Movie Review Schindler's List


My Movie Review:

Schindler’s List is one of those rare films that is so important that it is used as an educational tool in many schools around the world. In Israel the film is aired publically during the Holocaust Memorial Day unedited, uncensored and without commercial breaks.

The film chronicles the Holocaust from the viewpoint of Oskar Schindler and the 1,100 Jews he rescued by employing them in factories that Oskar bought using money he received from Jewish leaders. The first factory Oskar purchased manufactured pots for the German army while his second supposedly manufactured artillery shells.

Oskar bribed many German SS and others to open a sub-camp to allow him to keep his factory open and later has the thousand plus Jews assigned to him instead of being sent to Auschwitz. Oskar Schindler runs his second factory saying he is making artillery shells for the war effort but only buys shells from other factories to pass off as his own when he can’t even manufacture any.

His factory never produced a working artillery shell during its operation and at the end of the war Oskar talked the German guards into leaving the Jews alone and to leave in peace. The Jews gave Oskar a gold ring made from some dental work and a letter saying that Oskar is not a war criminal and has saved over a thousand Jews.

While many may know the tale it is an important part of our world history but also a much better way to catch a glimpse of that history. Steven Spielberg and the other talent on his team create a work of art that many have appreciated along with the numerous awards it has won.

Schindler’s List on Blu-ray is great for both audio and video with attention paid to both but audio does surpass video in quality for the DVD and Blu-ray editions that the newest release contains. The audio is fantastic with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that is perfect for this film and sounds just great without any problems.

The film is mostly in black and white filming with an occasional bit of color to highlight a certain event that really brings the emotion and moment an impact that you will not soon forget. Schindler’s List is not going to be forgotten and the Jews who were rescued and others who also survived are being remembered because of the film and its impact on the world.

Steven Spielberg used the proceeds from the film and subsequent releases of the DVD’s and Blu-ray editions to fund the USC Shoah archive to chronicle the testimonies of survivors of the Holocaust. No film has made such an impact on the world as this and for this very reason it is one that everyone should watch for its historical value.

The Survivors of the Shoah History Foundation at first chronicled the 52,000 survivors of the Holocaust from World War II but has gone on to record other survivors of genocide worldwide. The foundation has gone on to record survivors stories not only of the genocide taking place in other parts of the world but up to today that many people may not be aware of.

Steven Spielberg does not want too many making of features created of the film itself as he believes it will take away from the main story he is relating and its importance. For that reason he has limited the bonus content on the films DVD and Blu-ray releases to the three bonus features and no more.

The three bonus features are the documentary of actual survivors talking about events of their survival in the Holocaust and about Oskar Schindler himself. This feature is a great companion to the film and really brings the films story to heart with personal moments from the people who were there.

The other two features are quicker looks at the USC Shoah foundation and the IWitness website that allows visitors to watch other stories of survivors and has other educational content. The bonus content may only be the minimum that Steven Spielberg wanted but it is not enough to warrant a decent rating for the extra content.

Movie reviews of the film have been mostly positive but a few detractors have been critical about minor points of the film but have mostly movie reviews have been very positive. I feel my movie review of Schindler’s List is more in line with other viewers as well as other critics as the film is more than just a drama about historical events but an emotional journey.

Very rarely has a movie come along that I have cried at and even though I am only performing a movie review I am also emotionally attached to this film. Sitting and watching the film for something like the fifth time I was unsurprised to also see my wife with a few tears when Oscar was leaving his factory and friends at the end of the film.

No matter the bonus features the film itself Schindler’s List s not only a great movie but an important film for our history as it shows the tale of Oskar Schindler as it should be told. Schindler’s List is a must see film for everyone and is a must have for any film collection, the 20th Anniversary Limited Edition is a great way to enjoy this film.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Blu-ray

The newest Battlestar Galactica off shoot continues to hit the small screen with a new full length movie Blood & Chrome that brings another look at characters from the reimagined series.

Blood & Chrome Battlestar Galactica Blu-ray Review

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes a quick look at William Adama when he first starts his military career after his Academy days on his first adventure. Blood & Chrome stars Luke Pasqualino as William Adama, Ben Cotton as Lt. Coker Fasjovik and Lili Bordan as Dr. Beka Kelly.

I reviewed the last half season of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series and found the show to be confusing even though I tried to catch up on events due to never having watched the series before. I truly do not recommend you watch the final episodes of a series but the series is a good one even though it does take a very different tack than the original series.

The main difference between the old series and the new was a more emotional series and easier to film show due to the use of less mechanical Cylons, read robots. The new series has substituted humans as cyborg creations that look identical to humans mainly to make the show easier to film but the plot handles this well.

