cinderella movie 2015

Movies on Blu-ray

Cinderella (Kenneth Branagh) Rated PG [112 min] – When her father unexpectedly passes away, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and her daughters. Never one to give up hope, Ella’s fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger in the woods. Starring Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden, and Helena Bonham Carter (Watch the trailer)

I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw the live-action adaptation of Cinderella in theaters earlier this year. After my first viewing, I rewatched the original 1950 animated film and was shocked at how bad it is. It’s not that it’s too childish, there just isn’t much of a plot or story. Cinderella’s arc in the animated feature is very linear and the movie focuses more on the mice wanting to protect and help Cindy from her step family. What I enjoy about the live-action adaptation is that it puts more weight and humanity into the character of Cinderella. There’s more to resonate with her and more to the story than just love at first sight. It’s still somewhat a part of the story, but Kenneth Brannagh makes it at least seem like the Prince finds more to like about Cinderella than just her looks, but not so much vice versa. Lily James is also really excellent. I could have done without Helena Bonham Carter though.

Special features include:

  • A Fairy Tale Comes to Life: Filmmakers and cast reflect on Cinderella‘s enduring power, along with the many joys and challenges of bringing this iconic tale to life.
  • Costume Test Fun: See the work of Academy Award-winning® Costume Designer Sandy Powell (The Aviator, 2004) and share some lighthearted moments with the cast.
  • Staging The Ball: You’re invited behind the scenes for the making of the Palace Ball sequence, including its spectacular set, stunning costumes and more. It’s a lavish and massive undertaking…and a magical day on set.
  • Ella’s Furry Friends: Discover how the movie’s animal stars honed their memorable performances.
  • Alternate Opening, Ella’s Childhood: View moments from Ella’s idyllic childhood that do not appear in the movie. Introduction by Branagh.
  • Frozen Fever: It’s Anna’s birthday, and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever – but when Elsa catches a cold, her powers may put more than just the party at risk.
  • Deleted Scenes with introduction by Kenneth Branagh (DMA Exclusive)

Love & Mercy (Bill Pohlad) [Limited] Rated PG-13 [120 min] – In the 1960s, Beach Boys leader Brian Wilson struggles with emerging psychosis as he attempts to craft his avant-garde pop masterpiece. In the 1980s, he is a broken, confused man under the 24-hour watch of shady therapist Dr. Eugene Landy. Starring John Cusack, Paul Dano, Elizabeth Banks, and Paul Giamatti

As far as biopics go, Love & Mercy is fairly well done but maintains the genre’s vanilla flavor. I do like that it’s more of character piece rather than showcasing events around Brian Wilson. All the performances are terrific, especially from Paul Dano. And of course the iconic Beachboys music. What I would have wanted more from Love & Mercy is for John Cusack’s older Wilson to have something else to do rather than him being a tortured character.

Special features include:

  • A California Story: Creating the Look of Love & Mercy” Featurette
  • “A-Side/B-Side: Portraying the Life of Brian Wilson” Featurette
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Audio Commentary with director/producer Bill Pohlad and executive producer/co-writer Oren Moverman

Furious 7: Extended Cut (James Wan) Rated PG-13 [137 min] – Deckard Shaw seeks revenge against Dominic Toretto and his family for the death of his brother. Starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, and Kurt Russell (Watch the trailer)

This movie is silly. I can only imagine this extended edition being even sillier. And if you’re really bold you can get the Fast & Furious 1-7 Limited Edition Collection.

Special features include:

  • Extended Cut of the Film
  • Back to the Starting Line: Producer Neal Moritz, Chris Morgan and the cast join franchise newcomer director James Wan as they look back at how far the franchise has come bring the latest installment to life.
  • Race Wars: Furious 7 brings the crew back to Race Wars, the iconic, fictional racing event from the very first film. Vin Diesel and a couple hundred friends are back for a full-throttle celebration of all things Fast with special guest-star Iggy Azalea, behind-the-scenes footage of the cars, the sweat and the girls.
  • Snatch and Grab: A behind the scenes look at shooting one of the premier action sequences in the franchise’s history.
  • Making of Fast & Furious Supercharged Ride
  • The Cars of Furious: The car coordinator and his team join the cast and filmmakers for a closer look at the film’s spectacular cars.
  • Flying Cars: People jump out of planes all the time, but not while sitting behind the wheel of a car. This entertaining featurette shows how the Furious 7 team pulled off this jaw-dropping sequence.
  • Tower Jumps: A look at how one of the most exciting stunt sequences of the film, the Abu Dhabi tower jumps, became a reality.
  • Inside the Fight: A combination of fight training footage and interviews takes viewers inside the fierce hand-to-hand fights.
  • Talking Fast: Director James Wan and the cast of Furious 7 break down the movie’s most memorable moments and chat about how the Fast franchise has evolved over the years.
  • Deleted Scenes
  • “See You Again” Official Music Video Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth

fullmetal alchemist 2003 complete series

Television Series

The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Eighth Season (Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady)  A woman who moves into an apartment across the hall from two brilliant but socially awkward physicists shows them how little they know about life outside of the laboratory. Starring Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar

I’ve given The Big Bang Theory a handful of chances despite my prejudice against the grating, pandering garbage that it is. And now in its eighth season, The Big Bang Theory continues to be that steaming pile but only now more stale. Sheldon is a terrible character who is unrelatable with sidekicks who hardly get enough to do to really resonate with them. I wish this series would end.

