Bourne Supremacy, The “The Bourne Supremacy” looks great on high-def DVD, there’s no two ways about it. Even in an opening scene which is practically black on black, details are clear without sacrificing the mood the darkness is intended to bring. Scenes in India are sharp and detailed with green, as common in high definition, a standout color. This disc also includes plentiful extras, a beautifully-engineered sound track and an exciting story. It’s hard to resist, so don’t bother to try. This sequel to “The Bourne Identity” pulls off the rarest of tricks for a sequel: it’s better than the original, and that was quite good itself. As directed by Paul Greengrass, “Supremacy” (the title’s meaning is never explained) is more realistically filmed than “Identity,” which had a sleeker, more machine-tooled look, which contrasted with the fragmentary handling of some of the action scenes. Here, the action scenes were shot with multiple cameras, often hand-held, and though ...

Army of Darkness Housed in a transparent red plastic box that designates a high-definition DVD (as opposed to the transparent blue plastic box that denotes Blu-Ray) comes yet another video release of Sam Raimi’s “Army of Darkness.” This must be a new and improved plastic box, as it has a hinged fastener, evidently intended to slow down sneak thieves. Unaccountably, this release has none of the extras that graced earlier DVDs of the movie—but it does include a standard DVD print on the reverse side. But why? If someone wants a standard DVD, surely they’d choose one of the other extras-laden versions; if they want the high-definition version, what’s the point of having the standard version? (The title, by the way, is actually “Bruce Campbell Vs. Army of Darkness.” That being said, there is a point this time to releasing this film in high definition. It wasn’t a lavish production, but Raimi fills the screen with detail. ...

Troy “Beware Greeks bearing gifts,” became a saying thousands of years ago. Historians today trace it to tales of the Trojan War, which may not have really happened. Or if it did, not all the details presented by the blind poet Homer were part of the true story. Specifically, the saying was aimed at the Trojan Horse Odysseus created near the end of the Trojan War that allowed the Greeks to invade the impenetrable city of Troy. Oddly enough, this point—which comes in late in the movie, “Troy”—somehow makes the story of Achilles and Hector seem less real (even without the gods and goddesses), taking away from all the events that have led up to this part of the film and making it more of a story. In all the tales I remember reading as a kid, the story of the wooden horse fooling the Trojans was truly cool. However, after watching the movie, ...

Tim Burton's Corpse Bride Director Tim Burton is known for his view askew when it comes to movies. He broke out with “Beetle Juice” and slammed through the first two Batman movies of the 1980s, one of which was well-received and the other arrived amid controversy. Throughout his career, Burton has always followed his own interests and passions. He gave us “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and the latest incarnation of Willie Wonka, starring Johnny Depp, an actor who is just as well known for his own bizarre acting. Burton has an ongoing relationship with Depp. They did “Edward Scissorhands”, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” together, and are scheduled to reunite for the “Sweeney Todd” movie musical. They work well together, each of them bringing brilliance to their various roles in a movie. “Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride” is a simple story of innocent love, and you could describe and what happens in a ...

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines It is several years after “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” and John Connor (Nick Stahl) is now a nomad. He travels around the country alone, works odd jobs and never stays in one place for too long. While it appears as if his and his mother’s actions in the previous film have prevented the global apocalypse, his nightmares and instincts tell him that doom lies just around the corner. Appearing from the future are the “TX” (Loken) intent on killing all of John Connor’s seconds-in-command, including Catherine Brewster (Danes), the young daughter of an important military general (Andrews) who is being pressured to upload a program called “Skynet” into the worldwide web in order to eradicate a world-wide computer virus. On the TX’s trail is another T-101 (Schwarzenegger), intent on assuring the future of John Connor and Catherine Brewster. Jonathan Mostow’s sequel follows the pattern set by the previous films: a central chase filled ...