The reimagined series is a mainstay of the new types of shows coming out with easier to film yet emotional plots due to good acting and well written episodes even if some of it is a bit confusing. The film Blood & Chrome takes place well before the series and even the first series with a quick glimpse at what made the Battlestar Galactica’s commander during the final years of the Cylon human war.

The film Blood & Chrome stars a young William Adama as he is forced to deal with a mission that winds up being much different than his young career plans were imagined. Lieutenant Adama is fresh out of the Academy and yearns to fly the best fighters of the fleet, instead he is given a mission where he flies an old transport fighter and escorts a female scientist to an unknown destination.

During the mission Adama uses his talents to complete the mission with a few twists and turns in the mix to keep the story lively but in the end it’s a simple science fiction action film. Blood & Chrome was first shot as a miniseries and only once did I notice a definite break in the episodes which is surprising as I had not known this was a miniseries.

The video for Blood & Chrome is good but not great with some obvious green screen work and a great transfer to Blu-ray with problems mostly due to the source material. Video looks very good but at times you just know it’s a lot of CGI animation that is all from the original filming and not the transfer to Blu-ray.

Grain is sometimes obvious and color is great most of the time but a few times the scenes are very different than the majority of the film. The video looks pretty good but probably could have looked better so the Blu-ray edition does well enough for the video quality.

Audio is much better than video with great sounding output and a real attention to surround for a great entertainment experience. Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome has a sometimes busy and adventurous plot for a great addition to your audio enhancement to the film.

Audio uses a lot of surround while voice is quite clear in all the scenes so the audio sounds great with its well-done DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 sound track. Bonus content is a disappointment with very little to speak of in extras, only a deleted scenes set and a making of feature centering on the use of CGI animation for the sets is included.

With so much filming done with CGI the main bonus content is about using CGI and the use of computer generated sets instead of traditional filming locations. The one main extra on the Blu-ray edition of Blood & Chrome is about the CGI use and filming behind the scenes which is alright for a very technical look at the filming but it is a bit repetitive.

The deleted scenes are alright but the bonus features are too short to get excited about the extras on the disc so it does get a bad rating for bonus content. The Blu-ray edition of Blood & Chrome is a look at the series before the main events of the Cylons killing off the humans and a look at the main character of Commander Adama before he becomes the leader of the humans.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome is an interesting film but in the end it has its own foibles that the reimagined series did not have to deal with. Blood & Chrome uses more robotic and technical aspects that the reimagined series does not and deals less with emotional issues but with more action.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome is an action film in the end that is based on both series but is not all that great as an action film itself.

the perks of being a wallflower Blu-ray

the perks of being a wallflower

the perks of being a wallflower stars Logan Lerman as Charlie who is starting high school after some sort of life altering incident but we only get a hint at the beginning that something occurred in Charlie’s life. Charlie is your typical high school outcast who sits alone in the cafeteria and yearns for friends like many others have but only has his writing to occupy his mind.

Charlie meets Patrick played by Ezra Miller who is very much a high school outcast in his own right along with his half-sister Sam played by Emma Watson. Charlie instantly falls for Sam after a bit of confusion about Sam and Patrick’s relationship but Sam is not as attracted to Charlie in the same way.

Patrick and Sam are very much not your typical high school seniors while Charlie is a freshman just starting his high school journey but he does fit in the smaller crowd that Patrick and Sam are part of. Patrick is having a sort of affair with a high school football player and is openly gay while the football player is hiding behind his own status as football jock to keep his secret.

Charlie has typical but not earth shattering encounters with drugs and other emotional upsets but behind all his daily activities a secret of his own lies ready to spring forth at some time. Patrick has an encounter with the football players father after the father finds the two in bed together.

The next day at school while Patrick is walking past the football jocks table one of them trips him and Patrick decides to make a stand for their relationship. He tries to coerce the football player he has been sleeping with to defend him from his buddies but he only calls Patrick a fag and continues to tease Patrick with his buddies.

The football player acts dumb and innocent and just calls Patrick gay which sets off his buddies to taunt and ridicule Patrick in front of everyone until Charlie steps in. Quickly changing scenes we do not see Charlie snap and attack the group of football players but in a few scenes we see his anger and something deeply hidden escapes and he lays into the brutes teasing Patrick.

Charlie is taken to a hospital where he talks more with a psychiatrist and finally reveals what he has been hiding for years and is the main cause of his emotional problems. Perks does keep you guessing as you know there is some mysterious event that caused Charlie at one time to snap but we get no clear look at it until nearly the end of the movie.

the perks of being a wallflower is one of those films that is close to becoming a classic much like The Breakfast Club with its coming of age story but maybe missing this by a bit. While it does have excellent acting and a great story it just did not click where everything fell into place to create that magic that makes a film rise above a mere movie to classic filmmaking status.

