Featurette for Cord Jefferson’s AMERICAN FICTION starring Jeffrey Wright

  AMERICAN FICTION is Cord Jefferson's hilarious directorial debut, which confronts our culture’s obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes. Jeffrey Wright stars as Monk, a frustrated novelist who’s fed up with the establishment profiting from “Black” entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, Monk uses a pen name to write an outlandish “Black” book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.

OPPENHEIMER 4K Blu-ray Review

The Film Christopher Nolan, the acclaimed filmmaker, has taken on a new challenge with his latest movie, a biopic about J. Robert Oppenheimer. Commonly known as "The Father of the Atomic Bomb," Oppenheimer played a significant role in shaping the latter half of the 20th century. The film, titled OPPENHEIMER, follows three distinct time periods, starting with Robert's academic pursuits at Cambridge in 1926. Later, the story moves to 1942, where Robert becomes involved in the Manhattan Project, a secret mission to construct a nuclear weapon to defeat the Nazis. The film then weaves through 1954 and 1959, exploring a hearing questioning Robert's security clearance and a Senate confirmation hearing, respectively. Initially, viewers might find the narrative's temporal shifts disorienting but they soon settle into the story of OPPENHEIMER. As the film progresses, it gradually becomes a symphonic narrative. Nolan artfully immerses the audience in the intricacies of the p

THE EXPENDABLES Franchise 4K Steelbook Review

I recently received a copy of the 4K steelbook collection of   THE EXPENDABLES film series from Lionsgate. The series is a tribute to action cinema and offers an exciting and nostalgic experience for fans of the genre. In this review, I'll take a closer look at the films and the special features included in the collection. The Films: The ensemble cast in each film of  THE EXPENDABLES franchise is legendary. With action icons such as Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and many more, it's a dream come true for fans of 80's action. Each actor brings their unique style and charisma to the table, making the chemistry between the characters the secret to what makes these movies work. The films rely on practical effects and jaw-dropping stunts. Although they make use of CGI, it is not relied upon to create action sequences. Instead, it enhances moments, which is a refreshing difference in today's cinema landscape. The result is an authentic and gritt
