Father Figures is just the latest in the litany of forgettable throwaway duo/buddy comedies that constantly come down the line and are in-and-out of theaters. That said, it’s not horrible and it did have a few laughs, but otherwise I won’t see it again.
The Girl with All the Gifts is one of the more surprising movies of 2016 more because it’s yet another in a long line of zombie movies that actually manage to entertain even if it doesn’t exactly break new ground in the genre.

Anesthesia is a bit uneven in its storytelling with some elements not quite coming together as others, but the performances by Sam Waterston and Kristen Stewart, with honorable mention to Gretchen Mol, makes for a more than watchable drama particularly for those who enjoy ensemble pictures.
Tarzan seems to be the ignored stepchild amongst Disney’s animated titles (talking 80s and 90s), taking a backseat to Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Aladdin or The Little Mermaid but it’s a fun and finely animated flick with some good voice casting and incredible sequences, especially the first-person view shots. The Blu-ray released by Buena Vista offers up amazing audio/video transfers and the features, albeit nothing new, is decent enough.
Dangerous Liaisons excels on the backs of some fantastic performances, excellent technical aspects from the direction, writing, set design, costume design and cinematography. The Blu-ray offers up solid video and audio transfers and while there’s not much in the way of features, the commentary is well worth listening to.
