DVD Talk reviews for Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

Highly Recommended
The 12th Man (Blu-ray)
by Olie Coen

Director: Harald Zwart
Starring: Thomas Gullestad, Jonathan Rhys Meyers
Year: 2017

You wouldn't expect a potential contender for a Best Foreign Film nomination at the Academy Awards to be directed by the guy who brought us One Night at McCool's, Agent Cody Banks, Pink Panther 2, The Karate Kid, and Mortal Instruments, but here we are. Harald Zwart returns to his Norwegian roots with a movie to leave all his other crappy attempts at cinema in the dust, a true story to make us forget the sins he committed in Hollywood and assuredly vows never to repeat as long as we all shall live, amen. I joke, but it's shocking the drastic change between this director's previous style and this current offering, a film that has '...Read the entire review »

On her days off from work her eyes would be glued to her laptop for hours, watching five or six episodes, one after the other. I only caught bits and pieces of that show, but then the first year of The Good Fight fell into our unloved DVD screener pool and I grabbed it, mainly so that she could watch it.

I'm glad now that I did, because The Good Fight turned out to be a very smart and even boldly political series exploring controversial, ripped-from-the-headlines topics in the Trump era. The very first shot of the first first-se...Read the entire review »


MacGyver: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray)
by Randy Miller III

Forgive the brevity on this one...but with a show like Lee David Zlotof's MacGyver (1985-93), what you see is what you get. Almost immediately popular with audiences for its international locales, adventure, and the undeniable charisma of star Richard Dean Anderson, this series served as the lead-in for ABC's Monday Night Football during six of its seven seasons and is still firmly anchored in American pop culture. Even if you've never sat through a single episode, you've likely heard the phrase named after its main character: MacGyver is synonymous with using creative, resourceful solutions ...Read the entire review »
