    Captain Marvel (2019) [Blu-ray Review]

    Captain Marvel found an audience. That alone spurred thousands of thinkpieces and Gawker Media style backpats.

    ScreenX2: The Quickening + A Word on Captain Marvel

    Previously on AndersonVision… Last November, I delivered some critical words on ScreenX, the premium theatrical format that boasts a 270-degree, wall-enveloping screen.

    BASMATI BLUES

    BASMATI BLUES REVIEWED “Basmati Blues” is a musical. It’s all a Western fantasy about saving the poor people of the East from scientific progress. But, it’s also an American take on a Bollywood film. There’s a ton happening. Brie Larson is superb in the lead, but she rarely gets...

    THE GLASS CASTLE REVIEWED “The Glass Castle” is all over the place. While I wasn’t a big fan of Jeanette Walls’ memoir, I expected that this cast and director could raise the material. What follows is what many would call poor people porn. The narrative is handled in a...

    FREE FIRE

    FREE FIRE REVIEWED “Free Fire” showcases everything great and bad about Ben Wheatley’s movies. The director is a man of ideas and he makes the plotting of such plans work in his films. It’s just everything from dialogue to interpersonal relationships and pacing fall to garbage over a set...

    KONG: SKULL ISLAND

    AndersonVision Best Films of 2017: #23 – Kong: Skull Island (Warner Brothers) KONG: SKULL ISLAND REVIEWED “Kong: Skull Island” is love. No, not that love between a man and a find Cuban cigar. It’s the kind of love that exists in true fandom. By tweaking the base concepts behind...
