Zoolander No. 2 might’ve had good intentions behind the camera for Ben Stiller and its cast, but the jokes rarely landed leaving us with the stupidity of the original without any of comedy. I can’t say I had a displeasured experience while watching, merely indifference and counting down the time until it would finally end.

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.

Much like the “DreamWorks Spooky Stories” released a few weeks back, this Holiday collection is great for the entire family. It’s especially cool to get the main actors to reprise their roles for the animated shorts while the animation looks amazing. The audio/video transfers are great and a fine upgrade over the DVD versions. It’s light on features but if you can snag this for under $10, then it would be worth it.

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is a fun, light-hearted, comedy-adventure flick that both parents and kids will enjoy. The Blu-ray combo set has a fine set of features to keep one busy for a couple of hours and excellent audio/video transfers. This is a no-brainer and blind-buy if you haven’t seen it, purchase especially if you already own the first two movies.

Tower Heist has a few issues dealing the plot’s logic but thanks to a fine ensemble cast, I’m able to overlook any of the script’s shortcomings; it gets the job done with both the crime and comedy. The Blu-ray offers up solid video and audio transfers a good amount of features with a better selection than what I’ve seen lately from other studios.

Megamind is one of the better non-Pixar computer animated releases and for DreamWorks scores another victory after the response for the highly entertaining How to Train Your Dragon. As for this movie, the voice casting was genius and perfectly fit each roll from the heroic Metro Man voice by Brad Pitt to the villainous ineffectiveness of Will Ferrell as the title character, it all works so well with a clever script and well done animation.

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

The sequel to the 2006 box office smash, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian starts off awfully slow referencing many of the events of the original that even those who saw the first one (like myself) still was quite unfunny. But as the film dragged on and the inane plot took some kind of shape, the movie manages to be some fun by the end.
