DVD Review: Forget the Movie Version; Catch Up With Original ‘Fame’ TV Series

Fame

CHICAGO – The 2009 movie version of “Fame” is getting almost nothing but pans from critics this weekend, so why not go back to the most popular incarnation of the concept, the TV series, recently released in a two-season box set that fans of classic television should consider a must-add to their collections.

  • Gambler, The 2

    CHICAGO – Browsing Dostoyevsky titles with consideration for proper roles for Mark Wahlberg, one might expect the Beantown hero to take on an adaptation of “The Idiot” before anything like “The Gambler.” After all, while Wahlberg has proven to be a diverse screen force - one who has well-grown past his Funky Bunch days - he often leans towards goofy men, or at least goofy men in goofy movies.

  • Interstellar

    CHICAGO – Far more marvelous than imperfect, “Interstellar” is the answer for moviegoers who have lost the zeal for massive films, citing a lack of ideas, heart, or general passion for filmmaking. Director Christopher Nolan’s 2014 space odyssey is an event of beauty, with the rare experience of showing viewers something they haven’t seen before.
