Cohen Media Group will release two of Buster Keaton’s classic pictures next month.

The General and Steamboat Bill Jr. are set for release on DVD and Blu-ray on May 14 in what is being titled The Buster Keaton CollectionVolume 1.  Both movies are considered some of Keaton’s best works, and are even featured in the National Film Registry.

The General (1926) is considered by many critics to be the last truly standout movie of the silent era.  It is listed at No. 18 on the American Film Institute’s 100 Greatest American Films and at No. 34 on the latest Sight & Sound critics poll of the movie industry’s greatest movies.

The civil war movie features Keaton as train engineer Johnnie Gray.  Gray’s train is taken by Union spies, leading him on a chase to reclaim the locomotive.

Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928) stars Keaton as the son of a steamboat captain. Keaton’s character rescues a young woman following a cyclone, to prove his love for her, and later has to face her father man to man to show even more how much he loves the young woman.

Along with the two main features, The Buster Keaton CollectionVol. 1 will also feature the bonus featurettes “Reflections on The General” and “Buster Keaton: The Luminary.

The Buster Keaton CollectionVolume 1 will retail for MSRP of $30.99 (Blu-ray) and $25.99 (DVD).  More information on this release and other titles from Cohen Media Group is available online now at:

CMG’s ‘The Old Dark House’ Re-Issue Is Sure To “Scare Up” Plenty Of Fans

Courtesy: Cohen Media Group

Halloween night is almost upon us, and in celebration of the big night, Turner Classic Movies has a full slate of movies throughout the day and night sure to give people plenty of good scares.  From White Zombie to the original 1960 take of 13 Ghosts to the original 1963 take of The Haunting and more, the greatest classic movies network has plenty on its schedule to help audiences celebrate Halloween in the safety of their own homes.  As notable as most of the movies on the network’s schedule are, it does have some lesser-known yet just as spine-tingling movies on its list including The Old Dark House.  Originally released in 1932 by Universal Pictures, starring Boris Karloff and directed by James Whaley (who also directed Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, The Man in the Iron Mask, etc.), it was recently re-issued on Blu-ray Oct. 24 via Cohen Media Group.  This movie is one of the hidden gems of Karloff’s career and a work that every horror purist will want to own now that it has finally been re-issued.  That is due in no small part to the movie’s story, which will be discussed shortly.  The approach taken in the story’s presentation is just as important to note in examining the movie as the story itself.  It will be discussed later.  The bonus material included with the movie’s new re-issue rounds out its most important elements.  Each element is important in its own right to the movie’s presentation.  All things considered, they make Cohen Media Group’s re-issue of The Old Dark House a re-issue that will shine in any horror movie purist’s collection.

Cohen Media Group’s brand new re-issue of Universal Pictures’ 1932 classic horror/thriller The Old Dark House is a release that is certain to shine in any horror movie purist’s collection.  That is due in no small part to its story, which is relatively simple to follow.  A group of people trying to get out of a bad storm end up together in a creepy old house with some equally creepy figures.  When one of those really creepy figures (played by Boris Karloff) gets hold of some alcohol, the danger to the group of strangers becomes very real.  This is a storyline that has been used any number of times since this movie’s debut.  In some cases, it has worked.  In just as many cases, it has failed in grand fashion.  Considering this, The Old Dark House is among the best of the story’s instances.

Adding even more importance to the story is that the 72-minute tale takes place over the course of a single night in the creepy old house, thus keeping the story from getting too bogged down in itself.  Even with the characters’ interweaving storylines added to that central story, the focus remains clearly on the group’s attempts to survive into the morning.  The overall simplicity in the story’s time frame and plot setup are collectively so simple that collectively, they alone give audiences plenty to enjoy here.  They are also collectively just one of the most important of the movie’s elements.  The overall approach to the story is just as important to note in examining the movie as the story itself.

