The newest entry in "The Purge" franchise, "The Forever Purge," is now out on blu-ray, and you're kidding yourself if you think it's not the scariest one yet. The series has always held up a mirror before us so we can see our reality, and the view is getting worse and worse.
There are two ways to view Disney's "Jungle Cruise" movie. The first of these is to dismiss the whole thing is as a cheap IP cash-in. The second is to actually examine what makes the DisneyWorld ride so very good (Disneyland's version as well) and then see what parts of that translate to the film. Why don't we do the latter?
Paramount has just released the first four "Star Trek" movies in a single box on 4K UHD. At its best, "Trek" is aspirational, striving to push us into being better people and doing more for our world (and beyond). Maybe that means they should have done better with this set and released all six movies based on TOS in this set. Maybe not. Instead of focusing on that, let's talk "Trek."
There are a number of possible lessons that one could glean from watching "Nashville" and "A Place in the Sun," but the one that keeps hitting us over and over again is just how wrong we can go with the American Dream. Maybe there's a point at which we should rest on our laurels. Maybe there's a point at which we should accept that we have enough.
