Chicago – Blu-ray allows for an interesting reassessment of perceived failures as titles that haven’t been available on the next-gen format hit HD for the first time and one can see if perhaps history has been kinder to a near-miss than critics were upon its release. When I heard that “54” and the director’s cut of “Reindeer Games” were hitting Blu-ray (one can only assume the latter is tied to the collector’s edition of Ben Affleck’s “The Town” that hit last week), I wondered if their reputations as disasters were unearned and looked forward to reappreciations. They’re both still a mess.

On paper, “54” seemed like Such a good idea. Take hot stars — Salma Hayek, Neve Campbell, Ryan Phillippe — and put them in a story about one of the hottest places at the hottest times in club history. Then why is “54” so cold? It’s just not sexy »
