New Releases for October 14, 2014

DVD/Blu-Ray

Movies

X-Men: Days of Future Past [Blu-ray]

X-Men: Days of Future Past – X-Men: Days of Future Past is the latest of the X-Men movies, and attempts to both follow a major X-Men comic book arc. It did surprise us in being a bit quite a bit better than we thought it was going to be since it sounded disjointed. But if you’ve been a fan of First Class or the original X-Men movie, this is one that you really should check out. In the future, Mutants are hunted to near extinction by the robotic Sentinels. As a last-ditch effort to save the world, they use Kitty Pryde’s mostly unused power of the ability to send a consciousness back in time. Wolverine is selected so that he can go back 50 years to bring Charles Xavier and Magento together to stop Mystique from killing the creator of the Sentinels. This is also serving as a way to bring both the old and new casts together and reset continuity so that after all the movies, only X-Men: First Class is considered canon. Stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, and many more. Rated PG-13.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman (Blu-ray / DVD + Digital Copy)

Mr. Peabody & Sherman – Mr. Peabody & Sherman is originally a segment from the Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoon and is now getting its own movie. Mr. Peabody is the smartest and most talented being alive and adopts a child instead of a child adopting a dog. After an altercation at school, he invites a family over to try to settle things, but his son uses the Wayback Machine (time machine) to impress the girl. In doing so, they completely alter the course of history and they must go back to repair the damage before the world is forever changed. We quite liked the movie and think it’s underrated. Stars Ty Burrell, Max Charles, Ariel Winter, Leslie Mann, Patrick Warburton, Stanley Tucci, and Stephen Colbert. Rated PG.

Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion

Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion – The TV movie version launch of the new Star Wars Rebels cartoon.
