Warner Bros. and the Homefront Collection - DVD Review

There was a time when Hollywood made an effort to entertain and support the troops with high-budget productions. They enlisted their A-List stars and major directors to create inspirational movies that put a song in their heart and reminded them what they were defending. They didn't just slap together a quickie performance with B-list stars giving substandard comedy routines. During World War II, the stars put on a show as spectacular as themselves. Warner Bros. and the Homefront Collection is packed with tributes to the troops that will shock and awe fans of vintage cinema. »»

Warner Gangsters Collection Vol. 4 - DVD Review

The cafeteria at Warner Brothers must have been one tough place. How could a contract actor not be intimidated carrying their tray past Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, George Raft and James Cagney? They'd be less nervous as fresh fish lunching at Alcatraz. It was a studio made for tough guys. Warner Gangsters Collection Vol. 4 keeps up the dirty work with thugs and classic mugs. These five films aren't considered landmarks of crime, but they are all gems of the genre. Four of them star Edward G. Robinson and twice he battles Bogart to the death. »»

Bette Davis was most certainly a one of a kind. No actress ever has or ever will have a career like hers. Throughout her eclectic career she was nominated for eleven Academy Awards and won twice. She was elected the first female president of the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1941. And her career was publicly considered finished several times and she always managed to prove the public wrong. Such as in 1949 when she lost her film contract. Without a studio everyone thought she was done for, until she came back the next year with easily the best role of her career (more on that film later). Bette Davis acted in over 100 films from 1931 till 1989 when shed died, and while not every film she made was great she always gave a memorable performance. Included in this collection are five films starting in 1950 and ending in 1965. And as we move on to learn more about those we'll let the films speak for themselves. »»

Hitting Shelves This Week...

This is no time for jokes everyone as April is already here, but perhaps the theme of this April Fool's Day collection of DVDs really is quite fitting. Alvin and the Chipmunks have taken over with numerous releases this week from their old animated favorites to their newest live-action film. But if that isn't your speed, then perhaps the first season of Becker or the last season of That '70s Show are more your speed. Or perhaps you could go for my favorite pick this week and watch Johnny Depp's masterful performance in Sweeney Todd. Sigh, if only Paulie Shore were in more films nowadays though. What? April Fool? No way, Son-In-Law rocks! »»
