    ★★★★

    An interesting look at the director's life and how he brought elements of it into his films.

  • Young Frankenstein

    Young Frankenstein

    ★★★★½

    SEDAGIVE?!?!

    I've been watching this movie for years, but if you haven't gotten the Blu-ray you're missing out on some really interesting deleted scenes. One in particular shows the actual reading of Baron Von Frankenstein's Will. It would have fit so nicely with the rest of the movie, but it was left out, however I'm glad it came back in the form of a deleted scene.

  • FM

    FM

    ★★★½

    What a great time capsule of radio in 1978. I had seen bits and pieces of it when it was broadcast on WPIX-TV sometime in the early 1990s. When it was released on Blu-ray, I figured, "Hey, why not?"

    The soundtrack is the highlight of the movie, plus you get performances from Linda Ronstadt and Jimmy Buffet. As for the plot, well, there's not much to it. I suppose back in 1978, playing army recruitment ads on an FM rock…

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★★½

    I enjoy the music of Queen, so it's about time I finally got around to seeing this movie. It's entertaining, if you can get past the historical inaccuracies. The best parts are the musical performances, whether in concert or in the recording studio. Rami Malek has the Freddie Mercury mannerisms down pat. The stuff in between adequately transports you from point A to point B. I noticed Mike Myers credit, but didn't recognize him at all in the film. I thought there might have been a clip of Wayne's World in it.

  • The Centrifuge Brain Project

    The Centrifuge Brain Project

    ★★★½

    You've probably seen videos of these "rides" floating around the internet. Once you find out they're from this mockumentary, you know they're definitely fake, but the film is still fun. The "doctor" adds context to these "rides" and keeps things amusing.

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★★

    Made me look forward to the Cassian Andor series even more.

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Come on, Disney+, there's a series in this movie somewhere!

  • Life with Father

    "Gah!"

  • Stay Tuned

    Stay Tuned

    ★★★

    How did this get released in theatres? TV actors get stuck... in the TV! Whatever happened to Pam Dawber, anyway? It's a fun movie you can watch with your kids. The question is, would kids today get some of the jokes?

  • My Man Godfrey

    My Man Godfrey

    ★★★½

    This movie has nothing to do with Arthur Godfrey.

    I needed something amusing, and this fit the bill.

  • The Vast of Night

    The Vast of Night

    ★★★

    The big one shot in the middle (you know what I'm talking about) was good. However, I found a few things confusing. Was this taking place in Texas or somewhere else, near the Mexican border? And why did the radio station have the call sign WOTW, when stations west of the Mississippi should start with a K? (WRR is one of the rare exceptions) Is this a reference to Coldplay, which wouldn't exist for another 40 years or so? It's not a bad movie, but I'm left with some unanswered questions, and I'm not sure there's a sequel on the way.

  • Airplane!

    Airplane!

    ★★★★½

    Still funny after all these years.
