Full Metal Jacket: 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Book

More than just the movie that made ‘me so horny’ a household phrase.


Drama

Rod Lott
When Stanley Kubrick’s Vietnam film, Full Metal Jacket, hit theaters in the summer of 1987, I was all of 16 years old. Even I could tell it was far better than Oliver Stone’s Platoon, which by then had won four Academy Awards; by comparison, Jacket would be nominated for one, Best Adapted Screenplay, and lose it to The Last Emperor.

Zorro

Z marks the spot, occasionally.


Action

Rod Lott
It wasn't too long ago you could find crap copies of 1975's Zorro in the dollar-store DVD bins. For a Blu-ray release, Somerville House has cleaned it all up digitally, improving everything but how dull it sometimes is.

Perry Mason Mysteries: The Original Warner Bros. Movies Collection

I was underwhelmed, your honor.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I should have listened to Ron Backer. In his new book, Mystery Movie Series of 1930s Hollywood, he more or less warns would-be audiences away from trying any of the early 1930s’ half-dozen movies based on Erle Stanley Gardner's Perry Mason character.

The Company You Keep

Old radicals don't learn new tricks.


Thriller

Phil Bacharach
Baby boomers can be their own worst enemy. The generation that was going to change the world instead settled on thinking the world of themselves. Youthful idealism, aging and compromised idealism, pining for that youthful idealism — nothing fuels anti-boomer sentiment like boomer sentimentality.

Jack the Giant Slayer

Fee-fi-fo-fum, why is this movie so darned ho-hum?


Action

Rod Lott
Among the recent wave of the great and powerful fairy-tale flicks, Jack the Giant Slayer may be the truest to its storybook origins, and ironically, the least to live happily after ever at the box office.

Room 237

Rhetoric on redrum.


Documentary

Rod Lott
The Shining is about a novelist who goes mad while hotel-sitting over a winter break. The Shining is about the white man's genocide of Native Americans. The Shining is about the Holocaust. The Shining is about how Stanley Kubrick faked the Apollo moon landings.
