JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM [BLU-RAY] (2018): "Bogged down with strange and unnecessary choices, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom feels like a missed opportunity. It makes too many missteps to turn into a winning adventure." Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard. Universal, $34.98, 9/18/2018.
OCEAN'S 8 [4K UHD] (2018): "Though not a bad film, Ocean’s 8 fails to live up to its potential – and star power – as it turns into sporadic entertainment. The 4K's visuals boast clear improvements over the already appealing Blu-ray." Starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett. Warner, $44.95, 9/11/2018.
AMERICAN PSYCHO [4K UHD] (2018): "A darkly comedic look at the 80s and violence, American Psycho works in spurts. The 4K UHD upgrades the Blu-ray in all ways, especially visuals, as the old release looked awful." Starring Christian Bale, Willem Dafoe. Lionsgate, $22.99, 9/25/2018.
THE AWFUL TRUTH: CRITERION COLLECTION [BLU-RAY] (1937): "A mostly engaging comedy, The Awful Truth doesn’t live up to the heights of classic films. Still, it benefits from appealing actors and becomes a reasonably likable effort." Starring Cary Grant, Irene Dunne. Criterion, $39.95, 4/17/2018.
SUPERGIRL: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON [BLU-RAY] (2017-18): "Due to a semi-lackluster year-long narrative, Season Three of Supergirl seems spottier than I’d like. While it comes with a mix of good shows and remains generally entertaining, S3 emphasizes soap opera drama over action, and that’s not an effective move." Starring Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks. Warner, $49.99, 9/18/2018.
THE PUNISHER [BLU-RAY] (2004): "As a violent, 'R'-rated tale, The Punisher delivers intermittent thrills at best. Though it gives us the occasional impactful moment, too much of it feels generic and forgettable." Starring Thomas Jane, John Travolta. Lionsgate, $9.99, 6/27/2006.
