  • BAND OF ROBBERS 1

    BAND OF ROBBERS

    BAND OF ROBBERS REVIEWED “Band of Robbers” is a loving idea for a modern adaptation. However, it wears its wannabe Wes Anderson cleverness on its sleeve. The cast is pretty strong, but no one seems to operate with any idea of what to do next. Melissa Benoist, Stephen Lang...
  • BOONVILLE REDEMPTION, THE 3

    BOONVILLE REDEMPTION, THE

    THE BOONVILLE REDEMPTION REVIEWED “The Boonville Redemption” is an end-of-an-era Western about a young girl discovering her true parentage. If you’re expecting John Wayne heroics, you’re out of luck. This is a solid film about forgiveness and looking past the end of your nose. Families unite and communities come...
  • FREE TO RUN 5

    FREE TO RUN

    FREE TO RUN REVIEWED “Free to Run” is a documentary that was narrated in French and then converted to English. Naturally, the dialogue might sound clunky as we watch racing history unfurl. By using the Olympics and later the American Marathon system as touchstones, we see how much has...
  • HANKY PANKY / ANOTHER YOU 7

    HANKY PANKY / ANOTHER YOU

    HANKY PANKY /ANOTHER YOU REVIEWED “Hanky Panky” was the movie in which Radner and Wilder fell in love. Once you get past that, it’s easily the lesser of the three movies they did together. There’s nothing here that Brooks didn’t spoof in “High Anxiety”. It’s a tepid thriller lacking...
  • 50 YEARS OF STAR TREK 9

    50 YEARS OF STAR TREK

    50 YEARS OF STAR TREK REVIEWED “50 Years of Star Trek” is a filmed History Channel retrospective to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. The documentary features the last filmed interview of Leonard Nimoy. So, there’s that. If you look past there, it’s 85 minutes of material that...
  • JUDGE ARCHER 11

    JUDGE ARCHER

    JUDGE ARCHER REVIEWED “Judge Archer” is another one of those historical fiction Martial Arts fan wank fiestas. While you get some excellent combat, the end result never adds up to much. The titular character is an non-elected official who settles beef between rival Martial Arts schools. So much time...
  • BEING EVEL 13

    BEING EVEL

    BEING EVEL REVIEWED “Being Evel” is another stellar Dickhouse documentary. I love it when the Jackass guys tackle these big pioneers in the world of crazed sports and general oddities. While nothing will ever top their coverage of The Whites, there’s something endearing to the fan worship on display...
  • BILL GAITHER'S HOMECOMING HYMNS 15

    BILL GAITHER’S HOMECOMING HYMNS

    BILL GAITHER’S HOMECOMING HYMNS REVIEWED “Bill Gaither’s Homecoming Hymns” is another Time-Life exclusive box set dedicated to the 20th century’s pioneer of Gospel Revival music. While the name might not mean a ton to people outside of his target demographic, Gaither has been making music covered by everybody from...
  • CHRISTMAS RANCH 17

    CHRISTMAS RANCH

    CHRISTMAS RANCH REVIEWED “Christmas Ranch” follows a young girl, as she is nearly thrown out of school. She’s taken to a farm up-state where her grandmother uses the powers of horseplay to tame her wild heart. After learning that the farm is about to be foreclosed upon, the girl...
