New on DVD (June 17th, 2013)

New On DVD

6 new releases to discuss with a couple I had wanted to see but didn’t.

First up we have

Jack the Giant Slayer

Jack the Giant Slayer

Jack and the Beanstalk meets Clash of the Titans seems to be what this film is, I have yet to see it and shocked Ewan McGregor was in the film, I am somewhat intrigued with this one even though it looks like it could totally blow (eighties terminology for suck).

next up we have

21 and Over

21 And Over

Straight A student turns 21 and decides to do the wrong thing for a change, weak concept and I imagine weak ass film.

and then we have

Movie 43

Movie 43

Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman, and Naomi Watts star in this film which I know nothing about and that is why I probably will not see it.  Any of our readers see this?   What was it about and how was it?

next up is

The Last Exorcism Part 2

The Last Exorcism Part II

Redundant title probably means redundant film, nuff said.

and then

Stoker

Stoker

This film looks interesting and has some good star power, Nicole Kidman, who should not get anymore collegen in those lips and face lifts, Mia Wasikowska, and a blast from the past Dermot Mulroney.  Billed as a dram/horror/mystery/suspense I am looking forward to giving this a watch.

and finally

Quartet

Quartet

Never heard of this one, about retired musicians and thats all I got.  Any of our readers suggest this one?

That’s it that’s all

    I’ve seen Movie 43 and I’m still not entirely sure what it was about, lol. Basically an excuse to push the boundaries, and while not a laugh out loud riot, I do admit that it’s an intriguing watch just to see how degradingly far they actually got some of these A-list actors to go. Not worth going out of your way to see, however.

      Sounds just about right, thanks for your input.

  • Adam June 17, 2013, 5:24 pm

    I want to check out Stoker

    Do not bother seeing Movie 43. Although I did like Naomi Watts in it. This Is The End seems to be a movie in a similar vein that actually is good.

    I also want to see Stoker so bad, and Quartet.

      Teddy, Stoker seems to be the best prospect. Thanks for your input.

    Stoker is great — one of my favorite films so far this year.

    Might give Quartet a look at some point, but I can’t say I’m interested in the others.

      Eric it seems everyone is on the Stoker bus, glad to see you loved it and it certainly is on my list.

  • Chris June 18, 2013, 5:53 am

    Hey Scott, I think I’m the only human on earth that enjoyed Movie 43. lol. Stoker was excellent!!!

    • scottydynamite June 18, 2013, 8:51 am

      More stoker love and a little movie 43 love…

    Stoker is pretty decent. One of the most bizarre, messed up movies I’ve ever seen. Lots of weird eroticism and sexuality going on. It’s one of those slow burn thrillers that’s fun until is over explains itself. Love the strange visual continuity in the film. Worth a watch I think.

    Quartet is a really good time. Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut is an impressive one. Great camerawork, cinematography, and music. A charming story with sympathetic characters. It leans pretty heavily on Billy Connelly playing a pervy old man, which is hilarious for a while, but starts to get a bit tired toward the end.

      Evan, thanks for your input and glad to hear quartet was at least interesting, also your supportive of Stoker as it seems everyone, can’t wait to check it out.

  • Cindy Bruchman June 18, 2013, 9:21 am

    Quartet has a great cast and Dustin Hoffman directing. It’s worth the watch!

    • scottydynamite June 18, 2013, 10:08 am

      I would certainly like to see Hoffman’s directorial debut.
