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.

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.

This fourth season of The Originals is, for me, more of the same. Some of the stories aren’t terribly compelling (so to speak) but I still enjoy Joseph Morgan’s Klaus character and at least the season is watchable.

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…

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.

Once Upon a Time in Venice doesn’t quite work either as crime or comedy, but I have to admit to chucking a few times here and there and can appreciate the cast, though the likes of John Goodman and Famke Janssen were underutilized.

Re-Animator is a fun horror-comedy from the mid-80s, with enough blood to satisfy gore-hounds, and receives a nice upgrade over its 2012 Blu-ray stocked full of wonderful extras, a few new to this release from Arrow Video, and offering up excellent video and audio transfers.

Teen Wolf Too is really the quintessential example of a needless sequel, though not nearly as awful as something like Weekend at Bernie’s 2, not that’s all saying that much, even Michael J. Fox’s charm could’ve saved this.
