Read Review | Buy @ Amazon.Com
Judi Dench. Anchor Bay, wide 1.78:1/16x9, DTS-HD 5.1, $34.99, 4/15/2014
When she fell pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee (Judi Dench) was sent to the convent to be looked after as a fallen woman. She cared for her baby for three years until the Church took him from her and sold him, like countless others, to America for adoption. Coerced into signing a document promising never to attempt to see her child again, she nonetheless spent the next fifty years secretly searching for him, unaware that he was searching for her from across the Atlantic.

Bulletin - Week of 4/13 - 4/19

LABOR DAY [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Contrived and borderline moronic, Labor Day wastes talented cast and crew. It becomes a dull, silly romance packed with so many dopey moments that it becomes a near-constant dud." Starring Josh Brolin, Kate Winslet. Paramount, $39.99, 4/29/2014.

FRIDAY THE 13TH - PART 6 - JASON LIVES - THE COMPLETE COLLECTION [BLU-RAY]: (1986) "One of the seriesí weakest efforts, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives feels like an awkward attempt to make it something itís not. It looks as though they wanted to give it more of a Nightmare on Elm Street vibe and seems too goofy and inane to deliver the requisite scares." Starring Thom Mathews, Jennifer Cooke. Paramount, $125.99, 9/13/2013.

WAR OF THE WORLDS - GOLIATH [BLU-RAY 3D]: (2014) "Despite a cool premise, War of the Worlds: Goliath canít develop into anything more than predictable action. It suffers from lethargic storytelling and one-dimensional characters as it sputters from start to finish." Starring Peter Wingfield, Adrian Paul. Anderson Digital, $20.99, 4/1/2014.

SORCERER [BLU-RAY]: (1977) "Though not a success when released in 1977, Sorcerer holds up well over the last 37 years. It brings us an intriguing and eventually dynamic thriller with a lot going for it." Starring Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer. Warner Bros., $27.98, 4/22/2014.

THE NOTEBOOK [BLU-RAY]: (2004) "Slow, predictable and trite, The Notebook gives us lowest common denominator romantic drama. It comes with a talented cast but lacks any real emotion, creativity or drive." Starring Rachel McAdams, Ryan Gosling. New Line, $49.99, 4/30/2013.

THE INVISIBLE WOMAN [BLU-RAY]: (2013) "Based on a real-life affair that involved Charles Dickens, The Invisible Woman could Ė and should Ė have become a gripping romantic drama. Unfortunately, the choice to focus heavily on the affairís gradual development forces the movie to progress at a terribly slow rate and robs it of much potential." Starring Ralph Fiennes, Felicity Jones. Sony, $35.99, 4/15/2014.

THE OTHER GUYS [BLU-RAY 4K]: (2010) "Although it provides mild entertainment, The Other Guys winds up as a disappointment. Despite a lot of talent involved and some scenarios that seem ripe to delight, it falls flat too much of the time and simply lacks the expected wit." Starring Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg. Sony, $19.98, 7/16/2012.
