New Video Releases – 1/17/17


I’m throwing together a very quick new release list, but please don’t miss Eadweard.

Eadweard  [DVD] – [Blu-Ray] – [Digital]
directed by Kyle Rideout
written by Kyle Rideout and Josh Epstein
starring Michael Eklund and Sara Canning

– This independently produced biopic of the Eadweard Muybridge, the inventor of moving pictures is a fantastic film that has won multiple Film Festival Audience Awards (including Nashville and Maui). Of the films I’ve seen so far this month, this is my favorite.

directed by Greg Mottola
written by Michael LeSieur
starring Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm, and Gal Gadot

– I’m not sure how or why so many actors that I like are in a movie this bad. Even a surprise appearance near the end of one of my favorite comedians could not save this. 19% on Rotten Tomatoes. 34 On Metacritic. What more do you need to know?

– The director of Frozen River finally returns for her second feature. Keanu plays a defense attorney trying to get his teenage client acquitted for the murder of his wealthy father. Unfortunately it has gotten low reviews (29% on Rotten Tomatoes).
