“The Thomas Crown Affair”

Home Entertainment Guide: February 2024 | TV/Streaming

Movies don’t get cooler than “The Thomas Crown Affair,” one of the best films of Norman Jewison’s remarkable career, and one of the suavest films of the 1960s. Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway were at the height of their screen power when they co-starred in this massive heist film, a movie that rewrote the cinematic language for the genre. Kino Lorber has restored the classic film in 4K, accompanying it with great archival features that include on-set footage and a commentary track from Jewison. If that’s not enough, they also have a new interview with the director, now one of his last given he passsed in January 2024. Watch this one in his honor.

“Trolls: Band Together”

It’s funny what a difference a few years and being able to leave the house can make. When my family and I watched the second “Trolls” movie at the start of the pandemic in 2020, it seemed like a fun diversion from the pain of the real world. Four years later, the third film in this series feels like overkill. Of course, it doesn’t help that the script here is significantly worse, pushing a boy band narrative into this world largely just to maximize the casting of Justin Timberlake, who also sounds a bit tired of doing this schtick. Having said that, the Universal Blu-ray release is typically LOADED with special features, including a sing-along version for those who still enjoy visiting this world more than I do.
