DRAGONSLAYER [4K UHD] (1981): "Dragonslayer seems lithe and creative, and it provides a good take on the fantasy genre. It takes itself just seriously enough but manages to provide some lightness to keep the flick from dragging." Starring Peter MacNicol, Ralph Richardson. Paramount, $25.99, 3/21/2023.
FLAMINGO ROAD [BLU-RAY] (1949): "A mix of romance, melodrama and thriller, Flamingo Road sporadically kicks to life, mainly when it features the ever-compelling Sydney Greenstreet. However, the end result sputters too often and feels less coherent than it needs to be." Starring Joan Crawford, Zachary Scott. Warner, $21.99, 3/14/2023.
HEART OF DRAGON [BLU-RAY] (1985): "Via Heart of Dragon, we get a side of Jackie Chan different from his standard MO. While I respect the ways the film attempts to go down unusual paths, it cannot quite get where it needs to go, so the end result feels a bit half-hearted." Starring Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung. Arrow, $39.95, 4/11/2023.
HIGHLANDER: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION [BLU-RAY] (1986): "Highlander offers a fairly entertaining film. While not a classic, it certainly shows a lot of flair and creativity, and it works well as a whole." Starring Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery. Lionsgate, $14.99, 9/27/2016.
M3GAN [BLU-RAY] (2023): "A decent box office hit, M3GAN manages its own spin on a particular horror genre. While it never quite excels, the movie becomes a generally entertaining thriller." Starring Allison Williams, Violet McGraw. Universal, $24.98, 3/21/2023.
NEPTUNE'S DAUGHTER [BLU-RAY] (1949): "A light mix of comedy, romance and music, Neptunes Daughter provides a wholly insubstantial affair. While it occasionally entertains, it seems too devoid of impact to really work." Starring Esther Williams, Ricardo Montalban. Warner, $21.99, 3/14/2023.
