Hey-oh it’s Tuesday and that means new blu-rays. This week is delivering some good releases, I think. This week’s picks are The Killing of a Sacred Deer and Thank You for Your Service, that’s right two picks this week and I haven’t seen either of them. The only release out this week I’ve seen is Jigsaw, it was alright but don’t buy it.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Dr. Steven Murphy is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon who presides over a spotless household with his wife and two children. Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin, a fatherless teen who insinuates himself into the doctor’s life in gradually unsettling ways. Soon, the full scope of Martin’s intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter his domestic bliss forever. – A24
