June 21st 2016
It's that time of the week again. This week is very light on releases, but after a few heavy release weeks we can use a slight break. Scream Factory releases Alicia Silverstone's 90's thriller The Crush for the first time on bluray. I'm looking forward to picking this up and re-watching it sometime this week. SciFi drama film Midnight Special hits shelves as well. Blind buy for me this week, I've heard some good things about this one. On the comedy side we have Sacha Baron Cohen's new film The Brothers Grimsby and My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. Since it's such a light week I decided to add Korea's Nova Media exclusive of the the classic A Tales Of Two Sisters which looks pretty nicely put together. So what will you be buying, renting or skipping this week? Let us know in the comments and don't forget to check out our Instagram page here. Until next week.
