Out this week on Blu-Ray and DVD 5.4.10

Trailer DVDBlu-ray by Mars

Hey Tyrants! Ok first off let me say that this week I was not particularly interested with what was being released but I did watch one of the movies just so I could give you all a opinion/review. I will throw the bigger titles out along with their trailers so that you can figure out if any of these are for you.


Movie director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) is in the throes of a midlife crisis, struggling to write his film while juggling relationships with wife Luisa (Marion Cotillard), mistress Carla (Oscar nominee Penélope Cruz), muse Claudia (Nicole Kidman), producer Lilli (Judi Dench) and his mother (Sophia Loren). Rob Marshall (Chicago) helms this Golden Globe-nominated musical based on the Broadway smash; Stacy Ferguson and Kate Hudson co-star.

Starring: Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard
Director: Rob Marshall

I did want to see this and all the actors and actresses make it look like it could be amazing but I am a little weary of the musical part of it. I have liked musicals in the past like Sweeny Todd and Repo! The Genetic Opera so I very well may give this one a try. Daniel Day Lewis is in my favorite movie of all time. Can you all guess which movie that is?


Leap Year 

Anna (Amy Adams) chooses February 29 to propose marriage to her "perfect" boyfriend, Jeremy (Adam Scott), sure he'll accept because of an Irish custom. But after meeting charming innkeeper Declan (Matthew Goode) en route to Dublin, Anna must evaluate her original plans. Anand Tucker directs this charming romantic comedy about finding what one really wants in the most unexpected places. John Lithgow co-stars.

Starring: Amy Adams, Matthew Goode
Director: Anand Tucker

Ok I did watch this one and it was so-so. Predictable and I didn't really like Amy Adams character much I just wanted to punch her sometimes. Definitely a chick flick. 


Tooth Fairy

When minor-league hockey player Derek Thompson -- who has a penchant for knocking out his opponents' teeth every time he plays -- disillusions a fan, he is sentenced to a stint for one week as a bona fide, tutu-clad, real-life tooth fairy. Soon, Derek is inspired to rekindle his youthful dreams. Ashley Judd portrays his love interest, Carly, in this family comedy starring The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson.

Starring: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Ashley Judd
Director: Michael Lembeck

The Rock is hot normally I would have watched it just for that reason but lack of time got the best of me but my boss said it was hilarious. 


Flicka 2

Skateboarder Carrie McLaughlin (Tammin Sursok) feels as if she's living out a prison sentence when she's sent West to stay at her father's horse ranch, far from the big-city lights she's used to. But she finds unexpected friendship in an untamed horse named Flicka. Patrick Warburton, Clint Black and Emily Tennant co-star in director Michael Damian's updated adaptation of the classic 1941 novel My Friend Flicka.

Starring: Patrick Warburton, Tammin Sursok
Director: Michael Damian

Looks like a good family movie. Probably not as good as the first which I did see but I bet it is still probably worth a watch.


Preacher's Kid

Yearning for new experiences, Angie (Letoya Luckett) abandons her preacher father, joins a touring gospel show and starts dating a handsome actor. But when her dreams of stardom stall, Angie struggles to maintain her faith, overcome her pride and find her way home. Inspired by the biblical parable of the prodigal son, this touching drama also stars Clifton Powell, Gregory Alan Williams and Sharif Atkins. Stan Foster writes and directs.

Starring: Letoya Luckett, Durrell Babbs
Director: Stan Foster

Small family title. If you are looking to rent it I would suggest getting there early cause I don't foresee them getting very many copies of this movie.
