WESTWARD THE WOMEN [BLU-RAY] (1951): "Much of Westward the Women follows standard Western tropes. However, its unusual focus on female characters gives it a bit extra charge and offers a twist." Starring Robert Taylor, Denise Darcel. Warner, $21.99, 9/26/2023.
WHAT JUST HAPPENED [BLU-RAY] (2008): "Barry Levinson attempts to bite the hand that feeds him via the Hollywood satire What Happened Here. Unfortunately, the film indulges in the usual concepts so it fails to find a clever or interesting path." Starring Robert De Niro, Kristen Stewart. Magnolia, $16.99, 2/24/2009.
RUBY GILLMAN TEENAGE KRAKEN [BLU-RAY] (2023): "A box office flop, I cannot claim Ruby Gillman Teenage Kraken offers an ignored cinematic classic. Nonetheless, it gives us a fairly charming and entertaining effort that deserved a better fate." Starring Lana Condor, Jane Fonda. Universal, $24.98, 9/26/2023.
PENNYWORTH: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON [BLU-RAY] (2020-21): "Though not quite as entertaining as its initial year, Season Two of Pennyworth still works fairly well. Despite minor stumbles, we get a good collection of shows." Starring Jack Bannon, Ben Aldridge. Warner, $29.99. 7/13/2022.
HALLOWEEN H20 [4K UHD] (1998): "With Jamie Lee Curtis back in tow for the first time in 17 years, Halloween H20 boasted some dramatic potential. Unfortunately, it became just another tired slasher movie with no new tricks up its sleeve." Starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Josh Hartnett. Paramount, $30.99, 9/26/2023.
BERRY GORDY'S THE LAST DRAGON [BLU-RAY] (1985): "Campy, disjointed and nearly devoid of entertainment value, The Last Dragon flops. Nothing about it connects, so it turns into a messy and cheesy affair." Starring Taimak, Vanity. Sony, $19.99, 8/25/2015.
