Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for Guy Ritchie’s ensemble crime-comedy starring Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Goulding and Michelle Dockery.
Pet Sematary Two starring Edward Furlong and Anthony Edwards marks its Blu-ray debut, released on February 25th, from Shout Factory’s Collector’s Edition and includes some new bonus material and a new transfer.
Shooting the Mafia isn’t the strongest documentary, though in fairness I don’t watch or review a whole lot of them generally, but even so this is one that seemed to ride the line between two subjects and isn’t fulfilling in either.
The Grudge (The Untold Chapter) isn’t a lazy sequel (or si-quel) and thanks to Nicolas Pesce does have an interesting and dark look, but the story isn’t up to par and does rely a bit much on the jump scares.
The Contractor/The Fan double feature Blu-ray release isn’t anything remarkable as these aren’t high-quality movies to begin with, however both films do have their moments and Wesley Snipes at least never felt like he was phoning it in.
Hard Hunted is pretty much in-line with the others in this series, especially the last couple, mostly that the cheesy and camp does not outweigh some of the duller moments that keeps it out of good-bad territory.
Knives Out isn’t quite a masterpiece but certainly has roots in a classical Agatha Christie mystery with some modern, topical twists which at times come across as preachy. Other than that, however, this is a wonderful mystery-comedy with a fantastic ensemble.
1917 is a rare movie in these times and even rarer ones taking place during World War I. The performance from George MacKay is great but the biggest takeaway is the one-shot concept from director Sam Mendes which was pretty impressive.
The Ten Commandments Blu-ray from Paramount now comes in Digibook form and has both the 1923 and 1956 feature films, and though they are the same discs, at a discounted price, and if not already owned, worth picking up.
