostalgia upon where we they’ve been and where they might go from here. In the end, Mack’s fate is somewhat unclear as he slips beneath the water line (literally and metaphorically).

Directed by Charles Jarrott (Anne of the Thousand Days), The Other Side of Midnight (1977) is a spectacularly epic adaptation of Sidney Sheldon’s melodrama focusing on the rise of a French shopgirl, Noelle (the great Marie-France Pisier). After a torrid World War II-era love affair with an American pilot, Larry (John Beck), leaves her abandoned and pregnant, Noelle vows revenge – which includes becoming a fashion model, an international movie star, and the mistress of a staggeringly wealthy Greek tycoon (Raf Vallone). Susan Sarandon co-stars as Larry’s perky post-war wife, and Clu Gulager is thankfully around, too. Appropriately fabulous score by Michel Legrand, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

The Pink Panther is a heroic, moral cartoon cat with pink fur and the manners of an English aristocrat. He only becomes flustered or angry at obtuse or offensive humans who try to disrupt his existence, or at troublesome gadgets, rodents, or insects. In most of his cartoons, he stumbles into a difficult situation and stoically endeavors to make the best of it. Episodes of this series feature three theatrical cartoons, two with the Pink Panther, and one featuring the Inspector, a cartoon version of the accident-prone, bumbling French detective, Inspector Clouseau, played in movies by Peter Sellers. The Inspector is often assisted by a Spanish gendarme, Sergeant Deux-Deux, and together they fallibly battle villains of all shapes and sizes in various parts of the world, always on the orders of the long-suffering Surete Commissioner.

Throughout the late 1960s and into the 70s, the Italian giallo movement transported viewers to the far corners of the globe, from swinging San Francisco to the Soviet-occupied Prague. Only one, however, brought the genre s unique brand of bloody mayhem as far as Australia: director Flavio Mogherini (Delitto passionale) s tragic and poetic The Pyjama Girl Case.

The body of a young woman is found on the beach, shot in the head, burned to hide her identity and dressed in distinctive yellow pyjamas. With the Sydney police stumped, former Inspector Timpson (Ray Milland, Dial M for Murder) comes out of retirement to crack the case. Treading where the real detectives can t, Timpson doggedly pieces together the sad story of Dutch immigrant Glenda Blythe (Dalila Di Lazzaro, Phenomena) and the unhappy chain of events which led to her grisly demise.

Inspired by the real-life case which baffled the Australian police and continues to spark controversy and unanswered questions to this day, The Pyjama Girl Case is a uniquely haunting latter-day giallo from the tail end of the genre s boom period, co-starring Michele Placido (director of Romanzo Criminale) and Howard Ross (The New York Ripper), and featuring a memorably melancholic score by veteran composer Riz Ortolani (Don t Torture a Duckling).

As luck would have it, his natural wit and a sudden encounter with a princess burdens him with a responsibility he never asked for—a commanding position in the war!

A cult classic for fancy lads everywhere, Cabin Boy was met with a frothy blend of confusion and hostility upon first release, but has aged like a fine flagon of wine. From Chris Elliott and Adam Resnick, co-creators of the influential deconstructed sitcom Get a Life, Cabin Boy is one of the most surreal comedies ever released by a major Hollywood studio. 

After graduating from finishing school as a well-bred "Fancy Lad," Nathanial Mayweather (Chris Elliott, There's Something About Mary) prepares for a trip to Hawaii. But his plans are dashed when he mistakenly boards The Filthy Whore, a fishing boat manned by a ragtag crew of salty shipmates, and soon becomes the vessel's hapless Cabin Boy. On his journey, he woos the feisty but beautiful Trina (Melora Walters, Magnolia) and encounters a host of eye-rubbing curiosities including an amiable shark man, a savage ice monster, a tobacco-chewing cupcake, and a six-armed seductress (Ann Magnuson, Love at Large) who relieves Nathanial of his virginity, much to the displeasure of her 30-foot salesman husband (Mike Starr, Dumb and Dumber). 

Inspired by classic seafaring yarns like Captains Courageous, Cabin Boy has grown in reputation over the years as a truly offbeat cult comedy-fantasy with Ray Harryhausen-like special effects, a hilariously oddball performance by Elliott, and a treasure chest of eccentric supporting players including Brian Doyle-Murray, Brion James, James Gammon, Andy Richter and Russ Tamblyn, plus a seminal cameo by Elliott and Resnick's old boss David Letterman as an antagonistic sock-monkey vendor.

Based on Ray Bradbury's classic sci-fi novel of the same name, the thought-provoking parable depicts a frighteningly plausible future where media is an opiate, history is purged and dissent is outlawed. The dystopian thriller centers on Montag (Jordan), a young fireman who forsakes his world and struggles to regain his humanity as he battles his mentor, fire captain Beatty (Shannon).

Cult director Teruo Ishii (Shogun's Joy of Torture, Blind Woman s Curse) presents a nightmarish, hallucinogenic tale drawn from the fevered imagination of Japan s celebrated pioneer ofero-guro ( erotic grotesque ) literature, Edogawa Rampo.

Medical student Hirosuke Hitomi slips out of the asylum in which he has been wrongfully confined and stealthily assumes the identity of a recently deceased nobleman with whom he bears an uncanny resemblance. Hirosuke eases his way into the nobleman s household and his dead double s marital bed. But as long-repressed memories begin to bubble to the surface, he soon finds himself drawn to a remote isle where he is confronted by a mad scientist and his malformed men, and discovers the key that will unlock some long-suppressed mysteries of his own.

A dark labyrinth of the monstrous and perverse that fuses mystery and horror while incorporating motifs from a myriad of Rampo's tales, Horrors of Malformed Men boasts astonishing carnivalesque art design and haunting performances. Withdrawn from cinemas by its own studio after its original scandalous release nearly fifty years ago, the film is among the very best screen interpretations of the author s macabre brand of horror-fantasy fiction, and a unique oddity of Japanese cult cinema.

Brand New HD Master from a 4K Scan of the Original Camera Negative! From raw desire… to rampant destruction! Tim Matheson (Up the Creek), Meg Tilly (Psycho II), Bill Paxton (Aliens) and Hume Cronyn (Cocoon) come face to face with mankind's deepest — and darkest — primal urges in this disturbing and suspenseful psychological thriller. Directed with flair by Graham Baker (Alien Nation) and packed with pulse-quickening twists that spring from its terrific premise, Impulse generates enough electricity to make your hair stand on end. When Jennifer (Tilly) and her boyfriend Stuart (Matheson) return to her idyllic hometown, they discover that all boundaries of civility seem to have eroded. Mystified by the actions of normally kind townspeople who are suddenly driven to extremes of irrational—and violent—behavior, Jennifer and Stuart attempt to get to the bottom of the increasingly life-threatening chaos... before it destroys them.

Directed by the one and only John Boorman (Hope and Glory), In My Country (2004) focuses on the burgeoning relationship between an Afrikaner poet (Juliette Binoche) and an African American journalist (Samuel L. Jackson) as both cover the excruciating South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings in Cape Town. Their personal story is interwoven with tales of apartheid’s victims and perpetrators, and South Africa’s valiant attempts to come to terms with its ruinous past.

[review_introduction] =>

From Spanish-born filmmaker J.A. Bayona, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a serviceable and amusing-enough sequel, delivering an unexpectedly bland story that's tolerably fun. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return for another disastrous adventure through science run amok, littered with lovely screensaver images that ultimately fall flat. The dinos wreak havoc on Blu-ray with an outstanding, reference-quality DTS:X audio and 1080p video presentation that's sure to unleash chaos to home theaters. With a small but decently informative assortment of supplements, the overall package is Recommended for fans of the franchise who are not planning to make the jump to 4K any time soon.

[review_movie] =>

Early into Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the direct follow-up to Colin Trevorrow's 2015 box-office juggernaut, Jeff Goldblum makes an appearance reprising his role as chaos theorist Dr. Ian Malcolm from Steven Spielberg's original and now-classic Jurassic Park. Testifying before a Senate hearing on whether the dinosaurs from the previous movie should be saved from an impending volcanic eruption, the mathematician suggests allowing the cloned animals to once again go extinct. He reasons humanity has done enough damage to the natural order of things and rescuing the animals will only lead to more harm. Of course, this being a franchise specifically about engineered dinosaurs and human interference, someone is bound not to heed the doctor's logical warning. And in a cinematic universe where characters are fully aware of the devastation and fatalities caused in the previous films, it's admittedly interesting, if also somewhat entertaining, to watch those characters ignore history and think they can avoid repeating the same mistakes. 

The man leading the rescue mission from the bed-ridden comfort of his massively luxuriant estate is Sir Benjamin Lockwood (an underused James Cromwell), John Hammond's former business partner. Naturally, he hires Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt) to return to the island they narrowly escaped a few years earlier because they possess a particular set of skills necessary for this ambitious operation — along with also thwarting the obvious evil plans introduced in the second act. Derek Connolly and Trevorrow's script reunites the two stars for this sequel in the most contrived manner that feels largely like a repeat of their first meeting. Claire is tasked by a superior to essentially fetch Owen, who is now building a cabin instead of working on his motorcycle. (You know, typical manly stuff.) Part of the fun in the first movie was the chemistry-driven banter of Howard and Pratt, which continues here for the most part, but it's not quite as amusing or comedic. As romantic leads, their charm feels shallow, and their predictable reunion is out of convenience. 

Perhaps, it has something to do with both characters being preoccupied with more pressing issues, such as the seasoned, trophy-collecting mercenary Ken Wheatley (Ted Levine) gathering the animals for more nefarious reasons. Or in the case of Owen, Pratt is distracted with practicing his manly glare, staring at others fixedly as though looking off into the distance. Whatever the case may be, the plot tries to ratchet the suspense and urgency as though the race against a massive volcano eruption were not enough. Now, our would-be heroes have to combat corporate greed, turning this production into a blend of The Lost World and Jurassic Park III. The protagonists are deceived into returning to the island, and the dinosaurs are again brought to California where they expectedly wreak havoc. Ironically, the merger plays out much better in this movie than in those aforementioned two, but Lockwood's granddaughter Maisie (Isabella Sermon) and Eli Mills (Rafe Spall) have much to do with that, providing some well-earned dramatic tension going into the film's second half. 

These few positives, however, are not exactly meant to suggest Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a great film, but rather, it's a serviceable follow-up that's on par with its predecessor. Director J.A. Bayona does well behind the camera, balancing the comedy with the action — of which there is plenty of, to be sure — and turning an unexpectedly bland story into tolerably fun, something that's better than the sequels of the original trilogy and a good addition to the overall franchise. Unfortunately, such soft, middling praise comes with some reservations, seeing as how the massive production comes from the same filmmaker as The Orphanage and A Monster Calls. Working with long-time collaborator and cinematographer Óscar Faura, Bayona seems so committed on delivering stunning visuals that he forgot to make a suspenseful movie or do something worthwhile with the overarching theme, littering the screen with lovely screensaver images that ultimately fall flat and supplying stunning, ear-deafening eye-candy that fails to captivate.

Vital Disc Stats: The Blu-ray

Universal Studios Home Entertainment brings Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to Blu-ray as a two-disc combo pack with a code for a Digital Copy. The Region Free, BD50 disc sits comfortably opposite a DVD-9, and both come inside a blue, eco-elite case with a shiny, glossy slipcover. After several skippable trailers, viewers are taken to a static menu with music.

[review_video] =>

The endangered dinos wreak havoc on Blu-ray with a stunningly gorgeous 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode, turning the arguably bland story, at least, into entertaining eye candy. Shot entirely on the Arri Alexa 65 digital camera system, the freshly-minted transfer is endlessly razor-sharp and near flawless, revealing every pore, wrinkle, and blemish in the face of the cast, especially during close-ups. Each blade of grass and leaf is distinct from a distance, and viewers can make out the rough, ragged bark of the trees while the tiniest imperfection and piece of wreckage of the dilapidated park is plainly visible. The stitching and threading in the clothing, the thick nylon belts and the canvas covering of the trucks are very well-defined, even during the fast-paced action. In fact, little fragments of debris and rubble remain discrete and striking at all times, especially during the volcanic eruption, and the seamless mix of CGI and animatronics is extraordinarily impressive, showing every fine line, fold, and furrow on the jagged, scarred bodies of the creatures. 

