Masked and Anonymous is a movie I never had heard of before despite featuring a noteworthy cast, most of whom appeared for the opportunity to work with veteran musician Bob Dylan. For fans of Dylan, this might be a treat.

Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle exemplifies the early 2000s so damn well, and yes I realize McG was parodying the action schlock from that time period (like M:I2) but doesn’t do it very well, or at least the humor rarely lands.

Berlin, I Love You is hardly the worst interconnected ensemble dramas and at least one out of the ten vignettes was somewhat entertaining, one was peculiarly creepy and the other eight on the forgettable side.

This is a case of quantity over quality here, though there are a couple of decent films like Vacancy and I Know What You Did Last Summer (if you like late 90s slasher horror) but otherwise these are movies previously released by Mill Creek re-packaged together.

Rock Dog a third tier animated movie that was based off of a Chinese story  and the style, while pleasant enough, has a thin story and, at best, so-so voice performances. For adults it might be somewhat tedious to sit through, but for younger viewers, it’s harmless enough.

Concussion is, technically speaking, a well made film and features a good performance from Will Smith, but in spite of what works, at its core the movie is missing a soul. In the hands of a more skilled filmmaker it could’ve been emotionally charged and instead it’s rather forgettable.
