HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD [BLU-RAY] (2019): "After nearly a decade, the How to Train Your Dragon trilogy wraps up via The Hidden World. If this truly acts as the end of the road for Hiccup, Toothless and company, it feels like a disappointment, as the movie lacks much real spark or emotional impact." Starring Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera. Universal, $34.98, 5/21/2019.
INDEPENDENCE DAY [4K UHD] (1996): "Take fun and exciting movies like this for what they are and save the brainpower for your next perusal of Dostoyevsky. The 4K UHD offers both visual and auditory improvements compared to the Blu-ray." Starring Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum. Fox, $14.99, 6/13/2017.
ISN'T IT ROMANTIC [BLU-RAY] (2019): "As a genre parody, Isnít It Romantic shows promise Ė for about its first five minutes. After that, it soon embraces that what it claims to mock and becomes an idiotic, irritating waste of space." Starring Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth. Warner, $35.99, 5/21/2019.
THE GOOD DINOSAUR [BLU-RAY 3D] (2015): "Bland and forgettable, The Good Dinosaur offers one of Pixarís weakest efforts. At least the immersive 3D visuals add some spark to the proceedings." Starring Jeffrey Wright, Frances McDormand. Disney, $39.99, 2/22/2016.
THE POLICE: EVERYONE STARES - THE POLICE INSIDE OUT [BLU-RAY] (2006): "I canít call Everyone Stares an especially tight little documentary, but I think it satisfies nonetheless. As a Police fan, itís simply really cool to see the bandís development from the inside via all the home movie footage." Starring The Police. Eagle Rock, $15.98, 5/31/2019.
COLD PURSUIT [4K UHD] (2019): "While Cold Pursuit looks like just another one-dimensional Liam Neeson revenge tale, it offers something deeper and more varied than that. The 4K UHD brings decent visual improvements over the Blu-ray." Starring Liam Neeson, Laura Dern. Lionsgate, $42.99, 5/14/2019.
