Trick ‘R Treat is a great anthology horror film with some solid performances from the ensemble cast but it’s Michael Dougherty’s script that really stood out telling a compelling interconnected story that still managed to illicit some well done twists.

Super Troopers 2 might’ve been a passion project for the many fans of the 2001 film that garnered cult status over the course of a decade, but for someone who only felt so-so about that one, this sequel was, most of the time, painfully unfunny.

Braveheart is one hell of a film with a powerful performance from Mel Gibson, even when his Scottish accent wasn’t always the best. Beyond that, his direction was well done with some great choreographed battle scenes reminding you, just as it did on Gladiator, of old school epic Hollywood.

RED 2 isn’t as strong as its predecessor, but still incredibly entertaining thanks to is charming and likeable cast that work well together, even if the plot is a bit forced but that’s a sequel for you.

RED is an incredibly fun action-comedy that excels more on its likeable cast than the actual plot which isn’t that great, but a serviceable vehicle for the aging cast, headlined by Bruce Willis whose more at home in this role than his last couple outings of Die Hard.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes isn’t perfect but it is a fine way to reboot the series with a new trilogy, especially after the disastrous Tim Burton version. This addition actually gives the apes more character which will be furthered in the sequel.

The Ring is a well made, finely paced suspense-horror film that features tight editing and pulse-pounding storytelling from Gore Verbinski and some good acting from Naomi Watts. The Blu-ray offers up some OK features including a cool sequel prelude and while the video transfer is more than acceptable, I was a tad disappointed in the audio track.

Adaptation is a, well, interesting viewing experience. It’s a film propelled by a fantastic screenplay and incredible performances from Nicolas Cage (who deserved the Oscar), Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper.
