Blu-ray Review: The Meg

It's a killer shark movie with spectacular effects and Jason Statham leading an ensemble cast that includes Rainn Wilson (Dwight in 'The Office'). The ingredients are all there for a cheesy good time and 'The Meg' delivers.

Blu-ray Review: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

This sequel has visual and sonic pizzazz up the yin-yang, but without Meryl Streep it's lacking an irreplaceable element the original had (no offense to her "replacement," Lily James, a strong actress in other roles).

Blu-ray Review: Sorry To Bother You

Uneven, amateurish directorial debut by Boots Riley boasts some startling ideas and an welcome sense of adventure.
