Movies on Blu-ray

Pitch Perfect 2 (Elizabeth Banks) Rated PG-13 [115 min] – After a humiliating command performance at Lincoln Center, the Barden Bellas enter an international competition that no American group has ever won in order to regain their status and right to perform. Starring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Adam Devine, Hana Mae Lee, and Ester Dean [Watch the trailer]

With how surprised I was by the first film, blown away really, I still kept cautiously optimistic about the release of Pitch Perfect 2. Could lightning strike twice? Would Elizabeth Banks’ directorial debut be any good? They hooked me with the first film, but would there be any gas left in the tank for a sequel? Honestly, it’s OK. The jokes are there, but it’s become a little too cartoonish. The Barden Bellas have basically gone full Glee. There isn’t as much heart or direction and Beca gets tossed every which way. I like Pitch Perfect 2 for the silly entertainment that it is, but I wanted it to be better. I need more. And I was a little let down. But damn are there a lot of special features to make up for the fact. [Read my full review]

Moonrise Kingdom: Criterion Collection (Wes Anderson) Rated PG-13 [94 min] – A pair of young lovers flee their New England town, which causes a local search party to fan out to find them. Starring Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Ed Norton, and Jason Schwartzman

A Criterion release with all the fixins. Moonrise Kingdom is a great movie. If you haven’t seen it, it’s now on Netflix. If you love the movie, I’d suggest seeking out this Criterion edition due to all the awesome extras.

Special features include:

  • Restored 2K digital transfer, supervised by director Wes Anderson, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray

  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Geoffrey O’Brien, plus a map of New Penzance Island and other ephemera

Chain of Command (Kevin Carraway) Rated R – A special operative witnesses the brutal slaying of his brother right after returning home from his third tour of duty. He finds himself a target of a deadly conspiracy so vast that there’s no one to trust but himself. Starring Michael Jai White, Max Ryan, and Steve Austin

Chain of Command is your run of the mill B-action movie. There isn’t anything special that makes it stand apart from the genre nor does it try to. Every bit of the film is generic down to its core. A harmless romp, Chain of Command doesn’t say much of anything and you could find better uses of your time. I like Steve Austin because his acting is hilarious to watch, but other than that I can’t think of any redeeming qualities for this movie.

Television Series

Arrow: The Complete Third Season (Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg) – Oliver Queen’s Arrow has become a hero to the citizens of Starling City – but he will quickly discover that doesn’t mean he can lead a normal life in the spectacular third season of the hit series based on the DC Comics character. A new wave of diabolical masterminds – including the insidious and pervasive havoc wrought by the lethal and secretive League of Assassins – threatens all he holds dear. Team Arrow has grown into a powerful force, but the dangers and secrets that bind them together often put them at odds with each other, as the shadows cast by Malcolm Merlyn and the omnipotent Ra’s al Ghul trigger shifts in loyalties and alliances that test them to their core. Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, and David Ramsey

I’ve been resistant of Arrow since its inception. I was burned out by Smallville and being that it is on The CW doesn’t help its case. Also, the outcry of love for Arrow at San Diego Comic-Con didn’t sit right with me. Perhaps I was afraid the hype would be too much and I didn’t want to be let down. It could be also that I have no affinity for the character as well. But given the opportunity, I finally decided to give it a go. The first season is very dry. It doesn’t really get going until the last five episodes. The second season definitely amps up the energy and finds the much needed personality it was lacking in the first season. Now with an established fan base, this third season is stretching its legs and going really heavy in the DC mythology. I found it mildly enjoying as it acts as a true testament to how on board you are with the characters and whether or not you’re willing to go on this journey with them. It doesn’t feel as rewarding as the second season, but it’s not bad.

Special features include:

  • Second Skins: Creating The Uniforms of Arrow
  • Nanda Parbat: Constructing The Villain’s Lair
  • Two Arrow Audio Commentaries
  • Arrow at Comic-Con 2014
  • The Man Beneath the Suit – Atom’s First Flight
  • Gag Reel
  • Deleted Scenes

The Flash: The Complete First Season (Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, and Andrew Kreisberg) Rated TV-PG [43 min] – Central City forensic investigator Barry Allen is, always charming and – as a result of a scientific experiment gone awry – now the fastest man alive! He’s The Flash, zigzagging through the action-packed new series from the creative team behind Arrow and based on the supersonic DC Comics character. With his life shadowed by his mother’s murder and his father wrongly convicted of the crime, Barry finds that his newfound power of super speed grants him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Barry quickly discovers he’s not the only “metahuman” created by the explosive disaster – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Now, to protect the innocent, Barry and his close friends who know his secret, race to combat evildoers in one astonishing adventure after another. Starring Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavangh, and Jesse L. Martin

While I was busy burning through Arrow, I made time to check out The Flash as I have heard delightfully positive words spoken about the spin-off series. I’ve made it through half of the first season and I am really liking what I’ve seen. There’s far more personality and fun to be had in The Flash than its brooding green-hooded counterpart. There’s a great balance of tone if you like both series. What’s most interesting about The Flash is the scientific details it squeezes in to ensure the physics of the character makes sense. The biggest issue I’m having is with the rotating flavor of the week villain. It gives our hero a fast learning curve to work with, but doesn’t give Barry a lot of time to breath and reflect. It’s always on to the next one. The story progression involving his mother’s murder is exciting and builds up a unique through line, whereas the plot against the Glades in the first season of Arrow felt like it was left on the back burner. The Flash is a grand ol’ time with a lot to gain and easily bingeable.

Special features include:

  • The Fastest Man Alive!
  • Creating the Blur
  • The Chemistry of Emily and Grant Screen Test
  • Behind the Story: The Trickster Returns!
  • DC Comics Night at Comic-Con 2014 Presenting Gotham, The Flash, Constantine and Arrow
  • Audio Commentary
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel
