I usually enjoy these interconnected ensemble movies but Even Money never quite gelled though the performances from Danny DeVito, Tim Roth were rather good, but not enough to make this a must rental or purchase.
The Nice Guys didn’t quite match my expectations but the laughs still were there and I did enjoy the bro chemistry that developed between Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling to the point I was able to overlook a story that seemed to get stretched a bit too thin, especially going into the third act. It’s no Kiss Kiss Bang Bang but still well worth watching.
Blind Date is a fun little romantic-comedy that, with the casting of Bruce Willis, tries to capture the rivalry/romance of “Moonlighting” which was into its second season when this was released in 1987. The Blu-ray released by RLJ Entertainment has zero bonus material but the video transfer is excellent and the lossless audio is good enough. For a low price, this is well worth picking up.
Cellular is a high-octane thriller with great action and suspense throughout. Kim Basinger, Chris Evans and William H. Macy all turn in great performances with a story that could’ve easily gone wrong and became just another forgettable thriller. The Blu-ray offers up solid video and audio transfers and although there is nothing new in the features department, what is there is fascinating to watch.
