THE LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE [BLU-RAY] (2017): "Fans of prior Lego flicks will know what to get from The Lego Ninjago Movie. While it works a bit better than its predecessors and offers reasonable entertainment, it can still feel like déjà vu." Starring Dave Franco, Justin Theroux. Warner, $24.99, 12/26/2017.
THE LION GUARD: THE RISE OF SCAR (2018): "As someone who enjoyed the original Lion King, I hoped The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar would deliver a fun adventure. Unfortunately, it seems uninspired and not especially entertaining." Starring David Oyelowo, Gabrielle Union. Disney, $19.98, 1/9/2018.
JIGSAW [BLU-RAY] (2017): "As the eighth film in the Saw series, Jigsaw runs on fumes. Heavy on mindless gore and light on actual scares or memorable material, the movie feels like nothing more than repetitive cinematic product." Starring Matt Passmore, Callum Keith Rennie. Lionsgate, $39.99, 1/23/2018.
IT [4K UHD] (2017): "A major success, I admit I can’t figure out why It resonated with audiences. At least the 4K UHD offers excellent visuals that top the already-solid Blu-ray." Starring Bill Skarsgård, Jaeden Lieberher. Warner, $44.99, 1/9/2018.
MARSHALL [BLU-RAY] (2017): "An enjoyable but traditional court-based drama, Marshall offers a decent snapshot of a pioneering figure. Though it keeps us consistently engaging, it fails to become anything creative or new." Starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad. Universal, $34.99, 1/9/2018.
HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS - PART 1 [4K UHD] (2010): "Not only does Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 set up the series’ finale, but also it stands on its own as arguably the best film of the seven to date. It provides a grim experience that proves to be tight and often moving." Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson. Warner, $41.99, 3/28/2017
