So long, Thanksgiving - bring on Christmas! That means it's high time to look at our special holiday page!
THE B.F.G. [BLU-RAY] (2016): "Anyone who hopes The BFG will recapture the glory of ET the Extraterrestrial will encounter severe disappointment. Dull, slow and joyless, the movie lacks any of the earlier classicís magic." Starring Ruby Barnhill, Mark Rylance. Disney, $39.99, 11/29/2016.
C.H.U.D. II: BUD THE CHUD [BLU-RAY] (1989): "A sequel in name only, CHUD II: Bud the Chud fizzles in all possible ways. Stupid, witless and inane, the movie offers no entertainment value." Starring Gerrit Graham, Brian Robbins. Lionsgate, $34.97, 11/22/2016.
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD - BLACK & CHROME EDITION [BLU-RAY] (2015): "Via the 'Black & Chrome' edition of Mad Max: Fury Road, we find a version with a monochromatic palette. This doesn't work, as the black and white visuals don't suit the movie's anarchic feel." Starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron. Warner, $29.99, 12/6/2016.
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS - COLLECTOR'S EDITION [BLU-RAY 3D] (2015): "A rousing return to form, Star Wars: The Force Awakens restores much of the luster lost during the much-lamented Prequel Trilogy. Packed with action and drama, the film reminds us why the franchise enchanted us in the first place." Starring Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley. Disney, $49.99, 11/15/2016.
FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS [BLU-RAY] (2016): "As a view of an infamous no-talent, Florence Foster Jenkins avoids cynicism and mockery. Instead, it emphasizes its leadís love of art and becomes a fairly sweet appreciation of this pure spirit." Starring Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant. Paramount, $39.99, 12/13/2016.
RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD 3, THE [BLU-RAY] (1993): "No one expects much from third chapters in low-budget horror series, and Return of the Living Dead 3 gives us a forgettable experience. Stuck with weak production values and bad acting, the movie offers little entertainment value." Starring Mindy Clarke, J. Trevor Edmond. Lionsgate, $34.97, 11/22/2016.
