Yesterday

An adorable Brit-centric rom-com fantasy set in a rock 'n' roll alt-reality where Beatles music lives anew, life goes on, ob-la-di, ob-la-da, and all you need is love, after all.

Neil Pond, Parade Magazine

Yesterday

Danny Boyle's light breeze of a romcom about a world without the Beatles has its heart firmly in the right place. It's the challenge to take it to the next level that's missing.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Yesterday

Give me more about these songs, the effect they have on the world, and why losing them is its own sort of disaster...[don't] preach at me unless it's Sunday morning, because YESTERDAY should've been a Saturday night and a lot more fun when it ended.

My Brilliant Career

This glowing new restoration does justice to Gillian Armstrong's classic, though the disc's rote collection of extras leave something to be desired.

Keith Watson, Slant Magazine

The Border

Kino Lorber offers a beautifully lurid transfer of a greatly underrated Jack Nicholson thriller.

Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine

Krull

Re-watching the movie, however lovely the transfer to Blu-ray may be, reveals a flimsy quest pic, full of wooden acting, laughable effects, and an almost complete lack of drama, both from the absence of peril and from a lack of sympathetic characters.

Alan Boon, Starburst
