How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is a well done conclusion to the nearly decade-long franchise featuring a well told, if not basic, story to go along with some beautiful animation and nice voice work by the ensemble cast.
RoboCop actually isn’t that bad of a movie and taken on its own, it’s at least enjoyable enough. However, unlike its 1987 counterpart, it’s unlikely to be remembered years from now and like Total Recall (a movie I actually liked), will be a mere footnote alongside so many other remakes and reboots. This one has a few things going for it from an eclectic cast to wonderful production design and cinematography.
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.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice may have greatly disappointed at the box office but I found it to be a mindless but fun movie that has a good mixture of action and comedy that one would expect from a Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer joint venture. The Blu-ray itself presents some OK special features but the video and audio transfers make up for it all.
