Bulletin - Week of 11/23 - 11/29

Don't look now, but Thanksgiving is here - for folks in the United States, at least. Everywhere else calls November 27, 2014 "Thursday". If you want some Turkey Day fun - or you want a head-start on Christmas - jump to our special Holiday page. We even have some Hanukkah and New Year's programs, too!

ROLLING STONES: LA FORUM LIVE IN 1975: (2014) "While not the bandís peak, LA Forum Live in 1975 shows the Rolling Stones in fine form. It gives us a full concert with an interesting setlist and mostly good performances." Starring The Rolling Stones. Eagle Rock Entertainment, $14.98, 11/18/2014.

PERFECT STORM, THE [BLU-RAY]: (2000) "The Perfect Storm takes on an interesting subject but only achieves moderate success in it coverage of that topic. The movie contains some pretty exciting action sequences but is much less compelling when it focuses on its lifelessly presented characters; despite the presence of a solid cast, the participants are less than interesting." Starring George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg. Warner, $14.98, 7/22/2008.

JOEL, BILLY: THE LAST PLAY AT SHEA [BLU-RAY]: (2010) "With The Last Play at Shea, we get a documentary that tries to pack too much into its 95 minutes. As it attempts to detail the separate histories of Billy Joel and Shea Stadium, it proves fairly entertaining but too scattershot and inconsistent to really satisfy." Starring Billy Joel, Paul McCartney. Virgil Films, $19.99, 11/18/2014.

BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID [BLU-RAY]: (1969) "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid isn't a great movie, but I find it to offer a fair amount of fun and entertainment, mainly sparked by the strong chemistry of its stars." Starring Paul Newman, Robert Redford. Fox, $19.98, 5/13/2008.

LORD OF ILLUSIONS [BLU-RAY]: (1995) "With 1995ís Lord of Illusions, we discover a good mix of horror, supernatural elements and film noir. The movie falters occasionally but usually delivers a taut, involving piece of work." Starring Scott Bakula, Famke Janssen. Shout! Factory, $29.93, 12/16/2014.

THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY: (1945) "The Picture of Dorian Gray presents a mixed bag of a movie. On one hand, it boasts a fascinating story and some good supporting performances. On the other, the lead actor seems too bland, and the film tells its tale in a lackluster manner." Starring George Sanders, Hurd Hatfield. Warner, $19.97, 10/7/2008.

THE GIVER [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "After more than 20 years since the novelís publication, The Giver makes it to movie screens Ė and lands with something of a thud. While the film provides occasional glimmers of life, it seems too inconsistent and derivative to become a strong experience." Starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep. Anchor Bay, $39.99, 11/25/2014.
