This is the no-brainer purchase of the fall, complete with a full remaster of “Raiders Of The Lost Ark” and new hi-def transfers of “Temple Of Doom” and “The Last Crusade.” Of course, you’ll also be taking on a copy of 2008’s “Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull,” but it’s a small price to pay for getting the original trilogy in all its 1080p glory. There are also a plethora of extras, some new and some vintage. If you have any patience, the price is sure to go down during the Holidays. If you’re looking to save a few bucks, keep an eye out the week of Thanksgiving.

The best concert films and rock documentaries often reveal harsh truths about their subjects, no matter how intriguing or uncomfortable. Works in this genre can be rollercoasters of bliss and sadness and awkwardness and pain. “Katy Perry: Part Of Me” plays more like an infomercial. “Gimme Shelter” it is not. Katy Perry’s music is undeniably enjoyable for fans of pop music (myself included), but “Part Of Me” is not enlightening in the least and completely fails to allow its audience inside the music or the mind of the artist behind it. Perry’s obsession with sweets is one of her trademarks, but her big screen debut is less like the cotton candy featured on the cover of “Teenage Dream” and more like a Milk Dud. Emphasis on the word “dud.”

Rating: ★★ out of ★★★★★ (Not So Good)

In the scenes that feel like a Broken Lizard movie, in which Heffernan, Chandrasekhar, and Faxon are allowed to run wild, things work more often than not. There’s an unpredictability to their dialogue and when the film feels like it might go off the rails, it’s at its best. But these hijinks only make up about a third of the film. It’s completely disappointing that so much of the film is devoted to a paper-thin lead character played by an actor with little personality, and while Munn delivers a decent lead performance, the weak script and lackadaisical direction prove insurmountable. Even if you’re not a Broken Lizard fan, you’d be hard-pressed to argue that “The Babymakers” is the best its members are capable of.

Rating: ★★ out of ★★★★★ (Not So Good)
