It's the debut episode of The DVD Shelf, where your host David Rose reveals, reviews, and recommends the movies you should have on your own DVD shelf! He takes a look at the Tim Burton film Ed Wood, starring Johnny Depp as one of the worst directors in history, and delves into Wood's real life to see how it compares to Burton’s hilarious vision of the man. Plus: a look at the Ed Wood Special Edition DVD. All this and more on the show where movies are celebrated, not incinerated!
Transcendence (2014): Johnny Depp 2.0 hacks actual clouds
“Just like with Christopher Nolan’s films, the action isn’t very exciting, and it feels forced into the story because the filmmakers were afraid no one would care about a sci-fi movie without explosions and shootouts.”Interstellar (2014): a recap (part 1 of 3)
“Despite the epic length, most of the cast will turn out to have existed to explore ideas or play second fiddle to the father/daughter relationship.”Boyhood (2014)
“While a lot of people will see it due to all the awards and accolades it received in the last year, this is primarily a film made by a cinephile for cinephiles.”Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
In this episode, we take nearly one hour to look at the beloved live-action/animation hybrid Who Framed Roger Rabbit! We'll cover everything from the inception of the original novel, to the years it took to get to the big screen, the century-old techniques used to bring the story to life, and the film's expansive 2-disc DVD set.Interstellar (2014): a recap (part 2 of 3)
“The second act is a prolonged science lesson with some first-year philosophy thrown in for good measure, albeit a visually stunning lesson with some good action pieces and special effects.”Batman (1989)
“Batman is a testament to how with enough hype, even a fundamentally mediocre film can break box office records and automatically become a ‘classic’ after the requisite number of years have passed.”
