Yes, it is the moment all you The Hunger Games fanatics have been waiting for…the first movie in the franchise has finally been released on DVD and you can watch it over and over and yes, over again. Well, actually you might not want to watch all the shaky camera movement for too long, so maybe the real good news rather than watch it over and over, you can watch it once while taking breaks. Being that this was my favorite novel in the series, I am a little bit nervous about the next two films, so for now, am happy to just re-watch this one.
However, if you want some tougher and grittier non-stop action, then you have The Raid: Redemption on DVD. I haven't seen it and from the trailer really am confused about the storyline, but I think it has to do with a special forces team that enters a big town and attempts to kill a vicious crime-lord. Oh, and it looks really really violent.
Speaking of violence - Dexter Season Six!
|1. The Hunger Games|
Katniss Everdeen, you're my hero.
|2. The Raid: Redemption|
One critic calls it a "brutal ballet". That means watch it with the kids, right?!
Season Six on DVD/Blu-Ray
Dexter has angel wings made out of blood on the cover and if that is not enough to make you want to catch up on the sixth season, I don't know what is.
|4. Kill List|
The film's description claims it's the number one horror film of the year…too bad it looks nowhere near that.
|5. The Snowtown Murders|
If you would like to know the story of the most notorious serial killer in Australia's history, well, here you go. The film focuses on the relationship between John Bunting and his protégé Jamie Vlassakis, and I am sufficiently creeped out by both of them.
It's as rotten as rotten gets (0%) and I think that is enough said.
I recently watched Jaws at night, sitting in the dark on a beach, I was still amazed at how it the scares held up and that really remembered that it was directed so brilliantly. It's worth re-visiting and especially in high definition glory.
|8. Dr. Seuss' The Lorax|
Since I was gone last week and in case you really need to know, Dr. Seuss' The Lorax is out on DVD.