Faithful to the stylized cinematography of Óscar Faura, the presentation also boasts spot-on contrast with brilliant, pitch-perfect whites, giving the many screensaver moments a spectacular picturesque quality. Exterior scenes on the island are littered with beautiful scenic views where the individual creases of fluffy clouds are exposed and the sunshine glows with warmth. Brightness levels could arguably be a tad stronger, most notably in those aforementioned daylight sequences. However, on the whole, blacks are inky rich and luxurious, particularly during the more poorly-lit sequences where dark, stygian shadows penetrate deep into the screen while maintaining exceptional visibility of background details, providing the 2.39:1 image with a three-dimensional feel and a lovely cinematic appeal. The video is also awash in lush, sumptuous primaries, such as the vibrant, lively greens of the surrounding foliage, while secondary hues are varied and animated, like the spirited fiery oranges of the lava and the natural, lifelike facial complexions. (Video Rating: 96/100)

[review_audio] =>

Dinosaurs stampede home theaters with a monstrously sensational, reference-quality DTS:X soundtrack that almost immediately — and quite literally — submerges viewers into this fantasy adventure world. Within the first few minutes, whether we're searching the underwater depths of the aquatic park or on land hacking the computer system, the room is filled with the sloshing and swashing noise of the small submarine all around or heavy rain droplets falling directly above the listening area. Later, when walking through the jungle park, the chirping of birds, the rustling of leaves in trees or the roaring echo from a dino flawlessly pan through the overheads and surrounds. In the final, climactic quarter, the movie really comes to life with various effects discretely traveling across the ceiling or circling from one side of the room to the other. Quieter, more dialogue-driven moments may not be quite as aggressive, but they nonetheless come with various subtle atmospherics that terrifically maintains an effective and highly satisfying hemispheric soundfield. 

Keeping things awesomely engaging, many of those same ambient effects layer the visuals with plenty of background activity that fluidly move between the three front channels and to the top heights, generating a splendidly broad and spacious half-dome soundstage. The design delivers distinct clarity and superb definition in the mid-range, even during the loudest, ear-deafening moments, making every bone-crushing bite pop and snap with extraordinary detail. Again, the final climactic quarter is a fantastic demo-worthy moment where every scream, wail and thunderous roar is distinctly heard above the chaos without a hint of distortion while the dialogue remains intelligible throughout. Michael Giacchino's score exhibits a great deal of warmth and fidelity with excellent separation and definition in every note and between each instrument while lightly bleeding to the front overheads. Although not quite as aggressive or impressive as its predecessor, the low-end is nonetheless commanding with tremendous palpability and weight in the action and in every dino stomp, occasionally hitting as low 20Hz in a few spots (bass chart).

That TV commercial actress is so seductive she could sell you anything. She’s only a computer-generated illusion. What about the real beauty who was the computer’s model? Sorry, you can’t meet her: She and others like her have been murdered.

Writer/director Michael Crichton (ER, Coma) reaches into his brain-teasing bag of tricks for a mesmerizing thriller full of unfriendly persuasion generated by high-tech trickery. Albert Finney stars as a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon whose supermodel clients start dying mysteriously. Susan Dey plays his latest patient, also now in peril. And James Coburn is the head of a research facility which has developed a subtly hypnotic way to sell things. Take a good look at sleek, chic, scary Looker. There’s a lot more than meets the eye.

Carole Lombard and William Powell dazzle in this definitive screwball comedy, directed by Gregory La Cava—a potent cocktail of romantic repartee and Depression-era social critique. Irene (Lombard), an eccentric Manhattan socialite, wins a society-ball scavenger hunt after finding one of the “items” on the list, a “lost man” (Powell), at a dump. She gives the man she believes to be a down-and-out drifter work as the family butler, and soon falls head over heels in love. Her attempts to both woo Godfrey and indoctrinate him in the dysfunctional ways of the household make for an unbeatable series of madcap hijinks. La Cava’s deft film was the first to garner Oscar nominations in all four acting categories, and it is one of Hollywood’s greatest commentaries on class and the social unrest of its time.

They called him Papillon, meaning butterfly. If only he had wings to go with the name. Unable to fly, Henri Charriere virtually willed himself free. He persisted until he did the impossible: escape Devil’s Island. Based on Charriere’s bestseller and shot in Spain and Jamaica, Franklin J. Schaffner’s film of Papillon united two stars at key career junctures. After a decade of fine work in The Great Escape, The Sand Pebbles and Bullitt, Steve McQueen found in Charriere another ideal tough-guy role. Coming off The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy and Little Big Man, Dustin Hoffman again distinguished himself as Dega, Charriere’s scruffy friend.

Winner of 4 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and based on the first-hand experience of Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, Platoon is powerful, intense and starkly brutal. "Harrowingly realistic and completely convincing" (Leonard Maltin), it is "a dark, unforgettable memorial" (The Washington Post) to every soldier whose innocence was lost in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam. Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen) is a young, naive American who, upon his arrival in Vietnam, quickly discovers that he must do battle not only with the Viet Cong, but also with the gnawing fear, physical exhaustion and intense anger growing within him. While his two commanding officers (Oscar-nominated Tom Berenger and Willem Dafoe) draw a fine line between the war they wage against the enemy and the one they fight with each other, the conflict, chaos and hatred permeate Taylor, suffocating his realities and numbing his feelings to man's highest value: life.

A little girl with blonde hair, blue eyes, and porcelain skin fights on the front lines of a brutal war set in a fantasy world. What others don’t know is that she’s a reincarnated Japanese office worker who, in his former life, had a ruthless desire to climb the corporate ladder in hopes of retiring to a cushy corner office. After death, Being X decides to give him one last chance to surrender and believe—and Tanya Degurechaff is born.

However, Tanya is as stubborn and coldhearted as she was in her former life. Furthermore, her goals remain the same—find a way to retire to a cushy life. Instead, she constantly finds herself being tested on the front lines of the most hostile situations because Being X is determined to win her over, at any cost. Both parties are equally stubborn, and could it be that both are equally evil?

Mahiru Shirota has always preferred to live the simple life. If something needs done, it’d be easier for him to just do it. Reliable and practical, it’s no surprise when he brings home a rescue cat, which he names Kuro. But when little Kuro turns out to be a Servamp—a servant vampire—named Sleepy Ash, life takes a sharp turn for the complicated! Accidentally forming a contract with Sleepy Ash, Mahiru is pulled into a world of vampires and entangled in an ancient war between the seven deadly Servamps and their eighth brother, Tsubaki.

Keanu Reeves delivers the action in this thriller packed with pulse-pounding suspense. In Russia to sell rare jewels to a businessman with underworld connections, U.S. diamond merchant Lucas Hill (Reeves) falls into a torrid affair with Katya (Ana Ularu), a local café owner. When the deal suddenly goes south, Lucas and Katya are caught in a deadly crossfire between the buyer and Russian agents, as Lucas takes up arms in a furious fight to save Katya and himself.

[review_introduction] =>

Keanu Reeves bides his time between John Wick films in Siberia as a diamond dealer up against some bad folks intent on upending his deal. Despite all the elements of a great thriller in play, the film is oddly flat and stilted with only a few characters ever coming to life and plot entanglements repeatedly put on hold for some gratuitous T&A. A sense of urgency would have made this film something worth the time instead of just passing it. Lionsgate brings Siberia to Blu-ray in fine order with a solid A/V presentation ankled by a lackluster bonus feature package. Unless you're in need of some Reeves, you can Skip It. 

[review_movie] =>

Part of what I love about location-based thrillers is that they showcase a part of the world that most folks will never experience. The hero is a fish-out-of-water who doesn't have the lay of the land surrounded by strange people and customs without a command of the language. They're isolated and alone in a dangerous situation that just adds more tension to an already tense situation. If director Matthew Ross' Siberia had played with that idea a little more, it could have helped give the film some narrative thrust. Instead, we watch Keanu Reeves roll in full autopilot through this unfortunately flat and timid thriller as a diamond dealer who has angered the wrong people -- but still has time to make it with a beautiful local gal.

The diamond world is cutthroat. It's competitive, expensive, and dangerous enough that if you screw the wrong people you may end up dead in a ditch. Veteran diamond dealer Lucas Hill (Keanu Reeves) knows this full well as he travels to Russia to close a lucrative deal for some rare blue diamonds. His buyer Boris Volkov (Pasha D. Lunchnikoff) is more than a little miffed that the deal is taking so long. The problem is Lucas' middleman Pyotr has gone missing with the sample diamond and is the only man who knows where the loot is. Traveling to a remote Siberian town, Lucas hopes to locate his partner but instead finds a beautiful local café owner named Christa (Ashley St. George). Lucas finds himself against the ropes and in increasing danger as more men arrive searching for the diamonds he doesn't have.

Siberia

On paper, Siberia should work. It's got a dangerous McGuffin with the diamonds. A mission to find Pyotr who has the diamonds. The beautiful femme fatal Christa who may have her own ulterior motives. And there is a whole heap of bad guys who want what Lucas has to offer. Caught up in this plot web is a guy who just wants to close the deal but things increasingly go from bad to much, much worse. After a great opening few moments, the film hits the breaks hard and never recovers. 

My biggest issue (of many) with the film is that Reeves' Lucas Hill is a little too in his element. Traveling to Russia, he should be an alien, someone firmly outside of his comfort zone, but instead it's business as usual. He has a firm command of the language making menacing conversations from Russian bad dudes not all that menacing. Then the film makes the fatal mistake as the search for Pyotr and the blue diamonds gets trunked to a dead stop when Lucas starts romancing Christa. It's not a surprise, but a fleeting fling turns repetitive with frequent trips to the bedroom and virtually kills any and all tension as the film aims to switch gears from a thriller to a tragic romance that doesn't resonate. 

All the time I was watching Siberia I kept thinking of Frantic and how well executed that film was. It's a similar enough story with the main character in possession of something some bad people want who happens to also meet a beautiful and willing young woman to help him out of his jam. Frantic worked because Roman Polanski knew well enough to hold things back and keep the film focused. It didn't let itself get bogged down. It kept its focus on the destination and the danger. In contrast, Siberia almost felt bored with itself and so it decided to get tacky and play up the T&A to the point that it did more harm than good. If the movie is bored with itself you can't expect the audience to care.

Vital Disc Stats: The Blu-ray

Siberia slips and slides onto Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films in a single disc Blu-ray + Digital set. The film is pressed onto a Region A BD-50 disc and comes packed in an eco-friendly case with identical slipcover artwork. The disc loads to trailers for upcoming releases before arriving at a static image main menu with traditional navigation options.

Siberia

While Siberia may not be an interesting movie, it does offer up some impressive visuals to feed its 2.39:1 1080p transfer. Shot in Canada to double for the deep Russian tundra, the film enjoys some beautiful scenic locations while displaying a pleasing range of color, contrast, and black levels. Details are appropriately robust allowing you to appreciate facial features, clothing, as well as the film's production design work. Colors are slightly on the yellow drab side at times, but there is plenty of natural lighting to give the image a good range of primaries. Whites are especially vibrant with a stable presence without blooming. Black levels are on point dipping to some nice and inky tones giving the image a great sense of depth. All around this is an impressive looking image. 

[review_audio] =>

Siberia

Packed with a DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix, Siberia really only makes tangential usage of its surrounds. Most of the film plays fairly front and center with only a few bursts of notable surround activity. There is a nice sense of atmosphere to the mix, but there really isn't a whole lot in terms of dynamic sound effects to pull your attention in one direction or the other. Dialogue is clean and clear throughout and the film's score helps round out the mix and maintain the sense of mood. It gets through the basics and that's about it. 

