 How is the week going people? My last month or so has been very hectic and I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. I suppose I would rather have a hectic life then a boring life though. This last week I gained the power to tweet via cell phone woot! Hopefully I can come up with some more interesting stuff to say now haha. Having been cell-phone-less for years I am having to readjust. Meaning my phone rang yesterday and I did not hear it but the person I was with did and asked if I was going to answer it. Doh. Anyways....

Oh man! So many great shows releasing to DVD this week! Almost all of them I actually watch too which is cool. Let's start with a few movies releasing.

 

Harry Brown

When a crew of drug-dealing gang members takes the life of his only friend, Leonard (David Bradley), retired Marine and widower Harry Brown (Michael Caine) decides to take the law into his own hands -- but his old-school training might be over matched. Helmed by first-time feature director Daniel Barber, this gritty vigilante thriller set in England also stars Emily Mortimer, Iain Glen, Jack O'Connell, Ben Drew, Joseph Gilgun and Liam Cunningham.

Cast: Michael Caine, Emily Mortimer
Director: Daniel Barber

Ok this movie starts off very slow and depressing but it ends up being pretty bad-ass. Worth the watch for sure. 


 

Marmaduke

When Phil and Debbie Winslow (Lee Pace and Judy Greer) relocate from their native Kansas to the sunny climes of Orange County, their big-hearted, havoc-wreaking Great Dane (voiced by Owen Wilson) gets a taste of the dog's life, California-style. Featuring the voices of Emma Stone, George Lopez and Steve Coogan, this family comedy blends live action and computer animation to bring the-beloved, if slobbery, comic-strip mutt to life.

Cast: Owen Wilson, Emma Stone
Director: Tom Dey

Did not watch it but got input from a co-worker that it's a great family flick. 

 

Flash forward: Season 1

This intriguing dramatic sci-fi series centers on a mysterious incident that causes all of mankind to black out for two minutes and 17 seconds, during which time the victims see premonitions about their future lives. Inspired by the award-winning novel of the same name by author Robert J. Sawyer, the series boasts a top-notch ensemble cast that includes Joseph Fiennes, Courtney B. Vance, John Cho and Sonya Walger.

Cast: Brian O'Byrne, Christine Woods
Director: David S. Goyer

I love this show! It's smart, funny, well acted, well written (mostly) and gripping. Unfortunately it's not one of those shows that you can just watch randomly and be able to follow what is going on which I think is one of the main causes of it's cancellation. Still worth watching the first season though! 

 

Parenthood: Season 1

When struggling single mom Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham) moves back home to Berkeley, Calif., with her two surly teens in tow, she reunites with her three adult siblings who are also confronting the challenges of parenthood in the new millennium. Even Sarah's own parents are discovering that the job never ends. Peter Krause, Monica Potter and Craig T. Nelson co-star in this dramatic series based on Ron Howard's hit 1989 film of the same name.

Cast: Peter Krause, Monica Potter
 

At first for some reason I thought this was suppoosed to be a comedy but after watching the first ep I realized it definitely not supposed to be a comedy haha. I kept watching though and I am glad I did. It's a heartwarming show that makes me want a closer relationship with my siblings (I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters) after watching it.

 

The Vampire Diaries: Season 1

Elena (Nina Dobrev) falls for two brothers and discovers that they share an ancient secret: Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) are vampires who've been fighting for centuries and are now battling to gain control of Elena's town -- and her soul. Soon, Elena learns about their deadly needs and the secret that sparked their bitter blood feud in this supernatural series based on the popular novels by L.J. Smith.

Cast: Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder
Director: Marcos Siega

I love this show no matter how many say I am a dork for liking it.

 

Sons of Anarchy: Season 2

In the second season of this hit series set in California, Charlie Hunnam returns as Jax Teller, a father torn between devotion to his young child and loyalty to his vigilante biker gang, the Sons of Anarchy. As Jax's parents (Katey Sagal and Ron Perlman) lead the gang deeper into violence, the club encounters new foes, including white supremacist Ethan Zobelle (Adam Arkin) and deadly rival A.J. Weston (Henry Rollins).

Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal
