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!
This week sees the release of some cool movies you may have missed in theaters. From real-life dramas like Rush to new stuff for the kids, it’s a great week to stay in and catch up on some great movies!
One of Sam’s favorite movies of 2013 which sort of drove under the radar. This drama, based on a true story stars Chris “Thor” Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl as Formula One racers and their long standing rivalry on and off the track. It’s directed by Ron Howard and it’s totally worth checking out.
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2
This one’s loaded with “Foodimals,” food-animal hybrids, and it’s super fun for the kids.
Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa
This one features a kid, but it’s not FOR the kids. This movie stars long-running Jackass character Irving Zisman, in a story cruising across America with his grandson in tow, Borat style. It’s very, very funny.
The Fifth Estate
Daniel Bruhl and Benedict Cumberbatch star in this movie about the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange. It’s not the best biopic ever, and it kind of falls apart in a few places, but it’s such a fascinating story it’s still worth a rental.
If you liked The Hangover, but wished old people were in it, here’s the movie for you– It stars Michael Douglas, Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline. One of them is getting married so they all decide to hit Vegas to celebrate. Another rent-worthy movie.
