Blu-Ray Review: Despite Flaws, ‘The Green Hornet’ Leaves Viewers Buzzed

The Green Hornet Blu-Ray

CHICAGO – A mere glance at the pedigree of this action comedy causes one’s expectations to soar: the director of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” joins forces with the writers of “Superbad.” How cool is that? Michel Gondry’s childlike sensibilities would appear to be an ideal match for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s infectious whimsicality.

Film Review: ‘The Green Hornet’ Overly Limelights a Cavalier But Thrilling Seth Rogen

CHICAGO – “The Green Hornet,” which could have been titled “The Seth Rogen Show,” is an uneven mix between a stroke of comic book genius and a self-righteous attempt at being both comedy and drama.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Funny People’ Disappointing Movie, Amazing Blu-Ray

Funny People

CHICAGO – Whatever problems I may have with Judd Apatow’s “Funny People” (and I’ll get to those, trust me), the Blu-Ray release for the comedy is easily one of the most extensive and impressive of the year with hours of bonus material and some amazing archival footage that makes the package a must-own for fans of the film. If only the movie itself lived up to such an impressive HD treatment.

  • Bobby Pin Girls

    CHICAGO – The “breeder years” are difficult on everyone, as the biological imperative becomes overwhelming and the couplings that result yield both discovery and misadventure. Nothing Without a Company’s new play “Bobby Pin Girls” highlight two such Millennial women, roommates who are having man trouble, although the argument can be made that it’s eternally “boy trouble.” The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through December 3rd, 2017. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Transformers 5 front

    CHICAGO – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).
