HDTV Buying Guide - In this 2013 version our Guide, I discuss Ultra HD TVs and Smart TVs as well as other shifts in the TV marketplace.
Blu-ray Player Buying Guide - A seismic shift in the Blu-ray player market has occurred. It's definitely time to update the Guide to reflect the current trends. And for your convenience, I have assembled a shopping Checklist.
Frozen - There are no really bad guys, just really bad weather. Everybody is freezing in Frozen's sunny kingdom. We don't mind. Disney's winter is so pretty.
Saving Mr. Banks - This Hollywood narrative indulges in Walt Disney's pursuit of writer P.L.Travers' consent to film her eternally popular and endearingly timeless children's books, the Mary Poppins series.
Thor: The Dark World - Beneath the melodramatic mash-up of Marvel and Norse mythology, a much less pretentious - and more entertaining - human comedy is successfully grounding this Nine Realms saga that literally pits darkness against the light.
Machete Kills - As you can imagine from the titular weapon, heads roll, - literally, chopped, dropped and spun on the ground. Of course, if you are a fan of gratuitous gore, who better to mete it out but Danny Trejo, Machete himself.
Dallas Buyers Club - Famously, McConaughey lost 47 pounds to play an HIV-positive redneck Texas cowboy, based on Ron Woodroof's real-life battle with illness, prejudice, the medical community and the Feds.
Despicable Me 2 - Take a look at the Minions. These mini-stars of the movie are funny just sitting there eating lunch. Wait until you see these pint-sized scamps in action jibber-jabbering as they tear up the scenery.
Mary Poppins - Often anointed as Walt Disney's masterpiece (which won him the best picture Academy Award in 1964), its star, Julie Andrews, launched her legendary musical/movie career and won an Academy Award as Best Actress.
