Batman Forever certainly was a change-up for the franchise after the very dark turn in Batman Returns and to say it’s a 180 is putting it lightly. Although I acknowledge it’s not good, I do have an affinity for the movie due to nostalgia.

Aquaman is an outrageously fun superhero movie that might not break new ground in terms of story, it does introduce audiences to a relatively unexplored world. Jason Momoa was the perfect casting of a character that was once a joke.

As a fan of Sofia Coppola, I was disappointed with The Beguiled, a film with paper-thin characters and a rather dull and trite plot that leads to an ineffectual finale. That said, I will give it some points for Farrell and Kidman’s performances and what production design I could see was well done.

Queen of the Desert is a finely acted, especially on the part of Nicole Kidman, film about an important time in the Middle East, however it is slow plodding and can be trying to sit through, so I can’t really recommend this sadly.

Secret in Their Eyes is a decent if not horribly disappointing movie considering the amazing cast. Although the three main actors turn in perfectly fine performances, with Chiwetel Ejiofor being the best of the trio exuding enough charm to overcome story and editing issues, this is not a film that has much if any replay value and is at best a Saturday night rental, nothing more.

Grace of Monaco might’ve been well meaning and the production and costume designs are well done and the performance by Nicole Kidman wasn’t bad but it’s easy to see why it failed to go to theaters and instead aired on Lifetime instead. However, when a movie opens with “the following film is a fictional account inspired by real events,” you’re already behind the eight ball.

The Railway Man is a well made movie but its main success is with yet another fine performance from Colin Firth who steals the show although Nicole Kidman gets some good scenes as well. The Blu-ray released by Anchor Bay offers up solid video and audio transfers while the bonus material is pretty basic.

Trespass is the sort of the film that, from afar, had potential but upon closer inspection is just perplexing. The character’s actions make little sense, the criminals’ activities/motivations seemed to come from a rejected episode of “Criminal Minds” and the acting ranges from sleepwalking (Kidman) to just odd (unsurprisingly Cage). It’s not a bad film by any stretch as the direction at least makes it look good but the screenplay needed work.

The Peacemaker has all earmarks of a generic mid/late ‘90s action-thriller and is only remembered thanks to the then up-and-coming star in George Clooney and the beauty of Nicole Kidman otherwise this could’ve easily been just another direct-to-video affair. The Blu-ray itself has a nice enough, though unimpressive, video transfer while the audio is also suitable with some good depth during the action scenes but the dialogue levels could’ve been better.
