Important site update: I've recently brought about MASSIVE changes to my reviewing equipment! I've recently revamped almost every aspect of my system - here are the alterations:
LG OLED65C6P 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart OLED TV
Marantz SR7010 9.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Surround Receiver
Chane A2.4 Speakers
SVS SB12-NSD 12" 400-watt Sealed Box Subwoofer.
Expect more improvement in the near future, as I'll soon add a 4K UHD Blu-ray player as well as Dolby Atmos speakers. All of this improves my ability to provide thorough, accurate reviews of the new releases!
TERROR IN A TEXAS TOWN [BLU-RAY] (1958): "Given its clear debt to High Noon and other films, I canít call Terror in a Texas Town a great Western, but it usually satisfies. The movie offers a brisk, tight narrative that gives us enough drama to keep us with it." Starring Sterling Hayden, Sebastian Cabot. Arrow, $39.95, 7/11/2017.
SEMI-PRO [BLU-RAY] (2008): "Though Semi-Pro suffers from a mix of flaws, I canít call it a bad movie. I canít call it a good one, either, but I think it entertains well enough to succeed on a modest level." Starring Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson. New Line, $19.98, 6/3/2008.
GHOST IN THE SHELL [BLU-RAY] (2017): "Fans who waited more than 20 years for a live-action Ghost in the Shell seem likely to feel disappointed with the end result. Despite a slew of potential positives, the 2017 film provides a largely dull, meandering tale." Starring Scarlett Johansson, Juliette Binoche. Paramount, $39.99, 7/25/2017.
HAPPY GILMORE [BLU-RAY] (1996): "I donít think Happy Gilmore stands as Adam Sandlerís best flick, but it presents more than a few good moments. It enjoys a cool concept and some amusing gags to become generally likable, though not exceptional." Starring Adam Sandler, Christopher McDonald. Universal, $14.98, 6/7/2011.
KONG: SKULL ISLAND [BLU-RAY] (2017): "A semi-reboot of the long-established franchise, Kong: Skull Island fails to ignite. Despite many positive attributes, the film lacks the emotion and humanity to become more than empty calories." Starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson. Warner, $35.99, 7/18/2017.
THE KINGS OF SUMMER [BLU-RAY] (2013): "As a ďcoming of ageĒ movie, The Kings of Summer feels unoriginal. It nods toward too many influences and fails to turn into a coherent, compelling tale." Starring Alison Brie, Nick Offerman. Sony, $19.99, 9/24/2013.
