New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 10/3

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES | © 2017 Disney Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES Supposedly this is the last film in the franchise, the fifth film based on a freaking amusement park ride in Disneyland. Don’t get me wrong, these films have been fun from the get-go but after five of them, it has become a little long-in-the-tooth to see Captain Jack Sparrow continually get into trouble, fumble his way through problems for two hours only to have it all work out in the end. This time Sparrow must once again deal […]Read On »

New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 9/17

WONDER WOMAN | © 2017 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. WONDER WOMAN Regardless of how you feeling about the DC Cinematic Universe, it is easy to say that getting a franchise off the ground has not been an easy thing to accomplish. Now whose fault that is a whole other story whether it is the big Whigs from Warner Bros, Zach Snyder, or a combination of the two. Luckily, they got it right with WONDER WOMAN, a true origin story that does a good job of mixing classic Diana Amazonian roots with storyline that helps move the […]Read On »

CHIPS highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for June 27, 2017

CHIPS | © 2017 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. CHiPS When I saw the original trailer for the CHiPS movie I thought it looked OK and it might have some funny moments but I thought about how many people actually will get the actual references to the classic television show. There’s an entire generation that has no clue about Ponch and Jon. So it already had some issues with people knowing what this was about. It showed as it didn’t perform well in the theaters. In the movie version, Ponch is an undercover federal agent investigating […]Read On »

THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for June 13, 2017

THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE | © 2017 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE The DC Cinematic Universe has had a hard time getting its footing in the theater (and WONDER WOMAN will only help in this regard) but the animated universe from DC has been killing it for many years. And if you combine animation with LEGOs and Batman, that’s a recipe for success before anything has been filmed. And not surprisingly it is a fun time with numerous jokes and gags that go beyond just children. Of course, there is plenty here for them as […]Read On »

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for June 6, 2017

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST | © 2017 Disney Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST While Disney continues to make a killing with its Marvel franchise and its Star Wars franchise, it continues to make money hand over fist with these live action adaptations from classic animated titles. Here Emma Watson plays the title character of Belle, who agrees to be the captive of the gnarly beast when her father gets in trouble. Unlike some of the other live action flicks, this one keeps the storyline pretty close to the original including creepy CGI candlesticks, tea cups […]Read On »

HEAT: DIRECTOR’S DEFINITION EDITION highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for May 9, 2017

HEAT | © 2017 Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week (or perhaps a week ago). HEAT: DIRECTOR’S DEFINITIVE EDITION There are a few movies that just do it for me. RONIN is one because I love the mash-up for characters all doing shady dealings in Europe. HEAT is one of Michael Mann’s best work because it has multiple players doing a variety of heinous crimes and brings together two actors that were (at the time) the top of their game in Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. Now, how both of these actors perform today is an […]Read On »

TROLLS | © 2017 Fox Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. TROLLS – Why adults may not be excited about TROLLS, kids will love it. There’s a lot to like if you are kid. Lots of singing and dancing. Lots of catchy songs. A crazy simplistic plot involving an invading bad guys and a number of trolls having to save their friends is enough to drive you crazy but kids will be easy to follow along making it fun for them. Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick star so at least the singing is actually done by people who […]Read On »

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN | © 2017 Universal Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN – They don’t make movies like this much anymore in Hollywood. A straight thriller that’s R rated featuring lots of adult themes, nudity and sex. Of course, death, mystery and twists are also in the mix. In previous decades, movies like this were common like FATAL ATTRACTION, THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE, THE AFFAIR and many more. THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN is all about smoke and mirrors, building a case that someone has committed a brutal murder without having all […]Read On »

DEEPWATER HORIZON highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Jan. 10, 2017

DEEPWATER HORIZON | © 2017 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

  Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. DEEPWATER HORIZON – A pretty good action thriller about the well-publicized explosion that happened on a deep sea oil rig known as Deepwater Horizon. Led by an impressive cast including Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich and Kurt Russell, it does a good job of balancing the action with how the oil companies treat their employees and their property and how it really is about the bottom line. But it also does a good job of tackling the human spirit and how people can do incredible things and […]Read On »
