New Blu-ray Tuesday 8/1/17

Hey happy Tuesday. It looks like I’ve been slacking, I haven’t seen any of the movies coming out this week. I wanted to see a few of them so I’ve got 4 picks this week. Sleight, Going in Style, Phoenix Forgotten  and Colossal.

After his mother’s death, a young street magician (Jacob Latimore) turns to dealing drugs at parties to support his little sister. When she is kidnapped by his supplier, he uses his sleight of hand and keen intelligence to find her. – WWE Studios

Magic, maybe superpowers and Dule Hill from Psych. I’m sold. Plus WWE Studios makes some decent movies and Blumhouse is also behind this.

This Blu-ray includes:

  • Blu-ray disc
  • DVD
  • Digital HD
  • Special Features
    • Trailers

You can get Sleight here.

Lifelong buddies Willie (Morgan Freeman), Joe (Michael Caine) and Albert (Alan Arkin) decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow when their pension funds become a corporate casualty. Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three men risk it all by embarking on a daring adventure to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money. – Warner Bros. Pictures

Even if the plot isn’t good, I’m sure the main cast can make it somewhat enjoyable. Zach Braff directed it as well, I like him.

This Blu-ray includes:

  • Blu-ray disc
  • DVD
  • Digital HD
  • Special Features
    •  Deleted Scenes
    • Directors Commentary

You can get Going in Style here.

On March 13, 1997, several mysterious lights appeared over Phoenix. Three teens went into the desert shortly after the incident, hoping to document the strange events occurring in their town. They disappeared that night and were never seen again. Now, on the 20th anniversary of their disappearance, unseen footage has finally been discovered, chronicling the final hours of their fateful expedition. – Cinelou Films

I usually don’t care for found footage films, I am looking at you Blair Witch remake. Aliens might make it more interesting, Cloverfield was fantastic.

This Blu-ray includes:

  • Blu-ray disc
  • DVD
  • Digital HD
  • Special Features
    • Sophie’s Story
    • Phoenix Found
    • Auto Commentary with Justin Barber, Florence Hartigan, Chelsea Lopez and Justin Matthews

A comedic kaiju movie with Jason Sudeikis and Anne Hathaway. How could this movie be bad?

I'm a recent college grad trying to make my mark on the world. But I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyways I spend way too much money on movie tickets. I obsessively buy blu-rays and other movie paraphernalia, that's what credit cards are for, right? I like anything superhero related especially the MCU, the DC CW shows and I'll tell you Batman v. Superman wasn't that bad. My ultimate guilty pleasure movie is Daredevil. Yeah the Ben Affleck one. Watch the directors cut, it'll change your life. I have a tendency to have man crushes on men named Chris, especially Chris Pratt. My superhero obsession has also led to a gym obsession, I just want to look as good as Chris Evans in a plain white tee. I have a podcast on iTunes called the Deadlifting Dorks, I think we are really funny.
