Sam Hatch’s DVD Picks For The Week: Amour, Scary Movie 5, Epic & More

It’s the movie freak and the movie geek– Find out what to buy, what to rent and what to AVOID AT ALL COSTS as Damon talks to local movie reviewer extraordinaire, Sam Hatch from Culture Dogs about this week’s new DVD and Blu Ray releases!

It’s a quiet week in movie land, but the few releases out this week still range from a critically acclaimed award winner to totally stupid humor comedy… Find out what new movies you can look forward to for your home viewing pleasure!


This one scored a TON of awards earlier this year, and it features an older group of retired teachers and a main character who’s paralyzed on one side of her body.  It may be heavy, but it’s very good and worth checking out.

Scary Movie 5

This is the one with Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen and Snoop Dogg… It’s exactly what you’d expect– dumb and not very funny.


For fans of fairy tale universes, this was a really good animated adventure.  It stars the voices of Beyonce and Amanda Seyfried.

Boardwalk Empire Season 3

There’s lots of great TV shows coming to DVD and Blu Ray now, and one of the top releases this week is the third outing of Steve Buscemi’s HBO crime drama.  It’s really cool stuff.


This low budget comedy stars Anna Kendrick, Rob Corddry and Craig Robinson in a story of two teens who have to battle through the apocalypse.

Scooby Doo! Stage Fright

The latest Scooby Doo animated movie features Matthew Lillard back as the voice of Shaggy… and Wayne Brady (!!) in a supporting role.

Sam Hatch

Check out one of these releases this week… or if you’re in the mood to hit the movie theater, go see Pacific Rim (out now) or The Conjuring (out Friday)… both those flicks are a GREAT TIME!!  For more from Sam Hatch, check out!
