Judgment Night isn’t what one call a “smart” thriller or anything but it is awfully fun courtesy of its charming cast headlined by Emilio Estevez, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Denis Leary (with special mention to Stephen Dorff and Jeremy Piven).
Draft Day isn’t a great movie and probably ranks in the bottom half of sports films, but there’s some entertainment value and Kevin Costner helps to elevate the material far beyond what it deserves. The direction is at least interesting by Ivan Reitman and the supporting cast, albeit not well utilized, is respectable.
This “Mastered in 4K” Blu-ray release does offer excellent audio and video transfers but it’s not that much better versus the original Blu-ray release. Add to that this version fails to port over any features so you’re really losing out and if you do already own it, the nearly $30 is REALLY not worth it…
Although hardly a great sequel even when compared with the others, Ice Age: Continental Drift overcomes any problems with a thin plot with at least a modestly fun adventure with likeable characters and jokes which mostly hit the mark. No, it’s not remotely close to anything Pixar has put out or even DreamWorks Animation for that matter, but since it only clocks in at 88-minutes, it’s a breezy flick to watch on a slow afternoon which the entire family can enjoy.
Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas Special is a fun animated short and fans of the Ice Age franchise will get a kick out of it. And even if you haven’t seen the other films, there’s still a fun time to be had. With regards to the Blu-ray, given the retail price is $15, that is a bit steep even with a discount. If you can grab this for $5 then it’d be worth it.
