No Time For Sergeants dvd review

If all you know of Andy Griffith as an actor is the mild mannered sheriff of Mayberry or the southern gentleman lawyer Matlock, this film will have you looking at Griffith in a brand new way.  This is one of the all time great performances by Griffith and one of the best comedies of the 1950s.

The Men Who Stare At Goats Blu-Ray

“The Men Who Stare At Goats” is a comedy that is based on an actual military squad from the U.S. Army in the 80’s.  The film is very funny in subtle ways, and is a great satire on military programs and their funding.  George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey lead the cast but Clooney and McGregor are the main characters.  McGregor plays a journalist who hears a story about a unique psychic soldier squad anf soon stumbles across Clooney in Iraq.  Through a series of flashbacks, Clooney tells of the squad and its founder (Jeff Bridges), who got funding to develop a non-lethal unit that would use their minds to control the enemy.  Part of this training involved drug use, meditation and a general hippie philosophy preached by Bridges.  His character is very reminiscent of the “Dude”. As Clooney is telling the story, the two also have an adventure of their own in Iraq, being kidnapped by terrorists and hiding out while street battles erupt around them. Continue reading

The Informant! Blu-Ray

As the cover states, “Matt Damon is The Informant”, a sly comedy with another brilliant performance from Damon.  Having conquered the action thriller, Damon turns to witty comedy in this true tale of Mark Whitacre, the highest ranking corporate whistleblower in U.S. history.  Whitacre contacts the FBI about price fixing in the corn industry, which sends in FBI agent (Scott Bakula) to investigate.  Bakula convinces Whitacre to start recording the deals that are to be made  but soon discovers there is a lot more to the story then Whitacre has told him.  The comedy of this film builds as we discover bit by bit what Whitacre and others are up to.   The comedy is subtle but witty and this film will stand up to more than a few viewings. Continue reading
