New to On Demand and DVD: The Lion King (2019)

Remaking a classic poses extreme risks. Viewers will ultimately compare the current vision to the original offering, and it will lead to some positive as well as negative results. With Disney remaking the classic 1994 animated offering of The Lion King, the risks are great, but the rewards include opening the story for a new generation of viewers and bringing in a whole big bucket of cash. The plot stays true to the original. Mufasa (voice of James Earl Jones) stands as the leader with young Simba set to one day inherit his father’s kingdom. But trouble is brewing as […]

New to On Demand and DVD: Stuber

Ridesharing is an easy way to get around town when you can’t or don’t want to drive. I’ve used it on a number of trips, and I always find myself in the back seat of a new and interesting driver’s vehicle in a variety of cities. But I’ve also heard the stories — the stories of the rides that aren’t as basic as mine. And when you take a cop looking to catch a bad guy and put him in the car of a driver desperate for a good rating, you get the film Stuber. Stu (Kumail Nanjiani) is an […]
