THE SPONGEBOB MOVIE: SPONGE OUT OF WATER [BLU-RAY]: (2015) "Though it sputters a bit as it progresses, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water still works most of the time. The flick throws out lots of laughs and it seems like good entertainment for adults and kids." Starring Antonio Banderas, Tom Kenny. Paramount, $52.99, 6/2/2015.
THE SEARCHERS [BLU-RAY]: (1956) "My opinion falls in the minority, but I just donít feel impressed with The Searchers. When I first watched the film and offered that impression, I got e-mails that told me to view it again. Iíve now seen The Searchers four times and nothingís changed my opinion." Starring John Wayne, Natalie Wood. Warner, $14.98, 10/31/2006.
JUPITER ASCENDING [BLU-RAY 3D]: (2015) "With Jupiter Ascending, the Wachowskis reach their low point. The movie suffers from recycled ideas, dull characters and lackluster action, none of which threaten to engage or entertain the viewer." Starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum. Warner, $44.95, 6/2/2015.
GHOST RIDER [BLU-RAY]: (2007) "While Ghost Rider boasts a good cast and some solid visual effects, it skimps on story and character elements. Those flaws leave it as something decidedly ordinary and forgettable," Starring Nicolas Cage, Eva Mendes. Sony, $19.97, 6/12/2007.
HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 [BLU-RAY]: (2015) "While not as bad as its brutal reviews might indicate, no one will mistake Hot Tub Time Machine 2 for an actual good movie. It produces a handful of laughs but mostly just grinds its gears with an unambitious, uninspiring collection of puerile gags." Starring Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson. Paramount, $39.99, 5/19/2015.
MAGICIAN: THE ASTONISHING LIFE & WORK OF ORSON WELLES [BLU-RAY]: (2015) "With 2015ís Magician: The Astonishing Life & Work of Orson Welles gives us a perfunctory look at its subject. The documentary manages to provide a workable overview but it never becomes as involving as it should." Starring Orson Welles. Cohen Media Group, $34.98, 5/26/2015.
FOCUS [BLU-RAY]: (2015) "At worst, Focus offers a slick, pleasant diversion. At best, Focus offers a slick, pleasant diversion. The movie does enough to keep us entertained but it never quite meshes to the degree Iíd hope." Starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie. Warner, $44.95, 6/2/2015.
