This week we have some fascinating new releases come at you from the digital halls of home entertainment distribution. Or, um, new DVD and Blu-rays. (Images are links to Amazon)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
First up is the reboot of turtles from Jonathan Liebesman. This was one of the first movies in a long time where I was sort of rooting for the bad guy. The cast includes Megan Fox, which might have been the best part of the movie, along with Will Arnett, and William Fichtner (Who mailed in his performance).
You can see my angst about the movie at this movie review, and know that the elevator jam session from the movie, might have been close to the best scene in it.
I did not catch this film, but would like to soon. It pulled a 7/10 from IMDb users. Directed by Wes Ball and stars Dylan O’Brien, Aml Ameen, Will Poulter and other young victims to a dastardly maze trap.
Cowboy Bebop: The Complete Series
Never saw it. But to be fair, the IU score is 9/10!
Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever
And it could be your worst Christmas too if you drop money on this bad boy DVD. I just happened to watch this flick that came out in late November on Lifetime. (TV review of this cat thing)
It might, MIGHT be a fun kid’s flick, but it might be painful for adults to sit around and watch with them.
IMDb users offered up a 5.5 for the flick. That’s all I’m saying… though I must admit, this release was pretty fast to DVD!
The Americans, Season 2
I do like this show, and I”m surprised that I do. IU score (IMDb Users) gave it an 8.2. This is a very different Keri Russell. ‘Nuff said there.
Peter Pan Live!
Just when I was saying that Grumpy Cat was fast to DVD, didn’t this just air on TV last week or the week before?
Just as a reference, the Allison Williams starrer netted a whopping 5.4 on IMDb.
After this, we have:
Arrested Development: Season 4 DVD
Magic in the Moonlight
Tootsie on Blu-ray,
The Guilt Trip digital release, (IU: 5.8)
Lord Of Illusions
Bleach Uncut Set 23
Extant: Season 1 (Very short-lived show… )
