DVD Reviews


This warmhearted drama with some big names attached isn't terribly original, but it never suffers a false moment.

Kong: Skull Island

It took innumerable tries, but they finally made one that lives up to the legacy of the original with a brash mix of action and humor.

Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer

Richard Gere continues his late career surge in terrific small films playing a would-be power player who stumbles into the big time.

Berlin Syndrome

A tense sexual thriller and psychological study, "Berlin Syndrome" explores the line between passion and fear, which is closer than we'd care to admit.

Trainspotting 2

"Trainspotting 2" made more than double its predecessor at the box office, but is destined to be largely forgotten in popular culture, in much the same way the “Wizard of Oz” sequel was.

The LEGO Batman Movie

“The LEGO Batman Movie” plucks the breakout character from the first movie and gives him his own flick, with gleeful fun for kiddies resulting.

Keanu Reeves reprises his role as badass assassin John Wick in "John Wick: Chapter Two," a 2017 Summit-Lionsgate release directed by Chad Stahelski.

John Wick: Chapter 2

The "John Wick" movies are slick, ultra-violent escapism that mixes a grim revenge saga with gallows humor.

Beauty and the Beast

A well-crafted film, bright and engaging and full of vivid characters that, alas, still has no reason for existing.
