Ed Wood (1994)
on Sunday, January 13, 2013
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!
Alice in Wonderland (2010)
Sofie goes down the rabbit hole for Alice in Wonderland, another visually impressive yet incoherent mess from Tim Burton, starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice. Watch and wonder how a movie this mediocre made a billion damn dollars.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.Skyfall (2012)
“Granted, it’s far, far superior to the last meta-Bond film they tried (that would be Die Another Day), but it doesn’t have much of an identity of its own.”The problem with Big Hero 6...
“It was a bit frustrating to see a supporting cast of instantly lovable and visually dynamic characters end up as little more than set dressing.”Inglourious Basterds (2009)
“It’s hard to fault a film for not being what you want it to be, but one can’t help but wonder what would happen if Tarantino treated his material with a little more maturity or respect.”Total Recall (1990)
Recently, Hollywood made an attempt to wipe the original Total Recall from your memory, but The DVD Shelf is here to remember it for you—wholesale! We'll delve into the Schwarzenegger classic, beginning with the original Philip K. Dick short story that inspired it, the film's lengthy development, and how they pulled it all together. And, yes, we'll even look at that remake.
