Bulletin: Week of 9/15 - 9/21

SHAFT [BLU-RAY] (2019): "With the 2019 reboot, Shaft offers a throwback, but not in a good way. The movie embraces cheap, crude traits and becomes an unpleasant experience." Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie T. Usher. Warner, $35.99, 9/24/2019.

SCREAM 4 [BLU-RAY] (2011): "For reasons probably due more to flagging careers than to creative inspiration, a successful horror franchise comes back to life with Scream 4. The film won’t inspire a new run of flicks, though, as it didn’t do much at the box office, and the movie lacks the zing and power to inspire “cult classic” affection." Starring Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox. Lionsgate, $9.98, 10/4/2011.

SECRET WINDOW [BLU-RAY] (2004): "A moderately intriguing thriller, Secret Window suffers from a mix of flaws, but it generally offers some entertainment. There’s nothing here to make it stand out as particularly stellar, though a nice lead performance from Johnny Depp elevates it somewhat." Starring Johnny Depp, John Turturro. Sony, $9.99, 4/24/2007.

SECRETARY [BLU-RAY] (2002): "A quirky and generally compelling film, Secretary provides an unusual but intriguing experience as a whole." Starring James Spader, Maggie Gyllenhaal. Lionsgate, $9.98, 10/5/2010.

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON [BLU-RAY] (2018-19): "With some DC TV series, I find it a slog to get through the seasons at times. This doesn’t become the case with the consistently delightful Legends of Tomorrow, and Season Four continues the winning streak." Starring Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh. Warner, $29.98, 9/24/2019.

JEZEBEL [BLU-RAY] (1938): "Essentially a lower-rent attempt to snag fans of Gone With the Wind, Jezebel boasts a strong lead performance by Bette Davis. Unfortunately, the rest of the production lets her down." Starring Bette Davis, Henry Ford. Warner, $21.99, 8/27/2019.

LEGO BATMAN: FAMILY MATTERS [BLU-RAY] (2019): "Largely devoid of the series’ trademark wit, Lego Batman: Family Matters becomes a stale adventure. It never musters much sense of comedy, excitement or drama." Starring Troy Baker, Steve Blum. Warner, $24.98, 8/20/2019.

LONDON HAS FALLEN [BLU-RAY] (2016): "Even though I hated Olympus Has Fallen, I hoped its sequel would offer something entertaining. Alas, it doesn’t, as London Has Fallen becomes another stale, trite action flick without redeeming value." Starring Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman. Universal, $9.98, 6/14/2016.

YESTERDAY [BLU-RAY] (2019): "Blessed with a delightful concept, Yesterday offers occasional moments of mirth. However, it seems too long and too concerned with a dreary romantic subplot to really work." Starring Himesh Patel, Lily James. Universal, $24.99, 9/24/2019.

WAGON MASTER [BLU-RAY] (1950): "Even with the legendary John Ford at the helm, 1950’s Wagon Master can’t develop into a compelling story. It hits on the usual notes and generally fails to bring anything fresh to the table." Starring Ben Johnson, Joanne Dru. Warner, $21.99, 8/13/2019.

DARK PHOENIX [BLU-RAY] (2019): "Fans who hoped the X-Men First Class series would wrap on a high note will encounter a major letdown via Dark Phoenix. Despite the grand drama of its story, the film seems bland and emotionless." Starring Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy. Fox, $39.99, 9/17/2019.

THE WITCHES [BLU-RAY] (1990): "Taken from Roald Dahl’s text, The Witches becomes a disappointment. The movie lacks the needed sense of spark and cleverness to carry the story." Starring Anjelica Huston, Mai Zetterling. Warner, $21.99, 8/20/2019.
