It's that time of year again - the season where we remind you about our special Holiday page. If you want something to watch for Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas, we have you covered - heck, we even have some Hanukkah and New Year's programs, too! Give the page a look for viewing suggestions.
YANKEE DOODLE DANDY [BLU-RAY]: (1942) "On paper, Yankee Doodle Dandy sounded like it might offer a maudlin and sappy piece of nostalgia. In reality, however, the movie proved quite winning, as it gave us a peppy and amusing take on the life of a famous composer." Starring James Cagney. Warner Archives, $21.99, 10/14/2014.
SEX TAPE [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "With a lot of good talent involved and a fun premise, Sex Tape should provide a witty romp. Instead, it gives us a tepid, tedious attempt at comedy with little to no amusement as a result." Starring Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel. Sony, $35.99, 10/21/2014.
SANTA'S MAGIC TOY BAG: (1983) "If you saw Santaís Magic Toy Bag as a kid, you might be tempted to revisit it. Donít tamper with fond memories, for as an adult, youíll likely recognize what a dull, derivative snoozer it actually is." Starring Paul Fusco, Rich Schellbach. Legend, $14.98, 10/21/2014.
50 FIRST DATES [BLU-RAY]: (2004) "A surprisingly sweet and charming piece, 50 First Dates falters at times, but remains mostly solid. The film melds a few genres fairly smoothly and seems amusing and likable." Starring Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore. Columbia TriStar, $19.99, 6/20/2006.
DOLLS [BLU-RAY]: (1987) "While not particularly original, Dolls offers an entertaining piece of work. Its giddy twist on fairy tales and horror turns it into a lively, brisk tale." Starring Ian Patrick Williams, Carolyn Purdy-Gordon. Shout! Factory, $29.93, 11/11/2014.
WEDDING SINGER, THE [BLU-RAY]: (1998) "A highly entertaining romantic comedy, The Wedding Singer overcomes its predictable story. Charming lead performances help make this happen and turn it into a sweet and endearing film." Starring Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore. New Line, $14.98, 1/25/2011.
DELIVER US FROM EVIL [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Given the mediocre quality of modern horror, I didnít expect greatness from Deliver Us From Evil - and I didnít find greatness. That said, the movie brings us a pretty good take on the exorcism genre and does more right than wrong." Starring Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez. Sony, $40.99, 10/28/2014.