The approach to The Old Dark House’s story is so important because it heightens the story’s tension, and in turn, makes the movie that much more engaging.  The subtle use of lighting throughout the movie is just one important part of the approach that creates that tension.  There are also certain shots throughout the movie that utilize a certain “fuzzing” effect that is just as subtle as the lighting effects.  That subtle aesthetic effect adds even more impact to the movie’s approach, and in turn makes the movie that much more engaging for audiences.  On yet another level, audiences will take note of the juxtaposition of Morgan’s (played by Boris Karloff) diabolical side to his surprisingly humane side as another important part of the movie’s approach.  That element of the movie’s approach is certain to generate its own interest and discussion among audiences.  Keeping all of this in mind, it becomes clear just why the approach taken to The Old Dark House is so important to its overall presentation.  It is not the last of the movie’s most important elements, either.  The bonus material included with the movie is just as important to note as the approach to the movie and its story.

The bonus material included in The Old Dark House’s brand new re-issue rounds out its most important elements.  Audiences get lots of bonuses in this re-issue, too. The sit-down interview with Boris Karloff’s daughter Sara in which she discusses her father’s distaste for gory horror movies, the three most important elements of his own acting profile, and her own surprising admission about how long it took her to watch some of her father’s works (among other topics) is one of the most important of the movie’s bonuses.  The feature-length audio commentary with Gloria Stuart adds even more depth to the movie’s overall presentation.  Audiences learn through her commentary early on about her cast mates complaining about the shooting schedule as well as the fear factor of certain scenes as well as so much more.  That’s only within the movie’s first half hour or so.  Audiences will also appreciate the discussion on the movie’s restoration and the interview included in the movie’s companion booklet.  When this is all joined with the feature-length commentary from James Curtis, the whole of these bonuses adds so much depth to the movie that their importance simply cannot be argued or ignored.  Keeping this in mind, the bonus material included in this re-issue puts the final touch to the movie’s overall presentation.  When this is considered along with the importance of the movie’s story and the approach to the story, the end result is a movie that every horror purist will appreciate whether on Halloween or another time of year.

Cohen Media Group’s brand new re-issue of Universal Pictures’ 1932 horror thriller classic The Old Dark House is a release that every horror purist will appreciate not just on Halloween but at any time of the year.  That is due in no small part to its story, which is so enjoyable thanks to its simplicity.  The overall approach to the story’s presentation – both in terms of its aesthetic elements and other content – strengthens the movie’s presentation even more.  The rich breadth of bonus material included in the movie’s new re-issue rounds out its most important elements.  Each element is important in its own right to the movie’s whole. All things considered, the noted elements make The Old Dark House a title that is certain to “scare up” plenty of horror movie purists.  It is available now in stores and online.  More information on this and other titles from Cohen Media Group is available online at:

Churchill Saved By Its Cast, Look

Courtesy: Cohen Media Group

World War II is one of the most powerful eras in the history of human civilization.  That is because it displayed the absolute best and worst of humanity.  Because the two polar opposites were so extreme in their differences, they also led to the creation of some of the greatest and most memorable movies of all time.  Movies such as Patton, Tora Tora Tora, the Longest Day and so many others have gone on to become cinematic masterpieces despite being movies based on actual events.  On June 2, 2017, yet another movie added itself to that list of movies certain to become unforgettable works centered on WWII when Salon Pictures debuted ChurchillChurchill, while being another movie based on actual events, is still a WWII-centric cinematic experience that is certain to engage and entertain audiences across the board.  That is due in part to its central story, which will be discussed shortly.  The work of the movie’s cast cannot be ignored either.  It is just as notable as the movie’s story, and will be discussed later.  Last but hardly least of note here is the work of those responsible for the cast’s costumes and makeup as well as finding sets that would make the movie even more realistic.  Each element is undeniably important in its own right to the movie’s whole.  All things considered, they make Churchill a movie that lovers and students of history and military history alike will appreciate.

