As you can see, this week in new DVD and Blu-rays coming out 11-4-14 has an Angelina Jolie movie where she plays a witch, in Maleficent. IMDb users liked this flick, giving it a 7 out of 10.
Planes is a great little family flick, but the animated feature floundered with IMDb users, getting only a 5.8! But if the kids like it, so be it. Right? And with some holidays bearing no family fun features, sometimes you have to take what you can get.
Hercules, starring Dwayne (all muscle) Johnson, mustered a 6+ on IMDb and I wanted to see it while it was in theaters, the marketing missed its mark with me and I let it slide. I knew I could save money as a consumer and be patient and wait for it to come to the rental market… or even TV if I’m really that patient.
HBOs Newsroom, starring Jeff Daniels, was a favorite of mine. I have never seen Jeff Daniels like this as he delivered a hard hitting news reporter with all kinds of issues of his own. IMDb users agreed with me, scoring it with an 8.5 out of 10. Food for thought.
