The Host - Open Road Pictures - Rated PG-13
The Host starts out its Invasion of the Body Snatchers tale with aliens that look like a cross between a glowing shrimp and a dust bunny, which, once inserted into the unknowing human host cause said host to have glowing eyes. But glowing shrimp dust bunnies just aren't that intimidating. Extras include deleted scenes, featurettes and commentaries.
Spring Breakers - Lionsgate - Rated R
Spring Breakers is a largely plotless, surreal film that seems to be an excuse for James Franco to overact and put his hands and other body parts all over former Disney stars. But the film, in a word I overheard as I left the theater is "stupid." Special features include a three part documentary, deleted scenes, commentary, featurettes and more.
Robot Chicken DC Comics Special - Warner Brothers - Not Rated
This is funny stuff! Robot Chicken DC Comics Special skewers all of your favorite DC comics heroes and some that aren’t your faves. With over two hours of bonus features including outtakes, commentaries, four featurettes, deleted sequences and more. It's My Pick of the Week!
Tyler Perry's Temptation - Lionsgate - Rated PG-13
Tyler Perry's Temptation is one of the worst movies of the year…an unintentional comedy that had me in stitches. It's laughable over and over with a stupid, hilarious ending making this the funniest Tyler Perry movie yet! And not a single laugh was intentional. There are no bonus features.
Unforgettable Season One - Paramount - Not Rated
She can't forget anything. And she is on a team of homicide solving detectives. Season One of Unforgettable includes 22 episodes on six discs along with three featurettes, commentary, a gag reel and deleted scenes.
