DVD 80% of sales: Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment’s “Spider-Man” swung into action Friday on rental and retail shelves, selling an estimated 7 million combined VHS and DVD units its first day out and capturing the first-day-sales record, which had been held by Disney/Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc.” with 4.5 million total units sold to consumers. CTHE’s top executives credited the record-breaking sales ... Read More »

I Spy

I’m not gonna do it. I’m not gonna sit here and spew a ton of geek-boy crap over the fact that this movie has only three things in common with the original TV series that bears its name (that’s one!). This is a surprisingly funny movie in which a white spy (there’s spying…that’s two!) gets paired with a black boxer ... Read More »

24 Has Two Stars

Tomorrow night begins a new season of “24.” I’ve watched the DVD box set of the first season, and to me there is one main reason the show was so successful. It isn’t the “real time” setting. It isn’t the brisk pace of the story, although the fact that the story is well constructed adds much to the show. The ... Read More »

Supposedly, these are the adventures of the grown-up offspring of Batman and Catwoman (how she has “superpowers'”, I do not know). Also, there is Oracle – the former (now paralyzed) Batgirl and Dinah – a ... Read More »

The Tuxedo

We just got back from a free showing of the new Jackie Chan movie, The Tuxedo. Now, I must preface this with the fact that I love Jackie Chan. He’s funny and an amazing athlete (he’s almost 50 and still looks like a devilish 20-something…unless you get a real closeup). I’d be hard pressed to think of another actor that ... Read More »
