The Exorcist II: The Heretic is not a good movie but one must give kudos to a talented cast, most notably Linda Blair and Richard Burton, for doing their best to wade through a sometimes insane plot.

Dreamscape is a sometimes cheesy 1980s sci-fi thriller but incredibly fun featuring a great cast from a young Dennis Quaid to veterans Max von Sydow and Christopher Plummer. Not sure how much replay value it has but it was enjoyable enough.

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 Judge Dredd release is campier compared with the recent one but like most of Stallone’s films of the 1990s, it does have a certain charm even when the acting can get… hokey. The Blu-ray at least is a solid package with excellent audio/video transfers and even the single featurette, for what it is, isn’t terrible.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is a film that personally offended me, not so much for its use of 9/11 (albeit it doesn’t sit well) but due to a manipulative script, obnoxious, annoying and illogical characters and some of the poorest on-screen chemistry I’ve seen in a while mainly between Oskar and his father which looked and sounded entirely contrived.
