Movies

[amazon_link id=”B008WCP2KG” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Magic Mike (Blu-ray+DVD+UltraViolet Digital Copy Combo Pack)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B008WCP2KG” target=”_blank” ]Magic Mike[/amazon_link] – Someone, somewhere thought this was a good idea. I’m not sure who that person was. But I blame them for Channing Tatum being considered a star for no discernible reason. This movie is somehow based off the life of Channing Tatum before he got into acting when he worked as a Male Stripper. Stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Cody Horn, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B008SOS7MS” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B008SOS7MS” target=”_blank” ]Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection[/amazon_link] – I like to call this the double possessive movie as it’s full title is Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection. I feel like Madea is now getting to the point of being like Ernest or something. A man who is involved with a Ponzi scheme backed by the mob is put into the Witness Protection Program which decides that Madea’s house is the best place to hide someone. Stars Tyler Perry, Eugene Levy, Denise Richards, Romeo Miller, Doris Roberts, and Marla Gibbs. Rated PG-13.

 

[amazon_link id=”B005LAIHZE” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B005LAIHZE” target=”_blank” ]Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter[/amazon_link] – Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a alternate history of Abraham Lincoln’s life. It is done by the same man that made Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The book itself is a good though a little slow at times. It depicts Abe as being not so honest, secretly killing vampires and that the Civil War was fought to protect everyone from vampires. The movie had some real problems and they took out the things from the book which I thought made it cool. Read my review of it here. Stars Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rufus Sewell, and Marton Csokas. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007L6VRHG” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Seeking a Friend for the End of the World [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007L6VRHG” target=”_blank” ]Seeking a Friend for the End of the World[/amazon_link] – Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is an interesting dramedy. It appears that all efforts to stop an asteroid from hitting the earth have failed and everyone has three weeks until the earth as we know it is destroyed. (From what I heard the science gets a little suspect) Everyone in the world starts to go a little crazy. Dodge’s wife leaves him and he ending making friends and falling in love with Penny. They try to get her home to England even though all the flights have stopped. Stars Steve Carell, Keira Knightley, Rob Corddry, and Patton Oswalt. Rated R.

 

[amazon_link id=”B008G4T5VM” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Wrong Turn 5 [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B008G4T5VM” target=”_blank” ]Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines[/amazon_link] – You would think that after a while someone would check a map or a GPS to prevent all the wrong turns. This one seems to be not too connected with the rest of the series. But a small mining town hosts a festival and a group of college kids get taken by a family of cannibals. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B008NNY9OY” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Athena Goddess of War Movie (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B008NNY9OY” target=”_blank” ]Athena Goddess of War Movie[/amazon_link] – Funimation put out this live action Korean movie about a double agent torn between two different men. She tries to play both sides for as long as she can but will most likely get caught. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B007MDB548″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Secret of the Wings (Four-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B007MDB548″ target=”_blank” ]Secret of the Wings[/amazon_link] – The next in the series of Tinkerbell movies, where Tinkerbell talks. (Not sure how I feel about that.) In this movie, she finds out that she has a twin sister that lives in the winter part of the fairy kingdom. I’m not sure how she’d have a twin sister from a different season but who knows how it works. Rated G.

TV

[amazon_link id=”B0090XUARQ” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Upstairs Downstairs: Season 2[/amazon_link]
[amazon_link id=”B0090XUARQ” target=”_blank” ]Upstairs Downstairs: Season 2[/amazon_link] – The second season the BBC series. The lives of those upstairs are very different from those living below. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B008CJ0KEM” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Lost Girl: Season One [Blu-ray][/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B008CJ0KEM” target=”_blank” ]Lost Girl: Season One[/amazon_link] – Another Live Action release from Funimation, this time with a series that’s been airing on SyFy. In this series the main girl finds out that she is a succubus and that there is a magical world of Fae with both a light and dark side and tries to find out her hidden past. I’m not sure why Funimation is releasing this instead of SyFy but they do that occasionally. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B008IG0FEY” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Through The Wormhole With Morgan Freeman: Season 3[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B008IG0FEY” target=”_blank” ]Through The Wormhole With Morgan Freeman: Season 3[/amazon_link] – A VERY good series hosted by Morgan Freeman about the sciences. They go through lots of interesting concepts from black holes to is the universe just a computer simulation. Not Rated.

[amazon_link id=”B008HUSFXO” target=”_blank” ]Law & Order: Criminal Intent: Year Eight[/amazon_link] – Not sure why this is being released so late other then just wanting to preserve ratings for reruns since this is several years old. This is the year that Jeff Goldblum joined the cast. Not Rated.

The Fourth Great Ninja War is about to start but the Hidden Village of the Leaf, tries to solve things before war breaks out. This is by Viz Media and is dubbed and subbed. Not Rated.

 

[amazon_link id=”B008NNY9MQ” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Aria: The Scarlet Ammo (Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo)[/amazon_link]

[amazon_link id=”B008NNY9MQ” target=”_blank” ]Aria: The Scarlet Ammo[/amazon_link] – Funimation goes back to fanservice with a story of a junior at a High School for mercenaries. Kinji has a secret but odd condition of turning into ace killer whenever he’s turned on by girls. Not Rated.

[amazon_link id=”B008KZX8VK” target=”_blank” ]Majikoi: Oh! Samurai Girl – The Complete Collection[/amazon_link] – This one is another one by Section 23, but they decide this is the one that they are going to dub. *eyeroll* In the series, social status is ruled by ancestry and fighting, and at the school, small bands of people group together. A group of seven starts to have problems with two more girls join the bunch. Not Rated.
