[DVD Review] Kathleen Madigan: Gone Madigan

There are very few female comedians in the world today but funny lady Kathleen Madigan has proven herself to be one of the best and her new stand-up act Kathleen Madigan: Gone Madigan has just been released on Blu-ray.

Madigan is honest and to the point. Although she is a woman, she displays serious proof of having “balls.” Like many great comedians, she is fearless and doesn’t give a crap who she offends. Shot at the Gramercy Theater in New York City, this 64-minute stand-up set is truly, truly funny. The topics Madigan discusses are current and her comedic timing is impeccable.

Veteran comedian and perpetually angry Lewis Black is the opening act for Madigan, giving her a very sweet introduction. We are then taken on a journey into Madigan’s mad world. She starts things off by talking about a New Year’s resolution she hopes to

Marc’s Blu-ray Review Round Up (Vol. 3)

Buried

Intense & claustrophobic, the film pulls you in right from the start. Ryan Reynolds does an astounding job, giving what I believe to be the performance of his career. While the whole film takes place inside of a coffin, it remains thrilling & exciting to watch the entire time.

The film has a definite Hitchcockian feel to it, and much like it has been said before by other people who have watched the film, Rodrigo Cortés has made a film this is just as astounding as Alfred Hitchcok would have conceived, had he been given this script while he was alive.

I say that this film is definitely worth a viewing, especially if you like Ryan Reynolds. His fantastic acting skills are on full display for you during each and every minute of the picture. It’s a shame he wasn’t nominated for any acting awards for this film, because I believe he earned one.

DVD Playhouse--January 2011

DVD Playhouse: January 2011

By

Allen Gardner

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (20th Century Fox) Sequel to the seminal 1980s film catches up with a weathered, but still determined Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas, who seems to savor every syllable of Allan Loeb and Stephen Schiff’s screenplay) just out of jail and back on the comeback trail. In attempting to repair his relationship with his estranged daughter (Carey Mulligan), Gekko forges a reluctant alliance with her fiancé (Shia Labeouf), himself an ambitious young turk who finds himself seduced by Gekko’s silver tongue and promise of riches. Lifeless film is further evidence of director Oliver Stone’s decline. Once America’s most exciting filmmaker, Stone hasn’t delivered a film with any teeth since 1995’s Nixon. Labeouf and Mulligan generate no sparks on-screen, and the story feels forced from the protracted opening to the final, Disney-esque denouement. Only a brief cameo by Charlie Sheen,
