Bulletin - Week of 11/16 - 11/22

Halloween might be behind us now, but 2014 still has plenty of celebratory occasions yet to come! Where to go for viewing ideas? Our oft-praised (by me) special Holiday page, of course! Take a look for suggestions for Thanksgiving or Christmas - and we even have some Hanukkah and New Year's programs, too!

LORD OF ILLUSIONS [BLU-RAY]: (1995) "With 1995’s Lord of Illusions, we discover a good mix of horror, supernatural elements and film noir. The movie falters occasionally but usually delivers a taut, involving piece of work." Starring Scott Bakula, Famke Janssen. Shout! Factory, $29.93, 12/16/2014.

THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY: (1945) "The Picture of Dorian Gray presents a mixed bag of a movie. On one hand, it boasts a fascinating story and some good supporting performances. On the other, the lead actor seems too bland, and the film tells its tale in a lackluster manner." Starring George Sanders, Hurd Hatfield. Warner, $19.97, 10/7/2008.

THE GIVER [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "After more than 20 years since the novel’s publication, The Giver makes it to movie screens – and lands with something of a thud. While the film provides occasional glimmers of life, it seems too inconsistent and derivative to become a strong experience." Starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep. Anchor Bay, $39.99, 11/25/2014.

AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY [BLU-RAY]: (1997) "I never thought that Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery would spawn a successful franchise, but the movie definitely presents a generally amusing and entertaining piece of work. Though erratic, it tosses in enough warm and endearing humor to make it a fun film." Starring Mike Myers, Elizabeth Hurley. New Line, $14.97, 7/2/12.

22 JUMP STREET: (2014) "After the pleasures of the first film, I went into 22 Jump Street with high hopes. Unfortunately, it doesn’t satisfy, as it provides a slow comedy that gets less interesting as it goes." Starring Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill. Sony, $30.99, 11/18/2014.

HELLBOY: DIRECTOR'S CUT [BLU-RAY]: (2004) "Based on my first glimpses of its trailer, I thought Hellboy would be a silly dud. However, the flick provided a pleasant surprise. A lively and well-executed comic book movie, it occasionally faltered but it offered many more positives than negatives." Starring Ron Perlman, Selma Blair. Columbia TriStar, $19.99, 6/5/2007.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR [BLU-RAY 3D]: (2014) "After the gritty, pulpy fun of the original film, I expected similar pleasures from Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Unfortunately, the movie comes across as nothing more than a slick, pointless exercise in style over substance, with little of its predecessor’s vivacity or excitement on display." Starring Eva Green, Mickey Rourke. Anchor Bay, $39.99, 11/18/2014.
