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.
Wednesday Jun 2, 2021 00:00 PM ET
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).
Wednesday Jun 2, 2021 55:00 PM ET
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.
Monday May 17, 2021 25:00 PM ET
Horror movie about a violent kid is bolstered by effective lead performances. Andi Matichak (of the newly-revived 'Halloween' films) is a mother desparate to protect her troubled son. Luke David Blumm is split-personality son.
Tuesday May 11, 2021 05:00 PM ET
Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and winner of two (included Best Supporting Actor, Daniel Kaluuya of 'Get Out' fame). Nevermind that co-leads Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield are both visibly too old for the real-life figures they're playing. With acting this strong, it's easily overlooked.
Monday Apr 26, 2021 50:00 AM ET
Several short horror stories tied together by a particularly twisted framing story, this 'Collection' is an oddball combo of whimsy, body horror, and old-school blood and guts.
Monday Apr 5, 2021 40:00 PM ET
Less superhero and more super-silly, director Patty Jenkins (who once had the gall to suggest her first 'Wonder Woman' feature was an "art film") has crafted a monument to inconsequentiality with this overstuffed DC Comics sequel.
Monday Apr 5, 2021 45:00 AM ET
Charlotte Kirk is the star and coscreenwriter of this gritty historical horror-drama, directed by Neil Marshall. This witchhunt-driven story is set in Great Plague-era England.
Thursday Apr 1, 2021 10:00 AM ET
As Warner Bros.'s uneven MonsterVerse rolls out the new 'Gozilla vs. Kong,' the one that kicked it off in 2014 gets an impressive audio/visual upgrade.
Wednesday Mar 31, 2021 15:00 AM ET
A bunch of stars populate this new comedy, led by the always-reliable Allison Janney. But Warner Brothers has ultimately dropped a real turkey with this misguided suburban crime caper.
Monday Mar 22, 2021 05:00 AM ET
An effective dramatic turn by Rainn Wilson highlights this tense, twisty psychological thriller. This received a limited theatrical run in 2020 and it now deserves to find a much larger audience on home video.
Monday Mar 22, 2021 40:00 AM ET
Right in time to coincide with spring training and the impending 2021 MLB season, Shout Factory unleashes the complete, six-game 2020 World Series. Dave Roberts and his Dodgers finally won the biggie, after winning NL Pennants in '17 and...

Friday Mar 12, 2021 25:00 AM ET
It is hard to follow the plot, but this Jackie Chan actioner has enough fun moments to make it effective as a "background" movie. In other words, put it on while you're working on other things and just want something buzzing away in the background.
Sunday Mar 7, 2021 50:00 PM ET
A brand-new beginning for the venerable horror series. You may be thinking, ANOTHER "Wrong Turn?" But this one is probably quite a bit different than you were expecting.
Friday Jan 22, 2021 35:00 PM ET
It's another exorcism-themed horror film, but with a couple pretty neat twists. And a lot of old school gore effects sure to please anyone tired of modern digitized effects.
Wednesday Jan 20, 2021 55:00 AM ET
A baffling tribute/parody of early-'90s era video games, in which a young girl gets trapped inside her favorite game. If that sounds like potential fun, it isn't.
Monday Jan 18, 2021 05:00 AM ET
Rich, upperclass Marquis clashes with poor, lowerclass Ms. Eloise in this tense horror thriller. Omari Hardwick and Loretta Devine headline.
Friday Jan 8, 2021 10:00 PM ET
Post-apocalyptic mayhem has never been so tween-friendly. 'Maze Runner' Dylan O'Brien stars in this routine adventure story.
Sunday Dec 20, 2020 20:00 PM ET
If confusion is your idea of entertainment, than Christopher Nolan's latest mind-bender is right up your alley. A polished production with plenty of panache that amounts to one big, 2.5 hour WTF.
Thursday Dec 17, 2020 50:00 PM ET
A likeable comedy featuring lots of comedians, including Cedric the Entertainer as an imposing club veteran. Jimmy O. Yang (of HBO's 'Silicon Valley') stars as an earnest young comic facing some career growing pains.
Tuesday Dec 15, 2020 35:00 PM ET
Legendary Dodgers' voice Vin Scully narrates this exciting recap of the series that saw Los Angeles win its first championship since 1988.
Sunday Dec 6, 2020 50:00 PM ET
Strong performances by Maggie Q and Luke Hemsworth help make this an interesting exercise in frightening atmosphere. But the twist-laden plots winds up being a non-starter.
Sunday Dec 6, 2020 45:00 PM ET
Some big names turn up for cameos in an otherwise impenetrably muddled mess of a fantasy film.
Tuesday Nov 24, 2020 35:00 PM ET
Paul McCartney returns after 40 years to a completely DIY ethic with this "recorded in rockdown" (mostly) collection of new material. The music gleams with inventive touches and heartfelt sentiments, adding another late-career gem to McCartney's catalog.
Sunday Nov 22, 2020 30:00 PM ET
Sweet-natured and potentially inspiring, this teen romance examines one high school kid's struggle to manage the symptoms of schizophrenia.
