The DC cinematic universe continues to be a roller coaster ride, with dizzying highs and head-smacking lows. "Aquaman," thanks to astounding visuals, a funny and entertaining script and a confident star turn by Jason Momoa, joins "Wonder Woman" at the top of the list. Somehow director James Wan's film manages to make the traditionally dorky and useless superhero seem like a formidable force. For my full review, click here. Extras include a slew of making-of featurettes, an exclusive "Shazam!" preview and character breakdowns.

Second Act

Jennifer Lopez plays a struggling middle-aged woman who loses her job and relationship in short order, and uses the opportunity to chase her business executive dreams -- even if it takes lying about her resume to get there. The romantic comedy benefits from inspiring moments, an impressive star turn by Lopez and excellent supporting performances from Leah Remini, Vanessa Hudgens and Milo Ventimiglia. Extras include spotlights on the chemistry between Lopez and Ventimiglia, as well as Lopez and Remini.


Barbara Loden writes, directs and stars in this underground 1970 film about a woman who leaves her husband and loses custody of her children. She finds herself floating from one precarious situation to the next, alone and without support as she's exploited by an uncaring society. The film gets a fresh 2K transfer for the Criterion release, a making-of documentary and 1971 audio interview with Loden.