One thing that keeps Perks from rising to a higher level is the almost idyllic look at high school life that the film takes at times which contrasts with the problems we see that many youngsters have. The film looks at both the highs and lows of typical teenagers in high school and tries to keep balance but we see a bit too much of the fun times even though the tribulations are more memorable.

the perks of being a wallflower is a good looking film and the Blu-ray edition does do justice to the film but occasional problems do mar the film a bit. The film was shot in 35 mm and did have some grainy scenes that are at times too soft for an inconsistent film as far as video quality.

While the quality is not up to today’s standards it does look good enough to view and enjoy so the quality is not a big deal as far as film enjoyment. Audio quality is much better with excellent but not perfect quality due to a lack of surround sound speaker use but overall very good.

Audio is mostly centered on the front of your sound field with occasional use of the rears in some scenes but mostly the films center and front speakers will be used. Actual sound quality is excellent with clear voice and great sounding music that happens often due to the nature of the film so overall audio gets a great score.

Bonus content includes audio commentary with writer/director Stephen Chbosky and another audio commentary with Stephen Chbosky, Logan Merman, Ezra Miller, Johnny Simmons, Emma Watson Mae Whitman and Erin Willhelm. Extra features also include a five minute interview set, deleted scenes and a couple of unedited scenes for a look at the film before it hits the editing room for an interesting look behind the scenes.

The extras are about what you would expect and about the minimum I would expect for a film but kind of a disappointment that comes with reviewing films. I really enjoy different bonus features that stand apart but in most films and this one included the extras are not worth more than a single look.

the perks of being a wallflower is a great movie but could have reached that epic classic cult level of movie except for that special something that just missed the mark. The film does a great job of conveying the story of Charlie and his new friends and is well worth a rental but you may not like this coming of age film as a collection addition.

Frankenweenie Blu-ray

Frankenweenie Blu-Ray Movie Review

Frankenweenie brings homage to the classic 1931 Frankenstein as well as other monster movie classics with a tale so familiar yet told in a new and family funny way.

Recommendation 5/5 Stars


Frankenweenie may not be Tim Burton’s greatest work but it takes a lot of energy and enthusiasm to reopen a project he did early in his career. Frankenweenie started as a short film in 1984 and was made into a stop motion full length feature that has some very interesting filming aspects.

Frankenweenie shows a not so typical life in New Holland where a young boy named Victor Frankenstein enjoys making films and includes his dog as the hero. One day a tragic accident claims the life of his dog and Victor becomes obsessed with bringing his dog back to life.

Victor succeeds in bringing Sparky back but fellow classmates bring their own deceased pets back with less than predictable results. When Victor’s parents find Sparky he runs off where the other monsters wreak havoc at the New Holland festival with Victor and Sparky saving the day.

Frankenweenie is a black and white stop motion movie which adds to the classic nature but the funny takes on the classic monsters really adds a lot to the plot and family friendly nature. This is one of those films that surprisingly does very well with its odd and quirky tale that lends a lot to the style of the films creator.

The video quality is superb and really well done with clear high definition quality without any problems what so ever with the 3D also being as excellent quality according to other reviewers. I do not have 3d capability, too expensive, but the 2D Blu-ray film is perfect for video so there are no problems from a video quality standpoint.

Voice is clear and the sound track is extremely well done with great use of surround sound and deep bass but voice is never cluttered or drowned out. The sound field is well used but when important events occur that the film needs to highlight the sound dials down a notch to keep your attention centered where it needs to be.

The bonus features are a pleasant surprise with a great mix of making of features and looks behind the scenes which really give a great insight into this unique movie making technique. The film also boasts a full set of museum quality sets that have been on tour featuring the dolls and other parts used in the film which adds a lot to film making in general for people to see.

Frankenweenie is a fantastic film and a must have for those scary Halloween parties where you need a light movie to watch before the real scary stuff for adults only. I definitely recommend Frankenweenie as a great film and a must have classic for any movie collection but especially for kids and youngsters.

The Bourne Legacy Blu-ray Review

The Bourne Legacy Blu-ray Review

The Bourne Legacy follows a side trip in the Bourne story with another agent trying to get off the super soldier drugs only to find out he is partly rid of them due to a virus but this Bourne outing is too much story and not enough action.

