Citizen Kane Review for Blu-Ray Elite!!!

Orson Welles’ 1941 drama, Citizen Kane, is hailed by many as one of the greatest films ever made. I have always wanted to see this film, mainly because of that bold statement. Being a part of the Warner Bros. blu-ray elite program, I finally got to witness the intelligence of Orson Welles and the masterpiece that is Citizen Kane. The film was written, directed and also stars Welles as the title role, Charles Foster Kane. Citizen Kane focuses on a newspaper tycoon that lives a tumultuous life and then dies, uttering his last word which was ‘rosebud.’ When the press learns of his death, people go through great lengths to discover what rosebud meant to Kane. The private man never really expressed emotions and never revealed his life to anyone. One man’s job is to discover what rosebud meant, and leads the audience through different characters’ point of views of Kane.


Disney Pixar never disappoints. The production company’s latest animated blockbuster flick, Brave centers on a young princess, named Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) who is not ready to commit to her kingdom’s tradition of choosing a husband after each appropriate suitor competes in certain physical tasks (i.e. archery, throwing tree logs, etc.). When Princess Merida decides to change her fate, she calls upon a witch to cast a spell in hopes to change the path she’s on, but the spell isn’t quite what she asks for, and situations take a turn for the worst. Can Merida find out how to change the spell or will she and her family and their kingdom be doomed for life?

A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas is another comedy Warner Bros. sent me through the Blu-Ray Elite program. The film stars the original duo, John Cho and Kal Penn in a Christmas tale, focusing on Harold attempting to do the right thing, and desperately trying to impress his father-in-law for the holiday season. But when his father-in-law leaves him in charge to watch his most prized procession-a Christmas tree-Kumar somehow manages to destroy the tree and forces the over-the-top pair to embark on an absurd adventure to find the perfect tree to create the best Christmas for Harold and his wife’s family.

Horrible Bosses Review for Blu-Ray Elite!!!

Comedies nowadays are becoming more and more vulgar, raunchy and crude. The latest blu-ray Warner Bros. sent me was Horrible Bosses starring Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell and Jennifer Aniston. The film is extremely funny, if you enjoy the kind of gross humor the film portrays. Horrible Bosses focuses on three best friends that actually enjoy their jobs but loathe their managers. They come up with a plan that in order to make their lives better and truly love their jobs is to murder their bosses.
