BeirutBeirut (The Negotiator) (2018)
3 stars (Good Enough) There is a freshness to the casting – not the usual stars toting machine guns. The screenplay is well–written.
DVD $29.95 | Blu-Ray $34.95
LantanaLantana (2001)Recommended
2 stars (Good Try) The screenplay kicks in after an hour and a half and then goes missing again in favour of a crappy ending.
DVD $14.95, $24.95
Matrix Reloaded, TheMatrix Reloaded, The (2002)
2 stars (Good Try) It is a good advert for sunglasses and apart from some worthy special effects, there is not much else. Hugo Weaving and others in support provide some acting and much–needed relief.
DVD $19.95 $14.95 | Blu-Ray $34.95 $24.95
Beautiful CreaturesBeautiful Creatures (2013)
2 stars (Good Try) It is mainly forgettable which is some achievement considering there is Irons, Thompson et al.
DVD $14.95 | Blu-Ray $19.95
Peaky Blinders (TV Series)Peaky Blinders (TV Series) (2013)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) Season 1: Whilst the screenplay is not without a minor blemish or two the set designs are outstanding and make it worthwhile. Helen McCrory is the stand out performer.
DVD $25, $25, $39.95, $39.95
BarbaraBarbara (2012)Aro Favourite
2 stars (Good Try) Nina is fine but the only other worthwhile thing is that the set designs capture the depressive feel and mundaneness of the '80s in East Germany.
Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called QuestBeats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest (2011)
3 stars (Good Enough) It gets less interesting after the group breaks up and the finger pointing starts but worth it overall. There are some great outdoor location shots in the early part of the documentary.
DVD $29.95
Cover GirlCover Girl (1944)
3 stars (Good Enough) Although there was only one memorable tune the dancing made up for it. The non–musical segments stumbled along and needed a bit more of Eve Arden. The Technicolor was beautiful.
Rough Night in JerichoRough Night in Jericho (1967)
2 stars (Good Try) The screenplay is okay without being anything out of the ordinary. The casting of George Peppard and Jean Simmons adds solidity.
DVD $14.95
Chicken PeopleChicken People (2016)
2 stars (Good Try) It is lightly boiled and sometimes informative.
