THE GREAT ESCAPE: CRITERION COLLECTION [BLU-RAY] (1963): "A very entertaining movie, The Great Escape doesnít come without flaws, but its problems seem greatly outweighed by its positives. The film tells an intriguing story in a lively and involving manner." Starring Steve McQueen, James Garner. Criterion, $39.95, 5/12/2020.
THE HUNGER GAMES [BLU-RAY] (2012): "Back in 2012, The Hunger Games became a massive hit, one that launched Jennifer Lawrence toward super-stardom. I canít say the movie impresses greatly, but it provides a fairly engaging action-adventure." Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Donald Sutherland. Lionsgate, $14.99, 8/18/2012.
CREEPSHOW: SEASON ONE [BLU-RAY] (2019): "Like most anthologies, Season One of Creepshow lacks consistency. Nonetheless, it brings a generally good array of horror stories and becomes mostly engaging." Starring Giancarlo Esposito, Adrienne Barbeau. RLJ Entertainment, $34.98, 6/2/2020.
APOCALYPSE NOW [4K UHD] (1979): "Without question, I recommend Apocalypse Now to all movie fans. Despite my continued disdain for the third act, it deserves its status as a classic." Starring Marlon Brando, Martin Sheen. Lionsgate, $19.99, 8/27/2019.
WATCHMEN: THE LIMITED SERIES [BLU-RAY] (2019): "As an expansion of the original graphic novel, the Limited Series of Watchmen offers a satisfying effort. It mixes old and new in a compelling way to turn into top-notch entertainment." Starring Regina King, Jeremy Irons. Warner, $44.98, 6/2/2020.
MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM [BLU-RAY] (1933): "A quality horror tale, Mystery of the Wax Museum holds up after almost 90 years. Creepy and effective, the movie gives us an efficient take on its subject matter." Starring Lionel Atwill, Fay Wray. Warner, $21.99, 5/12/2020.
HOUSE OF WAX [BLU-RAY/BLU-RAY 3D] (1953): "After 67 years, House of Wax receives attention as a classic of sorts, but I admit I donít get its appeal. I think the film drags and offers little in the way of drama or entertainment value." Starring Vincent Price, Phyllis Kirk. Warner Home Video, $35.99, 10/1/13.
