BELIEVE ME [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Believe Me wants to provide a biting piece of satire or an affirmation of faith, but it lacks the conviction to go where it needs to go. It seems to worry too much that itíll offend anyone so it fails to present the needed snap." Starring Alex Russell, Johanna Braddy. Virgil Films, $17.99, 3/3/2015.
BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES [BLU-RAY]: (1970) "After the rich and exciting Planet of the Apes, its first sequel comes as a massive disappointment. It lacks an interesting story, compelling action, or much reason to exist other than as an excuse to make money. I guess it succeeded since they created three more Apes sequels, but I didnít think much of Beneath." Starring James Franciscus, Charlton Heston. Fox, $25.00, 11/4/2008.
FOXCATCHER [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "An ending with a movie attached, Foxcatcher provides a slow drama. With 134 minutes at its disposal, it should give us a rich character study, but instead it simply meanders and goes nowhere." Starring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell. Sony, $34.99, 3/3/2015.
FRANKENSTEIN [BLU-RAY]: (1931) "It's been more than 80 years since Frankenstein hit movie screens, and while it may not shock and terrify audiences like it did back then, it remains a very entertaining and compelling film." Starring Boris Karloff, Colin Clive. Universal, $19.98, 9/2/2014.
BIG HERO 6 [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "As a comic book adventure, Big Hero 6 provides reasonable fun. It could be tighter, better paced and more inventive, but it delivers enough entertainment to make it worthwhile." Starring Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit. Disney, $39.99, 2/24/2015.
COLLEGE COEDS VS. ZOMBIE HOUSEWIVES: (2015) "Despite a mostly gorgeous cast, College Coeds vs. Zombie Housewives lacks much zing. The women look great but the story goes nowhere and the copious amounts of fake sex become tedious." Starring Mary Carey, Christine Nguyen. Retromedia, $14.98, 3/24/2015.
THE CAPTIVE [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "For a while, The Captive manages to deliver an intriguing twist on an abduction tale. Unfortunately, it loses steam and focus as it goes, so it turns into a moderately dissatisfying mess along the way." Starring Ryan Reynolds, Rosario Dawson. Lionsgate, $24.99, 3/3/2015.
