TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION [3D BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Going into the fourth film in the franchise, fans know what to expect from Transformers: Age of Extinction. Even with new protagonists, the movie follows the formula established in the first three flicks, and that means we get another sporadically exciting but often tedious experience." Starring Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammer. Paramount, $49.99, 9/30/2014."
QUEEN: LIVE AT THE RAINBOW 1974 [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Not quite yet superstars, Live at the Rainbow 1974 finds Queen on top of their game. Packed with tunes from the bandís first three albums, the concert offers a good luck at what made the band legendary." Starring Queen. Eagle Rock Entertainment, $19.98, 9/9/2014.
THIRD PERSON [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Though erratic, Third Person becomes fairly memorable by its finish. A lot of that stems from an emotional ending, as the prior two acts seem less satisfying. Still, the movie comed with more good than bad." Starring Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis. Sony, $35.99, 9/30/2014.
ERASER [BLU-RAY]: (1996) "Eraser stands as a perfectly mediocre mid-1990s action film. While it boasts occasional thrills, it seems too generic to be more than average." Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Vanessa Williams. Warner, $14.98, 9/2/2008.
THE EQUALIZER: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION: (1985-1989) "Viewed nearly 30 years after its debut, The Equalizer offers a spotty TV series. Overall it comes with plenty of merits but it lacks much consistency." Starring Edward Woodward, Keith Szarabajka. Visual Entertainment, $124.99, 9/9/2014.
THE GREAT RACE [BLU-RAY]: (1965) "While not a bad comedy, The Great Race suffers from an excessive running time. It lasts far too long, which wears weak jokes even thinner. The cast makes it sporadically amusing, but overall it lacks much humor." Starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon. Warner Archives, $21.99, 9/9/14.
NEIGHBORS [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "With a good cast and a fun premise, Neighbors boasts solid comedic potential. Unfortunately, it wastes our time with ridiculous situations and poor jokes." Starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron. Universal, $34.98, 9/23/2014.
