I Heart Huckabees in a 2004, philosophical ensemble comedy directed by David O.Russell with a cast including Dustin Hoffman, Isabelle Huppert, Jude Law, Jason Schwartzman, Lily Tomlin, Mark Wahlberg and Naomi Watts. The film is fun, and I caught it at a film-festival when it was originally released, but it struggled to find an audience, and met mixed reviews. Since it is not available on Blu-ray, I thought I’d take a look at the iTunes HD version.
Third Man On The Mountain is a 1959 Disney family-adventure film directed by Ken Annakin and written by Eleanore Griffin based on a book (‘Banner in the Sky’) by James Ramsey Ullman and stars Michael Rennie, James MacArthur and Janet Munro. Since the house-of-the-mouse hasn’t released it on Blu-ray, I thought I’d take a look at the 1080p iTunes HD version.
Disney’s 1969 comedy-drama film, Rascal is an adaptation of Sterling North’s autobiographical memoir of the same name. Directed by Disney regular Norman Tokar and adapted by prolific TV writer Harold Swanton, Bill Mumy stars in this boy meets-cute Racoon tale, set in 1918 Wisconsin. Since the DVD version is somewhat aspect ratio deficient, and Rascal is not on blu-ray yet, I thought I’d take a quick look at the iTunes 1080p HD version – to see if it’s worth your time.
