The seventh movie in the "Transformers" franchise tops the DVD releases for the week of Oct. 10

"Transformers: Rise of the Beasts": Set in 1994, two kids from Brooklyn team up with the Autobots and the Maximals to stop Unicron from destroying the planet.

"You know what’s not bad? 'Transformers: Rise of the Beasts,'" writes Chicago Tribune film critic Michael Phillips in his review. "Dumber than a box of lug nuts, but superior to the Michael Bay-directed schlocktaculars that ran as long as 165 minutes. The new 'Transformers' movie clocks in at 117 minutes, a lot of them pretty zippy."


"The Boogeyman": Sophie Thatcher and Vivien Lyra Blair star as sisters traumatized by the recent death of their mother in director Rob Savage's adaptation of Stephen King's 1973 short story.

"Strays": Will Ferrell and Jamie Foxx voice dogs in this definitely not for kids, live-action R-rated comedy.


"Jules": Ben Kingsley plays a lonely older man who has an alien crash in his backyard in this gentle sci-fi dramedy.

"Fatal Attraction: Season One": Lizzy Caplan and Joshua Jackson steam things up in this new Paramount+ drama based on Adrian Lyne’s 1987 erotic thriller.

"King of Killers": The hunters become the hunted in this action thriller about assassins hired to terminate the world's most lethal killer.

"The Mayor of Kingstown: Season Two": This Michigan-set Paramount+ crime drama starring Jeremy Renner and Dianne Wiest returns for Season 2.