Special features include:

  • Shooting Stars: BBT on BBT
  • 2014 The Big Bang Theory Comic-Con Panel
  • Constellation Prize
  • Here’s To You, Carol Ann Susi
  • It’s A Quark… It’s An Atom… It’s the #BBTSuperfans!
  • Gag Reel

Fullmetal Alchemist: The Complete Series (Seiji Mizushima) Rated TV-PG [24 min] – The Elric brothers’ deciding to perform a forbidden human transmutation to bring their dead mother back, they end up losing their bodies. Now Edward must find the chemical privileges to restore their body back.Starring Vic Mignogna, Aaron Dismuke, and Romi Pak

I’m pretty glad I’ve held out for the Blu-ray release of the first Fullmetal Alchemist series. Although it’s not as epic as FMA: Brotherhood it’s still pretty decent. It’s definitely essential viewing before you watch Brotherhood. The Limited Collector’s Edition is insanely awesome, but at almost $300 it’s way too much money.

Special features include:

  • Episode Commentaries
  • The Transmutation of a Phenomenon: An Inside Look
  • Japanese Commercial
  • L’Arc~en~Ciel “Ready Steady Go” Video
  • Ura Hagane: Comedic Previews
  • Textless Opening Songs: Melissa, Ready Steady Go, Undo, Rewrite
  • Textless Closing Songs: Indelible Sin, To the Other Side of the Door, Motherland, I Will
  • U.S.Trailer

Now fans have a front-row seat to a showcase of the most prestigious Peanuts features ever assembled into one collection.

All of the specials featured in this release were recognized with either an Emmy Award win or nomination.  It’s a collection full of big laughs, best friends and life lessons that will delight the whole family.

This is a fabulous collection to own of one of the best, good-spirited pieces of entertainment out there. It’s great to be able to relive the specials I’ve seen and digest the ones I’ve never had the opportunity to. Peanuts is so wholesome to watch that you forget that about entertainment like this that doesn’t play to anything sinister or ill-willed toward the characters. A coming of age story that anyone can relate to.

  • You’re the Greatest, Charlie Brown
  • She’s a Good Skate, Charlie Brown
  • It’s Magic, Charlie Brown
  • Someday You’ll Find Her, Charlie Brown

Empire: The Complete First Season (Lee Daniels, Danny Strong) Rated TV-14 [42 min] – A father, who runs a successful music business, is diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease and has to choose one of his three sons to take over when he dies. Starring Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett, Trai Byers, Grace Gealey, Kaitlin Doubleday, and Bryshere Y. Gray

I haven’t seen Empire yet, but I am intrigued by the buzz around the one they call Cookie, played by Emmy nominee Taraji P. J Henson.

Special features include:

  • 11 Uncut Music Performances
  • Smollett (Jamal Lyon), Byshere Y. Gray (Hakeem Lyon) feat. Serayah McNeill (Tiana) Uncut Music Performance

Bellisario, Don McGill) Rated TV-14 [60 min] – The cases of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service’s Washington DC Major Case Response Team, led by Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs. Starring Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly, and Pauley Perrette

This season released earlier on DVD and now that it’s on Blu-ray you can avoid buying this terrible show on a different format!

Special features include:

  • Audio Commentary by Sean Murray, Terrence O’Hara and Christopher J. Waild

Netflix Streaming Report: Jiro Dreams of Sushi, White God, Girl Meets World, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for August 27, 2015. After the long week you deserve a relaxing staycation with a bowl of popcorn, a bucket of ice cream, and only your Netflix queue to judge you. This past week, Netflix Watch Instant has been kind enough to supply us with White God, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Girl Meets World, and more. Also, find out what’s leaving in the month of September.

white god movie

White God (Kornél Mundruczó) Rated R [121 min] – Thirteen-year-old Lili fights to protect her dog Hagen. She is devastated when her father eventually sets Hagen free on the streets. Still innocently believing love can conquer any difficulty, Lili sets out to find her dog and save him. Starring Zsófia Psotta, Sándor Zsótér, Lili Horváth, and Szabolcs Thuróczy

Far stronger visually than the message White God is trying to say within the story, but it’s a fascinating watch nonetheless. You’ll never find better dog actors than this.

jiro dreams of sushi

Jiro Dreams of Sushi (David Gelb) Rated PG [81 min] – A documentary on 85-year-old sushi master Jiro Ono, his renowned Tokyo restaurant, and his relationship with his son and eventual heir, Yoshikazu. Starring Jiro Ono, Masuhiro Yamamoto, and Daisuke Nakazama

A beautiful documentary on an aging sushi master. There may not be a strong purpose or direction, however Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a quick, interesting documentary to digest.

(Watch it now)

girl meets world

Girl Meets World (Michael Jacobs and April Kelly) Rated TV-G [23 min] – More than a decade after “Boy Meets World (1993)”, Cory and Topanga Matthews are married and have two children. Their daughter, Riley, faces life lessons through her family, friends, and school–where her father is her history teacher–as her parents did when they were younger. Starring Rowan Blanchard, Sabrina Carpenter, and Ben Savage

For everyone excited to return to the world of Topanga and Cory, now’s your chance to digest the entire new series in one fell swoop in case you missed it when it aired. I have really nothing to say about this show because I rarely watched Boy Meets World and have no real emotional ties to the series.

byzantium

Byzantium (Neil Jordan) Rated R [118 min] – Residents of a coastal town learn, with deathly consequences, the secret shared by the two mysterious women who have sought shelter at a local resort. Starring Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton, and Sam Riley

I have yet to see Byzantium, but I always remember seeing it on various lists back when it debuted in 2012. So I’m looking forward to checking it out.
