Although 3 out of the 4 movies in these are, well, utter crap, this Wishmaster Collection is a well done addition to the Vestron Collector’s Series and includes some excellent new bonus material for the first film

Frankenstein is an interesting re-telling of the classic story and features great performances from Xavier Samuel and Carrie-Anne Moss and although there are certainly flaws with the script and a limited budget, it’s well worthwhile watching though it seems like this would be tailored for SyFy.

LEGO Super Heroes: Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom is another fun entry into the LEGO animated line with nice animation and good voice casting making for an all around entertaining flick serving as a good placeholder while we wait for LEGO Batman.

Hatchet II is nothing more than a rehash of the first movie – right down to a few of the kills – and that might’ve been all well and good but it also was missing the dark humor and actors who could pull it off. Although I wasn’t a big fan of the original, I did find parts of it to be what writer/director intended it to be, a call back to old school horror, unfortunately Hatchet II seems to be a call back to the old school unnecessary sequels as well.
