Bulletin - Week of 10/26 - 11/1

It's that time of year again - the season where we remind you about our special Holiday page. If you want something to watch for Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas, we have you covered - heck, we even have some Hanukkah and New Year's programs, too! Give the page a look for viewing suggestions.

PLANES: FIRE AND RESCUE [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Like its predecessor, Planes: Fire and Rescue seems watchable but forgettable. The sequel comes across more like a platform for toy sales than anything else, so whatever entertainment it produces seems semi-incidental." Starring Dane Cook, Ed Harris. Disney, $39.99, 11/11/2014.

PEARL HARBOR [BLU-RAY]: (2001) "As a movie, Pearl Harbor seems more enjoyable than its detractors claim, but I won’t claim much more for it than that. The battle sequences are fairly compelling and dramatic, but the romantic elements seem uninspired and forced." Starring Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett. Touchstone, $26.50, 12/19/2006.

MONTY PYTHON LIVE (MOSTLY): ONE DOWN, FIVE TO GO [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "In their prime, Monty Python produced excellent comedy. With Live – One Down, Five to Go, we get a live concert that seems amusing but somewhat pointless, as we can see the material performed better in its original format." Starring Monty Python. Eagle Rock Entertainment, $24.98, 11/11/2014.

MULAN II [BLU-RAY]: (2005) "Will fans of the original movie find a comparably strong experience with Mulan II? No, but it stands as one of the better Disney direct-to-video sequels. Granted, it doesn’t have much competition, since most of its siblings stink. Nonetheless, I think it works pretty well and offers a mostly enjoyable way to pass the time." Starring Ming-Na. BD Wong. Disney, $39.99, 3/12/2013.

MALEFICENT [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Although not a great film, Maleficent becomes the best of the modern “reworked fairy tales”, largely due to its star. Angelina Jolie carries the film on her back and helps redeem many of its flaws." Starring Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning. Disney, $36.99, 11/11/2014.

M*A*S*H [BLU-RAY]: (1970) "Since I grew up on the TV version of M*A*S*H, I expected the movie would seem wrong to me. Instead, I thought it came across as more appropriate than the show, especially due to the performances; most of the actors seemed to better inhabit the characters than did their TV counterparts. The film edition of M*A*S*H appeared less coherent but more compelling and inventive." Starring Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould. Fox, $19.99, 9/1/2009.

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG (EXTENDED EDITION) [BLU-RAY]: (2013) "As the second chapter in a trilogy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug does fairly well for itself. Though the tale can drag and feel padded at times, it still packs enough adventure and drama to make it an enjoyable experience." Starring Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman. New Line, $35.99, 11/4/2014.
