[amazon_link id=”B006JTS5OO” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Muppets (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy + Soundtrack Download Card)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B006JTS5OO” target=”_blank” ]The Muppets[/amazon_link] – Hands down the best release of the week, The Muppets brings back the Muppets in glorious fashion. The separated Muppets have to get back together so they can save their old studio. This is a great family comedy and pays tribute to the original Muppet Show and is completely brilliant. Buy it now! Maniacal laugh! Maniacal laugh! Maniacal laugh!

[amazon_link id=”B003Y5H5HY” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Three-Disc Combo Blu-ray / DVD + UltraViolet Digital Copy)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B003Y5H5HY” target=”_blank” ]The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo[/amazon_link] – The other big release of the week is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. This is the American remake of the Swedish film based off the book. This is the first of three films call the “Millennium Series.” A discredited journalist and a computer hacker have to investigate a 40-year-old murder. Stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0059XTTW8″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0059XTTW8″ target=”_blank” ]Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy[/amazon_link] – Based off the book of the same name, this movie stars Gary Oldman as a British Intelligence officer brought out of retirement to investigate a mole within British Intelligence. Rated R.

[amazon_link id=”B00466HN72″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Hop Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray+DVD+Digital Copy+UltraViolet)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B00466HN72″ target=”_blank” ]Hop[/amazon_link] – A fun but flawed family film, brought you by the same studio that made Despicable Me and The Lorax in a live action/computer animated movie about the son of the Easter Bunny who doesn’t want to grow up to be the next Easter Bunny. As he goes on an adventure, one of the chick (Not chicken) assistants stages a coup and tries to become the next Easter Bunny instead. Rated PG.

 

[amazon_link id=”B004LWZW5Q” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Sitter (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B004LWZW5Q” target=”_blank” ]The Sitter[/amazon_link] – Probably the last movie with the heavy version of Jonah Hill. He plays a lazy mid-twenties man who takes a babysitting job to please his girlfriend. From the makers of Pineapple Express as you would expect, the night is filled with drugs, violence, and a lot more with all the children in tow. Rated R for the obvious reasons the summary implies.

 

[amazon_link id=”B0069556OK” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Fairy Tail: Part 4 (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B0069556OK” target=”_blank” ]Fairy Tail: Part 4[/amazon_link] – The next installment in the the series of Natsu and Lucy along with the rest of the Fairy Tail guild as they use their magic in the land of Fiore. A very fun series, and Funimation has done a great job dubbing it. Not Rated.

[amazon_link id=”B005SH6482″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Batman: The Brave and the Bold - Season Two, Part Two[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B005SH6482″ target=”_blank” ]Batman: The Brave and The Bold: Season 2, Part 2[/amazon_link] – The next installment of brilliant animated series that ended way too soon. Reminanct of the old Adam West Batman, the series features teamups with many of the superheroes from the DC Comics universe, big and small. Not Rated.

[amazon_link id=”B006MWA8QQ” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Dragon Ball Z Kai: Part Seven [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B006MWA8QQ” target=”_blank” ]Dragon Ball Z Kai: Part 7[/amazon_link] – The next installment of the remastered version of the classic anime series. This is a much shorter version that follows the manga better and celebrates the shows anniversary. If you want to see what the fuss of the series about, look at the Kai series as a great primer. Not Rated.

 

Video Games

[amazon_link id=”B002I0EMBI” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Kid Icarus:  Uprising[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B002I0EMBI” target=”_blank” ]Kid Icarus: Uprising [/amazon_link] – Medusa is rising up and it’s up to the angel Pit to save the day. Still no idea why it’s called Kid Icarus with an angel Pit, and no melting of fake wings. New take on an old classic. Rated E for Everyone 10 and up.

 

[amazon_link id=”B004UDB9SA” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City[/amazon_link]

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City – A new installment in the Resident Evil franchise. This one actually takes place between Resident Evil 2 and 3 and I hear that the voice acting is superb.  The style of gameplay is a little different with more third person shooter than previous games. Rated M for Mature.
