May 30th 2017
The final Bluray Tuesday of May arrives. I'm hoping you all had a fun three day Memorial Day weekend, now it's time for more bluray's to add to our growing collections. First up is 90's film Evil Ed from Arrow Video. Evil Ed looks pretty cool and I look forward to checking it out soon. Next up is The Blackcoat's Daughter aka "February". This is an interesting film, I'd pay close attention when viewing or you will miss something. I enjoyed it for the most part but I neel a second viewing before I make my final judgment. Vinegar Syndrome releases 80's cult classic The Hearse for the first time on bluray. This is also one I haven't seen but hope to change that real soon. Drama thriller Before I Fall and comedy Fist Fight round out this week's new releases. Not a big close to the May releases but next week is another story, much bigger release day. So what will you buy, rent, or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until net week.
