It’s rare to come upon a movie that’s so obnoxious and worse, void of laughs but Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star does it so damn well. The character seems to be a cast off of from “Saturday Night Live” and the entire movie is just one misstep after another. I can’t give Swardson too much crap outside the fact he did have his hand in writing, but otherwise this is a definite skip.

Ice Quake isn’t quite the disaster of a movie compared with other Syfy made-for-TV movies but it’s still not very good. It was more interesting to see Victor Garber’s lack of interest than even those whom seemed to actually try. The Blu-ray doesn’t have much to offer with average video and audio transfers.

Catch .44 is a mess of a film that would’ve been gone and forgotten on shelves if not for the name cast the filmmakers managed to gather. The writing isn’t the best and the acting, despite having some good talent, doesn’t make it any better. The Blu-ray at least has serviceable video and audio transfers but the features don’t measure up.

The Final Destination series still runs strong with a fresh film that might recapture some of the magic. The Blu-ray boasts impressive picture and audio but the amount of extras is, at best, weak. Fans will no doubt be buying this one up!

Tanner Hall is the type of movie that won’t be remembered for its story, screenplay or story but for the cast. Rooney Mara, Brie Larson and Amy Ferguson all give good performances however Georgia King shines above the rest. With regards to the Blu-ray, it boasts an excellent looking video and a fine audio transfer; the features, though, don’t measure up to much.

Midnight in Paris continues Woody Allen’s string of success across all genres and this latest romantic comedy takes viewers on a travelogue of scenic Paris along with a plethora of well developed characters which will appeal and even relate to most audiences. I give this a solid recommendation.

Our Idiot Brother is an OK movie but for a comedy doesn’t offer up a lot of laughs and primarily rides the backs of the cast good performances, specifically that of Paul Rudd who makes an otherwise unfunny movie a bit more tolerable. The video and audio transfers are both nice but the disc lacks any substantive features save for a simple commentary.

While I’ve never been a big fan of the characters, Winnie the Pooh has stood the test of time and with this theatrical film, it will hopefully find new fans. The movie itself is fun and wholesome for the entire family. It’s not going to challenge your mind or even break new ground in terms of… well… anything be it animation or voice talents, however I enjoyed it well enough for what it is.

Meet Monica Velour is an uneven film between a story that never quite gels and a central character seemingly taken directly (at least in the looks department) from Napoleon Dynamite but still a worthwhile venture just for Kim Cattrall’s great performance. The Blu-ray has above average audio and video and although there’s only a handful of deleted scenes, the commentary more than makes up for the lack of features.

If it wasn’t for the fact that Disney forced the bulk of the features onto BD-Live, capping them at 480p in nasty letterbox, The Lion King would be nearly a perfect release. But ignoring that, you still have some amazing picture and audio quality along with one of the best animated films to every come out with a Disney logo slapped on it.

Darkness Falls is a cheap PG-13 rated horror film that, despite its poor quality in story and direction, still made a fair amount at the box office ($47m on an $11m budget) only showing the studios are right to continue releasing these drab water-downed horror films.

Blitz might not be a top notch British crime-drama but I did find it mostly impressive even if Statham doesn’t exactly stretch his acting abilities as this character isn’t that far removed from his others. That being said, it was at least a compelling film that managed to entertain me for the 95-minute running time.
