Book Club is a fun and well acted comedy-drama featuring four wonderful performances from its leads Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen, and a respectable supporting cast.

Interiors is the latest of the, at least to me, obscure Woody Allen films to find their way onto Blu-ray. The film itself is fine headlined by some fine performances and at least a compelling enough story.

Finding Dory may not have the emotional resonance of its predecessor, yet it’s still a highlight entertaining entry in the Pixar line, even if it’s on the lower half of their films, which have generally been high quality work with one exception (Cars 2).

Morning Glory failed to shine bright at the box office (sorry for the pun), but on home video we now can see the charm and charisma that Rachel McAdams brings to every role while the supporting cast fulfill their parts quite well. However, even though the video and audio transfer are pretty good, there’s very little in terms of features as it seems the studio didn’t want to put any more money into this release than they already had.
