What’s on DVD Tuesday, January 24, 2012?!
At first I did not know what to expect from this film, but after watching, I realized how much into the movie I was in. This movie was awesome, and it makes the perfect family movie. You will, laugh, scream, yell “Go Atom”, from the very edge of your seat. It will get you emotional at times, but I can sincerely say I can watch this movie again and again.
Sometime in the not-too-distant future, boxing has been outlawed and replaced by fighting matches with robots. Big robots. Hulking, rock ’em, sock ’em mechanical robots. But if those machines are cutting edge, Real Steel sticks to an old-fashioned style of storytelling, with a tale of a down-and-out fight manager (Hugh Jackman) looking for a good ‘bot to get back in the game, and get back out of debt.

50/50 was a very interesting movie, probably because it was inspired by a true story. I enjoy Seth Rogen comedies and even though 50/50 had its funny moments, I felt weird laughing at the jokes, due to the sensitive nature of the disease. The actors all did an amazing job, which made the film more enjoyable and somewhat less weird.
Diagnosed with spinal cancer, 27-year-old Adam (Gordon-Levitt) navigates the road to recovery with the sometimes overbearing support of his crude best friend (Rogen), his smothering mother (Anjelica Huston) and an inexperienced therapist (Anna Kendrick). Inspired by a true story, 50/50 is an honest, yet hysterically funny, account of a young man’s journey toward healing.
Paranormal Activity 3
This is one of those movies that will take some guts for me to watch it, I guess that makes it a really good scary movie.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 takes audiences back to where it all began with the masterminds behind the first two films returning to craft a hauntingly chilling follow up. Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the filmmakers who created the unsettling sensation Catfish, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 achieved the biggest theatrical debut for a horror film ever, ultimately earning more than $200 million worldwide.
