Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 is a good step down from the first movie but still enjoyable enough even if the jokes at times feel forced and the story not quite as strong, and a villain’s motivations a bit of a letdown. That said, the performances were mostly good especially Karen Gillan and Michael Rooker.

NCIS: New Orleans: The Third Season isn’t much of, if any, improvement of its previous two years as the writing is still subpar and acting not much better. On the plus side, and only because I’m a fan, I did like the inclusion of Vanessa Ferlito and will at least give the fourth season a chance.

Black Sails: The Complete Fourth Season is a solid and fine finale for the series that, as in previous seasons, is notable for the performances of Toby Stephens and Hannah New with special acknowledgment to Ray Stevenson as Blackbeard, whose presence is always welcomed.

It’s something to go into a movie with low expectations and Snatched actually was a tad better, that’s not saying much, however. The first 20-minutes or so was a slog to sit through but as Schumer and Hawn are together in South America, and especially when Maloni enters the picture (in an all too brief role), things did pick up.

The Exception is a well acted and finely told story featuring strong performances from Lily James, Jai Courtney – both sharing wonderful chemistry – and the always fantastical, Christopher Plummer. At the very least this is well worth a rental.

Probably the only thing the Blackbeard mini-series is remembered for is being one of Jessica Chastain’s first major roles, otherwise most everything in this seemed cheap from including the production and at nearly three hours, a slog to sit through.

Alien: Covenant had plenty of potential as it starts off well enough before taking a nosedive into derivative territory, filled with idiotic characters, and an utterly stupid finale.

You’re enjoyment for Killing Hasselhoff depends on a couple things: one is if you have any interest in “The Hoff” (which I don’t) or like Ken Jeong’s style of humor (again, which I don’t), thus this was a tough sit through as most of the humor didn’t really land very well.

Chuck is a run-of-the-mill boxing drama that features some solid performances headlined by Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss and Jim Gaffigan, though in Schreiber’s case, it’s amazing the work he was able to do with the amount of make-up caked on his face…

Finally after all these years, all 4 seasons of The Secret Life of Alex Mack is available and while the show is cheesy, it’s still entertaining for what it is. On the downside there are no bonus material and the video/audio transfers are both substandard but with a low SRP, to the point you’ll be able to pick this up on the cheap.

This 2005 TV adaptation of The Poseidon Adventure is pretty awful. Not only is the acting bad, I honestly expected a bit more from Rutger Hauer and even Peter Weller, it’s a story stretched across 170+ minutes, it is quite tedious to sit through.
