Power Rangers: Samurai - Buy from Amazon: The Team Unites and A New Enemy
The latest incarnation of this franchise is the nineteenth series to bare the Power Rangers
name. How well does it compare to previous incarnations like RPM
? Check out our review
for my opinion.
Project X - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack
A movie about a party gone wild. That's it. The reviews were terrible with a lot of critics giving the film aggressively negative reviews. Anyone old enough to see R-rated movies will be old enough to have seen much better films in this genre. Additionally, the extras are terrible and even though the Blu-ray has a couple more short featurettes, it isn't worth paying $7 more for. Skip it.
Radio Rebel - Buy from Amazon
A Disney Channel TV movie starring Debby Ryan, who has been in a few other Disney projects. Her she plays a high school girl who is incredibly shy, but who has a secret. Outside of school, she's the DJ on a popular pirate radio station. I'm not in the target audience, but it could be a good show compared to the average Disney Channel production, but I will have to wait for the screener to arrive to be sure.
Seeking Justice - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Nicolas Cage is in serious need of career rehabilitation. I still like the actor and I've liked some of his recent films. However, he's making too make bad films like this one and his box office drawing power is shrinking. This film opened in a couple of hundred theaters, but only managed to earn just over $400,000, in total. An opening that bad would have been below the Mendoza line. This explains why there is only a couple featurettes on the DVD and Blu-ray for extras. Unless you are a hardcore fan of the cast, or of Revenge / Vigilante films in general, you can skip this one.
Tyler Perry's House of Payne: Volume Nine Buy from Amazon
Not a fan of the show, but clearly it has a loyal audience if it has lasted this long.
Wanderlust - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack
This was a good movie, but not a great movie, at least with critics. It came within one vote of earning overall positive reviews, but it failed to reach the top five during its opening and very, very quickly disappeared from theaters. The extras on the DVD are excellent with an audio commentary track, deleted / alternative scenes, and lots of behind-the-scene featurettes. The Blu-ray includes the extended version of the movie that has more to it. It's worth picking up and worth paying extra for.
Web Therapy: The Complete First Season - Buy from Amazon
This show is based on a web series that featured Lisa Kudrow as a really bad therapist who only dealt with clients online. The original series won awards; however, a lot of critics are saying that the translation from 3-minute web series to 30-minute sitcom was not a smart way to go. The show just works better in small doses.
Wilfred: Season One - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
Elijah Wood stars as a man who, at the beginning of the series, is trying to commit suicide by a drug overdose. However, he's interrupted by his new neighbor, who wants him to look after her dog for a little bit. Her dog, Wilfred, is a man in a dog suit who speaks English. At least that's how Elijah sees him. Then again, he had just taken a lot of drugs. Everyone else sees Wilfred as just any other dog. It is a strange premise for a show, but I'm really looking forward to seeing it. Unfortunately, the screener is late. I do have high expectations and it could be Pick of the Week material.
WWE: Over the Limit 2012 - Buy from Amazon
The latest WWE release. These are generally the best selling "Sports" DVDs around, but I'm not a fan of wrestling, so I can't comment on the quality.
