Jersey Boys (Blu-Ray)

Adapted from the 2006 Tony Winner for Best Musical, this bittersweet saga dramatizes the rise and fall of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons - one of the key pop groups of the early '60s, responsible for such iconic hits as "Sherry," "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don't Cry." The story opens in New Jersey, where young Francesco Castelluccio (John Lloyd Young) and his buddies face a narrow window of future career options. Their possible paths include show business on one hand and organized crime on the other, embodied by the slightly menacing yet avuncular kingpin, Angelo "Gyp" DeCarlo (Christopher Walken), who runs the neighborhood and keeps an eye on them.

22 Jump Street (Blu-Ray)

By all accounts, 2012's 21 Jump Street should have been a total disaster. Yet by openly acknowledging the absurdity of adapting a TV show that had been off the air for 20 years, and eschewing the angsty melodrama of the original series for hip meta humor, the filmmakers managed to turn out an enjoyably self-aware comedy that benefitted tremendously from the unlikely chemistry between stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. For that reason, it came as no surprise when a sequel was announced shortly after its release.

CELEBRATING 15 YEARS

A decade and a half ago I was sitting in a hotel room in East Lyme, Connecticut waiting for my brother and a few friends. We were going to have a bit of fun gambling at Mohegan Sun casino and I’d left work early and beat them there by a few hours. I had my laptop and didn’t have an internet connection, but had been working on my first web site: DVD Authority.
