ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY [BLU-RAY] (2016): "Back in 2014, director Gareth Edwards made an erratic Godzilla movie. To prove this wasnít a fluke, in 2016, Edwards created an erratic Star Wars movie. Though it comes with some good moments, Rogue One lacks the qualities to match up with the franchiseís better entries." Starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna. Disney, $39.99, 4/4/2017.
DEMON SEED [BLU-RAY] (1977): "Although I give Demon Seed points for technological prescience, the movie itself bores. It wastes a chilling premise to deliver a dull experience." Starring Julie Christie, Fritz Weaver. Warner, $21.99, 3/14/2017.
PATRIOTS DAY [BLU-RAY] (2016): "Involving and dramatic, Patriots Day covers the Boston Marathon bombing well. It brings us thrills along with emotion to become a satisfying exploration of the subject matter." Starring Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman. Lionsgate, $39.99, 3/28/2017.
THE VALLEY OF GWANGI [BLU-RAY] (1969): "Due to the still charming visual effects creations of legendary Ray Harryhausen, The Valley of Gwangi boasts occasional moments of delight. However, the story and characters fail to engage, so the effects canít expect to redeem the project." Starring James Franciscus, Gila Golan. Warner, $21.99, 3/14/2017.
COLLATERAL BEAUTY [BLU-RAY] (2016): "Despite a moderately promising premise, Collateral Beauty fails to engage. The story forces whimsy on us and its inconsistent tone becomes an issue." Starring Will Smith, Helen Mirren. Warner, $29.98, 3/14/2017.
ARSENAL [BLU-RAY] (2017): "Slow-moving and directionless, Arsenal never builds a head of steam. Saddled with bad acting and poor stabs at action, the movie goes nowhere." Starring Nicolas Cage, Adrian Grenier. Lionsgate, $24.99, 3/28/2017.