[review_supplements] =>

Siberia

Like most of these dash off releases, Siberia doesn't pack much of a bonus feature package. The film's lone bonus is more or less an EPK talking head segment that's better suited as a YouTube promotional bit than a genuine piece of bonus content.

Siberia

Taken as a whole, Siberia is simply a missed opportunity. The film could have been something of a solid pulp thriller, but the finished product is sadly void of thrills as it loads itself with misplaced dramatics. Reeves and St. George are an attractive onscreen pair, but the eye candy is hardly enough to sustain interest. Lionsgate Films delivers a technically solid release for Siberia with a pleasing A/V presentation. Bonus features are forgettably unimportant. There are better Keanu Reeves fronted thrillers out there so you're safe from making an effort here. Probably best you Skip It

Shortly before his passing at the age of 86, influential gardener and horticulturalist Frank Cabot recounted his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his twenty-acre English style garden and summer estate that was opened to a film crew for the first time ever in 2009. Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Charlevoix County in Quebec, Les Quatre Vents has become one of the world s foremost private gardens. Created over 75 years and three generations, it is an enchanted place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century. Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man's personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to one of the greatest gardens in the world.

Having been at the forefront of America s here-and-now with Easy Rider and the counterculture movies of Roger Corman, Peter Fonda retreated to the past and the American West for his directorial debut, The Hired Hand.

Fonda plays Harry, a man who deserted his wife and child to explore the wide-open plains with his best friend Archie (Warren Oates). Tired of the life , he decides to finally return home in order to rekindle his marriage and reacquaint himself with his daughter.

Scripted by Alan Sharp (Ulzana s Raid, Night Moves), shot by Vilmos Zsigmond (Blow Out, The Long Goodbye) and with a standout score by folk musician Bruce Langhorne, The Hired Hand is a beautiful, elegiac picture that ranks alongside The Outlaw Josey Wales and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid as one of the finest Westerns the seventies had to offer.

The Looming Tower traces the rising threat of Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda in the late 1990s and how at the time, the FBI and the CIA may have inadvertently set the path for the tragedy of 9/11. The series follows members of the I-49 Squad in New York and Alec Station in Washington D.C., the counter terrorism divisions of the FBI and CIA, respectively, as they travel the world fighting for ownership of information while seemingly working toward the same goal – trying to prevent an imminent terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
 
Jeff Daniels stars as I-49 Squad chief John O’Neill who faces a deliberate lack of cooperation from other intelligence organizations within the federal government, after he’s convinced the United States has been targeted for an attack by Al-Qaeda. His counterpart within the CIA, the frequently antagonistic Martin Schmidt (Peter Sarsgaard), assumes the CIA is the only government agency equipped to battle potential terror threats from abroad. He disobeys presidential orders and purposely keeps information from the FBI. Although the goal of both organizations is the same, preventing a terrorist attack from happening in the U.S., the competitive nature between the two agencies and their inability to work with one another, may have given Al-Qaeda operatives in the U.S. the opportunity to put their devastating plan in motion.

We meet; Mack, Emily, Casey, Sam, Carter, Marty, Dick, and Lydia as they have just graduated High School in 1989. Mack (the smart good looking kid from the other side of the tracks) and his high school sweetheart Emily (the smart good looking kid from the right side of the tracks) throw a party at Emily’s parent’s house. At the end of the night one of their friends is killed in a car accident leaving the party. We are then re-introduced to this circle of friend’s decades later in the fog of midlife as they prepare to come together for a reunion party hosted by the now married Mack and Emily. At the party, the blanks that existed from 1989 to today are filled in. The friends begin to see each other for who they really are and not for what they once thought they were. As the party winds down, this snapshot of time presents an opportunity to reflect with nostalgia upon where we they’ve been and where they might go from here. In the end, Mack’s fate is somewhat unclear as he slips beneath the water line (literally and metaphorically).

Directed by Charles Jarrott (Anne of the Thousand Days), The Other Side of Midnight (1977) is a spectacularly epic adaptation of Sidney Sheldon’s melodrama focusing on the rise of a French shopgirl, Noelle (the great Marie-France Pisier). After a torrid World War II-era love affair with an American pilot, Larry (John Beck), leaves her abandoned and pregnant, Noelle vows revenge – which includes becoming a fashion model, an international movie star, and the mistress of a staggeringly wealthy Greek tycoon (Raf Vallone). Susan Sarandon co-stars as Larry’s perky post-war wife, and Clu Gulager is thankfully around, too. Appropriately fabulous score by Michel Legrand, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

The Pink Panther is a heroic, moral cartoon cat with pink fur and the manners of an English aristocrat. He only becomes flustered or angry at obtuse or offensive humans who try to disrupt his existence, or at troublesome gadgets, rodents, or insects. In most of his cartoons, he stumbles into a difficult situation and stoically endeavors to make the best of it. Episodes of this series feature three theatrical cartoons, two with the Pink Panther, and one featuring the Inspector, a cartoon version of the accident-prone, bumbling French detective, Inspector Clouseau, played in movies by Peter Sellers. The Inspector is often assisted by a Spanish gendarme, Sergeant Deux-Deux, and together they fallibly battle villains of all shapes and sizes in various parts of the world, always on the orders of the long-suffering Surete Commissioner.

Throughout the late 1960s and into the 70s, the Italian giallo movement transported viewers to the far corners of the globe, from swinging San Francisco to the Soviet-occupied Prague. Only one, however, brought the genre s unique brand of bloody mayhem as far as Australia: director Flavio Mogherini (Delitto passionale) s tragic and poetic The Pyjama Girl Case.

The body of a young woman is found on the beach, shot in the head, burned to hide her identity and dressed in distinctive yellow pyjamas. With the Sydney police stumped, former Inspector Timpson (Ray Milland, Dial M for Murder) comes out of retirement to crack the case. Treading where the real detectives can t, Timpson doggedly pieces together the sad story of Dutch immigrant Glenda Blythe (Dalila Di Lazzaro, Phenomena) and the unhappy chain of events which led to her grisly demise.

Inspired by the real-life case which baffled the Australian police and continues to spark controversy and unanswered questions to this day, The Pyjama Girl Case is a uniquely haunting latter-day giallo from the tail end of the genre s boom period, co-starring Michele Placido (director of Romanzo Criminale) and Howard Ross (The New York Ripper), and featuring a memorably melancholic score by veteran composer Riz Ortolani (Don t Torture a Duckling).

In 1970 the Isle of Wight Festival was one of the largest musical events of its time. Bigger than Woodstock, and controversial from the get-go, hundreds of thousands of people descended on the island. Many of those without tickets set up camp on a hill overlooking the festival site, opposing the consumerism of the event and intent on taking the music back by any means necessary. It was a celebration of hippy counter culture gone awry, and in Joni's words "they fed me to the beast". Joni Mitchell took to the stage to deliver an outstanding performance against all odds. At times it was a battle against the audience, as they tore down barriers and shouted obscenities. Her set was interrupted multiple times, including one man invading the stage to try address the crowd. She later commented, "It seemed like an appropriate time to flee...", but still the seemingly fragile folk-rock singer stood her ground. Instead she returned to her piano, sitting on a fold-up wooden chair, and made an impassioned plea for respect from the audience, continuing her set with "My Old Man" she won over the crowd and the atmosphere softened. In response the front page of Melody Maker hailed her with the frontpage headline, "Joni triumphs!". Directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Murray Lerner, Both Sides Now: Live At The Isle of Wight Festival features new interviews with Joni, discussing her recollections of the event intercut with festival footage, both onstage and behind the scenes, offering a fascinating insight into a now legendary concert from the artists point of view and putting the events of the day into context. Alternatively, fans can enjoy the uninterrupted live concert footage featuring classic songs such as "Woodstock", "Both Sides Now" and "Big Yellow Taxi".

As the US approaches a century since entering World War I, director Sean Stone asks, “What happened to the American Century? What happened to America's ideal of progress?” Americans are feeling squeezed out of the traditional middle-class economy. He links America’s petrodollar economy with its global military predominance, often to secure corporate access to natural resources. Stone makes the argument that “a century of war has taken its toll on the great US republic.” But looking to the future, Stone argues for energy alternatives to the oil-based economy, as well as infrastructure innovations to revive domestic markets. The story is told through narrative and interviews with economists, historians, scientists and innovators.

Haunted by the death of his father and other psychological traumas, Daniel (Roberto Scorza) returns to the home where he was raised. Faced with intense emotional scars, as well as physical -- which are realized by the years of self-harm depicted by the cuttings adorning his body -- he enters the bathroom to begin a journey of self-exploration, self-mutilation and quite possibly, self-enlightenment. Prepared only with three white candles and some crude instruments, Daniel attempts to beckon the embrace of the Goddess Ishtar (Flora Giannattasio) to assist him on his self-illumination.

From the producers of Soul Food and director Tim Story (Ride Along) comes this ''warm, generous'' (The New York Times) tale about a Chicago barbershop where razor-sharp comedy never goes out of style! Starring Ice Cube (Ride Along), Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Sean Patrick Thomas (Save The Last Dance), Eve (xXx), Cedric the Entertainer (Larry Crowne), Troy Garity (Ballers), Michael Ealy (The Perfect Guy) and Keith David (They Live), Barbershop is both a ''sweet, life-affirming movie'' (N.Y. Daily News) and outrageous, bust-a-gut fun!

Calvin (Ice Cube) is a would-be entrepreneur with big plans and running his family's barbershop isn't one of them. But when he impulsively sells the shop to a shady loan shark, he soon realizes just how important the neighborhood parlor is to him and just how far he'll go to get it back!

No matter what rolled in on the tides of time, California surfing buddies Matt, Jack and Leory knew they'd stick together. And that they'd be ready when a rare 20-foot swell hit the coast at last.

Big Wednesday celebrates surfing as much as the most dedicated kid who ever waxed a board. It's also a fascinating 1962-1974 chronicle of friendships and lifestyles in transition. John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn) directs and co-scripts with a passion for the ultimate ride and a truthful feel for those turbulent times. Stars Jan-Michael Vincent and William Katt are accomplished surfers; co-lead Gary Busey (Point Break, 1991) learned for the role. And the vivid camerawork drops you inside awesome barrels of ocean blue.

The Eunice Corporation is on the ground floor of an exciting growth industry, utilizing a memory re-sculpting technique pioneered by eccentric neurosurgeon Rex Martin (Bill Pullman, Independence Day, The Grudge). It envisions nationwide clinics where anyone can lose the hang-ups of an unhappy childhood, a failed romance or a botched career. At Eunice's "New You" outlets, a simple operation will give customers peace of mind. Or it might leave them brain dead. But when Martin refuses to cooperate with Eunice, he soon finds himself plunged into a surreal existence that intertwines dreams and reality. Has Martin slipped over the edge into madness?

An acclaimed early work by Olivier Assayas, the long-unavailable, deeply felt coming-of-age drama Cold Water can at last be seen in the United States. Drawing from his own youthful experiences, Assayas revisits the outskirts of Paris in the early 1970s, telling the story of teenage lovers Gilles (Cyprien Fouquet) and Christine (Virginie Ledoyen), whose rebellions against family and society threaten to tear them apart. The visceral realism of the movie’s narrative and the near experimentalism of its camera work come together effortlessly thanks to a rock soundtrack that vividly evokes the period. With one of the most memorable party sequences ever committed to film as a centerpiece, Cold Water is a heartbreaking immersion in the emotional tumult of being young.

