Running Time: 114 min.

Recently, word came out that Liam Neeson was retiring from performing in tough guy action movies like Taken and Run All Night. Based on the new film The Foreigner, Jackie Chan is attempting to step in and fill the void. This is a grittier, heavier feature and an...

Running Time: 97 min.

Ever thought Groundhog Day might work better as a horror feature? The filmmakers behind Happy Death Day certainly thought so, even referencing the previous movie and making some jokes along the way as if to acknowledge the noticeable similarities.

However, beyond a few little wrinkles, this feature doesn’t do a great deal with the concept. If anything, it leaves one with the distinct impression that it would have worked far better had it simply embraced the more humorous and absurd aspects of the story.

Welcome back to another look at highlights arriving on Blu-ray and DVD. Once again, there’s a good mix of big studio fare and smaller, independent features. So, if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!
