GOD'S POCKET [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "With an excellent cast at its disposal, God’s Pocket comes with strong potential. Unfortunately, it squanders all that talent as it gives us a thin, slow and meandering tale that never develops into anything interesting." Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Richard Jenkins. MPI, $29.98, 9/9/2014.
THE BATTERY [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Though it comes with some worthwhile moments, The Battery lacks the momentum to make it enjoyable on a consistent basis. I like some aspects but think it sputters more than I’d prefer." Starring Jeremy Gardner, Adam Cronheim. Shout! Factory, $19.97, 9/16/2014.
THINK LIKE A MAN TOO [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "After an enjoyable first film, Think Like a Man Too sags. While it gives us some amusement, it comes with a variety of flaws that ensure it never becomes better than mediocre." Starring Michael Ealy, Kevin Hart. Sony, $35.99, 9/16/2014.
LIVE NUDE GIRLS: (2014) "While Live Nude Girls wants to deliver a throwback to wild 80s comedy, it lacks any positive qualities. Saddled with cheap production values, idiotic jokes and poor acting, it turns into a painful experience." Starring Mike Hatton, Dave Foley. Screen Media, $24.98, 8/19/2013.
WILLOW CREEK [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "With Willow Creek, we greet a fairly good entry in the “found footage” genre. While I can’t say it mesmerizes, the film maintains a tense atmosphere and delivers in the end." Starring Alexie Gilmore, Bryce Johnson. Dark Sky, $29.98, 9/9/2014.
ALL THAT JAZZ: CRITERION COLLECTION [BLU-RAY]: (1979) "While the movie didn’t move me as much as it did 30-plus-years-ago, I still found All That Jazz to present a lively and provocative affair." Starring Roy Scheider. Criterion, $39.95, 8/26/2014.
MOMS' NIGHT OUT [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "While not totally devoid of humor, Moms' Night Out comes with such annoying characters that it flops. The movie takes a tired premise and makes it even more tiresome due to its thin script and obnoxious personalities." Starring Sarah Drew, Sean Astin. Sony, $30.99, 9/2/2014
