House of Gucci (2021)

As House of Gucci was coming to a close, with all of the on-screen information of what happened to the real-life members of the Gucci family, I felt a sense of sadness.  It wasn’t a sadness born from what had happened to them, but rather from the fact that while all of them met a […]

A Study in Disney: ‘Cinderella’ (1950)

Disney is as much a part of our lives as love and death.  It’s wrapped around us, and not just in our childhood.  There are thousands and thousands of Disney movies by this point but the one that really shape the company and the culture are the animated features.  Disney busted out of the gate […]

Rocky IV: Rocky vs. Drago (1985)

I do not arrive at Sylvester Stallone’s re-edit of Rocky IV putting my feet on unfamiliar turf.  The Rocky pictures have been part of my life since I was 7-years-old.  Like Star Wars and James Bond, I know these movies backwards and forwards and so I have always been comfortable with my assessment that this […]

Rocky IV: Rocky vs. Drago – All of the Changes

So here’s what has changed in Stallone’s re-edit of Rocky IV: * The opening has been changed.  Gone are those silly “Rocket Gloves” and the scenes of Rocky Jr. with that video camera.  Much more prominent is the addition of scenes from Rocky III, including most of that film’s climactic fight and nearly the entire […]
