THE TERROR: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON [BLU-RAY] (2018): "As a drama about survival in harsh conditions, Season One of The Terror works fairly well. While I don’t think it quite lives up to its potential, the series usually creates a reasonably involving piece." Starring Jared Harris, Ciarán Hinds. Lionsgate, $29.97, 8/21/2018.
THE MIRACLE SEASON (2018): "A standard-issue inspirational story, The Miracle Season seems as trite as its title. Despite a fairly good basic narrative, the film fails to rise above the level of mediocrity." Starring Helen Hunt, William Hurt. Fox, $29.98, 7/31/2018.
THE HOUSE OF TOMORROW [BLU-RAY] (2018): "One of a skillion “coming of age” stories, The House of Tomorrow lacks much that allows it to stands out from that crowded field. However, its cast manages to lend depth to the proceedings, so they make it an enjoyable journey." Starring Ellen Burstyn, Nick Offerman. Shout, $22.97, 8/14/2018.
JURASSIC WORLD [4K UHD] (2015): "While not the best of the franchise, Jurassic World overcomes some flaws and mostly brings us vibrant, lively action-adventure. Some aspects of the 4K UHD improve on the Blu-ray, but others don't." Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard. Universal, $79.98, 5/22/2018.
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.
