BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA [BLU-RAY 4K]: (1992) "Busy and over the top, Bram Stoker’s Dracula provides an unsatisfying retelling of the vampire legend. It musters a few intriguing moments but proves so goofy and overdramatic that it doesn’t work." Starring Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder. Sony, $19.99, 10/6/2015.
THE GODFATHER: THE COPPOLA RESTORATION - BONUS MATERIAL [BLU-RAY]: (2008) "While the original 2001 Godfather boxed set faltered due to problematic visuals and audio for the three movies, 2008’s “The Godfather: The Coppola Restoration” finally corrects these issues. Picture and sound for the different films seemed generally solid, and the extras included in the package helped make this a special set." Starring Al Pacino, Marlon Brando. Paramount, $62.99, 9/23/2008.
SPY: (2015) "A good mix of action and comedy, Spy gives Melissa McCarthy a fine showcase for her talents. Though the film runs too long, it still offers solid entertainment." Starring Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne. Fox, $39.99, 9/29/2015.
THE LEFTOVERS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "With Season One of The Leftovers, we get a frustrating series. While the show demonstrates positive elements and occasionally comes to life, it can also be maddeningly slow and vague." Starring Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman. Warner, $44.95, 10/6/2015.
SAN ANDREAS [BLU-RAY 3D]: (2015) "No one will mistake San Andreas for a great film, as it lacks substance and delivers painfully cheesy moments at times. Still, it packs a lot of action and excitement into its 114 minutes, so it gives us a fun, brainless disaster-based thrill ride." Starring Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino. Warner, $44.95, 10/13/2015.
POLTERGEIST [BLU-RAY]: (2015) "It’s always dangerous to remake a good movie, so the 2015 Poltergeist started at a deficit. Viewed independently, the update doesn’t flop, but it lacks much personality, character or reason to exist." Starring Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt. Fox, $39.99, 9/29/2015.
