Covering Music, Movies, Interviews
Monday Oct 26, 2020 00:00 AM ET
Ensemble Thanksgiving-themed rom-com is headlined by Malin Ackerman, Kat Dennings, and Jane Seymour. It's a lightweight outing that some might find amusing.
Tuesday Oct 20, 2020 45:00 PM ET
A intriguing spin on the 'found footage' subgenre, this horror-satire pokes fun at the attention-seeking world of live-streaming social media "influencers." Some of it works, some of it doesn't.
Tuesday Oct 20, 2020 00:00 PM ET
An absorbing and tense psychological horror film, shot in England, featuring 'Game of Thrones' star Maisie Williams at the center of an outstanding ensemble cast.
Monday Oct 19, 2020 45:00 PM ET
Don't be deterred by its premature cancellation - AMC's vampire-ish series NOS4A2 is worth watching (and re-watching). Start with Season One, get hooked, and then proceed to the newly-released Season Two.
Sunday Oct 18, 2020 40:00 PM ET
Another gem from the Stones' live vault, this Lorne Michaels-produced concert was originally a pay-per-view broadcast.
Sunday Oct 4, 2020 35:00 PM ET
"If you can't trust your mind, trust your heart," as the teen romance story arrives on Digital on November 10 and Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand a week later. Directed by Thor Freudenthal.
Sunday Sep 27, 2020 35:00 PM ET
Feather-light romantic drama based on self-help piffle. But it's not the worst way to pass an hour and a half, especially if you like Katie Holmes. Or if you read Rhonda Byrne's 2006 best-seller upon which it's based.
Friday Sep 11, 2020 55:00 PM ET
As a showcase for Hugh Jackman's reliable acting skill, this 'Education' is a must-see. But the real-life story has much more depth to mine and ultimately the film adaptation comes up a bit short.
Sunday Aug 2, 2020 20:00 PM ET
Chalk it up to another victory for Paul McCartney with this 13th entry in his long-running Archive Collection. This is one of his finest hours and it deserves this kind of extravagant package. Demos, outtakes, B-sides, video content, and extensive liner notes abound.
Sunday Jul 26, 2020 40:00 PM ET
While this 2018 AMC series is by no means comprehensive, it's an entertaining, casual exploration of key themes that run through many of the most popular and beloved sci-fi films of the last 40 or 50 years.
Wednesday Dec 11, 2019 00:00 PM ET
Alleviate the off-season blues by revisiting the 2019 World Series in this MLB-produced feature-length documentary. A true classic among Fall Classics is recapped neatly.
Wednesday Dec 11, 2019 25:00 PM ET
Nearly everything that made the first chapter so memorable is mostly absent from this overly long, unfocused retread that essentially puts the adult versions of the first film's kids through the same paces.
Thursday Dec 5, 2019 20:00 PM ET
If you celebrated the summer of 2019 with the Stones' 'Bridges to Bremen,' you can plan to ring in 2020 with their newly-released 'Bridges to Buenos Aires.' Taken from the same 1998 tour, but this one has a few neat surprises.
Monday Dec 2, 2019 25:00 PM ET
Gigantic box set that includes 28 feature films and tons of extras, collected on 15 discs. Many of these Bud Abbott and Lou Costello classics make their HD debut here. A vintage comedy collector's dream.
Thursday Nov 21, 2019 20:00 PM ET
Light and frothy, this based-in-truth depiction of one '80s teen's discovery - and embrace - of Bruce Springsteen's music has a few deeper themes below it's feelgood surface that make it worthwhile.
Friday Nov 8, 2019 25:00 PM ET
Not sure went wrong here. Oscar-nominated screenwriter making her directorial debut. Cult fave comic miniseries as source material. Three great stars - Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss - headlining.
Sunday Nov 3, 2019 40:00 PM ET
While the bonus tracks aren't as engrossing or revelatory as the previous two superdeluxe Beatles boxes, and the rewriting of history continues with Giles Martin's authorized remixes, there's still plenty to like about this release.
Friday Nov 1, 2019 00:00 PM ET
A heist thriller with two marquee names but not enough thrills. Bruce Willis is really a supporting player here to Michael Chiklis. Should've been more interesting.
Tuesday Aug 27, 2019 35:00 PM ET
Another great live concert video and album by The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band, this one comes from near the end of the Bridges to Babylon tour.
Sunday Aug 25, 2019 35:00 PM ET
Carole King fans take note: Eagle Rock has added an important piece of history to the singer-songwriter's legend.
Monday Feb 4, 2019 55:00 PM ET
Funny Kevin Hart vehicle, thanks to a great ensemble cast. Tiffany Haddish downplays to nice effect as a teacher trying to instruct a group of ne'er do wells.
Monday Feb 4, 2019 40:00 PM ET
A direct-to-video dud starring John Travolta. Based loosely on the life of speedboat designer Donald Aronow.
Monday Feb 4, 2019 30:00 PM ET
Classic romantic comedy feels as fresh today as it did 30 years ago (fresher, in fact, thanks to a brand new transfer).
Monday Jan 14, 2019 30:00 PM ET
'Death Wish,' only starring a woman. That's it in a nutshell. A committed performance by Jennifer Garner doesn't make up for its shortcomings.
Sunday Jan 6, 2019 55:00 PM ET
MLB presents all five games of the 2018 World Series in their entirety, plus the ALDS and ALCS clinchers. Watch with standard TV play-by-play or the radio play-by-play from either Boston or Los Angeles broadcasts.
