Monthly Special Zoom Presentations!

Hudak On Hollywood is excited to offer presentations at a discounted rate during the 2020-21 season. The presentations will be given at the below dates and times as a webinar via Zoom live streaming.

The Freshman

One of the major advantages of comedy over drama is that in comedy, consequences don’t have to matter. Take for example the opening scene of 1990’s “The Freshman,” in which Clark Kellogg (Matthew Broderick) takes one final hunting trip with stepdad Dwight…

Love and Monsters

The post-apocalyptic landscape of “Love and Monsters” would not be out of place in a zombie movie. The aerial shots show us the peace and tranquility of dense, calm forests and the tree-lined streets of suburbia. Then a closer look betrays the reason why all is so peaceful.

Honest Thief

“Honest Thief” reminded me of a thought I had in regard to Liam Neeson while watching “Taken 3” in 2014: He shouldn’t run. He can still walk, fight, shoot, drive, and growl his lines like the second coming of Clint Eastwood—that still looks and sounds great. However…

The War with Grandpa

If only all wars were as fun and conducted with as much love as “The War with Grandpa.” How great would it be if pranks were used as weapons instead of guns? Or if those fighting the war made sure there was no collateral damage?

Tenet

I spent two and a half hours of my life watching “Tenet.” From this time, I can say that the performances are excellent, the visuals are jaw-dropping, and the action scenes are bold, creative, and suspenseful.

Possessor

Have you ever had an awesome secret that you wish you could share with the world, but know you can’t? It’s like that being a movie critic sometimes. We see a lot of mediocrity and outright garbage, to be sure, but…

The Irishman

It’s my general policy when reviewing movies to focus solely on the movie itself and ignore external factors. However, given the controversy regarding the credibility of Frank Sheeran, played by Robert De Niro in “The Irishman,” I find it hard to disregard the question…

Unhinged

The city that serves as the backdrop for “Unhinged” is one populated by extensive freeway congestion, aggressively hostile drivers, and an infrastructure that’s described as a confusing mass of spaghetti noodles.

Bill & Ted Face the Music

“Bill & Ted Face the Music” does what the last movie in any good trilogy does: It refers back to the previous movies, comes full circle, and ties up loose story points.

Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: Roman Holiday

Sometimes cliches are cliches for a reason, and oftentimes it’s because there is at least some bit of truth to them. I’ll dust off this old chestnut for “Roman Holiday”: They don’t make them like they used to.

Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: Marriage Story

Charlie and Nicole Barber (Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson) are a couple going through a separation. It’s made clear in the beginning that they were once very happy. The reasons pulling them apart are not revealed immediately…What is clear is that once lawyers get involved in their break-up, the couple goes from amicable to acrimonious very quickly.

Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: The Lady Eve

Barbara Stanwyck is a charmer. With her petite frame and inviting smile, she has a sweet, endearing, approachable, girl next door quality that makes her extremely likeable—even if the character she is playing is a swindler, like in 1941’s “The Lady Eve.”

Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: Murder By Decree

There’s a banter between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson that, when done properly, is musical. The contrast between the flabbergasted Watson, played in 1979’s “Murder by Decree” by James Mason, and the exuberant Sherlock Holmes (Christopher Plummer), creates a rhythm.

Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: Brian's Song

Say the numbers “40” and “41” to a Chicago Bears fan and it’s an almost sure bet they’ll know who you mean. For the rest of us, these numbers belong to Gale Sayers and Brian Piccolo, two running backs for the Bears who both came to the team in 1965.

Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: The Invisible Man

It’s been standard for a while for modestly budgeted motion pictures to use Toronto, Ontario, as a stand in for New York. The city structure, climate, and architecture are close enough to make it believable. As of “The Invisible Man,” we can add another replacement city to the list.
