There’s a reason these multi-pack movie collections have a small SRP as they’re geared toward more casual movie fans and I suspect some of these were previously available in some fashion in other collections. If you’re not a videophile and want a wide selection to watch on a Saturday night, these might be worth the price.

Man Down does shine light on the important subject of PTSD for returning soldiers and as commendable as that is, it’s unfortunate the screenplay does it little justice but I will say Shia LaBeouf’s performance is amazing and it does feature a respectable supporting cast.

There’s no question When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth is not a very good movie but even as one trying to ride the coattails of One Million Years B.C., it fails on that level as well. The only plus I found was for the impressive special effects (for its time), only a shame the story and acting wasn’t good.

Solace was one of the better surprises of this young 2017 year (even though it was technically released on a limited level in late 2016). Even so, I found it to be a compelling suspense-thriller with some fine performances from Hopkins, Morgan and Farrell and well worth at least a rental.

While my opinion of RoboCop 2 dramatically changed, RoboCop 3 is still a crappy movie made by well intentioned filmmakers. The story itself is fine but the loss of Peter Weller was felt and like most movies that add kids into the mix (Alien 3), it’s rarely a good thing.

As Collector’s Editions go from Shout Factory, this might be the weaker of the bunch (only by comparison to the others), but this RoboCop 2 does contain a few actual features including a nice audio commentary and five solid featurettes delving into the origins and making of the sequel.

Trolls is one of those half-baked animated features that might feature nice animation, it’s something that’s probably geared more towards kids and has little to offer their parents; on the plus side, the voice acting wasn’t bad.

This Robert Zemeckis helmed WWII romance-drama doesn’t exactly live up to its potential. While the production and costume designs were impressive, I found the performances particularly that of Brad Pitt, to be stilted and a story that failed to connect emotionally.

I don’t think Penny Dreadful quite met up to its potential but with a fine cast headlined by Timothy Dalton, Eva Green and Josh Hartnett, to go along with impressive set and costume designs, it’s certainly more than watchable. This Complete Series set is very much for those who don’t already own the individual releases and it is at a reasonable price.
