Bulletin - Week of 2/19 - 2/25

BEFORE SUNRISE: CRITERION COLLECTION [BLU-RAY] (1995): "As a tale of a burgeoning relationship with an unfortunate expiration date, Before Sunrise boasts sporadic charisma. However, too much of it seems slow and self-indulgent, as the characters lack the necessary charm to allow us to care about their interactions or fate." Starring Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy. Criterion, $99.95, 2/28/2017.

BLACK RAIN [BLU-RAY] (1989): "While Black Rain always looks great, the movie fails to ever engage the viewer. It uses clichés and one-dimensional characters without substance and doesn’t manage to ever become anything more than a predictable cop drama." Starring Michael Douglas, Andy Garcia. Paramount, $14.98, 6/3/2008.

TRESPASS AGAINST US [BLU-RAY] (2016): "At times, the strong actors involved in Trespass Against Us help carry it, but the story lacks enough forward momentum to create investment in the viewer. In particular, the characters seem too reprehensible to give the audience much reason to care about their journeys." Starring Michael Fassbender, Brendan Gleeson. Lionsgate, $24.99, 3/7/2017.

SLEEPING BEAUTY: DIAMOND EDITION (DISNEY) [BLU-RAY] (1959): "While I really like Disney animated films, I maintain mixed feelings about 1959’s Sleeping Beauty. The movie lives up to its name with arguably the most gorgeous visuals ever to grace an animated feature. However, the pedestrian and ordinary story and characters make it somewhat tedious to watch." Starring Mary Costa, Eleanor Audley. Disney, $39.99, 10/7/2014.

THE YAKUZA [BLU-RAY] (1974): "Ultimately, The Yakuza proves unusual and successful. While the slow pacing can cause some impatience, the movie uses its time to better explore its characters and relationships. Because of that, the story prospers and boasts greater depth than usual." Starring Robert Mitchum, Ken Takakura. Warner, $21.99, 2/14/2017.

THE WOLVERINE [BLU-RAY 3D] (2013): "After a lackluster solo debut in 2009, 2013’s The Wolverine gave the character the cinematic platform he deserved. Gritty, exciting and dramatic, the movie does well for itself." Starring Hugh Jackman, Rila Fukashima. Fox, $24.99, 12/3/2013.
