On the Shelves: DVD Releases for July 17, 2012
Some of the DVD/Blu-Ray releases for this week. Lots of good stuff this week.
Lockout – I love Guy Pearce, I want to see him in more movies like this. Pearce plays a wrongly accused man offered his freedom if he can bust into a high security prison IN SPACE and rescue the President’s daughter who has become trapped inside. What’s not to love about that premise?
High Noon: 60th Anniversary Edition – I’m a western guy, so I have to mention this classic starring Gary Cooper and the amazing Grace Kelly. Check out this real time western on Blu-Ray in all of its awesome glory.
Alphas: Season 1 – I hear nothing but great things about this TV series. It sounds like a British Heroes, but more awesome. MUCH more awesome. I mean, it guest stars people like Lindsay Wagner, Brent Spiner and Summer Glau. I will definitely be checking this one out.
Next of Kin – I can’t for any reason explain to you why, but I like this movie. Just the fact that it’s a modern-ish movie where the main character’s weapon of choice is a f**king bow and arrow. That’s just badass. Plus look at the cast; Patrick Swayze, Adam Baldwin, Ben Stiller, Liam Neeson and Helen Hunt. Amazing.
The Three Stooges: The Movie – I like the Three Stooges. I like the idea of this movie. There are some things I liked in the trailer, but there are also some things I hated. I like that they aren’t doing a “behind the scenes” movie, they are doing an actual Three Stooges movie. I hate that Snooki makes an appearance. I also wish they would have given this movie an actual title like The Three Stooges in Blah, Blah, Blah. Not the terrible, terrible The Three Stooges: The Movie. I’m going to watch it, for better or worse. I’ll let you know which.
Casa de mi Padre – The trailer for this looks like it could be Will Ferrell’s Nacho Libre, as in most people won’t ever remember it but the people that do think it’s hilarious. I think the trailer is funny, but I’m not sure how that holds up over an hour and a half.
