Blu-ray Review: Rich, Brilliant Restoration of ‘My Fair Lady’

My Fair Lady

CHICAGO – One of the clear observations in re-connecting with the 1964 Oscar-winning Best Picture “My Fair Lady,” is that essentially it’s a timeless musical. It lives in a universe of George Bernard Shaw, adapted from his original play “Pygmalion,” and comes to life through the music and lyrics of Frederick Loewe and Alan Jay Lerner.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ Exudes Ageless Radiance

Breakfast at Tiffany's Blu-Ray

CHICAGO – With her gamine physique and ageless radiance, it’s easy to see why many cinephiles regard Audrey Hepburn as the greatest of all screen beauties. Yet it isn’t merely her unconventional appearance that continues to keep moviegoers mesmerized. It’s her utter lack of vanity and unmistakable sweetness that ground her in an earthy reality unoccupied by fellow icons like Monroe.

Blu-Ray Review: Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn in Criterion Edition of ‘Charade’

Charade

CHICAGO – Stanley Donen’s 1963 caper “Charade” is one of the films I think of first when it comes to classic Hollywood. It features two of the most iconic stars of all time in Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn and perfectly captures what made them household names around the world. The movie has truly held up over the nearly five decades since its release and is now the latest inductee into the Blu-ray catalog of The Criterion Collection.

DVD Review: Lackluster Edition of ‘My Fair Lady’ Disappoints

My Fair Lady

CHICAGO – Can anyone explain to me why there are lavish, bonus-laden, beautifully transferred versions of so-so musicals like “Gigi” and “South Pacific” on Blu-Ray but the beloved “My Fair Lady” languishes in standard definition? It’s completely illogical, a decision made even more frustrating by a grainy, flat picture and mediocre audio track. Eliza deserves an upgrade.

DVD, Blu-Ray Round Up, Jan. 13, 2009: ‘My Best Friend’s Girl,’ ‘My Bloody Valentine,’ ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’

My Bloody Original

CHICAGO – Audrey Hepburn and Dane Cook. You won’t find that kind of variety too many places outside of HollywoodChicago’s DVD & Blu-Ray Round-Up. From serial killers to musicals to a British import, this week’s round-up features an exciting variety of titles.

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Megan Fox

    CHICAGO - Look past the cheesy carbs and b-boy poses, this shiny mo-cap reboot of cartoon juggernaut “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” offers slick entertainment that makes for a welcome surprise for middle school fare. Proving that executive producer Michael Bay has both grown up but it still frightfully in tune with what jazzes teens, this surprise box office hit is indeed a nice slice of a blockbuster spectacle, whether or not a viewer cares about the turtles or not.
