BOYZ N THE HOOD
John Singleton's explosive 1991 look at the mean streets of South Central L.A. gangland life may be dated, but stands as time capsule of early-1990s culture. Ice Cube, Cuba Gooding Jr., Morris Chestnut and Larry Fishburne make up a powerhouse cast that delivers the melodrama with confidence. The film makes its 4K debut. Extras include a 1991 Singleton press conference and a background featurette.
Ewan McGregor plays a grown-up version of the little boy in "The Shining" in this sequel to the seminal horror film. The follow-up stands up well on its own, with McGregor delivering a haunting performance as a man tortured by his psychic abilities. Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson, Carl Lumbly and Jocelin Donahue make up a strong suppoprting cast in the atmospheric effort. For my full review, click here. Extras include a making-of featurette and a look back at the original film.
