Motherless Brooklyn is a Dry Detective Thriller from Edward Norton (Blu-ray Review)

Motherless Brooklyn is a Dry Detective Thriller from Edward Norton (Blu-ray Review)

From the Oscar-nominated director-writer-producer-star Edward Norton (“Birdman,” “American History X,” “Primal Fear”) comes the magnetic drama “Motherless Brooklyn.” Inspired by Jonathan Lethem’s novel by the same name, Norton aimed to transpose Lethem’s contemporary characters into a different period and plot and gave it a distinctive atmosphere by re-setting the drama in the 1950s—a time of great change in New York City. Motherless Brooklyn is available NOW on DVD/Blu-ray. Here is my review: Read more

Kevin’s Year-in-Review & The Best Movies of 2019 Feat. Apollo 11, Jojo Rabbit & Climax

Kevin’s Year-in-Review & The Best Movies of 2019 Feat. Apollo 11, Jojo Rabbit & Climax

2019 was another year full of political chaos, a continuously depressing news cycle, environmental turmoil and turbulent discourse in all aspects of general conversation, but the medium of cinema and movie theaters were there to provide escapism for audiences looking to take a break from it all. And there was enough of it to go around for audiences of all genders, races and sexes, from the box-office record-breaking finale to a twenty-two movie-long saga in Avengers: Endgame and a surplus of strong directorial debuts from new female voices in filmmaking to unflinching looks at African-American life in the face of gentrification and epic trips down memory lane from legendary auteurs Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese.
