The very first Bluray Tuesday arrives! I'm hoping everyone had a great New Year weekend. 2017 starts off really slow with only one main pickup for me this week which is Blair Witch. Blair Witch (2016) is a direct sequel to 1999's breakout original. If you missed out on our review check it out here. The rest of the films on the lineup for today I don't know too much about. The Hollow looks interesting and I may check it out in the near future but definitely not a day one pickup for me. Denial has gotten some good reviews online and has some good actors so it looks promising as well. Family comedy film of the week is Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, and it looks pretty funny with a diary of a wimpy kid vibe to it. Last but not least, in celebration of Mariah Carey's infamous NYE performance a few nights ago, is Glitter. This is the first time this is on Bluray from Mill Creek so I'm sure the transfer isn't the best but if you are a Mariah Carey fan it's only 7 bucks this week. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
Blair Witch (2016): Amazon - $19.99
A young man and his friends venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mystery surrounding his missing sister. Many believe her disappearance 17 years earlier is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when two locals act as guides through the dark and winding woods. As the night wears on, a visit from a menacing presence soon makes them realize that the legend is all too real, and more sinister than they could have ever imagined.