Sunday Nov 15, 2020 05:00 PM ET
Weird, experimental telling of the Manson murders, produced and released while the case was still fresh, 1971. It's not for everyone, but the restored B&W cinematography is appealing and the whole thing is just bizarre enough to hold attention.
Sunday Nov 15, 2020 00:00 PM ET
An Aussie sci-fi that trades on familiar time-travel tropes, made watchable by its impressive production design, soaring music, and strong lead performance by X-Men's Kodi Smitt-McPhee.
Monday Oct 26, 2020 00:00 AM ET
Ensemble Thanksgiving-themed rom-com is headlined by Malin Ackerman, Kat Dennings, and Jane Seymour. It's a lightweight outing that some might find amusing.
Tuesday Oct 20, 2020 45:00 PM ET
A intriguing spin on the 'found footage' subgenre, this horror-satire pokes fun at the attention-seeking world of live-streaming social media "influencers." Some of it works, some of it doesn't.
Tuesday Oct 20, 2020 00:00 PM ET
An absorbing and tense psychological horror film, shot in England, featuring 'Game of Thrones' star Maisie Williams at the center of an outstanding ensemble cast.
Monday Oct 19, 2020 45:00 PM ET
Don't be deterred by its premature cancellation - AMC's vampire-ish series NOS4A2 is worth watching (and re-watching). Start with Season One, get hooked, and then proceed to the newly-released Season Two.
Sunday Oct 18, 2020 40:00 PM ET
Another gem from the Stones' live vault, this Lorne Michaels-produced concert was originally a pay-per-view broadcast.
Sunday Oct 4, 2020 35:00 PM ET
"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.
Sunday Sep 27, 2020 35:00 PM ET
Feather-light romantic drama based on self-help piffle. But it's not the worst way to pass an hour and a half, especially if you like Katie Holmes. Or if you read Rhonda Byrne's 2006 best-seller upon which it's based.
Friday Sep 11, 2020 55:00 PM ET
As a showcase for Hugh Jackman's reliable acting skill, this 'Education' is a must-see. But the real-life story has much more depth to mine and ultimately the film adaptation comes up a bit short.
Sunday Aug 2, 2020 20:00 PM ET
Chalk it up to another victory for Paul McCartney with this 13th entry in his long-running Archive Collection. This is one of his finest hours and it deserves this kind of extravagant package. Demos, outtakes, B-sides, video content, and extensive liner notes abound.
Sunday Jul 26, 2020 40:00 PM ET
While this 2018 AMC series is by no means comprehensive, it's an entertaining, casual exploration of key themes that run through many of the most popular and beloved sci-fi films of the last 40 or 50 years.
Wednesday Dec 11, 2019 00:00 PM ET
Alleviate the off-season blues by revisiting the 2019 World Series in this MLB-produced feature-length documentary. A true classic among Fall Classics is recapped neatly.
Wednesday Dec 11, 2019 25:00 PM ET
Nearly everything that made the first chapter so memorable is mostly absent from this overly long, unfocused retread that essentially puts the adult versions of the first film's kids through the same paces.
Thursday Dec 5, 2019 20:00 PM ET
If you celebrated the summer of 2019 with the Stones' 'Bridges to Bremen,' you can plan to ring in 2020 with their newly-released 'Bridges to Buenos Aires.' Taken from the same 1998 tour, but this one has a few neat surprises.
Monday Dec 2, 2019 25:00 PM ET
Gigantic box set that includes 28 feature films and tons of extras, collected on 15 discs. Many of these Bud Abbott and Lou Costello classics make their HD debut here. A vintage comedy collector's dream.
Thursday Nov 21, 2019 20:00 PM ET
Light and frothy, this based-in-truth depiction of one '80s teen's discovery - and embrace - of Bruce Springsteen's music has a few deeper themes below it's feelgood surface that make it worthwhile.
Friday Nov 8, 2019 25:00 PM ET
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.
Sunday Nov 3, 2019 40:00 PM ET
While the bonus tracks aren't as engrossing or revelatory as the previous two superdeluxe Beatles boxes, and the rewriting of history continues with Giles Martin's authorized remixes, there's still plenty to like about this release.
Friday Nov 1, 2019 00:00 PM ET
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.
Tuesday Aug 27, 2019 35:00 PM ET
Another great live concert video and album by The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band, this one comes from near the end of the Bridges to Babylon tour.
Sunday Aug 25, 2019 35:00 PM ET
Carole King fans take note: Eagle Rock has added an important piece of history to the singer-songwriter's legend.
Monday Feb 4, 2019 55:00 PM ET
Funny Kevin Hart vehicle, thanks to a great ensemble cast. Tiffany Haddish downplays to nice effect as a teacher trying to instruct a group of ne'er do wells.
Monday Feb 4, 2019 40:00 PM ET
A direct-to-video dud starring John Travolta. Based loosely on the life of speedboat designer Donald Aronow.
