Constantine Created by Alan Moore, John Totleben and Steve Bissette in an issue of the comic book “Swamp Thing” in 1985, John Constantine began life as a sarcastic and cynical Englishman who knew a lot about magic and the beings that wielded it. With his trademark trench coat and smoking Silk Cut cigarettes, Constantine wandered through several issues of “Swamp Thing”, made brief stopovers in other titles, and finally got his own comic series under the title, “Hellblazer”. There have been over two hundred comic magazines published so far, and the series remains one of the premiere titles of DC Comics’ Vertigo line. In the comic books, Constantine doesn’t try to be the hero. He’s totally out for himself, either to gain something for himself, help a friend he can’t live without (and the attrition rate among Constantine’s friends is incredible) or learn something about magic or a demon that he didn’t previously know. ...

Blazing Saddles 1874. A railroad expansion project is forced to change its route when the crew hits a patch of quicksand. Realizing the new route will bring the railroad through the quiet town of Rock Ridge, corrupt politico Hedley Lamarr (Korman) plots to drive the residents out and snatch the land for himself. When Lamarr’s railroad goons (lead by Pickens and Gilliam) launch several raids on the town’s residents, the simple folk turn to governor LePetomaine (Brooks) for help. The governor, who is in on the plot, sends them Bart (Little), a black railroad worker jailed for hitting Pickens with a shovel. While the townspeople’s reception for the new sheriff turns predictably violent, Bart proves a sharp and resourceful fellow and he makes a quick, unorthodox escape. Joining together with the town drunk and ex-gunfighter the Waco Kid (Wilder), Bart endeavors to save the town from the evil railroad men and hopefully gain some appreciation and ...

Unforgiven In 1880, a couple of years after the death of his wife, notorious intemperate murderer William Munny (Eastwood) is approached by a young gunman (Wolvett) to join him in claiming a thousand dollar bounty on two cowboys who have disfigured a prostitute. Although initially reluctant, Munny relents and brings along his old partner, Ned (Freeman). While Munny used to be an evil man, marriage to his wife reformed him, and it’s been over ten years since he’s killed another human being. As they head toward the town of Big Whiskey, Munny finds himself haunted by visions of his dark deeds and uneasy about the job ahead. Meanwhile in Big Whiskey, arrogant Sheriff Little Bill (Hackman) takes brutal steps to assure that potential assassins steer far away, but a dark inevitable confrontation looms large. Eastwood’s reflective and powerful western is a well-crafted tale of violence and its repercussions. “Unforgiven” is nearly existential, with great emphasis ...

Training Day Only a small handful of HD-DVDs have been released to date and it seems there is a fairly wide range of picture quality in the available titles.. Some of the films including “Apollo 13,” “GoodFellas” and “Full Metal Jacket” have a grainy, washed out look, however most of the films that have were filmed recently such as “Million Dollar Baby,” “The Last Samurai” and “Doom” have spectacular picture quality. “Training Day,” starring Denzel Washington (who won the Oscar for this) and Ethan Hawke is one of those films that falls right in the middle in terms of picture quality, having been created in 2001. The transfer to HD DVD, when viewed in 1080i resolution on my Toshiba HD DVD player, is very good however the colors are a tad muted, even on my ISF calibrated JVC H-DILA monitor. The film is an entertaining yet uneven foray into the world of ...

Swordfish At its heart, “Swordfish” is a caper, an action-packed thriller of theft told between the lines of good and evil involving cops and robbers. At one point Gabriel Shear (portrayed with easy flamboyant egotism by John Travolta) tells Stan Jobson (Hugh Jackson) about Houdini and the art of misdirection. The movie warns viewers fairly that not all is as it seems, but somehow the over-the-top action and tension masks those secrets until the final scenes are played out. HD Video Resolution: “Swordfish” is indicative of the HD DVDs that are being unleashed on the entertainment shelves. Packed with the extra pizzazz of true high-definition, the video quality of the movie is nothing less than amazing. The slo-mo detonation of the walking Claymore mines in Chapter 2 demonstrates the explosive nature of the HD video format. In Chapter 4, the red dress worn by Ginger (Halle Berry) when she meets Stan (Jackman) for the ...
