Today it’s Tuesday and we are about to get nuts. You want to get nuts, let’s get nuts! Seriously though I have 4, yes 4 blu-rays picked out for today. Happy Tuesday, let’s get this show on the road.
The Disaster Artist
With ‘The Disaster Artist,’ James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau—an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable—into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece ‘The Room’ (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), ‘The Disaster Artist’ is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing. – A24 Films
The Disaster Artist is a humorous, heartwarming true story about following your dreams and friendship. This film is about the making of the film, The Room a notoriously bad film. James Franco directs and stars in this masterpiece, he gives The Room the justice it deserves. This is a well-acted and well-intended film. The Disaster Artist is a must-see film for fans of the The Room or good films in general.

I can’t say much about I, Tonya I haven’t seen it. But Margot Robbie and everyone else look fantastic in it and I heard it was great. Sad, I missed this one, so I am picking it up.

Call Me By Your Name
It’s the summer of 1983, and precocious 17-year-old Elio Perlman is spending the days with his family at their 17th-century villa in Lombardy, Italy. He soon meets Oliver, a handsome doctoral student who’s working as an intern for Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of their surroundings, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever. – Sony Pictures Classic

Justice League – Standard Edition/Best Buy Steelbook/ Target Digibook
Best Buy Steelbook
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.– Warner Bros. Pictures
So, this is the only none Academy Award nominated Blu-ray picked out this week. It’s safe to say it doesn’t exactly fit in but I promise it’s worth the buy if you’re a DC fan. People will roast this movie but it’s a lot of fun. It’s certainly not a perfect movie but come on its Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman on the big screen together. This film is a serious course correction and doesn’t really mesh with the previous films but let’s be real that’s comics, they retcon stuff all willy nilly when it works for the story. Shut your brain off, watch this movie and have some fun, it’s the Justice League. Henry Cavill’s mustache does look awful though, that is for real.
