DVD REVIEW: Scrappy 'Gran Turismo' puts audience in driver's seat

Sun, 10/29/2023 - 8:15am
Totally predictable, “Gran Turismo” doesn’t have the kind of photography that would make this seem like a 1960s Cinerama epic. It’s a fairly scrappy film, filled with drone shots that track the cars but don’t get in the way.

Thu, 10/19/2023 - 9:00am
Visually, "Lessons in Chemistry" hits all the right notes. It looks like the story of a woman in the 1960s. It moves like an expensive vehicle; sadly, it doesn’t have any of the fun – or surprise – of the…
