Hopefully everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving. This sends us rocketing toward the end of 2015, so you only have a few weeks left to absorb our holiday entertainment page! With more titles added all the time, it's the place to go!
ROGER WATERS: THE WALL [BLU-RAY]: (2015) "Part concert film, part personal exploration, Roger Waters: The Wall only sporadically satisfies. The shots from the live shows impress but the documentary segments interfere with the performanceís flow and become a nagging intrusion." Starring Roger Waters. Universal, $22.98, 12/1/2015.
ZOOLANDER [BLU-RAY]: (2001) "While Zoolander has enough entertaining material to warrant a look, it suffers from the blandness of its star. When the lead actor is the worst thing about a movie, that becomes a trap from which it canít escape." Starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson. Paramount, $16.99, 2/2/2016.
FROSTY THE SNOWMAN: ORIGINAL CHRISTMAS CLASSICS ANNIVERSARY COLLECTOR'S EDITION [BLU-RAY]: (1969) "Frosty the Snowman endures as one of the more popular Christmas specials, but itís not one of the best. It moves briskly and has some good moments. However, it suffers from a number of flaws that make it only moderately above average." Starring Jimmy Durante. Classic Media, $29.93, 9/8/2015.
ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES [BLU-RAY]: (1971) "While not my idea of a classic, Escape from the Planet of the Apes does manage to redeem the series after the dismal Beneath the Planet of the Apes. The movie has odd stretches of logic and drags as it progresses, but it does enough right to remain entertaining." Starring Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter. Fox, $16.99, 11/4/2008.
MINIONS [BLU-RAY 3D]: (2015) "As a spinoff, Minions provides occasional entertainment, but it lacks the substance necessary to carry a full movie. The lead characters just seem too one-dimensional to maintain interest across as entire feature." Starring Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock. Universal, $49.98, 12/8/2015.
THE END OF THE TOUR [BLU-RAY]: (2015) "Parts of The End of the Tour work reasonably well, but too much of the movie seems vague and sluggish. Although it wants to be deep and insightful, instead it just comes across as lackluster." Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Jason Segel. Lionsgate, $24.99, 11/3/2015.
