Blu-ray Review: Trading Paint

Now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital from Lionsgate Home Entertainment is the racing drama Trading Paint ($22.98; R; 87 minutes). Directed by Karzan Kader, the film stars John Travolta, Toby Sebastian, Shania Twain, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, Michael Madsen, and Kevin Dunn. There are no special features or bonus extras.

The film mostly centers around the estranged relationship between the dirt racing father and son duo, Sam and Cam (played by John Travolta and Toby Sebastian). Sam is a former dirt racer who's a big racing legend in his hometown. His racing rival is Linsky (played by Michael Madsen), a local car dealer owner, who convinces Cam to join his racing team.

Devastated (and mostly pissed off), Sam puts himself back into the driver seat to race against his son and find a way to mend their broken relationship.

Blu-ray Review: John Travolta: 4 in 1 Collection

Mill Creek Entertainment; Amazon

What every happened to John Travolta?

The last movie I saw the actor star in a movie was the comedy Wild Hogs and it wasn't very good. Nevertheless, most of his films are now available on Blu-ray, including Perfect, Basic, A Love Song For Bobby Long, and Lonely Hearts which were recently released on a two-disc 4 in 1 Collection set ($14.98) from Mill Creek Entertainment.

Perfect (1985; R; 120 minutes) - Directed by James Bridges, the romantic drama centered on Rolling Stone magazine reporter Adam Lawrence (played by John Travolta) traveling to Los Angeles to write an article about "single bars of the '80s," which leads him to investigate a popular health club. This is where he meets workout instructor Jessie Wilson (played by Jamie Lee Curtis). There's an instant connection between them and they quickly fall in love, but their relationship is put to the test when he must stretch the truth for his article.

Basic (2003; R; 99 minutes) - Directed by John McTiernan, John Travolta plays DEA agent Tom Hardy, a former Ranger who teams up with Military Police investigator Captain Julia Osborne (played by Connie Nielsen) to investigate the disappearance of Master Sergeant Nathan West (played by Samuel L. Jackson) and a small group of Army Rangers.

A Love Song For Bobby Long (2004; R; 121 minutes) - Directed by Shainee Gabel and based on the novel Off Magazine Street by Ronald Everett Capps, the drama centers around Purslane Will (played by Scarlett Johansson, a teenager who travels to New Orleans to find two strangers, Bobby Long Played by John Travolta) and Lawson Pines (played by Gabriela Macht), living in her deceased mother's home.

Lonely Hearts (2006; R; 108 minutes) - Directed by Todd Robinson, the film tells the true story of the serial couple Martha Beck and Raymond Fernandez (played by Salma Hayek and Jared Leto). After meeting through a personal ad in a magazine, the couple go on a killing spree; preying on lonely, rich women. Hot in pursuit are homicide detectives Elmer C. Robinson and Charles Hildebrandt (played by James Gandolfini), who are determined to capture them.