Salon Pictures’ new WWII-centric movie Churchill is not the first time that a movie studio has ever focused on a famed figure from that awful war.  Even with this in mind, it still proves itself a biopic/based on actual events story that lovers and students of history and military history alike will appreciate.  That is due in part to the movie’s central story.  The story focuses on British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s difficult decision whether or not to have British forces take part in the Normandy invasion that the world now knows as D-Day.  Throughout the course of the story, audiences see a side of Churchill that has rarely, if ever, been shown in movies or on television.  Rather than the strong, confident man that history has presented Churchill as being, he is shown here as an emotionally fragile man. A man who is struggling to come to terms with the death of so many British soldiers during WWI.  That struggle leads him to struggle with the decision of whether or not British forces should take part in D-Day and the impact that it has on not only him, but those around him, too.  Those around him include his own wife, who according to this story, nearly leaves him as a result of his internal struggle, his secretary, whose fiancé is scheduled to take part in the D-Day invasion and his fellow British and even American counterparts.  Keeping all of this in mind, the man vs. himself storyline is really nothing new to the cinematic world (and the literary world).  Even with that in mind, audiences will find themselves completely pulled into the story, waiting to see how long it takes Churchill (played expertly by Brian Cox – Braveheart, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy) to finally come to his epiphany and to come to terms with the past.  Cox’s work and that of his cast mates will be discussed shortly.  Keeping all of this in mind, even though Churchill’s story is essentially another based-on-actual events story with a familiar man vs. himself center, it is still a work that the previously noted audiences will appreciate because it is a story that has rarely if ever, been told.  It is only one of the movie’s key elements.  The work of the movie’s cast is just as important to note in examining the movie as its story.

The work put in by Churchill’s cast is so important to note in examining the movie’s whole because it is just as much to thank for audiences’ maintained engagement and entertainment throughout the movie.  As already noted, Cox’s take on the movie’s titular figure leads the way.  From one end of the emotional spectrum to the other, Cox makes Churchill a strong sympathetic figure for which viewers will feel so much emotion throughout the movie.  Whether in his powerful arguments with his British officers and American Gen. Ike Eisenhower, his equally moving moments in which he is forced to confront the past or even his own personal moments with his wife Clemmie (Miranda Richardson – Empire of the Sun, Sleepy Hollow, The Phantom of the Opera), Cox handles every moment expertly, keeping viewers fully engaged.  While Richardson does not appear on screen as much as Cox, she still adds her own depth to the movie as she takes on Clemmie’s own emotional struggle in dealing with Winston.  While the pair are the movie’s main stars, they are not the movie’s only notables.  John Slattery (Mad Men, Iron Man 2, Captain America: Civil War) and Ella Purnell (Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, Kick-Ass 2, Never Let Me Go) add their own touch to the movie, too as Gen. Eisenhower and as Churchill’s secretary Helen Garrett.  Between their performances, those of Cox and Richardson, and the rest of the cast, the work put in by all involved forms a solid foundation for Churchill.  The foundation formed by the cast’s work is really the movie’s most critical element considering the familiarity of the story’s style and approach.  Whether or not Cox, Richardson or any of their cast mates are deserving of awards for their performances can be debated for days.  Awards or not, one cannot argue how impressive the cast is on screen.  Keeping that in mind, it becomes clear why the work of Churchill’s cast is so important to the movie’s whole.  Even with its clear importance, it still is not the last of the movie’s most crucial elements.  The work of those behind the cameras – most notably those responsible for the movie’s look – deserves its own credit.

The work put in by Churchill’s costume, makeup and set departments put the finishing touch to the movie’s presentation.  It is thanks to their work that while the movie overall has a very streamlined look, it also boasts a look similar to its forebears.  Audiences will marvel at the vintage military uniforms worn by Slattery and Danny Webb, who plays Field Marshall Alan Brooke.  Much the same can be said of Mr. and Mrs. Churchill’s attire.  The backdrops used for each scene do just as much to take viewers back in time as do the camera lenses and other visual tools used throughout the movie.  The whole of those visual tools and effects leaves the movie’s visual presentation just as solid as the work of the movie’s cast.  When the two elements are coupled with the movie’s story that is given, basic and familiar especially for war movies, the whole of those elements makes the movie worth at least one watch by lovers and students of history and military history.

