The Vanished is a new mystery-thriller from Paramount starring Thomas Jane, Anne Heche, Jason Patric and Peter Facinelli who also wrote and directed. The DVD is available for purchase on October 20th.
If Gangster Land isn’t enough of a lackluster title, the movie is equally uninspiring gangster film that features some recognizable actors but none are exactly believable in their respective roles not to mention some questionable accents. This is just one of hundreds of direct-to-video films that will get lost in the shuffle.
“Supergirl”: The Complete First Season has its issues, especially early on, yet as the season wore on, the writing got better, particularly the dialogue. But from beginning to end, the casting was pitch perfect starting with Melissa Benoist who is both beautiful and charismatic to pull off a character like Supergirl/Kara.
The final season of “Nurse Jackie” culminates a solid series for Showtime and allows for Edie Falco to carry the show and remind just how strong of an actress she is dating back to “The Sopranos”. The show itself has never been a favorite of mine or anything but it’s entertaining enough. The Blu-ray released by Lionsgate is fine and includes excellent video and audio transfers and a adequate selection of bonus material.
Supernova is somewhat of a controversial sci-fi thriller, some who stand by it while others trash it; for myself, there is some good to the film yet it never quite hits its stride and kind of loses its way by the final act. That said, it’s worth a watch if only for curiosity’s sake (plus Tunney looks mighty good).
