Collateral has held up brilliantly. A great film at the time of its release, Michael Mann’s seductively unsettling crime thriller has to my mind emerged as one of the the 21st century’s best pieces of pop entertainment.
V for Vendetta plays a little differently in 2020 than it did in 2006, that’s for certain.
Yet the kinetic fury of Snyder’s box office smash cannot be denied. It’s numerous flaws notwithstanding, this is still a rousingly entertaining spectacle, and watching it again I was struck by just how absorbing I continue to find 300 to be.
Sherlock Holmes is one of Guy Ritchie’s better movies and is astonishingly easy to watch multiple times. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are a terrific team, while the comedy, mystery and action elements meld rather nicely for the majority of the picture’s 128-minute running time.
I still do not like Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
Scoob! is a decidedly mixed bag, and while it was moderately fun to see a potential Hanna-Barbera universe take shape, this film is still too slapdash and rough around the edges to be consistently entertaining for any viewer over the age of eight or so.
Holy freaking cow the technical aspects of this 4K Ultra HD version of Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds are nothing less than dazzling. From an audio-visual standpoint, this disc is perfect.
Let me be frank, if you’re thinking about buying this new edition of A Quiet Place you’re either grabbing this title for the first time, upgrading from the previous Blu-ray or are a collector of the Mondo X SteelBook line. These are all excellent reasons to pick this release up.
The 4K Ultra HD release of Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island is magnificent. The film has never looked or sounded better. I just wish I enjoyed watching it more.