Pascal Marchand, an aspiring poet from Montreal, arrived in the mythical land of Burgundy to work the harvest at age 21. Enchanted by the region, he settled there and embarked on an unlikely path to winemaking stardom. Now over 30 years later, he is renowned as an artist and innovator, finding his inspiration in the ancient techniques of the Cistercian monks who meticulously studied and refined Burgundy's winemaking in the middle ages. Shot over his most difficult year ever, the catastrophic 2016 season which saw devastating frosts, hailstorms and disease in the vineyards, the film is both a love letter and a cautionary tale, as winemakers like Pascal must face the unpredictable and destructive consequences of climate change.

Five years, eight months, 12 days...and counting. That's how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock)—just released from prison—has been concocting the greatest heist of her storied career. She knows what it's going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her former partner-in-crime Lou (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Mindy Kaling), street con Constance (Awkwafina), expert fence Tammy (Sarah Paulson), hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna) and fashion designer Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter). The target is $150 million in diamonds—diamonds that will adorn the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), who will be center stage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. Their plan appears rock solid, but it will need to be flawless if the team is to get in and get away—all in plain sight.

[review_introduction] =>

Franchise sidequels are a risky venture but Ocean's 8 proves Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, and their band of merry thieves can steal the show -- especially in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray! Director Gary Ross keeps an eye on the show-stopping glitz and glamor of the Met Gala while never losing focus what amounts to being a clever and humorous heist flick that sits nicely alongside the previous trilogy. Warner Bros. has delivered a first-rate Blu-ray experience with a beautiful picture and terrific audio mix and some halfway decent assortment of bonus features. If you enjoyed Clooney and his boys give Bullock and her gals a shot. Ocean's 8 is just good popcorn fun. Recommended.

(We've also reviewed this film on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.)

"If you're going to have a problem with stealing, then you're probably not going to like the rest of this conversation."

Debbie Ocean (Sandar Bullock) just got out of jail. She did her time after she got pinned for a scam her ex-boyfriend Claude (Richard Armitage) pulled. In jail, she spent her time wisely and productively, not becoming a reformed member of society, but instead planning a heist so daring her brother Danny wouldn't even attempt - robbing the Met Gala. Specifically, the invaluable diamond necklace actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) is going to wear. To pull it off she's going to need a crack crew including her old pal Lou (Cate Blanchett), the washed-up fashion designer Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter), Amita (Mindy Kaling), Nine Ball (Rihanna), Constance (Awkwafina), and Tammy (Sarah Paulson). With a thousand guests and an expert security team roaming around, what could possibly go wrong?

Ocean's 8

I was a bit apprehensive about another Oceans film added to the mix without any of the original cast with the seemingly arbitrary push for a ladies-only gang of thieves. Thankfully Gary Ross and his co-writer Olivia Milch found a way to make the adventures of Sandra Bullock's Debbie Ocean fit within the world of Clooney's Daniel Ocean. Making them not only siblings but the offspring of a long line of thieves and con artists opens up the Ocean's world beyond the narrowly confined adventures of the previous film. 

While 8 plays on the possibility that Danny has died, it very much leaves that window open for Clooney to make a return should things move along. But not only Clooney, as it's revealed dear old dad had some sticky fingers and is also possibly still alive, he too could come back for a family reunion of sorts. If they go this path I would cast Clint Eastwood (big longshot there) as an older variation of his Thunderbolt and Lightfoot character just for the fun of it. The point is - there's a lot of room left to explore new characters and new crimes. And given the returns on this outing, I'd wager fans would be up for some more thieving fun with Bullock's Debbie Ocean.

Like any good heist movie, the devil's in the details so I don't want to go into any depth there suffice to say that it's pretty intricate and actually a lot of fun to watch the pieces move into place. The whole cast worked for me -- even Rihanna's hacker Nine Ball -- but who probably proved to be the most fun was Helena Bonham Carter as the passé designer Rose Weil. She's the perfect send-up of the fashion industry without being too cartoonish but carries on with an entertainingly comical cluelessness that shows her range when she gets a great character to play with(outside of a Tim Burton flick). Carter really goes full out while Bullock proves herself a stable leader for this ragtag bunch.

If I have a small complaint I would like to see rectified for future installments is that Oceans 8 lacked a sense of urgency to it. Even though 1112, and 13 all were pretty predictable, there was at least a measure of "this plan could go wrong" to drive some tension and excitement. There are a couple moments that fit that bill with 8, but nothing really sticks for long, or at least long enough to make you feel like the plan could actually fall apart. Bullock goes in confident that her plan will work and remains so throughout. Part of the problem with this is I'd say that Ross maybe gave too much of an inside view to the audience of the plans. Each of the previous films left a few elements seemingly up in the air so that when they came together there was a surprise. But if that really is the only complaint I've got, it's not a big one as the rest of the film is a gas and after watching a couple times through now I still enjoy it. It's not as good as, say, Ocean's 11 or 13, but I'd put it above 12 in the franchise scale. There isn't a tragic scene like Julia Roberts pretending to be herself so 8 at least knew of one deep and perilous pitfall to avoid.

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8 maintains the franchise's integrity by arriving with a strong1080p 2.40:1 transfer. Like its cousins, 8 is a slick-looking production with terrific character, costume, and set design work. A lot of little gags and plot bits hinge on small visual details and this transfer picks up everything beautifully. Details are strong offering up clear facial features. Clothing really catches the eye as there is a full range of intricate costumes employed and once the plot moves to the actual Met Gala, the imagery goes full tilt boogie. Colors are bright and bold with some fantastic primary pop, reds and blues get their day in the sun with some nice bright yellows as well. Black levels are pretty damn strong for the most part, however, when the film sees Lou's club and then later her warehouse hideout I felt like the black levels could look a bit hazy brown rather than true black. It's a small moment in a nearly two-hour movie so it's not a big issue but one of note. Aside from some ever so slight video noise and a couple spots that looked a bit on the soft side, this is a damn good looking image.  

[review_audio] =>

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8  gets some great bang for its buck with an on-point Dolby Atmos track. Thankfully, unlike other recent WB releases, you do not have to select the Atmos track over a DTS-HD MA 5.1 track - there isn't a DTS track at all so if you're not Atmos ready, the mix defaults to a Dolby TrueHD 7.1 mix.

If there is one little thing I feel should be addressed at the outset is that I felt like this mix was initially a little on the soft side. Not Disney-soft by any stretch, but I did have to punch it up a notch or two. From then on everything was perfect. Dialogue is clear and crisp throughout without any issues with overlapping audio elements. Sound effects and scoring are lively keeping the film's energy going. The mix is at it's best during busy city scenes, Lou's club, and in particular at the Met Gala - anywhere where there is a constant flurry of activity, the mix handles the sense of imaging and spacing perfectly giving a full object-based soundscape. 

This Atmos mix also makes good use of the verticals. Initially, the extra channels felt like they're really only being used to offer up more space for the mix, but once the movie gets really going and any time there is a lot of activity on the screen they open up and get to work. The Met Gala sequences are a blast as there are tons of people mingling, servers moving, kitchen crews and a lot of camera snaps and shouting press to fill the scenes. There are times where the mix may not call too much attention to itself, but when it counts most this Atmos track delivers.

Ocean's 8

Bonus features for Ocean's 8 may not be plentiful or lengthy but they're at least above average quality. The deleted scenes don't offer much, but each of the production featurettes gives you enough of a behind-the-scenes look at the various aspects of the production to be much better than your average by the numbers EPK talking head filler. 

  • Deleted Scenes (HD 1:53)
  • Reimagining The Met Gala (HD 12:47)
  • A Heist in Heels (HD 11:35)
  • Oceans Team 3.0 (HD 13:20)

Ocean's 8

Sandra Bullock and her crack crew of damsel thieves fit nicely within the cinematic world started by Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney 17 years ago. As a sidequel of sorts, Oceans 8 lets a couple familiar faces come and go while allowing the new cast and crew under the helm of writer and director Gary Ross show they're up to the challenge of pulling off a fun heist flick. There's plenty of room and reason to enjoy this entry and hopefully a couple more adventures with this new team of thieves. Warner Bros. has done a solid job bringing Ocean's 8 to Blu-ray with a great A/V presentation and a decent mix of bonus features. If you're in the mood for some easygoing popcorn-munching fun, give this a spin. Recommended

But when he meets Ryo Yoake of the ReLife Research Institute, he’s offered a chance to change everything.

But if he screws up, he’ll be another year older and still a complete loser! Is this a promise for change or a set up for more failure?

SAY YOU WILL is told through the eyes of Sam Nimitz, a conservatory-bound musician spending his final summer at home caring for his reclusive mother in the wake of his father’s suicide. Torn between his caregiving duties and chasing his dream of becoming a composer like his father before him, Sam finds unlikely solace in his troubled childhood crush, Ellie Vaughn. With Ellie’s help, Sam devises a plan to reconnect his mother with the man she almost married before his father. This earnest attempt to help his mother move on serves as a poignant and uplifting exploration of grief, growing up, and the kind of love that can only be carved from loss in this coming of age drama from writer / director Nick Naveda.

An affecting human drama of love, loss, and resilience unfolds against the backdrop of World War I. The women of the Paridier farm, under the deft hand of Hortense, the family's matriarch (Nathalie Baye,) must grapple with the workload while the men, including two sons, are off at the front. Hortense reluctantly brings on an outsider, the hard-scrabble teenage orphan, Francine (Iris Bry), to help her daughter Solange (Laura Smet). New tools allow the women to triumph over the land, newfound independence is acquired, yet emotions are stirred especially when the men return from the front on short leaves. Acclaimed filmmaker Xavier Beauvois (Of Gods and Men) revels in the mysteries and beauties of the French countryside, here unravaged by war, with painterly images bathed in natural light, yet keeps his focus on the intricate drama that plays out against the upheaval of the Great War.

Moore stars as Abby Quinn, a young woman who discovers that she and her unborn child play a terrifying part in the chain of events destined to end the world. Already troubled with a difficult pregnancy, Abby grows more distraught once she and her husband (Biehn, The Terminator, Aliens, The Fan) rent their studio apartment to David (Prochnow, In The Mouth Of Madness), an enigmatic drifter. As Abby becomes ensnared in a series of otherworldly experiences, it becomes apparent that David is carrying out the mythical prophecies of Judgment Day ... and that she has been chosen as the instrument of the Seventh Sign. But can Abby — or anyone — stand between the wrath of God and the future of humanity?

[review_introduction] =>

A fresh-faced Demi Moore stars in the Biblical apocalypse thriller The Seventh Sign in which one expectant mother takes on the end of the world. With a solid cast and interesting themes, it’s no wonder the film has a legion of fans. Unfortunately, it never transcends the clunky storytelling that ultimately keeps it from reaching greatness. Scream Factory’s Blu-ray release of The Seventh Sign provides a respectable A/V presentation with a new set of new bonus features sure to please longtime fans. Recommended.

“You are the seventh seal.”

If you lived through the cable boom of the 90’s, you’ve probably seen The Seventh Sign. Named after the seven signs of the impending apocalypse in the Book of Revelation, the film was practically on every movie channel along with the likes of The Beastmaster. It was produced during the late 80’s in an era of “Satanic Panic” where everything from heavy metal to arthouse films was supposedly driving people into Devil worshipping cults. Fortunately, this film eschews the demonic themes and instead focuses on Biblical texts and the sacrifices required for devout religious faith. Revisiting this old standard, I was pleasantly surprised at how different this movie would be if it were made today. Could a film like The Seventh Sign tackle the Biblical apocalypse without channeling a million jump-scares or whiplash-generating CGI? 

Agnostic expectant mother Abby (Demi Moore) goes in for a routine sonogram then puts down a deposit on a swanky preschool. Her husband Russell (Michael Biehn) is a lawyer in the midst of a case involving a teenager with Down Syndrome called the “Word of God Killer.” Growing concerned for her baby Abby begins seeing visions and experiencing omens. Russell turns her away as being just another worried mother-to-be. We cut to a stoic figure (Jürgen Prochnow) named David Bannon who is bringing about the Biblical apocalypse by breaking the seals on prophecies which wreck death and destruction in their wake. Hot on his trail is Father Lucci (Peter Friedman) sent from the Vatican to investigate claims of the prophecies coming true. When Abby rents out her garage apartment it’s David who signs the lease. Snooping through his things she believes that David is somehow ushering in the apocalypse and her unborn child is in grave danger.  

