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!

There’s a TON of new movies out on DVD and Blu Ray this week… dramas like The Butler, romance like The Spectacular Now, action from Vin Diesel’s Riddick, and scary stuff like You’re Next and Carrie… Let’s jump in to the exciting new releases you can buy, rent or stream today!

The Butler

AKA Lee Daniels’ The Butler, this one stars Forest Whitaker and it’s produced by Oprah.  It’s the story of a butler working through multiple presidencies, dealing with desegregation, race riots, assassinations and more cultural upheavals.

Enough Said

If you want more of a romantic comedy, this movie stars James Gandolfini in one of his final acting roles.  Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays a divorced single parnet who falls for him, but little does she know one of her clients used to be married to her new love interest.  It was up for a few Golden Globes nominations, so there’s definitely something to it.

The Spectacular Now

This is a teen romance based on a book by Tim Tharp.  It’s really good!

You’re Next

Looking for something more horrific?  This one’s about a family reunion out in the middle of nowhere, and these invaders wearing animal masks attack them.  It’s really cool, so you should check it out!

20 Feet From Stardom

This documentary is getting a lot of buzz.  It features the world of back up singers to big performing artists.

Fruitvale Station

Nope, it’s not a Veggie Tales movie, this film stars Michael B. Jordan as a young teen who gets shot in San Francisco.  It’s getting a lot of buzz, and it’s totally worth seeing now.

Riddick

The third film in Vin Diesel’s sci fi series, which goes back to the spirit of the first movie Pitch Black, with a mix of science fiction, horror, action and monstrous fun.

Carrie

The latest remake of Stephen King’s novel stars Chloe Grace Moretz (from the Kick-Ass movies) and Juliane Moore.  It’s nowhere near as good as the Sissy Spacek classic from the 70s, but it’s still worth checking out.
