Music Reviews: A Must-see Concert Blu-ray from Little Steven, Plus Joan Armatrading

Stevie Van Zandt and his stupendous band shine in a new video release.

Blu-ray Review: A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II - Two-Movie Collection

The excellent 'A Quiet Place' sequel is available on its own, but if you passed on adding the 2018 original to your collection, now is the time to grab this great twofer.

Blu-ray Review: Wrath of Man

Jason Statham stars in a high-adrenaline heist thriller directed by Guy Ritchie.

4K UltraHD Blu-ray Review: Space Jam

The Michael Jordan live-action/animated hybrid from 1996 gets a visual upgrade to coincide with the release of the long-overdue sequel.

Music Reviews: George Harrison’s ‘All Things Must Pass’ (50th Anniversary Edition), Plus the Gun Club’s ‘Fire of Love’ (Deluxe Edition)

The "quiet Beatle" makes a loud splash with his first major solo album. Also, an expanded edition of a 1981 punk/blues standout.

Music Reviews: Rolling Stones’ ‘Live on Copacabana Beach,’ Plus Steve Dawson and John R. Miller

A rock concert for one and a half million fans and two more noteworthy releases.

Blu-ray Review: Godzilla vs. Kong

Another entry in the Legacy/Warner Bros. MonsterVerse, a series plagued by uninteresting, F/X-heavy productions. The return of Kong might've signaled a return to the funny, inventive 'Skull Island.' But it's just more nonsense like 'King of the Monsters.'

Music Reviews: Van Morrison’s ‘Latest Record Project,’ Plus Our Band and Laura Nyro

The great Irish singer's new set is less than great. Also, an excellent new folk/pop duo and a live set reminds us that the late Laura Nyro could sing 'em as well as she could write 'em.

Blu-ray Review: Here Are the Young Men

Messy, frustrating film about three recent high school grads and the trouble they get up to. But thanks to a fascinating turn by Finn Cole, well worth checking out.

Music Reviews: An Expanded Edition of the Grateful Dead’s ‘Skull & Roses’ LP, plus Crowded House and Reigning Sound

An anniversary edition of the Dead's second album, Crowded House return after a decade, and an excellent CD from Reigning SOund.

Blu-ray Review: Voyagers - (2021)

Taking a few obvious cues from 'Lord of the Flies,' this outer-space teen drama boasts impressive production values but suffers from undeveloped ideas at its core.

Music Reviews: Leo Sayer, Wanderlust, Jack Grace Band, Dana Sipos, and a Tribute to an NRBQ Cofounder

Revisiting a British pop star's heyday, a multi-artist hat tip to NRBQ's Joey Spampinato, and more new releases.

Music Reviews: An Alligator Records Anthology and Tim Buckley Live plus Johnny Ace and the Four Tunes

An independent blues label showcases highlights from its first half-century. Also, a live set from the late, great Tim Buckley and anthologies from two early vocal acts.

Blu-ray Review: City of Lies

Johnny Depp and Forest Whitaker star in the disjointed, and long-delayed, true crime drama about the alleged involvement of the LAPD in the deaths of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.

Music Reviews: Frank Zappa’s Final U.S. Concert, plus Ashley Riley, Richard X. Heyman, Raoul Vignal, and Nefesh Mountain

A previously unreleased live set from Zappa, one of rock's most versatile and idiosyncratic performers. Also: Ashley Riley's gorgeous CD and more new releases.

Music Reviews: The Merseybeats and Merseys, plus Diana Jones and Eddie 9-Volt

A British Invasion-era group that never actually invaded. Plus, a song cycle inspired by the immigrant crisis and a potent shot of soul.

Music Reviews: Lulu, Plus Shannon McNally, Beth Whitney, and Ben Brown

An American one-hit wonder who has had a long and notable career in the U.K., plus an album of Waylon Jennings covers and more.

Blu-ray Review: Shoplifters of the World

It's 1987 and The Smiths have just announced their breakup. Pretentious proclamations ensue as a group of teen Smiths megafans explain what the band meant to them (and why you have no taste if you listen to anything else but The Smiths).

Blu-ray Review: Spare Parts - (2021)

It's a low-budget horror flick with no stars and a lot of gore. All-female punk band finds themselves fighting for their lives after falling victim to forcible body modification of the most extreme kind.

Music Reviews: Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young’s ‘Déjà Vu’ (Deluxe Edition), Plus Rob Lutes, Greta Gaines, and Rod Picott

An expanded edition of a CSNY classic offers an opportunity to reappraise it, see how it came together, and pick through some of the considered material that didn't wind up on the original release. Plus, three more noteworthy new albums.

"If you can't trust your mind, trust your heart," as the teen romance story arrives on Digital on November 10 and Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand a week later. Directed by Thor Freudenthal. 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