Salon Films’ recently released WWII-centered human drama Churchill is a movie that is certain to appeal to lovers and students of history and more specifically military history.  That is thanks in part to a story that while not exactly anything new to the military history genre (or drama genre) is still an interesting new take on one of the most famed figures of the war.  The work of the movie’s cast forms the movie’s foundation.  If for no other reason than the cast’s work, audiences will want to watch this movie.  The movie’s look puts the finishing touch on Churchill’s presentation.  The work put in by the movie’s costume and makeup department couples with the work put in by those responsible for choosing the movie’s sets and those behind the lenses to put the finishing touch on the movie.  That work and that of the movie’s cast are what make suspension of disbelief in this otherwise average modern war movie possible.  In turn, they are what make the movie appealing at least to lovers and students of history and military history.  Churchill is available now in stores and online.  More information on this and other titles from Cohen Media Group is available online now at:

Courtesy: Cohen Media Group

Cohen Media Group is bringing the hard-hitting World War II historical drama Churchill home next month.

Churchill will be released Oct. 3 on DVD and Blu-ray through the independent movie studio.  The movie stars actor Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Identity, Braveheart) as Britain’s beloved Prime Minister Winston Churchill as he led the nation through the war.

In the case of this movie, audiences watch as Churchill wrestles with himself over whether or not to take part in the invasion of Normandy, considering the result of the World War I Battle of Gallipoli.  That battle saw more than 500,000 soldiers die in the line of duty.

In considering whether or not to join the operation, Churchill also finds himself at odds with U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower (played here by John Slattery—Mad Men, Captain America: Civil War, Iron Man 2) and British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery (played here by Julian Wadham—The English Patient, War Horse, Exorcist: The Beginning).  Churchill’s wife Clementine (played here by Miranda Richardson—Dance With a Stranger, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Sleepy Hollow) ultimately helps Churchill as he comes to terms with his decision after the intervention of King George VI in discussions between the leaders.

Churchill is rated PG.  It will retail for MSRP of $30.99 on Blu-ray and $25.99 on DVD.  The 105-minute main feature will be accompanied by a selection of bonus features.

‘The People vs. Fritz Bauer’ Deserves A Positive Verdict

Courtesy: Cohen Media Group

Late this past January, independent movie studio Cohen Media Group released the German import The People vs. Fritz Bauer on DVD and Blu-ray.  The movie, which was originally released by Zero One Film internationally in 2015, was released domestically on DVD and Blu-ray this past January courtesy of Cohen Media Group. On the surface, this movie is just another entry into an already overly crowded field of movies based on actual events.  This includes both the mainstream and independent realm.  Even with that in mind, it actually stands out in that field.  That is due in part to the story at the center of this movie.  This will be discussed shortly.  The work of the movie’s cast is just as important to note as its story.  It will be discussed later.  The movie’s bonus material rounds out its most important elements.  Each element is important in its own right to the movie’s presentation.  All things considered, they make this movie based on actual events a work that deserves a positive verdict from true cinephiles everywhere.

Cohen Media Group’s recent domestic home release of The People vs. Fritz Bauer is a presentation that deserves a positive verdict from true cinephiles everywhere.  That is due in part to the story at the center of this work.  The story is based on actual events, as already noted.  It also is hardly the first movie to ever be raised from the era of WWII.  So that leaves the question what set it apart from other works of its ilk.  The answer is that it presents a part of Fritz Bauer’s life—his more personal, private life—that few movies have ever told.  This is explained in the movie’s bonus making of featurette, and will be discussed later.  It is only one part of what makes the story stand out, too.  Audiences will note that this story doesn’t have the overly melodramatic mood established in its American counterparts that have been churned out ever since Hollywood’s golden age.  Yes, even those movies are suspect for their level of melodrama.  That is not to say that this movie doesn’t have its own level of melodrama.  But it is nowhere near the level included in so many American movies centered on WWII.  Now whether or not it overly embellishes Bauer’s efforts to capture Eichmann this critic is ashamed to say is unknown.  Odds are though, there likely is some over embellishment.  That is just the norm of movies based on actual events.  One can only hope that writer/director Lars Kraume and co-writer Olivier Guez didn’t let that embellishment become too prevalent.  That aside, the deep examination of Bauer’s personal life and his drive to capture Eichmann is reason enough for audiences to watch this German-language movie.  It is just one of the reasons that cinephiles should see this imported WWII story.  The work of the movie’s cast is just as important to note as the story in examining its overall presentation.

