MOTEL HELL [BLU-RAY]: (1980) "With Motel Hell, we find part of a good horror movie. It starts well but loses its way as it progresses." Starring Rory Calhoun, Nancy Parsons. Shout! Factory, $29.93, 8/12/2014.
ZZ TOP - LIVE AT MONTREUX 2013 [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "At its best, ZZ Top: Live at Montreux 2013 delivers a moderately positive concert from a good little rock band. It never rises above the level of “fairly decent”, unfortunately, and it seems like an enjoyable but lackluster show." Starring ZZ Top. Eagle Rock Entertainment, $19.98, 7/22/2014.
PING PONG SUMMER [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Going into Ping Pong Summer, I hoped to find a warm, witty nostalgic comedy. Instead, I located an amateurish, formless exercise in pointlessness." Starring Marcello Conte, Myles Massey. Millennium Entertainment, $29.99, 8/5/2014.
THE KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE [BLU-RAY]: (1977) "I've seen less entertaining films than The Kentucky Fried Movie, but not many. The picture wants to be an outrageous and daring comedy, but it only succeeds in appearing stupid and inane." Starring Donald Sutherland, George Lazenby. Shout! Factory, $19.97, 7/2/2013.
RIO 2 [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "While it doesn’t dazzle, Rio 2 offers a definite improvement over the original flick. Looser, funnier and more likable, it delivers an enjoyable experience much of the time." Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway. Fox, $39.99, 7/15/2014.
SINGLE MOM'S CLUB [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Buried beneath one-dimensional characters and simplistic lessons, The Single Moms Club lacks much appeal. Although it starts fairly well, it quickly sags and turns into a tedious melodrama." Starring Nia Long, Amy Smart. Lionsgate, $39.99, 7/22/2014.
ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "At times, All Cheerleaders Die offers an involving experience. However, it tends to sputter as it progresses and becomes less consistent than I’d like." Starring Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee. RLJ Entertainment, $29.97, 7/22/2014.
