PACIFIC RIM UPRISING [4K UHD] (2018): "A largely listless, semi-coherent sequel, Pacific Rim Uprising fails to live up to the modest standards set by its spotty predecessor. The 4K UHD offered excellent visuals that became an obvious step up from the Blu-ray." Starring John Boyega, Scott Eastwood. Universal, $37.98, 6/19/2018.
ABOMINABLE [BLU-RAY] (2006): "Cheap, cheesy and wholly devoid of entertainment value, Abominable lacks any merit. It gives “B”-movies a bad name." Starring Matt McCoy, Haley Joel. Arrow, $34.95, 6/12/2018.
TOMB RAIDER [4K UHD] (2018): "A reboot of a moderately successful franchise, 2018’s Tomb Raider never turns into an especially engaging adventure. The 4K UHD boasts excellent visuals that top the already-appealing Blu-ray." Starring Alicia Vikander, Dominic West. Warner, $44.99, 6/12/2018.
SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPES [BLU-RAY] (1989): "Steven Soderbergh’s directorial debut, 1989’s Sex, Lies and Videotape holds up well after almost 30 years. Deep, involving and self-assured, the movie gives us a strong character drama." Starring Andie MacDowell, James Spader. Sony, $14.98, 11/17/2009.
DEATH WISH [BLU-RAY] (2018): " A feverish fantasy for the Trump era, 2018’s Death Wish lacks substance. Neither crazed enough to entertain as a manic grindhouse effort nor deep enough to become a solid psychological thriller, the end result fails to satisfy." Starring Bruce Willis, Elisabeth Shue. Fox, $34.99, 6/5/2018.
THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN [BLU-RAY 3D] (2011): "While I expected The Adventures of Tintin to be a bit of a dud, I found a pretty good movie. The 3D version delivers a lot of fun use of the format." Starring Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis. Paramount, $34.99, 3/13/2012.
