With the Hellboy reboot coming out, Lionsgate tries one more time to capitalize on a franchise that didn’t do so well and also serving as an advert. In any case, I did enjoy both of these animated movies and really wish they had continued.
It’s a shame Columbus Circle wasn’t better as it has a good cast and, at its core, at least an interesting premise. Although the script does them no favors, I give a pass to the cast as they seem to struggle through stilted dialogue and contrived situations, especially a finale that flies in the face of what we watched before. Even so, I found this to be passable entertainment and enough for a quick watch on a weekend where there’s nothing else on.
Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the mystery thriller, Columbus Circle starring Selma Blair, Amy Smart, Kevin Pollak, Giovanni Ribisi, Beau Bridges and Jason Lee. Click on the link below or image to the left to check out the features and artwork.
The Family Tree might not be the greatest offbeat indie comedy I’ve come across but the film has its moments. The cast for the most part are fine, albeit there isn’t one actor or actress that particularly standout. The Blu-ray offers up good video and audio transfers while the features are limited.
A Guy Thing has some funny moments and even though the lead is a bit of a douchebag, I still was able to enjoy the film and situations the characters are put in, no matter how inane it tends to be including coincidence upon coincidence. As far as the Blu-ray goes, the video is OK but it is a bit saturated at times and doesn’t look the best while the audio is serviceable though nothing special either.
