Bad Boys I & II is another bang-bang series from Michael Bay and although I disliked the sequel, the original at least is enjoyable enough. The pairing of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence offers fun chemistry between the two and the action scenes are at least unique in some sense although done to death by Bay himself to the point where you’re not sure if you’re watching Bad Boys or Transformers.
“Madam Secretary” is an entertaining if not flawed series. Where it lacks in writing and plot, it more than makes up with a respectable ensemble cast including the still charming Téa Leoni leading the pack. I can only hope some of the issues get shored up in the second season but as a freshman series, it’s adequate.
Tower Heist has a few issues dealing the plot’s logic but thanks to a fine ensemble cast, I’m able to overlook any of the script’s shortcomings; it gets the job done with both the crime and comedy. The Blu-ray offers up solid video and audio transfers a good amount of features with a better selection than what I’ve seen lately from other studios.
The Jurassic Park: Ultimate Trilogy is far from perfect but with one great film, one entertaining film and another with squandered potential, this is still a worthwhile set to add to anyone’s collection. The features have all been ported over and even include a well-made six-part documentary (which totals 130 minutes in length). The video is a bit disappointing but the audio is excellent.