Monday Dec 17, 2018 35:00 PM ET
Highlights from the 2018 Fall Classic, in which Boston handily dominated (as they had done all season long), presented in one quick package.
Monday Dec 17, 2018 40:00 PM ET
The capture of Adolf Eichmann, years following the end of WWII, is dramatized in excellent, gripping form by director Chris Weitz.
Monday Dec 17, 2018 10:00 PM ET
A young Yeti seeks to prove the existence of the fabled "smallfoot" (aka human being) in this slight, but intermittently clever, animated feature.
Monday Dec 10, 2018 45:00 PM ET
The latest entry in the on-going 'Conjuring Universe' isn't as scary as its effective theatrical trailer suggested. While still a big hit, there's not much inspiration on display here.
Monday Dec 10, 2018 10:00 PM ET
Classic 1994 show is presented in its entirety for the first time on home video, accompanied by two audio CDs. Several guest stars add to the "special event" feel and then-new bassist Darryl Jones gels immediately.
Tuesday Nov 27, 2018 30:00 PM ET
Five complete HBO stand-up specials, the best of 'Mork & Mindy,' rare USO comedy performances, 'SNL' hosting gigs, 'Tonight Show' appearances, and the career-spanning documentary 'Come Inside My Mind'—these 12 discs from Time Life contain hours of priceless Robin Williams greatness.
Monday Nov 26, 2018 50:00 PM ET
The summer rom-com hit of 2018 arrives on home video just in time for the holiday gift-giving season.
Sunday Nov 25, 2018 25:00 PM ET
A new Blu-ray concert video boasts a spirited performance by Sheryl Crow that contains all her big hits. The package also includes the music on two audio CDs.
Thursday Nov 22, 2018 00:00 PM ET
Double Emmy winner (for star/writer/director/creator Bill Hader and co-star Henry Winkler) this HBO Original Series is funny and quirky.
Tuesday Nov 20, 2018 30:00 PM ET
From the 1988 original (perhaps the greatest action movie ever made) through four sequels, this hardcover volume spills the beans about everything John McClane-related.
Tuesday Nov 20, 2018 20:00 PM ET
Director Peter Berg re-teams with star Mark Wahlberg for the fourth time and while the results are not nearly as satisfying as their first three collaborations, this one is a non-stop blast of visceral action.
Monday Nov 19, 2018 00:00 PM ET
For the double-album's Golden Anniversary, UMe has issued it remixed and supplemented with oodles of demos, rehearsals, alternate takes, and alternate mixes. What Beatles fan WOULDN'T want to see this big box wrapped up underneath the tree this season?
Sunday Nov 18, 2018 30:00 PM ET
Lots of lavish releases for the Beatles nut this holiday season - Lennon's second-best album receives the mondo-deluxe treatment.
Sunday Nov 18, 2018 05:00 PM ET
Provocative and inventive, Spike Lee's latest offers a unique mix of dry and outrageous humor, all while telling the based-in-fact story of Ron Stallworth, Colorado Springs' first black police detective.
Sunday Nov 18, 2018 20:00 PM ET
The 1982 classic that launched Stallone's second iconic, signature character. Newly issued in upgraded 4K UltraHD.
Sunday Nov 18, 2018 20:00 PM ET
The second-biggest movie of 1985 and movie that forever erased the nuance found in the original Rambo film. Now available with upgraded visuals.
Sunday Nov 18, 2018 20:00 PM ET
Actually better in some ways than its much more famous and successful immediate predecessor, Stallone's third outing as John Rambo completes Lionsgate's newly-issued upgrade.
Wednesday Nov 14, 2018 30:00 PM ET
It's a killer shark movie with spectacular effects and Jason Statham leading an ensemble cast that includes Rainn Wilson (Dwight in 'The Office'). The ingredients are all there for a cheesy good time and 'The Meg' delivers.
Wednesday Nov 14, 2018 50:00 PM ET
Lighthearted and full of laughs, the 'Teen Titans Go!" theatrical movie runs out of gas before the credits roll, but it's an easy, breezy, fun watch nonetheless.
Monday Nov 5, 2018 45:00 PM ET
Unjustly forgotten classic '80s buddy comedy is revived by Shout Select. Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks make for an endearingly funny team.
Tuesday Oct 30, 2018 15:00 PM ET
Handsome new transfer for this edition—and Travolta is as cool as ever—but this Elmore Leonard adaptation has not aged well.
Monday Oct 29, 2018 00:00 PM ET
This sequel has visual and sonic pizzazz up the yin-yang, but without Meryl Streep it's lacking an irreplaceable element the original had (no offense to her "replacement," Lily James, a strong actress in other roles).
Wednesday Oct 24, 2018 15:00 PM ET
Uneven, amateurish directorial debut by Boots Riley boasts some startling ideas and an welcome sense of adventure.
Wednesday Oct 24, 2018 40:00 AM ET
Lots of warm humor and great performances by Vera Farmiga, Christopher Plummer, Lewis MacDougall, Christopher Lloyd, and Bobby Cannavale make this one worth seeking out.
Tuesday Oct 16, 2018 20:00 AM ET
This Billy Crystal comedy holds up remarkably well nearly 30 years later and is helped along by a spiffy new transfer by Shout Factory.
