Two weeks into December, Christmas heads our way in a hurry. Get thee to the Holiday Page soon!
THE EQUALIZER 2 [BLU-RAY] (2018): "A solid sequel, The Equalizer 2 improves on the first film. More emotional and compelling, this becomes an involving action experience." Starring Denzel Washington, Melissa Leo. Sony, $34.99, 12/11/2018.
PEPPERMINT [BLU-RAY] (2018): "With a female lead, Peppermint comes with a twist on the usual “violent vigilante” genre. Unfortunately, it offers no other creative choices and becomes a tiresome, predictable drag." Starring Jennifer Garner, John Ortiz. Universal, $34.98, 12/11/2018.
THE SUPER [BLU-RAY] (2018): "A heavy-handed and trite stab at a thriller, The Super lacks any positives. It works overtime to scare the viewer but fails miserably." Starring Paul John Flueger, Val Kilmer. Lionsgate, $21.99, 12/18/2018.
HIGH VOLTAGE [BLU-RAY] (2018): "An attempt to meld music with horror, High Voltage sounds interesting on the surface. Unfortunately, the final result lacks coherence and turns into an erratic, spotty effort." Starring David Arquette, Luke Wilson. Echo Bridge, $19.99, 11/20/2018.
STARMAN: COLLECTOR'S EDITION [BLU-RAY] (1084): "Would we view Starman differently if ET never existed? I’m sure we would, but I’m not as sure that’d make it a more appealing movie, as Starman delivers reasonable emotion and entertainment but it lacks the spark that would make it truly memorable." Starring Jeff Bridges, Karen Allen. Shout, $34.93, 12/18/2018.
THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME [BLU-RAY] (2018): "A comedic disappointment, The Spy Who Dumped Me musters a handful of laughs. However, these don’t seem like enough to compensate for the prevalence of witless scenes and a general absence of inspiration." Starring Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon. Lionsgate, $19.99, 10/30/2018.