The Seventh Sign is an underrated gem of a film. Combining late 80’s religious hysteria with a moody suburban lens on religious faith the film finds a cozy pocket between character drama and horror/thriller. Those with an acute knowledge of Christianity and Judaism will see how the film picks various elements from the two in order to craft the story. Instead of taking the Roland Emmerich approach to the end of days, Hungarian director Carl Schultz takes a subtler course by using sympathetic characters to drive the story rather than mass hysteria and bloated action set pieces. Sure it could be a budgetary restraint, but it’s refreshing. To see Abby channel surfing as the world is crumbling around her paints an eerie portrait about our disconnect with the world. Unfortunately, some convoluted plotting turns an otherwise straightforward Good vs. Evil dynamic into a confusing mess. A number of subplots and subtexts are hinted at but never explored fully. Also, too many pertinent details are revealed in the final scenes leaving viewers in bewilderment as the climax closes in quickly. It’s unfortunate that Father Lucci’s story is sacrificed in this manner. I’d love to give more details but I don’t want to spoil anything! 

Demi Moore’s performance is solid throughout. She handles the weight of the proceedings confidently if a tad on a melodramatic side. Michael Biehn turns in a hot-headed performance as Russell, providing some much-needed tension. While the character is mostly forgettable till the end Biehn should be commended for adding some meat to the part. Jürgen Prochnow’s icy intensity cuts through the screen keeping the audience constantly on edge. It’s a great performance from an exceptional character actor. The great John Heard has a bit-part towards the end as a Reverend that caught me off guard; for a few moments, he steals the show and adds a bit of humor to an otherwise intense story. 

As we’re taken on Abby’s nightmarish journey with the mysterious stranger in her garage the breadth of humanity begins to unfold as the apocalypse draws near. It’s no coincidence that the weight of the world rests on a mother’s shoulders. As a parent watching this film I was moved by the story’s climax and sat in wonderment as the credits rolled. The Seventh Sign is a memorable film that portrays the sacrifices needed for faith and belief.

The Seventh Sign is presented in 1080p with an Anamorphic 2.35:1 aspect ratio. The transfer looks very clean with film grain evident but a bit of noise permeating the image at times. The color palette is pretty dismal and unmistakably 80’s as we follow Abby around her life, but when the film takes us to dream sequences and far-flung destinations we see vivid life show through this HD transfer. Unfortunately, the resolution exaggerates the boring 80’s drab color palette leaving the viewer praying for more outdoor scenes! No damage apparent on the image. Fine detail is visible and consistent from the individually groomed hairs on Demi’s eyebrows to the intricate costume textures on the Roman soldier. Skin tones appear even throughout the feature. Primaries aren’t vivid but pronounced when necessary. Black levels are solid without evidence of crushing. Overall, the visual presentation is very good here with a respectable image quality. 

[review_audio_picture_id] => 85287 [review_audio] =>

Supplied with only a DTS HD-MA 2.0 audio mix, The Seventh Sign sounds remarkably good. The track accentuates all the nuances hidden within the texture like the creepy Gregorian chants, ominous echoes, and other foreboding elements. Dialogue is clear and clean without hiss detected. Balance is consistent through the sound field with the work handled confidently by the center and front channels. Low frequencies resonate strongly within the mix and are tested during the earthquake scenes. Overall, it's a nicely groomed audio track that gets the job done. I’d keep the volume level at medium as the atmospherics and scoring really heighten the experience of watching the film. English subtitles available.

Four decades into an already legendary career, Terrence Malick realized his most rapturous vision to date, tracing a story of childhood, wonder, and grief to the outer limits of time and space. Reaching back to the dawn of creation, Malick sets a story of boyhood memories on a universal scale, charting the coming of age of an awestruck child (newcomer Hunter McCracken) in Texas in the 1950s, as he learns to navigate the extremes of nature and grace represented by his bitter, often tyrannical father (Brad Pitt) and his ethereal, nurturing mother (Jessica Chastain, in her breakout role). Shot with nimble attention to life’s most fleeting moments by Emmanuel Lubezki, the Palme d’Or–winning The Tree of Life marks the intimately personal, cosmically ambitious culmination of Malick’s singular approach to filmmaking.

[review_movie] =>

It's difficult to encapsulate Terrence Malick's 'The Tree of Life' into a simple movie review. It quite possibly defies any conventional review rating scale, because of its uniqueness. Like a piece of art hanging in a gallery, the feelings, meanings, and morals represented are completely subjective to the viewer. Malick has crafted an experience that isn't so much a rigid narrative, as it is a stream of consciousness about the wonders of life -- big and small.

I'm not a universal Malick fan. To me, 'The New World' is one of the most sleep-inducing films out there. However, when he gets it right, he really gets it right. It's almost impossible to simply say what the movie is about, since it's about everything. Its main storyline has to do with the O'Brien family and their three sons growing up in the 50s. Their father (Brad Pitt) is a strict authoritarian figure who pushes his kids to be "better." Or at least what he views as better. Like so many children, they are able to easily spot the hypocrisies in their dad's actions and question his whole method of parenting.

The oldest child, Jack (Hunter McCracken), has taken it upon himself to rebel. Through a series of scenes we see Jack grow and change, becoming more and more bitter as he realizes that his dad is a flawed human being.

Countering the father's severe nature is a loving mother (Jessica Chastain) who is a shelter for the children when dad flips out. She and her husband are constantly at odds on what's the best way to teach their children. She hugs them close, while he teaches them about violence and getting ahead in the world at any cost. It's an interesting dichotomy that is truly the crux of the movie. The beginning opens with a voiceover explaining that there are two ways through this world: grace and nature. With the help of the special feature on this set, we come to realize that while the mother exudes the theme of grace, their father is nature. She tries to build them up, while he relentlessly tears them down. She's cool and calm, he's oppressive.

'Tree of Life' isn't your normal film. Not at all. The camera isn't so much telling as it is observing. Many of the scenes seem unplanned like the actors were told to interact with each other and the camera would just be there witnessing the event. In this way Malick is able to capture some of the more powerful, yet subtle reactions children have. We're able to perceive each scene in our own unique way. The family interaction captured here is real, poignant, and extremely emotional. It's a distinctive level of humanistic understanding that I haven't seen in any other movie I've ever watched.

Juxtaposed against this family and their real-life troubles is a creation story of sorts. A sweeping set of images placed strategically by Malick to give us a sense of awe and wonder about life. How insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things. How awesome nature is and how everything in the universe is somehow connected. Do I think he goes a little overboard with the abstract imagery? At times, yes I do. While some of it is amazing to look at, I found myself wondering what this has to do with anything, or if it's actually meant to mean something anyway. Like I said, a work of art will elicit a thousand different opinions and feelings from a thousand different people, and this film is no different. One scene may impact someone while it leaves another feeling empty and cold. That's okay, though, because after seeing this film again I'm convinced there's no right or wrong way to view it. It's just there, like an abstract painting hanging on a wall. You're free to make up your own mind regarding its merit because it forces you to.

One thing that I will say definitively about 'Tree of Life' is that out of all the movies I saw this year, this one made me think about it the most after I'd walked out of the theater. Months later I found myself wondering about certain scenes and about the feelings I felt after watching it. It's a cinematic journey that definitely sticks with you.

The Blu-ray: Vital Disc Stats

This 20th Century Fox release comes complete with a 50-GB Blu-ray Disc, a DVD copy of the movie, and a third disc for the Digital Copy. It's housed in a standard Blu-ray keepcase with a swinging arm with two disc hubs. There is a slipcover provided which has the same artwork as the front cover, but switches it up a bit for the back. It's indicated on the back that this is a Region A release.

[review_video_picture_id] => 24859 [review_video] =>

Before I get into this part of the review I want to preface this with a quick note. Most of this disc is completely and utterly demo-worthy. It's simply one of the best looking Blu-rays I've ever seen. However, I do have one minor squabble with it which brings it down to a 4.5 on the star scale. Don't worry, though, it's just because our scoring doesn't allow for a 4.9, if it did I would've used it. With our current grading scale I felt like I had to mark it down a bit. Just know that the majority of this Blu-ray is simply five star material.

'The Tree of Life' is such a visually stunning movie. Most of the movie relies on its visuals as there are long stretches without any principle dialogue. Just sweeping images of stunning scenery which gleam to perfection.

Color here is absolutely splendid. I don't remember the last time where I was so gob-smacked by a movie's color representation. The moment the camera swings upward and catches the perfect geometrically spaced stained glass windows in the church is one of the many moments where I felt like pausing it and trying to print out that one screenshot to frame it. That's how beautiful this movie looks. Almost every frame could be paused, printed, and hung in a frame.

Fine detail is optimum. Check out the image of Mr. O'Brien holding the foot of his newborn in his hands. Every soft line of the baby's foot is visible, contrasted against the hard lines of his father's hands. The facial details of the actors are unparalleled. I mean, you can literally see the fine peach-fuzz running down Jessica Chastain's neck as the setting sun shines through illuminating even the tiniest hair. Textures! Oh boy the textures! Take a look at the close-ups of the kids' denim jeans, or the woven texture of their father's suit, or the flattering fabric of their mother's dresses.

Shadows are deeply satisfying. Many times Malick focuses on the shadows being cast by the human figures instead of the humans themselves. They are dark and resolute, with perfectly defined edges. Shadows add a striking depth to the visual design. Even the CG effects like the random dinosaurs (yes, CG dinosaurs in a Malick film), look fantastically designed. The high-def treatment only enriches the animation instead of pointing out its faults.

With all this adoration you have got to be wondering where my caveat comes in right? Well, here it is. This is my one, very minor quarrel with the visual design, a technical issue which should impact the score somewhat. During the creation/space scenes there are numerous fade-ins and fade-outs. As the movie adjusts from one cosmic image after another, slight banding is fairly noticeable on the outskirts of the objects coming into or vanishing from view. This really is the only drawback to this otherwise masterful video presentation. Like I said, I would have given it a 4.9 if possible, but because of the limitations of a set scoring system a 4.5 will do. Just know that besides the minor banding issues, this is one of the most truly awe-inspiring, visually stunning Blu-ray video presentations this side of 'Baraka .'

[review_audio_picture_id] => 24860 [review_audio] =>

I'm thinking back on all the Blu-rays I've ever watched and I don't think any have ever started with a note from the filmmakers saying for the best audio experience that they recommend listening to the movie "loud." It makes perfect sense. You won't feel the full weight of this much nuanced soundtrack by just allowing it to play at your normal volume level. Crank this baby up and let its incredibly complex sound design wash over you.

Fox has provided a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 mix for this release. Believe me when I say this, you're going to want all eight of those channels to be able to get the full effect of this film. From the opening scene you can distinctly hear waves crashing. Full-bodied waves that fill the whole front part of the soundfield. The smooth crashing of the waves seamlessly ebbs and flows through the channels creating a very realistic experience.

The soundtrack is full of memorable classical pieces from Brahms to Mozart which reverberate through all seven speakers. This music is meant to envelope you in the scenes and it most certainly does. It sucks you in as the symphonic sounds are clearly defined with wonderful fidelity.

Directionality is key as every scene is almost like we're right in the middle of it. We hear people talking off to the side in the side speakers, while other kids chatter up front about something completely different. A town waterhole is filled to the brim with townsfolk milling about and their children frolicking in the water. Each individual voice is distinct and intelligible, even when all the kids in the group are talking simultaneously like they so often do.

The subwoofer also isn't left out at all. The celestial scenes are packed with ominous LFE. As a small planet passes by what appears to be a giant fireball it's easy to feel the surging bass being produced. When volcanoes erupt, the sudden force was enough to terrifyingly jar my sleeping dog awake, causing her to move further away from the television.

