Sorry for the lack of update Monday. A major hailstorm knocked out power for an extended period so it became impossible!
TRUE ROMANCE: LIMITED EDITION [BLU-RAY] (1993): "While I like the films Quentin Tarantino directs, when another person takes on his material, the results seem less interesting. From Tony Scott, True Romance comes across as too flashy and glossy to succeed." Starring Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette. Arrow, $49.95, 6/28/2022.
SALUDOS AMIGOS [BLU-RAY] (1943): "By no stretch of the imagination does Saludos Amigos become a classic piece of Disney animation, but it provides modest entertainment. It also acts as a bit of a look behind the scenes for Disney in the 1940s, which makes it fun." Starring Clarence Nash, José Oliveira. Disney, $49.99, 1/30/2018.
UNCHARTED [BLU-RAY] (2022): "An adventure in the Indiana Jones vein, Uncharted offers a superficial, cartoony affair that never really connects. Despite all the action on display, the movie feels contrived and oddly dull." Starring Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg. Sony, $38.99, 5/10/2022.
SAW [BLU-RAY] (2004): "Back in 2004, Saw became a decent hit that spawned a long series of sequels and spinoffs. I must admit I fail to see the appeal of this original film, as it squanders a promising premise to end up as a sluggish tale." Starring Cary Elwes, Leigh Whannell. Lionsgate, $14.99, 7/20/2021.
BEVERLY HILLS COP II [4K UHD] (1987): "When one thinks of generic, cookie-cutter sequels, an image of Beverly Hills Cop II might come to mind. Though not a bad piece of work, it often echoes the first movie and feels like an uninspired facsimile." Starring Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold. Paramount, $25.99, 5/17/2022.
BABE [BLU-RAY] (1995): "A charming little family fable, Babe hits all the right notes. It sends s message without too much moralizing and seems sweet without sappiness." Starring James Cromwell, Christine Cavanaugh. Universal, $14.98, 4/5/2011.