The Bourne Legacy

Using the Jason Bourne storyline The Bourne Legacy takes a side trip parallel to the plot of the last Jason Bourne film and happening while Jason is finally getting his answers. Aaron Cross played by Jeremy Renner is the next in line of government created super soldiers who seems to be trying to end his dependency on the government supplied drugs.

With a host of government agents after him he must stay one step ahead and fight harder in order to survive but he also needs help from one of the scientists who are making the drugs he is on. The Bourne Legacy takes a side step from the traditional full out action of the Bourne series with a slow march up to the action explaining first what is going on.

The Bourne Legacy occurs during the last Bourne film but in other parts of the world with a few clips and events from the last film explaining why the super soldier spy program needs to be erased. The film takes its sweet time which is a big surprise from the other Bourne films and just disappoints with much less of the familiar Bourne action.

That nonstop tough as nails fighting and ridiculously impossible action is what the series is known for and this film just does not live up to the Bourne series. The Bourne Legacy is not on the same level as the previous films but it is a decent enough action film and Jeremy Renner does a great job as the next Jason Bourne.

The Blu-ray edition looks great and sounds fantastic with clear video that is only marred by a lack of deep blacks and has a few muted colors at times. The Blu-ray transfer is great but one disappointment is the film goes back and forth between new scenes from this movie and a few scenes from The Bourne Ultimatum.

Audio is also fantastic with clear voice and very well used surround during the whole film for a really immersive experience as far as sound. Ambient sounds and those exciting scenes are all well done with great use of the sound field that really makes the film that much more entertaining.

Bonus content on the Blu-ray edition includes audio commentary, deleted scenes and making of features which are under an hour to take a peek behind the scenes. The bonus content is rather flat but there is enough to at least get a glimpse into the process and see why they attempted another Bourne film with a new star.

I was disappointed with The Bourne Legacy mostly due to the basic motivation behind the star and why he was going off program according to the plot. We never really know why Aaron Cross is fighting his training and the program other than a thin story of being a different man than he was but this does follow along with Jason Bourne I suppose.

He does what he is supposed to but veers from the course set before him for no apparent reason and we never really get the full story on this. The Bourne Legacy is a good enough action film and worth a watch but for fans of the Bourne series it will probably disappoint.

Paranorman Blu-ray Review

ParaNorman stars Kodi Smit-McPhee as Norman Babcock, the “I see dead people” kid who is also more than a bit of a nerd but in the end he does figure out how to stop the witches curse. Tucker Albrizzi plays Normans new friend Neil who wants to be Normans friend even when Norman isn’t too thrilled at getting one.

Norman has an eccentric uncle who has been keeping the local witch at bay for years but now with his impending death he warns Norman it now falls to him to carry on with this duty. When Norman starts seeing something new with his undead sight he believes he really must put the curse of the witch to rest instead of just a yearly abatement.

Norman with an unlikely group of heroes must fight the witch and group of undead as they work to save the town but the curse is not as everyone believes. ParaNorman is a fun and highly creati

ve animated feature with more than a few twists to the plot that work out well for this funny and silly film.

The bullies become the whining scaredy cats and the geeks rule with calm and quick wits so the plot does have a lot to like even if you were not the kid picked on in school. ParaNorman has more than a few good actors that did an excellent job at the voice acting for a fun film that really does take a new stance on stereotyping many things.

ParaNorman is a great looking film and the Blu-ray release has excellent video and audio with great color and wonderful imagery including great lighting. The film does an excellent job all around with the animation and the audio is also very good with an excellent use of surround sound.

Audio has the clearly audible voice with some great music and good use of the sound field for a treat in the sound area that really adds to the films experience. ParaNorman is a great movie and all around with both audio and video they did a fantastic job on the Blu-ray release but bonus content just adds to your fun.

Bonus features include commentary from Chris Butler and Sam Fell, a forty minute making of feature and a set of preliminary animated sequences to browse through for some good extras but not quite enough to make a full five star rating. The extras are well worth a look for adults for a peek at how they make animated films and some of the decisions made to include or get rid of parts like those preliminary clips where some of the scenes turn out slightly different.

ParaNorman is one of those rare animated films that has enough for both adults and kids to enjoy with plenty of laughs for all as well as breaking many clichés. I highly recommend ParaNorman for a purchase to enjoy form time to time, especially those Halloween parties and sleepovers.

Pixar Short Films Collection 2 Blu-ray

Pixar is the animation studio offshoot of Disney created in 1979 as Graphics Group and later named Pixar Animation Studios in 1986. When you hear Pixar a few things come to mind like Toy Story and the lamp logo but short films also come to mind and now Pixar has its second collection for fans.

