It's Tuesday and that means That Shelf will be rounding up the latest movie, TV, and video game trailers. This week we've got Bodied, Aquaman, VICE, and Star Trek: Discovery season two.
Last year's surprise award contender The Big Short comes to Blu-ray this week with some nice extras giving insight into this odd film that found comedy in tragedy.
The nominations for the 88th Academy Awards were announced this morning. Were there any surprises? Who made the cut? Who was left out?
The Big Short finds the absurd in the collapse of America's economy and delivers insight through comedy.
Dork Shelf and Paramount Pictures want to give you and a friend a chance to see an advanced screening of The Big Short in Toronto!
We kick off this Home Entertainment round-up with two Martin Scorsese comedies - The King of Comedy and The Wolf of Wall Street - before looking at new releases for Sam Raimi's Darkman, Howard Hawks' El Dorado, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and Paul Schrader's remake of Cat People. There's also some B-movie goodness with looks at Alec Baldwin in The Shadow, the 1980s horror flick Night of the Demons, and the made for TV 1973 thriller The Horror at 37,000 Feet
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is to Anchorman what Ghostbusters 2 was to Ghostbusters. It’s an inferior, but lighthearted and often very funny retread of ground that had been previously covered much better in the original. Sure, it’s often hilarious (in the first half, anyway) and the cast jumps back into their roles quite nicely, but is it a good movie? Nope.
SWEET ODIN'S RAVEN! Enter for a chance to win a pair of passes to an advance screening of the classiest movie of the year, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues in Toronto, Ottawa or Montreal on Monday, December 16th, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Paramount Pictures.
Our head film critic disliked Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters so much it drove him to have a crisis of faith/near mental breakdown from how tone deaf, unfunny, and laboured the whole affair was.
