The Con Is On took 3 years to find distribution but it should have stayed in what vault it was found in as it was just an all around awful crime-comedy, failing in both respects, which is a shame as it is a respectable ensemble cast.

Mission: Impossible III is a nice change-up from the lame sequel with a better emotional core for Ethan Hunt as a character and Cruise seemed far more at ease in the role compared to M:I-2.

Allegiant is the latest mundane entry in the Divergent Series and while I didn’t think it was classically bad and not an original moment from the production to the visual effects, heavily borrowing from other dystopian-set movies, I can’t say was bored and I at least did care about the Tris character.

I know plenty have hated the Divergent Series thus far and although hardly great, I found portions at least semi-entertaining but that’s about it. Unlike Hunger Games: Catching Fire and to a lesser extent Mockingjay Part 1, Insurgent just kind of “is”.

Divergent is what I’d like to call a ‘nice’ movie. There’s nothing here terrible offensive but at the same time, it doesn’t break new ground either. The direction is more than adequate and the performance by Shailene Woodley is strong. But for all the good, the story structure is odd.

Unlike Hunger Games: Catching Fire and to a lesser extent Mockingjay Part 1, Insurgent just kind of “is”. There’s nothing really memorable and the performances are limited thanks to a screenplay that could’ve been better.

Divergent is what I’d like to call a ‘nice’ movie. There’s nothing here terrible offensive but at the same time, it doesn’t break new ground either. The direction is more than adequate and the performances are good with Shailene Woodley attaining near greatness continuing her winning streak and is clearly the right choice to carry the franchise. But for all the good, the story structure is odd with the bulk of the time relegated to the training with another plotline almost an afterthought taking over the third act.

“Nikita” The Complete First Season is one hell of a ride. There’s plenty of kick ass action by a sexy lead actress, some decent writing, interesting storylines and adequate to good acting from the main cast. The Blu-ray has some expansive features (more so than most TV series get today), sharp-looking video and lossless audio which, while it won’t knock your socks off, still sounds great.

The King of Fighters is yet another entry in the loathed video game to theater camp. While I don’t think it’s nearly as bad as something like Super Mario Bros. or anything Uwe Boll has touched, it’s certainly not a very good movie either. Getting away from how they translated the game, which I couldn’t care less about seeing I’ve never even played it, the martial arts elements are nothing special and the acting, especially on the part of Ray Park, was atrocious.
