Blu-ray Review: Diane Lane, James Gandolfini Shine in ‘Cinema Verite’

Cinema Verite Blu-ray

CHICAGOHBO’s under-appreciated original movie recalls the moment when entertainment-seeking Americans averted their eyes from actors to their neighbors over the fence.

TV Review: HBO’s ‘Cinema Verite’ With Diane Lane, Tim Robbins

CHICAGO – How did we get here? How did the reality TV craze start? Some would have you believe that it is a modern trend and its popularity in the ’00s and ’10s has certainly been striking, but it’s much older than that.

Blu-Ray Review: Silly ‘Secretariat’ Bolstered By Superb Extras

Secretariat Blu-Ray

CHICAGO – There are few things more unsightly than a small-minded film that pats itself on the back for being enlightened. “Secretariat” is no more about a horse than “The Blind Side” was about a football player.

Film Review: Diane Lane a Champion in Literal Horse Opera ‘Secretariat’

CHICAGO – In real life, we cling to the notion that the inconceivable can happen, that magical probability can penetrate the mendacity of everyday existence, but it rarely if ever happens.

Diane Lane and John Malkovich lead the charge.

DVD Review: ‘Killshot’ With Mickey Rourke, Diane Lane Finally Gets Released

Killshot

CHICAGO – How does a movie with Oscar-nominated leads, a prominent director, beloved source material, and an excellent supporting cast get delayed for so long that it inevitably gets quietly shuffled off to DVD? Well, if history tells us anything, having a complicated and troubled project in the Weinstein Company archives doesn’t help a movie like “Killshot,” an action thriller that has its flaws but none so big that it deserved such an unusual and lackluster fate.

Blu-Ray Review: Shockingly High Levels of Melodrama Sink ‘Nights in Rodanthe’

Rodanthe
HollywoodChicago.com Blu-Ray Rating: 2.0/5.0
Blu-Ray Rating: 2.0/5.0

CHICAGO – I have a very high threshold for melodramatic romance. I was raised on cheesy musicals and will admit to pausing on the underrated “The Notebook” more than once when I pass it on cable.
