RAGING BULL: CRITERION COLLECTION [BLU-RAY] (1980): "As a film, Raging Bull remains an admirable enigma to me. I respect the movie and like parts of it, but I never could truly embrace it." Starring Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci. Criterion, $39.95, 7/12/22.
DOWNTON ABBEY: A NEW ERA [4K UHD] (2022): "Clearly many people enjoy Downton Abbey, but I admit that after two movies, I fail to see the appeal. A New Era seems unlikely to bring new converts, as it offers a slow, tedious affair." Starring Hugh Bonneville, Maggie Smith. Universal, $44.98, 7/5/2022.
FATHERHOOD [BLU-RAY] (2021): "With Fatherhood, Kevin Hart leans toward drama as well as comedy. Though the movie brings some entertainment, it seems a bit scattershot and unfocused." Starring Kevin Hart, Alfre Woodard. Sony, $34.99, 6/14/2022.
THE FRISCO KID [BLU-RAY] (1979): "With The Frisco Kid, we find a poorly assembled and never very entertaining movie. It includes a good cast and some comedic potential, but it never goes much of anywhere." Starring Gene Wilder, Harrison Ford. Warner, $21.99, 7/12/2022.
THE BAD GUYS [BLU-RAY] (2022): "Essentially a crummier riff on Zootopia, The Bad Guys offers a muddled animated tale. It mixes action, comedy and a feel-good theme into a surprisingly blah package." Starring Sam Rockwell, Awkwafina. Universal, $34.98, 6/21/2022.
ANATOMY OF A MURDER [4K UHD] (1959): " Anatomy of a Murder offers a terrific movie that translates well to home video. The film maintains a fine pace from start to finish and keeps the viewer thoroughly involved in the story." Starring James Stewart, George C. Scott. Sony, $164.99, 10/12/2021.