The story at the center of The People vs. Fritz Bauer is in itself plenty of reason for true cinephiles to watch this imported WWII-centered movie.  It is just one of the reasons that it is worth the watch.  The work of the movie’s cast is just as worth mentioning as the movie’s story.  Burghart KlauBner leads the way in every sense of the phrase as the movie’s title character. His portrayal of Bauer will keep audiences rapt throughout the course of the story’s nearly two-hour run time.  That is proven in his interactions with co-star Ronald Zehrfeld and even in his solo time on screen.  From the pair’s more lighthearted moments to the more tense times, Klaubner and Zherfeld’s interactions in themselves will keep audiences engaged from beginning to end.  KlauBner’s handling of Bauer’s fear when he is being harassed by unseen Nazi sympathizers is just as impressive. He makes the tension in those scenes fully believable.  This makes those moments just as impressive as his moments on screen with Zehrfeld.  The end result of KlauBner’s work in his solo and split scenes proves why his performance overall is just as important to note in examining this movie as its story.  Of course Zehrfeld’s performance, while far less prominent, is still impressive in its own right.  He will keep audiences just as engaged as KlauBner as he struggles with his own personal demons, which will not be revealed here.  Keeping all of this in mind, KlauBner and Zehrfeld’s performance show throughout the movie why their work is just as important to this movie’s presentation as that of the movie’s writing team.  It still is not the last element worth noting in examining the movie’s presentation.  The bonus material included with the movie in its home release is just as important to note as the already noted elements.

The work of The People vs. Fritz Bauer’s writing team and that of its main cast are both key elements to discuss in examining the movie’s overall presentation.  That is because of the depth that each element adds to the movie’s overall presentation.  They are not its only important elements.  The bonus material that is included with the movie in its recent domestic home release is just as important to note as the previously discussed elements.  The bonus “making of” featurette is an important extra because it provides a certain back story to the movie that adds to audiences’ appreciation of the story.  That is because it explains this side of Bauer’s story has rarely if ever been told.  The deleted scenes add even more depth because they, like so many movies both mainstream and indie, show how much was gained and lost through each one.  Some scenes, in this critic’s view, should have been kept.  Others meanwhile were justifiably left out.  The whole of those scenes joins with the bonus “making of” featurette to make the movie even more surprisingly entertaining.  When the movie’s bonus commentary is set alongside those elements, all three bonuses combine to put the finishing touch on the movie’s presentation.  That is not to say that the movie’s cinematography, shooting locations, and costume and makeup staff are not to be commended.  They deserve their own mentions, too.  They are worth noting in discussions about the movie’s aesthetic value.  When that discussion is joined with the already noted discussions, the whole of those discussions shows why this German imported WWII story deserves a positive verdict.

Cohen Media Group’s domestic home release of The People vs. Fritz Bauer is a presentation that fully deserves a positive verdict from cinephiles and critics alike.  That is due to its story, which despite being another work based on actual events, doesn’t allow itself to become the overly melodramatic events that so many of its counterparts past and present have proven to be.  It also presents a side of Bauer’s story that has rarely, if ever, been told. The work of the movie’s main cast plays into the movie’s presentation just as much as that of the movie’s writing team.  The extensive bonus material included with the movie’s recent domestic home release rounds out its most important elements, but is hardly its last element worth noting.  Those behind the lens, the costumes and makeup and even shooting location choices are deserving of credit, too.  Each element is clearly important in its own right to the movie’s whole.  All things considered, The People vs. Fritz Bauer proves to be a work that, once more, fully deserves a positive verdict from critic and cinephiles alike.  It is available now in stores and online.  More information on this and other titles from Cohen Media Group is available online now at:
