Sam Hatch’s DVD Picks For The Week: Anchorman 2, 47 Ronin & 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!
There’s some debatable new movies out this week… and some genuine stinkers. Get the full run down from our movie guy, Sam Hatch from Culture Dogs!
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
A lot of people were disappointed in this comedy sequel, but Sam thinks it’s a really, really funny movie. It faced too much expectation… the first one became a classic, but it took a few viewings to really find its following. Anchorman 2 is loaded with gag reels, alternate lines and three versions of the movie– the original version, an unrated extended cut and the variant edition with 763 different jokes in it. There’s tons of stuff on the DVD, so if you were a fan of the first movie, pick this one up.
This super-stinker stars Keanu Reeves, and it totally bombed. It’s a classic samurai story mixed with a bunch of crazy Sucker Punch/ Matrix looking stuff. Keanu just remade Citizen Kane, as well, so Sam thinks it’s a sign the actor is going a little off the deep end.
Knights of Badassdom
This comedy stars Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones, and it’s about live action role players who contact real evil and unleash a succubus on the world. Also starring Summer Glau and Steve Zahn, it’s worth a look if you’re in the mood for something geeky and silly.
Bird of Paradise
Ashley Tisdale and Drake Bell star in this cartoon story of a sparrow who wants to be an extraordinary bird. Something for the kids, especially if they liked Rio.
No Holds Barred
The classic Hulk Hogan movie is showing up on Blu Ray for the first time.
