Blu-ray Review: ‘R.I.P.D.’ starring Jeff Bridges & Ryan Reynolds

Peter M. Lenkov's Rest In Peace Department oozes with really fantastic ideas, and that's probably why Universal Pictures wanted to make it into a blockbuster franchise. The problem with the adaptation is that is misfires at almost every plot turn, and never seems to decide if it's going to be dark, funny, or just plain weird.
