Thanks for the link! I agree with everything the writer said. I am particularly intrigued by what the two Philadelphia police detectives calling on Mike might mean. It looks pretty serious for...

I watched my BD of Tom Hooper's Les Miserables again last night and was blown away again, particularly by Eddie Redmayne's moving performance of Empty Tables and Anne Hathaway's equally heartbreaking...

I agree with almost everything you said. I did think that Ben Affleck was better as Nick that you did. Affleck's acting chops will never be confused with those of Sir Lawrence Olivier but he has...

Roger Livesey won my undying admiration with his tour de force performance in the title role of The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp. It is a great film, 10 Stars out of 10. I have it on BD and have...

I watched my Batman Begins BD again on my 103 last week and it played back perfectly. Mine is a strictly commercial disk that I bought from Amazon or Target.

Couldn't agree more! The finale proved to me once again that despite the show's soapiness and old age, it still has the power to move me.

Thought this was a particularly good episode. I love the dynamic between Rick and his bunch, and Deanna, the congresswoman and her group. No telling where this is going. I also loved Carol's...

The good news for Ferrari is that they have a nearly unlimited upside coming into this year, given that last year's cars appeared to be nearly undrivable.

I think you may recall that I try to be very selective about the BDs I buy. Nevertheless, I still have my fair share of BDs and old DVDs that I know I will never watch again.

I thought Chayton's death scene was terrific. Lucas blowing out Chayton's left side with a shotgun in order to make sure Chayton understood that he was a dead man walking was a perfect touch. Had...

I agree that Breaking Bad belongs in the top tier of all time best television series. It is the reason I decided to watch Better Call Saul. I have liked this show a lot and, as others have said,...

Couldn't agree more. Having Amanda Plummer as the crazy lady killer was inspired casting. She is a talented actress.

i thought that Boyhood was quite a good film. I gave it 8 Stars out of 10. Its drawback is that it has both a leisurely pace and is 165 minutes long. On the upside, the performances are marvelous...

Guess I won't be able to see this one until it shows up on Netflix streaming or one of the premium cable channels. As they are doing more and more frequently, Redbox has failed to make the BD...
