Do you ever have the experience after a long weekend where you just completely forget what day it is and think it is Monday all day? So that happened yesterday and I completely missed the fact that it was DVD/Blu-Ray release day. It's too bad also, because End of Watch was released and it is well worth a viewing session. In fact, it is one of the most realistic looks at the life of a cop that I have seen in a very long time. It is emotional and also incredibly violent, so prepare yourself. Two documentaries were also released and being a sucker for quality real stories, they both look fascinating.
Otherwise, there was not much released this week, but as some of these (ignore Paperboy) look like incredibly good movies, I couldn't skip a report this week – even with my lateness.
DVD/Blu-Ray: January 22nd
|1. End of Watch|
|2. The Imposter|
This film is a documentary..I think. It is filmed in that style, but seems to blur the line between fiction and reality. The story revolves around a 13 year old boy who disappeared without a trace. Three years later he was "found" in Spain, but after an investigator finds many differences, many wonder if he really was found? It's a strange story and even stranger if it is actually true.
|3. Searching for Sugar Man|
Another documentary that I have heard some say is the best movie of 2012 and it was nominated for an Academy Award. I don't want to say much more as I think it will be better to go and discover for yourself.
|4. The Paperboy|
