For the Sun

Greetings! It’s a quieter week on the Blu-ray and DVD front, mostly because the big movie arriving was one of the year’s most popular. Guess it’s scaring its competition away. However, there are a couple of quirky releases in case you’re looking for something off of the beaten track. Read below to learn more about them all. So, if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!

BIG NEW RELEASES!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - The gang return in this blockbuster sequel to the big summer hit from three years ago. This time out, the eccentric Marvel comic book superheroes meet more strange...

Rating: «« out of 4 stars

Running Time: 118 min.

Movies like this are very tricky to rate. The Hitman’s Bodyguard is an over-the-top, completely chaotic buddy picture. In fact, it’s a bit of a jumble, although one that is bolstered to some degree by its two engaging leads. There are a few good laughs and the film ends with an impressively and entertainingly exaggerated climax. Whether that compensates for an awkward opening act and numerous flat moments along the way will ultimately depend on the viewer.

Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) is a down-on-his-luck bodyguard, struggling to get on with his life after losing a client and his protection agency business in a disastrous...

Running Time: 119 min.

It’s hard not to feel a bit of deja vu while watching the new crime-comedy Logan Lucky; it appears that director Steven Soderbergh has seemingly fashioned a remake of his own remake of Ocean’s Eleven (there’s even a joke in the movie referencing that film). As a result, the meta concept for this feature won’t provide many surprises story wise. However, the ensemble cast are so amusing and having such a great time onscreen that the film ultimately works as an enjoyable lark.

Jimmy Logan (Channing Tatum) is a miner doing his best to make ends meet and live up to his responsibilities with daughter Sadie (Farrah MacKenzie) and...

Another busy week with loads of new releases; read about all of the highlights below. So, if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!

BIG NEW RELEASES!

Alien: Covenant - This sequel to 2012’s Prometheus introduces a new crew heading out to colonize a planet on the far reaches of the universe. They encounter a distress call and head out to investigate the signal. Once there, they come under attack from a menacing and familiar force. The movie earned generally positive reviews with some caveats. Several stated that it couldn’t quite decide if it wanted to be a Prometheus sequel or a straight up scary Alien film...