Dialogue is always intelligible, even the whispers -– of which there are many. This is one of the reasons you need that volume turned up loud. There are so many hushed lines of dialogue that you'll miss something if it isn't cranked up a bit. What is very telling to me about this mix is that there are a few times where a sound or two are thrown in without any warning. At the beginning after the O'Brien's find out that their son has died in the war, the camera pans through a forest gazing at the treetops and you can hear Mrs. O'Brien scream. It's a muted scream, but it's delicate touch isn't lost in the slightest.

Just like the video, the audio here is breathtakingly amazing. Demo material all the way around.

[review_bonus_content_picture_id] => 24861 [review_bonus_content] =>

This is where the release falters. They could've provided endless amounts of special features for this, but there's only one included. Oh how I wish there was a commentary or some kind of picture-in-picture track to go with this.

    • Exploring the 'Tree of Life' (HD, 30 min.) – This is a bit of a strange making-of featurette. In perfect mysterious Malick fashion he doesn't show up at all, but directors like David Fincher and Christopher Nolan are on hand to talk extensively about Malick's influence on cinema and on them. At times it feels a little promotional in nature, and it is indeed fairly heavy with clips from the film, but it does show a good bit of behind-the-scenes footage which is really nice. It also explains the origins of the movie and the free-wheeling way it was shot. Many times Malick gave the kids a simple outline for the scene and then let them go do what they wanted to do. Other times they just filmed the kids playing on their own. If you're a fan of the movie you should watch this feature, but if you're like me you'll probably be sad that there isn't more.

[review_final_thoughts_picture_id] => 24862 [review_final_thoughts] =>

I really wish I didn't have to assign a finite score to 'The Tree of Life.' It's simply an experience. An expedition into the deepest human emotions. I don't think I've ever seen a movie so aptly encapsulate childhood and the way we remember things. We don't remember our pasts in a linear fashion, just fragments here and there. One memory leads to another and so on.

The video and audio are about the best you're going to find on Blu-ray. The banding was a tiny bit of a problem, but when you compare it to the whole it's hardly noticeable. The fact is you'll be blown away by the audio and visual presentations of this disc. 'The Tree of Life' is highly recommended.

From Oscar-nominated director Shuhei Morita (Best Animated Short Film, Possessions) and the studio that brought you Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho comes a twisted new series that blurs the line between man and monster.

Ken Kaneki is a loner. In a world where ghouls—human-like creatures who survive on human flesh—and people are at war, his biggest concern is which novel to pick up next. But when a date with the beautiful and mysterious Rize turns deadly, a life-saving operation horrifyingly transforms him into a human-ghoul hybrid. Now, Kaneki lives on the edge of two worlds: afraid to interact with humans out of fear of his thirst for blood, and being hunted by ghouls who want to feast on his uniquely bred flesh. Can he find his place in a society where it’s hunt or be hunted?

Vatican Miracle Examiner contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Yoshitomo Yonetani.Miracles don't happen every day. But when something impossible happens that seems to be the work of supernatural forces or higher powers, it's the duty of the Assembly of Saints and their agents to investigate. Their job is to determine whether each incident is explainable via previously undisclosed information, a part of some plot to take advantage of the people's faith, or a genuine miraculous event. Priests Josef Kou Hiraga and Roberto Nicholas specialize in unveiling the truth and unearthing secrets that others might wish to keep buried, but when they're sent to Mexico to investigate reports of a virgin birth, they end up in danger of being buried themselves. Murder, demonic summoning and deals with the devil are just the beginning of a new war against the ultimate darkness.Special Features: Clean Opening and Closing animations.

As the US approaches a century since entering World War I, director Sean Stone asks, “What happened to the American Century? What happened to America's ideal of progress?” Americans are feeling squeezed out of the traditional middle-class economy. He links America’s petrodollar economy with its global military predominance, often to secure corporate access to natural resources. Stone makes the argument that “a century of war has taken its toll on the great US republic.” But looking to the future, Stone argues for energy alternatives to the oil-based economy, as well as infrastructure innovations to revive domestic markets. The story is told through narrative and interviews with economists, historians, scientists and innovators.

From the producers of Soul Food and director Tim Story (Ride Along) comes this ''warm, generous'' (The New York Times) tale about a Chicago barbershop where razor-sharp comedy never goes out of style! Starring Ice Cube (Ride Along), Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Sean Patrick Thomas (Save The Last Dance), Eve (xXx), Cedric the Entertainer (Larry Crowne), Troy Garity (Ballers), Michael Ealy (The Perfect Guy) and Keith David (They Live), Barbershop is both a ''sweet, life-affirming movie'' (N.Y. Daily News) and outrageous, bust-a-gut fun!

Calvin (Ice Cube) is a would-be entrepreneur with big plans and running his family's barbershop isn't one of them. But when he impulsively sells the shop to a shady loan shark, he soon realizes just how important the neighborhood parlor is to him and just how far he'll go to get it back!

No matter what rolled in on the tides of time, California surfing buddies Matt, Jack and Leory knew they'd stick together. And that they'd be ready when a rare 20-foot swell hit the coast at last.

Big Wednesday celebrates surfing as much as the most dedicated kid who ever waxed a board. It's also a fascinating 1962-1974 chronicle of friendships and lifestyles in transition. John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn) directs and co-scripts with a passion for the ultimate ride and a truthful feel for those turbulent times. Stars Jan-Michael Vincent and William Katt are accomplished surfers; co-lead Gary Busey (Point Break, 1991) learned for the role. And the vivid camerawork drops you inside awesome barrels of ocean blue.

The Eunice Corporation is on the ground floor of an exciting growth industry, utilizing a memory re-sculpting technique pioneered by eccentric neurosurgeon Rex Martin (Bill Pullman, Independence Day, The Grudge). It envisions nationwide clinics where anyone can lose the hang-ups of an unhappy childhood, a failed romance or a botched career. At Eunice's "New You" outlets, a simple operation will give customers peace of mind. Or it might leave them brain dead. But when Martin refuses to cooperate with Eunice, he soon finds himself plunged into a surreal existence that intertwines dreams and reality. Has Martin slipped over the edge into madness? Or have corporate profit mongers given him a push, making him the guinea pig in his own experiment? To know the answer is to know true terror! Directed by Adam Simon (TV's Salem) with a story by TV's The Twilight Zone writer Charles Beaumont.

An acclaimed early work by Olivier Assayas, the long-unavailable, deeply felt coming-of-age drama Cold Water can at last be seen in the United States. Drawing from his own youthful experiences, Assayas revisits the outskirts of Paris in the early 1970s, telling the story of teenage lovers Gilles (Cyprien Fouquet) and Christine (Virginie Ledoyen), whose rebellions against family and society threaten to tear them apart. The visceral realism of the movie’s narrative and the near experimentalism of its camera work come together effortlessly thanks to a rock soundtrack that vividly evokes the period. With one of the most memorable party sequences ever committed to film as a centerpiece, Cold Water is a heartbreaking immersion in the emotional tumult of being young.

Pascal Marchand, an aspiring poet from Montreal, arrived in the mythical land of Burgundy to work the harvest at age 21. Enchanted by the region, he settled there and embarked on an unlikely path to winemaking stardom. Now over 30 years later, he is renowned as an artist and innovator, finding his inspiration in the ancient techniques of the Cistercian monks who meticulously studied and refined Burgundy's winemaking in the middle ages. Shot over his most difficult year ever, the catastrophic 2016 season which saw devastating frosts, hailstorms and disease in the vineyards, the film is both a love letter and a cautionary tale, as winemakers like Pascal must face the unpredictable and destructive consequences of climate change.

Five years, eight months, 12 days...and counting. That's how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock)—just released from prison—has been concocting the greatest heist of her storied career. She knows what it's going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her former partner-in-crime Lou (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Mindy Kaling), street con Constance (Awkwafina), expert fence Tammy (Sarah Paulson), hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna) and fashion designer Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter). The target is $150 million in diamonds—diamonds that will adorn the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), who will be center stage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. Their plan appears rock solid, but it will need to be flawless if the team is to get in and get away—all in plain sight.

[review_introduction] =>

Franchise sidequels are a risky venture but Ocean's 8 proves Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, and their band of merry thieves can steal the show -- especially in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray! Director Gary Ross keeps an eye on the show-stopping glitz and glamor of the Met Gala while never losing focus what amounts to being a clever and humorous heist flick that sits nicely alongside the previous trilogy. Warner Bros. has delivered a first-rate Blu-ray experience with a beautiful picture and terrific audio mix and some halfway decent assortment of bonus features. If you enjoyed Clooney and his boys give Bullock and her gals a shot. Ocean's 8 is just good popcorn fun. Recommended.

(We've also reviewed this film on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.)

[review_movie] =>

"If you're going to have a problem with stealing, then you're probably not going to like the rest of this conversation."

Debbie Ocean (Sandar Bullock) just got out of jail. She did her time after she got pinned for a scam her ex-boyfriend Claude (Richard Armitage) pulled. In jail, she spent her time wisely and productively, not becoming a reformed member of society, but instead planning a heist so daring her brother Danny wouldn't even attempt - robbing the Met Gala. Specifically, the invaluable diamond necklace actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) is going to wear. To pull it off she's going to need a crack crew including her old pal Lou (Cate Blanchett), the washed-up fashion designer Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter), Amita (Mindy Kaling), Nine Ball (Rihanna), Constance (Awkwafina), and Tammy (Sarah Paulson). With a thousand guests and an expert security team roaming around, what could possibly go wrong?

Ocean's 8

I was a bit apprehensive about another Oceans film added to the mix without any of the original cast with the seemingly arbitrary push for a ladies-only gang of thieves. Thankfully Gary Ross and his co-writer Olivia Milch found a way to make the adventures of Sandra Bullock's Debbie Ocean fit within the world of Clooney's Daniel Ocean. Making them not only siblings but the offspring of a long line of thieves and con artists opens up the Ocean's world beyond the narrowly confined adventures of the previous film. 

While 8 plays on the possibility that Danny has died, it very much leaves that window open for Clooney to make a return should things move along. But not only Clooney, as it's revealed dear old dad had some sticky fingers and is also possibly still alive, he too could come back for a family reunion of sorts. If they go this path I would cast Clint Eastwood (big longshot there) as an older variation of his Thunderbolt and Lightfoot character just for the fun of it. The point is - there's a lot of room left to explore new characters and new crimes. And given the returns on this outing, I'd wager fans would be up for some more thieving fun with Bullock's Debbie Ocean.

Like any good heist movie, the devil's in the details so I don't want to go into any depth there suffice to say that it's pretty intricate and actually a lot of fun to watch the pieces move into place. The whole cast worked for me -- even Rihanna's hacker Nine Ball -- but who probably proved to be the most fun was Helena Bonham Carter as the passé designer Rose Weil. She's the perfect send-up of the fashion industry without being too cartoonish but carries on with an entertainingly comical cluelessness that shows her range when she gets a great character to play with(outside of a Tim Burton flick). Carter really goes full out while Bullock proves herself a stable leader for this ragtag bunch.

If I have a small complaint I would like to see rectified for future installments is that Oceans 8 lacked a sense of urgency to it. Even though 1112, and 13 all were pretty predictable, there was at least a measure of "this plan could go wrong" to drive some tension and excitement. There are a couple moments that fit that bill with 8, but nothing really sticks for long, or at least long enough to make you feel like the plan could actually fall apart. Bullock goes in confident that her plan will work and remains so throughout. Part of the problem with this is I'd say that Ross maybe gave too much of an inside view to the audience of the plans. Each of the previous films left a few elements seemingly up in the air so that when they came together there was a surprise. But if that really is the only complaint I've got, it's not a big one as the rest of the film is a gas and after watching a couple times through now I still enjoy it. It's not as good as, say, Ocean's 11 or 13, but I'd put it above 12 in the franchise scale. There isn't a tragic scene like Julia Roberts pretending to be herself so 8 at least knew of one deep and perilous pitfall to avoid. 

