DVD/Blu-Ray

Movies

Muppets Most Wanted (Blu-ray)

Muppets Most Wanted – Muppets Most Wanted seems to be very similar to to the The Great Muppet Caper but with a twist (I think that’s a good thing). After the Muppet movie, the Muppets go on tour around the world. However when the evil Constantine, the world’s biggest criminal and Kermit lookalike, escapes and trades places with Kermit. The Muppets end up helping Constantine commit crimes and Kermit is stuck in jail. We’re really looking forward to the movie and we loved the first one. Almost no Muppet movie can go wrong. And just like all Muppet movies, the movie is full of cameos which would make having the entire cast list on here much too long. Check out our review of the movie. Stars Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, and Tina Fey. Rated PG.

 

A Haunted House 2 (Blu-ray + DVD + DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet)

A Haunted House 2 – Since they no longer have control of the Scary Movie franchise, the Wayan’s got involved in A Haunted House as a new horror movie spoof franchise. In A Haunted House 2, the main character’s girlfriend is killed in a car crash and he moves on trying to get a fresh start thanks to a new girlfriend and her two kids. But of course things don’t go as well as planned when the new house is haunted and his once dead girlfriend moves in next door. Stars Marlon Wayans, Jaime Pressly, Essence Atkins, Gabriel Iglesias, and Cedric the Entertainer. Rated R.

 

Locke [Blu-ray]

Locke – A movie starring Tom Hardy (of Inception, Dark Knight Rises) and only Tom Hardy. Ivan Locke is a construction foreman overseeing a huge project but then suddenly receives a phone call that a co-worker he had a one-night stand with is now going into labor. Instead of going home to see his family, he decides to drive to London to be present at the birth. This (and obviously the initial one-night stand) decision starts to completely unravel his life. The movie is filmed in near real time as Locke handles things through phone calls in his car as he’s driving toward London. Stars Tom Hardy. Rated R.

 

Rage [Blu-ray]

Rage – Starring Nicolas Cage, Rage is the story of Paul, who once lived a life of crime and even stole money from a Russian mob boss almost two decades ago. Taking his share of the money, he goes legit and builds a business in Mobile, Alabama. That is until it looks like his daughter is kidnapped by the Russian mafia, he goes on a rampage to track down his daughter. Not Rated.

 

The Railway Man [Blu-ray + UltraViolet]

The Railway Man – A biopic about Eric Lomax, who was captured during World War II and then forced to work on the Thai-Burma Railway. Even years later, he’s still haunted by his experiences and finds that one of the men that held him is still alive and he sets out to confront him. Stars Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Jeremy Irvine, and Stellan Skarsgård. Rated R.

 

Disneynature: Bears (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)

Disneynature: Bears – Bears is the newest documentary from DisneyNature about Grizzly Bears and their cubs. It’s narrated by John C. Reilly who supposedly also does some voices for the cub bears. Narrated by John C. Reilly. Rated G.

 

Batman: Assault on Arkham [Blu-ray]

Batman: Assault on Arkham – The next DC Animated film, this one supposedly acting as a sequel to the events in the Batman: Arkham Origins video game (which makes the voice cast weird. But that’s every DC Animated film) where Batman and the Suicide Squad join together to stop a dirty bomb. Best part about the film is probably that Kevin Conroy returns as the voice of Batman, and Troy Baker as the Joker. Stars Kevin Conroy, Neal McDonough, Hynden Walch, Matthew Gray Gubler, Troy Baker, C.C.H. Pounder, Greg Ellis, Giancarlo Esposito, John DiMaggio, Jennifer Hale, Nolan North, Eric Bauza, Chris Cox, Martin Jarvis, Peter Jessop, Christian Lanz, Andrea Romano, Travis Willingham, and Mick Wingert.

Young Justice: The Complete First Season [Blu-ray]

Young Justice: The Complete First Season – Even though they aren’t making more and it’s still being handled terribly, but the entire first season of Young Justice is now on Blu-Ray, which is cause enough to celebrate.
