Movies on Blu-Ray

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (Shawn Levy) Rated PG [97 min] – Larry leaves New York City for London on a quest to save the magic before it is gone forever. Starring Robin Williams, Dan Stevens, Ben Stiller, and Rebel Wilson

I did not get a chance to check this movie out, but it looks like your run-of-the-mill sequels that was just squeezes the last bit of life a franchise has just to say they made a trilogy. Sort of like Brendan Fraser’s Mummy series. I’m sure they try to insert something meaningful here, but it becomes too muddled in all the wacky hijinks. And I’m sure there are a ton of wacky hijinks with Rebel Wilson now involved. At least there’s a lot of special features if you decide to get it:

  • Seven Deleted and Extended Scenes
  • Improv, Absurdity and Cracking Up – The Comedy of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
  • Two Galleries
  • Bonus Digital HD Movie
  • The Theory of Relativity
  • Becoming Laaa
  • A Day in the Afterlife
  • The Home of History: Behind the Scenes of The British Museum
  • Fight at the Museum
  • Creating Visual Effects
  • Audio Commentary by Shawn Levy

The Breakfast Club (30th Anniversary Edition) (John Hughes) Rated R [97 min] – Five high school students, all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought. Starring Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Paul Gleeso, Anthony Michael Hall, and Ally Sheedy

A true classic. ‘Nuff said. Special features included are:

  • Digitally Remastered and Fully Restored From 35mm Original Film Elements
  • Accepting the Facts: The Breakfast Club Trivia Track
  • Sincerely Yours
  • The Most Convenient Definitions: The Origins of The Brat Pack
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Feature Commentary with Anthony Michael Hall and Judd Nelson

The Sound of Music (50th Anniversary Edition) (Robert Wise) Rated G [174 min] – A woman leaves an Austrian convent to become a governess to the children of a Naval officer widower. Starring Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, and Eleanor Parker

Another classic that is on its own level because it’s The Sound of Music. Again, no explanation needed here. Now this doesn’t boast as many big extras and trinkets as the 45th anniversary set, but this 50th anniversary 5-disc set has a good amount of special features if you’re into this movie and that sorta thing:

  • Feature Film Remastered in 1080p Hi-Def with 7.1 DTS-HD Sound
  • Your Favorite Things: An Interactive Celebration — All-New Immersive Viewing Experience with Behind-the-Scenes Images, On-Screen Lyrics, Trivia Track and Location Quiz

  • Vintage Rodgers & Hammerstein and The Sound of Music Programs

  • NEW hour-long documentary THE SOUND OF A CITY: JULIE ANDREWS RETURNS TO SALZBURG

TV on Blu-Ray

The Legend of Korra – Book Four: Balance (Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko) The season takes place largely in the Earth Kingdom, one of the four major nations in the setting of the series, and also depicts the re-emergence of airbending among people of other nations. Toph’s eldest daughter, Lin Beifong, and the now elderly Zuko, a character from the original series, are among the season’s supporting characters, as are “the Red Lotus”, a group of dangerous anarchists led by the new airbender Zaheer who wants to overthrow the world’s governments and the Avatar. Starring Janet Varney, P.J. Byrne, and David Faustino

Now that the show has wrapped up, I can finally binge it all in one sitting and stop the embarrassment that is my life in which I have yet to see this series. Special features included are:

  • Audio Commentaries (Standard and BD Exclusive Tracks)
  • The Legend of Puppetbender Presents “The Making of a Legend: The Untold Story – Part Il” (Blu-ray Exclusive Animated Short)
  • Legend of Korra New York Comic-Con Panel (Blu-ray Exclusive)

Video Games

DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition (Available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) Dante is caught between two worlds — the world of humans, and the darker, evil world of demons. The child of an angel and a demon, he knows he’s neither human nor demon — he’s an outcast. After a lifetime of being tormented by demons, Dante is a man with no respect for authority or society in general. Join Dante on his mission through Limbo.

The only time I’ve played a piece of this game is as Dante in Marvel Versus Capcom 3, which is a really great game. But for DmC fans, this looks like a really great remake that gets a rightful remaster that it deserves. Key features of this Definitive Edition are:

  • Includes all of the stylish action gameplay from the original and all previously released downloadable content, including the “Vergil’s Downfall” campaign, as well as offering brand new modes and additional content for new and exciting challenges
  • Retells the origin story of Dante — a young man who is caught between two worlds — against a contemporary backdrop
  • Watch as Dante slowly discovers and learns what it means to be the child of both a demon and an angel thanks largely to the help of his twin brother, Vergil, who is the leader of the anti-establishment group “The Order”
  • Play as Dante’s twin brother in the new Vergil’s Bloody Palace Mode, where you can throw down the gauntlet against 60 waves of fierce enemies
  • Up the ante with new extra-challenging modes, including Gods Must Die Mode, Must Style Mode and Hardcore Mode, and increase gameplay speeds by 20% in Turbo Mode for even faster, more intense combat
  • Garb Dante and Vergil in new costumes inspired by classic DmC character designs
  • Utilized fan feedback to rebalance the combat system and enemies, making a variety of gameplay adjustments, including optional manual lock-on for classic DmC fans
  • Delve into sharp, realistic action with graphics tailored for next-gen systems, running at a smooth 60 fps with 1080p resolution
