Backtrace wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but it is your run-of-the-mill poorly made direct-to-video flick that will eventually be <$10 level in no time, though you might be missing out on the sweet title-embossed slip cover…

Warner Archive’s release of Vision Quest may not wow you in terms of its technical aspects as both the video and audio transfers I’d term as above average, and the bonus material is lacking, but this is a decently made drama from the mid-80s that likely would ever look better.
No Escape is an all around entertaining film perfect for a Saturday movie night. No, it doesn’t make you think or have any profound performances but the acting isn’t bad with Owen Wilson serving as a fine everyman type of character and Pierce Brosnan in his small part is a lot of fun. This is probably worthy of a rental.
Altar isn’t a great supernatural thriller but effective one with solid performances by Matthew Modine and Olivia Williams and would make for good viewing on a Saturday night. The DVD released by Cinedigm is basic with fine video and audio transfers but only a trailer as a bonus feature.
Any Given Sunday is an engaging movie that many sports, especially NFL, will enjoy and not only holds up today, but kind of predicts a few trends that have permeated college and pro football. The Blu-ray released by Warner is a retread of the previous release only adding a single bonus feature which, while nice, is hardly worth the price of a double-dip.
