Little Big Lies seems like more or less a grown-up version of Pretty Little Liars and does excel thanks to a great ensemble cast that includes Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and new to the season, the venerable Meryl Streep.

Black Mass, although decent enough, is a disappointment considering the subject and a well rounded and respected cast headlined by the versatile Johnny Depp. However, in the end it felt underwhelming and pedestrian which is a shame as filmmaker Scott Cooper could be a respectable director.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a film with so much potential squandered for the sake of a buck using blatant in-movie advertising but instead of furthering the story, they only served to take one out of the film despite some good performances, particularly Ben Stiller and Kristen Wiig, with honorable mention for Adam Scott for playing one of the biggest/best cinematic douchebag.

Torque is a biker version of The Fast and the Furious (from its producer no less) sans any memorable characters and includes terrible dialogue, a lame story (even for a movie like this) and even worse visual effects culminating with an awful, and confusing, finale.

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.

The Echo Bridge 4-film set of “quality” Hellraiser sequels is barebones in terms of features but I guess if you’re a fan of the franchise, I think the audio and video transfers are a step up from their DVD counterparts. At a low price, it’s also not a bad deal but know you’re not going to get anything special.
