Blu-ray Review: Celebrate Valentine’s Day With ‘Love Story’

Love Story

CHICAGO – It’s hard to believe that a movie that has come to personify cheesy melodrama like “Love Story” was nominated for SEVEN OSCARS, including Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, and Screenplay (losing the biggies to a film exactly on the other end of the dramatic spectrum, “Patton”). “Love Story” is a sweet, competent drama, but, wow, it’s easy to forget how much it took over when it was released, making over $100 million on a budget under $3 million. This movie was MASSIVE and it would make a great last-minute Valentine’s Day treat.

The big problem is that these projects don’t justify his comic potential.

  • The King of Comedy

    Something always felt a bit out of place for me in Martin Scorsese’s brilliant “The King of Comedy”, just released on Blu-ray for the first time. I couldn’t put my finger on it but chalked it up to it being thematically ahead of its time in its investigation of the cult of personality that defines modern entertainment.