Pixar short films are created to showcase what the studio can do with animations which are released theatrically along with their feature films and for specific clients. Many of Pixar short films have been nominated with three Academy Awards for Best Animated Short Films for Tin ToyGeri’s Game andFor The Birds.

The second collection of Pixar shorts has 12 short films released from numerous animated films likeWall-EToy Story and Cars with characters from those films. Other shorts such as Partly CloudyLa Luna and Small Fry use new characters developed specifically for the short film but are just as good.

The short films vary in quality in video, audio and entertainment value but all are at least viewable more than once and most are definitely enjoyable. I found many that I had not seen on the animated films for various reasons to be great and well worth viewing numerous times.

The Blu-ray edition contains the Blu-ray disc with all twelve short films, bonus features along with a DVD disc with all twelve short films and a few of the bonus features. The bonus material is alright with commentaries and some looks at earlier short films by the various talents working on the major short films of this release.

The Pixar Short Films Collection 2 is well worth a purchase and in keeping with the first release of shorts a definite must have for animated film enthusiasts.

Jaws Blu-ray

Jaws is the classic Steven Spielberg film from 1975 that caused a craze in many ways including the summer blockbuster and films using simple effects to stir the viewer’s imagination. Due to budget constraints and a lack of special effects in the industry Spielberg was forced to use more hinting and less actual shots of the real monster shark.

Jaws Blu-ray was a classic from the start but not the kind any film maker wants to be part of until the film hits theatres, a joke floated through the cast renaming the film “Flaws”. The film had numerous problems during filming which made the scenes often just hint at the giant shark which is especially evident in the opening attack and the chase scenes.

The first girl attacked is never shown with the shark and the chase scenes were the crew of the Orca chase down the barrels that are keeping the shark from diving deep looks great. At the time the shots were done this way because they did not have a decent looking prop so the film went to editing and the final cut of the movie with these scenes used more imagination and less real monster.

Filming like this now is done more with computer based effects and less viewer imagination but the final cut makes the film a classic in cinematography which was actually a big surprise to the cast and crew. Jaws has taken the world to a new and amazing place with its summer blockbuster creation with big budget films and tons of advertising promoting them.

Jaws Blu-ray has other accolades to its style like the general filming in the big ocean miles from land where you can see a shoreline which adds to the films realism that they are at sea instead of in a big lake. Steven Spielberg certainly misjudged Mother Nature and had many problems with equipment just to get things filmed but he also learned a lot and made do with what he had and a stretched budget.

The actors all did a fantastic job and the difficulties faced in production do not show at all throughout the film but actually make it look like everybody knew what they were doing. The camaraderie shown in the one scene of the men comparing war wounds and singing just before the shark returns to fight back really is at odds with the reality of the filming.

Jaws may have been a disaster to film that really turned out to be a great movie and if you think I am kidding one fact really brings this home. The original screenplay had Richard Dreyfuss’ character dying from the shark attacking him in the shark cage.

Due to some great shots of a shark attacking the empty cage in Australia Spielberg decided to change the outcome of the character and have him survive the attack to appear minutes later. This last minute change in plot is a showcase of the entire film and how in the end everything did work out for the better.

Jaws Blu-ray looks fantastic and is easily the best film I have seen from the 1970’s that has been transferred to Blu-ray and was even under Steven Spielberg’s direction. Rarely does a crew come back to a film so many years later to work on the film in some way but Spielberg helped directly on the transfer to Blu-ray.

The film looks great and color is perfect for each scene without being overly reworked or looking out of place as has happened for older movies transferring to Blu-ray. Jaws Blu-ray has a great transfer and looks very good as well as sounding fantastic with a great 7.1 surround sound track.

Jaws Blu-ray audio from the 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio Track is fantastic and with the remastered track you get the full force that Spielberg wanted for his film. The score and music of the film really hits home and is fantastic with its iconic pieces that have to this day remained a part of movie culture.

Bonus features include a few new ones as well as others that have been released with previous editions of Jaws in the past including about four hours of extras. The two pieces of extras that are an hour and forty minutes and over two hours are from previous editions while one eight minute piece talks with Spielberg and others about the restoration.

The extras are worth it if you have not seen them before but if you have previous editions these would just be rehashing the past. The entire collection does give about as in-depth a look at the film as you’re ever going to get and is well worth viewing all of it.

Jaws Blu-ray is an iconic that spawned the now common practice of huge advertising campaigns and releasing a film worldwide instead of gradually. The film also spurred a type of filming that is now replicated throughout the horror genre and can easily be seen in films even as early as Alien in 1979.

Jaws Blu-ray is a great movie and well worth the purchase price and the Blu-ray edition is fantastic, a must have film if I have ever seen one.
