Horrible Bosses (Totally Inappropriate Edition) (2011) As seems to be all too true with comedies, “Horrible Bosses” is destined to be a “love it or hate it” film.  I for one fall in the hate it category.  I love comedies just as much as the next person, but this isn’t comedy done right to me. There is one law of comedies for me.  Do not allow me to think of what would really happen in the characters’ situations.  This comedy has failed in that regard more than any other film I have seen in recent memory.  Yes, I get that this is a film and it is a no-nonsense comedy, but that doesn’t excuse the behavior.  When a film basis comedy on things that actually happen, it becomes too much a basis for a drama trying desperately to be a comedy. In “Horrible Bosses,” the three main characters ...

O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) At long last, Joel and Ethan Coen film fans can rejoice in the Blu-ray release of “O Brother, Where Art Thou?.”  Arguably, it is one of their best films, but as a Coen fan they are really hard to ranked in order of best to worst. “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” and is a smart, witting and musical masterpiece.  Unlike “The Big Lebowski,” “OBWAT” was a bigger mainstream success, garnering Oscar nominations.  Chances are that you are already a fan of the film, but if you are looking for an in-depth review of the film itself please visit our review by clicking here. The star of this Blu-ray release is the video transfer.  It is minted from a brand new digital restoration print.  “OBWAT” is the first film in the United States to have been completely created in the digital domain.  That ...

Big Lebowski, The (1998) Film: You must have been living under a rock if you have never heard of “The Big Lebowski.”  From its initial releases the film became an instant cult classic.  This is perhaps the Coen brothers most notable film, and certainly their funniest.  And finally, the Dude has arrived on Blu-ray. For an in-depth review of the film, visit the HD DVD review of the film here. This Blu-ray release is presented in a Limited Edition, digibook style case.  The book contains several pages in glossy color providing information on the creation and impact of the film.  Trivia questions are also within the pages. Video: The video quality of this Blu-ray release is the same as that of its HD DVD counterpart.  The image quality is quite natural with the film grain intact, yielding great textures.  Colors are solid, never slipping into the overly vibrant realm.  ...

Be Cool (2005) “Be Cool” is a sequel to “Get Shorty,” arriving a decade after the original.  And while the initial reviews of the film at the time were only so-so, I found the sequel to be surprisingly entertaining.  In fact, I dare say I liked it better than the original. Sure, there are a lot of downers to the film, but looking at the positive side of those negatives makes the film decent.  Many might say the performances are weak, but I found Thurman’s and Travolta’s performances to be spot on with the tongue and cheek nature of the film.  That being said, coupled with my distaste for all things Vince Vaughn, his performance darn near ruined the entire film.  Sure his character was built as annoying, but Vaughn took annoying to a whole new level. The sequel trades in the movie business for ...

Hall Pass (Enlarged Edition) (2011) It is clear from the outset that "Hall Pass" is a "Hangover" spin-off.  And as with al Farrelly Brothers' films since their post-early days, the film is a big flop.  I just couldn't believe the lack of laughs coming my way.  I expected, and I'm sure most of you did as well, a bunch more hilarity. Of course I don't speak for everyone, but the consensus I found is that "Hall Pass" is unfunny.  You may chuckle here or there, but that isn't a good sign for a comedy.  The film is undeveloped and doesn't even approach the beginnings of the film's potential. Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis star as friends Rick and Fred.  They are middle-aged men who never grew-up.  They are each married but only have their heads turned by other women.  I'm sorry, but are you telling me that ...
