Like you may have guessed today is Tuesday. I almost picked Another WolfCop as the Blu-ray today, almost. I’m not sure how I missed that Blockers was coming out but I did. Anyways Blockers is today’s pick.
Julie, Kayla and Sam are three high school seniors who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. Lisa, Mitchell and Hunter are three overprotective parents who flip out when they find out about their daughters’ plans. They soon join forces for a wild and chaotic quest to stop the girls from sealing the deal — no matter what the cost. – Universal Pictures
2018 has been a good year for film, comedies included. With that being said in my humble opinion, Blockers is the funniest movie of the year, at this point in time. The plot is somewhat ridiculous but is certainly a fresh take on the “prom comedy” genre. Blockers has one of John Cena’s best performances. He is a funny guy and when he is given the chance to do comedy he really shines. Blockers packs a hilarious punch but it’ll also hit you with some serious emotion. An over the top raunchy comedy, yes but also a heartfelt movie about a child and parent’s relationship as they grow up. This could certainly be an awkward movie to watch with your family but it kind of is a family movie.
Included with the Blu-ray:
- Digital HD
- Special Features
- Deleted Scenes
- Gag Reel – The entire cast contributes to these on-set flubs.
- Line-O-Rama – The laughs continue after the take!
- Rescue Mission – Being a parent isn’t easy, as Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, and John Cena make abundantly clear. Hear them and director Kay Cannon discuss parental mistakes and lessons learned. They even top it off with a good old-fashioned car explosion!

- Chug! Chug! Chug! – The film introduced the world to the concept of “butt chugging.” Hear cast, crew, and butt-chugger John Cena discuss how they handled this standout scene.
- Puke-a-Palooza – One memorable scene involves copious amounts of projectile vomit. See what cast, filmmakers, and crew went through to make sure the puke was as authentic as possible.
