New Blu-ray Tuesday 8/29/17

Happy Tuesday nerds. This week is a bummer. Nothing really good is a getting released or at least the big release this week is no good. Baywatch is the big blu-ray release for the week and while I love Dwayne Johnson and quite enjoy Zac Efron I can’t recommend Baywatch. Baywatch just wasn’t all that good despite the great cast. If you must buy the movie I would recommend waiting until it is in a $5 bin. So I picked a DVD this week. Dean.

A comedy about loss, grief and the redemptive power of love, Dean is an NY illustrator who falls hard for an LA woman while trying to prevent his father from selling the family home in the wake of his mother’s death. – CBS Films

I hadn’t heard of this movie until I sat down to write this article but it looks pretty good. Dean is written and directed by Demtri Martin, who also play the titular character. I know Demtri Martin from his stand-up comedy. His style of comedy is unconventional and that’s why he is one of my favorite comedians. His jokes consist of one-liners, drawings, stories and music. Martin has various stand-ups and had a short lived show on Comedy Central, I highly recommend checking all of them out. I have high hopes for Dean. 

Included with the DVD you will find:

  • DVD
  • Special Features
    • This Is a Movie: Making DEAN
    • Drawing on Film: Stories About DEAN
    • DEAN: Q & A with Demetri Martin and Rory Scovel

I definitely want to see this movie but I may hold out to see if a Blu-ray is released.

You can buy Dean here.

  • Baywatch
  • My Cousin Rachel 
  • A Family Man

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.
