Home Again is hardly terrible but also hardly as charming as the filmmakers thought it was in spite of Reese Witherspoon whose talents are hardly taxed. This is at best a rental otherwise it’s a story that should’ve aired on the Hallmark Channel.
The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box is a perfectly suitable family action-adventure though the ending has much to be desired with muddy editing and poor focus. The Blu-ray released by RLJ offers standard audio/video transfers while the solo featurette wasn’t bad. For what it is, it’s not a bad movie and probably worth renting.
The Underworld movies have a loyal following but I’ve never quite got into it save for Kate Beckinsale, her costume design and the all around production design. In regards to this set, it is identical to the one released a couple years back except for a 3-part anime series. If you don’t already own the other set, it’s a cheap pick-up for three movies that have excellent audio and videos transfers and a good selection of features to keep you busy.
Midnight in Paris continues Woody Allen’s string of success across all genres and this latest romantic comedy takes viewers on a travelogue of scenic Paris along with a plethora of well developed characters which will appeal and even relate to most audiences. I give this a solid recommendation.
