(Dark Shadows – Warner Brothers – Rated PG-13)
Usually, the Tim Burton / Johnny Depp collaborations are terrific…usually, but not with Dark Shadows. It's campy, silly and odd…in a bad way. But its biggest sin, is it is downright boring. My eyelids felt challenged to stay open. Bonus features include deleted scenes and a featurette. The blu-ray adds 8 featurettes.
(Bonanza the Official Fourth Season – Paramount – Not Rated)
The fourth season of the legendary western series, Bonanza comes to DVD with 34 episodes on 9 discs…and it includes the original music. Bonus features include commentaries, original program elements and more.
(People Like Us - Dreamworks - Rated PG-13)
People Like Us features some nice performances in a film that is based on a true story. It's a little long and a bit too melodramatic, but it kept me involved. Extras include commentaries. The blu-ray adds a commentary, two featurettes, bloopers and deleted scenes.
(Annie – Sony – Rated PG)
The delightful musical, Annie is now 30 years old, and comes to Blu-ray in a 30th anniversary sing along edition. Bonus features include a sing along, a featurette and more.
