Despicable Me 3 is a perfectly ‘fine’ CGI animated movie, though there’s nothing here that particularly stands out, but thanks to the Minions storyline and the scenes with Balthazar Bratt, I did manage to chuckle a few times.
The Intruders actually isn’t a terrible movie but it should be noted that the target audience in all likelihood is the ‘tween demographic. As a PG-13 flick, it’s pretty light with the bulk of the rating being for “scary” images but remove a couple swear words, this could easily air on LMN or ABC Family with minimal edits. Miranda Cosgrove is decent as a lead actress however she’s not given much to work with.
School of Rock was never one of my favorites to come out – and the story itself might be on the clichéd and predictable side – in 2003 but for music enthusiasts, and fans of Jack Black and Richard Linklater, it might hit the right note. The Blu-ray ports over all the features from the DVD while the video and audio transfers are adequate/good.
The “I <3 iCarly Collection” isn’t anything special as it just contains the previously released DVDs of “iFight Shelby Marx”, “iSaved Your Life” and “iSpace Out”. The features are the same, the audio and video is the same so unless you don’t already own these, in which case you can get them at a decent price (though I still recommend the season volume sets), then you can pass this on by.
I know ‘iCarly” isn’t for everybody as some might find the humor too light-hearted and innocent but I for one don’t mind it. This third volume of season two is a good selection of episodes, and five more episodes/specials than the volume two DVD. The features are still much to be desired while the video is cropped from the 16×9 HD master.
