New Releases for April 03, 2012

An odd week, only a few decent releases but nothing great.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0072GPQ72″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]War Horse (Four Disc Combo: Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0072GPQ72″ target=”_blank” ]War Horse[/amazon_link] – Somehow this film was based on a Tony Award-winning Broadway play, the film follows the horse Joey as he is separated from his trainer and his journeys during World War I. Seems to be similar to a lot of Spielberg movies as of late. Stars Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson, David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Tom Hiddleston. Rated PG-13.

[amazon_link id=”B004LWZWA6″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]We Bought a Zoo (Blu-ray/ DVD + Digital Copy)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B004LWZWA6″ target=”_blank” ]We Bought a Zoo[/amazon_link] – We Bought a Zoo never did have a clear marketing campaign, but is based off a memoir/true story. Benjamin Mee wants to make a new life for himself and his family after his wife dies, and they decide to move into a new house. This house just happens to be attached to a zoo that they also much manage. This is a drama though some commercials tried to cast it as a comedy. Stars Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, and Colin Ford. Rated PG.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0064NLPV0″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0064NLPV0″ target=”_blank” ]Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey [/amazon_link]- A Sundance Film Festival winner as well as general critic pick, Being Elmo covers the career of Kevin Clash and how he grew up to be Elmo on Sesame Street. Documentary. Rated PG.

 

[amazon_link id=”B006H9NLGS” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Torchwood: Miracle Day [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B006H9NLGS” target=”_blank” ]Torchwood: Miracle Day[/amazon_link] – Torchwood: Miracle Day is the next miniseries for the Doctor Who spin off, now set in United States (and produced by Starz and BBC). Miracle Day is the day that no one in the world dies or from then on. It’s up to the Torchwood team to figure out why. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B006JN87XO” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Regular Show: The Slack Pack[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B006JN87XO” target=”_blank” ]Regular Show: The Slack Pack[/amazon_link] – Cartoon Network continues to flub it up by releasing a random assortment of 12 episodes of Regular Show over the first two seasons. Hopefully CN will come to realize that these type of releases don’t work and do nobody any favors. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B006US3UPS” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B006US3UPS” target=”_blank” ]A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventures[/amazon_link] – I don’t really know much about this film, but voice actor Yuri Lowenthal was in it and promoted it. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0071LEH14″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Black Butler: Complete First Season (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0071LEFY8″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Black Butler II: Complete Collection (Limited Edition, Blu-ray/DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0071LEH14″ target=”_blank” ]Black Butler Season 1[/amazon_link] and [amazon_link id=”B0071LEFY8″ target=”_blank” ]Season 2[/amazon_link] – Funimation releases both seasons of Black Butler out in season sets. It’s an interesting series and has great voice acting. Comes with both Blu-Ray and DVD.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0071LEMQ4″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Okami-san and Her Seven Companions: Complete Collection (Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0071LEMQ4″ target=”_blank” ]Okami-san and Her Seven Companions: Complete Collection[/amazon_link] – I know nothing about this series, but it seems to be vaguely based off of western fairy tales and is also released by Funimation.

 

Video Games

The only release of note is one that I would hope that no one ever buys based on the footage.

 

[amazon_link id=”B002I0HCNI” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Kinect Star Wars[/amazon_link]

 

And please for the love of God, do not get this one valued at over $400! Granted it does come with an X-Box 360 included but this is on principal!

[amazon_link id=”B0050SY300″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Xbox 360 Limited Edition Kinect Star Wars Bundle[/amazon_link]
