Boyhood – [DVD] – [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD]
Richard Linklater’s coming of age drama that follows a family over 12 years, and was filmed over that same length of time. The best reviewed film of the year, Boyhood is up for 5 Golden Globes, and will likely be nominated for that many Oscars.
The Guest – [DVD] – [Blu-ray + DVD + DIGITAL HD]
Action Thriller from the director and producers of You’re Next. A mysterious stranger shows up at the Peteron family’s home, claiming to know their oldest son from their time in Afghanastan, but not everything is as it seems.
Horns – [DVD] – [Blu-ray]
Harry Potter stars in this dark fantasy thriller, based on a novel by Joe Hill (Locke & Key). A man whose girlfriend was raped and murdered wakes up one morning with horns coming out of his forehead that give him special powers.
Lucy – [SD Download] – [HD Download]
Lucy stars Scarlett Johansson as a woman who gains the ability to use a larger percentage of her brain capacity than the rest of us. Apparently this lets her beat people up better. This is from French director Luc Besson (Fifth Element, Leon, La Femme Nikita), who hasn’t directed an action film in 15 years. Unfortunately this met with fairly negative reaction from critics and audiences alike.
Two Night Stand – [DVD]
Miles Teller is having a couple of great years, having appeared in successful Hangover knock-offs, (21 & Over, Project X) Sundance Award Winners, (The Spectacular Now, Whiplash) and even the start of a huge franchise (Divergent). He has also filmed two romantic comedies, That Awkward Moment and Two Night Stand. Neither have the pure idiocy of Hanover knock-offs or the heart of the Sundance winners, but both have some decent laughs that won’t make you hang your head in shame. This one is about a one night stand where the participants wind up getting snowed in, and are forced to extend the evening into the next evening.
