42 - Warner Brothers - Rated PG-13
Chadwick Boseman is wonderful as Jackie Robinson in the terrific biopic 42. It's not a home run, but a solid triple. Bonus features include a featurette. The blu-ray adds two featurettes.
Evil Dead - Sony - Rated R
The remake of Evil Dead, has better effects, is more serious, and has the same basic story but twists it up. What it doesn't have is Bruce Campbell. Goopy, gloppy, and splatterific, it's a lot of fun on its own. Extras include commentary and five very entertaining featurettes…It's My Pick of the Week!
Bullet to the Head - Warner Brothers - Rated R
Bullet to the Head stars Sylvester Stallone in a movie that is a throwback to the action movies of the 80's. This absurd buddy cop / assassin flick is high on body count and low on smarts. Special Features include a featurette.
Damages, Final Season - Sony Not Rated
The final season of the FX legal series Damages comes to DVD with ten episodes on three discs. The series stars Glenn Close along with Rose Byrne, Ryan Phillippe, and Jenna Elfman. Extras include deleted scenes and outtakes.
Erased - Anchor Bay - Rated R
Aaron Eckhart stars in the above average European thriller Erased. Reunited with his daughter in Europe, an American ex - CIA agent is targeted for elimination. Extras include a featurette.
Regular Show - The Complete First & Second Seasons - Warner Brothers - Not Rated
The Cartoon Network's Regular Show is weird and somewhat amusing -anything but regular. The first two seasons come to disc with 40 episodes along with commentary, an unaired pilot and much more.
