Cannes 2019: Festival Close, PARASITE, Tarantino and more!

That Shelf Managing Editor Jason Gorber appeared on Turkish TV to talk all things Cannes – from the Palme d'Or winner Parasite, director Quentin Tarantino's latest bit of magic, and some of the thematic elements that tied the films of the 2019 Cannes Film Festival together.

The Revenant Review

Is The Revenant the movie that finally earns Leonardo DiCaprio his Oscar? Maybe, but it's also so much more than that.

Home Entertanment Round-Up: 4/7/14

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

The Wolf of Wall Street Review

Martin Scorsese's best and most thoroughly insane film in years, The Wolf of Wall Street isn't for everyone and is bound to be misread by people not willing to think about the rampant greed, avarice, and drug use on display, but for those who can stomach the breakneck paced three hours with one of the worst human beings in screen history, it's a very rewarding experience.

The Great Gatsby Review

While still technically an alright movie overall and somewhat subdued by its director's usual flashy standards, Baz Luhrmann's big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby still proves that there's something completely unfilmable about the source material in spite of some pitch perfect casting and stylistic choices.

Django Unchained Review

It's not Quentin Tarantino's most accomplished film, but Django Unchained benefits from a slew of excellent performances and a playful looseness that his films often forego in favour of more elaborate plot structuring.