Vital Disc Stats: The Blu-ray

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8 maintains the franchise's integrity by arriving with a strong1080p 2.40:1 transfer. Like its cousins, 8 is a slick-looking production with terrific character, costume, and set design work. A lot of little gags and plot bits hinge on small visual details and this transfer picks up everything beautifully. Details are strong offering up clear facial features. Clothing really catches the eye as there is a full range of intricate costumes employed and once the plot moves to the actual Met Gala, the imagery goes full tilt boogie. Colors are bright and bold with some fantastic primary pop, reds and blues get their day in the sun with some nice bright yellows as well. Black levels are pretty damn strong for the most part, however, when the film sees Lou's club and then later her warehouse hideout I felt like the black levels could look a bit hazy brown rather than true black. It's a small moment in a nearly two-hour movie so it's not a big issue but one of note. Aside from some ever so slight video noise and a couple spots that looked a bit on the soft side, this is a damn good looking image.

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8  gets some great bang for its buck with an on-point Dolby Atmos track. Thankfully, unlike other recent WB releases, you do not have to select the Atmos track over a DTS-HD MA 5.1 track - there isn't a DTS track at all so if you're not Atmos ready, the mix defaults to a Dolby TrueHD 7.1 mix.

If there is one little thing I feel should be addressed at the outset is that I felt like this mix was initially a little on the soft side. Not Disney-soft by any stretch, but I did have to punch it up a notch or two. From then on everything was perfect. Dialogue is clear and crisp throughout without any issues with overlapping audio elements. Sound effects and scoring are lively keeping the film's energy going. The mix is at it's best during busy city scenes, Lou's club, and in particular at the Met Gala - anywhere where there is a constant flurry of activity, the mix handles the sense of imaging and spacing perfectly giving a full object-based soundscape. 

This Atmos mix also makes good use of the verticals. Initially, the extra channels felt like they're really only being used to offer up more space for the mix, but once the movie gets really going and any time there is a lot of activity on the screen they open up and get to work. The Met Gala sequences are a blast as there are tons of people mingling, servers moving, kitchen crews and a lot of camera snaps and shouting press to fill the scenes. There are times where the mix may not call too much attention to itself, but when it counts most this Atmos track delivers.

Ocean's 8

Bonus features for Ocean's 8 may not be plentiful or lengthy but they're at least above average quality. The deleted scenes don't offer much, but each of the production featurettes gives you enough of a behind-the-scenes look at the various aspects of the production to be much better than your average by the numbers EPK talking head filler. 

  • Deleted Scenes (HD 1:53)
  • Reimagining The Met Gala (HD 12:47)
  • A Heist in Heels (HD 11:35)
  • Oceans Team 3.0 (HD 13:20)

Ocean's 8

Sandra Bullock and her crack crew of damsel thieves fit nicely within the cinematic world started by Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney 17 years ago. As a sidequel of sorts, Oceans 8 lets a couple familiar faces come and go while allowing the new cast and crew under the helm of writer and director Gary Ross show they're up to the challenge of pulling off a fun heist flick. There's plenty of room and reason to enjoy this entry and hopefully a couple more adventures with this new team of thieves. Warner Bros. has done a solid job bringing Ocean's 8 to Blu-ray with a great A/V presentation and a decent mix of bonus features. If you're in the mood for some easygoing popcorn-munching fun, give this a spin. Recommended

Arata Kaizaki is a 27-year-old loser with nothing going for him. After quitting his first job in three months, he struggles to get his life started and is stuck relying on his parents for money—not ideal for someone claiming to be an adult. With zero success landing a new job and constantly putting on a façade with friends, he’s forced to accept his fate as a washout. But when he meets Ryo Yoake of the ReLife Research Institute, he’s offered a chance to change everything.

With the help of a mysterious pill, he’s given the opportunity to start over—sort of. Though he’s still technically 27, he has the body of a teenager and the chance to redo the last year of high school. If he’s successful, he’ll have a new job and a new life. But if he screws up, he’ll be another year older and still a complete loser! Is this a promise for change or a set up for more failure?

An affecting human drama of love, loss, and resilience unfolds against the backdrop of World War I. The women of the Paridier farm, under the deft hand of Hortense, the family's matriarch (Nathalie Baye,) must grapple with the workload while the men, including two sons, are off at the front. Hortense reluctantly brings on an outsider, the hard-scrabble teenage orphan, Francine (Iris Bry), to help her daughter Solange (Laura Smet). New tools allow the women to triumph over the land, newfound independence is acquired, yet emotions are stirred especially when the men return from the front on short leaves. Acclaimed filmmaker Xavier Beauvois (Of Gods and Men) revels in the mysteries and beauties of the French countryside, here unravaged by war, with painterly images bathed in natural light, yet keeps his focus on the intricate drama that plays out against the upheaval of the Great War.

Moore stars as Abby Quinn, a young woman who discovers that she and her unborn child play a terrifying part in the chain of events destined to end the world. Already troubled with a difficult pregnancy, Abby grows more distraught once she and her husband (Biehn, The Terminator, Aliens, The Fan) rent their studio apartment to David (Prochnow, In The Mouth Of Madness), an enigmatic drifter. As Abby becomes ensnared in a series of otherworldly experiences, it becomes apparent that David is carrying out the mythical prophecies of Judgment Day ... and that she has been chosen as the instrument of the Seventh Sign. But can Abby — or anyone — stand between the wrath of God and the future of humanity?

[review_introduction] =>

A fresh-faced Demi Moore stars in the Biblical apocalypse thriller The Seventh Sign in which one expectant mother takes on the end of the world. With a solid cast and interesting themes, it’s no wonder the film has a legion of fans. Unfortunately, it never transcends the clunky storytelling that ultimately keeps it from reaching greatness. Scream Factory’s Blu-ray release of The Seventh Sign provides a respectable A/V presentation with a new set of new bonus features sure to please longtime fans. Recommended.

“You are the seventh seal.”

If you lived through the cable boom of the 90’s, you’ve probably seen The Seventh Sign. Named after the seven signs of the impending apocalypse in the Book of Revelation, the film was practically on every movie channel along with the likes of The Beastmaster. It was produced during the late 80’s in an era of “Satanic Panic” where everything from heavy metal to arthouse films was supposedly driving people into Devil worshipping cults. Fortunately, this film eschews the demonic themes and instead focuses on Biblical texts and the sacrifices required for devout religious faith. Revisiting this old standard, I was pleasantly surprised at how different this movie would be if it were made today. Could a film like The Seventh Sign tackle the Biblical apocalypse without channeling a million jump-scares or whiplash-generating CGI? 

Agnostic expectant mother Abby (Demi Moore) goes in for a routine sonogram then puts down a deposit on a swanky preschool. Her husband Russell (Michael Biehn) is a lawyer in the midst of a case involving a teenager with Down Syndrome called the “Word of God Killer.” Growing concerned for her baby Abby begins seeing visions and experiencing omens. Russell turns her away as being just another worried mother-to-be. We cut to a stoic figure (Jürgen Prochnow) named David Bannon who is bringing about the Biblical apocalypse by breaking the seals on prophecies which wreck death and destruction in their wake. Hot on his trail is Father Lucci (Peter Friedman) sent from the Vatican to investigate claims of the prophecies coming true. When Abby rents out her garage apartment it’s David who signs the lease. Snooping through his things she believes that David is somehow ushering in the apocalypse and her unborn child is in grave danger.  

The Seventh Sign is an underrated gem of a film. Combining late 80’s religious hysteria with a moody suburban lens on religious faith the film finds a cozy pocket between character drama and horror/thriller. Those with an acute knowledge of Christianity and Judaism will see how the film picks various elements from the two in order to craft the story. Instead of taking the Roland Emmerich approach to the end of days, Hungarian director Carl Schultz takes a subtler course by using sympathetic characters to drive the story rather than mass hysteria and bloated action set pieces. Sure it could be a budgetary restraint, but it’s refreshing. To see Abby channel surfing as the world is crumbling around her paints an eerie portrait about our disconnect with the world. Unfortunately, some convoluted plotting turns an otherwise straightforward Good vs. Evil dynamic into a confusing mess. A number of subplots and subtexts are hinted at but never explored fully. Also, too many pertinent details are revealed in the final scenes leaving viewers in bewilderment as the climax closes in quickly. It’s unfortunate that Father Lucci’s story is sacrificed in this manner. I’d love to give more details but I don’t want to spoil anything! 

Demi Moore’s performance is solid throughout. She handles the weight of the proceedings confidently if a tad on a melodramatic side. Michael Biehn turns in a hot-headed performance as Russell, providing some much-needed tension. While the character is mostly forgettable till the end Biehn should be commended for adding some meat to the part. Jürgen Prochnow’s icy intensity cuts through the screen keeping the audience constantly on edge. It’s a great performance from an exceptional character actor. The great John Heard has a bit-part towards the end as a Reverend that caught me off guard; for a few moments, he steals the show and adds a bit of humor to an otherwise intense story. 

As we’re taken on Abby’s nightmarish journey with the mysterious stranger in her garage the breadth of humanity begins to unfold as the apocalypse draws near. It’s no coincidence that the weight of the world rests on a mother’s shoulders. As a parent watching this film I was moved by the story’s climax and sat in wonderment as the credits rolled. The Seventh Sign is a memorable film that portrays the sacrifices needed for faith and belief.

The Seventh Sign is presented in 1080p with an Anamorphic 2.35:1 aspect ratio. The transfer looks very clean with film grain evident but a bit of noise permeating the image at times. The color palette is pretty dismal and unmistakably 80’s as we follow Abby around her life, but when the film takes us to dream sequences and far-flung destinations we see vivid life show through this HD transfer. Unfortunately, the resolution exaggerates the boring 80’s drab color palette leaving the viewer praying for more outdoor scenes! No damage apparent on the image. Fine detail is visible and consistent from the individually groomed hairs on Demi’s eyebrows to the intricate costume textures on the Roman soldier. Skin tones appear even throughout the feature. Primaries aren’t vivid but pronounced when necessary. Black levels are solid without evidence of crushing. Overall, the visual presentation is very good here with a respectable image quality. 

[review_audio_picture_id] => 85287 [review_audio] =>

Supplied with only a DTS HD-MA 2.0 audio mix, The Seventh Sign sounds remarkably good. The track accentuates all the nuances hidden within the texture like the creepy Gregorian chants, ominous echoes, and other foreboding elements. Dialogue is clear and clean without hiss detected. Balance is consistent through the sound field with the work handled confidently by the center and front channels. Low frequencies resonate strongly within the mix and are tested during the earthquake scenes. Overall, it's a nicely groomed audio track that gets the job done. I’d keep the volume level at medium as the atmospherics and scoring really heighten the experience of watching the film. English subtitles available.

Four decades into an already legendary career, Terrence Malick realized his most rapturous vision to date, tracing a story of childhood, wonder, and grief to the outer limits of time and space. Reaching back to the dawn of creation, Malick sets a story of boyhood memories on a universal scale, charting the coming of age of an awestruck child (newcomer Hunter McCracken) in Texas in the 1950s, as he learns to navigate the extremes of nature and grace represented by his bitter, often tyrannical father (Brad Pitt) and his ethereal, nurturing mother (Jessica Chastain, in her breakout role). Shot with nimble attention to life’s most fleeting moments by Emmanuel Lubezki, the Palme d’Or–winning The Tree of Life marks the intimately personal, cosmically ambitious culmination of Malick’s singular approach to filmmaking.

[review_movie] =>

It's difficult to encapsulate Terrence Malick's 'The Tree of Life' into a simple movie review. It quite possibly defies any conventional review rating scale, because of its uniqueness. Like a piece of art hanging in a gallery, the feelings, meanings, and morals represented are completely subjective to the viewer. Malick has crafted an experience that isn't so much a rigid narrative, as it is a stream of consciousness about the wonders of life -- big and small.

