New on DVD (August 26th, 2013)

New On DVD

 

6 new releases to discuss this week, including one that we did a full 3guy review of.

First up we have

The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby

The Hype Train was in full effect for this film but we here at 3guys thought it gained visual stimulus but lacked character development.  You can read our full review @ http://3guys1movie.com/the-great-gatsby-2013/

Next we have

Pain and Gain

Pain & Gain

I love “The Rock” and I am a fan of “Marky Mark” but I have not seen this film and felt like it was going to be a waste of time, maybe I am wrong but it would have to rain for 4 weeks for me to catch this one.

Then we have

Kon Tiki

Kon Tiki

Certainly some interest in seeing this one, as the interwebs have been chattering about this film for sometime.

then we have

The Reluctant Fundamentalist

The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Never heard of this one, starring Kate Hudson and Kiefer Sutherland, where has he been since 24.  If any of our readers have some insight into this one I would appreciate it.

next up is

At Any Price

At Any Price

This one has a star studded cast with Efron, Quaid, not Randy, and Roller Girl (Heather Graham).  A film about farming and racing which  seems to be getting luke warm reviews.

and last but not least

The English Teacher

The English Teacher

A dramedy starring Julianne Moore, Greg Kinnear, and Nathan Lane about, you guessed it, an English Teacher.  I have very little interest in this one.

That’s it that’s all

    Not a single interesting film this week, but my wife would probably enjoy “Great Gatsby.”

      I am not too thrilled either but I think there may be a sleeper in here somewhere.

    I’m a huge Marky Mark fan, and I’ve heard a lot of surprisingly good things about Pain & Gain, so I’ll probably need to check that out at some point (though I’m not exactly the biggest fan of The Rock…).

      Just not sure about that one but I will watch it at some point I am sure. Just not going out of my way, unless of course every one on here raves about it.

  • scottydynamite August 26, 2013, 11:33 am

    I saw the trailer and did not feel the need to see this film, although I like both the actors. Maybe it was the title.

    Looks like some tough ones here Scotty. Apparently the Pain and Gain flick is based on a true story so that may add some intrigue to the draw of this one but probably not enough. Kon Tiki looks like the winner this week….not so big on farming nor racing unfortunately, nor Kate Hudson and I think that I’d rather watch Mr.Clancy in a city hall board meeting than watch The English Teacher and as for The Great Gatsby, after reading the 3Guys review I don’t think that I can spend the time it takes to watch this over stylized version. The movies can only get better……….right?

    • scottydynamite August 27, 2013, 3:05 am

      Those city hall board meetings were certainly entertaining.

    Wow, Gatsby is out already, I might rent it just to see the visuals and enjoyed the songs, but yeah, it’s definitely style over substance. Pain and Gain looks like it could fun, I might give it a rent.

    The Reluctant Fundamentalist actually makes my top 10 of the first half of 2013, here’s my full review:

    • scottydynamite August 27, 2013, 3:05 am

      Sounds good Ruth, I may have to move that one up my queue.

  • Marilyn Armstrong August 26, 2013, 8:48 pm

    Of the bunch, I want to see Gatsby, more out of curiosity than real interest. I would be surprised if anyone ever makes a satisfactory version of it. The book doesn’t really lend itself to becoming a good movie. Too cerebral.

  • Marilyn Armstrong August 26, 2013, 8:51 pm

    I am assuming Kon Tiki is based on the book?? I haven’t been following it. It’s a great story. True story. The old version of it wasn’t bad. Not great, but not bad. More modern camera techniques could conceivably improve it, if they have a script to go with it. I’m just wary of remakes. They are usually bad, but every once in a while, they surprise me.

  • Marilyn Armstrong August 27, 2013, 8:44 am

    I’ll wait to hear a few reviews, but you’re right. It is intriguing.
