What's Buzzing on MRQE?
Opening This Week
Hugh Jackman trains a new breed of boxer in REAL STEEL. Ryan Gosling gets caught up in dirty politics in THE IDES OF MARCH. Martin Sheen goes in search of his son (the other one) in THE WAY.
THE IDES OF MARCH -- MRQE Metric: 74
George Clooney's fourth turn in the director's chair finds himself as Gov. Mike Morris, a front-runner for an upcoming Ohio presidential primary that's set to determine if he will secure the nomination. And, in Ryan Gosling's fourth starring role this year, he finds himself as Stephen Meyers, Morris' press secretary who soon learns a lesson in back-room politics. THE IDES OF MARCH is adapted from a play, which was loosely based on Howard Dean's 2004 primary campaign. The film, however, draws more allegory from President Obama's run. THE IDES OF MARCH opened the Venice Film Festival this year, and has garnered great reviews based on the acting chops of its ensemble cast. Will audiences vote for the Clooney/Gosling ticket? >Read the reviews!
On DVD & Blu-ray:
PULP FICTION (Blu-ray) -- MRQE Metric: 91
L.A. mobsters, small-time crooks, a boxer, and a mysterious briefcase all converge in Quentin Tarantino's highly stylized, non-linear crime story PULP FICTION; and with it's MRQE Metric sitting at 90, the critic accolades are too numerous to mention in this blurb. Tarantino's most iconic movie--one that was hotly anticipated for its release in the HD form--is finally here with nearly 6 hours worth of extras, including new interviews with the cast, a half-hour making-of doc, deleted scenes, an episode of Siskel & Ebert At the Movies devoted to Tarantino, a critics roundtable expounding on the film's legacy, and much, much more. If you haven't been turned on to PULP FICTION yet, perhaps these reviews will help. >Read the reviews!
