I AM STEVE MCQUEEN [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "While a few interesting insights emerge during I Am Steve McQueen, not much depth emerges. Too much of the show remains awfully thin and superficial, as it doesn't paint more than a one-dimensional view of its subject." Starring Robert Downey Jr., Steve McQueen. Shout! Factory, $29.93, 4/14/2015.
CARS [BLU-RAY]: (2006) "Pixar continued their incredible winning streak with the delightful Cars. Thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable, this one turns out to be a consistent joy." Starring Owen Wilson, Paul Newman. Disney, $39.99, 4/12/2011.
TOP FIVE [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "While not without funny moments, Top Five plods too much. It comes with flat characters and a general lack of insight as it meanders across its running time." Starring Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson. Paramount, $39.99, 3/17/2015.
TO CATCH A THIEF [BLU-RAY]: (1955) "The duo of Cary Grant and Grace Kelly are as gorgeous as the backdrop of the French Riviera and while To Catch A Thief doesn’t rate as one of Hitchcock’s best efforts, it was an enjoyable romp nonetheless." Starring Cary Grant, Grace Kelly. Paramount, $19.99, 3/6/2012.
BELIEVE ME [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Believe Me wants to provide a biting piece of satire or an affirmation of faith, but it lacks the conviction to go where it needs to go. It seems to worry too much that it’ll offend anyone so it fails to present the needed snap." Starring Alex Russell, Johanna Braddy. Virgil Films, $17.99, 3/3/2015.
BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES [BLU-RAY]: (1970) "After the rich and exciting Planet of the Apes, its first sequel comes as a massive disappointment. It lacks an interesting story, compelling action, or much reason to exist other than as an excuse to make money. I guess it succeeded since they created three more Apes sequels, but I didn’t think much of Beneath." Starring James Franciscus, Charlton Heston. Fox, $25.00, 11/4/2008.
FOXCATCHER [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "An ending with a movie attached, Foxcatcher provides a slow drama. With 134 minutes at its disposal, it should give us a rich character study, but instead it simply meanders and goes nowhere." Starring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell. Sony, $34.99, 3/3/2015.
