DVD/Blu-Ray

Movies

Birdman [Blu-ray]

Birdman – The highly nominated film starring Michael Keaton as a washed up actor who used to play the superhero “Birdman” (mocking Keaton’s own association with Batman) who is starring in a new Broadway play. However, he haunted by visions and the voice of Birdman in his everyday life, while everything goes wrong. Stars Michael Keaton, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts. Rated R.

Dumb and Dumber To (Blu-ray + DVD + DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet)

Dumb and Dumber To – After 20 years, Dumb and Dumber To is the sequel to Dumb and Dumber with the Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, and the The Farrelly Brothers. After 20 years of Lloyd pretending to be catatonic in a mental hospital, Harry and Lloyd team up together to track down the daughter that Harry never knew that he had.

Rated PG-13.

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (Blu-ray + DVD)

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya – The newest Studio Ghibli film but however was not done by Hayao Miyazaki. This is one of the Academy Award nominated animated films and is done in a beautiful watercolor style and tells the Japanese folktale of the Tale of the Bamboo Cutter. This could have gone in several categories but since its up for an Oscar I left it here. Stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Darren Criss, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, and Lucy Liu. Rated PG.

The Interview (Blu-ray + UltraViolet)

The Interview – The very dumb movie about assassinating Kim Jong Un that nearly collapsed Sony, caused international tensions and made people think they were patriotic for seeing. Do not see this movie (review is forthcoming.) Stars James Franco and Seth Rogen. Rated R.

St. Vincent  [Blu-ray]

St. Vincent – St. Vincent is about a single mother who works long hours that is forced (no word on how he is convinced) to have her son be watched by their eccentric retired neighbor and the unlikely pair bonds. Stars Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd, Naomi Watts, Terrance Howard, and Jaeden Lieberher. Rated PG-13.
