Review: “Kiki’s Delivery Service” Blu-ray – One of Miyazaki’s Best Has Never Looked Better

by Weathermanon November 26, 2014
How does one review a movie like Kiki’s Delivery Service? Classic doesn’t even begin to accurately describe the movie. Think of any superlative adjective and you could probably attach it to Kiki’s Delivery Service. I think “Among the All Time Greats” is a good starting point. Is it Ghibli’s magnum opus?

Review: “Batman ’66” Blu-ray Limited Edition – The Bright Knight Returns

by Ed Liuon November 25, 2014
Like many of its fans, I seem to have gone through three distinct phases with the 1966 Batman TV series. As a kid, I loved it unironically, since I had no idea what “camp” meant and had precious little basis for live-action superhero comparison. As a teenager, discovering Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns and […]

Princess Mononoke Ashitaka San

Review: “Princess Mononoke” Blu-ray – The Indispensable Mythic Movie

by Todd DuBoison November 24, 2014
Rarely has the wait for high definition treatment been longer and more worthwhile than for Princess Mononoke. This is the most distinct film in Hayao Miyazaki’s illustrious oeuvre, and surely a contender for his very greatest if only because of the many layers there are to it.

Planes: Fire and Rescue - Dusty and Blade Ranger

Review: Flying High with “Planes: Fire and Rescue” Blu-ray

by Ed Liuon November 4, 2014
Way back in the 1970’s, I was one of many kids who wanted to be a firefighter thanks to Emergency, an hour-long drama about Los Angeles County Fire Dept. Station 51 that aired on NBC from 1972 to 1977. Lots of kids are fascinated by firefighters and firefighting equipment, of course, but if something will […]
