What’s on DVD Tuesday, May 21, 2013?!


Beautiful Creatures

I loved Beautiful Creatures, and I was wondering when it was coming out on Blu-Ray, well it has arrived and I’m excited. Beautiful Creatures is also a book, maybe you’ll like to read the book before watching the film.

A supernatural love story set in the South, “Beautiful Creatures” tells the tale of two lovers, Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lena (Alice Englert). Together they uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history and their town. Lena’s family are Casters who have the ability to read minds, have power over the elements and hold other supernatural powers. Their romance is threatened by the darkness of her family and at age 16,  Lena will have to make a decision that will change her life forever.

The Last Stand

After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy.

Side Effects

This is one of those films, where you don’t know what to expect. I still can’t say if I liked or didn’t like this movie.

SIDE EFFECTS is a psychological thriller/whodunnit, starring Rooney Mara as a woman whose dependence on a new medication for anxiety prescribed by her psychiatrist (Jude Law) unravels the life she shares with her husband (Channing Tatum). Soon a chain of events are set in motion that lead to murder and paranoia, with more than one unexpected twist along the way.


Parker (Jason Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don’t steal from people who can’t afford it and don’t hurt people who don’t deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead. Determined to make sure they regret it, Parker tracks them to Palm Beach, playground of the rich and famous, where the crew is planning their biggest heist ever. Donning the disguise of a rich Texan, Parker takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Jennifer Lopez), a savvy insider, who’s short on cash, but big on looks, smarts and ambition. (Amazon)
