DVD Reviews

Alien: Covenant

As the bar for "Alien" movies continues to get lower and lower, "Alien: Covenant" manages to exceed expectations.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

The nadir of the Guy Ritchie aesthetic, this modern take on the Arthurian legends is a garbage movie that often seems like a random assembly of shots.

Going in Style

Not bad but just unambitious, "Going in Style" pairs up three oldsters to rob a bank, discover some life lessons and have everything turn out fine in the end.


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.
