CHANGE BEGINS WITHIN: A BENEFIT CONCERT FOR THE DAVID LYNCH FOUNDATION (2009): "As a concert presentation, Change Begins Within: A Benefit Concert for the David Lynch Foundation works pretty well – if you’re a Beatles lover, that is. Their music dominates the show and that’s fine with me, but it may disappoint fans of the other artists on the bill." Starring Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr. Eagle Rock, $15.98, 9/1/2007.
BOWFINGER [BLU-RAY] (1999): "We’ve seen plenty of Hollywood parodies over the years, but few amuse as well as Bowfinger. While it reinvents no wheels, it uses excellent performances from a terrific cast to turn into a consistently enjoyable flick." Starring Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy. Universal, $14.98, 8/8/2017.
INCONCEIVABLE [BLU-RAY] (2017): "A new entry in an old genre, Inconceivable becomes a dull stab at a thriller. The movie fails to develop any form of tension or drama, factors that leave it as a slow slog." Starring Gina Gershon, Nicolas Cage. Lionsgate, $24.99, 8/29/2017.
THE IN-LAWS: CRITERION COLLECTION [BLU-RAY] (1979): "A comedic farce from start to finish, The In-Laws throws logic under the bus – and I don’t care. The movie comes with so many solid laughs that it easily overcomes its inherent ridiculousness." Starring Peter Falk, Alan Arkin. Criterion, $39.95, 7/5/2016.
EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING [BLU-RAY] (2017): "A variation on the “doomed romance” genre, Everything, Everything lacks substance. The movie drags on and on without nearly enough material to sustain its 96 minutes." Starring Amandla Stenberg, Nick Robinson. Warner, $35.99, 8/15/2017.
FAST AND FURIOUS [BLU-RAY] (2009): "Commercially, Fast and Furious reinvigorated a declining franchise. Creatively, it provides a collection of good driving scenes in search of a compelling story." Starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker. Universal, $14.98, 7/28/2009.
