SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER: DIRECTOR'S CUT [BLU-RAY] (1977): "Although Saturday Night Fever probably should come across as frightfully dated, the movie still seems compelling and engaging after 40 years. The new 'Director's Cut' fails to improve the movie and makes only minimal changes to the original." Starring John Travolta, Karen Lynn Gorney. Paramount, $16.99, 5/2/2017.
TANGLED [BLU-RAY 3D] (2010): "As a 'princess fairy tale', Tangled provides reasonable entertainment but it seems rather derivative and lacks a certain quality that would make it special. Though the 3D presentation seems decent, it fails to add much to the presentation." Starring Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi. Disney, $49.99, 3/29/2011.
DIVORCE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON [BLU-RAY] (2016): "A mix of drama and (mostly) comedy, Divorce offers sporadic pleasures. While parts of the series deliver humor and insight, it seems inconsistent and doesnít hit the mark as often as Iíd like." Starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Thomas Haden Church. HBO, $24.98, 5/9/2017.
DESPICABLE ME [BLU-RAY 3D] (2010): "Despicable Me will never be a favorite of mine, but this 3D presentation makes it a lot more fun than in its less interesting 2D version." Starring Steve Carell, Jason Segel. Universal, $29.98, 12/14/2010.
WOMAN OF THE YEAR: CRITERION COLLECTION [BLU-RAY] (1942): "As the first film to pair Katharine Hepburn with Spencer Tracy, Woman of the Year boasts a special place in cinema history. Unfortunately, it seems lackluster as a film, for it fails to create interesting characters or entertaining situations." Starring Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy. Criterion, $39.95, 4/18/2017.
BEHIND ENEMY LINES [BLU-RAY] (2001): "While films like Behind Enemy Lines usually work for me, this one doesnít. I canít totally explain why it falls short of the mark, but the filmís excessive simplicity and overheated jingoism leave me cold." Starring Owen Wilson, Gene Hackman. Fox, $9.99, 11/14/2006.
