Unlike other average films I’ve come across over the years, there are definitely reasons to see Hereafter, if nothing else for the performances. It is unfortunate that the screenplay needed another draft or two to shore up issues with the plot since Clint Eastwood direction is well done to go along with Stern’s beautiful cinematography.

There’s no doubt How Do You Know is a mess of a film yet there is some charm to it and if not for the spastic screenplay it might’ve made for an acceptable, if not forgettable, romantic comedy. Instead despite the efforts of the three leads – not to mention a heavy dose of overacting by Nicholson – the film never really takes off.

The Tourist isn’t as bad as most have been, yet at the same time I don’t quite understand how it received the Golden Globe nominations it did while other more worthy films were left off (see: Morning Glory). That said, if you keep your expectations in check and are willing to suspend some disbelief you just might have a good time with this comedy/thriller.

Scooby-Doo: Curse of the Lake Monster certainly is not a very good film. The acting is subpar at best, the CGI horrid and the main freakin’ title character isn’t even in various and important scenes. While it’s not as bad as I had expected because I did manage to chuckle a couple of times and Hayley Kiyoko makes for a hot Velma that anyone can fall in love with, it’s still not wasting your time on either.

The show itself is actually pretty good especially since it’s geared more towards kids (though there is a fair amount of innuendo that will go over them) but I have a hard time recommending this release because there are only 4 episodes in a 16-episode season. Doing the math, $10/set = $40 for a season with no features, is a tad much. If it these could be had for, say, $5-6/set, then I probably would be on board.

I actually enjoyed “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” far more than I thought I would. It is, however, unfortunate that Warner is playing the game of splitting seasons up rather than just releasing the entire season at once. That said, if you can nab this at a good price (< $10 I’d say), then it is certainly worth it.

S.W.A.T.: Firefight isn’t a great movie by any stretch and in fact has a simple story, but for what it is and for my own expectations going in, I thought it was entertaining enough. Of course, this doesn’t mean it’s worth shelling out $25+ for this release but it may be worth the cost of a 1-night rental. The Blu-ray has fairly average picture and video (compared with other new releases) and a forgettable feature.
