MILLION DOLLAR ARM [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Though more than a little predictable and more than a little long, Million Dollar Arm still manages entertainment value. Iíd like it more if it was tighter and less sentimental, but it still gives us a decent feel-good story." Starring Jon Hamm, Lake Bell. Disney, $39.99, 10/7/2014.
TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE: 40TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION [BLU-RAY]: (1974) "Based on its reputation and my usual preferences within the horror genre, I expected to like The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Unfortunately, I didnít find much about it that interested me, mostly because it could be cheap and amateurish, and not in a good way." Starring Marilyn Burns, Gunnar Hansen. Dark Sky, $29.99, 9/16/2014.
GONE WITH THE WIND: 75TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION [BLU-RAY]: (1939) "Due to its status as a classic - perhaps even the classic - it's hard not to recommend Gone With the Wind, as I believe everyone should see it at least once. You can't consider yourself a literate film fan if you've never taken in this blockbuster. However, I think it's too flawed a movie to merit more than a screening or two. It's generally entertaining and moves well for a nearly four-hour program, but many of the characters are problematic and the attitudes dated and offensive." Starring Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh. Warner, $49.98, 9/30/2014.
THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD [BLU-RAY]: (1938) "75 years down the road, The Adventures of Robin Hood remains a fine film. Not only do we see its influence on later flicks, but also it still seems exciting and entertaining." Starring Errol Flynn, Claude Rains. Warner, $19.98, 8/26/2008.
HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL - VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION II [BLU-RAY]: (1959) "At its core, House on Haunted Hill shows promise, but the final result doesnít work. The movie seems cheesy and overwrought as it brings us a slow-paced, dull affair with little to offer beyond cheap attempts at scares that donít arrive." Starring Vincent Price, Carol Ohmart. Shout! Factory, $79.97, 10/21/2014.
CHINATOWN [BLU-RAY]: (1974) "Chinatown qualifies as a great movie, and one that deserves its status as a classic." Starring Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway. Paramount, $19.98, 4/3/2012.
EDGE OF TOMORROW [3D BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Edge of Tomorrow gives us a clever sci-fi plot and turns into a lively, exciting action flick. Despite a number of potential pitfalls, it keeps us engaged and entertained." Starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt. Warner, $44.95, 10/7/2014.
