The Fabulous Baker Boys is one of the more forgotten classics from writer/director Steve Kloves (mainly known as a writer now) that finally gets some recognition courtesy of Twilight Time’s release on Blu-ray. As for the release, the audio and video transfers are both well done and there’s a decent selection of bonus material toplined by a new commentary with Kloves.
Small Time is an easygoing but still well made drama-comedy with great performances all around, but in particular Christopher Meloni, in his post-“Law & Order: SVU” career and Dean Norris of “Breaking Bad” fame having a good time. The Blu-ray released by Anchor Bay has good video and audio transfers but with only a commentary, albeit a decent one, it’s not exactly an amazing release.
“Nikita” The Complete First Season is one hell of a ride. There’s plenty of kick ass action by a sexy lead actress, some decent writing, interesting storylines and adequate to good acting from the main cast. The Blu-ray has some expansive features (more so than most TV series get today), sharp-looking video and lossless audio which, while it won’t knock your socks off, still sounds great.
