COCO [BLU-RAY] (2017): "One of the lesser Pixar films, Coco boasts excellent production values but its story feels rehashed. The movie reminds me of too many other flicks and never becomes especially involving or memorable." Starring Gael Garcia Bernal, Benjamin Bratt. Disney, $39.99, 2/27/2018.
LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER (2018 REMASTER) [BLU-RAY] (2001): "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider may be the most successful movie based on a videogame ever made, but it doesnít take much for that crown, and Raider only fitfully entertains. The flick has some good segments, and Angelina Jolie neatly embodies the cartoony lead, but the film seems poorly paced and jumpy." Starring Angelina Jolie, Daniel Craig, $22.99, 3/6/2018.
LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER: THE CRADLE OF LIFE [BLU-RAY] (2003): "Without Angelina Jolie, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life would probably be little more than an average action/adventure flick. Actually, even with Jolie it rarely seems better than average, but the actress helps give the movie a decent personality." Starring Angelina Jolie, Gerard Butler. Paramount, $22.98, 3/6/2018.
RAISING ARIZONA [BLU-RAY] (1987): "While Raising Arizona boasts a good cast and well-regarded filmmakers, I canít find much about it to like. The movie milks cheap stereotypes for laughs and lacks real wit." Starring Nicolas Cage, Holly Hunter. Fox, $16.99, 8/30/2011.
GATE II [BLU-RAY] (1992): "At times, Gate II brings us some fun horror moments. However, the film comes saddled with a sloppy narrative and never quite connects." Starring Louis Tripp, Pamela Segall. Shout, $29.99, 2/27/2018.
GODZILLA [BLU-RAY 3D] (2014): "As a franchise reboot, 2014ís Godzilla shows promise but it falls flat too much of the time. The 3D presentation adds a bit of depth but fails to become especially dynamic." Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen. Warner, $24.99, 9/16/2014.
