GOTHAM: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON [BLU-RAY] (2017-18): "Still my favorite DC TV series, Gotham continues to cruise along with Season Four. We get a largely solid collection of shows that builds toward a great climax." Starring Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue. Warner, $49.99, 8/21/2018.
THE JUNGLE BOOK [BLU-RAY] (2016): "Essentially a remake of the 1967 animated version, 2016’s The Jungle Book delivers a moderately entertaining experience. However, it doesn’t make its own name for itself, as it copies the prior Disney flick too much." Starring Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley. Disney, $12.99, 8/30/2016.
NATIONAL LAMPOON'S VAN WILDER [4K UHD] (2002): "Inane, idiotic, infantile, imbecilic – all these terms accurately describe National Lampoon’s Van Wilder, and they don’t even require me to leave the “I” section of the dictionary. Though not a great presentation, the 4K UHD offers a substantial step up over the awful Blu-ray." Starring Ryan Reynolds, Tara Reid. Lionsgate, $22.99, 8/14/2018.
LONE SURVIVOR [4K UHD] (2014): "While Lone Survivor doesn’t offer anything novel or especially creative, it boasts the brutal battle experience it needs to succeed. The 4K UHD brings obvious upgrades in terms of picture and audio." Starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch. Universal, $19.98, 8/9/2016.
FIRST REFORMED [BLU-RAY] (2018): "An unusual look at a spiritual journey, First Reformed can be a bit hit or miss in the way it explores its themes. A strong lead performance from Ethan Hawke helps keep it together, though." Starring Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried. Lionsgate, $21.99, 8/21/2018.
MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN [BLU-RAY] (2014): "With a broad comedic palette on which to paint, Mr. Peabody and Sherman manages occasional mirth. However, it fails to live up to its potential and seems less engaging than I’d like." Starring Ty Burrell, Max Charles. Fox, $19.98, 10/14/2014.
