THE CHOICE [BLU-RAY] (2016): "As far as Nicholas Sparks movies go, The Choice seems a little less maudlin than most – for a while, at least. Eventually the film succumbs to Sparks’ natural tendencies, and that means an absurd third act." Starring Benjamin Walker, Teresa Palmer. Lionsgate, $39.99, 5/3/2016.
THE BOURNE SUPREMACY [BLU-RAY] (2004): "As a film, The Bourne Supremacy is a superb thriller, even if it’s a shade shy of living up to its predecessor. The film injects the espionage thriller genre with a fresh, original concept." Starring Matt Damon, Franka Potente. Universal, $19.98, 6/4/2013.
SCREAM: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (2015): "Of course, Scream the TV series lacks the originality and creativity of the 1996 movie, but it still does very well for itself. Season One delivers an involving horror tale that keeps us interested and involved at all times." Starring Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus. Anchor Bay, $34.98, 5/10/2016.
THE LADY IN THE CAR WITH GLASSES AND A GUN [BLU-RAY] (2015): "When the most interesting aspect of a film stems from its title, that’s a problem. Unfortunately, The Lady In the Car With Glasses and a Gun expends its creativity on unusual moniker and leaves little for the actual film." Starring Freda Mavor, Benjamin Biolay. Magnolia, $29.97, 4/12/2016.
REGRESSION [BLU-RAY] (2016): "One might expect suspense and drama from a movie about Satanists and/or a cop’s mental deterioration, but Regression fails to deliver the goods. Despite its attempts at darkness and psychological depth, the film remains dull and insubstantial." Starring Ethan Hawke, Emma Watson. Anchor Bay, $26.99, 5/10/2016.
GONE BABY GONE [BLU-RAY] (2007): "Slam him as an actor if you’d like, but Ben Affleck shows real talent as a filmmaker. Gone Baby Gone occasionally slips, but it usually provides a rich, involving tale that doesn’t tell the audience what to think." Starring Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan. Miramax, $14.99, 2/12/2008.
