February 3rd, 2012 10:05am EST
split Image photo
With so many older flicks hitting Blu-ray this week (although "The Piano" was sadly sans special features – damn you!) it felt like time to shed a little light on a hidden gem that hasn’t even made it’s way to DVD yet – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! If there were any justice in the home video world, this week’s selection would see a fully restored special edition with a cast group commentary that would blow every cinefile mind. (And I’m not talking a Tony Kaye cut of "American History X" with Edward Norton and Kaye tag-team commentary!) It’s a film about kidnapping and cults (not ne...

Radical Retro Movie Review: 'Raiders Of The Lost Ark' Turns 30

June 13th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Raiders of the Lost Ark Turns 30
Author’s note: This film, which I’m about to review, is one of the most influential from my childhood. From the first frame, to the end credits, I sat captivated, as I watched it time after countless time. In fact, my VHS copy got so much use, that it’s barely playable now.

“Raiders of the Lost Ark” which turned 30 on Sunday, had a profound impact on me, stimulating my imagination and inspiring a passion for movies that I still possess today as an adult. It is from this perspective, that I share my opinion with you.

After 19 Years, 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' Phenomenally Exhumes Venerated Roots

May 22nd, 2008 11:16am EDT
Indiana Jones
(HollywoodChicago.com) – After such a long respite from the beloved film progression, I was initially just as skittish about seeing Harrison Ford back in the Indy saddle as I was watching Sylvester Stallone back in the ring in “Rocky Balboa” in his 2006 comeback and then again in 2008 in his “Rambo” return.

Ultimately, though, I had faith in director Steven Spielberg not to royally torpedo the monolithically anticipated “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” which resurrects the Chicago-born, 65-year-old Harrison Ford as one of my favorite film characters of all time.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of AARP (Let's Leave Indy in Retirement)

Let's get this out of the way before I even begin to write about anything else: Harrison Ford is 64 years old. That's beyond the aged cheese that is Bruce Willis. We're talking Sly Stallone's territory. Let's examine Stallone's recent career ch...
