Shorts! Blu-ray Reviews Done Quickly (Last Action Hero 4K Blu-ray, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot Blu-ray, Almost Famous 4K Blu-ray)

We take a look at three recent home video releases: One is a notorious flop from a tried and true action star, one is thought to be a flop by a tried and true action star, but wasn't, and the last is a from the heart coming of age story about a kid who just wants to write about music. 

The Trailer Park: Snake Eyes (1998)

I want to get this out of the way before anything else: Snake Eyes is not a good film. There are many good to great things about Snake Eyes, but taken on its own merit, Snake Eyes just does do much with what it is given.

The film opens with a "oner" that takes us to everywhere we are going to go to throughout the film and also introduces us to the characters as well. This shot is so impressive that the film can not live up to it. The film settles into a standard thriller arch that we don't really care about.

The film is impressive technically. Brian DePalma has been making films like this for decades and knows how to string us along. This trailer sold me on the film, but I found myself bored and uninterested. Give the trailer a watch and decide.
