Movies on Blu-Ray

The Wolf of Wall Street (Martin Scorsese) Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stockbroker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, and Matthew McConaughey

The definitive movie of excessive behavior. Martin Scorsese tops himself with one of the most daring movies of his career. Starring an all-star cast of hooligans, The Wolf of Wall Street is enjoyable from beginning to end despite its three hour run time. This movie is not for the faint of heart. BUY IT! The only special feature included is:

  • The Wolf Pack—Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and other cast and crew discuss the incredible journey of making the film. Follow them as they reveal the real story behind Jordan Belfort’s rise to power and how they depicted his world of lavish excess, perseverance and ultimately betrayal.

Delivery Man (Ken Scott) An affable underachiever finds out he’s fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity. Starring Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, and Jack Reynor

Delivery Man exists in this limbo where it is not funny enough to be a great comedy nor is it have the amount of heart to be a sweet, memorable drama. With that said, the chinks in the armor and the dull sense of tone makes Delivery Man just an average film fighting against other average films seeking attention from bored audiences. NETFLIX IT!(Check out my full review) The special features included are:

  • Building family – explore the challenges and fun of creating this modern family, and learn how the 142 young actors cast as biological siblings bonded both during and after production
  • Vince Vaughn: off the cuff
  • Bloopers
  • Deleted scene

Walking with Dinosaurs (Barry Cook and Neil Nightingale) See and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth, in a story where an underdog dino triumphs to become a hero for the ages. Starring Charlie Rowe, Karl Urban, Angourie Rice, and John Leguizamo

Walking with Dinosaurs is a slog of a film. It is such a tedious, bore that the only saving grace of this film would be to have zero voice over for these characters. The animation is decent, but the story and the voice acting is atrocious. Watch it on mute if you’re forced at gun point to check it out. SKIP IT! Special features included are:

  • Ultimate Dino Guide
  • Interactive Map
  • Match the Call game
  • Brainosaur Trivia Track
  • Nickelodeon Orange Carpet Dino Rap

The Great Beauty (Criterion Collection) (Paolo Sorrentino) Jep Gambardella has seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades, but after his 65th birthday and a shock from the past, Jep looks past the nightclubs and parties to find a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty. Starring Toni Servillo, Carlo Verdone, Sabrina Ferilli, and Carlo Buccirosso

The Oscar winner for Best Foreign Feature Film is now available to check out. I have not seen it myself, but I would assume it would have to be good to win the Oscar and receive a Criterion Collection release. The special features included are:

  • Conversation between Sorrentino and Italian cultural critic Antonio Monda
  • New interview with actor Toni Servillo
  • New interview with screenwriter Umberto Contarello
  • Deleted scenes
  • Trailer
  • New English subtitle translation
  • One Blu-ray and two DVDs, with all content available in both formats
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Philip Lopate

The Past (Asghar Farhadi) An Iranian man deserts his French wife and her two children to return to his homeland. Meanwhile, his wife starts up a new relationship, a reality her husband confronts upon his wife’s request for a divorce. Starring Bérénice Bejo, Tahar Rahim, and Ali Mosaffa

Golden Globe nominated for Best Foreign Feature, The Past is yet another film that slipped by me in that category. The premise sounds interesting and I wouldn’t mind checking it out. The special features included are:

  • Audio Commentary
  • Making The Past
  • Directors Guild of America Q&A with Asghar Farhadi

Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery (Brandon Vietti) When Shaggy and Scooby win tickets to WrestleMania, the entire gang travels in the Mystery Machine to WWE City to attend the epic event. However, when a mysterious ghostly bear appears and threatens to ruin the show, Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred work with WWE Superstars to solve the case. Starring Matthew Lillard, Frank Welker, John Cena, Sin Cara, Grey DeLisle, Vince McMahon, Paul Levesque, and AJ Lee.

I grew up watching any iteration of Scooby-Doo I could, and I watched the WWF WWE as well. Worlds collided when I had the chance to review this title. Fits of nostalgia and glee hit me like a Stone Cold Stunner. Shutting off my brain, I knew going in I had to view this from a child’s perspective for the entertainment value. Undeniably, Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery is a harmless, inoffensive, and silly movie that hits all the right notes. It brings the classic Scooby-Doo tone, infuses some modern lingo, and invites the electric world of WWE to join in on the adventure.

Aside from the obvious illogical super human feats of strength John Cena and other WWE Superstars possess in this cartoon, and Matthew Lillard’s terrible attempt at voicing Shaggy, I found watching this movie to be fairly entertaining. Velma brings in some nice educational moments and there is a decent life lesson to digest as well. My favorite part is just the voice acting from the WWE Superstars because you know they had a lot of fun just getting into the characters we all know and love. BUY IT FOR YOUR KIDS IF THEY ARE FANS OF BOTH! Special features included are:

  • Behind the scenes with Scooby-Doo and the WWE Gang
  • Wrestle Maniacs: Bonus A Pup Named Scooby-Doo Episode

Television on Blu-Ray

Key and Peele (Seasons 1 and 2) (Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele) Project sees Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in front of a live studio audience bantering about a topic weaved between filmed shorts and sketches. Starring Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, and Ron Artest

I’ve got a few sketches here and there, and from what I’ve seen I have enjoyed Key and Peele’s humor. It isn’t as quality as the Chappelle Show, but they do have their own unique brand and I respect them for their hard work. Special features included are:

  • Outtakes
  • Poolside Interview
  • Obama’s Anger Translator: A collection of the Obama/Luther sketches
  • Key & Peele at the South Beach Comedy Festival

Veep: The Complete Second Season (Armando Iannucci) Centers on former Senator Selina Meyer who finds being Vice President of the United States is nothing like she expected and everything everyone ever warned about. Starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Anna Chlumsky, Tony Hale, and Reid Scott

I haven’t had the chance to check this show out yet, but from all of the awards noms and other buzz I would definitely like to check this show out when I can find time. Special features included are:

  • Audio Commentaries
  • Deleted Scenes

Video Games
