THE BOSS BABY: FAMILY BUSINESS [BLU-RAY] (2021): "Because the first film seemed mediocre, I didn't expect much from The Boss Baby: Family Business. Even so, this incoherent mess comes as a disappointment." Starring Alec Baldwin, James Marsden. Universal, $34.98, 9/14/2021.
BREAKDOWN (PARAMOUNT PRESENTS EDITION) [BLU-RAY] (1997): "As far as thrillers go, Breakdown feels middle of the pack. While it provides a pretty good genre entry, it never threatens to become truly memorable." Starring Kurt Russell, Kathleen Quinlan. Paramount, $24.98, 9/21/2021.
STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN (2021 REMASTER) [BLU-RAY] (1982): "Arguably the best film in the series, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan continues to work nearly years after its theatrical release. The movie combines action, intelligence and drama into one compelling package that make it a winner." Starring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy. Paramount, $17.98, 9/7/2021.
U-571 [BLU-RAY] (2000): "Although U-571 doesn't become a terribly memorable film, it still provides enough thrills and excitement to make it worthwhile. The story never rises above hoary war flick clichés and the action isn't presented with much
flair, but the overall package seems just interesting enough to stimulate my attention." Starring Matthew McConaughey, Bill Paxton. Universal, $14.98, 8/26/2008.
LEGEND: LIMITED EDITION [BLU-RAY] (1985): "Make no mistake: Legend is a terrible flick. It shows good visual imagination but wastes those efforts on a bland story that seems poorly executed." Starring Tom Cruise, Mia Sara. Arrow, $49.95, 9/28/2021.
THE KID DETECTIVE (2020): "Based on the title, one might expect The Kid Detective to offer a tale for pre-teens. Instead, it becomes a deft mix of comedy and drama that offers a compelling look at how youthful expectations become adult disappointments." Starring Adam Brody, Sophie Nélisse. Sony, $19.99, 1/19/2021.
F9: THE FAST SAGA [4K UHD] (2021): "20 years into the franchise and F9: The Fast Saga runs on fumes. With a muddled, confused plot, it relies on absurd action to entertain, but it becomes too idiotic and ridiculous to succeed." Starring Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez. Universal, $49.98, 9/21/2021.
DEMENTIA 13 [BLU-RAY] (1963): "One of Francis Ford Coppola’s earliest films, Dementia 13 deserves attention as a historical curiosity. However, it doesn’t actually work as a movie, for it seems silly and without suspense." Starring William Campbell, Luana Anders. Lionsgate, $17.99, 9/21/2021.
