Movies on Blu-ray

Pan (Joe Wright) Rated PG [111 min] – 12-year-old orphan Peter is spirited away to the magical world of Neverland, where he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny — to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan Starring Levi Miller, Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, and Rooney Mara [Watch the Trailer]

If Pan didn’t have one of the greatest campiest, most over the top, hilarious entrance for a movie villain ever, I would have never have given it a second thought. But the beautiful thing about Pan is in how outrageously bonkers and terrible it is. It’s not a movie that’s so bad it’s good; more like it’s so bad that you can’t believe veteran director Joe Wright (Atonement; Pride and Prejudice; Hanna) made such a steaming pile of garbage. The man knows how to make a coherent movie, and Pan is a disaster. The special features don’t even help to explain what the hell happened. It is a gorgeous and colorful film, but everything else is just bad form.

Special features include:

  • Director’s Commentary
  • Never Grow Up: The Legend of Pan
  • The Boy Who Would Be Pan
  • The Scoundrels of Neverland
  • Wondrous Realms

Dragon Blade (Daniel Lee) Rated R [127 min] – When corrupt Roman leader Tiberius arrives with a giant army to claim the Silk Road, Huo An teams up his army with an elite Legion of defected Roman soldiers led by General Lucius to protect his country and his new friends. Starring Jackie Chan, John Cusack, and Adrien Brody

Speaking of bonkers. From the deliciously out of place casting with John Cusack and Adrian Brody to the messy storytelling, Dragon Blade is a movie that’s so bad it’s good, to some degree. Dragon Blad is also host to one of the worst child actors I’ve ever seen. The child’s presence is enough to make my skin crawl and eyes bleed. The special features are mostly enjoyable thanks to Cusack soaking up the ridiculousness of it all and Brody not giving a single f*ck. There is one moment in the film that made me believe Chan delivered one of his best performances to date, but then the end just completely eradicates that idea.

Special features include:

  • “Behind the Scenes of Dragon Blade” Featurette
  • Extended Interviews with Cast & Crew
  • Music Videos featuring Jackie Chan

12 Rounds 3: Lockdown (Stephen Reynolds) Rated R [90 min] – Lockdown Follows a police officer who returns to duty after recovering from a gun shot wound to discover incriminating evidence of illegal activities against those closest to him. Starring Jonathan Good, Roger R. Cross, and Daniel Cudmore

I’d love to know who asked for this sequel, let alone the second film of this makeshift franchise. The premise of the “12 rounds” is painstakingly hilarious to begin with, but to switch up the formula from a 12 round game of thrills in the first two films and to now have the protagonist equipped with 12 rounds in his gun is a knee-slapper. It does lead to a faster pace of action and builds tension knowing the limited amount of ammo, but the fact that Dean Ambrose counts his rounds out loud is nauseating. If the movie didn’t feel so contrived and the acting still as wood, there might have been a decent movie somewhere in here. They would probably call it Die Hard

Special features include:

  • “Resourceful Adversary” Featurette
  • “Filming a Firefight” Featurette
