It's overlong (but at least an hour, and the total runtime is less than two), but Johnny Depp diehards might appreciate the modest chuckles sprinkled throughout this box office disaster.

A comprehensive new box set sums up the musical career of a blues artist who influenced many performers.

Blu-ray Review: Fifty Shades of Grey (Unrated Edition)
