The 9 Lives Movie Collection is the usual cheap release put out by Mill Creek mostly recycling Sony movies they have the rights for and probably were part of a collection in the past. Considering the movies here, you’re really not getting high quality work but some entertaining flicks mixed in with some bad ones

The Lincoln Lawyer isn’t breaking any new ground in the legal thriller genre. The plot itself is less mystery and more character so those expecting some twist might be disappointed. That being said, as somebody who has never been enamored with Matthew McConaughey, here he’s near pitch perfect for the part.

Session 9 doesn’t feature great performances, though Caruso is a lot of fun to watch, though Peter Mullan and Josh Lucas had a few solid scenes, and the writing is, at best, so-so, but writer/director Brad Anderson did take full advantage of the real-life creepy location of the mental hospital to great effect.

The Deep End is a mostly well acted drama-thriller with Tilda Swinton giving a great performance while Goran Visnjic, attempting to follow in the footsteps of “ER” alum George Clooney, seems out of place but gives it his best. The catalog Blu-ray released by Fox has so-so audio/video transfers and an acceptable selection of features ported over from the DVD version.

Big Sur is a solid drama featuring great performances, particularly from Jean-Marc Barr while the cinematography and score are both absolutely beautiful. The DVD released by Ketchup Entertainment is pretty minimal with good audio/video transfers but limited in the bonus feature arena.

Sweet Home Alabama is a fine romantic comedy that at least at times breaks the genre mold. Reese Witherspoon plays her usual role as a sassy character but she’s still charming and for his part, Josh Lucas serves as a suitable love interest. The Blu-ray is average fare for a catalogue title with some basic features and adequate audio and video transfers.

J. Edgar is one of those films that you can see the passion be it from the costume design, production design and the cast. It’s unfortunate that the screenplay never quite gives the viewer a reason to care either way. Worst still, the movie plods along at a slow and arduous pace and although I appreciate the non-linear storytelling (it worked for Scorsese in The Aviator after all), it doesn’t do any justice for the character in the long run.

By no means is Daydream Nation a perfect movie as it doesn’t quite hit the emotional notes but it’s still well worth checking out. Kat Dennings delivers a fine performance alongside a solid supporting cast who take the script up a notch. The Blu-ray unfortunately offers little in terms of features but the video and audio transfers are both very good.

Life as We Know It provides some decent laughs here and there but the film as a whole doesn’t work all that well. The first problem, and is usually the nail in the coffin for the rom-com, is the two leads didn’t have much chemistry but the bigger issue for me was the foundation and set-up which made little sense so from that point on, I just didn’t become fully invested in the plot or characters.

Poseidon isn’t the absolute dud some have made it out to be. If you don’t compare it with the 1972 classic, it’s actually an enjoyable film, but it’s also fascinating to see the tons of money Warner Bros. and the  production companies shelled out to put forth such amazing spectacles and yet an incredibly, at best, average script.
