Leatherface is yet another, at best, disappointing entry into the vaunted Texas Chain Saw franchise, one where probably for the first two and, for me, the remake, were any good, the others not so much and I’d include this one but more for how forgettable it was than outright bad.

S.F.W. is certainly an odd ball of a crime-drama with frenetic editing and direction to go along with the story while the performances are mostly good headlined by Stephen Dorff with special mention going to Jake Busey channeling his crazy father. As for the Blu-ray, there’s only a trailer while the video and audio transfers are decent enough.

The Motel Life is a somber but well acted drama headlined by Emile Hirsch and Stephen Dorff who both work well together playing brothers.

Cold Creek Manor wasn’t as awful as it’s been portrayed over the years but in no way is it very good either.

The Blu-ray at least offers above average video and OK audio.

Immortals actually isn’t too bad of a movie. It’s got some good action scenes, the style director Tarsem employs is at least a little different from those that have come before and the acting is fairly adequate as well. The Blu-ray offers up some decent features and the audio and video transfers are both excellent.

It’s rare to come upon a movie that’s so obnoxious and worse, void of laughs but Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star does it so damn well. The character seems to be a cast off of from “Saturday Night Live” and the entire movie is just one misstep after another. I can’t give Swardson too much crap outside the fact he did have his hand in writing, but otherwise this is a definite skip.
