U Turn is not one of Oliver Stone’s strongest films, although it is one of my favorite of his (taking into consideration I’ve never been a big fan of his), but features a great cast and fantastic performances by Sean Penn and Jennifer Lopez. The Blu-ray distributed by Twilight Time might be limited in features but the video and audio transfers might make it a worthwhile purchase, though as usual, it’s not a cheap release.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For not only is a movie a few years too late, the narrative isn’t quite as strong as the first and the acting, save for a few of the key players, isn’t all that memorable, though Rourke, under seemingly heavier does of make-up, is the biggest highlight with Eva Green taking a close second for her performance and… ahem… assets.
“Nashville” is not my cup of tea when it comes to music as I’m not much of a country music fan, however, the drama is engrossing and the performances are well done headlined by Connie Britton who really shined on “Friday Night Lights” and continues to do so in this series. The 5-disc DVD set has solid audio and video but the features are lacking yet if you enjoy the show, its well worth picking up.
