comedian Steve Coogan stars in Greed (2019), which is a
mediocre comedy/drama about a selfish British billionaire (played by
Coogan), whose made his riches in the fashion world despite his at
times questionable lifestyle. As a biographer attempts to write
about him, he finds himself in the center of madness in this
expensive world fueled by greed.
film also stars Isla Fisher, Asa Butterfield, David Mitchell, and
is presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio
of 2.39:1 and a nice sounding DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless
mix. The film has nice photography in Greece and nice detail on the
characters that push the Blu-ray further. The film has a great
soundtrack too with plenty of recognizable newer tracks including
Beck and others.
a Behind the Scenes Vignette
nothing else, Greed shows that even if you are rich that you
can still be a terrible person. This is illustrated not only by the
main character, but much of the supporting cast as well. Some
moments are pretty funny and over the top, while others will make you
hate many of the characters onscreen. All in all, I found Greed
to be a mixed bag.
Mike Judge, the man who brought us Beavis
comes the sixth and final season of the HBO comedy Silicon
(2014 - 2019). The show is intelligently written and doesn't seem to
be a far cry from what it actually would be like working in Silicon
Valley, thus bringing us to Silicon
Valley: The Complete Sixth & Final Season
series stars Thomas Middleitch, Amanda Crew, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach
Woods, Martin Starr, and Jimmy O. Yang to name a few. The show (of
course) takes place in the competitive world of Silicon Valley, where
an ambitious company named Pied Piper struggles to survive. The
bumbling crew of super nerds that work there are constantly trying to
maintain quota while facing their competitor YaoNet.
Six has seven episodes contained on one DVD that make up the
final season which includes Artificial Lack of Intelligence, Blood
Money, Hooli Smokes, Maximizing Alphaness, Tethics, RussFest, and
Valley is presented in anamorphically enhanced, standard
definition on DVD with a 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio and a lossy
5.1 English Dolby Digital mix. Compression issues are evident with
the quality here being comparable likely to streaming the show.
While it would have been nice to have the show on the Blu-ray format
for home video, it appears that HBO hasn't issues this or the fifth
season on HD yet, but DVD only. You can get the first four seasons
on Blu-ray, however, some of which are reviewed elsewhere on this
is fine and noble end for Silicon Valley, which for a comedy
had a longer shelf life than most.
Costner and Rene Russo star in Tin
(1996), which has finally landed on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner
Archive Collection. There aren't many movies based on golf it seems,
but this one definitely captures the spirit that one could have for
the sport. This was the time when Costner's career was on a high
note and his chemistry onscreen with Rene Russo here is on point in
fun and easy to watch film, even if you don't like or know much about
Cup also stars Cheech Marin, Joe Costner, Dennis Burkley, Gary
McCord, and Don Johnson. The film is directed by Ron Shelton (Bull
Durham, Cobb, White Men Can't Jump).
McAvoy (Costner) was once known as 'Tin Cup' for his love and talent
for golf. However, his bad attitude always seemed to get in the way,
and cost him a promising career. Running his own business as a golf
instructor in Texas, he falls for his newest student Dr. Molly
Griswolf (Russo), who happens to be dating his arch rival David (Don
Johnson). As David competes for the PGA, Roy decides to give it a
shot too with hopes of winning Molly's heart as well as the
film is presented in 1080p high definition on Blu-ray disc with a
widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1 and a fine sounding track in
English DTS HD MA (Master Audio) lossless 5.1, but it can show its
age in some subtly strained playback, so this was not recorded in a
way emphasizing the best sonics all the time, but is fine otherwise.
The HD video master doesn't look bad as the film is nicely shot and
has aged pretty well. The soundtrack is an interesting mix of laid
back music including some Jimmy Buffet, Chris Isaak, a majority of
Country Pop and the like. All in all the presentation is up to
standards for Blu-ray.
