The Divergent Series: Allegiant

The Divergent Series: Allegiant – The third installment to the Divergent series as Tris and Four escape beyond Chicago and discover the truth about Chicago and the different caste systems that they lived under was actually a government-run test to repair genetic damage and a war in Chicago. Really the official description for this is VERY unhelpful to know what the plot of the movie is. Stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jeff Daniels, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Zoë Kravitz, Maggie Q, Ray Stevenson, Daniel Dae Kim, Bill Skarsgård, Octavia Spencer, and Naomi Watts. Rated PG-13.

Stars Jennifer Garner, Martin Henderson, Kylie Rogers, Eugenio Derbez, and Queen Latifah. Rated PG.

TV

iZombie: Season OneiZombie: Season Two

iZombie: Season One & iZombie: Season Two – The popular CW zombie crime series loosely based on the DC Comics/Vertigo series of the same name. iZombie centers around Liv Moore, a former medical resident that got turned into a zombie during a massacre at a boat party that saw the creation of several zombies. The zombies were created from a special ingredient in a new energy drink and caused those turned into zombies to crave human brains. To prevent herself from becoming a full zombie, Liv becomes an assistant medical examiner to have access to the brains that come in for examination. A side effect of her eating the brains is experiencing the victims memories and mannerisms that she uses to solve crimes and prevent the existence of zombies from becoming public knowledge. Though I have no idea why they waited a year to release to release the first season at the same time as the second season. Not Rated.

Colony has been renewed for a second season for 2017. Not Rated.

Power Rangers Dino Charge: Breakout

Power Rangers Dino Charge: Breakout – I believe this is the third volume of Power Rangers Dino Charge. Though these aren’t as good of value as the season sets since it’s only 4 episodes at a time. Not Rated.

Not Rated.

Shonen Hollywood - Holly Stage for 50: Season Two

Shonen Hollywood – Holly Stage for 50: Season Two – Somehow I missed this, probably because it was yet another sub only Funimation release that flew under the radar. This time its the second season of Shonen Hollywood as the boys tries to continue to break into the idol world. Not Rated.

Hatenkou Yugi

Hatenkou Yugi – Another late release that I missed that flew under the radar. Hatenkou Yugi is a sub only release from Sentai Filmworks with only 10 episodes.

Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters – This is the new Ghostbusters video game based off of the new movie, though in a very confusing move it features a new team of Ghostbusters but NOT the new team from the movie.

Monster Hunter Generations

Monster Hunter Generations – The latest Monster Hunter game. Available on 3Ds. Rated T for Teen.
