Castiglia's unique art is highlighted in this great documentary
The Art & Life Of Vincent Castiglia
If you're an artist yourself or simply a fan of art, then you will
want to check out of this artist's unique work as he paints in human
blood! The surreal imagery is both haunting and impressive, as the
level of detail and realism is on point.
film features interviews with not only Vincent Castiglia himself, but
several others including Martin Eric Ain (Musician, Celtic Frost),
Michael Anthony Alago (Record Executive), Gregg Allman, (Musician,
Allman Brothers Band), Sandra Baretta (Motion Designer, SFX), Alf
Battig, (Graphic Designer), Jeff Beverly (Collector), Randy Blythe

have about his portfolio and philosophies.

are the first of a new wave of releases form the vault spanning about
30 years. The first title compiles newscasters is a 2-DVD set
including two contrasting Walter Cronkite interviews (he's retired
from the CBS

of) has two shows, then we get Barbara Walters (Gig Young and Frank
Reynolds show up), Don Hewitt/Morley Safer/Diane Sawyer for 60

DVDs are selections of comedy talent, with V.1
offering a solid Robin Williams turn, Bobcat Goldwater his usual
out-of-control self, Richard Lewis being insightful and Gilbert
Gottfried in rare form being funny but also revealing more than
offers two shows with George Carlin never holding back, Steve Martin
great as usual and Martin Mull with rarely-heard thoughts from the
sometimes forgotten talent. V.3
is a double DVD set with a pre-Sanford
Redd Foxx (1969) and Dick Gregory on DVD 1, joined by Eddie Murphy
and Richard Prior (both 1985) on DVD 2.
always enjoy the show, even if I like some guests more than others,
in part because you never know what Cavett will come up with. Are
the current talk show hosts trying too hard or just being too
commercial? We do not have any who go out of their way to be
understated and funny in a constantly smart way that does not pander
or water-down what they do. Guess Cavett is better than he veer got
credit for, so we hope more DVDs are on the way and soon!

DVDs come from old NTSC videotape over the decades and include analog
videotape flaws including video noise, video banding, telecine
flicker, tape scratching, cross color, faded color and tape damage.
The newer shows offer lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo, while the older
ones have lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono (the change happening by the
1980s) and they also sound as fine as they can with that old codec,
but I bet lossless versions with some cleaning up would be even

a world where the Government paid you basic income for just being an
American citizen... and yes, that's on top of your work salary.
Wouldn't that be nice? This unconventional income movement is
discussed in depth in the documentary The
Free Lunch Society
(2017). The film brings up a lot of interesting sides on the subject
and most surprising is that this practice was actually tried in
Alaska and other places to much avail. The film goes in depth from
political perspectives, interesting clips from popular culture, and
well conducted interviews.
in standard definition on DVD with an anamorphic widescreen aspect
ratio of 2.35:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, the film looks and
sounds fine for the format. Compression issues evident (especially
when comparing directly to HD), but the overall presentation doesn't
have any noticeable issues outside of its limitations.
Features include The
Free Lunch Society Talk Show
with Michael Bohmeyer and three Promotional Web Clips.
is a very interesting documentary that everyone should check out.

sport BlizzCon, which centers around the computer game StarCraft

became a groundbreaking video game and would go on to become the
foundation of esports and the force behind the online streaming
medium Twitch. This global phenomenon began in the modest South
Korean internet cafes known as PC bangs. It was from these humble
beginnings that our characters "MC" and "MMA"
became prodigies. The documentary follows the two lives of these
players and the toll that the game takes on their personal lives.
film is presented in 1080p on Blu-ray disc with a widescreen aspect
ratio of 1.78:1 and audio tracks in both lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 and
2.0 surround mixes. Some different languages pop up and are
accompanied by English subtitles. Being a documentary, there were
obviously different formats at play in its creation including HD
video and news clips, etc. There are some beautiful time-lapse
photography shots and sweeping images of the competition when the
event is taking place. Overall, the visuals are solid and the
editing and overall filmmaking behind this is very well done.
only extra is an HD trailer.