I'm not a universal Malick fan. To me, 'The New World' is one of the most sleep-inducing films out there. However, when he gets it right, he really gets it right. It's almost impossible to simply say what the movie is about, since it's about everything. Its main storyline has to do with the O'Brien family and their three sons growing up in the 50s. Their father (Brad Pitt) is a strict authoritarian figure who pushes his kids to be "better." Or at least what he views as better. Like so many children, they are able to easily spot the hypocrisies in their dad's actions and question his whole method of parenting.

The oldest child, Jack (Hunter McCracken), has taken it upon himself to rebel. Through a series of scenes we see Jack grow and change, becoming more and more bitter as he realizes that his dad is a flawed human being.

Countering the father's severe nature is a loving mother (Jessica Chastain) who is a shelter for the children when dad flips out. She and her husband are constantly at odds on what's the best way to teach their children. She hugs them close, while he teaches them about violence and getting ahead in the world at any cost. It's an interesting dichotomy that is truly the crux of the movie. The beginning opens with a voiceover explaining that there are two ways through this world: grace and nature. With the help of the special feature on this set, we come to realize that while the mother exudes the theme of grace, their father is nature. She tries to build them up, while he relentlessly tears them down. She's cool and calm, he's oppressive.

'Tree of Life' isn't your normal film. Not at all. The camera isn't so much telling as it is observing. Many of the scenes seem unplanned like the actors were told to interact with each other and the camera would just be there witnessing the event. In this way Malick is able to capture some of the more powerful, yet subtle reactions children have. We're able to perceive each scene in our own unique way. The family interaction captured here is real, poignant, and extremely emotional. It's a distinctive level of humanistic understanding that I haven't seen in any other movie I've ever watched.

Juxtaposed against this family and their real-life troubles is a creation story of sorts. A sweeping set of images placed strategically by Malick to give us a sense of awe and wonder about life. How insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things. How awesome nature is and how everything in the universe is somehow connected. Do I think he goes a little overboard with the abstract imagery? At times, yes I do. While some of it is amazing to look at, I found myself wondering what this has to do with anything, or if it's actually meant to mean something anyway. Like I said, a work of art will elicit a thousand different opinions and feelings from a thousand different people, and this film is no different. One scene may impact someone while it leaves another feeling empty and cold. That's okay, though, because after seeing this film again I'm convinced there's no right or wrong way to view it. It's just there, like an abstract painting hanging on a wall. You're free to make up your own mind regarding its merit because it forces you to.

One thing that I will say definitively about 'Tree of Life' is that out of all the movies I saw this year, this one made me think about it the most after I'd walked out of the theater. Months later I found myself wondering about certain scenes and about the feelings I felt after watching it. It's a cinematic journey that definitely sticks with you.

The Blu-ray: Vital Disc Stats

This 20th Century Fox release comes complete with a 50-GB Blu-ray Disc, a DVD copy of the movie, and a third disc for the Digital Copy. It's housed in a standard Blu-ray keepcase with a swinging arm with two disc hubs. There is a slipcover provided which has the same artwork as the front cover, but switches it up a bit for the back. It's indicated on the back that this is a Region A release.

[review_video_picture_id] => 24859 [review_video] =>

Before I get into this part of the review I want to preface this with a quick note. Most of this disc is completely and utterly demo-worthy. It's simply one of the best looking Blu-rays I've ever seen. However, I do have one minor squabble with it which brings it down to a 4.5 on the star scale. Don't worry, though, it's just because our scoring doesn't allow for a 4.9, if it did I would've used it. With our current grading scale I felt like I had to mark it down a bit. Just know that the majority of this Blu-ray is simply five star material.

'The Tree of Life' is such a visually stunning movie. Most of the movie relies on its visuals as there are long stretches without any principle dialogue. Just sweeping images of stunning scenery which gleam to perfection.

Color here is absolutely splendid. I don't remember the last time where I was so gob-smacked by a movie's color representation. The moment the camera swings upward and catches the perfect geometrically spaced stained glass windows in the church is one of the many moments where I felt like pausing it and trying to print out that one screenshot to frame it. That's how beautiful this movie looks. Almost every frame could be paused, printed, and hung in a frame.

Fine detail is optimum. Check out the image of Mr. O'Brien holding the foot of his newborn in his hands. Every soft line of the baby's foot is visible, contrasted against the hard lines of his father's hands. The facial details of the actors are unparalleled. I mean, you can literally see the fine peach-fuzz running down Jessica Chastain's neck as the setting sun shines through illuminating even the tiniest hair. Textures! Oh boy the textures! Take a look at the close-ups of the kids' denim jeans, or the woven texture of their father's suit, or the flattering fabric of their mother's dresses.

Shadows are deeply satisfying. Many times Malick focuses on the shadows being cast by the human figures instead of the humans themselves. They are dark and resolute, with perfectly defined edges. Shadows add a striking depth to the visual design. Even the CG effects like the random dinosaurs (yes, CG dinosaurs in a Malick film), look fantastically designed. The high-def treatment only enriches the animation instead of pointing out its faults.

With all this adoration you have got to be wondering where my caveat comes in right? Well, here it is. This is my one, very minor quarrel with the visual design, a technical issue which should impact the score somewhat. During the creation/space scenes there are numerous fade-ins and fade-outs. As the movie adjusts from one cosmic image after another, slight banding is fairly noticeable on the outskirts of the objects coming into or vanishing from view. This really is the only drawback to this otherwise masterful video presentation. Like I said, I would have given it a 4.9 if possible, but because of the limitations of a set scoring system a 4.5 will do. Just know that besides the minor banding issues, this is one of the most truly awe-inspiring, visually stunning Blu-ray video presentations this side of 'Baraka .'

[review_audio_picture_id] => 24860 [review_audio] =>

I'm thinking back on all the Blu-rays I've ever watched and I don't think any have ever started with a note from the filmmakers saying for the best audio experience that they recommend listening to the movie "loud." It makes perfect sense. You won't feel the full weight of this much nuanced soundtrack by just allowing it to play at your normal volume level. Crank this baby up and let its incredibly complex sound design wash over you.

Fox has provided a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 mix for this release. Believe me when I say this, you're going to want all eight of those channels to be able to get the full effect of this film. From the opening scene you can distinctly hear waves crashing. Full-bodied waves that fill the whole front part of the soundfield. The smooth crashing of the waves seamlessly ebbs and flows through the channels creating a very realistic experience.

The soundtrack is full of memorable classical pieces from Brahms to Mozart which reverberate through all seven speakers. This music is meant to envelope you in the scenes and it most certainly does. It sucks you in as the symphonic sounds are clearly defined with wonderful fidelity.

Directionality is key as every scene is almost like we're right in the middle of it. We hear people talking off to the side in the side speakers, while other kids chatter up front about something completely different. A town waterhole is filled to the brim with townsfolk milling about and their children frolicking in the water. Each individual voice is distinct and intelligible, even when all the kids in the group are talking simultaneously like they so often do.

The subwoofer also isn't left out at all. The celestial scenes are packed with ominous LFE. As a small planet passes by what appears to be a giant fireball it's easy to feel the surging bass being produced. When volcanoes erupt, the sudden force was enough to terrifyingly jar my sleeping dog awake, causing her to move further away from the television.

Dialogue is always intelligible, even the whispers -– of which there are many. This is one of the reasons you need that volume turned up loud. There are so many hushed lines of dialogue that you'll miss something if it isn't cranked up a bit. What is very telling to me about this mix is that there are a few times where a sound or two are thrown in without any warning. At the beginning after the O'Brien's find out that their son has died in the war, the camera pans through a forest gazing at the treetops and you can hear Mrs. O'Brien scream. It's a muted scream, but it's delicate touch isn't lost in the slightest.

Just like the video, the audio here is breathtakingly amazing. Demo material all the way around.

This is where the release falters. They could've provided endless amounts of special features for this, but there's only one included. Oh how I wish there was a commentary or some kind of picture-in-picture track to go with this.

    • Exploring the 'Tree of Life' (HD, 30 min.) – This is a bit of a strange making-of featurette. In perfect mysterious Malick fashion he doesn't show up at all, but directors like David Fincher and Christopher Nolan are on hand to talk extensively about Malick's influence on cinema and on them. At times it feels a little promotional in nature, and it is indeed fairly heavy with clips from the film, but it does show a good bit of behind-the-scenes footage which is really nice. It also explains the origins of the movie and the free-wheeling way it was shot. Many times Malick gave the kids a simple outline for the scene and then let them go do what they wanted to do. Other times they just filmed the kids playing on their own. If you're a fan of the movie you should watch this feature, but if you're like me you'll probably be sad that there isn't more.

[review_final_thoughts_picture_id] => 24862 [review_final_thoughts] =>

I really wish I didn't have to assign a finite score to 'The Tree of Life.' It's simply an experience. An expedition into the deepest human emotions. I don't think I've ever seen a movie so aptly encapsulate childhood and the way we remember things. We don't remember our pasts in a linear fashion, just fragments here and there. One memory leads to another and so on.

The video and audio are about the best you're going to find on Blu-ray. The banding was a tiny bit of a problem, but when you compare it to the whole it's hardly noticeable. The fact is you'll be blown away by the audio and visual presentations of this disc. 'The Tree of Life' is highly recommended.

From Oscar-nominated director Shuhei Morita (Best Animated Short Film, Possessions) and the studio that brought you Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho comes a twisted new series that blurs the line between man and monster.

Ken Kaneki is a loner. In a world where ghouls—human-like creatures who survive on human flesh—and people are at war, his biggest concern is which novel to pick up next. But when a date with the beautiful and mysterious Rize turns deadly, a life-saving operation horrifyingly transforms him into a human-ghoul hybrid. Now, Kaneki lives on the edge of two worlds: afraid to interact with humans out of fear of his thirst for blood, and being hunted by ghouls who want to feast on his uniquely bred flesh. Can he find his place in a society where it’s hunt or be hunted?

Human Zoos tells the shocking story of how thousands of indigenous peoples were put on public display in America in the early decades of the twentieth century. Often touted as missing links between man and apes, these native peoples were harassed and demeaned. Their public display was arranged with the enthusiastic support of the most elite members of the scientific community, and it was promoted uncritically by America's leading newspapers. This award-winning documentary explores the heartbreaking story of what happened, shows how African-American ministers and other people of faith tried to push back, and reveals how some people today are still drawing on Social Darwinism in order to dehumanize others. The film also explores the tragic story of eugenics in America, the effort to breed human beings based on Darwinian principles. To learn more, visit the HumanZoos.org website.

Some nights are just pure magic! In October of 2017, hard rock titans Alter Bridge took to the stage of the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London for two very special headline shows. Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips treated the capacity crowds to selections from their entire musical catalog. The set list included some of the band’s biggest hits; rarities and even a few songs the band had never previously performed live. Adding another career first for the band, Alter Bridge was joined on stage by conductor Simon Dobson and the 52-piece Parallax Orchestra. Together, everyone on stage during those two extraordinary nights treated the combined crowd of over 10,000 fans to an unforgettable music experience. Now those two performances have been combined in to one full length, epic concert that is to be shared with fans around the globe in Alter Bridge: Live At The Royal Albert Hall.

In 2016, Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman brought together their incredible talents and long experience of working in Yes to take to the road for a series of concerts celebrating Yes’ musical legacy of the seventies, eighties and nineties. Yes featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman toured first in North America and then brought their live show to the UK in early 2017, including this performance captured at the Manchester Apollo. The band are in superb form in front of a sell-out crowd who are clearly loving every minute of the show which includes classic tracks such as Roundabout, Owner Of A Lonely Heart, And You And I, Hold On, Heart Of The Sunrise, Rhythm Of Love, I’ve Seen All Good People and many more.
