    • Bad Santa 2's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack is fine, much like the video in that it's stable but a bit unremarkable. Music is satisfyingly spacious and clear, spreading along the front with...

    • ‘Bad Santa 2’ corrupts your home theater with an English DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix that lacks the same punch and attitude as the movie itself. Right off the bat, it is a tad bit disappointing that we don’t get...

    • Thurman Then & Now (HD 2:27) - A look at how Thurman has grown, or not grown, since we last saw him and how Brett approaches the roll. An interesting fact is that he had gotten into shape before the production,...

    • It feel like every movie gets a sequel these days; it doesn’t even seem like the original needs to be profitable to get that chance. However, sometimes actors or directors can smell the stench of a trashy...

    • ‘Bad Santa 2’ left me thinking a lot about my experience, only for all the wrong reasons. Being a fan of the yearly Marvel films and all big budget action, I have always stated how important it is to have...
