[amazon_link id=”B00CFA227C” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Jack the Giant Slayer (Blu-ray/DVD + UltraViolet Digital Copy Combo Pack)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B00CFA227C” target=”_blank” ]Jack the Giant Slayer[/amazon_link] – A retelling of the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale. I think it straddles that fine line of being too silly and being too serious. I may be too nice to it since I like fairy tales, but also Nicholas Hoult, who we liked from Warm Bodies is the star of this one as well. Probably my pick of the week. Stars Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, and Ewan McGregor. Rated PG-13.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00BN3EDRE” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Movie 43 (Blu-ray / DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B00BN3EDRE” target=”_blank” ]Movie 43[/amazon_link] – This movie has been a long time in the making. It started in March 2010 but they would have to take several weeks off at a time in order to get actors and directors schedules to match up. This movie has 11 directors and 15 writers. The movie has different segments with 12 different storylines going on. (possibly concurrently) This also features a very very large ensemble cast, but it may not matter since there are so many storylines. I’m really wondering how this movie is getting a wide release. Stars Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Chloë Grace Moretz, Gerard Butler, Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Bell, and Naomi Watts. Directed by Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, Patrik Forsberg, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner, and Jonathan van Tulleken. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00BT7664M” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]21 & Over (Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B00BT7664M” target=”_blank” ]21 & Over[/amazon_link] – A straight-A Asian student is taken out by his friends for his 21st birthday and proceeds to get really drunk and have terrible things happen. Tries really hard to be funny, so far looks like its just another drunk movie. Stars Justin Chon, Miles Teller, Skylar Astin, and Sarah Wright. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00AIBZL14″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Last Exorcism Part II [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B00AIBZL14″ target=”_blank” ]The Last Exorcism Part II[/amazon_link] – Sequel to the first movie but not presented in the found footage type format of the first. Basically a continuing story of the aftermath of the first movie, especially when things weren’t all the way resolved. Stars Ashley Bell, Julia Garner, Spencer Treat Clark, Muse Watson, and Louis Herthum. Rated PG-13.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00AZMFO9U” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Quartet [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B00AZMFO9U” target=”_blank” ]Quartet[/amazon_link] – This is Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut and interestingly enough he’s not even in the movie. It’s full of British stars and is based off of a 1999 play. In a retirement home for musicians, opera singers are preparing for a yearly concert when of the singer’s ex-wife moves into the community and brings back hurt feelings and misunderstandings. Stars Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Billy Connolly, Tom Courtenay, and Pauline Collins. Rated PG-13.

 

[amazon_link id=”B00BR1ZFC4″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Ghastly Love of Johnny X[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B00BR1ZFC4″ target=”_blank” ]The Ghastly Love of Johnny X[/amazon_link] – I only include this movie because it’s made frequent appearances at the bottom of the box office list. It’s now finally out for you to enjoy. It seems to be a parody of old style B-movies. Not Rated.
