Hey Disc Head! New to Blu Ray and DVD: February 19, 2010
Law Abiding Citizen
Gerard Butler turns on the Hard Man routine for this action thriller, where he plays a sociopath, Clyde Shelton, hell-bent on avenging his family’s murder. Jamie Foxx is the prosecutor, Nick Rice, who gave a light sentence to one of the murderers, and 10 years later, is the only person who can stop Shelton’s rain of terror. Sounds like The Punisher to me!
Splinterheads is a comedy starring newcomer Thomas Middlemitch as Justin Frost, a guy in his 20′s with no life plans or ambitions. This all changes when he meets a Carnival girl/Con Woman called Galaxy, played by the beautiful Rachael Taylor.
He’s Super Bad, He’s outta Sight. He is Black Dynamite! That says it all really. This action spoof of 70′s Blaxploitation movies, features Michael Jai White as a former CIA Agent whose brother is brutally murdered by, none other than, The Man. Black Dynamite sets out to avenge his brothers death, while taking down pimps, kung fu masters, and a variety of other foes. Did i mention he had nun-chucks? Awesome.(not like these guys!)
A great mobster movie that’s still as good today as it was in 1990. If you haven’t seen this already, then there is something wrong with you. With the 20th Anniversary Edition you get the bonus documentary – Public Enemies: The Golden Age of the Gangster, which delves into the gangster movie genre from the earliest silent movies to present day.
When five friends head out to a cabin in the woods for some merriment, they unknowingly come into contact with a flesh eating virus. As one of the party starts to deteriorate, the rest get paranoid and start turn on each other. Funny and gory, my type of movie. Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever also gets its dvd release this week, and promises more of he same, but this time set in a high school!
Worth a mention:
If you gamers out there haven’t yet had your fill of the all mighty Master Chief, then good news! The elaborate Halo back story is now available in several animated short stories. A “must have” for Halo enthusiasts!
Looking for a late Valentine’s Day present? Or maybe it’s your girlfriend/wife’s birthday? These are the only reasons any man should lay their hands on this movie. It’s the story of the early life of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, and it’s definitely a chick flick. Your in denial if you think otherwise.
