The “Robot Chicken: DC Comics Special” is just as funny as the show itself and for fan of DC Comics, it’s a hoot to watch. While not all the jokes land, the majority do and alongside some decent talent lending their voices, even if a few are unrecognizable (like Alfred Molina). The Blu-ray released by Warner Home Video/Adult Swim offers good audio/video transfers and a good selection of special features.
As you might imagine, stoner comedies might not be everybody’s bag of weed but even on that level I’m not sure if A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas really works mainly because a fair number of jokes were made because of 3D which is non-existent in the 2D version (and when the joke is made, it just comes off as unfunny or lame). Even so, there are moments where I chuckled and seeing the two stars back together is at least worth a rental.
The Smurfs is certainly not a very good movie but it did provide a few laughs – which is more than I can say about The Hangover Part II – and the animation, while nothing special, is still decent enough. The Blu-ray offers up a fair amount of features (albeit EPK-like in substance) but the audio and video both are excellent.
Beastly is a bad movie, of course “I’ve seen worse.” It’s a film that never quite comes together with a laughable story and one-dimensional characters which seem to come straight from a WB television series. The female teen audience I’m sure will eat every bit of this up, for anybody older though, it’s a meandering tale and a film that was only made to cash in on the Twilight craze.
