Sam Hatch Movie Picks For The Week: Pete’s Dragon, The BFG, & 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, Blu Ray, and On Demand releases!

Two big movies featuring two BIG magical creatures lead the way in this (mostly) family-friendly movie week.  Find out about Pete’s Dragon, The BFG, and more new releases on DVD and Blu Ray now.

Pete’s Dragon

A remake of a Disney movie from the 1970s features a dirty cave kid who comes out of the woods and hangs out with a giant green dragon.


More kid friendly stuff!  Steven Spielberg’s film about a big, friendly giant. Mark Rylance stars as the BFG, who sort of looks like a giant Geddy Lee from the band Rush.

Don’t Breathe

Not everything is for kids this week… This horror flick is about a group of young thieves who break into a wealthy blind man’s house only to discover he has the upper hand! It’s not the easy job they thought it would be… and it gets pretty intense.

The Intervention

Jason Ritter and Clea DuVall head a cast of couples reuniting for a marriage intervention weekend at a lakeside vacation house.

The Wildlife

An animated family yarn, this movie is about a daring parrot who recounts how Robinson Crusoe came to be stranded on a desert island.

Ab Fab: The Movie

If you’re a fan of the cult classic British TV show Absolutely Fabulous, you’ll love this new movie that brings back Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley for a big screen romp, many years after the TV show. Think Sex and the City with older, dirtier, Cockney ladies.
