It seems only during award season do we see films coming out "early" to home video. Sure there are some video on demand services getting some movies early, and the occasional outlier that is smart enough to get into homes not long after their film leaves theaters. You would think by now movie studios would be more on top of things. Yet movies seem more stuck in the past than even traditional television is.
|1. Captain Phillips|
Tom Hanks is suddenly reminding everyone how good of an actor he really can be. While this film is getting a lot of award notice I still find the original story much more interesting than the dramatized one. I am glad to see films like this doing well at the box office as well with critics, about time people started seeing better films.
|2. Blue Jasmine|
Possibly due to it's release way back in July, Blue Jasmine isn't getting a lot of award nominations but plenty of award talk. At least Cate Blanchett is getting her due with award wins. More than likely this will be one of those films I eventually see on Netflix rather than out and buy a ticket.
|3. Machete Kills|
Still not sure how this franchise is still going along but then again I don't hate that it is. Injecting imagination, even in over the top violence, is something more movies could use. I'm also very happy to see Danny Trejo still getting work being a complete badass.
|4. In a World...|
A fictional look into the world of voice overs and voice acting. Often times voice overs aren't noticed and the more you dig into the profession the more interesting it becomes. From the strange fraternity of repeating voice actors doing an insane amount of roles over their lifetime to celebrities you once thought long retired still working hard as some of your favorite cartoon characters.
