December 4th 2018
This has been a great year for releases so far. It feels like this year has flown by, now we are in the last few weeks of 2018. The first week of December kicks off with The Conjuring Universe spinoff film The Nun. While this wasn't my favorite of franchise, I'd definitely recommend it. Scream Factory releases indie sci-fi horror film Elizabeth Harvest. This has an interesting premise, I'm looking forward to checking out. The 6th in the Mission Impossible series hits shelves today, Mission Impossible: Fallout. This sequel was a crazy theater experience, there's lots of action, insane stunts and twists that keep you on the edge of your seat. I would recommend checking this one out this week. Best Buy will carry their usual exclusive steelbook for this release. With the announcement of the CGI Lion King released, Disney is yet again re releasing the original animated classic The Lion King in 4K. Stop by Best Buy for an exclusive steelbook or Target for their exclusive which comes with art cards. Rounding out the week is the second seasons of Westworld and The Handmaiden's Tale, and the not so funny comedy The Happytime Murders. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
