I don’t think The Warrior’s Way is a particularly bad film but it is one that was done a bit amateurishly despite the acting talents of Geoffrey Rush and Danny Huston. In regards to the Blu-ray, the features are forgettable but the audio and video transfers are both excellent so the few fans there are for the film, and they are fairly vocal, will certainly enjoy the experience.

“White Collar” The Complete Second Season once again features a fun dynamic with its cast to go along with a season-long story arc intermixed with a few stand alone stories, making it a good combo for both camps. The DVD has a decent amount of special features with the episode commentaries making the highlight reel while the video and audio transfers are adequate all things considered.

I don’t think Sucker Punch is a movie one should be dismissive of. Yes, an argument can be made that this is basically CGI porn and the story can be nonsensical but I think somewhere in here there is a compelling movie, it just gets lost in the CG and fantasy worlds. The Blu-ray itself has decent features and solid audio and video transfers making this a good purchase for fans, though be forewarned, I’m certain a director’s cut will be released at some point down the line.

Unknown isn’t a particularly special film and it’s nowhere near as great or suspenseful as Taken, but on its own, this is a well developed picture that Neeson fans and those who enjoy a simple mystery will find this to be a fine way to spend two hours on a movie night. The Blu-ray has good video and audio transfers but the features are few and far between, unfortunately.

Beastly is a bad movie, of course “I’ve seen worse.” It’s a film that never quite comes together with a laughable story and one-dimensional characters which seem to come straight from a WB television series. The female teen audience I’m sure will eat every bit of this up, for anybody older though, it’s a meandering tale and a film that was only made to cash in on the Twilight craze.

Happythankyoumoreplease does have some clichés but thanks to the writing, directing and performance by Josh Radnor, it stands above the rest making it more memorable than most indie flicks. As far as the Blu-ray is concerned, the video and audio are both alright, although the video transfer could’ve been a heck lot better and there isn’t a whole lot in terms of features.

Just Go With It might’ve sounded good on paper, or at least on the stage since it is based on a play, but the practicality of it even within the romantic-comedy realm just doesn’t add up. We have two characters that we’re supposed to like, and in fact at times do, but when you take a step back, their actions make no sense.

While Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince didn’t quite grab me compared to a few of its predecessors, it’s still an entertaining entry leading way to what should be an intense two-part finale. The Blu-ray contains some nice features – not up to expectations for a blockbuster, but decent enough – and the video/audio transfers are both fantastic. The features are exactly the same except this time we get a great documentary.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix isn’t great but still quite good and highly entertaining. As to whether or not this Ultimate Edition is worth the money to upgrade is, at best, questionable. The only addition to the set, in terms of actual features, is the hour-long documentary which is well done no doubt but I highly suspect that once Deathly Hallows Part 2 is released, Warner will release a separate documentary with all 8-parts on one disc with some new extra thrown in.

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is a good addition to the DC Universe line and while it isn’t anything special, I did like how they laid the story out in a different way (compared with what they did with Batman: Gotham Knight) and the voice talent was also good with fans getting to at least hear what Nathan Fillion would sound like in the lead role.
