Blu-Ray Movies

Red 2 (Dean Parisot) – Retired C.I.A. agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device.

If you’re a fan of the first Red, Red 2 is right up your alley. Everything is bigger, badder, and more ludicrous than the first. The actors (Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker, and John Malkovich) fit well back into the skin of their characters. But let’s say you can’t take  action films with zero consequences and very limited character motivations; Red 2 won’t be for you. Special features are also limited, so this may be just a good rent to kick back and enjoy:

  • The Red 2 Experience
  • Gag Reel
  • Deleted Scenes

Jobs (Joshua Michael Stern) – The story of Steve Jobs’ ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century.

Surprisingly, Ashton Kutcher does a pretty fine job portrayal of Mr. Steve Jobs in this cold, emotionless biopic. The evolution of Jobs’ career path shown in the film is glanced over too quickly, as if we only receive the cliff notes while not fully understanding who he is as a person. There are glimmers of hope, but not enough to bring an emotional resonance to captivate or inspire,; something Jobs did flawlessly. Special features includes:

  • Deleted scenes
  • Feature Commentary with Director Joshua Michael Stern
  • The legacy of Steve Jobs

Getaway (Courtney Solomon) – Former race-car driver Brent Magna is pitted against the clock when his wife is kidnapped by a mysterious villain. He commandeers a young woman’s car and takes her on on a high-speed race against time.

One of the silliest, most nonsensical movies of the year. Getaway layers on stupidity on top of terrible acting on top of head-scratching story beats with one incredible action set-piece that is the icing on the cake. Special features includes:

  • Crash cams
  • Destroying a custom Shelby
  • Metal and asphalt
  • Selena Gomez: on set
  • The train staion

The Canyons; Director’s Cut (Paul Schrader) – When Christian, an LA trust-fund kid with casual ties to Hollywood, learns of a secret affair between Tara and the lead of his film project, Ryan, he spirals out of control, and his cruel mind games escalate into an act of bloody violence.

Not many slipped through the cracks this year, but The Canyons is one that I hadn’t gotten around to seeing. With Lindsay Lohan at bat, I’m not surprised why. The special features are ripe with so much enthusiasm:

  • Creating The Canyons featurette
  • Trailer
