New on DVD January 7, 2013

8 new releases this week and sadly I do not have too much information on many.

First up is

Dredd

Remake of the Sylvester Stallone classic this film looked like it had some decent upgrades but the original did not knock your socks off so this one probably won’t either.

Next up we have

Frankenweenie

A full length Tim Burton feature that was spawned by a short done by the same director years ago.  We did a full 3guys review for this one that you can read @ http://3guys1movie.com/frankenweenie/  We all enjoyed this film.

then we have

House at the End of the Street

With a couple of hotties like Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Shue you would figure this movie might carry some horror weight but from all I read it does not.  How many horror movies have these types of titles?  A little creativity would be nice in that respect.

next up we have

Hit & Run

Starring the handsome one from The Hangover (Bradley Cooper) this comedy looks like it falls flat with veiwers.  Looks like a road trip comedy with flat tires.

then we have

Stolen

This film star Nicholas Cage who will do any film for a buck very bad reviews and looks like yet another terrible film by a once sought after Hollywood Star.  The picture alone and the catch phrases on it are terrible enough for me never to see this film.

next up we have

Samsara

I know absolutely nothing about this film but it looks interesting.  I would appreciate any words from our readers about this film and what you thought.

and then

Compliance

This sound slike it could one of those films that snuck by you and I and actually be really good, just saying. Listed as mystery/suspense.  Compliance is getting solid reviews and is pretty fresh.  Maybe a hidden gem and you know how movie fans love discovering the hidden gem.

and finally we have

Touchback

A time travelling football star starring Kurt Russell, I will pass.

That’s it that’s all

    Dredd is actually pretty damn awesome, I was shocked at how good it was and I even got the soundtrack. I really thought it would be a boring version of the original film, but it is filled with action and does a great job of world building despite a low budget. I suggest checking it out ASAP.

    I will have to check that out, is it the same basic story or did they approach it like Total Recall and just use the premise but rewrite the script?

    I reviewed Compliance in Sept 2012 wordschat.WordPress.com/compliance. It is a gripping drama based on true events. Samsara I vaguely remember as being about kids being kids. Charming in a good way.

    Dredd was actually really good. Surprised me, big time. In fact, I just got pissed that I didnt include it in my “Most Surprising” list. DAMN IT!! LOL

    House at the End of the Street is as bad as you’ve heard and worse. Seriously, stay away. Its horrendous.

    I might snag Frankenweenie if I can find it on sale. My boy enjoyed it quite a bit. I wouldn’t mind checking out Dredd if it was streaming or I could snag it at Red Box.

      Jonas liked that one and my other boys have yet to see it so it will definately be watched in the coming weeks.

  • Sir Phobos January 8, 2013, 3:26 pm

    Holy God, Touchback looked awful. I think I have to go watch Big Trouble just to make up for that.

    • scottydynamite January 8, 2013, 4:04 pm

      Yeah that certainly looks like a film worth skipping and never discussing again.

  • ckckred January 8, 2013, 3:34 pm

    I loved Baraka, so I think I’ll buy a copy of Samsara. I missed in theaters and I really want to see it.

    • scottydynamite January 8, 2013, 4:04 pm

      Looks visually stunning, I have not seen Baraka or Samsara but they look interesting.

    Dude….seriously you have to check out Dredd. I loved it….even raved about it.
