Braveheart is one hell of a film with a powerful performance from Mel Gibson, even when his Scottish accent wasn’t always the best. Beyond that, his direction was well done with some great choreographed battle scenes reminding you, just as it did on Gladiator, of old school epic Hollywood.

Daddy’s Home 2 might not be very good and some Christmas comedy-classic-in-the-making this is not, but I did manage to chuckle a few times here and there and I did genuinely enjoy seeing Mel Gibson generally being a dick, otherwise it’s an unmemorable film.

The Singing Detective is a bit jarring in its presentation yet there’s some fine moments especially with the performance from Robert Downey Jr. and to some extent Mel Gibson if only for the weird hairpiece and make-up which was more distracting than anything. The Blu-ray release by Olive is decent enough I guess but there were some minor issues with the video while the audio is better than expected. That said, for the money it’s a bit much.

The Expendables 3 continues a franchise that had more promise than delivering the goods, but still this wasn’t a terrible film, just underwhelming and at times a tad dull. I still enjoyed seeing these 1980s action stars together so it’s not a complete waste of time, but at best this is only a rental.

Even though the sequel isn’t any good, Pocahontas is one of Disney’s better modern standard animated features. The songs are memorable, the voice talents solid especially Irene Bedard as the title character. The animation is also strong and colorful with wonderful touches to give it a unique touch. The Blu-ray offers up some average features but excels in the audio/video department.

Ransom is a well made crime-thriller propelled by some great performances from Mel Gibson and Rene Russo and the story never gets old or is overly complicated and instead plays it straight as a thrilling cat-and-mouse game. The Blu-ray has some OK features while the audio/video transfers are adequate and are worth and upgrade for the right price.

This Lethal Weapon Collection is a must for any fan. The picture and audio transfers for each film, while vary in terms of quality, are far better than their DVD counterparts. The features are also well done including four new featurettes totaling 105-minutes giving insights into the entire franchise with new interviews with members of the cast and crew.
