Blu-ray Review: The Kitchen (2019)
Not sure went wrong here. Oscar-nominated screenwriter making her directorial debut. Cult fave comic miniseries as source material. Three great stars - Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss - headlining. Blu-ray Review: 10 Minutes Gone
A heist thriller with two marquee names but not enough thrills. Bruce Willis is really a supporting player here to Michael Chiklis. Should've been more interesting. Holiday Gift Alert! Now on DVD: Barry: The Complete First Season
Double Emmy winner (for star/writer/director/creator Bill Hader and co-star Henry Winkler) this HBO Original Series is funny and quirky. Available Now on Blu-ray: Strike Back: The Complete Fifth Season
Ten episodes that look and sound great on HBO Home Entertainment's new three-disc Blu-ray set. Now on Blu-ray: Peter Pan - The Signature Collection Anniversary Edition
The 1953 beloved Disney animated classic is back in print - outfitted with some new bonus materials too.
