Gothic was released in 1986 but might as well have been filmed in the ‘60s with its psychedelic-like filmmaking style which some might find a lot of fun, but I felt was more confusing and even tedious. The performances at least weren’t bad headlined by Natasha Richardson along with respectable production design.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a solid entry into the franchise, the first of the five from Mike Newell, and does a decent job balancing the dark elements with some brighter scenery, a departure from Alfonso Cuarón’s Prisoner of Azakban.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is perhaps one of my favorites of the series and kind of a shame director Alfonso Cuaron didn’t return to do more of these and it was a nice, and necessary, change-up as Harry’s storyline advances to darker territories.

Alice Through the Looking Glass is a messy movie that, as the box office showed, never should’ve been made. The actors seemed uninterested and probably were in it to make a few (million) bucks, Depp especially, but beyond that, it’s such a thin story.

In Rock Star, I can respect Mark Wahlberg’s performance, and some of those in the supporting cast like Timothy Olymphant and Jason Flemyng, but it’s a clichéd drama that never quite hit the, ahem, right high notes to make for an engaging drama. The Blu-ray released by Warner has some thin special features while the video/audio transfers are at least sufficient.

Upside Down threw away so much potential that it could have been a cult classic but instead we get a jumbled screenplay and finished product that seems to be missing some key scenes. It also doesn’t help that our two protagonists are barely together early on making Adam’s journey so hard to follow because it’s not immediately obvious why he is so enamored with her.

Wake Wood certainly has the creepy factor going for it and yet towards the end, it devolves into typical horror clichés. The acting at least is believable especially from Aidan Gillen and Eva Birthistle and the production design, for an independent film, looks good. The Blu-ray is pretty much a disappointment, save for the audio but if you can get this on the cheap and you enjoy supernatural horror, then it might be worth it.
