RIO 2 [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "While it doesn’t dazzle, Rio 2 offers a definite improvement over the original flick. Looser, funnier and more likable, it delivers an enjoyable experience much of the time." Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway. Fox, $39.99, 7/15/2014.
SINGLE MOM'S CLUB [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Buried beneath one-dimensional characters and simplistic lessons, The Single Moms Club lacks much appeal. Although it starts fairly well, it quickly sags and turns into a tedious melodrama." Starring Nia Long, Amy Smart. Lionsgate, $39.99, 7/22/2014.
ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "At times, All Cheerleaders Die offers an involving experience. However, it tends to sputter as it progresses and becomes less consistent than I’d like." Starring Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee. RLJ Entertainment, $29.97, 7/22/2014.
PETER GABRIEL - BACK TO FRONT [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "About 45 years into his career, Peter Gabriel remains a strong concert performer, and we see his current skill set in Back to Front Live in London. The show comes with some flaws and doesn’t match Gabriel’s best work, but it still delivers an enjoyable piece." Starring Peter Gabriel. Eagle Rock, $19.98, 6/24/2014.
NOAH [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Though not a wholly satisfying Biblical epic, Noah does more right than wrong, and it gets better as it progresses. By the end, it turns into a fairly exciting and moving experience." Starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly. Paramount, $39.99, 7/29/2014.
ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS - CRITERION COLLECTION [BLU-RAY]: (1955) "With All That Heaven Allows, we find a well-crafted romance that sputters due to other problems. From its overwrought melodrama to the lack of chemistry between its leads to the thin social commentary, the movie doesn’t present much in the way of entertainment." Starring Jane Wyman, Rock Hudson. Criterion, $39.95, 6/10/2014.
HEAVEN IS FOR REAL [BLU-RAY]: (2014) "Despite a good cast, Heaven Is For Real doesn’t become better than TV movie fare. It comes with a one-sided, heavy-handed moral tale that lacks nuance or drama." Starring Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly. Sony, $40.99, 7/22/2014.
