I think as we are entering a great summer in theaters, we are starting to feel the dismal-ness of the time for DVD/Blu-Ray releases that are, well, kind of in a slump. There are a few that could be really great, but nothing that I am just dying to watch. Coriolanus is supposed to be great, and if it stands up to the trailer, definitely should be. We Need to Talk about Kevin is probably worth watching, if for nothing more than the acting, but otherwise, I think I will be sticking to my current TV marathon.
A thriller in which a girl thinks a serial killer has abducted her sister. She then embarks on a chase to find the killer, but I think unless you have a real thing for Amanda Seyfried, you would be better to watch something else…anything else.
Was surprised at how positive the reviews for this film are. Didn't expect it, but seems like Seann William Scott shines in this movie about a guy who becomes the underdog when he just wants to be a hockey player. If it's anything like Rudy, count me in.
|4. Man on a Ledge|
An interesting concept for another thriller, action crime, but just doesn't deliver. Was really only worth a DVD watch, and I'm not even sure if even that is worth it.
|5. We Need to Talk About Kevin|
There was much talk about an Academy Award nomination for Tilda Swinton in this film, and while she was snubbed, it is worth it just to see her phenomenal performance. An intense psychological thriller about the relationship between a mother and a son, and nature vs. nurture when he becomes truly evil.
|6. True Blood|
In preparation of Season Five that begins airing on HBO on June 10th. Catch up now or start sucking blood for the first time.
|7. Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker|
I must admit I don't know much about this show, but I suspect there will be some people that are pretty pumped for this.
|8. Rookie Blue|
The third season has already started airing on ABC, but in case you need to catch up, Season two is now available.
Parts 1 and 2 on Blu-Ray
I really need to brush up on my anime knowledge, but another, I suspect, many will be excited for.
Season 1 Maverick starred James Garner as a wise-cracking ladies man. If you are a fan of classic TV Westerns you should add this to your collection.
