December 27th 2016
I'm hoping everyone had a great Christmas weekend! Now those retailer gift cards you may have gotten will come in handy because Bluray Tuesday is back. Light week for sure for new titles. Ti West's new film In a Valley of Violence is a number one pickup for me this week. It's gotten great reviews and Ti West doesn't disappoint. Blind buy for me today. When the Bough Breaks is the next new release today. It looks like a Fatal Attraction kinda thriller but I'm hoping for a different outcome. These kind of films may be entertaining but are essentially the same for me. American Honey has overwhelmingly great reviews and is one I will definitely check out in the near future. Scream Factory releases 1967's The House That Screamed for the first time on bluray. Never heard of this title but it looks interesting. Last but not least, today the conspiracy thriller Snowden, which is based on real events is released. What will you Buy, Rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Five different titles released today which all seem interesting and at least a good rental. Today also marks the final Bluray Tuesday of 2016! Man, time has flown by. Thanks for reading weekly and checking out our site. I'll see you guys next year!
In a Valley of Violence: Amazon - $14.99
A mysterious drifter (Ethan Hawke) and his dog journey toward Mexico through the barren desert of the Old West. Hoping to shorten their trip, they cut through a large valley, landing in the forgotten town of Denton -- a place now known as a valley of violence. The once-popular mining town is nearly abandoned and controlled by a group of misfits and nitwits, including the seemingly untouchable Gilly (James Ransone), the troublemaking son of the town's difficult marshal.

American Honey: Amazon - $21.99
Star (Sasha Lane), an adolescent girl from a troubled home, runs away with a traveling sales crew that drives across the American Midwest selling subscriptions door-to-door. Finding her feet in this gang of teenagers, one of whom is Jake (Shia LaBeouf), she soon gets into the group's lifestyle of hard-partying nights, law-bending days and young love.
The House That Screamed (1967): Amazon - $19.99
Mrs. Fourneau owns and runs a school for wayward girls in France. Her absolute discipline has fostered a social order among the girls with rampant sex, lesbianism and torture the norm. Mrs. Fourneau also has an adolescent son she tries to keep isolated from the young women lest he be tainted by sexual relations; she explains that he must wait for a girl "just like his mother". Meanwhile, girls are "running away" (being murdered) one by one, with their corpses and any evidence of their outcome not to be found.
Snowden: Amazon - $19.99
Snowden, the politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world. He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others. No matter which you believe, the epic story of why he did it, who he left behind, and how he pulled it off makes for one of the most compelling films of the year.
