Movies

The 5th Wave

The 5th Wave – After aliens arrive on Earth and attack the human race in various “waves” that kill off more and more humans, Cassie and her brother Sam are separated when he is sent off to a training camp. Determined to reunite with her brother again, Cassie does whatever it takes to get to him. When she is attacked along the way, Cassie is saved by Evan, who may be more than what he seems. Together they try to get to Cassie’s brother before the “fifth wave” is unleashed. Stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Robinson, Ron Livingston, Maggie Siff, Alex Roe, Maria Bello, Maika Monroe, and Liev Schreiber. Rated PG-13.

The Choice

The Choice – The Choice is the now yearly romantic drama based off of a Nicholas Sparks book. A small town vet and ladies man, Travis Shaw falls in love with his new neighbor Gabby. Gabby is a medical student about to get married to her long-time boyfriend until getting to know Travis. After a whirlwind romance, Gabby and Travis get married. Soon after, Gabby is in an accident that sends her into a coma. Travis has to decide on if she should be taken off life support or have her in long-term care. Please don’t go see this movie. This is the only way that they will stop. But we can still make fun of Nicholas Sparks for writing all these novels and is now divorced. Stars Benjamin Walker, Teresa Palmer, Maggie Grace, Alexandra Daddario, Tom Welling, and Tom Wilkinson. Rated PG-13.

Joy

Joy – Joy is vaguely based on the life of Joy Mangano and out how she invents the world’s first self wringing mop and makes millions by selling it on QVC – though you wouldn’t know it from the advertising or the trailer. There is barely a hint of the mop in the trailer, instead it tries to focus on her terrible family and struggle to succeed even though a large part of it is fictionalized specifically for the movie. Stars Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Isabella Rossellini, Bradley Cooper, Melissa Rivers, and Susan Lucci. Rated PG-13.

TV

The Last Ship: Season 2

The Last Ship: Season 2 – The second season of the TNT series about the only boat to survive a pandemic that’s racing to find a cure and save humanity. This set comes out before the third season is set to premiere over the summer. Not Rated.

Cartoon/Anime

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir - Volume 1

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir – Volume 1 – The first volume of the very good Miraculous Ladybug, featuring guest Bryce Papenbrook as Cat Noir! The set contains the first 7 episodes of season one with The Bubbler, Mr. Pigeon, Stormy Weather, Timebreaker, Copycat, The Pharoah, and Lady Wifi. It also include cast and crew interviews, which is definitely a plus in such a cheap set. Definitely check it out! Not Rated.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal: Season 3

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal: Season 3 – Season 3 of Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal where Yuma and Astral look for the 7 legendary Number cards. This set comes with all the episodes on 6 discs. Not Rated.

RWBY: Volume 3

RWBY: Volume 3 – The third volume (I believe really “season”) set of RWBY by Rooster Teeth from right here in Texas! This one is noteworthy for being the continuation of the series after the death of one of the creators of the series. Not Rated.

Gundam Evolve

Gundam Evolve – A big collection of shorts, side stories, episode retellings, and more! This includes 15 short films that were shown at conventions or with model sets in Japan and even features a one shot side story with Heero Yuy from Gundam Wing in a brand new film. This sadly is a sub only release but if you’re a fan of Gundam, this is definitely a set to look out for. Not Rated.

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: A New Translation

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: A New Translation – I believe this is an old movie set that’s being rereleased. This is the a recut movie from the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam series. Not Rated.

Video Games

Battleborn

Battleborn – Finally it’s time for Battleborn, the latest game by local game company, Gearbox. In Battleborn, a band of heroes unite to defend the last star in the universe, and features gameplay that works in both single and multiplayer modes. The voice cast is great if you’re a fan of Borderlands or much of the anime done at Funimation since many of the actors would be familiar, including Caitlin Glass, Chris Sabat, Ian Sinclair, Todd Haberkorn, Clifford Chapin, Colleen Clinkenbeard, and Chris Rager as the villain of the game, Lothar Rendain. Available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Rated T for Teen.
