[Fresh on 4K] ‘SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS’ improves the UHD look where its predecessor fell short

Guy Ritchie 2009 popcorn flick SHERLOCK HOLMES was indeed a remarkable film. While its 2011 sequel SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS is certainly an enjoyable film, it can’t quite seem to escape its predecessor’s shadow. Interestingly, when it comes to 4K, A GAME OF SHADOWS makes considerable visual improvements.

[Virtual Cinema Retro Review] ‘BEAU TRAVAIL’ at 20, still an illuminating visual poem

[Virtual Cinema Retro Review] ‘BEAU TRAVAIL’ at 20, still an illuminating visual poem

There probably isn’t a person alive who doesn’t have a particular part of their lives they recall as the glory days. The time when you felt most confident in your abilities when you felt like your purpose was being fulfilled in life; now strip it all away and the only thing left is bitterness and all-consuming ego. This is at the center of storied French director Claire Denis’ 1999 international breakthrough BEAU TRAVAIL (French for “good work”). Denis is breaking down masculinity to its most simple terms by giving an outsider’s perspective into what makes a man tick and if you’re paying attention it can be a how-to guide about letting go of the past, and reinventing yourself even if you don’t have the skill-set to take a peek internally to do the actual good work, and learn how to change.

[Review] ‘I’M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS’ – a little bit of surrealism never hurt anybody

Say the title to Charlie Kaufman’s latest film out loud “IM THINKING OF ENDING THINGS…” how does that statement make you feel? Probably not so good. It suggests crippling indecision, or something a bit haunting. Kaufman has made a name for himself as Hollywood’s most absurd humorist. The multi-faceted screenwriter/director deserves “a whole row of Oscars,” and managed to nab one for his writing work on ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND back in 2005.
