September 13th


Year: 2011
Newly Released On: DVD/Blu-Ray
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 77%
Synopsis: Thor is a powerful warrior in the realm of Asgard but in his arrogance he accidentally reiginites an anicent war and his Father Odin banishes him to Earth. While struggling to adapt, an evil force sets it sights on the planet.

Citizen Kane

Year: 1941
Newly Released On: Blu-Ray
Rotten Tomatoes rating: N/A
Synopsis: Often regarded one of the best films ever made, Citizen Kane is the story of Charles Foster Kane, a reviled and wealthy newspaper magnate who, at his moment of death, whispers the words “rosebud”. The rest of the film then follows a newspaper as they attempt to find out what they meant and in so, we find out the story of his life. Is it the best film ever made? I don’t think I could make that judgement but it is definitely an excellent film nonetheless.


Year: 1996
Newly Released On: Blu-Ray
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 89%
Synopsis: Now this one’s a hard film to describe, but it’s certainly a quintessential British film. Ewan McGregor plays a drug addicted youth who struggles to get by in a crime ridden area of Edinborough. Eventually he decides to try and go clean, but as you might have guessed, it’s not just as easy as saying no. Dark and funny, it’s probably Danny Boyle’s best film.

Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop

Year: 2011
Newly Released On: DVD/Blu-Ray
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 79%
Synopsis: A culmination of Conan’s controversial exit from NBC’s Tonight Show, this documentary follows him as he went on a 32-city music and comedy show. It’s meant to be a great insight into the creative process and mind of Conan O’Brien.

September 16h

Star Wars Complete Saga

Year: 1977-2005
Newly Released On: Blu-Ray
Rotten Tomatoes rating: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO/10
Synopsis: If you’ve never watched Star Wars then I’d be a bit concerned about how you ended up on this website in the first place. All you need to know about this new Blu-Ray edition is that the 2006 Laserdisc Transfers of the original versions aren’t included, Greedo still shoots first, the Jabba’s Palace song is still there, Obi Wan’s cry to fend off the Tusken raiders has been changed again and Vader now goes NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO at the end of Return Of The Jedi. The upside is that the two trilogies are availably separately so you can just get the Original, but if you don’t like the idea of Lucas making even more dumb changes or additions then please, DON’T BUY IT, because then he’s fully justified in making them.
