Shout! Factory just released a new Collectors' Edition Blu-ray of one of the most underrated efforts from the golden age of action movies, pick up Trespass the next chance you get.
Does the "Unrated Director's Cut" of Straight Outta Compton that hits Blu-ray next week fix the film's third act problems?
It’s still hilarious, possibly even more so than its predecessor through sheer volume of jokes alone, but 22 Jump Street manages to be rushed, over thought, and even kind of smug via a brand of meta humor that makes its tone almost inscrutable.
Forget that Ride Along is so cliched there are no surprises or that buddy cop movies are already too cliched to begin with. Despite the best efforts of Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, Tim Story's sanitized take on the genre is just too genial to be much fun.
Based on the laughably implausible and cheesy late 1980s Fox television drama, 21 Jump Street fires perfectly on all cylinders to create an experience that will appeal wonderfully to fans of Hot Fuzz and the Bad Boys films.
Despite being the mind behind the brilliant L.A. Confidential, writer James Ellroy's work rarely transitions well to the big screen. Much like graphic novelist Frank Miller, Ellroy needs a director who can temper his sometimes unnecessarily over the top and formulaic material into a watchable package. With Ellroy’s latest outing Rampart, director Oren Moverman show’s that he’s simply not up to the challenge leading to film that feels wholly indistinguishable from the author’s past big screen outings about dirty Los Angeles cops.
