BULL DURHAM: CRITERION COLLECTION [BLU-RAY] (1988): "Iíve always really liked Bull Durham as a film, as it uses baseball as a believable backdrop for romantic comedy. Truly, this is the rare film of that genre that will appeal to male and female audiences." Starring Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon. Criterion, $39.95, 7/10/2018.
BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE: CRITERION COLLECTION [BLU-RAY] (2002): "Michael Mooreís Bowling for Columbine won him an Oscar, but I canít figure out why. The movie exists as a platform for Moore to advance an agenda, even if he canít quite figure out what that agenda should be." Starring Michael Moore. Criterion, $39.95, 6/19/2018.
ISLE OF DOGS [BLU-RAY] (2018): "In his return to animation, Wes Anderson creates a decent fable via Isle of Dogs. I think it lacks the necessary heart to become enchanting, but it looks great and comes with such a strong cast that it generally satisfies." Starring Bill Murray, Edward Norton. Fox, $34.99, 7/17/2018.
GODMONSTER OF INDIAN FLATS [BLU-RAY] (1973): "One of the odder monster movies Iíve seen, Godmonster of Indian Flats remains watchable due to its basic weirdness. A mess of plot points in search of an overall narrative, it doesnít really work, but it becomes strangely compelling." Starring Christopher Brooks, Stuart Lancaster. AGFA, $29.95, 7/10/2018.
OVERBOARD [BLU-RAY] (2018): "A remake of a decades-old Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell flick, 2018ís Overboard lacks much merit. Despite some decent talent in its cast, the movie seems too long, too predictable and too mediocre." Starring Anna Faris, Eugenio Derbez. Lionsgate, $39.99, 7/31/2018.
DESIGNING WOMAN [BLU-RAY] (1957): "Nothing about Designing Woman stands out as truly great, but the movie largely works. It features a strong cast and becomes a pretty enjoyable romantic comedy." Starring Lauren Bacall, Gregory Peck. Warner, $21.99, 6/12/2018.
