THE FOUNDER [BLU-RAY] (2016): "At times, The Founder provides a compelling vision of how the global behemoth known as McDonald’s came to be. However, the movie lacks great insight, so it offers entertainment without much real substance." Starring Michael Keaton, Laura Dern. Anchor Bay, $39.99, 4/18/2017.
THE GRUDGE [BLU-RAY] (2004): "Though The Grudge aspires to be more than just the usual schlock, it doesn’t usually succeed. The movie is quirkier and more stylish than most, but it relies on too many stock scares and never pays off in a satisfying manner." Starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Bill Pullman. Sony, $9.99, 5/12/2009.
SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER: DIRECTOR'S CUT [BLU-RAY] (1977): "Although Saturday Night Fever probably should come across as frightfully dated, the movie still seems compelling and engaging after 40 years. The new 'Director's Cut' fails to improve the movie and makes only minimal changes to the original." Starring John Travolta, Karen Lynn Gorney. Paramount, $16.99, 5/2/2017.
TANGLED [BLU-RAY 3D] (2010): "As a 'princess fairy tale', Tangled provides reasonable entertainment but it seems rather derivative and lacks a certain quality that would make it special. Though the 3D presentation seems decent, it fails to add much to the presentation." Starring Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi. Disney, $49.99, 3/29/2011.
DIVORCE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON [BLU-RAY] (2016): "A mix of drama and (mostly) comedy, Divorce offers sporadic pleasures. While parts of the series deliver humor and insight, it seems inconsistent and doesn’t hit the mark as often as I’d like." Starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Thomas Haden Church. HBO, $24.98, 5/9/2017.
DESPICABLE ME [BLU-RAY 3D] (2010): "Despicable Me will never be a favorite of mine, but this 3D presentation makes it a lot more fun than in its less interesting 2D version." Starring Steve Carell, Jason Segel. Universal, $29.98, 12/14/2010.
